I Fully Support Soft Serve, the Mutant Who Poops Ice Cream
The secret revelation of Soft Serve was something I stumbled upon this past weekend and I am 1 million % on board. Soft Serve is apparently a mutant who can poop ice cream, created by artist Bob Quinn in his free time. And Quinn just so happens to be the artist on the brand new Way of X comic, which I am loving.
When you’re an artist on an X-Men comic full of crowded group scenes, you get to have a little fun!
Quinn introduced Soft Serve to the world on Twitter back on Feb. 8.
One assumes he was already hard at work on the first couple of issues of Way of X at that point. And sure enough, Soft Serve made her “official” debut on the final page of Way of X #2 last week.
Don’t see her? Take a closer look. She’s the one trying to offer ice cream to a fellow Krakoan.
Bob Quinn confirmed the arrival of Soft Serve on Twitter once the issue was out last Wednesday. According to him, it’s better to ask forgiveness than permission when it comes to sneaking his own, original mutants into the official pages of an X-Men comic.
Suffice to say, I love this. An artist and longtime X-Men fan having some silly fun with the big background shots of Krakoa? Wonderful! There have been so many of those big background shots, and filling them with unique and original mutants sounds hilarious and wonderful.
Soft Serve even has her own page on the Marvel Wiki. Who knows what that means.
I will be watching her career with much interest!
