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 […]

Bendis… Even in New Jersey

Monday, January 15th, 2007 picked New Avengers #22, which featured Luke Cage, as the Best Single Issue of 2006. It’s been clear for a long time that the mighty BMB had a soft spot for the tough-skinned guy (Alias, The Pulse, Daredevil, you name it), so it’s no surprise to me that he really nailed it in this […]

Bendis to Cap off Civil War!

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

Oh, how cool is THIS? Civil War #7 ships on February 21 (late, but worth it, I bet) and finishes off the series… NOT! The TRUE ending to the series will come courtesy NOT of series creators Mark Millar and Steve McNiven, but rather of the two guys who started it all waaaaay back in […]

Bendis Speaks!

Wednesday, December 13th, 2006

There’s an excerpt from an upcoming print interview with Bendis on Newsarama and it’s AWESOME. He talks about the writing process, Hollywood, TV, the changing adminstrations he’s seen at Marvel, and all kinds of other stuff. Great stuff here. Reading Bendis’s comics reminds me why I like his work. Reading interviews like this remind me […]

Terrible News: Dave Cockrum Passes Away

Monday, November 27th, 2006

Oh, man. Dave Cockrum has died. I guess a lot of people my age don’t really know who Dave Cockrum is, which is a shame. My dad is a HUGE Cockrum fan, though, so I’ve been looking at the man’s art and hearing about him since I could hold a comic book in my hands. […]

New Avengers #25 Reviews

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

People are talking about it… Silver Bullet: From a critic who has definitely NOT liked Civil War to date, “…this issue was probably the coolest print having to do with Civil War in any way, shape or form.” Comixfan: “Not only has it offered a distinct tone and viewpoint of the war for each chapter […]

Bendis, The Greek Goddess?

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

Whoa — my idol shares a name with a Greek goddess? According to, “Bendis was a Thracian goddess of the hunt whom the Greeks identified with Artemis, and hence with the other two aspects of the former Minoan Triple Goddess, Hecate and Persephone. She was a huntress, like Artemis, but was accompanied by dancing […]
