NYCC | Sunday round-up

As is typical with most conventions, Sunday was a bit slower at the New York Comic Con in the news department. But a few items did manage to sneak out ...

• At the Mondo Marvel panel today, Marvel announced that Saturday Night Live cast members Bill Hader and Seth Meyers are working on an Amazing Spider-Man: The Short Halloween one-shot with art by Kevin Maguire.

• Editor Tom Brevoort announced "The Marvels Project" by Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting, which explores the origins of the Marvel Universe. It kicks off in June and is part of Marvel's 70th anniversary celebration.

• Chris Eliopoulos and Ed Guerra are working on a Lockjaw & the Pet Avengers one-shot, which will feature Lockjaw, frog Thor, Lockheed, Red Wing, Speedball's cat, Zabu and Aunt May's dog.

• Coming out of Saturday's panels and continuing a theme that played out all weekend, Dynamite Comics announced they had another $1 comic in the works featuring a Project Superpowers character. They also announced Garth Ennis is working on a six-issue series called Herogasm, while Leah Moore and John Reppion are working on a new Sherlock Holmes book.

• Speaking of comic book pricing, Radical announced yesterday that their comics will now generally be 48 pages each at a price of $4.99, with stories coming in three-part arcs. They also announced a few upcoming series, like Federal Vampire and Zombie Agency and Aladdin: Legacy of the Lost.

No doubt more stories and panel coverage will spill into tomorrow.
