Joe Phillips’ ‘Silver Screen Heroes’ Imagines an Old Hollywood Take on Superhero Movies

jp-screen-feat

Joe Phillips' table in Artists' Alley is always an essential stop for me at San Diego Comic Con. The former Heretic and Superboy artist is one of the only guys at any comics show who can always be counted on for a great selection of quality beefcake pin-ups that rival the cheesecake that's so prevalent on other artists' tables. If you're in the market for a coquettish Angel, or a stripping Steve Rogers, Joe Phillips is your man.

But this year Phillips had something new on his table --- and so incredibly camp that it may appeal to much of the same audience that loves the hero beefcake. Phillips has taken some of the biggest stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood and cast them as some of the biggest names in superhero comics, to give fans a vision of what these movies might have looked like in another era.

Doctor Strange already boasts an impressive cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor, but Marvel isn’t ready to stop there.

All New, All Different Marvel: Your Guide to the Marvel Universe Books

anad-mu

Our round-up of the All-New All-Different Marvel titles concludes with the books that don't quite fit anywhere else. This is the catch-all category that Marvel tends to call things like 'Marvel Universe', or 'Marvel Knights', or 'Marvel Heroes'. That makes this sound like a clearing house, and the presence of Agents of SHIELD supports that case, but you'll also find some of Marvel's most important titles here; titles that just don't quite fit elsewhere.

Doctor_Strange_1_Cover-feat

It's been almost twenty years since Marvel last attempted an ongoing Doctor Strange comic, despite the character having a reputation as one of the most pitched characters among writers. During his tenure as editor-in-chief, Joe Quesada always said he was waiting for the right pitch to come along. That right pitch must have finally arrived — just in time for the next Marvel line-wide relaunch, and in good time for next year's Doctor Strange movie — because Entertainment Weekly today unveiled a new Doctor Strange #1 from Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo.

Marvel said it wouldn't be flooding fans with teaser images before it unveils its new line in Marvel Previews next month, but we all know those folks can't resist the drip-drip-drip of a good teaser campaign, so here we are! Less than 24 hours after the first teaser, a second image from artist David Marquez has been released that drops a whole bunch of hints about the future of the Marvel Universe, with characters from the X-Men, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Inhumans and even the Thunderbolts. If the first image was A-list, this one's a little less starry, but it may be a better indicator of some of the unexpected surprises that Marvel has in store.
