Matt Kindt To Write The Marco Rudy Spider-Man Mini-Series
Last week we talked about an upcoming Spider-Man mini-series from Marvel drawn by Swamp Thing's Marco Rudy.
Well now I understand it is being written by Matt Kindt, who has recently been writing Frankenstein: Agent Of SHADE.
Marvel do seem to be using DC as a headhunting service right now. Only, without paying them or anything.
Kindt is better known for his graphic novels, Pistolwhip, Mephisto And The Empty Box, Pistolwhip 2, Two Sisters and the Eisner Award-winning Super Spy. Vertigo published his comic Revolver and Mind MGMT is currently being published by Dark Horse.

- gnawing hungrily in inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond time and space
Marvel hires people working for DC, DC hires people working for Marvel, both are harvesting the creative pool of Image and the other Indie-publishers.
Is it really necessary to try to put a spin on everything?"We see things only as we are constructed to see them, and can gain no idea of their absolute nature. With five feeble senses we pretend to comprehend the boundlessly complex cosmos."
or in other words:
"Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn. Iä! Iä! Cthulhu fhtagn!"

Conflicting for me as a fan of his independent stuff. I hope DC & Marvel fans appreciate it.

Ah, but his independent stuff rolls on! I'm sure the check and name / brand inflation is nice. Does it add to his indie sales? Probably not a whole lot, but a few more here and a few more there and soon you have 'a following'.
Also, Happy New Year, gang!

Matt Kindt's MIND MGMT has been amazing.
Don't really care what he does with Spider-Man.

Me: Quick Steve, tell us something only Steve Wacker would know.
Steve Wacker: [The Marvel relaunch] secretly is a reboot.
Me: If you mean the continuity won't match up with any of the preceding issues, anyone could have predicted that.

Matt Kindt's a great writer. Mind MGMT continues to blow my mind on a regular basis. Easily a comics highpoint of 2012.
If this is a $3.99 book, I'll wait for the trade. (Marvel price points are just silly. You'd think with a book as awesome as Hawkeye at $2.99 Marvel would take another look at their line). If it's a $2.99 book, I'm all over it - and will also probably pick up the trade later.
