I can honestly say that so far this year there have been some pretty impressive PSA (public service announcements). They usually include something along the lines of “New York – New York – 3/19/2012; Today So and So had a meeting”, and then discuss what happened and where it will take place if anything takes place. I really like the comic book press releases because they are always great. They generally include some sort of cover shot as well as a bunch of other details. Unfortunately for you guys. all that came in this PSA was this:
And Now, A Public Service Announcement From The Stars of TAKIO!
TAKIO #1 (MAR120632)
Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS
Art & Cover by MICHAEL AVON OEMING
FOC – 4/16/12, ON SALE – 5/9/12
I would have expected a lot more from Bendis, now I understand that this might have been someone else writing, but that’s fine. I will fill in the blanks for you who do NOT know what this is.
TAKIO, an all-ages creator-owned original graphic novel by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Michael Avon Oeming, the creators of Powers the original TAKIO graphic novel, was an origin story that set the characters up for more adventures. Bendis wasn’t exactly sure he’d get a chance to revisit the characters of Taki and Olivia. When it became clear the book was resonating with readers, the writer put his plans for a sequel in motion.
Bendis is a man who has worked on many other projects. He is a well know writer who has worked on things such as the different Spider Man series, Halo :Uprising, Spider Woman, The New Avengers and many more within that area. He even has a pretty in-depth website that we are all able to go view and see.
