I have always loved Batroc (zee Leaper!) and I finally have my chance to write him in the upcoming Captain America and Iron Man arc. I think the story will be wild and crazy and a lot of fun. It also features the “new and improved” Batroc’s Brigade, and they’re all jumping around on the cover to issue 634! Here’s a look at that issue (and some of the other Marvel books I’ve got coming out in July!

I have a few new books coming out from Marvel in June. Here’s a quick look at them. Make sure to tell your comic book retailer of choice that you must have these books!
Captain America and Hawkeye #632

And whose side is the mysterious Kashmir Vennema on? (Hint: It’s not Cap and Hawkeye’s!)
Hybrid Queen? What the Hell? I thought this thing was about dinosaurs! That is one big snake! (more…)
Anyone who knows me knows that I am a HUGE fan of Art Adams’ work. I can clearly remember sitting on the floor reading an issue of Longshot for the first time on a rainy day in North Carolina. So, it is an incredible thrill and honor that he is doing the covers for Fear Itself: The Fearless! Marvel has released a couple of sneak peeks at the covers to issues 4 and 5.
For those of you who thought this book might be boring, suck on this!
