As the comics media does its best to survive in a world where, for the foreseeable future at least, there will be no new comics, here at Bleeding Cool we're doing our best to continue to produce the high quantity content our readers have come to expect. Thanks to coronavirus quarantines, superstar writer Rick Remender has been taking a little trip down memory lane, posting old artwork from his comics and sharing rejected story ideas, mostly from his time at Marvel. So far, we've learned about his plans for taking over the X-books that never came to be after he told Marvel to drown in hobo piss in 2014 over the corporately-mandated Inhumans vs. X-Men. We've looked at his rejected pitch for a Spider-Man story bursting with bug-themed baddies and saw a veritable crap ton of artwork from his various creator-owned Image Comics series. We even got to read part of a Namor pitch that was basically Frank Miller's Daredevil: Born Again meets The Little Mermaid, and a wild Hearts of Darkness sequel pitch that would have seen the invention of Cosmic Ghost Rider, Doctor Strange in a polyamorous relationship with Clea and Brother Voodoo, and vampire Wolverine and werewolf Captain America doing their own version of Twilight.
He is a one-man walking stimulus for the beleaguered comics media in these dark times, and we want to say we appreciate him.
In this latest installment of "What's Remender Tweeting?," we've got a veritable crap ton of artwork from his time at Marvel. Enjoy.
It's almost as good as seeing art in new comics printed today, right? Cheers to you, Rick Remender. You're keeping the entire comics media going by yourself.
