by  in Comic News Comment

Announcements slowed down on Sunday at Comic-Con International, and apparently so have I. So let’s get to it …

• Marvel announced that Dan Slott will be the sole writer on Amazing Spider-Man, as the “Brand New Day” storyline comes to a close. He’ll work with artists Humberto Ramos, Marcos Martin and Stefano Caselli on the series. The book will ship twice a month.

At that same panel, Marvel announced the creative team on the new Spider-Girl series teased in recently in Previews will be Paul Tobin and Clayton Henry. They also announced a new Carnage miniseries by Zeb Wells and Clayton Crain, as well as an Osborn miniseries by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Rios about Norman Osborn’s time in prison.

• Dark Horse announced three Robert E. Howard-related projects: a new Kull miniseries by David Lapham, a Solomon Kane mini by Bruce Jones and an anthology called Savage Sword.

• And looking back at a couple of items we missed from Friday’s Grant Morrison panel, the writer announced that DC will release an Absolute We3, and he’s also confident that they’ll find a way to release the Flex Mentallo mini-series.
