may find that this preview of "Afterlife with Archie" (A frankly rather awesome title IMHO) up at Newsarama to be the sort of thing that trashes childhoods and tarnishes treasured memories...

To malevolent bastards like me, on the other hand...

it's GOLD! )

CA: So do those defining traits take on a darker tone? Is Reggie now scheming for survival?

RAS: Yes. So far, the series’ big secret that we’ve told everyone is that Reggie’s the one who ran down Hot Dog, which is what triggered the zombie apocalypse. He’s got a vested interest in all of this staying quiet, in true Reggie Mantle fashion.

CA: So if I’m putting this together right, Reggie runs over Hot Dog.

RAS: Right.
This is an actual comic that is going to be published )

At SDCC this year, Marvel announced the release of a five-issue series of one-shots - 40 pages of "all-new material/no reprints" (according to the solicits) at $3.99 - focusing on what "some of the most popular Avengers think about what it takes to be a member of the legendary team" (from the marvel.com article linked at the bottom of this).

They are:
- Ant-Man & the Wasp, written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa with interior art by Stéphanie Hans (out Nov. 2 - tomorrow!)
- Vision, written by Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel with interior art by Stephane Perger (Nov. 9)
- Luke Cage, written by Adam Glass and Mike Benson with interior art by Dalibor Talajic (Nov. 16)
- Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver, written by Sean McKeever with interior art by Mirco Pierfederici (Nov. 23)
- Thor, written by Kathryn Immonen with interior art by Al Barrionuevo (Nov. 30)

Covers, solicits, and all sorts of previews (only from the first four, sorry) ahoy! )

More info is available from a marvel.com article in which each writer/writing team explains briefly what their goals are for their issue and a Newsarama interview with all writers except Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

Since this post raised the question, I dug back into the archives to see Emma Frost and Sue Storm going out on the lash.

It's from Marvel Knights 4: Impossible Things Happen Every Day, by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and assorted artists. This is from issue #21, with art by Valentine DeLandro.

It's Sue and Reed's anniversary, but Reed's gone off to Washington for a conference, so Sue wakes up on her own.

After beating up the Mole Man, Sue takes Val out to Franklin's association soccer match (and RAS gets in a Mary-Jane Watson dig) when Alicia phones to ask Sue for a girl's night out.

Carnage does not actually follow
Here come the girls )

And, in the theme of kick-arse women from the last decade, Wu Ao-Shi, the Pirate Queen of Pinghai Bay will fuck you up bad

We all know what happened when Mephisto made a bargain with Spider-Man...but what happens when he tries his luck with a certain furry blue elf?

Since I posted the Predictably Unpredictable monologue, lots of people have been gushing over Wolf at the door. (you can buy a copy from Amazon Marketplace for £3.98 plus postage, or from the real Amazon for £8.37). I went and re-read some of it yesterday and yes, I cried. #4 is featured in Best of the Fantastic Four hardcover along with some other classics like the origin story, Johnny Storm's April Fool's, Reed asking Otto Octavius for help with Sue's pregnancy, the first issue of Waid and Wieringo's run on FF and quite a bit more. I think that Liddleville is in there too, but it's next door and I'm not prepared to check.

I only post to give you probably the prettiest thing that McNiven drew in Wolf at the Door - the beginning of The Ledge Scene )

I know that it's not One Perfect Moment Week until Sunday, but you have my attention now. This is from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Steve McNiven's superlative Wolf at the Door, the first collection in their Marvel Knights Four run. It appears regularly on Idea102 because it's just so bloody good looking.

Context: Reed, Sue, Ben, Franklin and Franklin's friends are camping in New Jersey's pine barrens. Aliens are kidnapping cattle and also two documentary makers and one of Franklin's friends. Reed and Ben go to save them, while Sue protects the kids. Reed ends up trapped on the alien ship which leads us to Escape Scenario 63 )

This was brought up numerous times in the previous Amazing Spider-Man thread, so I decided to post it once and for all. In my opinion, it's one of the better Chameleon stories out there. Not surprisingly, Marvel has all but forgotten it.

On a related note, this was the first Spidey story written by Paul Jenkins. He would later become the writer for Peter Parker Spider-Man and Spectacular Spider-Man.

We all know how Spider-Man got to where he is now. To save the life of Aunt May (against her wishes), Peter made a deal with Mephisto, the embodiment of evil in the Marvel universe. In exchange for May's life, he sacrificed his marriage with Mary-Jane Watson.

Of course, this isn't the first time Mephisto has made an offer with someone. In this occasion, he makes an offer to Nightcrawler. How does the Furry Blue Elf take it?
