Since arriving in the mainstream Marvel Universe following Secret Wars, Old Man Logan has taken on a life of his own as a standout solo star, and his adventures beyond the original eight issues have been expanded upon in great detail.

However, what a lot of people forget is that Mark Millar actually wrote a sequel to "Old Man Logan" at the same time as he was writing the original, as part of an experimental attempt to link his work-for-hire superhero comics with his own creator-owned franchises.

Millar & Immonen Go On The Run In ‘Empress’ #1 [Preview]

Empress-Header

Mark Millar has been the lynch-pin of Marvel’s creator owned imprint Icon for the past several years, way back to the first volume of Kick-Ass in 2008. Since then, at Icon and beyond, he’s generated a wave of new independent comics with A-List collaborators such as Steve McNiven, Frank Quitely and Sean Gordon Murphy, and many of those books have been adapted to films.

Empress continues Millar’s trend of superstar collaborators as he teams with Stuart Immonen (plus inker Wade von Grawbadger and colorist Ive Svorcina) to tell a sprawling sci-fi story about an enslaved intergalactic queen on the run from her tyrannical husband, with her three children in tow. Check out a preview!

The Best Marvel Event of the Past Ten Years Is… ?

marvelevents

The Marvel Comics line is about mid-way through its giant line-wide crossover event Secret Wars, in which reality has been rewritten by god-emperor Doom, and the heroes have been re-imagined more than a dozen times over in different domains paying tribute to stories from throughout Marvel's publishing history.

One of those domains is a version of House of M, another reality-rewriting crossover event that cast the Marvel heroes in different roles, which ran ten years ago. House of M launched the current era of Marvel events, kicking off a steady steam of universe-shaking storylines that continues into Secret Wars. To mark the tenth anniversary of House of M, and ten years of event-driven storytelling, we're asking you to determine which of these events was the very best.

Nemesis was initially set up at 20th Century Fox with Tony Scott attached to direct, but following the director’s untimely death, the property entered development limbo — until now.

Alpha Flight Of Fancy: When Will Canada’s Great Creators Get A Crack At Canada’s Greatest Super-Team?

Canada is comics’ secret super-power. As far back as 1938, when Toronto-born Joe Shuster created Superman with Cleveland’s Jerry Siegel, Canada has been a vital partner -- a Wild Child to America's Sabtretooth. (Age of Apocalypse version.)

”We have so many great artists and writers to choose from, it’s such an embarrassment of riches,” says Ty Templeton, a writer and artist who has worked for most major publishers and on most big name characters, and who knows just about everyone in the business. When he says Canada's creative community boasts an embarrassment of riches, he knows what he's talking about. So on this beautiful and proud Canada Day, we at Comics Alliance have to ask; why hasn't a Canadian creative team ever taken on Canada's best-known superhero team, Alpha Flight?
