Fall is upon us but while Secret Wars and it’s many tie in’s sit in delay purgatory for the time being, Marvel is once again relaunching it’s superhero line with a whole bunch of #1 issues for their comics. With that said, the publisher is moving from a different position than they were in with Marvel Now & All New Marvel Now. With the former, Marvel had a lot of young creative talent that they were able to re-position during the relaunch to give their line a fresh make over and give creators they had brought up on their lower tier titles a higher profile like Jonathan Hickman, Jerome Opena, Esad Ribic, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Jason Aaron or Rick Remender. After Marvel Now was a success, they added several new talents into their fold by building off the success of the original relaunch, giving creators like Ales Kot, Tradd Moore, Michael Walsh, Felipe Smith or Michel Fiffe their first shot at a major comics launch with the publisher. Now, much of the talent from both those initiatives has moved on from the publisher. In their place, Marvel has new creators coming on from all sorts of different mediums in addition to some of their old standby’s like Brian Michael Bendis, Mark Waid or Greg Land, and they are publishing a lot of comics. Probably too many. Below is a list of all the announced new series categorized into grouping of Yay, Mayhaps or Nah like we did with Secret Wars. Keep in mind that I won’t be including series that are basically the same creative talent and that Marvel will surely have more books to announce in the months ahead.
The Marvel Comics supervillain team Squadron Sinister is formidable. Created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Sal Buscema and debuting in The Avengers #69 (Oct. 1969), the evil team members were based on DC Comics characters: the Superman-inspired Hyperion, the Batman-esque Nighthawk, the Flash-like Whizzer, etc.
The creative team on the Marvel Comics Secret Wars tie-in Squadron Sinister – writer Marc Guggenheim and artists Carlos Pacheco, Mariano Taibo, and Frank Martin – remind readers just how powerful, evil, and scary these characters are.
At Nothing But Comics, we were curious to know which Squadron Sinister character Guggenheim thought was the scariest, so we dispatched superhero the Red Bee to ask him.
