|The Rawhide Kid Rides Again - 10/12/2002|
|The NY Post has is running an article on The Rawhide Kid, who made his comics debut in the 1950s and will soon be blasting his way out of the closet. The Kid will be revealed as a gay gunslinger in a new series that Marvel editor in chief Joe Quesada has dubbed "the first gay Western". The Marvel honcho said the Kid won't make any pronouncements about his sexual orientation but promised readers will "know it from the moment you see him." |
"It's a classic Western, like ‘Shane,' but with a gay twist," said series writer Ron Zimmerman. While the story has "a comedic slant," Zimmerman said he hopes the 21st-century kid is "an empowering character that the gay community would be able to embrace."
|Gilbert Hernandez Speaks - 6/12/2002|
|THE COMICS JOURNAL AUDIO ARCHIVES, a monthly online selection of interviews culled from the massive library of audiotapes accumulated by the magazine in the course of its 26-year history, continues with this month's MP3s from issue #126 from 1989 -- just over an hour of excerpts from GARY GROTH's interview with GILBERT HERNANDEZ, one-third of the creative team behind the comic book that launched a thousand indy comics, LOVE AND ROCKETS. Gilbert discusses his comics-obsessed childhood, his influences, the "Heartbreak Soup" stories, drawing, how he creates his stories... even a word or two about why The Comics Journal's bad attitude gets people so riled up. The address is: http://www.tcj.com/listen/listen.html|
Please note that these files will be removed on December 13, to make room for the next archival excerpt.
|Marvel Ultimate Sweeps a Near December Sweep - 5/12/2002|
|Two months ago Marvel designated December 2002 "ULTIMATE SWEEPS MONTH" - a key month where Marvel's most accessible series - led by the debut of ULTIMATE WAR - would all begin new storylines or contain important events, presenting retailers with the opportunity to introduce the industry's most popular series to new readers. |
It turns out the "Sweeps" designation was not only descriptive but prophetic, as December's ULTIMATE titles nearly swept Diamond's TOP TEN Sales Chart for the month.
The chart charge was led, of course, but the first two issues of Mark Millar and Chris Bachalo's ULTIMATE WAR limited series, pitting the Ultimate X-Men against The Ultimates. ULTIMATE WAR #1 & 2 finished #1 and #2 respectively on the Top Ten chart, giving Marvel the distinction of being the LAST publisher to pull off the rare feat of placing consecutive issues of one title with the same creative team in the top two positions (during 1996's 'Heroes Reborn' era) and the LATEST.
|X-Statix #6: Love, Conflict and Xavier - 3/12/2002|
|Love, danger, inner team turmoil and a guest-starring role by one of the most powerful mutants on the planet. What more could a Marvel fan want from an X-title? |
X-Statix readers will get them all beginning in December's X-STATIX #6, when the critically-acclaimed creative team of Peter Milligan and Mike Allred begin "The Moons of Venus", a new, three-part story arc that serves as a great "jumping-on" point for the series and introduces new complications for the mutant media stars.
According to editor Axel Alonso, those new complications involve a "new and lethal enemy for the team; a budding attraction/love within the team; and an appearance by none other than Professor X, who plays a pivotal role in the story."
Check out the following preview pages for a taste of the action and then head over to http://dotcomics.marvel.com/lib/launchissue.php?issue=141 for the full eight-page DOTCOMICS preview.

|Second Hopeless Savages Outing Grounded As One Trade - 26/11/2002|
|This March, the Hopeless-Savage family will muscle its way into yet another slot on the bookshelves with their second trade paperback collection, HOPELESS SAVAGES: GROUND ZERO (click here for a four page preview). Written by Jen Van Meter (BATMAN: GOLDEN STREETS OF GOTHAM) and illustrated by Bryan O’Malley (ONI PRESS COLOR SPECIAL 2002), this four-part series focuses on the travails of the youngest daughter, Zero, as her first crush runs headlong into a string of bad luck that gets her grounded.|
“Zero kind of stepped to the forefront of the book by narrating the first story line,” Van Meter commented, “and I liked her perspective so much, I wanted to stick with it. Plus, she’s the sibling that, as far as the present time is concerned, is the one growing and developing as a person. This allows us to focus on a main story about her learning experiences, and then draw on the pasts of the other characters to provide object lessons about what she is going through.”
|Austen & Asamiya Show Their Dominance - 24/11/2002|
|UNCANNY X-MEN's new regular creative team of writer Chuck Austen and manga superstar artist Kia Asamiya begin their first story arc together this January in "Dominant Species". |
The storyline not only gives readers a look at new team recruits Northstar and Husk in action for the first time, but it also introduces a powerful new force to the X-Men Universe.
"DOMINANT SPECIES introduces a new breed of mutants bent on destroying humankind, along with any mutant who would stand with humanity," explains editor Mike Marts. "Of course this leads them into direct conflict with the Uncanny X-Men. And the cost of this conflict WILL be enormously high."
The story kicks off in UNCANNY X-MEN #417 and continues later that month in UNCANNY X-MEN #418. A preview DotComic of the action is online right now at Marvel.com, and to wet the appetite, here's a look at the first two pages.
