Michael Davis: The Lazy-Man
Today I’ve come up with a brand new superhero and I’m proudly unveiling him right here. ComicMix – meet The Lazy-Man™*
The date of this writing is April 29th, 2012 and it just so happens to be my birthday. Somehow after working all month on two other book projects a TV project and various other stuff like Comic Con and staying up drinking tequila most of last night, somehow Lazy-Man just came to me!
Wow. What an unexpected yet not unwelcome birthday gift!
I work really hard but last week was such a bitch on my time and gray matter that towards the end of the week I felt overwhelmed and a bit depressed. But somehow at the very depths of those emotions came Lazy-Man!
Who is Lazy-Man?
Why, Lazy-Man is all of us when we have reached a point where we just need to be lazy. I say Lazy-Man is all of us, but on the one in a billion chance that this bullshit idea I made up just because I’m too exhausted to think of something to write about catches on, let me be clear-Lazy Man is me and me alone.
Yes, Lazy-Man is me (if it hits big) you (if it goes nowhere) all of us (me, hits big; us, goes nowhere) and sometime we must embrace our inner Lazy-Man and recharge.
I see Lazy-Man as a six-issue mini-series, which coincidently fits my “must write about comics” criteria for ComicMix.
Lazy-Man’s story is told via his journal entries. The first of such are here as a ComicMix exclusive:

April 29, 2012
Yesterday morning I did not exist. Yesterday afternoon I was not alive. Last night at around 11pm I was born fully formed.
My mother was called Tequila my father’s name was Fatigue. Together they made me. I am Lazy-Man! Beware me! Beware my wrath! Now go! Go before you fall victim of Lazy-Man!!
But-before you go, can you hand me the remote?

TUESDAY AFTERNOON: The Debut of Emily S. Whitten
Well, happy belated birthday to you, good sir.
Sending you a “Lazy Man” style birthday wish (since it is arriving a day late)!
Would not have it any other way Mark! Thanks!
Happy Birthday to you, sir. By the way, are you bringing Paige to Comic Con? I would love the meet this extraordinary young lady you talked so much about. Another creative young person for the world to appreciate
Montel-thanks for the birthday wishes. I’ve invited Paige but it’s up to her mom rather or not she makes the trip. I hope they get a chance to go I think Paige would have a blast!
Given his origin, and in keeping with the basic concept of Lazy-Man, is his costume his birthday suit?
Birthday suit and remote. Yep-that’s it.
I was too lazy to wish you a happy birthday.
And I’m to lazy to say thanks.
