Rest of the Rest: Open Thread

With only two titles this week, and minor Wolverine appearances at that, I thought it wiser to combine them into one ‘Rest of the Rest’ open thread…

Uncanny X-Men #522 (Preview)
Writer: Matt Fraction
Pencils: Whilce Portacio
Inks: Ed Tadeo

From Marvel: “She’s been gone for a long time, but she’s coming back. This isn’t a hoax. This isn’t a joke. KITTY PRYDE is back in this over-sized special issue of UNCANNY X-MEN”

Wolverine cameos in this melodramatic and uneven return of Kitty Pryde.

As an aside, doesn’t Kitty need to eat to survive?

In stores March 24, 2010.




Breaking Into Comics the Marvel Way #2 (Preview)
“Green Dreams”
Writer: Peter David
Pencils: Tommaso Bennato
Inks: Vincente Cifuentes

From Marvel: “Want to know what it takes to break into Marvel Comics like these guys? Then look no further than this two-part book which is a must-have for anyone wanting to be a Comic Book Breakout Star! After traveling the globe and meeting scores of talented illustrators, intrepid writer, editor and talent manager C.B. Cebulski is giving twelve rising star artists the opportunity to do their breakout work at Marvel Comics! But not only will BREAKING INTO COMICS THE MARVEL WAY showcase the work of these up-and-comers, C.B. will also provide an insider’s commentary on how these artists got their work seen and what it was that landed them the gig. And with step-by-step submission information and a sample Marvel Comics script, these books are MUST HAVES for anyone interested in doing their breakout work and breaking into the comics industry!”

Wolverine cameos in a dream, but I do like the concept of a book for artists trying to break in.

I have an even better idea.

How about couple new artists with new writers? And tell the comic book community at large if they want to keep open submissions, then they need to keep the sales level of the title respectable.

Just a thought.

In stores March 24, 2010.
