I think I hate April Fools Day. No, really, I hate April Fools Day. Not because of being pranked or anything, because for the most part, everyone is too lazy to do anything like that. More because everyone with a Twitter account sees it as an opportunity to write lies. Which for you, isn’t really a problem. Except what I do is read all the news released by various organizations and present it to you in a nice digest form. And I just don’t have the time, patience or desire to figure out what’s real and what is someone’s idea of a joke. Really, who is crazy enough to try to release any kind of important news on April Fools Day anyway? You know no one is going to believe you, right?
I tell you what — come back tomorrow, you’ll have news. Come back Sunday, you’ll probably get an awesome video, assuming I don’t screw things up. Today though, your April Fools joke is you came here thinking you were getting news, and you get an anti-April Fools screed. So go have fun at your WonderCons and GIJoeCons and Anime Detours and what not. We’ll be back with me photoshopping my Halloween costume into photos of Star Trek legends next week.
Marvel released an image of Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull in “Captain America: First Avenger” today. I’ll be damned, he looks like the Red Skull. Yay! As opposed o looking like, I don’t know, Batroc the Leaper. AND ON TO THE NEWS!
- Good news to San Francisco-based fans of “Pedro and Me” and “Firearm,” Judd Winick and James Robinson are signed for WonderCon. What? You don’t remember Firearm? Robinson’s breakout book from Malibu? You all disappoint me so.
