Each week AXEL-IN-CHARGE — CBR’s weekly Friday afternoon Q&A with Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso — features not only his thoughts on the latest industry matters, but also a peek inside upcoming Marvel releases.
This past Friday’s installment featured Alonso discussing the latest “Secret Wars”-related announcements, including “The Korvac Saga”: “With his extensive knowledge of all things Guardians, we figured who better to write the “Korvac Saga” than Dan Abnett? And finishing out the creative one-two punch is newcomer Otto Schmidt — the perfect choice to tackle this multi-character epic.”
Before “Korvac Saga” debuts in June, readers can see Schmidt’s work in “Guardians Team-Up” #4, scheduled for release on April 1 — and here’s a look inside.
Long-time Avengers character The Vision got a lot of buzz this past week following the release of the latest “Avengers: Age of Ultron” trailer, which ends with a quick glimpse of the synthezoid in live-action. Vision’s also the focal point of these new pages from “Uncanny Avengers” #3, illustrated by Daniel AcuÃ±a and scheduled for release on April 1.
Deadpool may be headed to a highly publicized death in April, but the version of the character that appears in “Return of the Living Deadpool” still has at least a couple of months to go — as evidenced in these Nik Virella-illustrated new pages from “Return of the Living Deadpool” #3, scheduled for release on April 1.
Finally, this past Friday’s AXEL-IN-CHARGE also included the debut of a “Weirdworld” #1 cover, by former “Captain America” and current “Velvet” artist Steve Epting. “Weirdworld” is slated to debut in June from the creative team of Jason Aaron and Mike Del Mundo, and Alosno shared this on the series’ development: “Once again, we were planning the geography of Battleworld at a retreat, and Weirdworld came up, and we realized that ‘Secret Wars’ gave us the chance to redefine it as an actual part of the Marvel Universe that fused disparate parts of Marvel’s pre-existing fantasy universes, including the original Weird World.”
