At today's Mondo Marvel panel at Comic-Con, Marvel announced today that a second volume is on the way for "Strange Tales" -- the anthology of superhero tales written by indie creators. The "Strange Tales II" miniseries begins in October 2001, and will comprise three-oversized issues of comics shorts reimagining Marvel characters through the lens of a whole slew of creators, including Kate Beaton, Nick Gurewitch, Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez, and the recently departed Harvey Pekar. Even better, the "Strange Tales" comics will contain no ads whatsoever! Check out a larger version of the art a longer list of creators involved after the jump.
