During the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo today, Marvel Comics has announcedHoward The Human #1, a Secret Wars one-shot written by Skottie Young.

But that doesn’t mean Howard will have a ho-hum adventure. The former fowl will see plenty of cases as a private investigator, all while dodging bullets and crossing paths with a murderous anthropomorphic animal. Or, as Howard calls it, Monday.

may seem like it just started, but it's already halfway through production, according to star Ryan Reynolds.
While the average superhero epic tends to take much longer than that, some smaller movies like Kick-Ass
and Sin City
have had similarly-short production windows.
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.Directed by Tim Miller, the film stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein and Gina Carano.
It will be in U.S. theaters February 12, 2016.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRONí OPENS TO MASSIVE $201.2 MILLION AT FOREIGN BOX OFFICE04/26/15 @ 5:56 pm EST
Wrestler-turned-comic author CM Punk will follow his story in "Thor Annual" #1 with his very own ongoing series. Marvel today announced at C2E2 that the soon-to-debut UFC fighter (and Chicago native) will be co-writing the adventures of the Guardians of the Galaxy's most vicious member, Drax. Punk's co-writer has yet to be named.
Coming in winter 2015, "Drax" will also be the first solo series for the green-skinned Destroyer. Details on the story are currently thin, though it's said to follow Drax from "the intergalactic octagon to the far reaches of outer space." Ed McGuinness has illustrated the cover for issue #1, which you can see below, and the interior artist is expected to be named soon.
Besides the "Thor Annual," CM Punk has also turned in a tale for DC/Vertigo's "Strange Sports Stories." "Drax" marks his first full-length, continuing story. (Source: CBR)

HULK SMASHES ON ROLLING STONE'S NEW COVER04/26/15 @ 5:49 pm EST
“Avengers: Age of Ultron” debuted to a massive $201.2 million across 44 territories this weekend.
Disney and Marvel’s super team adventure was the highest-grossing film in everywhere it opened, and has now rolled out in 55% of the international marketplace, including such major locales as France, Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, Russia, Korea and Australia.
Going into the weekend, Disney was projecting a foreign debut of between $160 million to $175 million.
“The bar was high, but this is a sign of unbelievable momentum in the marketplace,” said Dave Hollis, Disney’s distribution chief. “It all goes back to the strength of the brand and the incredible work the Marvel team does in telling stories in such a consistent way and creating these worlds.”
The hotly anticipated superhero sequel opens next week in the U.S., where it is expected to earn north of $200 million and could top the first “Avengers” film’s record-breaking $207.4 million bow. Bringing Thor, Iron Man, Captain America and other costumed heroes together isn’t cheap, and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” carries a $250 million pricetag.
The success of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is a testament to the strength of the global market, which now accounts for 70% or more of a major film’s box office gross. Two decades ago, foreign ticket sales usually comprised less than half of a movie’s revenues.
“We are living in rarefied air with ‘Avengers’ to be even talking about these kind of numbers,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. “A weekend like this is why a lot of people think it could be even bigger than the first one.”

DF SATURDAY NIGHT REVIEW: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #2604/25/15 @ 9:12 pm EST
He's big, he's green, he's ill-tempered – and for the first time since 1971, he's on the cover of Rolling Stone
. As the cover story puts it: "The Hulk is the breakout star of the Avengers
movies, breaking stuff for all us sinners, hulking out for every hung-up person in the whole wide universe."
So the new issue, on stands now, goes deep on both the Hulk and the real people in his sizable shadow. Senior Writer Brian Hiatt hung out in New York with Mark Ruffalo, who plays Bruce Banner (and via motion-capture, the Hulk) in May 1st's The Avengers: Age of Ultron
and on Disney's Burbank lot with Joss Whedon, the movie's writer and director. Hulk co-creator Stan Lee and Incredible Hulk
TV show executive producer Kenneth Johnson, among others, also chime in.
Here are some highlights from the story:It took Whedon a while to realize where he got the idea for Bruce Banner's "I'm always angry" line in The Avengers:
"I thought, ‘This feels psychologically true, like somebody could be like that,' " Whedon says. "And then about four months after the movie came out, something happened and I just lost my s**t. I was like, 'Oh! It's about me!'"Ruffalo feels that the Hulk comes into his own as a character in the new movie.
"Now, Hulk is doing some acting," Ruffalo says. "He's not just raging. He's transitioning in and out of Banner, and that has its own inner life to it. We haven't even started to get into who the Hulk really is, what makes him tick. What is he fighting? What is he struggling against? What is he afraid of? We're only scratching the surface of it." Ruffalo had doubts about playing the Hulk and Banner.
"I was scared, a little bit," he says. He was impressed with Robert Downey Jr.'s left-field Tony Stark, which "opened the way for this kind of indie character-actor approach, totally off the radar of what you would consider to be your classic movie star. And I thought, 'Can I do that? Can I be as clever and charming and facile?' It was like, 'Downey!'"There was a reason that the Hulk never spoke on the Seventies TV show.
Lou Ferrigno was hearing-impaired and, executive producer Kenneth Johnson notes, "had 14 years of speech therapy, but it was all in Brooklyn. And do we really need him to say, 'Hulk smash?' It's like, hello, duh!" (Source: Rolling Stone)

By BYRON BREWER The Black Vortex
, which may have lasted just a tad too long (no wonder that Celestial left, he had been waiting long enough, lol) has now run its course and the admittedly admirable voting style of the Spartax population comes back into play as Peter Quill accepts his job as king (president?) of that planet/empire. (If only Kosmic Kitty had left them in amber!)
Brian Michael Bendis really has developed a hand and a voice for these heroes, despite internet gripes. (C’mon, guys, DnA are not even DnA anymore!) The comedy in this comic extended beyond Rocket’s ever-varying curses to arguments of which Elder of the Universe is which and a cornered Quill using his new power to take the Guardians along with him as his “Cabinet.”
Kitty Pryde is in no way idol as she tries to bring herself into the customs of possibly being First Lady of Spartax as well as introducing Peter to the intricacies of having a Jewish mother-in-law.
Spartax under artist Valerio Schiti looks vast, expansive and hi-tech, and I must admit the alien crowd scenes really look great! We have seen brilliant space opera scripts torn down by bad art. In Guardians of the Galaxy
#26, both art and script are strong.
I must admit I do not know where GotG – or the rest of the present Marvel Universe – will be when the fights are done on Battleworld. I DO know Bendis is doing Guardians of Knowhere
and that is where I will be for the nonce.
In the meantime, #26 is a great issue and at your LCS now. Pick it up!
