Over at BleedingCool, cross dressing cosplay comic black ops leader, Rich Johnston revealed that not only was he right about a new series called Forever Evil beginning this September but also the name of Forever Evil’s artist: David Finch.
After running yesterday’s rumour about DC’s Villain Month potentially being called Forever Evil, I’m told that yes, there will be a new series with that title from September. It may be weekly for September, which may explain the expected 56 title number count as opposed to 52 for that month.
“Weekly?” Really? C’mon DC, we’re not even making fun of you right now, but you really want people to believe that David Finch can maintain a weekly schedule, even for one month? Johnston wonders if Finch, who recently needed an unsolicited fill-in artist on JLA, has been working on Forever Evil on the down low in order to stay on some sort of schedule, ala Bryan Hitch’s two year quest to quickly knock out four issues of Age Of Ultron (maybe given two more years they would have been good.)
The Outhouse sent ace reporter, FRANK, to the DC offices in New York to talk to David Finch about the BleedingCool article:
Frank: Frank no want be here, Darth Didio and whole office always bad!
Finch: Perhaps you mean “Forever Evil?”
Frank: Frank in no mood for puns from one such as you, David!
Finch: Why so bitter?
Frank: Frank no know anymore. Frank tired and angry and bitter all the time now.
Finch: Frank, do what I do, relax. Nothing is so important that you need to stress yourself out about it.
Finch: Nothing. Look at me; no one can remember the last time I was able to maintain the traditional comic book schedule for more than six issues and yet I am a highly paid comic book artist whose name attached to a book is actual news.
Frank: AND THEY FIRE FRANK!
Finch: Fire bad!
Frank: Hey! that Frank's line! FRANK SMASH!
The Outhouse is sorry to report that after this interview, Frank was escorted out of the building before he could do anymore property damage. The Outhouse disavows any knowledge of Frank’s actions.
No matter, the over/under on Finch’s first fill in artist is 2 months.
