A few items from Marvel’s Next Big Thing panel.  Something of a round-up of recent events with some art.

First up, we find out the new Gambit series will open with a shower scene.  First Archaia announces an adaption of Cyborg 009, and now a shower scene at Marvel.  Manga’s influence is as strong as ever.

There’s going to be a special “honeymoon” issue of Astonishing X-Men and it will be an Annual.

It’s confirmed that Daniel Way will be leaving Deadpool.  Way has new project Marvel doesn’t want to talk about yet.

X-Factor will be having a 5-issue story arc called “Breaking Points” that will wrap up a lot of loose ends.

As of issue #58 in October, Red Hulk becomes Red She-Hulk by Jeff Parker, Carlo Pagulayan and Wellinton Alves.

With issue #58, Hulk (the Hulk title with the Red Hulk) will be changing it’s name to Red She-Hulk.  Jeff Parker stays on as writer, Carlo Pagulayan and Wellinton Alves on the art.

New Mutants is confirmed as ending with #50.

And a little Captain Marvel art to tide you over until that launches.


  1. I’m shocked Marvel is not publishing RED SHE-HULK #1. I understand the (short-term) success they had with INCREDIBLE HERCULES and BLACK PANTHER MWF; however, I would have thought that Red She-Hulk could carry a new title…


  2. It’s unfortunate that New Mutants is ending. The original series started not long after I began reading comics and I’ve always had a fondness for those characters.

    On the other hand, it’s a god-damned shame that there’s going to be a She-Hulk book that isn’t about the real, actual green one. Give Shulkie back to Dan Slott!

  3. If anything, Marvel may have given me an excuse to drop another title. I have, actually, grown to like the “Rulk” character; much more so under Parker’s guidance than under Loeb’s. The Red She-Hulk character, on the other hand, remains as interesting to me as a bag of rocks. I don’t really have a strong desire to read a series with her as the headliner. Maybe Parker can work his magic again, but I’ll, probably, be more inclined to spend my $3 on something else.
