Eye of the Dragon

Fantastic News!

I've procrastinated on a lot of LJ posts lately. I was going to post a link extolling Alan Moore's V for Vendetta to celebrate Guy Fawkes Day, and wanted tp write something thoughtful and profound for Veteran's Day -- I just never got around to it. I have a few thoughts on the Matrix Trilogy that I plan to share at some point, too. But not today.

With all of the compelling, dramatic world events of the day, what can finally motivate me to fire up LochJournal and whip out a comment?

Only this:

Mark Waid will continue to write Fantastic Four!!

"Fandom spoke and so did our own hearts, and we listened to both," said Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada, regarding the creative team's less-than-popular exit a few month's ago. "Never let it be said that at Marvel we can't own up to our mistakes. I'm just thrilled that Mark and Mike decided to stay after all the craziness that went down. Fandom rejoice, it's salad days for the FF you know and love!"

Regular readers will recall my disappointment at Waid's departure.

Of course, the announcement of his "return" was back in September. I have got to keep closer tabs on the comic sites.
