    "...sharply authentic....Fanboy's whip-smart, often hilariously sarcastic voice skillfully captures a teenager's growing self-awareness, and adds fresh, urgent perspective to age-old questions..."

NEW AVENGERS #27 Five-Page Preview

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

Because it’s impossible to overestimate the goodness of a cool preview… Check out

Bendis & Stern & My Life Sucks

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

Had to get up early to finish a report for history that is probably about two hundred years ahead of most of the wastoids in my class. I’m willing to bet the teacher will like it, if she understands it. Anyhow, so I missed the announcement of the first entry below. And that day just […]

Bendis Wrap-up!

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

Some of the latest and coolest Bendis news for y’all… Marvel’s editor-in-chief Joe Quesada mentions Bendis in his regular Friday column for Newsarama, which actually only appeared on Monday. (Even Marvel’s COLUMNS are late — har, har.) Comic Book Bin reviews New Avengers: Illuminati #1 An interview with Bendis collaborator Brian Reed (somehow I missed […]

New Avengers Newsarama Finale

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

Bendis had a two-day wrap-up on Newsarama for his new New Avengers coverage. First, he dealt with Spidey and I thought he had some really good insights. I don’t know why it is that he’s right, but just give it a read and you’ll see that he totally gets it: He said, “There is nothing […]

Bendis in the NY Times…Uncovered!

Thursday, January 18th, 2007

A few years back, Bendis did a pretty funny strip for the New York Times (of all places!) about what it’s like to be, well, Bendis! I’ve only ever been able to find low-res versions of it… until now! Click on the thumbnail to see the cartoon in hi-res glory! I especially like the bit […]

More New “New Avengers” with Bendis

Thursday, January 18th, 2007

Newsarama put two more of the new New Avengers characters out there at the same time… and with good reason. These guys go together like salt and pepper, the Lone Ranger and Tonto, or pants (you never really get one pant, do you?): Powerman & Iron Fist. Way cool!

Day 5: Spider-Woman

Wednesday, January 17th, 2007

I’m not big on saying “I told you so,” but I told you so. One day after the lame-o “Meet the new New Avengers” article on Newsarama about the oh-so-mysterious Wolverine, Bendis is back in form with some great observations on Spider-Woman, a character we all know is near and dear to him. He said, […]

Okay, this is stretching it a little…

Monday, January 15th, 2007

Everyone knows I’m the biggest Bendis fan this side of anywhere, but today’s “Meet the New Avengers” installment is officially lame. I mean, it’s Wolverine. Guess we don’t know anything about HIM! I’m sure it will be better tomorrow. Seriously, it just about has to be! Bendis said, ““Another character not in the crux of […]

Bendis New Avengers series of articles on Newsarama

Monday, January 15th, 2007

Newsarama has been running a get-to-know-the-new-New-Avengers series of articles with Bendis. Mainly it’s been about what’s going to happen after Civil War, when there are two teams of Avengers (New Avengers features one, Mighty Avengers will feature the other). This has links to the first three of the articles in this series. More are coming […]
