Marvel releases Civil War II teasers

Coming this June, the new Civil War begins in the Marvel Universe. Once I found out it was a Brian Bendis/David Marquez book I was ready to spend all the money on it (check out the first few issues of Invincible Iron Man if you want to see what I mean.)

Now Marvel’s released two new teaser images from Jim Cheung, letting us know a little more about who’s on whose side. Click the jump for the teaser images and a few words from Marvel about Civil War II.

Top 15 Comic Book Artists of 2015

Top 15 Comic Book Artists of 2015

Just to add one more “Best Of 2015” tally to the interwebs, I’m throwing in my “Top Comic Book Artists of 2015” vote.

Let’s face it, Marvel walked away with this one. Battleworld blew the doors off the place, but pre-Secret Wars and All-New All-Different Marvel continue to make things difficult for any other publisher trying to get a foothold. (Het-hem, DC. Pay attention.)

But IDW was well-represented by Alex Milne and Livio Ramondelli. (No surprise if you know my undying Transformers love, despite Michael Bay’s atrocities.) And Stjepan Sejic’s Twitch and Adam Warren’s Empowered snuck in there too, but Adam’s art has had my love for the past (censored) years since I was in college, so that’s hardly fair.

Bearing that in mind, in no particular order, here’s my highly biased, totally subjective, “ooo look the numbers match,” Top 15 of 2015 Comic Book Artists of the Year.

Comic Issues #247 – The Return of the Quarantine!

Anthony got rid of the plague! And promptly gave it to Ashley. (So generous of him, right?) The quarantine is still up at the House of Two Geeks, so Elizabeth skypes in from Starbase Wallace and we’ll hope the bug dies before it can ruin anyone else’s weekend.

To pass they time, they recap New Avengers #2, Angela: Queen of Hel #1, Chewbacca #2 and House of M #4, with the amazing art of Ario Anindito.
