My Predictions for 2006

It's easy enough to make predictions about what will happen in the upcoming year. If Jeanne Dixon can manage it, where's the challenge?

So here are my fearless predictions for the upcoming year:

  • Joe Quesada will decide that subtlety is the key, and will no longer use mad hyperbole to pimp Marvel's upcoming books. His interviews will merely discuss release dates, and plot details.


  • Larry Young will do the same.


  • Jim Roeg will start writing 25-word capsule reviews containing "roxx", "suxx", and "booty".


  • Tom Spurgeon will dedicate a five part series to an examination of Spider-Man's new costume.


  • Speakeasy will usher in a Golden Age of comics publishing with stunning new concepts and strategies that benefit creators, retailers, and consumers.


  • Buzzscope will shy away from controversy, preferring to regurgitate press releases and hype.


  • Larry Young will do the same.


  • DC's rumored title featuring a lesbian superhero will be progress, not fan service.


  • It will turn out that the kids from Elk's Run are all superpowered mutants, who will save the world. They will then get together and put on a show. In a barn.

That would solve the damn 3rd Act problems I'm fighting... Hmm....

Think of the pitch possibilities:

"OK. It's X-Men meets Mickey Rooney. Get it?"
