Wizard World Chicago News Part II

Here's some of more news we culled from the web today. Visit Newsarama as they seem to have
the most complete information out there if need to know more.

*Depending on sales of 52, DC may try another weekly comic. Although we aren't currently pick it up, we probably will pick up the trades.

*Civil War impacted the start of the Brian Michael Bendis/Alex Maleev Spider-Woman ongoing series. Look for that some early in 2007.

*Jeph Loeb and Michael Turner on Ultimate Wolverine. Over the years, I've heard a lot of complaints about the number of books he's in. Currently, he's in Wolverine, Wolverine: Origins, New Avengers, Astonishing X-Men, X-Men, and Ultimate X-Men, not to mention all of this guest appearances and miniseries. I may be missing some too. This is now officially too many.

*Marvel editorial is looking at the possibility of a Luke Cage solo series. As long as there is lots of Jessica Jones, then all will be well. Additionally, a Thor solo series may be in the future.

*An upcoming issue of Action Comics written by Geoff Johns and Richard Donner may be in 3-D.

*Marvel editorial continues to look for ways for Peter Parker/Spidey to be single again without killing or divorcing Mary Jane. Good luck with that.

*Watch for Demon in Shadowpact, Arsenal and John Stewart in Green Lantern, Jason Todd/Red Hood in Green Arrow, and Phantom Stranger in Blue Beetle.

*Civil War will impact Moon Knight with issue #8.

*Still no word on when Kevin Smith's Daredevil: Target will be completed. Come on guys this is YEARS late. Question for Smith: Why take a project when you can't finish it OR why not MAKE time to do it? Question for Marvel: Why are you still stringing us along. Which reminds us, has Dardevil: Father ever wrapped up? Speaking of late books, the final issues of Ultimate Hulk/Wolverine are being written.

*Chris Claremont's recovery continues and even visited the Marvel offices recently. Watch for new Claremont-penned issues of Exiles and New Excalibur beginning in January.
