Lemire & Perez Relaunch ‘Hawkeye’; Spencer & Rosanas Launch New ‘Ant-Man’ [NYCC]

antmanhawkeye-hed

One is perhaps the most predictable solo title Marvel could launch in 2015; the other may come as more of a surprise. 2015 sees new #1s for two Avengers; Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man in January, and Clint Barton, Hawkeye, in March -- hot on the heels of the resolution of the previous Eisner-winning Hawkeye series from Matt Fraction, David Aja and Annie Wu.

Announced at the Axel-in-Charge panel at New York Comic-Con on Sunday, Ant-Man is an ongoing series from writer Nick Spencer and artist Ramon Rosanas -- and the first trade collection should be safely in stores in time for Ant-Man movie to hit theaters in July. Meanwhile Hawkeye #1 sees Jeff Lemire make his Marvel debut, teamed with artist Ramon Perez on pencils.

Operation_S.I.N._hed

Brought to the screen by Hayley Atwell in the 2011 Marvel Studios movie Captain America: The First Avenger, Peggy Carter has experienced a major leap in prominence among Marvel's vast world of characters. She'll soon be the first female character to lead a live action Marvel Studios adaptation with Agent Carter debuting on ABC in January -- and she'll simultaneously star in her own mini-series from Marvel Comics.

As announced at New York Comic-Con on Saturday, Peggy will be joined by Howard Carter and the mysterious Woodrow McCord in the five issue Original Sin prequel series Operation S.I.N., set in the weird world of the Marvel Universe of the 1950s. ComicsAlliance spoke to writer Kathryn Immonen and artist Rich Ellis to find out more about the series and their vision of Peggy.

Rosario Dawson Is Playing Claire Temple, And Other News From The Netflix Daredevil Panel [NYCC]

ddhed

The Netflix Daredevil panel took place at New York Comic-Con on Saturday evening, and the biggest revelation is that Rosario Dawson is not playing any of the characters anyone guessed she might be playing. In fact she's playing a relatively obscure supporting character from the Luke Cage comics of the 1970s, Claire Temple.

Those lucky enough to attend the panel were treated to a preview clip that showed Temple, a nurse, tending to a wounded Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox). Other clips showed Daredevil rescuing Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) from a mugger, Vincent D'Onofrio as the Kingpin, and first glimpse inside the law offices of Nelson & Murdock. Following the panel, Marvel released images showing the first official glimpses of Daredevil, both in an early costume and in his civilian identity.

Guardians And X-Men Clash In ‘Black Vortex’; Peggy Carter Returns In ‘Operation S.I.N.’; Next ‘Star Wars’ Comic Unveiled [NYCC]

cupojoe

Marvel is planning its first big cosmic event since the end of the Dan Abnett/Andy Lanning-penned Annihilation/War of Kings cycle that ran from 2006 to 2010. (Or last year's Infinity, if you count that, but that was all about Earth, so we don't.) Black Vortex will cross over between Guardians of the Galaxy, the space-bound All-New X-Men, Cyclops, Legendary Star-Lord, Nova, Captain Marvel, and more.

Marvel also announced Operation S.I.N., by Kathryn Immonen and Rich Ellis, which serves as both a prequel of sorts to the recent Original Sin event and a tie-in to Marvel's Agent Carter TV show; and Kanan: The Last Padawan, a five issue mini series also written by Greg Weisman and illustrated by Pepe Larraz, tying in to the Star Wars: Rebels animated series.

Wolverine Is Dead; Long Live ‘Wolverines’ By Fawkes, Soule, Bradshaw & More [NYCC]

wolverines-hed

Wolverine is dead. I think. Or about to be dead; I'm not actually up-to-date on that book. But either way, one of Marvel's biggest heroes is certainly dying, fictionally-speaking, and he'll be gone from Marvel's books for... an uncertain period of time. Excluding flashbacks and alternate dimensions, maybe. And the possibility that he's not dead.

Killing Wolverine could actually be a smart move for Marvel; the character has been over-exposed for decades, to a degree that dilutes his appeal. Taking him off the board for a period allows the character to rest and come back when people miss him and creators have something new to say about him, and turns his return into an event. The tactic worked well for Captain America and Peter Parker, among others. But Marvel can't ever be completely without Wolverine; that would be crazy. So in January it's launching an ongoing weekly series called Wolverines. Yes, weekly. Yes, plural.

Marvel Releases First Teaser For ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Animated Series [NYCC]

gotg-teaser2

Marvel Television has released the first teaser for its forthcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy animated series, set to air next year on the Disney XD channel. The clip introduces viewers to two of the animated cast -- Rocket Raccoon in gun-toting action, and Star-Lord offering up a taste of his best cocky swag -- and provides a taste of the show's fast-moving, neon-heavy animation style.

The animated series was "announced" at New York Comic-Con on Friday (it's been announced at least twice previously, including at San Diego Comic-Con, but people have short memories for things they haven't see). No official launch date has been given, as the series is still in production.

DC Vertigo Announces Two New Ongoing Series From Writers Tim Seeley And Gail Simone [NYCC]

vertigo-announce-nycc

As Vertigo's two currently longest-running series head to a close -- Bill Willingham's Fables and Mike Carey and Peter Gross's The Unwritten -- the DC imprint is doubtless looking for new series with long-term potential to run alongside FBP, Astro City, and American Vampire.

At New York Comic-Con on Friday the publisher announced two titles that might fit the bill, both from DC writers making their Vertigo debut. Grayson writer Tim Seeley will team with former Madame Xanadu artist Marley Zarcone on Effigy, while once and future Secret Six author Gail Simone and former 2000 AD artist Jonathan Davis-Hunt are the team behind Clean Room.

Intersect: Ray Fawkes’ Darkly Beautiful New Horror Series From Image [Interview]

intersect-hed

At this year's Fan Expo in Toronto I was lucky enough to see some of the pages for Ray Fawkes' new Image series Intersect up-close; beautiful painted pages depicting a world of darkness and dread. Fawkes is a self-taught artist who balances a mainstream career writing books like Constantine and the forthcoming Batman horror series Gotham By Midnight with more personal and often boldly experimental work, like his Oni Press books One Soul and The People Inside, which use the comics page to explore lives in parallel.

Intersect is an ongoing horror story set in a grotesquely distorted city -- but to know more than that, you'll need to read the book. ComicsAlliance spoke with writer and artist Ray Fawkes to learn more about the process behind Intersect and how he balances the different sides of his career.

‘Secret Wars’ Too: Marvel Unveils Its Big Event For 2015, From Hickman And Ribic [NYCC]

marvel-secretwars-hed

Jonathan Hickman has been building up to something big for the Marvel Universe for the entirety of his run on Avengers and New Avengers. His 'incursions' -- alternate realities colliding and wiping each other out -- were the driving force behind Infinity and the splinter that divided the Avengers in Original Sin; they now form the backdrop to his books as they skip to a new status quo under the 'Time Runs Out' banner. There was always a plan.

Now we know the culmination of that plan. As announced at a Times Square event for New York Comic-Con on Thursday evening, Hickman's Avengers runs will end in May 2015, and he'll be joined by artist Esad Ribic on a year-long epic event book called... Secret Wars.

No, for real. Secret Wars. Maybe they don't know that the name's been used before? No-one tell them. They've been working on this for ages; they'll be so disappointed.
