As you may have noticed from all our recent Batman '89 content, comic books are pretty big on celebrating anniversaries. There's only one problem: You sort of need to wait for those anniversaries to actually happen, and we as readers have never been all that great with the concept of patience. I mean, does anyone really want to wait around until the 2060s to celebrate the centennial of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's Marvel Age of Comics?
Marvel Comics certainly doesn't, which is why they're gearing up for a series of 100th Anniversary Specials, set to be released next month -- 50 years before those anniversaries actually happen. For the Avengers, Marvel's tapped Orc Stain and Wonton Soup cartoonist James Stokoe to reveal the future of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
Today, we've got an exclusive look at Stokoe's characteristically frenzied, hyper-detailed pages from the upcoming one-shot special, which includes such compellingly weird concepts as an Avengers team made up of Beta Ray Bill, Rogue and Doctor Strange; a sentient Stark Tower; an America lost to the Negative Zone; and the Mole Man -- because the Mole Man has always been weird enough. We spoke to Stokoe about why he chose the heroes and villains to populate the Avengers of 2061, and what he sees for comics as a business in the next 50 years.
Last time Beta Ray Bill appeared in the pages of Marvel comics with a character named Nova, he was fighting the Cancerverse alongside the previous Nova, Richard Rider, in the pages of 2010's The Thanos Imperative. Now there's a new Nova, and Bill's coming back to find out what the new kid, Sam Alexander, is all about.
The alien hero shows up in Nova #13 (which also has a big #1 on the cover, presumably because of the creative team change), writer Gerry Duggan's first issue on the book with artist Paco Medina.

And there came a week, a week unlike any other, when The Avengers movie opened on Friday, May 4 and every comic book fan on the internet found themselves united in talking about the same thing. In the spirit of this sensation, ComicsAlliance has tapped artist Chris Haley (Let's Be Friends Again, C
If you've been keeping up with Marvel's Fear Itself, you're already aware that Thor has been having a pretty rough time lately. Arguments with his dad (who happens to be the omnipotent Allfather of Asgard), the looming threat of Galactus and a battle against the hammer-wielding Worthy who threaten to destroy the world -- it's safe to say that the dude has a lot of problems right now.
Thanks to the live action Thor movie, Marvel's thunder god has had a pretty robust summer of Minimates from Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum. Fans heading to San Diego Comic-Con International next month are in for an even bigger does of miniature Asgardian action as the very appropriately named "Stormbreaker" box set comes to the Action Figure Xpress both #3345 with new versions of Thor, Sif, Loki and, of course, the first ever Beta Ray Bill Minimate.The last of the
If you haven't been reading "Thor and the Warriors Four" by Alex Zalben with art by Gurihiru, then you've been missing an incredibly adorable story involving Power Pack in Asgard. In the most recent issue, this culminated in the entirety of Asgard getting turned into babies, including a baby version of Beta Ray Bill that is so cute it's stupid. If you missed this
