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 Ultimate Alliance 2: New Screenshots from Comic-Con.

Wow. On the day that Activision announced the inclusion of Jean Grey and Gambit in the upcoming Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 video game, they also released screenshots of the most amazing looking Iron Fist and Deadpool that a joystick has ever controlled.

Simply gorgeous.

X-Babies Go Zombie, Wolverine Appreciates Art, and Maybe More Squirrel Girl.

X-babies

That little bag of treats will be available from Marvel Comics in October. X-Babies in the flesh. And, in case that is not sweet enough for you, there will also be a Zombie Babies variant cover. Image not available, artist to be announced, thrill already engaged.

Remember the Wolverine fine artist riffs? October sees them all in one place. Break out the wine and cheese. It’s a beautiful thing.

Deadpool #900 is a Giant-Sized tribute to the coolest walking hamburger patty of all time. As if he could try to hide it, some of the solicitation seems to say Squirrel Girl:

Wade bares his soul (and a lot more) to a shrink who’s got major squirrels in his own attic.

Could that mean more Doreen Green? Remains to be seen.

More Squirrel Girl Please.

IloveMarvel

CableDeadpool

It has been way too long since we have seen Doreen Green on the cover of a Marvel comic book. More Squirrel Girl, please?

To kick off this campaign, I leave you with a quote to define our champion. This is why we are crusading for her return.

Squirrel Girl is a definitive hero, she is the essence of all we should hope for in our heroes. She is loyal, courageous, unafraid to take on seemingly-unassailable odds, always with a smile on her face, and not without the witty one-liner. If we can’t love and admire everything she stands for, then what have we all come to as a society?

Oh. My. Pi had always been one of the coolest cats in the community, now he has attained Godhood. He posted his Deadpool Cubecraft, and life will never be the same. Please, somebody, anybody, make me a Squirrel Girl. Thank you.

Pocket Fighter vs. Marvel Super Heroes?

Pocket Fighter was always one of my all-time favorite video games. Ten years later, we see what would happen if they cut loose the Chibi on the Marvel Superheroes. Can you imagine the special moves?

Thursday Thirteen: Wicked Visual Bliss.

marvel_sketch_cards_70to78_by_anjinanhut

Wow.  It has been six entire months since I did a Thursday Thirteen. We are back in the saddle again.  With a vengeance!

One of my favorite things to do on the interwebs is a secret I will share with you today. Go to www.deviantart.com and search for “marvel masterpieces sketch”. You will find hours of wicked visual bliss, I promise. Today my TT gives a little taste.

That first set of hand-drawn cards that were inserted randomly into the packs is from anjinanhut. Let’s count down the characters starting with that first set of nine and showcase their myths with a corresponding Vs. System card, shall we?

1. Shuma-Gorath. Everyone’s favorite pink tentacled Chaos Dimension special move busting giant alien from Marvel vs. Capcom!

2. Doop. My students said they heard him called The Big Green Potato on television. For shame. All the X-Statix DEMAND RESPECT. Especially when they are morphing into Wolverine. Thank you.

3. X-23. Sounds like a spray lubricant. Does she free up rusty bolts?

4. Doop again. No wonder I love this set of drawings so much. Who is he transforming into this time?

doop2

5. Whirlwind. Featured on the most beautiful Dave Devries painting in all of Vs. System. Sorry, Chaos Magic, but I love this one with all my heart.

6. Doop for a third time. Steve Rogers, eat your big green potatoed heart out.

7. Constrictor? Sorry, no Vs. System card for you.

8. Fourth Doop, this time Squinty.

9. Deadpool. The man (zombie) who wears Squirrel Girl underoos.  Really, he does.

That completes the first round, here goes the final four.

10. Sentinel Mark IV. You didn’t think I would get throught this list without at least one blast of shiny purple, did you? It is my blood type, after all. That one was painted by gravyboy.

And then there were three.

11. Mysterio. Fresh from the twisted sick inkwell of Narcomics. Gotta love a dude with a fishbowl on his head, even if he doesn’t have any real superpowers. This is all an illusion anyway.

12. Thanos. The glove, the purple face, the utter purity of devotion to death.

It doesn’t get any better than that. Unless I can find…

13. Squirrel Girl! You thought I would say Mulletman? Sorry, I am nuts for the bushy tailed tree rodents and Doreen Green is the most powerful superhero the world has ever seen.

First one from Celestial4Ever, second by LisaR. After I post this, I am scurrying straight up the nearest tree.

Thanks for visiting my return to the land of Thursday Thirteen, your eyes will recover from Wicked Visual Bliss Overload in a matter of minutes. Maybe.
