"Just making a small shift in the way that we were approaching the medium of film (via the medium of comics) seemed to open up an entirely new way of looking at things, with a resultant dazzling array of new narrative possibilities. By episodes three and four – “The Flame of Remorse Returns” and “A King at Twilight” if you’re interested, fear-fans – [Kevin O'Neill and I] were both becoming quietly convinced that these were about the best stand-alone pieces that we had ever done in our respective careers. Considering how fleeting and ephemeral some of our source material is, I think we’ve both been a bit startled by some of the profoundly human statements that have emerged, as if from nowhere." -- Alan Moore

So a little introduction: Carnage was one of the characters Bendis had no interest in doing. He changed his mind after reading an article about what not to do with science and the result is a character that is Carnage in appearance only. Your mileage will vary but in my opinion this storyline includes what may be the single worst thing Bendis has ever done on the title. See for yourself.

As a heads up there's some disturbing imagery here that's not commonly found in a Spider-Man comic.

"For the longest time, DC has put Diana on the pedestal, but because of the audience interest she hasn't really been supported. She hasn't been portrayed in a way that fought that status. But certainly in the last couple of years and this year in particular because of the film, because of Grant Morrison's "Earth One" and because of Renae De Liz's "Legend of Wonder Woman," it feels like the audience is really waking up to the fact that this character is really important. And they're showing up. I feel like that's really fantastic and that we're really lucky because we get to do something of significance with this character at a significant time." - Nicola Scott

CBR News: He definitely has a long history at both Marvel and DC. This week brought news of midnight sales next month for "Civil War II" #3, which clearly positions that as a very important issue, with what's billed as a major character death. We talked a lot last week about War Machine's death; given the early promotion around this upcoming death -- including a Joe Quesada variant of the unnamed fallen hero -- is it fair to say this is expected internally to have an even bigger impact?

Axel Alonso: Yes. It's a big character and his or her death is a major turning point in the story. And the scene in which they die -- everyone will be talking about.

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Artist: David Lopez


I was going to post this tomorrow, but since Marvel has no damn patience...

There was something before Onslaught.

There was First Sign.

It began in Captain America #449, with him being cut off from Sharon Carter by a forcefield.

The field enveloped Manhattan, stopping the power in everything- including a chopper in the sky.

It fell into the East River.

He dove in after it. )

"303 is the story of a Russian Special Forces Colonel, who, after a particularly brutal bit of black ops nastiness in Afghanistan, decides to walk to America to take out a highly important target. It's a story I've had kicking around in my head for the last few years. The title refers to the rifle he's going to use for the job, an antique British army Lee Enfield, three oh three calibre."
