David Bowie Approves of New Guardians of the Galaxy Ship Name From Beyond Grave

Legendary rocker David Bowie gave a posthumous thumbs up to global entertainment superstar Donny Cates, sometimes known as "The David Bowie of Comics," for Cates' decision to name the new ship belonging to the Guardians of the Galaxy after Bowie, who has himself sometimes known as "The Donny Cates of Music." Even more impressively, Bowie approved of the decision on Twitter despite being deceased since 2016.

The late rock star noticed Cates' tribute after Cates tweeted about it in response to an article about the anniversary of Bowie's Space Oddity.

This prompted Bowie to take to Twitter from beyond the veil to post:

And despite his international renown as a superstar comic book writer, Cates was humble enough to recognize that one of the greatest musicians of all time communicating with him from beyond the grave is truly an unusual honor.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.

About News with Benefits

Why let facts get in the way of a good story? News with Benefits is just like the actual news, but more interesting because it's embellished. Yes, it may feature made-up quotes, wrong assertions, and completely baseless speculation, but in a way, isn't that more honest than the shameless buttkissing and corporate shillery you often find in the "real" news? Don't answer that.

News with Benefits was pioneered at toilet-themed comic book news and opinion website TheOuthousers.com, which is sadly now defunct, but its stench lives on thanks to the support of your clicks and outraged comments.
