Official Press Release
His books rest comfortably at the top of the sales charts each month and the stories he weaves in them get the fans talking! The current list of Marvel projects Bendis is involved with and the creators he is collaborating with is weighty and far-flung: HOUSE OF M with Olivier Coipel, ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN with Mark Bagley, DAREDEVIL with Alex Maleev, NEW AVENGERS with David Finch, SECRET WAR with Gabriele Dell’Otto, and of course, his very own special masterpiece, POWERS with Michael Avon Oeming.
“Well, obviously, those would be the ones I am lucky enough to be writing,” says the scribe. “Spider-Man, Daredevil, the New Avengers, Jessica Jones, I could go on and on. But also, the greatest supporting casts- Foggy Nelson, Mary Jane Watson, Jarvis…
“That is one of the big reasons my life with Marvel has been so fortunate. I have been given the amazing opportunity to chronicle these characters that mean so much to all of us, with the artists who’s work I think is the best comics has ever seen, and do all of it under the supervision of one of the best editorial staffs that has ever sat in the mighty Bullpen.”
“My readers have been so open to the variety of ideas and projects we’ve tried and its impossible to thank them enough. The best thing I can do is stay with the company who I think makes the best kind of comics, the kind of comics I need to make, with the best characters in the history of modern fiction. Its my true honor to stick to the commitment I made to the people who have supported these books.”
Marvel Editor-In-Chief Joe Quesada is obviously very happy that Bendis will continue his good works at the House of Ideas. “Brian’s a true professional, a good guy, and one heckuva talented writer. When it comes right down to it, what more could Marvel ask for? He’s opened up new vistas for our fictional stars and single-handedly created a fanbase that’s truly overwhelming. Brian’s is, no doubt about it, Da Man to End All Mans!”
