Welcome to fall. Aside from football and cooler weather, the onset of the autumn season means the five broadcast networks are preparing to shower us with their latest comedic and dramatic offerings. Rather than go over every single show that’s coming back this season, I’ve focused on the heaping deli platter of new series making their debut either this fall or midseason after the first of the year. There’re definitely a lot to choose from and many won’t be coming back for another round, so kick back, read some summaries and let me tell you what I think will and won’t make the cut for a second season.
Yup, more Marvel promos for the Siege series.Â This one from Siege: The Cabal, which arrives December 2, 2009.
The latest teaser from Marvel to tease the upcoming Siege story arc.Â Siege: The Cabal arrives December 2, 2009, while Siege #1 arrives a month later on January 6, 2010.
Marvel has announced that the intergalactic S.W.O.R.D. organization is getting its own series written by Kieron Gillen, with art by Steven Sanders and Jamie McKelvie.
Former Avengers-liason Henry Gyrich joins the enigmatic Agent Brand as top dog in spaceâ€”but why does he think that ridding Earth of all aliens will save it? What will his plan do to the very fabric of the Marvel Universe? And just what does the arrival of Beast mean for S.W.O.R.D.?
The first issue to this new series will be $3.99, when it hits store shelves on November 18, 2009.
We have a huge number of fans that like reading more than titles from the big two.Â Some actually dive deep into the indie publishers like Blacklist Studios and their Robot 13 series.Â Major Spoilers fan, Michele slipped us word that the cover to Robot 13 #2 has appeared, even though the issue isn’t scheduled for a few more weeks.
Marvel sent over the new logo that will be adorning the cover of the Fantastic Four covers beginning with #570.Â In the words of Rodrigo, “I like it”.Â It works for a four member team, but let’s hope they don’t try to do the same thing with The Avengers.
The moment you’ve been waiting for – THE FINAL BATTLE BETWEEN THE PET AVENGERS AND THANOS – is finally here.Â Plus it features Bo Obama.Â Marvel sent out a sneak peek of the issue that arrive August 12, 2009.
Boom! has been on a roll lately with some really great titles, so when I saw that company founder Andrew Cosby and Hexed writer Michael Alan Nelson are teaming for a Samurai revenge tale, color me excited.
DC Comics has guaranteed that Final Crisis: Aftermath will feature one shocking moment in every issues.
Here’s the image that the company released on The Source website.
- Fat guy in spandex
- Fat hairy naked ass
- Plastic woman
Nothing too shocking there, sounds like the stuff you see at a comic book convention.Â Let’s hope the rest of the issue has something truly shocking – like a cover price lower than $4.99.
The twenty-five cent Buck Rogers #0 edition arrives in stores on May 2, 2009, prompting the company to start the publicity early by sending us the cover to the issue.
In addition, take the jump to see the covers to the first issue by Alex Ross and John Cassaday.
Seeing as how I’m just a few days behind on this post, I’m sure most of the blogosphere and the Intar-webs are already lit up talking about the cover to Dynamite Entertainment’s Herogasm mini-series.Â The series spins out of Garth Ennis’ The Boys series, that takes a rather in your face approach to the superhero genre.Â Fans of The Boys will be happy to note that Garth is writing this mini, with John McCrea providing the art.
“Garth has a few special surprises for The Boys planned for the back-half of his story and this mini is the first,” explained Dynamite Associate Editor Joe Rybandt. “While Darick works on the main series, we’re especially pleased that we were able to reunite Garth and John McCrea for this mini which will shock even the most hardcore Boys fan. Guaranteed.”
