Pascal Campion Joins Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The Art of Level 7

Marvel Television is proud to announce acclaimed animator and illustrator Pascal Campion (Iron Man, All-New Invaders) as the newest recruit for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Art of Level 7, a new initiative uniting top artists from around the world to celebrate the final six episodes of the series’ inaugural season(airing Tuesdays, 8|7c on the ABC Television Network).

As Hydra continues their war against the remaining Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Phil Coulson finds the enemy targeting him where it hurts the most – the woman he loves! In the latest episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Coulson is on a mission to save Audrey Nathan, the cellist who won his heart and whose life is threatened by the dangerous Marcus Daniels (AKA Blackout). But as Coulson faces one of the deadliest enemies from his past, a threat closer to home may be his undoing!

“The Only Light In The Darkness”, the nineteenth episode of the series, premieres on Tuesday, April 22nd, at 8|7c on the ABC network followed by brand new episodes each week until suspenseful season finale. 

“From the beginning of the series, Coulson fans have been curious about the Cellist, who we first learned about in Marvel’s The Avengers,” said Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel TV. “Working with an incredibly talented artist like Pascal Campion allowed us to capture the beauty and tragedy of their relationship in this new episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

Each poster released in this series will be available as limited edition high quality prints at http://www.marvelstore.com/ArtOfLevel7 with “The Only Light In The Darkness” scheduled to go on sale Friday, April 18th 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.

“Working with Marvel is a childhood dream come true. I’m thankful for the opportunity to partner with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” said Pascal Campion.

pc_site

MONDO announces “Mike Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo” a comics-themed show featuring artist Mike Mitchell’s iconic portraits of Marvel’s huge stable of heroes and villains, running from April 25th through May 17th. The characters of The Avengers, X-Men and Spider-man will be represented along with many others from Marvel’s incredible library. The opening night event will be Friday, April 25th from 7 – 10pm at the MONDO Gallery, located at 4115 Guadalupe St. in Austin, TX. Artist Mike Mitchell will be in attendance.

“My love for Marvel Comics was an integral part of growing up. Not just the comics, but the action figures, video games and cartoons. My intention with this show was to take those characters out of their action-oriented world and give them a moment of silence to catch their breath. There’s a humanizing quality to that which I find extremely interesting. This has easily been the most ambitious project I’ve ever taken on, and it’s due in part to my love for their universe; which is fictional by definition, but real in my mind and in the minds of others,” said Mitchell.

The Marvel villain MODOK has also taken over MONDO Gallery, with a super-sized cutout adorning the exterior of the building.

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!

Deadpool Gets Hitched & Sets New Guinness World Records Title

Deadpool.27.Cover

On sale today Deadpool # 27 sets a Guinness World Records title for the most comic book characters on a single issue cover! It’s a monumental, record-breaking issue as Wade Wilson ties the knot in front of hundreds of friends and family alike. The oversized cover of Deadpool # 27 includes an amazing 232 characters and creators. 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!

But the main story is just the beginning – this super-sized issue is packed to the gills with new stories from all-star Deadpool writers of yesteryear – including Fabian Nicieza, Mark Waid, Joe Kelly, Christopher Priest, Jimmy Palmiotti, Frank Tieri, Gail Simone, Daniel Way & Victor Gischler.

Peter David Announces Adaptation of Stephen King’s Dark Tower II: The Drawing of The Three

During his Emerald City Comicon Secret Origins panel, Peter David was asked by a member of the audience whether he enjoyed the collaboration with his co-creators on the “Dark Tower” comics. Rather than answer directly, he revealed the Marvel adaptations of Stephen King’s fantasy epic will resume with “Dark Tower II: The Drawing of the Three.” He also provided the ‘secret origin’ of how the project was greenlit.

“We are going to be doing more ‘Dark Tower.’ ‘The Drawing of the Three’ will actually be happening in comic book form,” David stated. “We are very, very pleased about that. I literally just got an email about this, two days ago. And it’s really funny — would you like to know why we’re doing more ‘Dark Tower?’ OK, no — well, yes, but — OK. Funny story! [Laughs]

“I had a stroke about a year and a couple months ago, and I was in a recovery center down in Jacksonville, FL, because I had the stroke down in Orlando, FL, during our vacation to Disney World,” David continued. “Go to Disney World, have a stroke and then go see Goofy! [Laughter] Because you’re both going [imitates Goofy's laugh]! At any rate, so — I get an email from Robin Furth, who is my co-writer on ‘Dark Tower,’ and she says, ‘Stephen would like your email. Can I give him your email address?’ So I go, ‘Sure!’ So I get an email from Stehen King, and Stephen says, ‘I’d like to come up and visit you, you know, up in the hospital. I’m down in Florida.’ And I went, ‘OK – sure!’ And he drove up. And I thought that he was in Jacksonville. No — he was five hours away. He did a five hour drive to come up and see me, because I think he was really relating to the concept that I was having to teach myself how to walk again. Because he had to go through the same thing when he got hit by that van, so this was really his wheelhouse. And while he was there, I said to him, ‘You know, we should really do more ‘Dark Tower,’ ’cause I get a lot of people coming up to me, saying, “I want to see ‘The Drawing of the Three.’ I want to see the next book.”‘ And Steve said, ‘Really?’ And I went, ‘Yeah!’ and he says, ‘OK — we’ll do that!’ And then he contacted Marvel Comics, and… Marvel went, ‘OK!’ And lo and behold, now we’re doing ‘Dark Tower’ again, so thank God I had a stroke!”

Disney’s Lucasfilm & Marvel Entertainment Join Forces To Publish Star Wars Comics & Graphic Novels

Screen Shot 2014-01-03 at 10.07.32 AM

The Walt Disney Company’s Lucasfilm Ltd. and Marvel Entertainment are joining forces to bring new Star Wars adventures to readers across the galaxy, with Marvel granted exclusive rights to create and publish Star Wars comics and graphic novels beginning in 2015.

The agreement marks a homecoming for the Star Wars comic books. Marvel Comics published the first Star Wars comic book, Star Wars #1, in March 1977, which went on to sell more than 1 million copies.

mswc1cover_528_poster

Marvel Comics published its Star Wars series for nine years. In 1991, Dark Horse Comics took over the license, publishing fan-favorite titles like Dark Empire and Star Wars: Legacy. Last year, Dark Horse released The Star Wars #1, an adaptation of George Lucas’ original rough-draft screenplay for the film, garnering rave reviews and national media attention and ranking among the top-selling Star Wars comics of all time.

“Dark Horse Comics published exceptional Star Wars comics for over 20 years, and we will always be grateful for their enormous contributions to the mythos, and the terrific partnership that we had,” said Carol Roeder, director of Lucasfilm franchise publishing, Disney Publishing Worldwide.  “In 2015, the cosmic adventures of Luke, Han, Leia and Chewbacca will make the lightspeed jump back to Marvel, to begin a new age of adventures within the Star Wars universe.”

“We here at Marvel could not be more excited to continue the publication of Star Wars comic books and graphic novels,” said Marvel Worldwide Publisher and President, Dan Buckley. “The perennial brand of Star Wars is one of the most iconic in entertainment history and we are honored to have the opportunity to bring our creative talent pool to continue, and expand Star Wars into galaxies far, far away.”

“We’re incredibly excited by this next chapter in the Star Wars saga,” said Andrew B. Sugerman, executive vice president of Disney Publishing Worldwide. “Bringing together the iconic Lucasfilm and Marvel brands to tell new stories will allow us to continue to thrill lovers of the original Star Wars comic books and entertain generations to come.”

Marvel has continued to push comic book publishing forward with innovations and experiments like motion comics and digital-only releases, in addition to its deep, ongoing catalog of monthly series and graphic novels created by some of the industry’s most gifted artists and writers.

Marvel’s Deadpool Getting Married This April

DeadpoolWeddingFinal

Marvel’s comics have had their fair share of weddings over the years – Peter Parker and Mary Jane, Bruce Banner and Betty Ross, Black Panther and Storm, Scott Summers and Jean Grey, and most recently, Northstar and Kyle Jinadu. Now another wedding is on the horizon at Marvel, and the couple will likely surprise you.

Teaser images were revealed from Marvel today, including the invitation to the wedding, which will see an unannounced bride who will be betrothed to none other than Deadpool! The main quesion on everyone’s mind is no doubt, who would be crazy enough to marry Deadpool?

Though he wouldn’t reveal the identity of the bride-to-be, writer Gerry Duggan said that the wedding has been in the planning stages for some time.

“The honest answer is that it was written into a Deadpool story, but more or less as a gag, and Jordan D. White, the editor, was like a dog with a bone. He was like, ‘No, no, no – this is going to be a big deal.’ You know, we wrote it, so it’s not like we weren’t behind it. The fun thing has been – after his misadventures, I guess you’d call them, in North Korea, in the story arc ‘The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly,’ he learned a lot about himself and why he is the way he is. He doesn’t really have too much of a life. Yes, this is a knee-jerk reaction from a wounded guy to go out there and sort of do something crazy to sort of jump start a life, but there is a real emotional reason for doing it, so I think that will be the part that will resonate. Then the actual gags of the wedding will be fun too, but there is a real grounding to it, and that’s what will make it fun to explore.”

Who do you think Deadpool will be marrying? Could this all be an elaborate April Fool’s prank?

First Official Still From Upcoming Film Guardians of The Galaxy

1072601_433249510123410_688910239_o

Today, Walt Disney, along with Marvel Studios, released the first official still from their upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy.

In the still you see Gamora played by Zoe Saldana, Peter Quill aka Star-Lord portrayed by Chris Pratt, the CGI character Rocket Raccoon voiced by Bradley Cooper, Drax the Destroyer played by Dave Batista and Groot voiced by Vin Diesel.

Here is the official synopsis for the film.

“From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team – the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand – with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.”

The film will be released on August 1, 2014.

Zombies & Vampires Invade NYC in George Romero’s Empire of The Dead # 1

Empire_of_the_Dead_001_Cover

When the dead fight the dead – where does that leave the living? Marvel is pleased to present your very first look at Empire of the Dead #1 – from zombie godfather and horror visionary George Romero and Eisner Award winning artist Alex Maleev!

Welcome to New York City years after a horrifying plague has swept the nation. The Big Apple is a quarantine zone – but that doesn’t guarantee safety inside! Flesh-eating zombies roam within the remains of Manhattan – and they are not alone. Vampires lurk in the shadows as well, feasting on the living and the undead alike – and no one is safe!

“Like a surgeon, George Romero is once again using the horror genre as a scalpel, cutting through the surface of everyday life to expose society’s undercurrents,” said editor Bill Rosemann. “One could say that the vampires are the Haves and the zombies are the Have-Nots. And us poor humans? We’re the ones getting caught in the crossfire of their escalating war. It’s a violent clash indeed, and Alex Maleev is bringing this undead battle to horrifying – but beautiful – life!”

What happens when the undead invade the city that never sleeps? Find out when Empire of the Dead #1 shambles into a comic shop on January 8, 2014.

Spinning out of the groundbreaking new Infinite Comic series Daredevil: Road Warrior, Daredevil #1 marks a new start for Matt Murdock. Armed with an imperceptible radar sense and a passion for justice – the blind lawyer from Hell’s Kitchen is ready to make his mark on the Golden City’s streets. But, San Francisco local vigilante, The Shroud is already keeping the street safe – and he’s not ready to share the spotlight!

Big changes are in store for the Man Without Fear – as old haunts and familiar faces emerge ready to give the devil his due!

 Every first issue bearing the All New Marvel NOW! branding includes a code for a free digital copy of that same comic on the Marvel Comics app for iOS and Android devices.
