All-New, All-Different [Superhero Thread]: Howard the Duck gets a new hat!

edited June 2015 in Social Entropy++
So Marvel is going to be spilling the beans on their upcoming, post-Secret Wars relaunch in an "All-New, All-Different Marvel Previews" print magazine set to arrive in comic shops on July 1, but in the meantime they've been releasing info and promos.  The biggest thing they've emphasized is that it is not a reboot.
 
So far they've put out some images of prominent characters from the relaunch  The first is fairly predictable, and seems to be building off the pre-Secret Wars status quo

(Left to Right: Spider-Gwen, Spider-Man, Vision, Ultimate Spider-Man, Coulson, Spider-Woman, Black Panther, Captain America (Sam Wilson), Steve Rogers (Still Old), Iron Man, new Thor, Ant-Man, Ms. Marvel and Red Wolf.)
 
The Second is a LOT more interesting

(Left to Right: Dr. Spectrum (Last surviving member of the Justice League analog known as the Great Society), Rocket Raccoon, Hyperion (likely the Hyperion from Hickman's Avengers run), Daredevil, Dr. Strange (Battle Axe!!), Citizen V (Most known for being Baron Zemo's secret identity when he created the Thunderbolts), the Thing (sporting Guardians of the Galaxy duds), Karnak (of the Inhumans; Not Doom), Inferno (from the recent Inhumans ongoing), Iron Man again, Medusa, Wolverine (X-23), Star-Lord and Old Man Logan.
 
Also they recently spilled the beans about the new Invincible Iron Man; it'll be written by Bendis and drawn by Marquez, and the person taking up the armor will be
Tony Stark.

More updates to come, including a new Hulk and more about the mutants.

Also, DC is doing some stuff and Superhero movies are coming out, whatever. I can't sleep and I need to leave for work in three hours. :razz:

    Catching up on agents of SHIELD. Up to episode 9 of season 2.
    I am predicting that this is how they introduce Inhumans. The blue alien that makes the serum, I called as a Kree before the reveal, and by the time they figure out they are looking for a city, it totally makes sense that Reina and the Chinese lady that stays young are possibly the first Inhumans. Maybe Skye as well.

    Blake does not agree, but I am absolutely willing to bet I'm right. It's kinda awesome knowing there's an Inhumans movie in the works and it looks like this show is setting up for it in a big way.

    If there ANYTHING MISTY AT ALL that appears in the next few episodes I am going to squee. And accuse Blake of benig a fake geek guy.

    So Talking About Comics, a site I have literally never heard of before, says the new Hulk is going to be
    Amadeus Cho and the reason people are gonna freak out when his silhouette is because he's not gonna be all muscle-y and huge, he will remain scrawny and his solo book will be by Greg Pak and Frank Cho.

    I am incredibly skeptical and probably wouldn't buy it because I don't want to support Frank Cho but that sounds interesting

    That writer writing that character sells me 100% it would not matter who is drawing.

    And while Cho is an asshat I also think he draws good so I will be totally ok.

    Besides Cho will be off that book after 4 issues for someone who can keep a schedule.

    I agree he is talented artist and Pak is a wonderful writer but I don't want to support Frank Cho at all after his horrible horrible response during the whole bullshit with his sketches

    Fair, but to me supporting Pak and that character not to mention
    an all Asian American creative team launching what will now be Marvel's most prominent Asian American character ever

    far far outweighs that

    So I've been reading Chris Sim's articles of the IDW Transformers books and he just recently finished reading Vol 4 of More than Meets the Eye.

    It's so great seeing people new to the series genuinely enjoy the books as much as I do. Can't wait to see what he thinks of vol 5.

    Admittedly I have not read all her Transformer articles, but I have read that the one mentioned in the article and her interview with Alex Milne where he talked about his support of female transformer.

    Speaking of which, my 2 year old insisted on sitting in my lap and having me read The Trial of Jean Grey to him because he saw me reading it. A young comic book fan is in the making! Note, I made up words as I read along because it's a little too heavy for a 2 year old.

    On that note, any suggestions for young kids?

    Owly is great for very young kids. The lack of actual dialogue means you can tailor the story to how the child will best understand it, and then as they get older they can piece it together themselves.

    Art and Franco's run on Magic of Shazam with Mike Norton is also one of my favorite kids titles, but I don't think their entire run was collected.

    @DoctorArch the first trade of She-Hulk might be fun to read together! Not 100% sure how it would hold up for a two year old, but the art is colorful and simplistic and the story mostly features her beating up doombots, there's very little scary violence.
    Also a monkey!

    I would not refer the second trade to a two year old, though!

    Look for stuff branded Marvel Adventures. That was a really good line of all-ages comics Marvel put out for a while in the mid-late 2000s.

    There was also a series of Power Pack miniseries for kids around that time that are good stuff.
