Post Apocalypse Now

Our favorite new series of 2013 is definitely the post-apocalyptic western EAST OF WEST and we couldn’t be more excited to get to celebrate the launch of the collection with the book’s amazing artist… Nick Dragotta!

Nick’s art has dazzled us for a few years now with mystic arts and high mutant weirdness on X-STATIX PRESENTS: DEAD GIRL (with Isotope favorite Peter Milligan), explored the uncomfortable underbelly of the Marvel Universe on VENGEANCE (with another IsoFave Joe Casey), dazzled our poor little minds on FF (with yet another favorite ’round these parts Jonathan Hickman), transported us back to yesteryear on CAPTAIN AMERICA: FOREVER ALLIES (with comics legend Roger Stern), and always always brings a smile to our faces with his awesome site HOWTOONS.

Come celebrate with us! Our beloved Kirsten Baldock is crafting up a palette-stunning cocktail list based on Nick’s work in honor of the evening. Mister Dragotta promises a sketchbook-filling Four Horsemen styled evening… and we’re hoping he’ll bring in some original art for us to buy as well!

Are you ready for the Post-Apocalypse Now? We are!

Just What The Doctor Ordered

While the planets take their time to align and the stars configure at what surely must be the slowest speed possible, the good Doctor Strange has always weathered the most turbulent storms of the Marvel universe, battling the unseen forces of chaos with a grace and dignity that few others have. 

Even with the most rudimentary knowledge of astrology I know it’s pretty clear that, given all that has been written about the character over the years, the man is a Scorpio. And that means that sometime between October 23rd and November 22nd must be the good doctor’s birthday. What better time for Marvel to announce the next stage in Doctor Strange’s life/death/rebirth cycle than now… with a return to the golden area of the legendary Roger Stern at the helm?

Since Marvel announced this on the 3rd, the day after creator Steve Ditko‘s day of birth, I’m going to be counting that as the good doctor’s birthday from here on out. Feel free to join me. 

Doctor Strange: From The Marvel Vault hits this February and with this news I can feel the stars aligning just a little bit faster. Thank the Hoary Hoasts for that! Read more about it here:
