Bazooka Joe Gets Gritty Reboot

If you’re anything like us, you ate gum. Yum yum, gum in my tum-tum. The star of the dime-store candy show was always Bazooka Joe, a character quick with a totally satisfying pun. In November 2012, the corporate OVERLORDS at Bazooka Candy decided to discontinue his comic strip. Now, Joss Whedon’s bringing him back.

Whedon, as you might know from Firefly and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is a dreamy loveboat. He’s the hottest man whose name ends in ‘-oss’ that I can think of, he’ll be perfect to write the announced Netflix series, due to drop in 178 eight-second shorts this October.

I’m going to spend the next two months wildly postulating over who’s going to play the immortal Joe, and if he’s gonna have a sick costume redesign. But enough about me, how’s your day going?
