WAITING FOR TOMMY: NEW YORK SPIN CITY: MARVEL & DC
By Richard Johnston

There also seems to be a little conflict between DC's left and right hands. On Mark Millar's forum, he seems to back up the rumour about he and Hitch being approached to take a Superman book, saying;

"I never like to duck a straight question, but Hitchy and I just can't comment on this right now. Yes, we've been made an outrageous offer by a major comic book company, yes, this offer has Hitchy and I on one title and myself and another famous artist on a second dream-title for me and yes, the conditions sound like they meet some of our requirements. However, this is not a done deal. Our Marvel contracts extend to September, but we already have our second year (har har!) on Ultimates planned and we love this book so f**king much."

"Regardless, ignore all rumours that Hitchy will be doing Superman or whatever with anyone else. We've spoken daily about this since the move was made for us and will only do EITHER of these two projects if we can do them as a team."

 


AVENGERS/JLA #1 - SIGNED BY GEORGE PEREZ!

The second dream title, being JLA with Carlos Pacheco. DC sources insist that Millar's bridges are still burnt, Millar hasn't been made an offer, they only want Bryan Hitch. But Hitch isn't moving.

Now it might be that someone's telling porkies. But who, and to whom, isn't clear.

Then of course there's Wizard. DC's relationship with Wizard seems to have been turned up a notch of two, with news stories being given exclusively to the magazine - something that hadn't been the case for the last few years. Which means they're often in the situation where policy has been decided but can't be released, as Wizard has a six week lead time to publication - the magazine has to be finished six weeks before it's on the comic book racks. So DC have to deny/prevaricate when it comes to comment on a story. This has been usual practice for Marvel of late, it's just harder for them to keep things under wraps.

The amusing situation gets quite farcical when the subscription copies of Wizard arrive a week earlier than the comic shop copies. Suddenly all the newshounds have copies of the stories, printed, but the companies still can't comment because the magazine hasn't been distributed to comic stores yet.

This week's announcement of Jim Lee and Brian Azzarello on Superman on WizardUniverse.com was precipitated not only by the weekend's rumours, but also that subscription copies of Wizard Zero hit the doormats, featuring the story.

It indicates that the deals have been in place for a short while, rather than the façade of very recent decisions, or even decisions that have yet to be finalised.

Then there's good old Marvel. Matt Hawes of Comics Unlimited let it be known that he was the retailer, mentioned in LITG, who wrote to Ike Perlmutter, got a call back, in which they discussed Bill Jemas. Matt tells me"
