Comics Should Be Good blogger Greg Hatcher interviewed Xeric Award-winner David Yurkovich on his work to create a Bill Mantlo Benefit Book and Mantlo’s career in general. Mantlo was the co-creator of Cloak & Dagger and also wrote their first mini-series and much of their first ongoing series. To see preview pages and donate to the creation of the benefit book, Mantlo: A Life in Comics, visit here. (More after the jump.)
Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada stated that “there’s always a possibility, but there are no plans currently” for a new comic starring Cloak & Dagger. The entire Q&A column can be read here at Newsarama.
The Nova Prime Page reports that Nova is NOT in the newly-released Marvel: Ultimate Alliance video game. The previous source had erroneously identified Captain Marvel as Nova. However, as previousy reported, Namorita and Scarlet Spider are confirmed as non-playable characters. Source: Nova Prime Page.
On-sale today, the video game Marvel: Ultimate Alliance includes Namorita as a non-playable character. Her exact role in the game is unknown. A screen shot of her can be found here. Thanks to David Gallaher for the tip.
Marvel released their solicitations for comics shipping in January. Aside from the huge conclusion to Annihilation starring Nova and the penultimate conclusion to the latest Power Pack mini-series, not a big month. Oddly, info on Civil War and Loners is missing, although shipping info is included for Civil War: Front Line #10 (on-sale January 4) and Civil War #7 (on-sale January 17).
Newsarama has posted an interview with writer Keith Giffen on the conclusion of the 6-part Annihilation mini-series, and the one-shots that will follow. It includes an image of the cover to issue #6 featuring Nova.
This past Friday, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada responded once again to reader questions on his weekly Q&A column at Newsarama. One reader asked if the League of Losers, including Speedball, Darkhawk and Dagger, would ever be seen again after their appearance in the recently-released Marvel Team-Up #25, that series’ final issue. Quesada responded, “I suspect that that ending was constructed in that way so that we could bring them back some day. When, well that’s another story now isn’t it.” Read the full interview here.
