The “All-New Marvel NOW!” panel reveals

After several weeks of hinting and teasing, Marvel finally revealed the new titles and central storylines of its “All-New Marvel NOW!” initiative. We cover the announcements and how they relate to our earlier guesses in detail here and here, but for those of you simply looking for the titles of the new books, release dates, creative teams, and some cover and preview images, below is the list:

  • “The Trial of Jean Grey”: A six-part crossover between All-New X-Men and Guardians of the Galaxy with Brian Michael Bendis writing and Stuart Immonen and Sara Picchelli on art. Launches January 2014 with All-New X-Men #22.NOW and Guardians of the Galaxy #11.NOW [Anybody else find the “.NOW” issue numbering gimmick annoying?—ed.]

TrialofJeanGrey

  • All-New X-Factor: Fan-favorite writer Peter David teams up with Italian artist Carmine Di Giandomenico on a title that spins out of the events shown in issue #260 of the recently canceled X-Factor series. Polaris leads a team composed of Quicksilver, Gambit and two other members to be revealed as they try to balance the demands of superheroing with corporate interests. Launches January 2014.

  • Ghost Rider joins the Thunderbolts: The flaming skull-headed Spirit of Vengeance joins Marvel’s premiere team of reformed villains and anti-heroes in Feburary 2014’s Thunderbolts #20.NOW written by Charles Soule (Swamp Thing, Twenty Seven) with art by Carlo Barberi, an issue which is also being cross-marketed with the label “Thunderbolts #1.”

1381500721

  • Dr. Mindbubble to plague Captain America: A character that originally appeared seemingly as a throwaway background element in a 2011 issue of Uncanny X-Force makes his first real debut in February 2014’s Captain America #16.NOW by writer Rick Remender (Fear Agent, Uncanny X-Force) and artists Pascal Alixe and Nic Klein. Apparently, Dr. Mindbubble is a Super-Soldier from the 1960s (of course, one could argue that the post-Timely Comics Captain America is also a “Super-Soldier from the 1960s,” but you know what we mean). Cue the Sixties-inspired montage!

1381513916

  • Secret Avengers: No longer a secret is the fact that Secret Avengers will be getting renumbered and relaunched come March 2014, with Secret Avengers #12 and #13 co-writer Ales Kot (Change, Zero) and artist Michael Walsh scheduled to take control of the title’s reins from incumbents Nick Spencer and Butch Guice.

1381513930

  • Avengers World: Another new Avengers title, this time, it seems like a book that will focus on “big new challenges” according to co-writer Nick Spencer [Aren’t they all, though?—ed.] and feature an expanded cast (click on the image of Art Adams’ wraparound variant cover of Avengers World #1 below to play “name-that-character”). Avengers World #1, written by Jonathan Hickman and Nick Spencer with art by Stefano Caselli, hits stores January 2014.

Avengers-World-Art-Adams-Wraparound-Variant

  • Avengers Undercover: The survivors of Dennis Hopeless’ Avengers Arena find themselves infiltrating the Masters of Evil organization. Joining Hopeless on the premiere issue earmarked for a February 2014 release is artist Kev Walker.

1381513807

  • See the future of the Marvel Universe now (standard “alternate future” provisions apply): A new Avengers A.I. story arc from writer Sam Humphries (Our Love is Real, Higher Earth) and artist Andre Araujo will be set in the Marvel Universe 10 millenia (that’s 10,000 years to you kids who weren’t paying attention in school) into the future. Avengers A.I. #8.NOW is solicited for a March 2014 release.

1381513805

1381513918

  • Black Widow: Soldiers-and-spies comics specialist Nathan Edmondson (The Activity, Dancer, Who is Jake Ellis?) is set to pen a new ongoing series featuring the red-haired Russian super-spook. Accompanying him on this venture is artist Phil Noto.

1381513872

  • Iron Patriot: A new series from Ales Kot and Garry Brown, due out March 2014.

ironpatriotallnewmarvelnow

The newest bearer of the Ghost Rider curse is Robbie Reyes, a high school student from East L.A. The biggest twist on this version: series writer Smith says that the character’s conveyance of choice will be a car, and not a motorcycle. All-New Ghost Rider #1 drops on March 2014.

  • Silver Surfer: A new ongoing series by Dan Slott and Mike Allred. The initial story arc has the ex-Herald of Galactus adventuring with a human companion named Dawn Greenwood.

silversurferallnewmarvelnow

  • Elektra: Writer Zeb Wells and Shuster Award-winning artist Mike Del Mundo will be behind this new ongoing series featuring the Greek kunoichi. Editor Sana Amanat says that Del Mundo’s art includes things she’s “never seen before” and while the character’s classic costume will remain largely unchanged, she notes that Del Mundo will also be “covering up her butt a little bit.” Elektra #1 is solicited for March 2014.

elektra-1

  • Captain Marvel: The critically-acclaimed Captain Marvel series is getting relaunched with a new #1 on March 2014. Writer Kelly Sue DeConnick remains at the helm, and she’ll be joined by artist David Lopez.

  • “Goblin Nation”: A five-part story arc by Dan Slott and artist Giuseppe Camuncoli pitting the Doctor Octopus-possessed Spider-Man against (a seemingly new) Green Goblin. Lauches with January 2014’s Superior Spider-Man #27.NOW.

superiorspiderman27NOW

  • New Warriors: The latest incarnation of the 1990s superteam looks to be composed of Justice, the newest Nova (Sam Alexander), Speedball, Scarlet Spider, and Sun Girl, and what looks to be an Atlantean (perhaps the recently-revived New Warriors founding member Namorita or a younger relation), a younger version (maybe a clone?) of Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Gamora, and what we’re guessing is Spider-Man villain Alistair Smythe. The Chris Yost-written, Marcus To-illustrated New Warriors #1 hits stores February 2014.

Previously announced “All-New Marvel NOW!” titles launching next year that didn’t get individualized NYCC teaser campaigns are All-New Invaders (to launch January 2014) by writer James Robinson and artist Steve Pugh, Inhuman (to launch January 2014) by writer Matt Fraction and artist Joe Madureira, and She-Hulk (to launch January 2014) by writer Charles Soule and artist Javier Pulido.

Dark Horse NYCC Announcements

Dark Horse Comics had its fair share of big news and announcements coming out of the Javits Center. Detailed breakdowns and full press releases can be found here, here, and here. The gist of those announcements are below:

  • Juice Squeezers and Kid McAlister: Two new creator-owned titles by the Eisner Award-winning creator of Stray Bullets, David Lapham. Juice Squeezers is about “a covert group of tweens who form the main line of defense for the residents of Weeville against an army of giant bugs. The only ones who can fit into the cramped subterranean battlefield, the aptly named Juice Squeezers keep the endless swarm of bugs from overrunning the city.” Kid McAlister is “a western sci-fi tale… which follows a fifty-year-old cowboy trapped in the body of a twelve-year-old, as he returns home to Yuma, Arizona, after a long stint on the road. It’s not easy to stay hidden for long when you’re an eternally young ‘Electric Cowboy’ and the best darn bull rider on the circuit.” Neither title has an announced release date as of posting time.
  • Blackout and The White SuitsTwo new titles written by Frank Barbiere (Five Ghosts: The Haunting of Fabian Gray). Blackout finds “protagonist Scott Travers—who possesses the Blackout suit that allows him to ‘travel through [a parallel] dimension… [giving him the ability to seemingly] disappear or appear out of nowhere’—dealing with the repercussions of his previous adventures.” The White Suits is described by Barbiere as “a visually arresting action/crime comic” with “a lot of noir influence” which revolves around an organized crime gang from Cold War-era Russa—the eponymous “White Suits”—that “has resurfaced in the present day in New York City where they are slowly taking over criminal territory and slaughtering anyone in their way. Our two lead characters are people who’ve had their lives touched by the Suits and want revenge.” The White Suits will feature Troy Cypress on art duties. Neither title has an announced release date as of posting time.

  • EVE: True Stories and EVE: Source: A tie-in to the popular persistent-world MMORPG EVE Online, the four-part EVE: True Stories miniseries will feature a dramatized account of an actual player-driven in-game event described in the press release as “one of the greatest gaming stories of the last decade: the fall of the player alliance known as the Band of Brothers. In the early hours of February 5, 2009, one spy single-handedly destroyed the dominant Band of Brothers alliance and brought an end to the Great War, one of the larger and most significant player conflicts in the history of EVE Online.” The miniseries launches digitally on February 19, with subsequent issues following on March 5, March 19 and April 2, 2014. The EVE: True Stories hardcover collection is due out June 4, 2014. EVE: Source is an illustrated, hardcover sourcebook for the EVE Online and DUST 514 gaming universe and is set to go on sale on March 5, 2014.

EVETrueStories_EVESource_Teaser

  • Veil: A five-issue miniseries described by multiple Eisner Award winner Greg Rucka (Queen & Country, Lazarus) as “a very different kind of tale for me, very different in what I’m trying to accomplish, and working with Dark Horse, working with [artist Toni Fejzula], is a rare opportunity to try to bring this thing to life.” The first issue will be available in digital and print on March 5, 2014.

  • Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z: Based on the upcoming video game of the same title, the Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z digital comic will be available for free beginning this December from the Dark Horse Digital Store and through the Dark Horse Comics app (iTunes and Google Play) and will feature three stories from writers Tim Seeley and Josh Emmons, with art from Rafael Ortiz.

  • The Adventures of Nilson Groundthumper and HermyA new full-color hardcover scheduled for a March 19, 2014 release that will collect the adventures of Nilson Groundthumper, an early Stan Sakai creation that preceded his signature creation, the rabbit ronin Usagi Yojimbo (Usagi Yojimbo, in fact, started out as an idea for a supporting character for the Nilson Groundthumper comics).

  • Terminator: Enemy of my Enemy: A six-issue miniseries beginning in February 2014 reuniting the Firestorm creative team of writer Dan Jolley and artist Jamal Igle, with veteran inker Ray Snyder added for good measure. Set in 1985, a year after the events of the first Terminator film, the book will feature a new cast of main characters (i.e., no Kyle Reese or any other time-traveling members of the future Resistance).

  • Bad Blood: A five-issue miniseries written by the Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Ghost Road Blues Jonathan Maberry and illustrated by 2012 Russ Manning Promising Newcomer Award recipient Tyler Crook. According to Maberry, Bad Blood is about

… Trick, a teenage slacker on the losing side of a fight with cancer. When he’s attacked by a vampire, he figures it’s game over. Except that the chemo drugs in Trick’s blood poison the vampire. As punishment, the vampires begin slaughtering everyone Trick loves. So he goes hunting for the vamps to try to destroy them. His only superpower? The chemo drugs in his system are deadly to the undead. His only ally? A heroin-addicted Goth chick. Bad Blood brings the pain in a downbeat tale of heartbreak, loss, and courage.

Joe: Cobra, Stormwatch: Post Human Division) and illustrated by Rebekah Isaacs with covers by long time series artist Steve Morris, and Angel & Faith Season 10, also slated for a 30 issue run, written by Victor Gischler (Kiss Me, Satan!, Deadpool Corps) and illustrated by Will Conrad with covers by Scott Fischer.

Watch Image Comics’ “The Walking Dead 10th Anniversary” and “Robert Kirkman’s Skybound” panels from NYCC, complete and for free

Missed NYCC? Not to worry! TheWalkingDead.com‘s crew filmed “The Walking Dead 10th Anniversary” and “Robert Kirkman’s Skybound” panels from NYCC in their near-entirety, and we’ve embedded the videos below:

You’re welcome.

Kirkman had particularly good reason to be happy during NYCC, as last week’s The Walking Dead #115 recently racked up over 350,000 copies sold, making it the best-selling single issue of 2013 in the direct market by far, definitively outselling DC’s Justice League of America #1 (which moved an estimated 308,000 copies in the direct market in February) and doing it without the benefit of sales-goosing gimmicks like issue renumbering, or a heavily-marketed “event.”

IDW NYCC Announcements

During a Saturday morning panel, IDW revealed plans for five new Artist’s Editions for 2014:

  • Charles Schulz’ Peanuts: Artist’s Edition
  • Jack Kirby’s New Gods: Artist’s Edition: will include issues #2, 5, 6, 7, and 8 of the 1971 series along with bonus material.
  • The Steranko Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Artist’s Edition: will feature twelve stories taken from Marvel’s Strange Tales #151–162. Interior previews can be viewed here.
  • The Steranko Nick Fury & Captain America: Artist’s Edition: will feature the Nick Fury stories from Strange Tales #163–168 as well as issues #1, 3, and 5 of Marvel’s Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
  • Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen: Artifact Edition: Unlike the other announced titles, Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen: Artifact Edition will not include complete stories (hence the Artifact Edition designation), but will still include over 150 pages of scanned original art.

sterankoartistseditionsteaser

As described on the IDW site, an Artist’s Edition

… presents complete stories with each page scanned from the actual original art. While appearing to be in black & white, each page has been scanned in COLOR to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—for example, you are able to clearly see paste-overs, blue pencils in the art, editorial notes, art corrections. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.

IDW also announced that it will be producing illustrated hardcover prAll-New X-Factorose novel reissues of Donald E. Westlake’s Parker books. These titles will feature all-new art from Darwyn Cooke, in a style that will be quite distinct from the graphic design influenced-approach used in his Eisner and Harvey Award-winning graphic novel adaptations of Westlake’s works. The first book is set to be released in second quarter 2014.

IDW prez Chris Ryall also let slip during a panel that a second ongoing My Little Pony series, titled My Little Pony: Friends Forever, is due in 2014.

Additionally, IDW sent out a press release before the NYCC weekend declaring its plans to produce an ongoing Transformers/G.I. Joe title in 2014, bringing together Hasbro’s two most recognizable original “boys’ toys” brands from the 1980s in a single “permanent crossover” book. The series will be written and illustrated by Tom Scioli (Freedom Force, Gødland), with IDW Transformers and G.I. Joe line editor John Barber pitching in as a co-writer.

Warrior, Eclipse Comics Miracleman (a.k.a. Marvelman) material finally get a complete reissue; ALSO: new Miracleman stories by Gaiman and Buckingham
Miracleman #1 cover by Joe Quesada

Miracleman #1 cover by Joe Quesada

Via a news release issued over the NYCC weekend, Marvel stated that beginning January 2014, the company will begin publishing the original Warrior comics anthology magazine and Eclipse Comics runs of Miracleman (a.k.a. Marvelman) with Miracleman #1. Marvel will also be publishing new Miracleman stories by writer Neil Gaiman and artist Mark Buckingham, who worked on the final issues of the Eclipse Comics Miracleman title during the early 1990s.

The lengthy and complicated legal battle over the rights to the character and its original Marvelman name has passed into comics industry legend, with ownership being claimed and disputed at various times over the past five decades by UK comics publisher Alan Class, the late Marvelman creator Mick Anglo, Warrior editor Dez Skinn, writer Alan Moore (who penned the Marvelman stories featured in Warrior and would later give his stake in the character to fellow Brit writer Neil Gaiman), artist Garry Leach (who illustrated the Marvelman stories featured in Warrior), Alan Davis (who replaced Skinn as Warrior‘s editor), the now-defunct Eclipse Comics, writer Neil Gaiman, artist Mark Buckingham (who split Moore’s stake in the character with Gaiman), Image Comics co-founder Todd McFarlane (who claimed ownership of the Miracleman/Marvelman IP after buying the bankrupt Eclipse Comics’ assets in 1996).

In 2009, Marvel announced that it had purchased the rights to Marvelman and in 2010, published a collection of Mick Anglo’s original Marvelman stories in Marvelman Family’s Finest and Marvelman Classic, Vol. 1. The status of the Warrior Marvelman and Eclipse Comics Miracleman material remained mired in legal uncertainty however, given the many competing claims over their ownership. But with this announcement, it is clear that Marvel has asserted itself as the legally-recognized claimant with regards to their commercial disposition.

Archie says “Farewell, Betty and Veronica”

There were a lot of interesting things said and shown at the “Archie Comics: Zombies, Heroes, Cartoons, Movies and more!” and none of them, thankfully, had anything to do with the wacky/scary antics of embattled and controversial Archie Comics executive Nancy Silberkleit.

Writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Francesco Francavilla talked about the zombie-themed Afterlife with Archie (which was inspired by Francavilla’s variant cover for Life with Archie #23). There was also talk of December’s The Fox by Mark Waid and Dean Haspiel, to be published under Archie’s superhero imprint Red Circle Comics. But the biggest news coming out of the panel is perhaps the new “Farewell, Betty and Veronica” serial by Michael Uslan that will run in Betty and Veronica. News that the long-time friends and rivals for Archie Andrews’ affections will be replaced by two new characters and potential love interests was greeted by a collective gasp from the panel audience. Whether these changes will stick is open to question of course, but Archie Comics has shown a willingness to shake up the status quo in recent years and stand by their bold creative directions.

DC to launch weekly Batman series and other DC news from NYCC

While Marvel is doing its share flooding the market with a dozen Avengers titles, DC isn’t looking to be outdone with its announcement of a weekly Batman series, Batman: Eternal, set to launch in Spring 2014. There goes that obsession with the number 52 (as in “52 weeks in a year”) again. More and more, it’s beginning to feel like DC is being run by a numerologist. Oh, and Superboy is supposed to die in some event or other. Whatever.

FigureBomb.com‘s Nick Saunders reviewed Hasbro’s Transformers: Generations Metroplex (yes, we—by which we actually mean Nick—do toy reviews now, too): he liked it a lot.

We leave you now with this video of an NYCC cosplayer dressed as G.I. Joe‘s Flint proposing to his girlfriend (dressed as Scarlett):

What’s the over-and-under for the number of YouTube comments posted before someone pops in and says that he screwed it up by not getting her to dress up as Lady Jaye? (Or alternatively, his not dressing up as Snake-Eyes, or, if he’s sticking with the 1980s cartoon canon, Duke).
