Kevin Smith Promises Fans Double The Wait Time In New Series

The writer of "Daredevil: The Target" and "Batman: Whatever Comes After Widening Gyre" promises to bring fans the wait they've been, um, waiting for!

Comics and patience fans were thrilled today to hear that Filmmaker and Podcaster Kevin Smith is returning to comics with a digital first Batman/Green Hornet series. 
 
"It's so awesome!" said Russ Garbonsky, in line at the DMV. "I mean, I've been waiting for Daredevil: The Target #2 for over a decade now and loving every minute of it!"
 
In an exclusive USA Today story, Smith said putting these two characters in a story is a dream come true. "It's like getting to be 5 years old again and tell stories that you would have made up while watching the show as a kid," he said. "To be able to do it, man, it really does bring it full circle in a bucket-list kind of fashion." 
 
No stranger to writing either Batman or Green Hornet, Smith promises to make the 12-part series last as long as humanly possible.  "I mean, with The Target, there was only ONE character to not write. Now I'm looking at TWO sets of fans I can leave hanging!"
 
The announcement was met with some pessimism though. The addition of longtime Smith friend and Co-Podcaster Ralph Garman as co-writer of the co-production left some fans wondering if Smith could pull off not finishing the scripts required. 
 
"Hold on, he's got a co-writer? That doesn't sound good... " mused Grant Costello while waiting in line for the iPhone 6. "If someone's there to make sure that he finishes the scripts, then we could be looking at on-time delivery. That's just not going to cut it."
 
Professional awards show seat-filler Carl Wilcox was more positive upon hearing the news. "Wow, 12 parts?!" he exclaimed. "Thats going to be fantastic to wait for. I was getting jittery with Awards season wrapping up, no more waiting for Brad Pitt to get back from the bathroom. I was starting to worry if I was going to have a job! But this could fill that waiting-for-stuff void for months, possible years!"
 
When asked if this forthcoming new work would interfere with Smith's current slate of projects, including his forthcoming movie Tusk, his forthcoming series Hit Somebody, his forthcoming sequel to the comic Batman: The Widening Gyre, his forthcoming musical Clerks III and forthcoming sequel to Jay & Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie, Smith simply rolled another joint, smiled and exclaimed "not even a bit!"

About the Author - Jeff Moss


While most kids spend their days dreaming of being firemen or astronauts, Jeff Moss was firmly holed up in his room with a stack of comic books, shying away from natural light. Jeff co-founded No Reason Comics with Dan Simon in 2006 as a way to get all the comic book groupies. Crushed when he found out they didn’t exist, Jeff turned his attention to his second love, radio. Along with Donnie Coulter, he started The Watchtower Comic Book Show. In 2009, Jeff uprooted his life and made the arduous trek to the mythological land of Montreal, where he became the General Manager of The 4th Wall, a new breed of comic shop. Jeff also works as an editor on Gutters, a twice-weekly comic that parodies the entirety of the comic book world. Jeff lives with his Transformers and girlfriend Amy in a house with an office that can best be described as cave-like, and has aspirations to one day create something as wonderful as stuffed-crust pizza.
