Marvel Comics has released the cover images to Thunderbolts #113. The variant cover is by Young Guns Reloaded Billy Tan, while the standard cover gets the Marko Djurdjevic treatment. As we have previously reported, each cover of the first arc will interlock to build a much larger image based on Mike Deodato’s design.
Ultimate Avengers and Iron Man composer spills the beans on creating Marvel soundtracks Marvel.com spoke with composer Guy Michelmore about his work on Marvel’s animated features. A portion of the interview is here, and the link at the end will take you to a page where you can download four mp3s from the soundtrack. Marvel.com: Who are your film composer inspirations? Guy Michelmore: I think every composer working in commercial films draws on landmark composers like Bernard Herrmann, John Williams, Danny Elfman and Hans Zimmer, all of whom have taken the genre forward in their own way. I’m a big
Not everyone in the Marvel Universe is aware the Hulk has been shot into space, but they are beginning to notice as his rogues begin to cause trouble. In She-Hulk #15, the green bombshell has decided to join S.H.I.E.L.D. as part of Civil War! Her first mission is t track down the Hulk and find out what has happened to him. This story arc will be a big one for the Illuminati and all of Marvel as it builds toward the World War Hulk storyline. Here is your sneak peek of the issue.
Or – “This Is The Story Of Doctor Jekyll & Mister Pym…” What’s that, you say? TWO issues? Can we BE so lucky? Is it a Christmas miracle? Well, yeah, for some values of miracle, anyway. Specifically, the miracle that is Marvel’s bi-weekly schedule, combined with my own foolishness in not checking said schedule, combined with the natural delays of the holiday season, all conspiring to give us a hearty double dose of classic Avengers in a white wine sauce with a fried egg on top and spam. Never let it be said that the Major Spoilers reviewing staff don’t
I have seen the trailer for the next Fantastic Four movie, and while it can’t be any worse than the first movie, I like what I see with the Silver Surfer.

Clone Saga: Part 7 Talk about a wild ride. For seven issues, we’ve been treated to the Ultimate rendition of the Clone Saga served up by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley. We’ve found out nearly everyone appearing in recent issues is a clone of Peter Parker, including Spider-Woman, and the person behind the cloning is none other than Doctor Octavius.
USAToday has some exclusive agreement with 20th Century Fox on dishing out the tid-bits of information on the Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer flick. Today, the “news”paper gave us a look at the Silver Surfer. Looks more like an artist rendering than something we’ll see in the movie. Looks rather plain to me, nothing we haven’t already seen in the Terminator movies. Guess I’ll wait until I see some actual moving shots before I give it a thumbs up or thumbs down. via USAToday (link)
Or – “It’s Ron Mysterio All Over Again…” Ahh, the annual! Used to be, every summer, we’d be inundated with these things, most of which were either out of continuity or written by people so divorced from the core book that they might as well have been writing different characters. Why, back in the day, you could count on a big issue, with one story that kinda mattered but wasn’t very good, filled out with reprints you neither wanted nor cared about, as well as pinups probably drawn in half an hour to fill the page count. Meeeeemorieeeeees… Then came
Or – “What Exactly IS A Human Robot, Anyway?” It’s a fine time to be a comics fan. Characters as wildly diverse as Detective Chimp, Spider-Woman, Machine Man, Nightmaster, and Animal Man are all back in the spotlight, and it seems like nobody’s favorite obscure character is going to stay obscure for long. Marvel and DC alike are delighting in revamping, reviving, and revitalizing guys that most people figured were long gone. Most impressively, they’re doing it in a way that manages to breathe new life without negating that which has gone before. Most of the cast of this comic
Marvel Comics has sent us a whole lotta previews for titles arriving in stores January 10, 2007. The year is starting to look good with Blade #5, Mythos: Ghost Rider, and Squadron Supreme. All the details, and five page previews for each title, after the jump.
Or – “You’ll Never Have This Much Fun With A Liefeld Character Again…” One of the great things about the Marvel Universe is that everybody has a story. Even someone who’s appeared as seldom as the Texas Twister or Stingray has backstory, family, friends and continuity. The cast of this book, f’rinstance, has ties to The X-Men, X-Force, The Avengers, The Defenders, Spider-Man, the awesome but completely forgotten “Lost Generation” miniseries, and, if this issue is to be taken literally, The frickin’ Micronauts. Last issue, the nextwave five were faced with no fewer than three different evil superteams bent on
