Neil Gaiman, the co-creator of Sandman, Neverwhere, Mirror Mask, and Good Omens, author of American Gods, Coraline and Norse Mythology, writer on Babylon 5, Doctor Who, and so many more, is joining Armando Iannucci, the co-creator of On The Hour, The Day Today, Alan Partridge, the author of Saturday Night Armistice, Gash, Time Trumpet, Veep, Avenue 5, and author of Pandemonium,
Jonathan Hickman, Dan Slott, Ho Che Anderson, Kurt Busiek, Anthony Falcone, Rainbow Rowell, Jim Cheung, Olivier Coipel, Michael Cho, and Terry Dodson join the team.
Amazing Fantasy, the anthology book that is best known for producing Spider-in its final issue, is already doing work for Marvel, concluding his Miracleman stories with Mark Buckingham (who I''ll be seeing at Lake Como Comic Art Festival tomorrow). Dan Slott has already revealed himself as a big The Thick Of Itfan. There was also a Alex Ross cover for Amazing Spider-Man #5 that had to be amended due to copyright concerns.
While Armando Iannucci narrated the documentary Comics Britannia on the history of the British comic, he signed in Forbidden Planet, and of course The Death Of Stalin was based on a comic book. And now writing something "Amazing" for Marvel Comics. Another reason for Stewart Lee to grind his teeth
There is a possibility that Ho Che Anderson''s comic book series Luke Cage City Of Fire could be published on Marvel, and he was not happy. Has bridges been broken there?
It may be noted that Marvel only brings Jonathan Hickman back for very interesting projects it''s all looking good for August!
