Image revealed its plans to kill off a redheaded female character in a teaser revealed today.
Robert Kirkman has revealed his true colors as a thief in the latest teaser for Invincible's upcoming 100th episode. Kirkman, who allegedly stole the rights of The Walking Dead from Tony Moore, revealed that he was also in possession of a missing page of the fabled Marvel Playbook, a mythical guide to writing popular comic events.
The fabled playbook, which has guided Marvel through every major comic event since Avengers Disassembled, contains legendary knowledge which allows the possessor of the book to write basically the same comic book stories over and over without fanboys ever noticing. But with the book now incomplete, Marvel Comics has recently seen DC, whose own playbook is still pristine and untouched, just like its readers, overtake them in comic book sales.
Meanwhile, Kirkman is planning to step on Marvel's turf by killing noted redhead Atom Eve in Invincible #100. "Killing Redheads for Shock Value" is a known Marvel trope used by the company many times in its history. However, many analysts noted that Marvel has refrained from killing off redheads recently, leading many to believe that someone had stolen a page out of Marvel's book.
Kirkman has made use of several other Marvel Playbook pages in the recent past, fueling speculation that he might possess multiple pages. He recently employed the "Buy All the Variants!" page to make his The Walking Dead #100 the top-selling comic of the month. He also used the "Minority Deaths are Good for Sales" play in the same comic.
Marvel can't abide by such a crack in the armor, especially with conclusive proof coming out that Kirkman has in fact stolen Marvel's prized possession. We expect Marvel to send trained Disney assasins to the Image fat cat's Walking-Dead-money-funded compound, which comprises most of the state of Kentucky, to get it back.
Now that word has officially leaked about Kirkman's possession of the missing pages, the comic writer announced that how he stole the pages would be revealed in an upcoming arc of Thief of Thieves, which he stated was an autobiographical novel with the names changed to protect the innocent.
