HOLY $#!+ has stuff been busy and wonderful since I last posted!
The big thing to expound on (for today…) is GAMBIT! (And how you can get your hands on him…)
As announced at C2E2 – I’m writing an all new comic book series for the sexy, thieving Cajun mutant. This book is designed to be COMPLETELY NEW-READER FRIENDLY. We’ll be unfolding a whole new odyssey of heists, seduction, and globe-trotting high adventure for everyone who is, was, or could be interested in Gambit.
The main artist on the book is Clay Mann – who’s already won a legion of fans for his sexy and cinematic art work on X-Men: Legacy and Age of X. He’s been doing a phenomenal job of crafting a completely engulfing world and sophisticated characters. He’s also providing the covers for the first four issues – so you can get a sense of the world we’re building in the book:
The first TWO issues will come out in August – and if you’re interested in giving us a try – there’s THREE ways you can get the book:
- You can reserve your copies NOW from your local comic shop! (Find yours here.)
- You can get a year’s SUBSCRIPTION for home delivery (like a magazine) from Marvel.com for 25% off the cover price!
- Or – the comics will be available through ComiXology or Marvel Comics apps for iPad and Android devices on the same day as publication. (Stay tuned for those links when the book is released.)
I really think this book will be something that appeals to an incredibly wide audience. Our hope is to make this book something that a lapsed comic fan – or your girlfriend who’s just dipping her toe into comics can get hooked on (and understand the plot!).
I hope you’ll give us a shot. There’s is a LOT of sexy cool fun coming down the pipe.
And if you’re anxious to hear more particulars about what we’ve got planned – here are some of the interviews I did around the announcement:
