B&N Week 196: What Are You Doing To Bring Fun & Games To Comics?

We’ve got another Tuesday upon us! The sun is shining once again in Tucson, and the heat won’t hit in the triple digits anymore. [You’re all going to be envious of me in a couple of months, when I’m still talking about 80 degree weather…]

We’ve got a short discussion this week. This week’s question: are you bringing fun and games to comics?

There’s one thing that I know: it’s difficult to be amusing, if not downright funny, on paper. I don’t know how some writers do it, and I’m trying to learn.

But just because you aren’t “funny” doesn’t mean that you can’t be fun, right? A lot of today’s comics are very serious. No, not grim and gritty, but serious. Look at the state of both Marvel and DC, and the stories being told there. Marvel is going from one event to another, and the stakes keep growing. DC rebooted their entire universe a couple of years ago, and they’re still trying to establish a feel for it. But it’s very serious stuff.

There’s only one character that instills a sense of fun in his adventures, and that’s Wade Wilson, the merc with a mouth: Deadpool.
