And by “couple” I mean “three, more or less.”

Okay, just a couple of things today:

1. Don’t forgot to contribute your 2024 comic industry predictions here, so long as you follow those important rules listed there!

One additional rule I’m going to have to add is to please keep extra non-prediction posts out of that comments section. I appreciate the enthusiasm, but let’s keep it uncluttered! Thanks, pals.

2. Look, if you haven’t gone to kwakk.info in a while, it’ll do you some good to pop back in. This is the fanzine text search index, including Amazing Heroes, Comics Journal, and many more! I hope this site is allowed to remain online by the various copyright holders, as it’s such a valuable resource.

I have many of these fanzines myself, but when I need to refer to an article from one of them I’ve had to depend on my slowly fading memory as well as just plain ol’ digging through them page by page. This site certain makes research easier.

3. I don’t think I even knew a Zatanna movie was even planned in the first place. Sounds like another casualty of the James Gunn DC Media regime, as the focus is on the projects under his purview, which the Zatanna flick was not. Ah well.

Still not convinced the Gunn films are going to fare any better in a movie marketplace that seems increasingly less impressed with superhero product. Particularly DC films, though Marvel seems to be having its own uphill battle with its properties (with a couple of notable exceptions, yes).

Related: I didn’t realize the Aquaman sequel opened last weekend. Not the strongest start, but the first didn’t come charging out of the gate, either. Seems unlikely it’s gonna hit the billion dollar mark too, though.

    I hadn’t heard of that Zatanna movie, either, but now that I know it could have been, I want it more than… well, more than whatever DC movies are likely to actually show up in my local theaters.

    Me either! And I doubt it would have been successful. I like the character, but I don’t see that as something that’s ever going to be a big hit.

    “I didn’t realize the Aquaman sequel opened last weekend”

    I honestly think their wave of massive success is over, and they outta give superhero movies a rest, for like, five years. AFTER they release Deadpool 3.
