Thanks to the creation of Deadpool's team of Mercs For Money, a number of D-List Marvel characters have been revitalized and reinvigorated to the point of being spun off into ongoing series, with Foolkiller being one of the recipients. Helmed by Max Bemis and Dalibor Talajic, the new series casts Greg Salinger as a psychiatrist for supervillains and Marvel has provided an unlettered preview of the first issue.
In January 2016, ABC News began telling a story of what life is currently like in Syria through a profile of one family trapped in the city of Madaya. Through updates from a woman who came to be known as "Madaya Mom," ABC News was able to provide a unique look into the Syrian crisis. ABC News has now partnered with Marvel Comics to create a digital comic that tells the story of Madaya Mom in a wholly unique way.

As Marvel Comics’ Secret Wars event continues, the publisher is still busy announcing titles for the All New, All Different Marvel status quo that follows it. Today, Marvel revealed another of those books, Red Wolf, written by Nathan Edmondson, with art by Dalibor Talajić, and covers and design work by Jeffrey Veregge.
Among the myriad worlds unveiled in Marvel's Secret Wars this summer is one inspired by Tibetan mysticism, Chinese mythology, and Marvel's very own mysterious fictional enclave of martial artist, K'un-Lun. Master of Kung-Fu by W Haden Blackman and Dalibor Talajic offers a Shaw Brothers spin on the Marvel Universe, centered on Shang-Ch's fight with his evil wizard father, and introducing new versions of Kitty Pryde, Elektra, Iron Fist, and more. Marvel has provided us with an exclusive unlettered four-page preview.
The mysteries of Battleworld, the new merged world that forms the basis for Marvel's forthcoming Secret Wars event, are slowly trickling out in the form of various tie-in titles and mini-series announcements. Thus far most of what we know either relates to Marvel Universe characters like Magneto and Loki, or describes in broad terms the publisher's plans for the various "warzones." But today Marvel announced the first specific mini-series set in a Battleworld world; Master Of Kung-Fu.
Written by Haden Blackman and illustrated by Dalibor Talajic, the series is set in the mystical land of K'un Lun and stars Shang-Chi in fight to dethrone his despotic father. Fans will know that Shang-Chi's father in old Marvel continuity was none other than Fu Manchu -- a character Marvel long ago lost the rights to. A recent retcon introduced a new identity for his father, an ancient sorcerer named Zu, and the new series looks set to cement that change.
