Thursday Morning Superhero: Good News Edition

 As we get closer and closer to the end of 2020, we can all use some good news.  I wanted to share some good comic book news in my second to last TMS post this year. 

Good News #1 - Beef Bros on Kickstarter!

Aubrey Sitterson has team up with Tyrell Cannon and with colors from Fico Ossio to deliver the feel good book of the decade!  Dubbed as an aspirational leftist superhero comic featuring a pair of himbos who take on sketchy cops and landlords.  The colors and art are bodacious and Sitterson is challenging his supporters with a variety of beefer challenges to spread the positivity that is enveloped in this book.  I thoroughly enjoyed Sitterson's "The Comic Book Story of Professional Wrestling" and "No One Left to Fight" which also featured Ossio on colors.  Join me as a fellow Beefer!

Good News #2 - The return of Sweet Tooth and Netflix news!

Earlier this year I mentioned that Sweet Tooth was optioned by Netflix, but now production has started in New Zealand and I am hopeful that this will translate well to the small screen. In potentially more exciting news, Sweet Tooth: The Return dropped yesterday and I cannot wait to explore the world that Lemire created again. I will admit that due to the distraction of the news cycle I did not make it to my LCS to pick up a copy, but I cannot wait to read it later this week.  

Good News #3 - SDCC Holiday Merchandise!

Even though the conventions to 2020 went online, I still find joy every time I see the SDCC logo or Toucan. My son's virtual background on Zoom is the San Diego Convention Center so when I saw that SDCC was offering holiday merchandise I started immediately planning some Christmas gifts. I particularly like the denim jacket, the Hall H pin, and Holiday Ornament.  The "Front of the Line" pin is a bit of a taunt, but I thought that was also a nice touch.
