Some hypothetical books we don't know anything about yet...

-Black Panther. A solo ongoing seems like a no-brainer.
-Thunderbolts. Surprising no-show, especially with Citizen V featured on the banner.
-Fantastic Four/Future Federation. Pretty sure Hickman said there would be a FF ongoing after Secret Wars.
-Black Widow. She's completely MIA, not on any team rosters and no solo. Surely there's something coming, here.
-Squirrel Girl. COME ON MARVEL. How does Howard the Duck get a relaunch but not Squirrel Girl
-Red Wolf/1872. Another no-show from the banner.
-Gamora. Pretty sure we know this one's coming, right?
-Weirdworld. Saw this on Rich's rumored complete list.

What am I missing?

Your not sorry.

Not yet.

*Dramatic music*

Also do you know the icon you spot had it's artwork touched up by the artist?

In other news.

So anyone see that Spider Woman comic cover?

She's pregnant! Other than marriage/relationships outside of the Fantastic Four (for now) children are the one other area that comics tend to fail horribly.

I am kind of our resident Sejic fanboy on here. That image is the new one :). I don't keep avatars for very long lol

I'm probably going to drop all the X-books because they don't have Cyclops in it. I might read All-New since it at least has young Cyke (and his design looks pretty good), but I dunno. I guess I should renew my MU sub and read some old X-men stuff instead.

That preview yesterday seemed to imply the search for Cyke is one of the first storylines in Extraordinary.

I'm not trying to be coy or anything, but I'm a big believer in letting people read the stories and not spoiling things ahead of time. But yes, Cyclops and a number of other prominent X-characters are missing due to this event with the Inhumans, and beyond that I'm not going say anything [Laughs] because it's just -- yeah, it's all part of the story we're telling in the first couple arcs.

Hopefully he's back by the end of these arcs...

Ales Kot is on twitter talking about what he would do if he was Marvel editor for a year.

I would be in.

Way in. Esp a Tula Lotay Hulk.

Is it normal for shops to mark alt covers up? My shop doesn't, but according to the owner, the other local shops charge upwards of 3x the price for variants?

It varies by shop and also the conditions the shop is required to meet to get the variants.

Have you read Fear Agent though?


Low is Minsblowing

Black Science is Mindblowing

Fear Agent is Mindblowing

Deadly Class is Amazing

Uncanny X-Force is Amazing

Uncanny Avengers, was Great

Yeah...he's a pretty big deal.

I should give FA and Low a read but I didn't find any of his books to be HOLY SHIT FRIGGIN' AWESOME quality.
They're good, and I would def. recommend his work, but I may get a better appreciation for him by reading those 2 series I mentioned.

Where has thou been for the past year?

Not reading dull DC and Marvel comics :p Heck I didn't even read Hickman's Avengers.

Black Science tho.

Yeah Black science ranks among my fav. of his work atm.

What did he write that you consider merely good?

I read some of his X-Force stuff which didn't interest me much, Black Science is pretty good.

Didn't he write Thunderbolts for a while? I liked Thunderbolts post Ellis and pretty sure his run was good.

Other than the X-men I wouldn't read any of those no matter who the creative team was.

-Black Panther. A solo ongoing seems like a no-brainer.
