Marvel is excited to announce an all-new era for the God of Thunder in brand new series, THOR, written by Jason Aaron (Thor: God of Thunder, Original Sin) complimented with art from Russell Dauterman (Cyclops).
This October, Marvel Comics evolves once again in one of the most shocking and exciting changes ever to shake one of Marvel’s “big three” – Captain American, Iron Man and Thor – Marvel Comics will be introducing an all-new THOR, GOD OF THUNDER. No longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, a brand new female hero will emerge will who will be worthy of the name THOR. Who is she? Where did she come from and what is her connection to Asgard and the Marvel Universe?
“The inscription on Thor’s hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it’s time to update that inscription,” says Marvel editor Wil Moss. “The new Thor continues Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute - she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!”
More Thor stuff!

Black Widow Comics Animated by me
There’s something so perfect about this.
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?
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.
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!)
And ending the media catch-up with comics, here’s what’s been on my overall pull list for the last few months. All asterisked bullets are comics I highly recommend, but everything on the list is good.
So, what’re you pulling these days?
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.
1) Comics. 2) Food. 3) A bit of artwork from Chew’s Rob Guillory!

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