Legacy, schmegacy! One of the best new comics in the Marvel Universe isn't even published by Marvel.

Alex De Campi And Dave Acosta Launch HKMC, A Free Webcomic Starring Frank Castle And Bucky

Alex de Campi and Dave Acosta have launched a new webcomic, Hell's Kitchen Movie Club, with a brilliantly simple concept: "Frank Castle and Bucky sit around cleaning weapons & watching/critiquing action films."

The comic is being released for free on Twitter and Tumblr. Of course, it can't go much further than that, since, as the strip's disclaimer notes, "HKMC is a work of satire" and "all characters copyright Marvel Comics." Plus, if Marvel were to publish it, they'd have to replace the f-bombs with G-rated substitutes, and "I didn't cry for seventy blasted years…" doesn't have the same emotional punch.

According to de Campi, she has "a ton" of strips written, and she and Acosta plan to release them on a loose monthly schedule, depending on how busy they are with paying work.

You can read the first strip, Origin Story, here.
