Marvel NOW! Appears On ‘Jeopardy!’, Fans Of Exclamation Points Rejoice


As a fan of trivia, things phrased in weird ways and high-stakes gambling, I watch Jeopardy! almost every day, and it's always a nice surprise when a category or answer shows up that has something to do with comics...

More Milo Manara Covers Coming from Marvel NOW [Art]


Italian artist Milo Manara is a true master of the comics form, and has for decades now created enduringly beautiful works like Indian Summer, Click and El Guacho, just to name a few. I love to read his comics because Manara's delicate figures, luscious backgrounds and ultra-crisp layouts demonstrate an uncommonly careful consideration of how every line serves to build immersive worlds, create believable characters, and tell compelling stories -- stories which are more often than not decidedly sexual...

Way and Dillon’s ‘Thunderbolts’ Brings a MAX Flavor to Marvel NOW [Review]


The first thing you'll likely notice about the new Thunderbolts #1 from writer Daniel Way and artist Steve Dillon is that it is a violent comic. It's also not necessarily the comic you were expecting...

Hickman & Opena’s ‘Avengers’ #1 Is Big, Cool, and Gorgeous [Spoiler-Free Review]


Out this week is the first issue of Jonathan Hickman's obviously meticulously planned and apparently very lengthy run on Marvel's Avengers franchise. Avengers #1 -- by Hickman (Fantastic Four/FF, The Manhattan Projects) with art from Jerome Opeña (Uncanny X-Force, Fear Agent, Punisher) and colors by Dean White (Uncanny X-Force, Captain America) -- can perhaps be best summed up in one word: big. Okay,...

New Mike Deodato Art Shows Marvel & Hickman Are 10 Issues Deep on ‘Avengers’


In what should be very good news for comics retailers and dedicated readers of Jonathan Hickman, Marvel has confirmed that the writer's forthcoming Avengers series -- which doesn't even launch until next month -- already has ten issues in (or at least within arm's reach of) the proverbial can, thus reducing the chance of a shipping or production delay to a very low order of probability...

Fraction, Bagley and Allred Rein In ‘Fantastic Four’ and ‘FF’ [Double-Review]


One way creators try to leave their stamp on company-owned characters is to raise the stakes of a story. "I told the biggest ________ story ever," they want to say as they move on to other work. Of course, raising the stakes in a Fantastic Four book, considering that the original creative team of Jack Kirby and Stan Lee put the heroes in a situation in which Earth was threatened by a planet-eating demigod with a device that could destroy the universe, is a particular challenge...

Mark Waid and Leinil Yu’s ‘Indestructible Hulk': The Strongest #1 There Is? [Review]


First issues are a challenge that the superhero comics industry still struggles to get right, which is weird when you consider just how many of these things they put out. It's as if a collective decision was made to misinterpret the old adage, "every issue is somebody's first," to mean that first issues should read like they're any other issues...

Rick Remender and John Romita Jr. Return Captain America to Pure Superheroics [Review]


For the past decade or so, it's almost been a necessity for Captain America to serve as a kind of barometer of the national mood. He fought terrorists in the Middle East, searched for weapons of mass destruction, dealt with angry protest groups, quelled election anxieties, and even surrendered and died when a political rift between heroes grew too wide...

Paul Cornell & Alan Davis Team for New ‘Wolverine’ Series in March


Among the many Marvel Comics characters who are part of the publisher's Marvel NOW relaunch initiative is of course Wolverine. Very arguably Marvel's flagship character, the X-Man also known as Logan appears in seemingly all areas of the publisher's line, from X-Men to Avengers to Ultimate Comics and even the mature readers MAX label, and has himself enjoyed a solo title in continuous (albeit occasionally renumbered) publication since the late 1980s...
