Not a lot of news out of the Mondo Marvel panel at the San Diego Comic-Con (most of the big news came out of Marvel’s Cup O’ Joe panel). Marvel Mondo was mostly about answering fans questions and teasing some new stuff. The panel started off with some funny screens introducing the panel guests, as Marvel always likes to have a lot of fun at their panels.
We did get some news out of it…
Rick Remender will be writing a new on-going series featuring the new Sorceror Supreme, titled Doctor Voodoo: Avenger of the Supernatural (no one asked what Doctor Voodoo has a PHD in).
Captain America/Black Panther: Flags of Our Fathers will be written by Reginald Hudlin with art by Dennis Cowel and will show what happens in the past with a meeting between Cap and the previous Black Panther.
November will bring a new attitude to the Marvel Adventures line, keeping the done in one stories, but adding more subplots and making them a bit more cohesive as a line. It will be a great jumping on point for new readers who have not checked out the more kid-friendly line.
Old news is that Andy Diggle will be taking over on Daredevil (artwork will be by Roberto De La Torre) starting in September. Diggle will take over from Ed Brubaker, who will be leaving the book with a big change. Diggle will bring a different tone to the series, and Editor in Chief Joe Quesada says that De La Torre will be one of the next big artists.
Also previously announced, but repeated at the Con, Jason Aaron will be taking over the Punisher MAX series and will be joined by Steve Dillon on art duties. Aaron jokingly remarked that this will be a book for the whole family, so long as your families name is Manson. The story will be one sprawling multi arc story and will feature the MAX version of Wilson Fisk and Bullseye.
Other things revealed from the Q&A session:
Mark Waid will be writing a mini focusing on Dr. Strange, now that he’s not the Sorceror Supreme.
Jeph Loeb revealed that he once had a story for Teen Wolf 3, which would have featured Alyssa Milano as a white wolf hockey player. (He said that was not a joke answer.)
Allen Heinberg is currently writing a new Young Avengers story.
There is a story in place to reveal some of the mystery behind the Spider-Man: One More Day. No release date for it yet.
