"[This book is] trying to point out that life doesn't end at grim and gritty. A little fun never hurt anyone." - Keith Giffen

A bit more from issue 1...



"Well, it’s Giffen-DeMatteis-Maguire doing what we do: high adventure through a lens of what I like to call neo-vaudeville. Lee and Kirby by way of Woody Allen and Monty Python, all of it rooted, first and foremost, in the characters. That said, this is a very different group—there’s no Beetle or Booster in sight—so they’ll dictate the tone as much as we do." - J.M. DeMatteis

"Absolutely. Why mess with what works? Now I know there are certain, quite vocal, folks out there who want their comics grim and gritty and heart attack serious and bleak and wretched but those aren't the readers we're shooting for." - Keith Giffen

The break-out character from Geoff Johns' Green Lantern run explodes into avaricious action in his own brand-new series!



'Larfleeze is a chance to do a fun comic book, surrounding him with new characters, new villains, new ideas, new sections of the galaxy. New, new, new, new, new, new, new.

'I guarantee six major, new, cosmic villains in the first 12 issues, as well as alien worlds and all kinds of craziness with Larfleeze.'

'And fun. No deep thoughts, no misdirection or trickery. You just come in, there's Larfleeze and look! He's having an adventure, with a bunch of exciting new characters and concepts. At the end of the book, you say, "Yeah, I had a good time reading that book."'

The Life and Times of Savior 28 was a five issue miniseries from IDW, written by J.M. DeMatteis and drawn by Mike Cavallaro. DeMatteis based the idea on his original plans for CAPTAIN AMERICA #300, where Cap would start his own peace movement and get assassinated.

J.M. DeMatteis' excellent origin for the Red Skull expanded on what Jack Kirby had already established and made him even more twisted and unredeemable. I love this Red Skull because it shows that from an early time there was something deeply wrong with his head. DeMatteis doesn't really try to psychoanalyse him away - he just writes him as being consumed by an incomprehensible hatred for all life, including his own, a hatred he then channeled into wonderfully horrible projects.
