Here I am, innocently trying to make headway with the WIP list from hell, and what happens? The Wolverine
movie throws me headfirst into my annual Marvel-binge, and a week or two of inhaling comics at a dangerous rate later, I'm posting Cable/Deadpool fic
Actually, considering how many times this year I've been derailed by stuff a whole lot less enjoyable, I'm not really complaining. The whole Cable&Deadpool
series was awesome fun, after all. =3 And I'm, like, this close to being able to whittle a couple of things of that WIP list now, honest!
Just don't ask about the Life on Mars/Dr Who crossover taking up twenty pages of my notebook.
The Marvel-binge thing actually does look like it's becoming a bit of an annual tradition, which is to say the same thing happened to me last year after Iron Man
came out (only focused around the Iron Man/Avengers/Captain America titles that time, rather than 'anything with Deadpool'. And just as much velithya
's fault, if not more so). Not much precedent from before that, unless you count my DC fling from back in '04 (Young Justice!
<3), but given the number of movies Marvel's supposed to have in the works right now... yeah, if the standard keeps up, plenty of time for this to make tradition-status yet.
They're a funny old medium, Western Comics - as good a practical example of Sturgeon's Law
as you could ask for, but the 10% (or 5%, or however you cast it) out there that is
worth reading can be a damn good way to waste a few afternoons.
