Learn To Crawl This May In Amazing Spider-Man # 1.1

Amazing_Spider_Man_1.1_Cover

This May, following the debut of the highly anticipated return of Peter Parker in Amazing Spider-Man #1, experience his early days as Spider-Man like you’ve never seen before in Learning to Crawl, a new 5-issue series beginning in Amazing Spider-Man #1.1! New York Times Bestselling writer Dan Slott (Superior Spider-Man, Silver Surfer) and Eisner Award-Winning Artist Ramón Pérez (Wolverine and the X-Men, Tale of Sand) craft an all-new spin on the earliest days of the webbed wonder that have bitter consequences to this very day!

From that fateful night he lost his Uncle Ben, a new life began. But there is more to the story of how Peter Parker became the Amazing Spider-Man.

“We all love a good ‘Year One’ story,” says Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “But this is so much MORE! Not only does this address Spider-Man’s past, but it sets up a new villain that will be a huge part of Dan Slott’s AMAZING SPIDER-MAN plans moving forward.”

We all know how Peter Parker learned responsibility, but this series tells the story of how Spider-Man became the super hero we all know and love!  Set within the first 60 days of his webslinging career, Learning to Crawl is an all-new tale set parallel to the character’s first appearance in 1962’s Amazing Fantasy #15 and 1963’s Amazing Spider-Man #1 – #3 that will blaze new trails for upcoming Amazing Spider-Man story arcs in Dan Slott’s new series!

“It’s one thing to know that with great power comes great responsibility, but what do you do with it?” says series writer Dan Slott, in an interview with Marvel.com.

Fans eagerly awaiting Learning to Crawl can get their first taste early with a special 8-page lead-in story from Slott & Pérez in the back of the highly anticipated Amazing Spider-Man #1 later this month!

Now is your chance to experience the story you never knew about the story you know by heart! How did Peter Parker rise to the occasion to become the greatest hero the world has ever seen? And who is the mysterious new villain Clash? All will be answered when the exciting Amazing Spider-Man #1.1 – the first chapter of Learning to Crawl – swings into comic shops on May 7, 2014!

Batman’s Sidekick Leaves The Cave For ‘Grayson’ Comic

Dick Grayson is trading his superhero suit for secret-agent cool. Batman’s former sidekick embarks on a new life as an undercover superspy in the comic book Grayson, an action-adventure series premiering July 2, 2014 from DC Comics. It’s written by Tim Seeley (Revival) and Tom King, a former CIA counterterrorism operations officer.

After a career of being overshadowed by his cape-and-cowled father figure, this is a chance for Grayson “to take off the mask and step out on his own in a world where he’s not simply being another hero like the hero he grew up with,” King says.

A character who first appeared in 1940, Grayson was the original Robin to Bruce Wayne’s Dark Knight. He went solo as Nightwing in the 1980s and also served as Batman for a time, when Wayne was thought dead.

Grayson’s new employer is the international spy agency Spyral, an organization created by writer Grant Morrison for his Batman, Incorporated series. King sees it as representative of today’s intelligence community: They’re the people who stop bad guys from doing bad things, yet to do that, they employ questionable tactics such as mind erosion.

He is getting a wardrobe makeover, courtesy of Grayson artist Mikel Janin: Gone is Grayson’s mask, and his new outfit reflects the blue-and-black color scheme of his Nightwing togs and features a “G” on his chest, reminiscent of the old “R” from his Robin days.

With a total of 224 familiar comic book characters, it’s the most on a single issue cover ever, officially setting the Guinness World Records title.

Deadpool Editor, Jordan White, reflected on the recognition by Guinness World Records and said, “When artist Scott Koblish proposed this cover layout to me, I thought he was crazy…but it’s the kind of crazy you have to respect. I think there’s no better testament to both his insanity and the amazing cover he and colorist Val Staples produced than an officially recognized world record.”

The Merc with a Mouth is now the Merc in Matrimony in the pages of the super-sized Deadpool #27 – from current Deadpool writers Gerry Duggan & Brian Posehn along with an epic assortment of nine previous Deadpool writers.

A day many never dreamed would come has finally arrived – and it’s going to be anything but traditional. For starters, Deadpool’s bride Shiklah is an ancient and royal succubus. The ceremony is going to be one for the ages!

Batman Eternal Issue 1 Arrives On April 9, 2014

photo

The new weekly comic series Batman Eternal begins in April from DC Comics!

Written by Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, John Layman, Ray Fawkes and Tim Seeley, with art by Jason Fabok, Dustin Nguyen and others.

Batman Eternal will “set the stage for a new Gotham and new characters and a new set of stories that will take Batman into 2015,” Scott Snyder told USA Today. “We want this to be a place where you get to tell a story about anything you want in Gotham, so long as we’re also moving this big story forward in the background. You’ll see bombastic arcs as well but there’ll be plenty of room for Ray to explore some of the darker, more mystical aspects of Gotham that he loves or Tim to explore some of the crime we haven’t seen before.”

“It is 52 issues fully defining Gotham City,” said Ray Fawkes in an interview with PREVIEWSworld. “We’re going to see every member of the Bat Family, every villain you can think of. This is going to be the book that shows readers where it’s at in every nook and cranny of Gotham City. It’s my role, as you might expect, to take people on a supernatural ride through the underpart of the city.”

PREVIEWSworld asked artist Jason Fabok what it’s like to draw a weekly comic series with such a massive cast of Gotham City characters?

“Personally, it’s really been no different from working on a monthly title artistically.  I’ve been working far enough in advance in order to have three issues done for the first month, but each book is done in a month,” explained Fabok. “The difference is that I’m able to work with such a great cast of writers, all pitching cool details for character design, plot and world building.”

“As far as drawing a massive cast of characters, fans should know that we are going to be focusing on all your favorites. New characters, classic ones, and old ones returning, we have a little bit for everyone. I’m really excited to see the reaction to all of the twists and turns that will take place during the course of the series and the fan reaction as well. This book is going to be an awesome, fun, epic ride, and readers have no clue what’s in store for Batman and the rest of the cast.”

Batman Eternal issue 1 will hit stands on April 9, 2014.

Poker-Playing Marvel Superheroes: The Role That Poker Plays In Character Development

798926__marvel-superheroes-playing-poker_p

Every Marvel hero in existence has an ever-evolving character development, and as years pass writers continue to add depth to already well-rounded characters. Many real world issues have been reflected in the conceptualization of these Marvel superheroes. Even current pop culture staples have also made their way to comic storylines. Poker, in particular, has crept into the comic pages more than once. Here are just a few superheroes that have had poker integrated into their stories.

The Thing from Fantastic 4 

Formerly known as Benjamin Grimm, he along with the Avengers butler Edwin Jarvis have hosted a string of floating superhero poker games. Other than the Avengers, the characters that made appearances include Wolverine, Human Torch, Spider-Man, Nick Fury, Beast, and many others as dictated by the Marvel Universe. According to Comic Vine, Marvel fans debated over who would be the best poker player, The Thing or Gambit, which is the next superhero on the list.

Gambit from X-Men 

The superhero is equipped with a Bo staff and explosive playing cards, so it’s safe to say that he know s a thing or two about card games such as Texas Hold ‘Em. In that same forum about Marvel’s best poker player, those who said Gambit reasoned with the fact his kinetic energy allows him to be resistant to telepaths. Others wouldn’t stand a chance in trying to call his bluff.

Tony Stark or Iron Man 

When Iron Man isn’t soaring in the air in his amazingly advanced robotic suit, he is the pretentious and alarmingly wealthy Tony Stark that lives by an extravagant lifestyle. It’s really no surprise that he, out of all Marvel superheroes, could be caught sitting with the high rollers in a Las Vegas Casino or being dealt in alongside, Daniel Negreanu or the seasoned partypoker.com blogger and queen of poker, Kara Scott. Also, being the playboy that he is, he’ll probably be more interested in winning Kara over, than actually winning the pot.

Wolverine from X-Men 

Out of all the Marvel superheroes, Wolverine is the only one that actually played alongside a real poker professional, Daniel Negreanu. Granted, it was a cameo in the X-Men: Origins movie, but that could still count as Wolverine’s ability to play at a professional level, right?

Can you think of any more potential great poker players from the Marvel franchise?

My Office

Superman needs his Fortress of Solitude and Batman has the Bat Cave. We all need a favorite space to relax, reflect, write, read a book, watch a movie or showcase a favorite collectible or souvenir.

Maybe it’s a game room, library or secret space hidden by a moveable bookcase that leads to a man cave.

I’ve always been curious what curios J.J. Abrams keeps close by, what books fill Stephen King’s shelves, what collectibles does Patton Oswald possess, what artwork lines Jim Lee’s walls, how many toys fill John Lasseter’s Pixar office and what movie memorabilia does Steven Spielberg showcase? Perhaps someday I will find out!

The answers would reflect the owner’s personality, interests, accomplishments, etc. Equally as fascinating to me would be how the items were displayed.

So, I thought I would let you into my world and show you my office and give you the nickel tour.

I wanted my Southern California office to reflect my varied interests and showcase some of my favorite things.

I have collected Stephen King books since 1983. He’s my favorite author and I’m also a fan of his son, Joe Hill. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting both authors on numerous occasions and they are wonderful talented friendly people. The bottom shelf of my bookcase is filled with oversized art books featuring the work of Walt Disney, Jack Kirby, Jim Lee, Alex Ross, Todd McFarlane, Charles Schultz and Tim Burton.

IMG_9958 IMG_9959  IMG_9966

My Funko Pop! Batman collection guards my graphic novels. Batman is my all-time favorite comic book character as reflected in the art, toys and books in my work space.

IMG_9962

Some of my prized collectibles are an original Batman ink commission by Brazilian artist, Rafael Grampa (I also have his Batman Black & White statue), a signed Adam West Batman photo, a signed Drew Struzan Stephen King Dark Tower print and a series of Jock letterpress Batman prints signed by the artist.

A fun 3D light up replica of Iron Man’s mask appears to be bursting through my wall.

I also collect posters, many of which are from MONDO, a boutique art gallery based in Austin Texas. They release limited print runs of pop culture posters that are lovingly rendered by amazing artists. Some of my cherished prints are based on the Universal Monster movies by Francesco Francavilla, Star Wars by Tyler Stout and The Incredibles by Tom Whalen. Another favorite piece is my Batman Rogues Gallery print set by Olly Moss; With only a few simple brush strokes the UK artist cleverly captures the essence of the Joker, Poison Ivy and the Riddler.

IMG_9947 IMG_9955 IMG_9967 IMG_9971

The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller from 1986 is my favorite graphic novel so I had to pick up this statue of Batman vs. The Joker by Kotobukiya. I was a huge fan of both the original Batman TV show and the Batman Animated series so the 1966 Batmobile and the vinyl Animated Batman figure are prominently displayed.

Businessweek Cover Story: The Pow! Bang! Bam! Plan to Save Marvel, Starring B-List Heroes

BBW_Marvel_Cover_970x1292

Kevin Feige is one of the more shrewd and successful studio heads of his generation. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens today and is likely to do better at the box office than Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel’s first film about the patriotic superhero, which grossed $370 million.

He produced them both. And he’s considering a third. Feige’s films aren’t groundbreaking—they rely on epic showdowns at major landmarks, set to Carmina Burana-style angelic choruses, and the force of computer-generated graphics is strong within them. Still, they feel like a refreshment of the genre, so much so that instead of diminishing returns, Marvel’s sequels make progressively more money.

X-Men Legacy) and spotlights the hotly-anticipated seventeenth episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (“Turn, Turn, Turn”), premiering Tuesday, April 8th at 8|7c on the ABC Network. Coulson’s team comes face to face with the Clairvoyant and revelations that will change the series forever.

“As fans saw on Tuesday, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is exploding with excitement so this is the perfect time to celebrate,” said Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel TV. “We’ve partnered with Marvel’s most sought after artists creating an exclusive first look into what the rest of the season has to offer.”

Each poster released in this series will be available as limited edition high quality prints at http://www.marvelstore.com/ArtOfLevel7 with the first print of the series to go on sale Friday, April 4th at 1:00am PST. These individually numbered prints are strictly limited to 100 copies and once they’re sold out, they won’t be available again from Marvel.

“I’ve always wanted to create art for TV and the fact that it’s TV for Marvel, made it even more intriguing,” explained Mike Del Mundo when asked about working on The Art of Level 7. “It’s definitely a show with great action, suspense and a cast of different and interesting characters so there were a lot of elements to play with when coming up with ideas. I’ve been a fan of Coulson since I saw him in Marvel’s The Avengers, so being a part of his return was great, especially with an episode like this where all of the craziness happens in his world!”

Tune in on Tuesday, April 8th at 8/7c to catch a new episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “Turn, Turn, Turn,” on the ABC Network as the series airs with no repeats through to the shocking season finale.
