It's funny, ever since I started this comic every Marvel rumor/announcement/release fills me with a weird combination of anticipatory hype and creeping dread. On the one hand, I don't want to jinx anything or come off as super-full of myself presuming that there's going to be any major continued interest in reading this comic in the however many years it's going to take me just to get through Phase Three. But on the other hand, I do
have at least a basic outline for just about every project that's currently out, and honestly, seeing how far out in advance I can connect the dots has been a lot of fun. Still, some of their more off the wall announcements tend to elicit a reaction of "Oh man that's super-cool!" followed by "Oh man how the actual hell is that
gonna work?!?". To wit, my increasingly panicked reaction to all of Marvel's Disney+ announcements today went something to the tune of:
--> Marvel: ECHO
--> Me: Oh, that's official then? Guess she's gonna need to be a PC. No problem, Hawkeye comes out soon, I can figure this out.
--> Marvel: AGATHA HOUSE OF HARKNESS
--> Me: Okay, that one was trade-confirmed a while ago, already have the Wandavision outline mostly
--> Marvel: MARVEL ZOMBIES
--> Me: Echhhhhhhhhhhhhh, alright, I kinda
had What If figured out, I think I can spin this one out into something possibly-
--> Marvel: SPIDER-MAN FRESHMAN YEAR
--> Me: Aggggggh, this is a prequel? But I already... I thought No Way Home was going to be the pain in the-
--> Marvel: X-MEN 97
--> Me: ... Nope. I ain't even think I'm touching that one. But maybe-NO. STOP IT. GET TO PHASE TWO, THEN WE'LL TALK.
Anyways, there wasn't really much of an underlying point to this whole thing, now that I've realized blog posts are a thing I just figured "hey this might be a halfway funny thing that doesn't give away too
many future plans. Definitely not anything in the immediate future". Hopefully it is that thing. Anyways, thanks for reading, feel free to comment and let me know what you thought about the announcements.
