Well that’s cool

This was the page that sold me on comics again. The brilliant show of the passage of time — both an ethereal slowness and split second reaction?Just perfect.

As far as current solo titles go, Fraction and Aja work wonders on Hawkeye. I’m not fully caught up on Daredevil, but Waid and Samnee are solid there, and DeConnick is brilliant with Captain Marvel.

Avengers Annual #01
This is Captain Handsome ordering you to rock and roll on that 45.

This is adorable

This is a good Annual, and you should read it, as well as admire the artwork and character design. It’s familiar but fresh.

You should buy Marvel Now What? #1 and read the story by me and John DeVore with the pretty artwork by Tania del Rio!

And this isn’t the best part of Sara Benincasa and John DeVore’s segment in the first issue of Marvel’s ‘Now What?’! (Spoiler: It’s the whole thing!)

Marvel’s C.B. Cebulski on Comics & Ramen

C.B. Cebulski may be the luckiest nerd on the planet. A recruiter for Marvel Comics, the 41-year-old travels the world scouting his well-trained eye for new comic talent. As a veteran writer and editor, Cebulski seeks out style and storytelling ability; his recruits have been responsible for titles like Young Avengers, Runaways and Marvel Fairytales. But Cebulski isn’t just on the lookout for great comics when he travels—he’s also the author of the popular Eataku Tumblr (a play on “eat” and “otaku,” the Japanese word for “obsessed”), which documents his gastronomic journeys across the globe. We caught the gregarious Cebulski during a rare day off in New York.

Do you see any connection between the food and comic worlds? They’re both creative, competitive industries, and they attract die-hard, opinionated fans. What else ties them together?

A lot of chefs are comic fans. I’ve talked to a few chefs about this, and the similarities are pretty remarkable: both chefs and comics are artistic types, maybe a bit of an outsider; they work in a very solitary job, very in your own head, and the creation aspect is the same. Whether they’re working with a pencil or a knife, the thought flows through their head and into their hands. Every chef can tell you a story about his or her food and sound just like an artist, only instead of X-Men, they’re talking about tamales.

Chiwetel Ejiofor as T’Challa/Black Panther

I’d be very pleased with this casting, if it ever comes to pass.

And, surprising absolutely no one, Clark and Bruce are my favorites here.

BABIES~

I can dig this. Maybe Peter and Barry are a little too wiry and Clark is a little too bulky.

So … the Marvel news …

Is anyone else excited? I don’t know what is planned for Thor 2: The Dark World, but Captain America 2: Winter Soldier was kind of a no-brainer after Captain America. Guardians of the Galaxy seems like it should be cool, even though I’m not too familiar with the series, but hell, a future galactic crime-fighting squad with an anthropomorphic raccoon … Iron Man 3 with Kingsley as Mandarian … perfect … oh, and Ant-Man. Finally. No set release date, but let’s hope that it’ll be out by late 2014 or early 2015 in time for The Avengers 2?

Now, if you’ll excuse me …

All of Stan Lee’s Marvel film cameos 

Did they not get him for X-Men: First Class?

Sadly, they didn’t get Stan for First Class. Something about the timing not working out? I don’t remember. But I’d say that the ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ cameo is probably THE BEST to date.
