Brian Michael Bendis has signed an exclusive deal with DC, holy shit. Nothing makes sense anymore

brian michael bendis dc exclusive

What the fuck? Brian Marvel Bendis is no more. The writer who sort of totally fucking *is* Marvel comics has signed an exclusive deal with DC. Honestly, I’m having a little trouble wrapping my brain around this.

Maybe: Bendis and Maleev’s comic ‘Scarlet’ heading to HBO


I really enjoyed Scarlet. Then it sort of went away for a long time, and either it never came back, or I just didn’t notice. It would make a dope HBO series though, that’s for sure. So make it so!

Marvel reveals ‘Civil War II’ comic event coming next year; cause movie synergy or something

Civil War II.

Ugh. Just like, ugh. I know that it makes sense for Marvel to run a “Civil War” event next year, during the time that the movie of the same name will drop. But man, as a reader, it just doesn’t do much for me. I understand that the comic books are an idea-factory to come up with concepts for the movies, but sometimes you just don’t want to see the machinery in such stark relief.

Mary Jane Watson joining Bendis’ ‘Invincible Iron Man’ supporting cast

Mary Jane.

Mary Jane Watson is joining the pages of…Invincible Iron Man? Hey. I don’t know. It could be cool. Marvel certainly seems to be shuffling around the status quo post-Secret Wars, and there’s every chance the new deck (is this metaphor crumbling?) could be dope. What do you think.

Marvel Studios’ “Creative Committee” has disbanded, but I ain’t sweating it

Marvel Studios.

Lots of restructuring going around in Marvel Studios this week. First it was announced that Kevin Feige more/less seized complete control of Marvel Studios from Isaac Perlmutter. Perlmutter being known for, you know, saying women don’t enjoy superhero flicks or need action figures. So I was like, okay, cool. And now comes news that Marvel Studios’ “Creative Committee” is being disbanded. Initial thoughts? I don’t really fucking care. At this point (seven years in), I’m willing to accept whatever Shepherd Feige has in mind for the MCU. He’s earned enough goodwill to buy my good faith thrice over, especially if reports of the “Creative Committee” was more a source of frustration for the minds behind than MCU than anything else. TL;DR – I trust Feige, let him have the MCU.

Oh shit! Miles Morales! Spider-Man. Maybe not in the movies, but the web slinger is headlining a Spider-Title in the comics this Fall.

Marvel reveals that an original X-Man, Bobby Drake (Iceman) is gay


A bunch of panels from tomorrow’s All-New X-Men have leaked, and revealed that Marvel’s Bobby Drake is gay. It’s a pretty rad development, though I have to say the writing behind the reveal is pretty ass.

Bendis and Sorrentino reviving ‘Old Man Logan’ for ‘Secret Wars’ series

old man logan 2

Old Man Logan. Like, the last thing I enjoyed from Mark Millar. Didn’t really need any additional mythos added after its coda, but apparently we are getting a new tale anyways.

Brian Michael Bendis is leaving ‘Uncanny X-Men’, signs new exclusive contract with Marvel

Brian Marvel Bendis.

Brian Michael Bendis is leaving Uncanny X-Men and All-New X-Men. Which is no big whoop to me, because I didn’t dig Uncanny and All-New went stale potato chip over the course of twenty issues or so. However, I do give a big whoop about the creator signing a new exclusive contract with Marvel. It’s uh, big news or something?

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ getting team-up book. ‘Cause yeah.

gratuitous and dumb butt shot

We have crossed the SUPERHERO TEAM RUBICON. Proudly charging into OMEGA LEVELS of absurdity. Riffing on the insane popularity (understandably, you pig fucks) of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel is teaming them up with others. YO DAWG I HEARD YOU LIKE TEAM-UPS WITH YOUR TEAMS.
