|Marvel Comics announces that X-23 #1 has completely sold out -- a new printing with a variant cover by Billy Tan is scheduled to hit store shelves on February 23rd, the same day as X-23 #3.|
Says Sales and Marketing Manager David Gabriel, "Going back to press on X-23 #1 is an absolute no-brainer. The issue blew right out, even with a significant overprinting on issue #1, and unfilled backorders are already mounting. Thanks so much to the fans and retailers for such strong support of this 'Marvel Next' title. On a related note, we'll also have some news on fan-favorite NYX within the next few days. "
Written by Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost, and spinning out of NYX, the "Innocence Lost" arc tells the full story behind the origin of X-23 - who she is, where she comes from, and the exact nature of her relationship to Wolverine.
"This book was a real dream come true for Chris and I, and having the first issue sell out is beyond our wildest expectations. This was our first gig in comics and to have our first book sell out...it's just too awesome for words," says Craig Kyle.
Chris Yost adds, "I just can't wait for everyone to see issue three."
The limited edition variant printing of X-23 #1 is timed to go on sale the same day as X-23 #3, February 23, 2005. Retailers can place orders for both through Thursday, February 3rd. The new cover for issue #1 by Bill Tan will be available for viewing next week!

Readers will learn one of these secrets at the end of issue #1, which will plunge the team into its first epic adventure...and each issue thereafter will unveil further information as to who these kids are and what they're about -- it should make for a satisfying ride for Marvel fans old and new."

I can say no more lest I find Nick Fury waiting for me in a dark alley."
Fans can now view the first eight pages of YOUNG AVENGERS #1 on Marvel's official site at http://www.marvel.com/company/showarticle.htm?id=56
|Mark Bagley Sticks to Crawling the Walls with Marvel Comics - 18/01/2005|
|Fan-favorite Spider-Man artist Mark Bagley has extended his exclusive contract with Marvel Comics, re-confirming his ties with the company he's called home since the beginning of his comic book career.|
"I'm enjoying my working situation more every day I'm with Marvel," said the prolific penciller. "I'm working with a terrific creative team and have wonderful support from both editorial and the big guys upstairs. A commitment from Marvel is a hell of a compliment. I've had an incredibly stable and fulfilling career with Marvel, and I'm as happy with the company now as I've ever been. And I think the contract means they are just as happy with me."
Marvel Publisher Dan Buckley is more than delighted with Bagley's work and his long-time association with the company. "I'm blown away by the length of Mark's tenure on Spidey's books. He's outdistanced both Steve Ditko and John Romita Sr. in that respect and he's at least equaled them in putting a definitive and unique stamp on the character."
"We know a good thing when we see it, and we want Mark to know we love him and appreciate the incredible time and energy he puts into the Marvel characters," said Joe Quesada, Marvel Editor-in-Chief. "We're proud he got his start right here...he's our Marvel Boy!"

We're getting tremendous praise for these new WHAT IF... books, and each issue has had thousands of backorders. No doubt about it, this project was a huge success...thanks so much to the creators and editor C.B. Cebulski for such great work!"
"I've been a WHAT IF fan for as long as I can remember. When I first proposed bringing the title back, I was worried people would think I was crazy, but much to my surprise, everyone here at Marvel enthusiastically embraced the idea.," said Cebulski. "I never thought we would be able to secure the level of talent we did on the books either. I found out WHAT IF was a concept that was near and dear to so many of our writers and artists. I think their love of WHAT IF clearly shines through in all the stories and the fan response has been nothing short of amazing! Hopefully we'll be able to come back and do this again real soon!"

The two Gregs have handed in one of my most favorite miniseries here at Marvel and I'm so happy it's been this well received. Great concept, great story, great creators: win/win/win for the fans!"
