Dear IDW, NOW Comics is calling from 1990; they want their Fly comic back.
The Fly: Outbreak is a quizzical sequel absolutely no one was asking for, but apparently there are some long-term likeness contracts in place through 20th Century Fox (so the comic “stars” Eric Stoltz and Daphne Zuniga in their parts) so it feels like a desperate cash grab from when someone thought The Fly II might warrant a comic book license.
Of course, it didn’t in 1989 (or 1990). Does it in 2015? Is Outbreak the sequel people have been waiting twenty-six years for? Did we really need to see Zuniga’s character as an S&M goddess, tying up Stoltz’s half-man-fly 50 Shades of Grey-style?
No, we did not. No one did. Well, unless someone gets Stoltz and Zuniga to read this thing for a YouTube video.
It’s heinous, licensed crap.
