Somehow I missed the news that there was a new Avenger series from Dynamite Entertainment. On the plus side, the new issue is out this week.
If you got a kick out of Mark Waid’s Potter’s Field mini-series, you’ll be happy to know there’s a new Potter’s Field one-shot arriving in March. “I’m excited to return to this character,” said series writer and BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Mark Waid.Â “I’m genuinely fascinated by the concept of a nameless avenger going out of his way to help everyone but himself, embarking on what seems to be a totally impossible mission.Â I created John Doe with a simple idea in mind, but the storytelling potential keeps me up at night.Â POTTER’S FIELD: STONE COLD gives me a chance to
If you haven’t been keeping tabs of Sillof and what he’s doing in the custom action figure arena, you’ve already missed out on his Justice League by Gaslight.Â For a while now, he’s been working on the Avengers, and he’s completed both Thor and Iron Man. This was designed as a companion piece of sorts to my Gaslight Justice League.Â I am actually more of a Marvel fan then a DC fan.Â Â The line is Victorian in nature, with slight industrial elements, and a flair of the American West of the 1800’s.Â It is all designed to be a little
I’m sure it has been on your mind ever since Marvel announced the release date for Captain America, “Who is going to direct this masterpiece?”Â Your question has been answered via the trades, as The Hollywood Reporter has Joe Johnston taking on the First Avenger. Who is Joe Johnston?Â This is the guy who directed The Rocketeer, which has a huge fan following.Â Since First Avenger: Captain America is set during World War II, he should be perfect to guide the production. “Captain America” will be a World War II-set movie, and the character will appear in the modern day-set
That’s the battle cry heard over at Film Roman, the animation house famous for The Simpsons, King of the Hill, Rugrats and others, as Marvel Animation announced it is beginning production of The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. The animated television series is the latest from the House of Ideas, who has previously announced Wolverine and the X-Men, and Iron Man: Armored Adventures.Â The 26 episode Avengers series is expected to debut in 2011, at or around the same time as Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers movies hit theaters. “(This) continues our plan to complement each of our
One of the best things about one-shots is just that; a story done in one that stands up on its own merits.Â If the story is great, then the issue will live on, if it tanks, well, thank goodness it was only one issue. DCâ€™s Jokerâ€™s Asylum mixes the best of the one-shot, with the best of the mini-series to create great Hitchcock-Night-Gallery-esque tales that stand on their own legs, but donâ€™t necessarily need to all be read.Â In the case of Jokerâ€™s Asylum: Scarecrow, it would fall into the category of a good read.
Or – “In Which I Discuss The Changing Role Of The Limited Series…” It’s difficult to remember that, in comics terms, the Limited Series has only been around for a few short years.Â (Well, I should probably amend that statement to say the INTENTIONALLY Limited Series.Â A lot of books ran 4, 5, or 6 issues and got cancelled due to sales, editorial caveat, or general sucktitude.)Â Used to be that the point of the Limited Series was to showcase characters who hadn’t been seen in a while, or to finish off story points that didn’t have another venue.Â These
Marvel has announced two of its titles have sold out and are going back to print. Skaar, Son of Hulk #1 and Captain Britain and The MI: 13 #2 are both going back to press with variant covers. Skaar: Son Of Hulk #1 Second Printing Garney Variant features the acclaimed interior art of Ron Garney on the cover. Skaar: Son of Hulk #1 Second Printing Movie Variant features the Hulk as seen in the new film along with an image of his son, Skaar, as illustrated by Garney. Captain Britain & The MI: 13 #2 Second Printing Variant features the
With Iron Man still riding strong at the box office, the comic titles have seen a rise in interest, and Invincible Iron Man is pretty hot, with the second issue selling out at the distributor level. Issue #2 is going back to press, but in the meantime, Marvel has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of issue #3.
Or, â€œNo, this guy was never an Avenger nor a woman named Ritaâ€¦â€ In some of my previous Hero Histories, I talked a little bit about how Golden Age characters might make an appearance and never be seen again, or they could last through to today. While that was meant to be aimed at actual characters, it holds true for good names a well. You might recognize this weekâ€™s Hero History as a name belonging to one of Hank Pymâ€™s various alter egos. Maybe you know it as a young ex-criminal named Rita DeMara who went to the future and
Following the success of the Iron Man movie over the weekend, Marvel Studios updated its movie schedule as follows: Punisher: War Zone (Lionsgate)- December 5, 2008 X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Fox)- May 1, 2009 Iron Man 2 – April 30, 2010 Thor – June 4, 2010 The First Avenger: Captain America – May 6, 2011 The Avengers – July 2011 Spider-Man 4 – Still in development Ant-Man – Writer/Director engaged It was announced that Iron Man 2 would introduce Thor. While Robert Downey Jr, Gweneth Paltrow, and Terrence Howard are signed for three films, it is uncertain if Jon Favreau will
