The Press Release:
Marvel Entertainment is excited to announce that artist Pat Gleason will bring his distinctive style and ideas to Marvel in an exclusive agreement!
One of the most versatile creators in the comic industry, Gleason has lent his talent to numerous DC, Marvel, and Image properties over the years, helping to produce multiple New York Times best-selling books including Batman And Robin, Aquaman, Green Lantern Corps, JLA, and Welcome To The Working Week with Patton Oswalt.

Cebulski. “I’m thrilled that the stars have now aligned and Pat’s joined us in the hallowed halls of the House of ideas. Trust me, the contributions he’s going to make to our comics are going to mind-blowing!” Continue reading Marvel Announces Exclusive Agreement with Pat Gleason→
Hey there readers and welcome to our Media Month of May. I generally say “Metal Month Of May” but that is for the musical reports and not the Pop Culture stuff. So before I get started I need to ask you readers if you have seen “Avengers: Endgame” yet or not. I just saw it this past Monday and was blown away by the spectacle and how they closed up the first chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I will not spoil it for any of you of course but do your best to avoid the social networks and pretty much anything that shares news because there are spoilers everywhere. Now let’s get down to business with the May first issues and special editions coming from the Marvel Comics side of the fence.
SAVAGE AVENGERS #1: The most savage, most unkillable team of characters in the Marvel Universe is assembled! Wolverine! Venom! Elektra! Punisher! And in their midst – Conan the Barbarian! Conan has returned to the Marvel Universe and his new adventures begin here. What is the City of Sickles? Who is the Marrow God? How is the Hand involved? The roughest and most dangerous characters rumble through this new title starting with…Conan vs. Wolverine? ’Nuff said.

WAR OF THE REALMS STRIKEFORCE: THE DARK ELF REALM #1: THE PUNISHER LEADS THE CHARGE TO SHUT DOWN THE BLACK BIFROST! Deep in the swamps of Svartalfheim stands the Black Bifrost, Malekith’s corrupted Rainbow Bridge and the only reliable means of travel between the realms with the true Bifrost in pieces. If the gods are going to stop Malekith’s invasion, the Black Bridge must fall. With her son missing and husband injured, Lady Freyja must take up the challenge herself. But she won’t go alone. Hulk (Jen Walters), the Punisher, Blade and Ghost Rider follow the All-Mother of Asgard straight into Malekith’s home territory!
