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. 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?

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

    CREATOR-OWN!!! Hell yeah!!!

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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…..

  6. 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.

  7. @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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.
