Check the newsstand this week. Two great tastes that taste like a championship.
The identity of that magical miniature masterpiece can now be revealed. It is an original art sketch card included in the Marvel Heroes and Villains set from Rittenhouse Archives. It was painted by Gooney Toons and it features me as Doctor Strange!
In honor of its creation, we have started a whole new world. Please join us here:
There is a wild party going on, and we would love to have you along for the ride.
Yes my furry little fanatics, our wait is over. Just in time for the holidays, Mighty Fine Tees is slapping ink on fabric in the configuration that we have been dying to see for years.
Official Squirrel Girl shirts!
Those are just a taste. See the whole collection and get yours here:
And, obviously, don’t forget to collect your back-up nuts!
Ahhh. Comic book love. That is the wedding of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. She is also known as Jewel, and they are both members of the New Avengers.
Obviously the love between Luke and Jessica has borne fruit. Their baby is Danielle, and she has often been the focal point for some serious drama in the Marvel Universe. This weekend at the New York Comic Con, Brian Michael Bendis made a major announcement that will alter comic book mythology forever. Danielle’s new nanny will be Squirrel Girl.
As you can see, this beautiful baby is in constant danger of being snatched by supervillains. Since Squirrel Girl has never been beaten, she makes the perfect sitter. The offspring of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage could not be in better hands.
Brian Michael Bendis admitted this weekend that he has “written his Squirrel Girl issue”. What does that mean for Doreen Green? That remains to be seen. Bendis is a serious writer who delves deeply into the dark side of superheroes, and Squirrel Girl thrives in the light. She has never been featured in a mainstream Marvel title, and she has never been anything short of whimsical. The future of Squirrel Girl is about to change drastically, thanks to the cute little spawn of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones.
Very exciting times.
Those are the New Avengers, and you can probably recognize most of them. Marvel Comics busted their myth wide open this weekend at the New York Comic Con by announcing the addition of Squirrel Girl to the title. Yes, Doreen Green has been selected as the nanny for Danielle, the daughter of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. We can hardly believe it, but it is true.
Soon Squirrel Girl will be found in a mainstream Marvel title.
Aside from the fact that our bushy-tailed fave will now be rubbing magicks with Doctor Strange, perhaps the most thrilling aspect of this is simple.
Stuart Immonen will be drawing Squirrel Girl. ‘Nuff said.
The Squirrel Girl wave is about to crash into the mainstream of Marvel mythology. Yesterday at the New York Comic Con Brian Michael Bendis dropped a big bombshell for bushy-tailed freaks everywhere: Doreen Green is appearing in the New Avengers.
No, Harley Quinn is not crossing over. That little ditty is just a raucous romp by pennycandies on deviantart.com. The truth about Squirrel Girl’s new gig goes like this, straight from the Bendis’s mouth:
She will be chosen as the nanny for Luke Cage and Jessica Jones’ baby, and she will be found to have “a hidden past with some of the members.”
It’s true, and Bendis confirmed it yesterday. He has “written his Squirrel Girl issue”, and she will soon be part of the New Avengers. I can’t think of a better piece of news for 10/10/10.

As we twiddle our thumbs in anticipation of the new Super Hero Squad season and its foray into the Marvel Comics’ cosmos, we would like to have a hot little party with two very big villains. Since She-Hulk is getting Chibi and the Squaddies need to know what to expect, fill your eyes with some Galactus and Thanos sketchcards.
Sketchcard artists, in order: Andy Price, Brandon Kenney, Katie Cook, Chad Hardin, Warren Martineck, and Megan Hetrick.
That is an actual screenshot from the upcoming NBA Jam video game. After watching Chris Bosh in person for the first game of the best team in basketball history last night in downtown Miami, I didn’t think hoops could get any sweeter.
I was wrong.
Soon President Obama will be dunking nasty in Sarah Palin’s face!
Oh man, and I thought Marvel vs. Capcom 3 had my juices flowing. Now this? Yikes. I will leave you with a quote from Trey Smith of EA Sports. Very exciting times.
Sarah Palin is hilarious in the game. She has a beehive haircut and a helicopter dunk that is just awesome. She also makes some pretty funny faces in the photos. It’s just good, clean fun. We even made logos for the Republicans and Democrats, where the donkey is this bad-ass donkey with a Mohawk, and the Republicans have this cool elephant. In the beginning, we were just trying to be true to “Jam,” but on the flip side, it’s really cool to put this in there. Ever since we announced this game, people wanted Bill Clinton to be back. They knew that Obama was a baller, so they wanted him in the game. It’s just this perfect storm for us and we couldn’t be happier to include all of these characters in the game.
Once upon a time, I won a card tournament with Chthon. He is one of the Elder Gods in the Marvel Universe, and he recently got a gig on the Super Hero Squad TV Show.
Chthon also holds a special place in our hearts here at Full Body Transplant since he took possession of Scarlet Witch during the Avengers Assemble storyline.
The climax of that particular myth is spectacular. It involves a voodoo doll that captures Chthon’s soul and forces him to switch back out of Wanda’s body and into his own. An action figure actually defeated an Elder God! No wonder he looks so melancholy on his throne of bone.
During our recent reverie for this comic book character and his corresponding Vs. System trading card incarnation, we suddenly realized that this is one myth that has a rather intense real-life connection. Sedlec Ossuary in Prague, Czech Republic is a cathedral made of human bones.
Chthon would feel right at home.
Last week we shared some Nar sketch cards in both the ink and color phases. Today we got the pencil sketches just in time for the weekend!
As exquisite as Nar’s pencils are, they may not hold you for the whole three days. Seeking to satisfy, we will serve a full plate of Anjin Anhut, starting with gnarly magick ink sketches and working our way to a fully rendered flourish. Dig in!
