Newsletter #24: DC MEniverse

Yeah, I got ideas.

WOW WHAT A WEEK EH

The comics world was rocked with the news that the (co?) Publisher of DC Comics, Dan Didio, has been let go. Was it for taking away Superman’s outside underwear and then putting them back like some kind of pervert? Hard to say. But it has stirred up a lot of chatter on the socials about me filling his role. It’s very kind of everyone to think of me for that position, but I’m perfectly happy being freelance and desperately searching for my next paycheck like a wild animal.

But! I do have some ideas for DC if they decide to bring me in as a consultant.

  • Make the blue on Superman’s legs into chaps, so the red underwear is actual underwear like a normal fucking guy

  • You want to really revolutionize secret identities? Make Superman’s secret identity “Batman”.

  • Like a real hawk, Hawkman should be shitting on people.

  • Batman should marry Catwoman

  • We. Need. More. Robins.

  • Aquaman should start calling all dude superheroes “Landman” just to show them how stupid it is.

  • Fire Matt Fraction for making Jimmy Olsen into a fucking joke!!!!

  • Buy “Spiderman.” That character is awesome


WEIRD THEY HAVEN’T OFFERED YOU THE JOB

I know, right?

SO WHAT’S NEW THIS WEEK

Oh, wow, it’s a BIG WEEK! First up, I done drew a book again! SEX CRIMINALS #27 is out and it’s just a delight and also riveting and also you should buy it.

But wait! You can buy my classic REGULAR COVER, or be BOLD and DIFFERENT and get the XXX VARIANT!

Aud Kock really outdid themselves here. It’s an absolutely beautiful cover and also absolutely NSFW so please be careful out there and don’t show any cops it while screaming “YAY SEX CRIMINALS.”

But wait! There’s more!

X-MEN / FANTASTIC FOUR #2 is out today!

It’s beautiful. Just beautiful. And there are exciting bits and saucy bits and it’s a real non-stop issue so I hope all you X-heads and 4-heads out there really enjoy it.

But WAIT! THERE’S MORE!

INVADERS: DEAD IN THE WATER is out today! Our big conclusion, collecting the back-half of our 12-issue run! It is very satisfying if you’re into being satisfied.

The preview image for this collection is 100% accurate. It contains only one extremely thick page. Enjoy!


CHIP ANSWERS QUESTIONS

Every week I’ll answer one POLITE and RESPECTFUL question about my life as a “writer” or about my DC publishing ideas. The email is zdarskyletters@gmail.com.

Dear Chip,

Will you create a fake Matt Fraction out of lollipop sticks for company following the conclusion of sex criminals?

-Glenn


Hi Glenn,

That’s actually not needed as Matt has already sent me a 3-D printed version of himself, giving me constant encouragement.

Cheers,
Chip
