Another PLANETARY #27 Update

While I was in London getting bladdered being a responsible writer yesterday, I got an email from DC Wildstorm to tell me that John Cassaday was, apparently without warning, uploading the complete art for #27 into their FTP space.

I now have those pages on my computer. #27 is all done sans the cover.

I’m a bit hungover still pissed tired right now, and haven’t looked at them all, but maybe I’ll leak a panel or two tomorrow.

EDITED TO ADD: Christ, I’m sorry. I just realised it’s April 1. Therefore this looks like a colossal wind-up. So here’s a tiny bit of proof:

  1. yes.

    (there’d be an exclamation mark after that yes if it weren’t for the fact that i’ve been reading planetary in trade…)

  2. Yes this does seem like a colossal wind-up. Although that’s nothing compared to how it will appear once other sites begin spreading the news. :)

    Assuming this is true, though, how splendid! Time for Laura to get out her markers (or, drawing tablet, probably)?

  3. I like that Cassaday has given them all a “why do you hate us with this ridiculous joke?” expressions.
    As my granny used to say; what was wrong with pictures of distended anuses and artificially enlarged foreskins?

  4. The news reports said the Conficker computer worm was very sophisticated, but I didn’t realize how much so until now.

    Seriously, though, if this is “Not A Hoax! Not An Imaginary Story!” then I can stop feeling like the comics fanboy version of a Cargo Cult follower.

  5. Oh, the art’s done, but the April Fool’s stinger is that the beam of light approaching the team turns out to be Philip Jose Farmer, revealing that Wold Newton is alive and real, and our world is the rigid fiction.

  6. Good Lord. Now we have to wait for tomorrow, when the joke is revealed, and thousands of people either bring out the pitchforks and torches, or jump from tall buildings.

    Thanks, Warren. Some of us have to clean that shit up.

  7. ah… i can die fulfilled now… kudos mr cassiday, and to you mr ellis…

    [and had this not been true… this, quite possible could have been the cruelest april fool’s thingy EVER!!!]

  8. This is good news indeed. Now we have something to keep the aliens at bay with-we have interdimentional proof that we are cool and do not deserved to be obliterated. Yet. Thanks Ellis, Cassaday, Laura-any updates on expected release date yet?-Ben Gray, 4/23/’09

  9. Hey, did any kind of closure happen with the person brought back from the fictional universe in issue 9? I hope some kind of reference to that is made in this final issue, I’m assuming Chase will be mentioned at the very least.
