The year 2014 is upon us. The start of the new year is usually a time for resolutions we make to improve our lives, but we here on the Word of the Nerd Comics team have decided to do something a bit different—we want to share our wishes for what we’d like to see in comics this coming year. Check out our very own wish list to see what we hope we’ll be seeing in comics sometime this year.
- Mandy Osipenko. “I wish the new Harley Quinn series didn’t have her being involved in roller derby.”
- Becca Nark. “Another Secret Agent Poyo one-off from CHEW.”
- Kyle Rivest. “I hope Jeff Lemire brings Connor, Mia, and Ollie’s facial hair back to Green Arrow, and Azzarello continues writing Wonder Woman for the foreseeable future.”
- Bryan Keith Brown. “First I would like to see the two IDW Transformers series merge back into one coherent book, and second I would like to see the comeback/resurrection of Peter Parker in Marvel Comics .”
- Ani Gonzalez. “Sandman to stay on a regular schedule.”
- Miguel Rockchester Luévano. “I wish for a major comic character to die and stay dead. Like, just dead for good. Also I wish someone would write a new series where Tony Stark runs for governor of something or some kind of senator. In this series, aptly titled The Electable Iron Man, Tony’s greatest and most secret enemy is the Gerry-Mandarin! (Get it?) Tony must race against time to defeat a shadowy mastermind who is running a massive smear campaign (not that one’s necessary) to crush Tony’s political aspirations while secretly controlling Tony’s political opponent that probably has a better, generically likable face and a very broad but generically appealing campaign platform. This opponent’s also a Skrull or a Doombot or something… Also, I hope Stilt-Man starts a fight with the two Scott Summers’s and knocks out the baby Cyclops’s front teeth, and then Cyclops is retconned into having a missing front tooth because continuity.”
- Hilton Collins. “I hope Azzarello stays on Wonder Woman for the foreseeable future, and I’d like to see the Justice League International characters return once again, either in their own book or in others… and that they STICK AROUND for a while.”
