Image All-Stars Talk Creative Advice, Avoiding Clichés and Fan Fic Advertisements
Over at Bleedingcool.com is an article I wrote speculating on Star Wars comics life after Dark Horse, wondering Marvel which writers could be a good fit to try their hand at penning the further adventures of Luke Skywalker and company. At the end of the article, I ask: Who do you want to see writing Star Wars comics for Marvel? Check out the article via this linkage.

I wasn’t kidding when I said in my earlier post that ya better make sure you have your local retailer preorder/hold you a copy of Rick Remender’s DEADLY CLASS #1. Although it will be a fast seller, it looks like retailers are on the ball with advance reorders. LINKAGE: Rich Johnston of Bleeding Cool reports (with chart evidence)
Artwork by Wesley Craig Deadly Class #1 arrives at brick n’ mortar and digital retailers on January 22, 2014 from Image Comics.
Announced at last year’s Image Expo in July, this one has been a long time coming. But this new creator-owned project from the iron-hot writer Rick Remender, with artist Wesley Craig and colorist Lee Loughridge, will finally hit comic shops and digital outlets on January 22, 2014 from Image Comics. Deadly Class follows in the wake of the quick sell-out of Black Science #1, Remender’s other new series at Image that debuted in November, which prompted additional printings of that much coveted first printing of issue one (which I’ve personally seen in a comic shop $6 sticker on the polybag). From the buzz of that and its own buzz-worthiness, I expect Deadly Class #1 to perform in similar fashion. Hopefully you got your pre-order in with your LCS.
