Leah Williams Might Be Writing the Blob Comic I Didn’t Know I Wanted

I’m not super familiar with the work of comic writer Leah Williams. But it looks like she might be writing the Blob comic I didn’t know I wanted. The Blob is one of my all-time favorite comic book villains, and definitely my favorite out of all of the X-villains. Heck, I even cosplayed as the Blob to a comic book convention. So you know I’m a fan.

No, pictures aren’t available.

Williams is writing the Age of X-Man comic The X-Tremists, about a paramilitary crew running black ops in the Age of X-Man. Blob is on the team.

That mustache though…

That alone makes The X-Tremists the one Age of X-Man comic I’m really looking forward to. Most of my favorite comic book characters are either dead or not involved in the event, so Blob (and Iceman) make X-Tremists the one for me.

Then we saw the cover of the second issue, revealing a secret relationship between Blob and Psylocke.

The Blob in the age of anti-fat-shaming.

Williams, being apparently an extremely fun person, started up a poll on Twitter to come up with a relationship name for Blob and Psylocke, indicating that she’s got fun plans for the Blob.

Now, my only real experience with a Leah Williams comic was a short bit she did for the Domino Annual in which a bunch of weird-looking mutants held a support group — which I loved. And now she’s apparently got adorable, romantic plans for the Blob.

So be prepared for me to cover the Age of X-Man entirely through the lens of Leah Williams’ writing the Blob.
