John Lewis: S
S for late fuckers!!!Â In this issue, crazy Chinese dude beats the crap out of the British, Chinese/ Hydra guys do bad little boy things, and Danny Rand tries to hunt down Orson Rand but gets hunted instead. By hooker-bots. Okay, that last piece was false (wicked awesome dream). I thought this issue was really good. I think the Chinese Hydra dude, Davos, is pretty evil yet dead sexy (like Marie Antonetteâ€™s corpse) and Orson seems to be a pretty interesting chap too.
Tony Mourlot: Hooker-bots would be cool. Iâ€™m really liking the series and this issue was great. Davos is a good villain who is ruthless. I really like that about him. Orson is a good character and Iâ€™m anxious to see how heâ€™s using the power of the Iron Fist at the same time Danny is. I really like the flashback scenes. Learning the back story of the previous Iron Fists has been a good edition to the mythos. The book has a good mix of characterization and action. Another great effort from Fraction and Brubaker.
John the Underwear Model: Anyways, what do you think of the art?
Tony “Stacks High School Girls for a Living” Mourlet: SWEET CHRISTMAS!!! The art is great. Ajaâ€™s style fits the book well. I like the grittiness for a book like this. How do you feel about the art?
John “I Peed in My Pants Once and Put Them Back on the Sales Rack” Lewis: I think itâ€™s great. I think my only problem is that I wished it was Aja doing all the work as itâ€™s pretty diverse.
Ony-Tay Ourlot- May: Yeah, the flashbacks being done by a different artist is a bit of a distraction. Iâ€™d rather see Aja do all of it like you said.
John Lewis a.k.a. Sex-Bot K9: One thing I also really like about this book is Fraction and Brubaker together. I think Bruâ€™s a bit too safe and not weird while sometimes Fraction goes into the territory of being weird with no point but Iron Fist is a perfect mixture.
Tony “Officer, Do These Diapers Make My Ass Look Huge?” Mourlot: I think you can feel both writerâ€™s influence on the book. I think they work well together. Fractionâ€™s off beat writing goes good with Bruâ€™s gritty style. I agree with you that itâ€™s a perfect mixture. Iâ€™d like to see them work together on another title.
John “Blewed Himself Too” Lewis: Me too. Howabout Howard the Duck? I think they would be perfect (maybe throw in Ellis for kicks too).
Tony Mourlot a.k.a. John Lewis’ stunt man: That would work. I think theyâ€™d be great on Deadpool as well. Iâ€™m always up for Ellis. The three of them could write some great stuff.
John “Lea Thompson in Drag” Lewis: And me as a writer tooIâ€™ll dress up for them as Howard.
Tony “I Wish I Pull off Looking Like Howard the Duck” Mourlot: I want pictures of that to post on the site. That way we can all point and laugh at you.
John “Owner of www.mourlettingtony.com” Lewis: At least I get to write Deadpool, motherfucker!!! You fuckers can laugh all you wantâ€¦
Tony “Bats for PETA” Mourlot: DAMMIT!!! I didnâ€™t think of it that way.
John “Pees into Tablets of Prozac” Lewis: No one ever does.
*Johnny Quest theme song starts playing*
John Lewis a.k.a. What? This guy again? Fuck this loser!: Actually, screw that. Quest is stupid.
*Get Smart theme song starts playing*
Tony “Orestolo il Papero” Mourlot: Yeahâ€¦I didnâ€™t like Quest. Get Smart is better.
John Lewis a.k.a. Does Anything for Free: Damn right. Maybe Marvel could do a Get Smart series. Iâ€™ll write it for free, Marvel.
Tony “Brazilian Wax On, Brazilian Wax Off” Mourlot: Fraction and Bru on Get Smart would be kick ass
John “Humps Flu Particles” Lewis: They would kick your ass too.
Tony “Sniffs Keb’s Panties” Mourlot: Probably. But to see that series it would be worth it.
John “Can Count to Indigo” Lewis: We should start a fundraiser or soemthing for it to happen.
Tony “Boom! Blowjob!” Mourlot: I can put in $.63 right now. We should pitch it to Marvel.
John “Yells Too Much” Lewis: LETâ€™S DO IT!!! YOU HEARING ME, JOEY QUESDILLA, WE WANTS BRU AND FRACTION ON GET SMART!!!
Go here to discuss.
