The Question: Which Series Should Marvel Launch Next?


For today’s question, we asked our writers; Which comics should Marvel Comics launch after Secret Wars? Marvel has been unveiling its new line-up over the past few days, with the full reveal coming on Wednesday 1 July, and what the publisher has announced thus far has shown plenty of promise, including a more diverse Avengers team and a new central role for Miles Morales in the Marvel Universe. But there's always room for more. More diversity, more originality, more weirdness.

Exclusive: Strike a Pose with Noelle Stevenson’s Variant Cover for ‘Runaways’ #2


Though the return of the original Runaways team remains high on a lot of comics fans' ultimate wishlist, the Secret Wars version --- featuring the rag-taggiest of teams of cross-universe teens --- is easily one of the most hotly anticipated titles to come out of Battleworld, thanks to the stellar creative team of Noelle Stevenson and Sanford Greene.

Nimona writer/artist Stevenson is writing the book, with Greene on pencils, but that doesn't mean we don't get to see Stevenson's take on the motley crew, which includes versions of Molly Hayes, Jubilee, Amadeus Cho, and Cloak and Dagger. Stevenson has lined up some of the crew for this variant cover for the second issue, revealed exclusively here on ComicsAlliance.

The Great Super-Costume Poll: Magic Pants (And Matching Shoes)


Costume design is one of the great strengths of the superhero genre, a way to establish distinctive visual shorthand for a character and reveal key details about concept, purpose, and personality. But which is the best superhero costume of all time? This month, we’re asking you to decide, by voting up your favorites and voting down the rest. When we have your votes, we’ll compile a list of the greatest super-costumes of all time.

For day three, it's the magic hour; five of the finest, flashiest, most flamboyant witch-and-wizard costumes in the business, ranging from the Gothic Lolita look of Runaways' Nico Minoru to the fishnet-and-top hat classic stage magician (with fishnets) look of Zatanna --- and not forgetting the weird robes and curlicued collar of Doctor Stephen Strange himself.
