Oh dear. It has been a while, hasn't it? My apologies.
Let us move forward, because there is much to talk about! The first being Clint's cameo in Black Widow #10.
Did it give you sufficient feels? I certainly had the feels. Following that issue, we had a fun team up between Natasha and Wolverine's protege, X-23.
The past two months also gave us another Kate-centric issue of Hawkeye
, and the first two issues of Hawkeye vs. Deadpool
, which surprisingly I enjoyed, given my usual indifference to Deadpool. It's nice to see another comic acknowledge Clint's deafness.
The past weekend also gave us much news thanks to New York Comic-Con! The first being that while Matt Fraction and David Aja's run on Hawkeye is sadly coming to a close, there will be a new Hawkeye book featuring a new creative team next March.
I'm not familiar with the new team's previous work, but people who are seem to be excited, so this is good news!
The Women of Marvel panel also provided exciting news for our favourite Marvel lady. There's going to be a Black Widow young adult novel
written by Margaret Stohl. No movie announcements, but this is still interesting, right? The Women of Marvel panel also saw the announcement of a Gamora ongoing comic written by Nicole Perlman (the initial scriptwriter for Guardians of the Galaxy
) and the announcement that G. Willow Wilson will take over writing duties for the all-female X-Men team. G. Willow Wilson is already doing a fabulous job on Ms Marvel
, so this is great news.
And to finish off this post, Phil Noto, aka the amazing artist for Black Widow
, announced that Marvel has commissioned a series of variant covers from him next year. It's great to see Noto's talent appreciated. He gave us a sneak preview of his variant covers, including one for Black Widow
. And what a cover it is.
Yes, Natasha is wearing Clint's shirt.
Bear in mind that this is a variant cover (ie. not the offical cover), so the cover doesn't necessarily have any bearing on the comic's contents. But still, I expect appropriate squeeing to commence.
