Marvel Confirms Smaller, More Diverse ‘Avengers’ from Waid, Asrar and Kubert

ANAD Avengers-feat

Popular comics and entertainment news site The Wall Street Journal offered the exclusive confirmation this morning on the new post-Secret Wars Avengers roster and creative team, already outlined but not formally confirmed by one of the Marvel Free Comic Book Day offerings earlier this year. As expected, the book will be written by Mark Waid with art by Mahmud Asrar, with the addition of artist Adam Kubert on alternating arcs. The team members are exactly as outlined in the FCBD comic, with no surprises; Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Vision, Spider-Man, Ms Marvel and Nova.

Spider-Gwen Is Coming Back (And So Is The Marvel Multiverse)

SpiGwen2015001_feat

Marvel's steady stream of announcements ahead of next week's Previews reveal continued today, first with the surprising reveal of the new team on Captain Marvel, and then with news of Spider-Gwen's return. The latter announcement is less groundbreaking, but still very welcome, and it comes with a twist. The original Spider-Gwen creative team of writer Jason Latour and artist Robbi Rodriguez will continue to be the Spider-Gwen creative team after Secret Wars --- and Gwen's adventures will continue to take place in a separate reality from the main Marvel Universe.

Kris Anka and the ‘Agent Carter’ Showrunners Take Over ‘Captain Marvel’

captain-marvel-feat

Yesterday we learned that Kelly Sue DeConnick will not continue on Captain Marvel when the title returns after Secret Wars --- an unsurprising move given her creator-owned successes and her increasing involvement in movie and TV production through her Milkfed Criminal Masterminds shingle. Today we've learned who'll replace her on the next iteration of Captain Marvel; the writing team of Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas, best known to Marvel fans as the showrunners on the Agent Carter TV show. They're joined by artist Kris Anka, who also worked with the writers on a tweaked costume design for the captain.

Doctor Strange Finally Gets A New Ongoing Series, Courtesy of Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo

Doctor_Strange_1_Cover-feat

It's been almost twenty years since Marvel last attempted an ongoing Doctor Strange comic, despite the character having a reputation as one of the most pitched characters among writers. During his tenure as editor-in-chief, Joe Quesada always said he was waiting for the right pitch to come along. That right pitch must have finally arrived — just in time for the next Marvel line-wide relaunch, and in good time for next year's Doctor Strange movie — because Entertainment Weekly today unveiled a new Doctor Strange #1 from Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo.

Miles Morales is Spider-Man in the New Marvel U (But What Does This Really Mean?)

morales-spider-man-feat

The New York Daily News revealed on Sunday that Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli will launch a new ongoing Marvel series starring Miles Morales in the wake of Secret Wars — with the twist that this will be the first series starring Miles to be set in the main Marvel Universe rather than the Ultimate Universe. (Two major universes entered Secret Wars; one will leave.)

While previous Miles Morales titles bore the names Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man and Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man, this book will unsurprisingly forego the now defunct 'Ultimate' branding. More surprisingly, it won't pick up a new adjective in its place. The new Miles Morales title is simply called Spider-Man.

Exclusive: Strike a Pose with Noelle Stevenson’s Variant Cover for ‘Runaways’ #2

Runaways_2_Stevenson_Variant-feat

Though the return of the original Runaways team remains high on a lot of comics fans' ultimate wishlist, the Secret Wars version --- featuring the rag-taggiest of teams of cross-universe teens --- is easily one of the most hotly anticipated titles to come out of Battleworld, thanks to the stellar creative team of Noelle Stevenson and Sanford Greene.

Nimona writer/artist Stevenson is writing the book, with Greene on pencils, but that doesn't mean we don't get to see Stevenson's take on the motley crew, which includes versions of Molly Hayes, Jubilee, Amadeus Cho, and Cloak and Dagger. Stevenson has lined up some of the crew for this variant cover for the second issue, revealed exclusively here on ComicsAlliance.

Illustrator Ryan Lang Makes His Comics Debut in ‘Legends Of The Guard’

ryanlang-feat

Earlier this week we ran an exclusive preview of Legends of the Guard #4, the final installment of the latest collection of short stories told by amazing creators in the world of David Petersen's Mouse Guard. One of the standouts among the many stories told through the three volumes of the anthology is Ryan Lang's "The Watcher's Stone," a moving and inventive ten-page story.

Lang is completely new to comics, but he's an accomplished freelance illustrator and animator whose credits include work on last year's Disney animated movie Big Hero 6. ComicsAlliance spoke briefly to Lang about his artistic process and how he came to Legends of the Guard.

Selina Kyle is Back in the Catsuit in ‘Catwoman’ #41 [Exclusive Preview]

CTW_Cv41_ds-feat

Costume has played a big part in writer Genevieve Valentine's approach to Catwoman since she took over the title with issue #35 late last year. Selina Kyle traded in her famous leather catsuit for a tailored black tuxedo to take on the role of Gotham City mob boss, a look designed to evoke power and status. The next issue, out this Wednesday, sees Sellina putting the suit back on to get her gloves dirty once again --- but that doesn't stop her from also wearing a pretty fabulous opera gown.

Check out our exclusive preview, with art by David Messina and colors by Lee Loughridge.

Stephen Strange Took An Axe: Who’s Who in the Second All-New All-Different Marvel Teaser

anadm2-feat

Marvel said it wouldn't be flooding fans with teaser images before it unveils its new line in Marvel Previews next month, but we all know those folks can't resist the drip-drip-drip of a good teaser campaign, so here we are! Less than 24 hours after the first teaser, a second image from artist David Marquez has been released that drops a whole bunch of hints about the future of the Marvel Universe, with characters from the X-Men, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Inhumans and even the Thunderbolts. If the first image was A-list, this one's a little less starry, but it may be a better indicator of some of the unexpected surprises that Marvel has in store.
