Jeff Lemire and Mark Millar have never met, but they have shared a mutual admiration for years. So when Millar cold-called (well, emailed) Lemire asking him to write Hit-Girl — featuring the breakout star of Millar’s Kick-Ass franchise — the Canadian cartoonist didn’t hesitate. And now that it’s happening, Lemire’s bringing Mindy McCready to his home and native land, complete with Eduardo Risso on art.
CBR connected with Lemire, and the creator of Black Hammer and Descender shared that as he continues to transition his career further and further towards creator-owned projects, he views Millar as the model for success.RELATED: Hit-Girl Invades Canada in this Exclusive First Look Preview
The Toronto-based writer/artist also spilled the bloody details about what to expect from Mindy’s upcoming Canadian adventure, which begins in Hit-Girl #5 on June 20 from Image Comics, and how an ex-NHL tough guy-turned-Canuck crime boss features in the 12-year old psychopath’s story. Lemire also revelled in the greatness of Risso, and the potential for “polite” bad people in Canada.Hit-Girl #5 cover by Eduardo RissoCBR: Hit-Girl #5 opens in a snow-covered field but in a flashback, we find out the story is set in Toronto. While Canada is obviously not without its own level of violence, especially in larger cities, speaking as a fellow Canadian, am I blinded to believe that the adventures of Hit-Girl — and her cohort Kick-Ass — are perhaps not better suited to the streets of New York, Chicago or Los Angeles?Jeff Lemire: There are bad people everywhere, even Canada. They are just way more polite about being bad here. [Laughs]Do you bring Mindy to the Great White North, as well, as I understand that the storyline will also feature some of Canada’s indigenous population, specifically the Cree?
Mindy does indeed head north after a brief stay in Toronto. As you know, the James Bay area is somewhere I have visited and explored in a lot of my recent work, from Roughneck to Secret Path so it was fun to bring an iconic character like Hit-Girl up north, too!Hit-Girl #5 interior art by Eduardo RissoWhat stands out most to you most about Canada’s First Nations population and what makes them such a powerful voice for comic book storytelling? Traditionally, they are collectively wildly underutilized as subjects and/or source material.
This story does not deal directly with indigenous issues or traditions. As I said, I have done that in recent work, but Hit-Girl is a much more high-octane sort of story, and in this instance it was the land itself that I felt would be a beautiful backdrop for her adventure, and I was dying to see how a master like Eduard Risso would render the north.Me too. [Laughs] And we’ve seen some interior pages for your first issue and Eduardo is, indeed, killing it. His collaboration with Brian Azzarello on 100 Bullets is next level and I also love the Batman story he drew with Azz for Wednesday Comics, too. I know you have a relationship with Brian from Future’s End, but did you know Eduardo before this project?
I do know Brian and have worked with him in the past. But I have never had a chance to work with Risso. I thought if I tried, Azz might knife me. [Laughs] But in this case he would have to go through Mark Millar to get to me, so I think I’m safe. But seriously, Risso is a true master. I have adored his work and his storytelling for years and I am truly humbled to be working with him.Hit-Girl #5 interior art by Eduardo RissoWhy is Eduardo the right fit for what you wanted to do with Hit-Girl? 

Are you kidding? He is the right fit for anything. [Laughs] But the landscape where I set the majority of this story is, visually, a place of extremes and extreme contrast. We take Mindy’s hyperactive sort of ultra-adventure, and put it in this stark but beautiful setting. Risso is the master of contrast. Light and dark. And it shows here. He is also able to inject an incredible amount of character and heart into what is a very violent and over-the-top story at times.We’ve also seen some variant covers. Who is the big man in the Canada jersey? He looks amazing.
That’s the Karl Kerschl cover. That man is our main bad guy. A fictional, ex-NHL tough guy turned Canuck crime boss named Billy Baker. He is a really fun, walking, talking Canadian cliché, and I had fun making Mindy dismantle him piece by piece.Hit-Girl #5 interior art by Eduardo RissoWere you a fan of the original Kick-Ass series and more broadly, the work of Mark Millar as a whole?
I greatly admire what Mark has built. As someone looking more and more to do creator-owned work, Mark is the model for where I would like my career to go. I am flattered beyond words that he asked me to follow him on Hit-Girl.How did you end up working with him on Hit-Girl? Did you have a previous relationship?
Mark and I have never met, but we are mutual admirers and have expressed that admiration via email a number of times. Mark emailed me out of the blue asking me to take over Hit-Girl after him and, like I said, I was very flattered and excited by that offer.RELATED: Mark Millar’s Hit-Girl Is Taking a Page From Suicide Squad’s Amanda WallerAny further/future plans to work with him?
I sure hope so. All he needs to do is ask.And when can we expect your Netflix deal to be announced?
[Laughs] Stay tuned.Hit-Girl #5 is scheduled for release on June 20 from Image Comics.

Writer Brian Michael Bendis worked for more than 18 years at Marvel Comics, where he co-created such characters as Miles Morales and Jessica Jones and penned lengthy runs of Ultimate Spider-Man and the Avengers titles. After all of that time, one would expect his big move to DC requires a period of adjustment. But surely the two superhero universes must share similarities, right?
“Not many,” he admitted in a lengthy interview with CBR. “I gotta tell you.”RELATED: Snyder Offers Early Mini-Review of Bendis & Reis’ Man of Steel #1
“I’m six months deep into it now,” continued DC’s new Superman writer. “As a co-author, I can tell you, DC the company does everything differently than Marvel does, including pay vouchers, to produce the same, final product. As a craft junkie, I’m obsessed with this. I love it. And there are some things that Marvel did that were a little better, and some things DC does a little better. It’s not a critique or a criticism, it’s just, they do things differently. How they all relate to each other is different. And I’m fascinated by it.”
However, Bendis noted the differences aren’t restricted to matters of processRELATED: Bendis’ Final Invincible Iron Man Ending, Explained
“From that, all the way to the energy of the shared universe — working on the Marvel shared universe is completely different than working in the shared universe at DC, and you’ll have to ask me a year from now how, because I can’t even wrap my head around what’s different,” he added. “I was thinking, if I was writing the Star Wars universe or the Westworld universe, it would feel as different to me, I guess. The story and the characters demand a different type of different energy and a different type of mindset from me, and that is fascinating.”
Bendis made his DC debut with a story in Action Comics #1000, to be followed next week with the launch of the Man of Steel six-issue weekly miniseries, and then in July with runs on Action Comics and Superman.
Bendis is working on a host of Superman stories for DC, including Man of Steel, a six issue weekly miniseries.
The post Bendis Says Writing the DC Universe Is ‘Completely Different’ From Marvel appeared first on CBR.

As Brian Michael Bendis prepares to start his runs on Superman and Action Comics following a six-issue Man of Steel weekly miniseries, the writer already knows his goal for Superman: making the Man of Steel relevant in a tumultuous time.
During a recent interview, CBR asked Bendis what elements of the character he was looking to highlight. “What he represents to our culture,” he replied. “He represents hope, and he was created in a time when there wasn’t a lot. He was created at a time where the world couldn’t be more fractured. Though we are not in the middle of a World War, we are in a very fractured time in our society. Everything feels different and off to a lot of people, no matter where you are on the global spectrum. Things are weird and different, and it feels less connected — even though it’s so weird, because we’re all connected. That’s when you need Superman.”RELATED: Bendis Predicts Worried Superman Fans Will End Up ‘Apologizing’ to Him
Bendis was also asked about what fresh approach he wanted to take when exploring the Man of Steel. “Superman relating to the world as it is right now is something I haven’t seen before,” he said. “That struggle that he’s going through as a father, with demands of responsibility more than you’d ever thought you’d have, I can relate to, as well. I’m not Superman, but I can relate to having as much responsibility as one person could have. Writing all of these things feels very truthful, feels very honest — if you have that, the rest is gravy. Having him punch Toyman after that is easy. ”Man of Steel #1, by Brian Michael Bendis, Joe Prado and Ivan Reis, is scheduled for release on May 30 from DC Comics.KEEP READING: Bendis’ Final Invincible Iron Man Ending, Explained

When it was announced that longtime Marvel writer Brian Michael Bendis was not only making the jump to DC Comics but that he was also taking over both Superman and Action Comics following a six-issue Man of Steel weekly miniseries, some fans expressed concern over whether the writer would effectively “undo” much of what’s made the post-Rebirth Superman so great — namely, his relationship with Lois Lane and their son, Jon. However, Bendis has little doubt that he’ll prove those skeptics wrong.
During an interview with CBR, Bendis was asked how worried fans should be about Man of Steel solicitations teasing a big mystery involving Lois and Jon, and Bendis was quick to reassure fans that, while something is indeed in store for Clark’s wife and son, it’s nothing readers would likely perceive as disrespectful to the characters.RELATED: Bendis Sheds Light on Superman’s New Foe: Rogol Zaar
“I get it,” Bendis said. “What I’m looking forward to is all good fans of Superman, being good people top of bottom, that I will accept, graciously, all of the apologies I’m getting in a few months,” he jokingly added. “People will see how much I love Lois and Jon. It’s OK — I get it. It’s part of the game. By the way, we are messing with you, as well — something’s happened with Jon and Lois. That’s not baloney. There’s something going on. But the worry that people have that we don’t love these characters, or that we’re going to do something to them, that I can only prove with time. And I will prove it.”
“For people who know their history, they know the original Man of Steel miniseries was as hardcore of a reboot as we’ve ever had,” Bendis continued. “That was throwing everything out and starting over again. So when they hear Man of Steel, older fans go, ‘What? Huh?’ No, no, no — it’s a celebration. There are a lot of secrets in our story, and we’re not telling you what’s going on with Jon and Lois right now. With that comes a little bit of trepidation — some people get excited, some people get nervous. That is kind of our job, to get people excited and nervous. I’ll take my hits where they come with that, but people will see in about a year’s time, when the story’s really unfolding, the deep love and affection we have for this family.”RELATED: Snyder Offers Early Mini-Review of Bendis & Reis’ Man of Steel #1Man of Steel #1, by Brian Michael Bendis, Joe Prado and Ivan Reis, is scheduled for release on May 30 from DC Comics.
The post Bendis Predicts Worried Superman Fans Will End Up ‘Apologizing’ to Him appeared first on CBR.

It’s nearly here: After more than six months of anticipation, Brian Michael Bendis’ full-length Superman writing debut arrives next Wednesday with DC’s Man of Steel #1, illustrated by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado. Sure, fans have seen glimpses of Bendis’ take on Superman in the Action Comics #1000 and DC Nation #0 short stories, but the six-issue weekly Man of Steel miniseries — each chapter illustrated by a different high-profile art team — will be the true indicator of what the longtime Marvel vet has planned now that DC is his exclusive creative home.
Superman fans have many reasons to be, as Bendis himself puts it, “excited and nervous.” After all, not only is Bendis one of the most popular and acclaimed superhero writers of the modern era, he’s also known for shaking up status quos in major ways, as the man who disassembled the Avengers, outed Daredevil’s secret identity, killed off (a) Peter Parker and brought the original five X-Men from the Silver Age into the present.RELATED: Bendis’ Final Invincible Iron Man Ending, Explained
Bendis is taking over both Action Comics (with issue #1001, illustrated by Pat Gleason) and Superman (with a new #1, illustrated by Reis and Prado) in July, and it comes at a time when the most recent runs were the most beloved those books have been in years. While Bendis has made it clear he’s not approaching it in the same way as “Avengers: Disassembled,” upcoming Man of Steel solicitation text has fans worried about the fate of Lois Lane and her and Clark Kent’s son, Jon Kent. (July’s Man of Steel #6 is ominously teased with the words, “The fate of Lois Lane and Jon Kent is revealed!”)
Yet while it may indeed be healthy to fret, Bendis makes it clear to CBR that he’s a fan of Superman’s relatively recent status as a family man, expressing his “deep love and affection” for the entire Super-family. In an in-depth chat with CBR on Man of Steel and his transition to DC after 18 years at Marvel, Bendis (whose final Marvel comic, Invincible Iron Man #600, was released this week) also discussed the distinction between writing Superman as a character and not an icon, working with artists like Reis for the first time, introducing new villains and supporting players and the timely importance of the Daily Planet and its staff. Most importantly, Bendis makes the case for why Superman — despite being the first American comic book superhero — is very relevant today, as the hope he represents is needed more than ever in this “weird and different” current era.Man of Steel #1 cover by Ivan Reis and Joe PradoCBR: Brian, let’s start with something I’ve been curious about for a while — for you, as someone who has written so many famous superhero characters, but are writing Superman for the first time, what did it take for you to get the voice of the character “right”? More than any superhero, Superman exists as much as an idea and an icon as he does an actual character. How did you find your way to writing Superman authentically?Brian Michael Bendis: Because I’m not writing the icon on any level, whatsoever. I’m writing the character. And that was one of the great moments I had in the DC office when I first came there. I was sitting there talking about the characters, and I was talking about Clark, and Diana, and Bruce, and [DC Group Editor] Brian Cunningham slammed his fist on the table and goes,”You’re doing it right!” I go, “Why?” “You’re talking about them as people, not icons! You’ve never called him anything other than Clark!” Yeah, he’s a dude. The icon’s what’s been thrust upon him. That takes care of itself. He just shows up and he’s an icon. To write the honest person is what you want to do. That’s what I’ve been doing.
Personally, for those who have been reading my work for a while, I realized that as I was writing Spider-Man, I was tapping into the nervous energy of Spider-Man, of which I had in my life. That was part of the element of why I connected to the character so much, is that his point of view in the world and his energy in the world, was, in a way, similar to mine. Whereas as I’ve gotten older, and you settle down and get a little more zen and know your place in the world a little bit and you don’t have to be such a gerbil, that energy is Superman. Superman doesn’t pace around. I’ve never experienced that before in my life, so having just gotten to that place in my life, and then now I’m writing a character that does that — it’s a very unique thing, but that’s how I’m writing him.Also, knowing how big of a part of your life being a parent is…
Absolutely.… and now that Superman is currently a parent, did that really help you connect to the character?
I’ve been a parent for a third of my life. It’s consumed every single second of my day, and I still, surprisingly, have not written a lot of families. This was kind of handed to me, and I got so excited about it. Not only am I a dad, but. I’m a unique dad. I know every dad’s kind of unique, but like, I don’t have a job. I don’t go to work. I’m home in my Superman pajamas typing all day. I’m a different kind of situation. I’m either at home in the basement or I’m on stage — it’s weird. Writing that, I connect to that. My kid’s know that we have a weird house, and we enjoy it. That’s what the Superman family does. We’re not normal.Man of Steel #1 interior art by Ivan Reis and Joe PradoAnother thing I’ve wanted to ask you about for a while — for someone who was working in the Marvel Universe as long as you did, stepping into the DC Universe, they must have some similarities, but —
Not many. I gotta tell you.
I’m six months deep into it now. As a co-author, I can tell you, DC the company does everything differently than Marvel does, including pay vouchers, to produce the same, final product. As a craft junkie, I’m obsessed with this. I love it. And there are some things that Marvel did that were a little better, and some things DC does a little better. It’s not a critique or a criticism, it’s just, they do things differently. How they all relate to each other is different. And I’m fascinated by it.
From that, all the way to the energy of the shared universe — working on the Marvel shared universe is completely different than working in the shared universe at DC, and you’ll have to ask me a year from now how, because I can’t even wrap my head around what’s different. I was thinking, if I was writing the Star Wars universe or the Westworld universe, it would feel as different to me, I guess. The story and the characters demand a different type of different energy and a different type of mindset from me, and that is fascinating.Well, let’s circle back in a year and get more into it.
It’s cool, because I’m actively working on the sequel to Words for Pictures, and I’m right now in the middle of the most existential, trying to figure out the craft of this.

The newest entry in the Marvel Manga Realization figurine line has been revealed, and it’s one heck of a doozey. Wolverine is the latest Marvel character to be envisioned as a samurai warrior from Feudal Japan. News of the Tamashii Nations’ Muho Mono Wolverine figure was first revealed as part of Tamashii Comic-Con.RELATED: Marvel Just Quietly Announced Wolverine’s New Series
The first thing to notice about the Wolverine figure is the lack of one defining samurai trait: a sword. That’s because, being Wolverine, he doesn’t need one. Instead, he has six very small swords on him at all times. The character’s iconic retractable Adamantium blades have been reimagined here as an arm-mounted device that looks to be capable of retracting and revealing the blades when necessary.

Wolverine joins a growing line of characters who have received a similar samurai reinterpretation. Spider-Man, Captain America and Iron Man have all already been turned into wandering ronin, each bearing their own special abilities that align with their Marvel counterparts. The Spider-Man figure, for example, comes with a grappling hook to fill in as low-tech spider webbing. The Iron Man figure comes with a jetpack that almost certainly does not meet safety standards.RELATED: Boba Fett Movie in the Works with Logan’s James Mangold
Muho Mono Wolverine was just one of several Marvel-themed figures to be revealed at Tamashii Comic-Con. Tamashii Nations also announced a line of figures based on the recent Avengers: Infinity War film.

The post Valiant Entertainment August 2018 Solicitations appeared first on CBR.

In issue #2 of the 2014 event prologue anthology series Edge of Spider-Verse, writer Jason Latour, artist Robbi Rodriguez and colorist Rico Renzi gave readers an exciting new take on the Marvel Universe and one of its flagship characters. The story took readers to Earth-65 and introduced them to that world’s Spider-Woman, Gwen Stacy — Peter Parker’s first love, who died decades ago in Marvel’s mainline continuity. Gwen’s costume and her world’s similar yet strikingly different take on the Marvel Universe made her an instant fan favorite. So when the Spider-Verse event wrapped in 2015, the Spider-Woman of Earth-65 graduated to her own ongoing series, Spider-Gwen.
Over the course of her series Gwen has battled new takes on classic Marvel foes like her world’s Kingpin (aka Matt Murdock); teamed up with new versions of iconic Marvel heroes like Samantha Wilson, the Captain America of her world; and battled the petty larceny of the Bodega Bandit. She’s also tried to maintain relationships with friends and family like her police captain father, George Stacy, and her bandmates in the Mary Janes.RELATED: Latour & Rodriguez’s Spider-Gwen Run Ends in July
Latour, Rodriguez and Renzi have been chronicling Spider-Gwen’s adventures since the book’s launch, but their tenure on the title is coming to an end. In July’s Spider-Gwen #34 the three creators will bring their run on a book to a close. So CBR spoke with Latour and Rodriguez about handing off their creation to a new creative team, the series’ most recent arc where their title character teamed with her interdimensional counterpart in a reality similar to the main Marvel Universe, and their favorite moments and characters from their run.Spider-Gwen #34 cove by Robbi RodriguezCBR: So Jason and Robbi, the big news is that your run on Spider-Gwen will end this summer with July’s issue #34. How does that feel? And were you guys able to give this chapter of Gwen’s story the end you envisioned?Jason Latour: I really don’t know how it feels yet. But I do think it’s time. Again, the book wasn’t cancelled. But we were always aware that there’s always a shelf life, or at least a limit to people’s attention as far as our iteration of this character is concerned. There are a ton of stories left in this world we built — but I personally didn’t want to push it to a point where we ever phoned it in. Whatever people feel about what we’ve done — it’s hard to deny we that we’ve been totally committed to this story. And that really means something to us.
So kind of from the jump I started thinking about an ending, really just sort of hoping we’d get there. And once things stabilized and we’d easily survived the attrition that all books go through — when we knew we firmly had a few years of rope — it was then we firmly decided to work towards ending it the way we wanted. I mean almost no one gets that chance in the modern market. So that meant we had to take it.
I’m just grateful Marvel worked with us to get there. Hopefully it’s an ending that feels both challenging and satisfying. I don’t think it’s going to be something you expect at all.Robbi Rodriguez: It’s highly unusual to reach an ending to a story that we had planned out about two years ago. So that’s pretty amazing, especially for a mainstream comic.
I wonder where the time went because it feels we were just talking about this yesterday. At the same time, we’re ready to let our baby girl go and see what else she does in the world. She’s done so much under our watch that we can only imagine what she can do out in the world with other people taking over the reins.In Spider-Gwen #31 you wrapped then penultimate story of your run where you introduced your Venom-bonded Gwen, aka Gwenom, to a Gwen that very much resembles her counterpart from the 616 universe. What’s it like bouncing the Gwen you’ve been writing off of this Gwen?Latour: Well, I’m certainly not casting any aspersions at Conway or Lee or whoever — their story was about Spider-Man and no one can deny the success of it. And you can judge for yourself how you feel about Gwen in it or why it is the way it is. But to me, if you read the Marvel handbook entry for Gwen Stacy it sounds like someone is giving her eulogy by talking about how great her boyfriend is.
So it just felt like having these two characters meet at a point when they were both at their lowest would mean something very real to them both. This series has always been about the multiverse and alternate realities. It’s the only reason Spider-Gwen exists. If you think about a premise where there are infinite numbers of the same person, it just highlights how small everything truly is — or maybe how much even a grain of individuality does matter.Spider-Gwen #32 interior art by Robbi Rodriguez & Rico RenziRobbi, that story with Gwen and her counterpart took place on Earth-617, which was very similar to the main Marvel Universe Earth. So it looked a lot like the classic Spider-Man comics Gwen originally appeared in. What was it like bringing to life this story and this world?Rodriguez: It was surreal and made me realize how good a draftsman John Romita Sr. is. Because it’s so difficult to ape that style. As an artist, you can take shortcuts, but when you study the work of somebody like John Romita, you realize all the shorthands are so far ahead of you.
Once we got the kinks worked out it was so cool and surreal to see the work that went into the classic Gwen that everyone else knows. It really showed that our Gwen Stacy is not the one everyone knows. They’re two distinct characters. Whatever they do with Gwen, readers know it’s not just a rehash of another character.Thematically it felt like this story, and really the series as a whole, has been about looking at the potential of Gwen as a character and the life she could have and did lead — which is interesting because over the years she’s become more famous for her death than her life. Is that what you’re aiming for with this arc and the book as a whole?Latour: That’s certainly part of it. There’s a million versions of Peter Parker who got to have all kinds of lives and stories (well except ours on Earth-65), so why not a few Gwen Stacys?Rodriguez: I wasn’t a huge superhero comic fan growing up. I knew Gwen Stacy more from the multimedia she appeared in. In those stories she always came off as a prop to me, for this superhero’s journey.
So one of the biggest things for me when we first jumped on this project was I wanted to make her a full-fledged character. Jason and I both wanted to do that and I’m glad we accomplished that goal. So many readers, both new and old, are attached to and feel something for this character. We’ve had so many people tells us that Spider-Gwen was the first ever comic they picked up. That’s super humbling. It touches the world to us, but it’s so maddening that we were able to reach that far by telling the story we wanted to tell. It’s surreal and cool to see how much it connected with other people.One of the elements you’ll be tackling in these last few issues is Gwen’s enmity with the Kingpin of Crime of her world, Matt Murdock. He seems to be her archenemy, but I have to wonder, with some of the choices Gwen has made recently and as a whole, is she her own worst enemy?Latour: Yeah, I think a lot of people are their own worst enemy. That’s probably what Gwen and Matt have most in common. And their conflict had a lot to do with Matt seeking to prove he’s not the only one who is broken.

Stan Lee is already the king of movie cameos, but now he’s hungry for more. The Marvel Comics legend has announced his interest in running the world.
Now fully in command of his Twitter account, the 95-year-old writer and editor asked his 3.15 million followers who would vote for him for the imaginary office of president of the world. In response, the message has received more than 17,000 likes and 108,000 retweets. That may not be enough to get Lee a majority vote, considering the global population of more than 7 billion, but it’s a start.

The United States has a President, but I want to be the President of the world. Who will vote for me?
— stan lee (@TheRealStanLee) May 23, 2018
This tweet comes just 10 days after Lee’s triumphant return to the public eye. After months of speculation and concern regarding Lee’s whereabouts and accusations of elder abuse, the comics icon has been posting videos, interacting with fans, and praising Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. He’s also expressed that his Facebook has been hacked, and has even asked Mark Zuckerberg for help. Above all, though, he’s been welcomed and celebrated by his fans.RELATED: Stan Lee Thanks Fans in His First Ever Twitter Video
Lee is a co-creator of classic superheroes such as Spider-Man, the Avengers, Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Black Panther and the X-Men. In more recent decades he’s famed for his cameos in Marvel films and television series.

Hit-Girl‘s on a mission, courtesy of Jeff Lemire and Eduardo Risso, and it’s taking her north of the border to Canada. Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. have turned over the keys to Mindy McCready’s comic book adventures to new creators, and for his part, the writer couldn’t be more thrilled.
“The opening two pages of Jeff and Eduardo’s [Hit-Girl story] is just beautiful,” Millar told CBR in a recent interview. “Hit-Girl catching snowdrops on her tongue and then turning the pages to see she’s caught in a Canadian bear-trap and just blown a guy’s head off.

“Marvel is a powerhouse in the entertainment industry and one of the most recognized brand names in the world,” Melbourne Stadiums Limited CEO Michael Green said in a statement. “It is a brand dedicated to audience experiences, which firmly aligns with our vision to create incredible experiences for fans. This partnership will allow us to take the stadium atmosphere to the next level and create memorable experiences for a vast array of audiences and we look forward to delivering a truly game-changing experience.”RELATED: Comcast Announces It’s Prepared to Outbid Disney For Key Fox Assets
Before it became Etihad Stadium in 2009, when the United Arab Emirates airline purchased the naming rights, the 18-year-old Docklands Stadium was known as the Telstra Dome and Colonial Stadium.
“Australian fans are amongst the most passionate in the world and through our partnership with MSL, we hope to bring people together, and provide them with a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the Marvel brand,” Kylie Watson-Wheeler, senior vice president and managing director of The Walt Disney Company in Australia and New Zealand, said in a statement. “Marvel is known for epic storytelling with heart, action, humor and relatability. MSL’s Docklands Stadium has told its own compelling stories over time, via a vast array of sport and entertainment. It’s why this partnership is such a great fit.”

Thompson and Lonnie Nadler’s Cable run, which began with Cable #155, focused on an integral aspect of the character’s backstory that was rarely touched on in the comics — the techno-organic virus infecting Cable’s body.

The post Image Comics’ August 2018 Solicitations appeared first on CBR.

Storm was recently received a power boost in the pages of X-Men Gold #25, where she was reunited with Stormcaster, the enchanted Asgardian hammer that imbues her with abilities on par with Thor. And in August, readers will finally learn the truth about the otherworldly weapon.
The solicitation text for X-Men Gold #33, by writer Mark Guggenheim and artist Michele Bandini, promises the the full story about Stormcaster, created at the behest of Loki and presented to Storm in 1985’s Uncanny X-Men Annual #9. When she picked up the hammer, she was transformed into the goddess of thunder. However, when Storm realized she was being manipulated by Loki, she gave up Stormcaster.RELATED: Wedding Bells, Old Foes & A New Team: Guggenheim Talks X-Men Gold
Before Stormcaster reappeared last month in X-Men Gold #25, it hadn’t been seen since 2011’s X-Men: To Serve and Protect #3, when it was believed to have been destroyed. Storm was surprised by the hammer’s reappearance in X-Men Gold, which included hints that this version of Stormcaster is from another realm. That could allude to the Battleworld from the 2015 multiversal crossover Secret Wars, which had a Storm version of Thor appearing in the tie-in miniseries Thors. In the meantime, the upcoming issue of X-Men Gold promises to shed some light on Storm’s new weapon.
Here’s the solicitation text for X-Men Gold #33:

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains spoilers for The Flash #47, which is on sale now.
Five months after the official prelude in The Flash Annual #1, “Flash War” has finally arrived with The Flash #47 by writer Joshua Williamson, artist Howard Porter and colorist Hi-Fi — and things are looking… well, a little dicey for the fastest family in the DCU.
With Barry and Wally’s simmering ideological conflicts in the wake of “Perfect Storm” reaching a boiling point and the machinations of a previously unseen villain manipulating things from afar, there is trouble coming for Central City’s past and future.RELATED: Flash War Will Have ‘HUGE Repercussions’ for the Entire DC Universe
But never fear — we sat down with Williamson this week to get the inside scoop on the potential consequences of DC’s two Scarlet Speedsters coming to blows, and some hints as to what may come after.CBR: So we’ve talked about “Flash War” a few times before, but I feel like reading issue #47 really put a whole new spin on what I thought the story was going to be and, with that in mind, I really, really want to talk more about Hunter Zoloman here. Take me back to the beginning of your ideas for Zoom in this story.Joshua Williamson: Zoom is one of my Flash villains, “Blitz” is one of my favorite Flash comics of all time and to me — so, at the end of Flash: Rebirth [2009], there were always a couple of little things that bugged me. At the end of that series there’s a moment where Hunter is talking to Eobard and he’s like “oh, let me make you better.” And we never really knew where that was going and I was always so curious about that.
It was weird, this was really a bunch of mini pieces of ideas that I had that all came together. I was reading “Dastardly Death of the Rogues,” and the Judge is there — and both the Judge and Commander Cold say things that are kind of similar to what Hunter is always saying. And Commander Cold actually says to Barry in that story that, essentially, you have the power to go back in time and fix things and you just don’t, and that’s not good. And I was like “…this is what Hunter always used to tell Wally.” So I was looking at this again, I was like “oh man, the Judge is Hunter.” So then it became a game of figuring it out, how did this happen?
Hunter, in this story is just Hunter. He’s pre-Flashpoint Hunter Zolomon, he was grabbed by Eobard at the end of Flash: Rebirth, when Eobard escaped everything, he took Hunter with him to the future — and because they were in the timestream when everything changed, Hunter remembers everything. He knows what happened. And because he was in the future, he was able to study the Flash Family and studied what was coming, and realized that we need The Flash to be The Flash he always wanted him to be; The Flash needs to be the ultimate hero. He talks about that in his first appearance, like to be the ultimate hero you have to experience the ultimate tragedy, and he’s realizing what he can do to get the Flash where he needs him to be.
Hunter thinks we need to have a Flash who is The Best Flash and ever since then he’s been doing things to figure out how to make that happen, which is where we start off here. He’s like “oh, I know how to make this work. I know how to get where I need to go.” He’s been manipulating stuff in Flash books for a while now.
He’s taking advantage of the fact now that Wally is remembering these bits and pieces of pre-Flashpoint history. He’s taking advantage of Barry being Barry. Barry is absolutely the type to go back and make a change, right? He’s done that. We know that. Barry would always do this thing that Wally wouldn’t do. Wally has told Hunter repeatedly that he’ll never go back and manipulate time. But Barry has done that thing.
There’s a really interesting dynamic there. Hunter and Barry are almost on the same page in certain things — so how does that clash with Wally?

Now might not be an especially smart time to go looking for the Immortal Hulk, but tell that to Walter Langkowski, otherwise known as Sasquatch. According to the synopsis for Immortal Hulk #4, Walter will go looking for his fellow gamma-afflicted acquaintance and die for his ambitions.
This likely won’t come as a surprise to anyone who kept up with the events of Avengers: No Surrender, which saw the big green guy rise from the dead, tear through his former Avenger allies and be dubbed immortal for his efforts. Al Ewing and Joe Bennett’s Immortal Hulk series looks to explore the fallout of Hulk’s return, and who better to talk some sense into into the green giant than someone so closely matched? Still, it sounds like things don’t go Walter’s way.RELATED: Before He Was Immortal: The Many Incarnations of the Hulk
An early preview for Immortal Hulk #1 sees Bruce on the run, not unlike the 1978 TV series The Incredible Hulk. According to an interview with CBR’s Dave Richards, Ewing said the resemblance is intentional. Bruce is in hiding. He doesn’t want to be found. The series will delve deeper into the hero’s psyche and why he has gone the isolative route, but people in hiding generally want to stay hidden. The arrival of Sasquatch can’t be a welcomed one for Bruce. It might be a fitting one, though, as Sasquatch is, in a sense, a mirror version of the Hulk.

Created by Chris Claremont and John Byrne, Walter Langkowski first appeared in X-Men #120 in 1979. Walter was a student at Pennsylvania State University for a short time, where he met Bruce Banner. Walter’s interactions with Bruce piqued his interest in gamma radiation studies. After Bruce became the Hulk, Walter became fixated on the transformation and eventually conducted a series of experiments on his own, thus turning himself into the Sasquatch. Sasquatch eventually helped form Alpha Flight, the superhero group in charge of maintaining peace in Canada.Immortal Hulk #1 is slated to release on June 6.

X-Men favorite Storm is getting a new costume as she officially joins the lineup of heroes in Marvel’s X-Men Red #7.
With Jean Grey returned to the land of the living and devoted to a mission of world peace, she’s recruited the likes of Nightcrawler and Namor the Sub-Mariner to take on Cassandra Nova. However, there are a few more surprises coming later this year. X-Men Red #4 debuted matching costumes to help protect the team from the threat of nanite Sentinels, and now it appears as if Ororo Munroe will adopt new threads as well.RELATED: Tom Taylor Explains Why Jean Grey Sets Out to Change the World in X-Men Red
Written by Tom Taylor and illustrated by Carmen Carnero, X-Men Red #7 sports a cover by Jenny Frison that debuts Storms new costume. It’s designed by artist Mahmud Asrar, who showcased hernew look on Twitter. Elsewhere, Taylor himself announced that Storm is officially joining the team with the August issue.

This collection includes the four-issue series along with an extended gallery section of never-before-seen layouts and pencils by Wrightson, all scanned from the original art. Additional art is supplied in the final chapter by Kelley Jones (at Wrightson’s request), who stepped in to complete the series upon the comic book legend’s untimely passing.

Midway’s Joust
Luther Bell Hendricks V (d) • Martin Abel (a) • Denis Martynets (c)
Brave knights take up their lances, tighten their saddles, and mount their birds. Who can defeat the most foes, capture the most eggs, and truly gain the glory of being the world’s best at Midway’s Joust?
Midway’s Joust brings the classic video arcade game to the tabletop in an action-packed, strategy board game. Requiring players to manage the speed and altitude of their knight, Midway’s Joust features a unique momentum system that has players playing cards that immediately move their knight, but repeat effects for turns to come. Act quickly, but think ahead, because in the game of Midway’s Joust, speed can be your greatest ally—or biggest foe.
