Comic Book Fix: Marvel Teases Upcoming “NOW!” Titles
Last Updated on Friday, 3 August 2012 02:28 Written by david golbitz Wednesday, 1 August 2012 03:18
Marvel has chosen this week to unveil teaser images of a few of its upcoming “Marvel NOW!” relaunches. Why make these announcements the first week of August instead of, oh, say, during Comic-Con, who knows? I guess they thought they’d get more traction in a slow news cycle rather than deal with the deluge of material spewing forth from San Diego this year. Regardless, this is the week Marvel has chosen. And it must have worked, because here I am writing about it.
Anyone who has perused the latest Previews that was released last week might have noticed that a whole lot of Marvel titles are ending come October, which lines up with the “NOW!” relaunches. Ed Brubaker is leaving Captain America, Matt Fraction is leaving both Invincible Iron Man and The Mighty Thor, Jonathan Hickman is ending his Fantastic Four and FF books, and Jason Aaron is wrapping up his all-too-brief run on Incredible Hulk. Aside from the three previously announced “Marvel NOW!” titles–Uncanny Avengers, New Avengers and All-New X-Men–what else does Marvel have coming down the pike? Well, now we know at least a couple more titles and their creative teams.
Read on for more.

Comic Book Fix: Comic-Con 2012 Recap
Last Updated on Wednesday, 18 July 2012 02:35 Written by david golbitz Wednesday, 18 July 2012 02:35
And like that … it’s gone. The pop culture whirlwind that is San Diego Comic-Con is now in the wind, and everyone can catch their breath. After four days of nonstop press releases and panel announcements, the comic book industry is taking a collective sigh this week as it recovers from what many have affectionately dubbed “Nerd Prom.” And while the industry recuperates, that gives us plenty of time to sift through all the tweets and RSS feeds to find the truly big news of the weekend.
While a lot of attention is heaped on the various movie panels (Guardians of the Galaxy! The Winter Soldier!), I’m going to stick to comic book news in this post. Movies might make more money, but the real innovation these days is being done at your local comic book shop. So read on for what I think were some of the biggest announcements of this year’s Comic-Con.

Comic Book Fix: Wondercon News and New Reviews
Last Updated on Wednesday, 21 March 2012 01:34 Written by david golbitz Wednesday, 21 March 2012 11:00
For the first time since it began Wondercon was held last weekend somewhere other than the Bay Area. Originally held in Oakland, Wondercon moved to San Francisco in 2003, but due to ongoing renovations at the Moscone Center, CCI, the convention’s organizers, moved Wondercon south to the supposedly warmer climate of sunny Anaheim. Convention guests and attendees braved the elements during an unseasonably fierce downpour on St. Patrick’s Day to fill the Anaheim Convention Center for what many consider to be one of the better convention experiences in recent memory, leading some to wonder whether the Bay Area has lost its signature convention for good.
But amidst the poor weather and devoted cosplayers, some interesting news was announced over the weekend. The return of a fan-favorite Marvel captain, though perhaps not the one you’re thinking of. And a longtime Vertigo writer is plunging into the deep end of Marvel’s mutant waters writing not one but two ongoing series. And a prominent voice and longtime advocate for creators to embrace digital comics is finally putting his money where his mouth is, selling his vast collection of comic books to help fund his new series of digital comics.
Read on for details on these stories and more, including my reviews of some of last week’s biggest releases, like Brian K. Vaughan’s latest creator-owned series, the spacefaring sci-fi epic, Saga.
