Here we go, ladles and jellyspoons!  The final night of Chanukkah and Christmas Eve commingled, with Kwanzaa incoming and Festivus in our rear-view, and all I really want for the holidays is some pizza.  Well, some pizza and perhaps a nice chocolate soda.  And some flapjacks.  Also, I want a Fat Cobra solo series, written by somebody fun like Kurt Busiek or Bryan K. Vaughan or his creator, Matt Fraction and art by Alan Davis, maybe.  And perhaps some cheese.  I like cheese.  But, back to that whole Fat Cobra thing, I think that might have the makings of an interesting kung-fu query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) has a list of fave-raves who need a fresh start, including Texas Twister, Mon-El and that guy with the headache from the cover of ‘Action Comics #1’, asking: If you got to pick one show, book, comic or other fictional thing to get a relaunch in the new year, what do you pick and why?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Since they just cancelled All-Star Western, I want it to return as proper weird western book, with Jonah Hex as main star, but also cameos by Tallulah Black, El Diablo and Nighthawk & Cinnamon.

  2. The Syfy TV series Alphas. I’d even be happy with a mini-series or a few TV movies to at least resolve the cliffhanger ending of season 2. And since it was part of a shared universe with Eureka and Warehouse 13 (which at least had endings, thankfully), they could throw in a few guest appearances.

    I also want MGM to take the Stargate SG-1 franchise back off the shelf and finish the SG-1/Atlantis movie that was in pre-production, as well as adding something to resolve the cliffhanger of SGU.
