George Perez Retires From Comics

The Beat:

George Pérez, the legendary artist behind some of the biggest events in comics history, has formally announced his retirement from comics.

Truly one of the greatest of all-time.

I recommend you track down his Kurt Busiek written run of Avengers, where basically the goal seemed to be to get Perez to draw as many characters per scene as possible. Awe-inspiring pure comics goodness.

Netflix is Looking to Reboot UNSOLVED MYSTERIES


Unsolved Mysteries is back after Netflix revived the long-running true crime and paranormal franchise.

The series, which was hosted by Robert Stack and ran for over 500 episodes between 1987 and 2010, is being refreshed by Stranger Things EP Shawn Levy and his company 21 Laps Entertainment and Netflix.

Two thoughts:

  1. If they drop, or otherwise alter, the absolutely iconic and terror-inducing theme music, heads will roll.
  2. Who the hell can they get to host who would hold a candle to Robert Stack? The Dennis Farina years are absolute garbage. My suggestion? Lance Reddick.

Entertainment Weekly Reveals Rob Liefeld’s New X-Men Character – MAJOR X

The reason that excitement hasn’t gone away is that Liefeld’s not done making new characters. EW can exclusively announce that Liefeld is writing a new Marvel comic miniseries called Major X. The series will be six issues shipping twice a month from April through June, and will focus on the arrival of the title character, a mutant warrior from another realm, into the Marvel Universe.

It’s worth reading the full article just for the intro, where Rob is hyper-aware of the ‘Rob Liefeld Name’ meme going across Twitter.

Also, this character kinda looks like a Liefeld self-aware parody…makes me think it’s a character we know under the mask/helmet.
