Age Of Avengers Vs. Spider-Man’s Wedding Vs. X-Men Vs. Apocalypse: Even More Marvel Revivals On The Way

morevel

For the third week in a row, Marvel has released a string of teasers for summer 2015 comics that revisit or at least reference previous Marvel events, at a rate of one a day -- except Tuesday, which was all about the movies.

Last week, the wrench in the gears was a teaser that seemed to imply that the Ultimate Universe was coming to an end. There's nothing quite as big in this week's batch, which included Avengers vs. X-Men, Age of Apocalypse, and Future Imperfect. But one event of the bunch does seem... kind of risky. It's called Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows and it revisits Peter Parker's marriage... and daughter.

The Top Five Spooky Comics Alliance ‘Top Five’ Videos

TopFiveMash

If there's one thing we've learned from our years on the Internet, it's that there's no aspect of comics that can't be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there's no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we're taking it upon ourselves to compile lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

All month long, we've been devoting our lists to spoooooky topics, from great horror stories to scary villains and the greatest stories about a certain fanged count. So today, with Halloween finally upon us, we've put them all together for your trick-or-treating enjoyment!

Netflix Greenlights New Series About The Enemy Of All That Is Good And Just In This World: Richie Rich

Rich01

I consider myself to be a relatively reasonable adult, but if I'm honest with you, there's definitely a list of fictional characters that I hate as though they were real people. As irrational as it may be, there's just this intense level of pure, all-consuming hatred that I feel whenever they come up -- and right at the top of the list, next to Lucy Lane and Funky Winkerbean's Les Moore, is that rotten little plutocrat Richie Rich. I cannot even begin to explain how much I hate that kid.

As a result, I've been in a sour mood since yesterday, when Netflix announced a new live-action Richie Rich series, starring Jake Brennan as the title trillionaire.

Marvel Comics Is Giving Jack Kirby A Creator Credit

Jack Kirby creator credit from Wolverine and the X-Men #11

Those of you who take a moment to read the credits pages of your weekly Marvel Comics may have noticed that there's been a small change that started in this week's batch: Jack Kirby is receiving a creator credit for characters and teams that he co-created.

The new credit comes only a few weeks after Marvel and the Kirby family reached an agreement that settled a lawsuit that lasted five years, just before the Supreme Court was set to announce whether it would hear the case. While the details of the settlement haven't been released, giving Kirby a creator credit in the comics certainly seems to fit the joint statement released by both parties in September, which mentioned "advancing their shared goal of honoring Mr. Kirby’s significant role in Marvel’s history."

Princess Bubblegum Takes A Road Trip In Leth & Sterling’s ‘Adventure Time: Bitter Sweets’ [Preview]

Untitled-1

On sale next week from the kaboom! imprint of Boom! Studios, Adventure Time: Bitter Sweets is the fourth in a series of original graphic novels starring the characters from Pendleton Ward's enduringly popular and influential animated series. The first three, printed in black and white, explored scenarios and relationships like Finn and Princess Flame's budding romance; a coming-of-age journey with some of the series' idiosyncratic princesses; and a teen-type angst opus starring Marceline the Vampire Queen. Courtesy of writer Kate Leth and artist Zachary Sterling, Bitter Sweets is a full-color adventure (obvs) focused squarely on Princess Bubblegum and Peppermint Butler, who is her butler (obvs), as they traverse the lands beyond the Candy Kingdom.

Report: Sony Considering All-Female Spider-Man Team-Up Movie

Marvel
Marvel

It wasn't that long ago that we heard Sony had plans for a female-led 'Spider-Man' spinoff film, which was good news considering that -- at the time -- neither Marvel nor Warner Bros. had made an official announcement for a female superhero film. With the world of 'Amazing Spider-Man' in a bit of disarray over at Sony for the time being, things are, well, still up in the air, but a new rumor has it that the studio has plans for another female-driven Spider-Man project -- one that would feature multiple leading ladies.

Best Art Ever (This Week): Halloween 2014 Edition

Untitled-1

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.
In honor of Halloween, we’ve compiled the darkest and spookiest selections from Best Art Evers past.

Ask Chris #218: The Scariest Comic Of All Time Is A ‘Garfield’ Story From 1989

Ask Chris #218, art by Erica Henderson

Q: Is Garfield: Alone the best horror story in comics? -- @discord_inc

A: Even though I usually try to do an entire month of spooky questions every October, this is, I believe, the first time an installment of Ask Chris has ever been posted on Halloween, and it wasn't surprising that a lot of readers asked me about stories that scared me, or what I thought was the single most frightening comic of all time. To be honest, it's not a difficult question to answer, either. The comics I love are full of scary stuff, from the grotesque horror of Alan Moore and Rick Veitch's swamp thing to the horrific imagery that you'd get in manga like The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service.

But if you want to see something really scary? No question. There are six days of Garfield from 1989 that'll turn your hair white.

Get Ready For ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ With Your Own Infinity Gauntlet Glove!

i-gauntlet

Marvel has officially announced that Phase 3 of their Marvel Cinematic Universe will come to a close with 'Avengers: Infinity War,' which will be released in two parts in May of 2018 and 2019. Judging from the recently released trailer (and what we already know about Marvel comics), it will follow Thanos as he gets his hands on all six Infinity stones (Soul, Time, Space, Mind, Reality and Power), gaining God-like power in the process (and using it all to impress Death, who he's desperately in love with). What better way to celebrate this massive Marvel event with your very own Infinity Gauntlet?!
