The second part of the climactic “Young Avengers.” It really is pretty much all climax. Jamie and his art army did magnificent and beautiful things, charting the fall of the dominoes.
Iron Man 19 is the second part of IRON METROPOLITAN, with Tony taking his first cheery steps towards building his city. Includes cheerful distraction from emotional issues, Pepper meeting Arno, Marc proving useful, columnists being naughty and Mandarin Ring chaos.
Actually, while we’re talking Iron Man, associated press have just announced the next arc – RINGS OF THE MANDARIN. I’ll write more down the line, but basically “Malkeith the Accursed versus Iron Man.”

I’ll write properly about the issue coming out later, but I wanted to say:
Issue 13 is out today.
It’s pretty neat visually at times.
People have already put up photos of some of the pages in the main tag without spoiler warnings. I suspect there will be more, through enthusiasm is nothing else.
(EDIT: They’ve pulled them down presently. However…)
I would be wary about the tag until you’ve read the issue if you care about such things.

As we’re doing Thought Bubble this weekend, probably best get this one out the way. I suspect I’d have pulled the trigger on it early. Stuff to say!

Phew. Nerve-wracking wait over. Young Avengers 12 is out. I’ll write more about this down the line, but very pleased this is out there now. It’s basically the start of what my notes originally described as “The Gig To Save Reality” but found a different one before I wrote the thing. It’s essentially the double-issue climax where everything gets thrown in the air. After a couple of issues of anxiety, it’s something else.
You can buy from your local shop, or digitally at Comixology.
Oh – and for the British readers, Uber 7 has finally arrived in the UK this week if you want to grab a copy from the shops. The whole series is also available on Comixology.
I just realised it’s Children in need day. This is important.
So, I’m running a mini commissions day, but any money sent to me I’ll be donating to Children in Need instead. I’ll get through as many as I can today. So: if you like a sketch, send a chosen fee to my paypal account (I’ve added a temporary donate button to my home page at www.emmavieceli.com), and I’ll forward what we make together to Children in Need at the end of the day. ^_^
Get requesting. I’m selecting requests at random from the suggestion, with the aid of a hat and paper. Old skool. Remember to send your requests to my ask box rather than in reply, chaps. It’s much easier to keep track of.
And, in advance, I’m so sorry to those who don’t get picked. I’m only planning three slots, and I can tell it’s going to be a hard choice already - you guys are amazing. But if this goes well, I may well repeat some time. Keep the fab suggestions coming. I won’t be selecting the second sketch for a good couple of hours yet.
Sketches completed so far:
If I don’t select your sketch request and you’re interested in donating something to Children In Need anyways, you can always do so directly here:http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b008dk4b/features/money-subindex
As well as doing many awesome things, relevant to you lot, she’s one of Young Avengers: Afterparty’s guest artists.

Those who closely follow solicits have noted the absence of Young Avengers from the just-released February set. They’ve been wondering if that’s the end of our run.
In short: yes.
We were planning on revealing this at next week’s Thought Bubble Young Avengers panel, but the solicits were a little earlier than usual, so it’s jumped the gun.
What’s the story?
Jamie and my plan was always to do a season telling a contained story, leaving room to continue it if we felt we had something else to say. When the time came around and Marvel asked if we wanted to do more issues, Jamie and I decided we’d actually made our statement, and should leave the stage.
When we did that, Editor Supreme Lauren thought “Well, Young Avengers has always been in seasons. It’s never been a traditional ongoing. It exists in these short runs, where the creators do what they wish, then step away. Rather than becoming just like everything else, we should institutionalize that.”
In other words, while Young Avengers is going away after issue 15, I’m sure it’ll be back in an excellent new form at a future point.
We’ll be talking a bunch more at the panel and in future press, but that’s the core of it. It’s for the best. If Young Avengers ever became just another Superhero book it would depress the living hell out of me. I’d always rather be a firework rather than a low-watt bulb.
Video with 64 notes
You know the Comics Are For Everyone Diversity panel I turned into a Decompressed? They’ve just lobbed up the video for it, so you can admire all our handwaving expressiveness. I’m tagging it YA, as we do talk about it a bunch. Also, more than half the panel are in the Afterparty issues, as Jordie is now colouring some bits.

Step closer to the fire. I have things to talk about. No, not that close. Oh crap. Now you’re on fire. You’re going to die. I’m sorry. I should have been more specific.
