Believe it or not, somewhere one Earth Marvel’s Ant man is somebody’s favorite Avenger. With Avenger mania sweeping the planet (and draining wallets everywhere) Marvel Studios is fully aware that Ant Man has the potential to be HUGE (see what I did there). Scott Pilgrim director Edgar Wright will soon be bringing us the misadventures of Hank Pym, also known as the Ant Man. Considering Mr. Wright has consitantly given us cinematic gold, we have high hopes for the Ant Man franchise. Now, last we heard there is no solid plan to bring Edgar Wright’s Ant Man into the current Avengers film universe, but if we whine enough we may get our way. More importantly however are the following questions. Who exactly is the Ant Man? And, who is the perfect actor to portray the super genius Hank Pym?
Scott Kurtz, Mike Krahulik, and Jerry Holkins all started web comics in the 90s. PvP and Penny Arcade have gone on to be MASSIVE online hits and have even branched out into conventions (PAX), books, and an animated series. The success is easily measured. Well the three of them apparently bored out of their skulls with running their current empires decided to branch out with a new comic called The Trenches. Only been one strip so far, just came out yesterday. The new series is titled The Trenches.
I could tell you what it’s about, but to be honest with only one strip out, they can probably do it better.
The Trenches documents the tribulations of software testing with the precision tools of “the office comedy.” It has lots of characters and lots of things happen. We’re getting to all of that. For now, here are some mysterious silhouettes.
So there you have it, this has already been added to my weekly reader list.
