When, back in 2003, the Mythology: The DC Comics Art of Alex Ross artbook was published, fans rejoiced with the compilation of comics most famous realist artist.
Pantheon Books, by hiring the celebrated designer Chip Kidd to architect the anthology, showed that it was aware of how the future readership would want something special for such a peculiar author.

Right after, however, arose a sense of insufficiency for the tremendous lack of an equivalent volume on Ross’s work for Marvel Comics.

Fifteen years later, Marvelocity is everything the fans lingered for and more. Even though in a nonofficial way, the new anthology reveals itself as the perfect complement for Mythology. Essencial to that very effect is the return of Kidd, lauded in the comics world for his seminal work on Batman Animated, a lush yet elegant trip through the creative worlds behind the homonym animated series.

Marvelocity includes more than 50 unpublished sketches as well as an original Spider-Man short.
The foreword is by director J. J. Abrams and it comes out October the 2nd.

The afro-latin super-hero, created in 2011 by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli for the Ultimate Marvel universe, joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
The project will be the first MCU animated production being distributed in movie theatres and the production is by Sony Pictures Animation.
The Californian studio, famous for gathering some of the top talent in the industry, like the director Genndy Tartakovsky, has been, nonetheless, broadly criticised for its irregular results and lacking a proper voice.
The new trailer of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse can shake that fame with its bold aesthetics and a clear emphasis in action and not comedy, an atypical formula in the US’s big animation productions panorama.
This option brands the new production as a belonging part, not a sidelines spin-off, of the MCU spirit. Animation fans that may feel tired of aesthetics currently ruling over the American animation mainstream (even more realistic hair?) will find in the new trailer reasons to check out this adventure, with its graphic approach having strong 2D elements.
The executive production is by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, with Lord as the screenwriter. The duo, acclaimed for its work in The Lego Movie was associated to Solo: a Star Wars Story until last Summer.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was announced last January by Sony and its release date is December, the 14th, 2018

Yesterday, the internet bit its nails as it awaited news about what would be the time it would be published today.
It’s here, the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, the nineteenth movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and its third dedicated to the team of superheroes created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
Directed by the Brothers Russo, the duo previously responsible for Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War, the movie will gather Captain America’s team to the Guardians of the Galaxy in an epic battle against Thanos, created by Mike Friedrich and Jim Starlin in 1973.
The release is set for May, the 4th, 2018.

Dan Buckley, President of Marvel Entertainment has announced that C.B. Cebulski will replace Axel Alonso as Editor-in-Chief of Marvel Comics.
Alonso, who had worked previously for Vertigo, an imprint of the rival company DC Comics, had been working for Marvel since 2000, having become EIC in 2011.
The unexpected news places that very role in the hands of Cebulski, who had diverse functions in the so-called House of Ideas, from scriptwriter to editor and talent hunter.
For the past year and a half, Cebulski has been directing Asian projects for parent company Disney from Shanghai.
Famous for his knowledge of foreign markets, the new EIC has strong connections to the Far East and Europe.
C.B. Cebulski said it is an honour to be invited for the role and that Marvel’s mission is, and always has been, to create a compromise between a reflexion of current events and an escapist vehicle.
Joe Quesada, Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer, will be present along the transition process.
The news has come out through an official communiqué, having been first revealed by G. G. Gustines of The New York Times.
