Out Today: Hulk vs Iron Man 4 and UBER 16

Two books out this week. Firstly…

Where I say goodbye to Iron Man. It’s been a fascinating exercise in co-writing this one, and Mark and I have wrestled with it at least as much as Tony and Bruce have. The last one… well, as far as goodbyes go, I quite like this one. Of all my Marvel work, it reminds me most of the second issue of AvX Consequences. See what you think.

Preview here and you can buy Digitally here.

Wherein we see the effect of the Blitzmensch on the shape of the war. Naval Warfare, more Battleship candidates and lots more. Daniel does some wonderful things with the shippping.

You can buy digitally here, which also includes some preview pages.

Out Now: Uber 11

Just got off the plane, but time for a quick COMIC OUT! update.

As Uber started with issue 0, Issue 11 marks the end of year one. As I’ve mentioned before, it’d be the end of the first season if we were a HBO drama. Of the response I’ve got so far, what I’ve done seems to have had the response I expected. It’s the complete game changing one, and the issues that follow are some of my favourite work I’ve done for anything in the last year or so. Hope you find it interesting.

If you’re not a shop-buyer, you can buy it digitally here.

(I’ve already had a few questions about the issue on Tumblr. I’m going to give it a few days before answering them, for fairly obvious reasons. Even then, I may be a bit selective of what to answer publicly.)

Also, I’ll be at the Calgary Expo all this weekend. In fact, I’ll be heading down there in a couple of hours. I want to finish a script (UBER 19) and work out before doing that, and the fact I’m doing both when getting off a plane rather than just lying on the floor and twitching is all kind of scary. That said, my exercise is mainly lying on the floor and twitching. And my writing, for that matter.

Calgary Expo: 24th-27th (I.e. This weekend)

I’ll be there.

Obviously short notice, but really looking forward to seeing anyone who’s there. I haven’t actually done a Canadian con before, so this is doubly exciting. I’ll primarily be at the Avatar booth, so do come by and say hello and/or buy fine comic product. If I’m not there, I’m sure there will be details of where I am about.

More details of the con here.

Yes, Karen Gillan’s going, so there’s the potential for one of us killing the other one and CLAIMING THE NAME ONCE AND FOR ALL.

THREE #1 for FREE

The first issue of Ryan Kelly, Jordie Bellaire and my just completed Image Miniseries THREE is now available to download from Image’s site. Go gets. We were all really proud of this one. It’s dense, dark, ludicrously over-researched and as a whole is one of the things I’m most proud of doing in comics.

You can buy the rest from there too, or head over to Comixology. Alternatively, if the one issue intrigues you the whole thing is available to buy as a trade in April.

Also, if you speak with my inability to pronounce THREE then THREE sounds identical to FREE. Not relevant, but a little local colour.

Oh yeah. the release.

June.

Out Today: Uber #9 (Also other fine comic product mentions, including the second Young Avengers trade “Alternative Culture” and this title is getting long I’ll stop.

One issue actually hitting the shelves, and a few other things of note…

Several covers for Uber, but let’s go with the especially lovely wrap-around one. Well, lovely for a certain value of lovely. Uber reaches The Second Battle Of Kursk, which is the largest enhanced human conflict yet seen. And what’s Maria up to, eh?

You can buy it digitally here.

Also, while IRON MAN 20 INH was out in the states last week, it reaches the UK this week. Its basically tying in to the whole INHUMANITY excitement that’s going on, while also forwarding the whole Mandarin plot. Preview hereComixology here.. And if you’re looking for the cover, it’s this one.

I didn’t realise a certain little something came out last week in comic shops…

The second Young Avengers trade! Pop into any local comic shop, and they should be able to get it for you. For a few mail orders, here’s PAGE 45 in NottinghamHere’s Forbidden Planet’s. For the Americans, here’s Midtown Comics. Honestly, wherever you get your comic books should be able to get you a copy snappy.

If you’re willing to wait a few weeks and fear and loathe comics, you can get it from book retailers too. Here’s amazon’s handy pre-order.

It makes me smile that we’ve got the New Statesman quoted on the cover. Muhahaha.

Writer Notes: THREE #4

This next, I think. I suspect this year I’ll be doing this slightly less regularly, so I’m going to pick and choose a bit more (mainly to open up time to do other things).

Spoilers, obv.
