HAWKEYE VS. DEADPOOL MINISERIES COMING
Hawkeye is my single favorite Marvel book being put out at the moment. Deadpool is my least favorite Marvel character of all time in the history of ever. Marvel has decided to torture me with contradicting emotions by putting the two in a six-issue miniseries later this year. The promo pic up top actually looks pretty badass and as a Clint Barton fan, I can’t resist adding this to my pull list.
For more on why Deadpool is doodie, check out Albotas contributor Kevin Cortez’s nail-on-the-head rant about it here.

The X-Men Turn 50 in 2013

The golden anniversary of Marvel’s band of mutants takes place next year. To commemorate the occassion, the various X-titles will have variant covers that will take you back to a time when the franchise wasn’t yet a mainstream Hollywood property. Case in point are the covers to All-New X-Men #6 with the cast of Generation X by Chris Bachalo and X-Factor #250 with every person that’s been on the roster (wearing their late 80s/early 90s uniforms) by Clay Mann.

For The Ladies: Here’s A Naked Picture Of Stan Lee. You’re Quite Welcome.
This picture of a suave-looking Stan Lee circa 1983 is from Sean Howe's upcoming book Marvel Comics: The Untold Story and it’s glorious.
Here’s an excerpt from the book:

STAN LEE, CENTERFOLD (photograph by Eliot R. Brown)When Stan Lee visited New York in January 1983, the editorial staff was at the peak of its yuk-yuk, hand-buzzer giddiness. They’d been shooting photos of each other in superhero costumes for some of the covers—several staff members appeared on the cover of the last issue of SPIDER-WOMAN—and now they were putting together a comic that consisted wholly of photos of intra-office hijinks. They wanted to include Stan the Man. Lee, the original ringmaster, jumped at the chance to pose for a nude centerfold. Marvel staffers photographed Lee with an oversize comic book covering his private parts; soon after, they received a call from his assistant in L.A. “Stan is wild,” said the assistant. “He should not have been naked for your centerfold. Please. Don’t.” (A Hulk costume was later superimposed over Lee’s body in postproduction.)

Notice how the comic had to be oversize. Get it, Stan!
