Marvel Bringing Back Original Wolverine, Bruce Banner, Jean Grey, And More With ‘Marvel Generations’
Marvel is bringing back what can be quantifiably considered a “fucking shitload” of legacy characters, and will be pairing them with contemporary counterparts. Folks like Wolverine, Bruce Banner, Jean Grey, and more are returning. In what is just another confusing development in the Marvel comic book world for this old man.
Rob Liefeld’s Youngblood lives! And we are all the better for it, comrades.
Paul Dini is joining the creative team for Harley Quinn, starting in April. The genius behind the fan favorite will be writing an ongoing back-up story.
There’s a new, very Netflix-looking Elektra comic book hitting the shelves. Huzzah! One can imagine this title is coming courtesy of the character’s popularity in the second of Daredevil. The Netflix connection don’t stop there, either! No. Indeed, a writer from Netflix’s Luke Cage series shall be penning the series!
Party like it’s 1995! Just imagine, pubes are a really weird thing but you’re learning to cope with them, the PlayStation is about to kick all sorts of ass, and R.L. Stine’s latest Goosebumps novel is your monthly obsession! You can party as such, because said author is going to be writing comics for Marvel.
Hellboy may be dead, but his universe ain’t. Creator Mike Mignola is returning to his Hellboy mythos in 2017 with a new five-part series, The Visitor: How and Why He Stayed.
I have largely forgotten about the X-Men comics in recent years. There are myriad reasons: my own personal proclivity for reading non-Big Two comics, my own confusion about the current mythos, and them just being…okay? But Marvel seems to be angling to draw people like me back next year, with a serious, serious line-up relaunch.
Holy fucking shit. James Stokoe is bringing his own insane, beautiful, insane, kinetic, insane talents to a fucking Aliens mini-series? We are not worthy, but we will be lavished all the same.
Warren Ellis is helping DC revive the Wildstorm imprint, which they never should have fucking canned. IMO, IMO. I’m stoked! Goddamn stoked. Yeah, this is weak copy. I’m tired. But excited. Excitired.
Kate Bishop is getting her own Hawkeye title, courtesy of Kelly Thompson, Leonardo Romero and Jordie Bellaire. Fuck to the yes. I’ve been reneging on reading Marvel lately, or if I’m being honest, keeping up with the comic book grind at all. However! However. This might just be enough to get me back into the House of Ideas.
