You've heard that ANNIHILATION: CONQUEST rocks – the guy at the comic shop keeps telling you to try NOVA – well, now's your chance to experience the glory that writers Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning and artist Paul Pelletier can unleash! All this…plus a wise-cracking raccoon and a telepathic dog!
    C'mon, people, time to lock and load!

    Oh shit, COSMO?!

    I'm really starting to like Marvel Adventures better than the actual Marvel properties that they are based on. MA Hulk looks like it will continue to be great.

    So this would be the guy before the guy before Orson Randall.

    I must have missed that. Could you show me that? That would be the guy before the Boxer rebellion Iron Fist, right?

    Going by time period. If this one ends in 1860, Orson can't be next, cause he'd be too old.

    I thought so too at first, but he wears blue in the Ultimate Universe, doesn't he? Unless he's had a redesign, of course.

    What shit? The dude hasn't shown up since Civil War: Front Line, for two pages.

    Unless you're thinking of the Prodigy from X-Men.

    Full solicits are up now.

    And holy shit, not only does the first Bendis Daredevil Omnibus come out in May, they are also releasing a hardcover of the old Kitty Pride & Wolverine mini-series.

    I just saw the God Loves, Man Kills HC last night. I was so pissed I went with only five bucks. Oh, well. Yet another book to look forward to.

    IMMORTAL IRON FIST #15
    Written by MATT FRACTION
    Pencils & Cover by KHARI EVANS
    TALES OF THE IRON FIST! When we last saw Bei Bang-Wen, he was leaping to what seemed to be a certain death off the top of the Taku Forts -- would you believe us if we told you that was only the beginning? Join us as we take a look at another one of the fabulous Iron Fists of years past and his legendary legacy in “The Story of the Iron Fist Bei Bang-Wen -- The Perfect Strategy Mind and his Miraculous Travels to the Dark Continent, and What Mysteries of the World and of the Self that He Learned There (1827-1860)” By Matt Fraction and Khari Evans!

    There we go, all in one place, for the simple-minded fools. ;-)

    is Aja not on the book anymore? Or is that just cause it's one of the "other" IF one shot stories?

    They've historically gone with other artists to tell non-Danny stories, even if it's in the same issue, so I'd guess this is no different than the Wu Ao Shi issue.

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

    But this whole "bringing over French comics" thing sounds interesting.
