Marvel's Universe Online - 20/09/2002
The pervasive Marvel Universe is about to go virtual thanks to a new deal with Vivendi Universal. The 10-year deal, which grants Vivendi the right to include the entire library of more than 4,700 Marvel characters in a virutal persistent universe, will have all the favorite Marvel heroes (such as Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk and The X-Men) available for the first time in an Online Massively Multi-Player (OLMMP) format in 2005!

"We believe there are only a few franchises existing today that are compelling enough to be a leader in the massively multi-player games market and Marvel's universe of superheroes is clearly one of them," said Ken Cron, Chairman and CEO of Vivendi Universal Games. "Marvel's enduring characters and fantasy-based storylines appeal to millions of fans worldwide. Its audience spans several generations and includes legions of consumers devoted to its comic books, TV shows and blockbuster movies. The combination of Marvel's strong character franchises with VU Games' global development and marketing capabilities is good news for both companies and great news for gamers."

If that's not enough to get you chomping at the bit, VU Games has also obtained the rights to release titles in multiple languages across all existing and future platforms enabling OLMMP game play, including PCs and console-based systems. (Read More)

Weapon X #1 Preview - 18/09/2002
ZENtertainment has posted a great preview of the first issue of Marvel's new WEAPON X series. "WEAPON X launches on the strength of Frank Tieri's writing, continuing the same suspenseful, go-for-the-jugular style which has continually kept his WOLVERINE run on the top-seller list," said series editor Mike Marts. "Only this time, Frank does the unexpected and applies his skill of writing stories about heroes and spins it in a different direction -- toward the savage squad of evil agents that make up the Weapon X team!"

Check out a preview of the artwork from the WEAPON X series debut "Hunt For Sabretooth" here.

Crossgen to Lower Price, Reformat Compendia Series - 13/09/2002
In a recent press-release, CrossGen Comics have announced that they will be reformatting and lowering the price of upcoming volumes of their Compendia Series starting with Forge #9 and Edge #9. Going forward, all Compendia will be printed at 5 3/8" x 8 3/16", contain approximately 192 pages, and cost $7.95 US.
"This smaller trim size and lower price," said Ian M. Feller, Crossgen's media and press consultant, "compares favorably to a standard paperback, provides significantly more value than a standard graphic novel and is a comfortable purchase for mainstream readers."
Crossgen's Compendia series enables regular readers to get the equivalent of seven to eight single issues for the price of less than three of the single issue format. The new smaller size should also make carrying, transporting, and displaying both Forge and Edge easier, and still be more durable than a single-issue comic. (Read More)

What's The Frequency Warren? - 9/09/2002
Have you been wondering what writer Warren Ellis has been up to since his works on hits like TRANSMETROPOLITAN, THE AUTHORITY and PLANETARY? Well, wonder no longer. DC Comics has announced that in coming months Wildstorm Productions will be bringing us two new Ellis mini-series: GLOBAL FREQUENCY and MEK.
"I don't think 'excited' even begins to cover our feelings about having two new Warren Ellis projects on tap," says WildStorm Group Editor Scott Dunbier. "Warren's one of the best writers to hit comics in a long time. His take on whatever genre he touches, from super heroes to horror to science fiction has really raised the industry's bars on creativity and originality."
