Hey, True Believer!
For those of you who made the journey to the San Diego Comic Con, all of us here at The House want to thank everyone — including the readers, the retailers, and the media — who stopped by the Marvel Booth! All of our staffers and creators loved having the chance to talk with you about the comics we all love… and how cool was that free MARVEL: 2001 preview book?

- Greg Rucka and Yoshitaka Amano on Elektra & Wolverine: The Redeemer

- The new team of Mike Grell and Michael Ryan on Iron Man
- Kevin Smith’s plans for a new Black Cat series, and
- Stan “The Man” Lee and Alan Davis creating the official comic book adaptation of the Spider-Man movie!
