    Just scored 2 preview tickets for Wednesday!

    Super pumped and nervous.

    Love the team and cast. Love the books/magazines. Did not like the first Dune movie but enjoyed most of the Sci-Fi channel's mini series.

    I hope this does well and is good.

    Well, depends on what we mean by "street-level." If we're taking something darker and dramatic, like the classic Batman cartoon, or edgelord-style material, like the Snyderverse DC movies, probably not. On the other hand, if we're talking something where it's about threats that aren't about saving the world and more mundane schemes (e.g. classic Spider-Man, Daredevil, etc.), the new show looks like it'll fit in just right. Heck, the Fraction comics that the show is basing itself on is one of the quintessential street-level comic book series out there.

    In any event, the trailer sure looks like its capturing the spirit of Fraction comics. I will grant that we're seeing more of the absurd side than the dramatic stuff, but it is just a trailer, and, in any event, the comics's depth was always in the character writing more so than in grimdark plot points (case in point, the complexities of the surrogate sibling and/or father/daughter figure relationship between Clint and Kate).

    Yeah, you'd almost think that it was trying to capture the look of its source material. Weird, isn't it?
