Luke and Jessica Sittin’ In A Tree.

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.

The New Avengers: Soon Featuring Squirrel Girl.

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.

Breaking Squirrel Girl News!

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.

Party on!

Preparing for the Cosmic Crunchies.

Since She-Hulk is getting Chibi and the Squaddies need to know what to expect, fill your eyes with some Galactus and Thanos sketchcards.

Yum.

Axebone Above All.

For the past few weeks we have been showcasing some of the outrageous Marvel Comics art from the sketch card community chest. Today we are getting alphabetical.

Axebone. That is all.

To think that these orignal art masterpieces are one-of-a-kind prizes that have been inserted in a single set? Wow.

It is true. This entire catalog of visual bliss is contained within the Rittenhouse Archives Marvel 70th Anniversary collection. Happy hunting!

Three Shades of Extreme.

You know the Neopolitan ice cream with three common flavors in one package? This is a lot more intense. Coming in December, Marvel Comics is bringing Shuma-Gorath back. Alex Ross himself painted the tentacles on the cover. Word.

Not your taste? Okay, let’s shift gears extremely. Dig in to Ivan Brunetti’s masterpiece on Strange Tales. I love this.

If those were chocolate and vanilla, we need some serious strawberry to finish the mix. Lotsa red here. Rob Liefeld, returning to splatter his creation properly. I hope you brought your spoon!

Marvel Adventures of Spider-Man Featuring Chat: Is She Squirrel Girl’s Sister?

Marvel Adventures of Spider-Man is widely recognized as the best Spidey title in the world at this moment in time. For one thing, it allowed the madness of Skottie Young to whip out that wicked cool cover for #59. Here is the original drawing.

Aside from the intensity of the art and the quality of the storytelling, this book has introduced a sweet new character into the mythology of the Marvel Universe. Her name is Sophia Sanduval, and she is better known as Chat.

As you can see, Chat talks to animals. She is constantly surrounded by a flock of feathers and fur. This delicious dolittle also dropped an intriguing hint recently that may open the zoological possiblity of a Squirrel Girl appearance in Marvel Adventures of Spider-Man.

Chat’s sister is three issues away. Will she be revealed as Doreen Green? Will Squirrel Girl finally have a featured role in a major ongoing series? A little bird told me maybe, but only time will tell.
