ComicsAlliance Week in Review: March 17-22

Last weekend was WonderCon in Anaheim, California, and the event brought quite a few announcement from the big publishers. We have a round-up of our coverage of many of those, as well as a round-up of all of our coverage from the last week, after the jump.


Marvel announced a new X-Treme X-Men title, by Greg Pak and Stephen Segovia

At WonderCon, Marvel announced Brian Wood would be writing two X-Men titles, and Jeff Parker’s Thunderbolts would get a more marketable new title

-IDW’s WonderCon announcements included a new Rocketeer series by Mark Waid and Chris Samnee and a Womanthology ongoing, plus a slate of new works that will include a Crow series and a collection of Dave Stevens’ non-Rocketeer work

Kelly Sue DeConnick will be writing Marvel’s upcoming Captain Marvel series, which will feature former Ms. Marvel Carol Danvers in the title role, and Laura Hudson spoke to DeConnick about it in an interview
