This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast, the Major Spoilers Crew is taking a peek at the first arc of Ed Brubaker’s Immortal Iron Fist from Marvel Comics.
Many years ago, in the mystical city of Kun’ Lun, young Danny Rand stared at a suit behind glass – the garb of the “Immortal Iron Fist” – and knew that he was destined to wear it. But where did this costume come from? Why did it wait for Danny all those years like a shadow of his future? The answer to those questions will stun both him and his readers, as Danny Rand leaps from the pages of his breakout hit in Daredevil to his own history-spanning kung-fu epic that will shatter every perception of what it means to be the Immortal Iron Fist! Brought to you by top-ten writer Ed Brubaker and breakout talent Matt Fraction (Punisher War Journal), with action-packed art by David Aja (Daredevil, Giant-Size Wolverine). Collects Immortal Iron Fist #1-6.

My joy over the arrival of the latest issue of IDW Publishingâ€™s Locke & Key had me giddy all weekend.Â And the holiday activities only heightened my desire to crack the cover and take a peek at what lies within.Â Thatâ€™s quite an appropriate thought, as this issue featured a lot of cracked heads.

Nick Spencer set me an email about his upcoming title from Image Comics, called Existence 2.0.Â Instead of just talking about it, Nick suggested we run an 11 page preview of the issue just for you!Â And, as anyone who’s read this site for any length of time knows, I loves me some sneak peeks.
IDW Publishing had a great hook with the Transformers movie adaptation, and it’s going to repeat the formula with a four-issue adaptation of the upcoming G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra.Â The series claims to give readers an exclusive peek at what to expect in costume design and plot twists.
â€œG.I. JOE was an essential part of my childhood. I saw COBRA agents around every schoolyard corner,â€ said Andy Schmidt in a prepared statement, IDWâ€™s G.I. JOE editor. â€œIt is an honor to be part of an intensely fun and uniquely relevant group of characters. As a lifelong G.I. JOE fan, to be associated with the wide release of the new G.I. JOE film in particular is a once in a lifetime opportunity.â€
The weekly series is written by Denton Tipton and goes on sale the first week of July, 2009.
The movie is just around the corner, and those that don’t want some early spoiler action, should probably avoid taking the jump that features IDW Publishing’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Movie Adaptation #2. The issue arrives next week (May 27, 2009).
Check out these elements from the upcoming Spawn Origins, Volume 1 collection arriving next week.Â There is a new trade dress, that gives some indication as to the direction all of Image Comics trades will take.
