Now Official – Ed Brubaker No Longer Working For Marvel

By Todd Allen

Here’s the news right from Brubaker’s fingers:

He goes on to Tweet that his next announcement will be in December or January will make you loose control of your bowels.



  1. Ed, thanks for many years of great work at Marvel. Will keep reading whatever you write, wherever you write it.

  2. “He goes on to Tweet that his next announcement will be in December or January will make you loose control of your bowels.”

    Or lose, which is probably messier.

  3. The long-awaited Jughead by Brubaker?!?

  4. Hikaru says:

    Can anyone elaborate on the legalities of the Icon imprint? I know it’s considered a creator owned line, but would Brubaker and Phillips be able to take Criminal/Incognito to another publisher for new stories and reprints?

  5. Micah says:

    DC! QUICK! Give him a book, anything he wants!

  6. Roberto Briceno says:

    As long as he was able to tell this stories (along with the artists and NOT kicked off).

    CREATOR-OWN!!! Hell yeah!!!

  7. jacob goddard says:

    Is it too much to hope for more Lowlife?
    I miss the days when people confused him for Chester Brown (a huge compliment as far as I’m concerned).

    What about that Alternative Press project he never finished?
    I hear they’re up and running again.

  8. This is really exciting news, Brubaker deserves to own the stories he writes. So I can’t wait for more Creator owned stuff.

  9. I’m sure Bru did the math and realized he’d be losing money writing characters for another company. The time is right for creator owned books.

    Cap was great and I enjoy Winter Soldier but Fatale is off the hook freaking crazy good!

  10. Archer says:

    Last creator to leave the Big Two, please turn off the lights.

  11. Al™ says:

    Creator owned is the way to go. Why make other people rich?

  12. DC quick please don’t offer him anything and corrupt him with your bullsh!t. Sounds a lot different than the last few folks who left DC weird…..

  13. likefunbutnot says:

    I’ve greatly enjoyed the work Ed Brubaker has done for Marvel. I’m disappointed that he’s leaving and I hope to read whatever he chooses for his next project.

    Unless it’s a DC book.

  14. horatio weisfeld says:

    Class act >> Interesting move >> My support will follow where he goes.

  15. Jason A. Quest says:

    @Hiakru – I don’t have inside info about the contract, but Marvel probably has exclusive publishing rights as long as they have the books available in print.

  16. Looooove his (creator-owned) stuff. It’s no slight on Brubaker, but I never really got into Captain America. Doesn’t matter who’s writing it, but Cap has never been a must read for me.

  17. The Brube made Marvel better. Looking fwd to full-time creator-owned action from an old indie pal.

  18. TonyJazz says:

    I would like to see him write for DC. At least, he would add some additional writing talent to their line-up (versus the mistake of using Leifeld for a while…).

    And he will be missed because of many productive years at Marvel.

  19. Granted, nobody can stay on the mark forever. Maybe he thought he was beginning to dry, and didn’t want to undergo a fat Elvis phase.

  20. Anything Brubaker writes, I’ll be reading….
