Marvel has a big writer’s summit going on this week, and they celebrated the creative process with cake, as this picture by editor Nate Cosby proves. Does the tribute to Daredevil have anything to do with his regular book ending in November? Only the dessert bar will tell.
Brian Bendis had more from the summit in a message board posting:
the superpowered nanny for Luke Cage and Jessica Jones’ baby was voted on and unanimously decided by the entire Marvel editorial team and the attending creators. their first appearance will be in new avengers number seven.
a sudden and surprising shift in the avengers roster lineup was discussed and mostly settled on. when an opening is available on one of the teams it’s always interesting which characters certain editors make a pitch for.
next year I will be working with one of the greatest artists in the world at a brand-new series starring a character I have barely touched. my ground level interpretation of the character was met with surprising support. it’s rare that creators as diverse as Jonathan Hickman, Jepf Loeb, and Dan slott all feel good about the same idea so that was a big win.
all the rest are other creators ideas and projects that I am sworn to secrecy about and cannot discuss here or anywhere else. but I can tell you the future looks bright for nerds of all shapes and sizes.
well, except for the ones that are never happy about anything. I can’t help you there
more importantly, I had my first shake shack yesterday. it did not disappoint.
then very upset that the NYU Chick-fil-A is closed for the summer. if I haven’t already agreed to do NYCC, I would have now.
