Lying In The Gutters – 23rd February 2015 – From Baymax To Oscar

87th-academy-awards-showComicsPRO merged into the Oscars this weekend as Big Hero 6 walked away with Best Animated Movie, though Marvel’s other movies managed to cannibalise each others votes and fail at the FX level. Chris Claremont was watching too. On Facebook,

This is the first time I’ve ever watched the Academy Awards with some (admittedly *very* tiny) teeth in the game. Two nominations relating to work that I’ve done and characters I created. And go figure, one of them actually won: Big Hero 6! (Wasabi no Ginga and, of course, Fred — who was co-created, and named, by my wife Beth, you go girl!) Have to admit, the moment felt totally cool. Kind’a hope they do a sequel. They’re a cool team of characters; it’d be fun to see them in future adventures
