I Am Edward Norton’s Inflamed Sense Of Rejection

Comic-Con 2010

This comic was actually intended to run last Friday (when this story was still fresh) but I had to preempt it to make fun of Apple’s “Antennagate” press conference.

In other news: COMIC-CON! COMIC-CON! COMIC-CON! COMIC-CON! COMIC-CON! COMIC-CON! COMIC-CON!

I will be at the Topatoco booth (#1231) in the Webcomic’s Pavilion (just around the corner from Penny Arcade). I will have a few shirts, my book, various comic prints, a few left over large prints, [maybe a secret special print… more on that later], and a new item:

Sketch Cards! For $5 I will do a quick sketch for you on a nice card that looks like this:

HijiNKS ENSUE Comic Con Sketch Cards

Pretty neat, huh? Sketches in HE books (that you buy) are free, and larger commissioned pieces are priced depending on complexity.

COMIC-CON EXCLUSIVE “Browncoat vs. Red Shirt” SHIRTS!!!

I can now announce that I did a couple of shirt designs for Quantum Mechanix, fine online retailer of various Firefly/Serentiy, Dr. Horrible, Battlestar and Star Trek Merch, that will be exclusively sold at Comic-Con (booth 3251, which is mid-hall, toward the back wall, near the break area) and likely never again. Pick a side and display your colors proudly.

DO YOU WANT A SAN DIEGO FANCY BASTARD MEETUP?

FB’s JustChristine and JonnyAce wants to organize a meetup for sometime during the con. Thursday night I will be at W00tstock. If you are interested make a comment. If enough people are interested we can make an event on the Fancy Bastards Facebook page. Follow me on Twitter for minute to minute updates as to what’s going on while I’m at Comic-Con.

  1. In death, a member of Project Avengers has a name. His name was Eric Bana.

  2. I love the way you drew Hulk! (uh, the green one on the left)
    The attitude, gesturing w/glasses, etc.
    First panel looks great, too!

  3. Ha! Why has no one done this before, It seems so obvious now.

  4. It's too bad Norton is a bit of an asshole, i liked his Banner, and not that Marvel isn't being a bag of dicks, but a bad seed on a team movie would throw it of its rocker, so go away Ed, lets bring on a Brit!

    • A good director can work around a headcase if he's right for the part, a bad director will let the headcase destroy his movie. Like Christopher Nolan handling Christian Bale vs McG handling Christian Bale. Norton made a great Banner, and I think that Joss Weadon could handle him

      • If Joss Whedon can handle all the times people get his name wrong, cantankerous actors should be a piece of cake…

  5. It's a shame. I think I'll put it down to marvel being a huge pile of penises (something they've been famed for lo, these many years) rather than Norton not being a team player. And why the hell is The Human Torch now suddenly Captain America?

  6. Since all great puns about Ed Norton’s movies of dudes with anger management problems have been said, I’d like to praise the cutest ever browncoat/redshirt design, as well as the “Joel Watson ruined this very nice piece of paper…” fine print in the sketch card-thingies. They look very nice indeed!

  8. Glad you kept Brad's choice of furry collared coat on the Hulk.

    Why do his pants always stay intact?

    Reply
    • you wouldn't like him when his pants aren't intact.

  9. I would just like to state my dislike of things that can only be bought in places I cannot be.
    That is all.

    Reply
    • I too am upset about things I would like to buy being available only in places I will not be. I clicked through to purchase some Firefly/Star Trek shirts before discovering it wasn't a store link, returning here and tasting bitter disappointment…

      Reply
  10. Perhaps your bitter disappointment is like a cookie to Joel.

    Disappointment cookies.

  11. You're making me DECIDE between being a Browncoat and a Redshirt? Noooooooooooooooo!

    Reply
    • I agree that this is impossible.

      Reply
  12. All browncoats are red shirts, but only some red shirts are browncoats. :)

  13. Realy funny Fight Club bit, is the comic based on all Fight Club or bits of other Ed Norton movies?
    Also, I'm unclear as to who, ultimately, is at fault, Marvel or Norton?

  14. Rule 1 of Hulk Club: Do not talk about Hulk Club.
    Rule 2 of Hulk Club: DO NOT TALK ABOUT HULK CLUB!!!
    I just had to say that before someone else did.

    Reply
  15. Rule # 1. You no talk about Hulk Club.
    #2 You no talk Hulk Club.
    Hulk forget 3….RAAAAH Hulk smash!

  16. I think Meatloaf should play the role of The Hulk in the next movie.

    Reply
  17. Hulk is a CGI construct anyways. Who -really- cares about the role of Banner?

    I mean, honestly?
