I had an idea the other day for a comic book while watching “The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.” You never get any kind of backstory for the victims in any of these stories, whether it’s sombrero-wearing banditos in spaghetti Westerns or red-shirted security guys in Star Trek. They’re just cannon fodder. But they’ve got friends, loved ones, and stories of their own. Someone somewhere is probably going to cry just as hard for them as we will when our hero gets it.
So I thought it might be interesting to have a comics series where every issue features a different story of someone who gets killed on the last page. Sometimes it may be a gladiator losing in the pits of Rome, sometimes it might be a Hydra henchman getting blasted by Iron Fist, sometimes it might be one of Brainiac’s cyborg assistants getting evacuated into space by Superman because hey, it’s just robots.
Clearly the meds are working today, because the ideas just keep flying!
