LIGHT THE FUSE

Dynamite comics are releasing a special acetate cover for Vampirella #6 meaning they will lose money on every issue sold. But to them they are happy to do it as they think the marketing and quality cover on the shelf are worth it. The covers, drawn by former DeviantArt user Artgerm, are awesome and honestly they're totally worth checking out but is releasing a cover that makes you lose money on a comic book a good idea? The talk about the comics industry is always, they're losing money, the industry is shrinking, but maybe they're all wrong if someone is willing to lose money like this. Also watching the rise of Artgerm over the past few years is awesome, he started out as a fan artist and slowly he's become one of the hottest cover artists in the game.

CHICKEN SANDWICHES WAR

So are the Popeye's chicken sandwiches ever coming back? Every time I look online to have one of them delivered they are sold out. But in the meantime twice Chic Fil A has twice had free chicken sandwiches delivered to my house while Popeyes can't even sell their sandwiches. It's certainly an interesting dichotomy in how two businesses are run isn't it. One company is trying to measure up and the other company is taking victory laps while still being closed on Sundays.

RUNAWAYS

The return of Runaways is being promoted here lately which means it must be due back on Hulu soon which is great news as the last two seasons has been great, except the end set up an awkward season of body snatching potentially, which isn't fun television-wise. I never really enjoy those type of manufactured suspenseful moments but these guys have done a great job so far so I'm willing to ride with them for one more season especially with Cloak and Dagger coming to town!

NOT THAT YOU ASKED

Work is going great on the second issue of Another Day at the Office, the comedy about a cop in a city full of superheroes. We've gotten penciled pages in and those are going through corrections and we're in talks with a colorist, which is the next step in all of this. I'm hoping to start talking to publishers and hopefully maybe wind up at one of the smaller publishers with this project.

Feel free to check out my brand new comic book Another Day at the Office or buy a shirt from Side Hustle Ts where some proceeds help people struggling with cancer or listen to Nerd Thug Radio. Thoughts, complaints, events and comments can be sent to corydlg@gmail.com.

Rich Eisen said this week that he's hearing from NFL sources that Deshaun Watson will be settling his civil cases soon and lays out why he believes Watson will be promptly traded this season. The thought of Watson playing for another NFL team in 2021 seems shocking, but it's not impossible.

Be sure to check out the video to learn more about the timetable of a Watson trade, and the two teams that seem to have the most interest in trading for Deshaun.
