Chelsea Cain, Kate Niemczyk and Rachelle Rosenberg's eight-issue series about the life and times of Mockingbird is one of the best Big Two comics I’ve ever read. It made me a fan of the character and everyone involved in the making of it, so much so that it inspired me to compile a mixtape in tribute to last year's cult-favorite. I like to imagine these are the songs Mockingbird AKA Bobbi Morse listens to when she’s in waiting rooms, on the way to missions, when she’s working out, or driving around.
The younger, faster, fitter version of Nick Fury has been around in the Marvel Universe for a good while now, but outside of a few adventures in anthology titles, he really hasn't had the chance to shine as his own character. That all changes soon, as James Robinson, ACO, Hugo Petrus and Rachelle Rosenberg's Nick Fury #1 comes out next month, and we've got a first look at the gorgeous unlettered art.
With Civil War II done and dusted, Marvel has its eyes on the next big event to change everything forever. The publisher has shared teasers for an upcoming storyline titled "Secret Empire," but no further information has been revealed.
Given the current storyline in Captain America: Steve Rogers, in which Rogers has been rewritten as a secret fascist, and the events of the original "Secret Empire" story, in which the US government was infiltrated by extremists at the highest levels, it seems likely that the new "Secret Empire" story will see Rogers' HYDRA insinuate its way further into the Marvel Universe --- and the groundwork has been laid with the appointment of a new director of SHIELD in this week's Marvel comics.
In the 2016 Marvel mini-series Vote Loki, readers see what happens when a strong personality with no real beliefs outside of their own narcissism runs for the highest office in the land, and how easily a large portion of the voting public can be swayed into voting for someone based on buzzwords and a perceived common bond.
Earlier this year children's horror legend R.L. Stine of Goosebumps fame was revealed to have a mystery Marvel Comics project in the pipeline, and speculation was rife as to which of the many iconic horror characters in the publisher's roster it could be. Today, Stine has announced that he will helm a five issue Man-Thing miniseries with art by German Peralta, Daniel Johnson and Rachelle Rosenberg.
There's always been a seamless crossover between video games and comic books, and odds are if you're a fan of one, you're a fan of the other. Comics have been adapted into video games and vice-versa for almost as long as video games have been "a thing," and as both mediums have evolved, so too has the quality of those crossovers. With the holidays around the corner, we've put together a selection of some of the best video game related comics and art books for the gamer in your life.
James Robinson's anthology-style Scarlet Witch series has taken the often maligned mutant witch and spun her into the center of a spellbinding occult detective narrative. ComicsAlliance caught up with Robinson to talk about what makes Wanda's adventures so different this time around, and how this story separates her from her traditional Marvel settings.
We also have an exclusive first look at Jonathan Marks' art for Scarlet Witch #13, featuring breathtaking colors by Rachelle Rosenberg.
It’s relaunch season at Marvel Comics, and while that always brings a wave of new and exciting titles, it also means we have to say goodbye to titles that are cancelled quietly and shuffled away into a category marked “Cult Favorite”. The past month has seen the end of a number of critically acclaimed titles including Nighthawk and A-Force, but the one I’m going to miss the most is Mockingbird by Chelsea Cain, Kate Niemczyk, and Rachelle Rosenberg, which ended with its eight issue recently.
Given his latest acclaimed runs on books like Secret Warriors, S.H.I.E.L.D. and the recently launched Future Foundation at Marvel, Jonathan Hickman isn't exactly a hard sell to mainstream comic fans...
