It had originally been our intention to deliver - in a wholly ironic context, of course - the kind of rich, braised meats that the faithful crave when considering the marriage of companies with holdings as vast as Disney and Marvel. As we were writing it, we felt that we were doing so with an uncharacteristic desire to please, coupled with the knowledge that Gabriel would execute such fantasies with a high degree of mechanical skill.
When we came in today, though, and saw the Internet set ablaze with such content, we decided that an ironic veneer was not sufficient to elevate such a rough-ridden concept. So, we ended up making an entirely new comic, which concerns the obligatory HR turbulence such maneuvers invariably generate. Even so, I thought Gabe’s sketches for the original product were still very cool, and worthy of examination:
Mortals have - in droves - begged us for information about the next Dungeons & Dragons podcast. They are hungry for tales of Binwin Bronzebottom, Jim Darkmagic, Mr. Elf, and the other person. Well, you needn’t wait very long - indeed, you needn’t wait at all. In this episode, Acquisitions Incorporated is basically evicted. Things get worse from there, but if I said how much worse, we’d be swerving into spoiler territory.
Also, PAX! (aaah, aah.)
