Your eyes do not deceive you! Secret Wars has made the impossible possible and the battle-weary hero returns to the fight once more in Old Man Logan #1! From Brian Michael Bendis and artist Andrea Sorrentino comes a brand-new series returning fans to the world of one of the most revered and iconic X-Men stories of all time!

Welcome back to the Wastelands, a land dominated by victorious super villains. The greatest heroes the world has ever known – butchered and murdered by their arch-enemies. Tyrants, terrors and madmen now rule over the dusty wastes with an iron fist. Hope left this land a long time ago. But there is one man who may yet make a difference. A man with nothing else to lose…

Now, amidst the fury and chaos of Battleworld, a reluctant warrior pops his claws again and returns to combat. And the war for Battleworld begins in his own backyard. As the events of Secret Wars unfold, will he find his life’s mission to rid the world of evil more attainable – or more impossible than ever before?

The drums of war beat in the Wasteland. And a hero is reforged in the fiery crucible of Battleworld. The journey begins with a resounding SNIKT this May as the X-Man formerly known as Wolverine crashes in to Secret Wars!

Brian Michael Bendis Stays Exclusive with Marvel

Marvel ComicsMarvel Entertainment has announced a renewed exclusive agreement with legendary comic writer Brian Michael Bendis!

The multiple Eisner award-winning writer has come to be one of the premier voices in the comic industry with iconic runs on many of Marvel’s most popular titles including Guardians of the Galaxy, Daredevil, Uncanny X-Men, All-New X-Men, and more. Bendis also boasts two of the longest comic runs in American comic book history with his eight year stretch as writer of Avengers and over 200 consecutive issues of Ultimate Spider-Man – which saw the introduction of hit character, Miles Morales, to Marvel’s Ultimate Universe.

Reflecting on his lengthy career at Marvel, Bendis said in a release:

There’s been some speculation that I will be leaving comics because of other cool things going on in my life but I wanted to let everyone know that isn’t the case. I get it, sometimes when people have something going on in other media they tend to drift away from comics. But that is the opposite of what my life’s goals are.

I want to bring people into comics so they can see the original wonderful magic we have to offer every single week,” Bendis continues. “My partnership with Marvel, since the first day they hired me, has been a continuous dream come true and I’m honored that I get to continue this partnership for many years to come.

The writer’s lengthy stint at the House of Ideas is set to continue with a new exclusive agreement and a wealth of new stories in 2015 including the cataclysmic closure of the Ultimate Universe with Secret Wars: Ultimate End and a soon-to-be announced Secret Wars series that will have all Marvel fans keeping their eyes on Battleworld!

In addition to Brian’s Marvel Universe work, he will continue with his critically-acclaimed creator-owned series under Marvel’s ICON imprint, POWERS. The first issue of POWERS, by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, returns to comic shops for a brand new jumping on point in POWERS #1 and, debuting March 10th, POWERS will now be a live-action drama available only on the Playstation Network.

Congrats to Marvel and Brian!

Brian Michael Bendis Talks Marvel’s Secret Wars

Brian Michael Bendis was on last night’s Late Night Seth Meyers. He was there to promote his new television series Powers, based on his comic, but he also got to talk Secret Wars.

What’s great is not just how smooth Bendis was talking about comics, but also his being able to explain comics, and what Marvel is doing for non-comic readers.

Now, can we get more comic creators to go on late night shows to promote what’s coming out? Can we at least get Bendis out in front of more people?

And here’s Bendis talking about Powers.


Powers Debuts March 10 on Playstation

Writer Brian Michael Bendis posted on the Playstation blog that Powers, the show based on the comic by him and Michael Avon Oeming will debut on the Playstation Network March 10. It’s the first original live-action series for it. The series will run initially for 10 episodes.

The first three episodes will debut on March 10, with new episodes debuting each Tuesday. That’s a bit different model than what Netflix does where they dump the entire run of a series online. The first episode will also be free, and the full season will be available free to Playstation Plus members.
