SDCC 2022: Cherish Debuts! Written by Katana Collins & Designed by Marc Silvestri

Dynamite invites fans to meet Cherish, an exciting brand new vigilante character debuting in her own title which is being written by Katana Collins, with some of the original concepts and designs by Marc Silvestri!

When the blood on the boardroom floor moves from metaphorical to literal, Cherish comes to play. Amelia Fellows was once like any other young woman. That is, until she witnessed firsthand the betrayal and murder of her father by those he trusted. To get her revenge against some of the richest, most powerful people in the world, she’ll become the well-armed, high-tech vigilante Cherish.

Katana Collins and rising artist Gabriel Caitano depict Cherish’s infiltration and siege on the corrupt corporate world. The first target up in issue one is Unicon and its chairwoman Valerie Nolan. A more subtle approach is required, with Cherish needing to hide in plain sight as a staff member – and even seducing Valerie’s own son Conrad. When suspicious eyes turn to her, will she be able to keep up the ruse and survive long enough to get the evidence and justice she seeks?

The Cherish character and her overall story were created by the legendary artist Marc Silvestri, known for his contributions to Uncanny X-Men, Wolverine, creations of Witchblade, The Darkness, and much more.

To celebrate the reveal of this exciting new character, Dynamite has called in a team of highly skilled agents to contribute variant covers. Marc Silvestri’s artwork that helped in designing the character is featured. He’s joined with a finely detailed piece by Brett Booth. Eric Canete‘s cover oozes with energy. Last but certainly not least, Soo Lee brings in some cyberpunk vibes.

Cherish #1 is slated for release in November 2022.

SDCC 2022: Marvel Studios lays out Phase 5 with some surprises with Phase 6 news!

Marvel Studios took to Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con to show off what we can expect for Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that kicks off in 2023 and goes through summer 2024. Some new rumored new projects were announced with dates as to when we can currently expect the releases:

  • Ant-Man/Wasp: Quantumania – February 17, 2023
  • Secret Invasion – Spring 2023 on Disney+
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Phase 3 – May 5, 2023
  • Echo – Summer 2023 on Disney+

  • Thunderbolts – July 26, 2024

Thunderbolts finishes off the phase and in the comics was originally a story about villains who acted as heroes while the major heroes of the Marvel comic universe were missing. The reveal of the villains is considered one of the best reveals in comics. Since then, the concept has been reworked as a kind of Suicide Squad for Marvel villains as well as a police force. It’s unknown what direction the film will take the team but the concept has been teased in recent films and shows.

Interestingly, Armor Wars was absent from the phase though Don Cheadle returns as War Machine in Secret Invasion. Also of note:

  • MODOK will be in Ant-Man/Wasp Quantumania
  • Ant-Man/Wasp Quantumania was shown with Kang at the end
  • Cosmo voiced by Maria Bakalova will be in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
  • Gamora will be leading the Ravagers in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is the end of the series and of note Rocket was not in a team shot at the end. The High Evolutionary will be the villain and Adam Warlock was shown
  • Daredevil: Born Again will be 18 episodes
  • Secret Invasion trailer shown
  • Wong and Daredevil will be in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law
  • Black Panther: Wakanda Forever showed off Attuma and Namor
  • Chukwudi Iwuji as the High Evolutionary!

Here’s the map of Phase 5 courtesy of here and here.

Beyond Phase 5 comes Phase 6 with… Fantastic Four! Avengers: The Kang Dynasty! Secret Wars!!!

  • Fantastic Four – November 8, 2024
  • Avengers: The Kang Dynasty – May 2, 2025
  • Avengers: Secret Wars – November 7, 2025

Phase 6 is dubbed “The Multiverse Saga“!

Phase 6 looks like it has 8 more projects that are unnanounced.

Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 6

And, once again, the rumors for Hall H have been proven wrong with no announcement of “The Mutants” the “leaked” title of the X-Men Marvel Cinematic Universe reboot. Expect whatever is to come for that to fill on some of those blank spaces for Phase 6.

SDCC 2022: Jennifer Blood Meets William Shakespeare?!

Jennifer Blood

After his recent run on the exciting new Jennifer Blood series and the anticipated upcoming Ninjettes, writer Fred Van Lente is taking the bombshell hitwoman antagonist out on her own with the help of the Bard. Jennifer Blood Presents: Giulietta Romeo: Hitwoman is a pulse-pounding one-shot starring the breakout character that fans have been clamoring to see more of.

Slamming her way out of the pages of the recent Jennifer Blood: Bloodlines series, Italian assassin Giulietta Romeo stars in “La Tempesta,” a noirish reimagining of the William Shakespeare play The Tempest. Giulietta is being extradited to Italy after the events of the “Bountiful” storyline when her plane is shot down over a remote island in the Atlantic, a former Nazi stronghold that is now the tiny kingdom of a man named Prospero, a former duke of the Naples mobs. His brother, the man who usurped his position, was being extradited on that same plane, and Giulietta finds herself in the middle of a gory blood feud and fighting for her life against Prospero’s monstrous servants, Caliban and Ariel.

Jennifer Blood was originally the creation of Garth Ennis and Andriano Batista and told the story of Jessica Blute, who was born into a brutal crime family and tried to escape it by faking her own death. But when her new life was destroyed by the mob, she took on the guise of Jennifer Blood to get revenge. In the recent relaunch of the series by Van Lente and Vincenzo Federici, the title and carnage passed down to a new generation as a new Jennifer Blood took on the city of Bountiful where the worst of the mob were being protected after joining witness protection. Giulietta Romeo was the main antagonist of the new Jennifer Blood and now gets her own one-shot.

Jennifer Blood Presents: Giulietta Romeo: Hitwoman will comes to shelves in December 2022.
