This January, Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie are set to relaunch Marvel's Young Avengers, blending established characters from the original Allan Heinberg/Jim Cheung run with a few new faces and a direction featuring battles that Gillen has described as "superheroes clubbing."
It's of course very typical for variant covers to be illustrated by big name artists, but I think it's pretty rare for the pairing of title and artist to be as natural -- even inspired -- as it is here, where Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O'Malley draws the Young Avengers for the variant cover of issue #1. Launching in January of next year, the se
Not content with writing critically-acclaimed series about teenage characters in Journey Into Mystery and Generation Hope, Kieron Gillen is revamping Marvel's premiere teen super team as he and Phonogram partner Jamie McKelvie relaunch Young Avengers in 2013 as part of the ongoing Marvel NOW! roll-out.
The new series brings together members of the original Young Avengers team created by Allan Heinberg and Jim Cheung - Wiccan, Hulkling and Kate Bishop - with a numb
Clearly, the Marvel NOW! teasers are just getting unfairly abusive with the latest release. After all, Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie have been making comics together (The wonderful Phonogram) and separately (Gillen's Uncanny X-Men and Journey Into Mystery, McKelvie's Defenders and Suburban Glamour, amongst others) for years. But despite that, now they're being described as "Amateurs"? I mean, that's just cruel.More seriously, the teaming of Gillen and McKe
In what writer Kieron Gillen very accurately described as "bad news," his and artist Jamie McKelvie's much anticipated (by us especially) return to their urban fantasy series Phonogram has been delayed until next year. Subtitled The Immaterial Girl, the new miniseries was meant to debut before
If you've been following Bryan Lee O'Malley's Twitter and Tumblr feeds, you are no doubt aware that the Scott Pilgrim creator has been mainlining a lot of vintage X-Men comics as of late, compelling him to create this reinterpretation of the beautiful and deadly and occasionally Japanese mutant ninja known as Psylocke. O'Malley's take on the character is notably thongless but does adapt the "thigh rings" element of her famously skimpy costume as modern leggings, rounded out with some fashionably chunky platform wedges. X-Men: Season One artist and fell
There are certain phrases that have a special resonance for a Marvel kid like me. "Pocket dimension." "Lift (press)." "Marital status: unrevealed." This is the language of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, and I used to pore over the pages of those little encyclopedias like I thought there was an exam coming. (I woul
On sale next month is Defenders #8, beginning artist Jamie McKelvie's run on the Marvel Comics superhero series written by Matt Fraction. McKelvie replaces Terry and Rachel Dodson on the series, which stars Doctor Strange, Iron Fist, Silver Surfer, and Red She-Hulk on a quest that Fraction said he hopes will explain "everything that has ever happened in the Marvel Universe." Best known fo
In advance of the Image Comics series' much anticipated return later this year, Phonogram: The Singles Club has finally manifested on the mighty comiXology digital comic book service. The sequel to the Britpop-inspired, black-and-white indie opus Rue Britannia, Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie's full-colo(u)r Singles Club
It was a somewhat slow day for announcements this Sunday at C2E2; besides the announcement of a new Gambit ongoing series, we learned that the Ultimate Comics "Divided We Fall" event will include all three Ultimate Comics titles and begin in July; the Asgardian titles Thor and Journey Into Mystery are set to clash in a major crossover in August titled "Everything Burns"; and Jamie McKelvie, fresh off of X-Men: Season One, will be joining Matt Fraction as the new regular artist on Defenders.The first major announcement of the day came at the Ultimate Comics panel, with the titles of the previously-announced-at-the-retailer-summit Ultimate crossover revealed as "Divided We Fall";
