In other "pop" news...




















A Comics Blog has posted that Gail Simone is writing a comic book featuring Avril Lavigne. (originally found at blog@newsarama.com) Apparently invading my manga aisle wasn't enough...

Gail herself posted a response at scans_daily - (it was stating that the song has a decidedly stalker feel to it)

Bingo. The video is surprisingly black-hearted as well.

And I have to admit, when someone offers me the crazy assignment that should not possibly work, that is catnip to me.

There's a long story why I took this job, but I had a lot of fun and it turned out as a very interesting experiment.

Outreach, outreach, outreach.

Gail

Gail...you make me a torn little fangirl. You singlehandedly made me adore Birds of Prey again and recommend your run to other geeks. This is a serious stretch. Is this like one of those 'How much do you love me?' questions? Are you holding chocolates behind your back or a flyswatter to beat me about the head and face with? ?_? You've made me invoke the Biting Pear of Salamanca.

I like her writing in Wonder Woman, but under no circumstances will I ever read a comic about Avril. Is there even a market for something like that -- I thought even teenagers quit listening to her.
