With the last thread having been put to rest, I'm being the opportunistic bastard who creates the replacement thread.

That said, this is the previews thread and as such This thread is filled with lots of spoilers. So you've been warned at least twice now.

So to kick things off:

Mark Waid and Dale Eaglesham on Captain America #600, with pencils from Eaglesham.

    Yeah. It's going to be filled with all sorts of awesomeness. I'm especially looking forward to Joe Simon's essay--the man who taught Stan Lee about showmanship.

    Wait...so does that mean that Brubaker is dropping off of Captain America? He's already dropping off of Daredevil. I will be sad if he's off of Cap too.

    Looks like this will be almost as epic as Thor #600.

    When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    Captain America was a cop at one point?

    Also, there's already a conversation about Black Panther in the Comic News thread, so you might as well discuss it there instead of here. No use having two groups of people discuss the same thing concurrently, after all.

    Hudlin Black Panther

    Since this seems like as good a place as any, why is the Hudlin BP such a point of contention amongst dudes who read the comics? Not trying to start an argument (though it probably will end up that way), I'm honestly just curious.

    That discussion doesn't really have anything to do with previews.

    The second volume of one of my favorite comix ever, Won Ton Soup, comes out in a few weeks. You guys should check out the free huge preview of the first volume.
    Book Description
    Johnny Boyo could have had it all. Women. Money. Fame. As one of the premiere chefs in the galaxy, Johnny's culinary skills could have made him a star. So with everything he ever dreamed of his for the taking, why would Johnny leave it all behind to become a space trucker? Not even Citrus Watts, the girl he left behind, knows for sure. With the sizzle of life in the kitchen behind him, things were going okay for Johnny. Now after years out of the catering scene, Johnny and his pal Deacon are about to find themselves in water hotter than anything they've ever seen before!

    Johnny will once again have to pick up the whisk and skillet, but will his eroded skills be enough to get them out of the craziest cook-off in the Universe?

    And what good is a spatula against space ninjas?

    I'd feel better about it if the incoming writer was a known quantity, but as long as the book retains the tone of the series and doesn't go off on any stupid tangents, I can live with it. Speaking of Hudlin, I really want him to talk with Grevioux about doing more with the Blue Marvel.

    When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    My comic shop got one of those post card ads that featured the Dark Avengers/Uncanny X-men "Utopia" crossover that starts next month. Seems like there's 12 issues total with the one-shot in June being part one and DA/UXM being parts 2-6. 2 issues of Legacy also tie-in along with the 3 standalone origin issues of the Dark X-men. Finally there's a "Confession" issue (uh-oh) as an epilogue. I'm still deciding whether I want to just trade wait or get the issues in singles.

    I'd pick up the first issue only for the Silvestri art, then wait.

    Fraction is writing the Uncanny and Dark Avengers issues, so you have to be careful, and see if he's using his "Uncanny" persona to write it (which is bad) or his "Invincible Iron Man" persona (which is very good).

    I like Miller, but I think the "summer blockbuster" description his work so often gets is pretty accurate. He loves taking huge things and injecting explosions and surprise death into them.

    The theme for “Captain America” #600 is “Where were you when Captain America was shot?” Explained Brevoort, “We'll be cutting all around the Marvel Universe to get a wide variety of perspectives and stories, as the anniversary of Cap's death is about to hit. Pretty much all of the main players in the series will be on hand, including Bucky, Natasha, The Falcon, and Sharon, as well as the Avengers (both New and Dark), Patriot of the Young Avengers, Crossbones and Sin, the Red Skull, and Rikki Barnes.”

    ...

    Additionally, readers will learn more about the aforementioned 1950s Cap in “Captain America” #600. Brevoort also revealed the issue will provide some clues about Sharon Carter's dream in issue #49, in which she flashed back to her time as a captive of the Red Skull, when she apparently saw someone with a device that resembled Doctor Doom's time machine. Was this someone Steve Rogers? Only time will tell.

    Oh, speaking of which. I saw something for that Reborn thing Brubaker and Hitch are doing.

    I don't care about Ultimatum, and by all appearances neither does Hitch. But I'd be super pissed if he pawns this off to do more strawberry shortcake painting.

    Oh, so Joe Quinones -- the artist for Wednesday Comics GL.

    He did an interview with Nrama, and has worked on Caped, Teen Titans Go!, Hack/Slash, and a bunch of other freelance/commission stuff. I like this:
    Spoiler:


    Back to previews or preview nonsense or something. DiDio did his thing today again. About that pulp heroes mashup pic.
    3. Moving on to the teaser art that was revealed last week showing Doc Savage...what can you say about that, and your plans for the character – not to mention that The Spirit was shown to be in that image, along with Blackhawk...

    DD: We’re working with a series of characters that fit within that genre, and we’re exploring their...interactions, to be slightly coy about it. We have several projects on the burners right now, and it’s a little early to start discussing them, but the chances to see Doc Savage encountering The Spirit, Blackhawk, and other characters with that same tone and sensibility is being actively pursued. It’s something we’ll be seeing in the latter half of this year. The best part of it is that the overarching story is something that’s being written by Brian Azzarello.

    About Batman:
    From the fan perspective, we all know that there’s something going on with Bruce Wayne. So therefore, we’re going to see reflections of the Bruce Wayne story, the Batman story as it plays out in the DC Universe in all of the Batman books and reflections of it in Blackest Night. The fan knows – or the fans might guess – that was not Batman’s body that was recovered as a skeleton in Final Crisis #6, but nobody else knows that. Part of the year we have coming ahead of us is the exploration of what that means to the DC Universe – what that body represents, and more importantly, what actually happened to Bruce Wayne, and the mystery surrounding him.
    10. Given that is has been used so...heavily in the DCU, will “death” still be as strong as a story point after Blackest Night as it was before?

    DD: Following Blackest Night, I think that death is a trick we will not be using very often – or at all for a long, long time. There is a finality of what goes on in Blackest Night, and there is an explanation of the “revolving door” sense of death in the DCU that’s part of the Blackest Night storyline.

    Regarding 52 and Mark Waid's recent ain't it cool interview:
    DD : The concept that I am not proud of 52 is ridiculous. Anybody here who knows me knows that the minute issue #52 of 52 hit my hands was one of my proudest moments at DC Comics. It's something that I was involved in from the very inception of the project, and made sure that everything worked perfectly in order to achieve that. It was a project and process that we all worked for. It was the editors, the sales department, the marketing department, the production department. Every single person who worked on 52 is intensely proud of their work on that production. When we started it, we were not sure if we were going to be able to achieve our goals, and we exceeded them.

    If he was so proud of it why did he spoil it in his DC Nation halfway through the series, when people really didn't know what 52 would be? People who pour there heart into something don't really spoil it halfway through. I take Waid's side on this argument, truth be told.


    And as a sidenote, I've noticed Matt Brady is becoming a little more bitchy and dismissive to the readers and there questions or comments, just lumping them all together as rabid fanboys. It's popped up in other articles he's done (like the Kevin Smith Green Hornet/Batman one where he tries to justify a 6 month delay), and has made me just go to the site less and less.
