Keith Giffen Returns to Ambush Bug
Ambush Bug is back… and there was much rejoicing.
According to a recent announcement on Newsarama, Keith Giffen will be returning to Ambush Bug, the character he created in 1980s to point a finger at some the silliness of some of the goings-on in the DC Universe at the time. The six-issue Ambush Bug miniseries will hit shelves in July and feature Giffen as both writer and penciller – a dual role he hasn’t filled in quite some time.
Giffen said he plans to focus Ambush Bug’s snarky sensibilities on both the abundance of "world-shattering events" happening all-too often in the DCU, as well as some of the long-lost characters that the company might rather remain forgotten.
NRAMA: Can you give any examples of something you’re trotting out again?
KG: Oh, well two come to mind right away. Whatever happened to the Green Team? And whatever happened to the Glop from Outer Space?
NRAMA: Oh, it almost seems cruel to bring back a character called the Glop. [laughs]
KG: The Glop from Outer Space was a Wonder Girl villain. He was this big blob from outer space that ate rock ‘n’ roll records. And I thought, well, there’s got to be a follow-up story, because they don’t make rock ‘n’ roll records anymore.
