The announcement went out Friday so it's official: I'm writing a new THUNDERBOLTS monthly series for Marvel Comics! Working with the Avengers editorial team and artist Jon Mailin to bring this team back into the spotlight is going to be a blast.

Check out Jon's work here on DA: :iconjonmalin:

The Thunderbolts have been around in a few different configurations since 1997, but if you've never read their adventures I'll give you a quick overview: They're a team of heroes who haven't always been heroic. Many of them are actually villains in search of redemption and the tough choices they make will define their heroic or villainous legacy.

The new team, lead by the Winter Soldier, will be emerging out of an Avengers-centric event starting in April called Standoff. Reading Standoff will be a sweet introduction to the new Thunderbolts, but I'm also aiming to make the first issue of Thunderbolts very new reader friendly so you can get on board without needing an encyclopedic knowledge of the Marvel Universe. If you've been a longtime Marvel reader, you'll find lots to enjoy here. If you only know the Winter Soldier from the Captain America movie, this will still be easy to dig into.

I can't go into any more detail beyond the above right now, but expect more details soon.

As always, thanks for the enthusiasm and support!

A year ago WAYWARD #1 arrived in comic shops nationwide so, as a special thank you to all of you, I'm posting up the full script for the issue. If you own the issue or our first trade paperback you can compare the script to the final printed version page by page and see how the collaborative process of making comics works.

Please feel free to share this post and link far and wide.

All of us on the Wayward team deeply appreciate your support. Keep telling people about the series.

(PS: I have a bunch of other tutorials about how I write comics, pitch my stories to publishers, and the economics of the comic business you can check out HERE.)

Jim Zub's Capcom Fighting Tribute Pin-Up by Zubby
Jim Zub's Capcom Fighting Tribute Pin-Up
I'm thrilled to have a new pin-up piece included in UDON's upcoming Capcom Fighting Tribute book. Going off the beaten path a bit, I did three characters from Warzard (called 'Red Earth' here in North America) and went for a more cartoony approach. It was tons of fun putting this together.

- Capcom Fighting Tribute will premiere with a limited-run convention edition hardcover at San Diego Comic-Con, July 9-12! www.udonentertainment.com/blog…
- The standard edition of Capcom Fighting Tribute will be released September 2015. Links to pre-order the book at a variety of online retailers can be found here: www.udonentertainment.com/blog…

Atomic Robo Postcard by Zubby
Atomic Robo Postcard
Atomic Robo is in the midst of an incredible Kickstarter to fund reprinting their comic collections in new spiffy hardcovers. As a huge Robo fan (if you haven't read the series you really should, especially now that it's FREE online) I was already on board with supporting Brian and Scott, but after they asked me if I'd like to contribute a piece of postcard art to go with the fundraiser, I was even more ecstatic.

They asked me to do up a piece based on Atomic Robo Vol. 2: The Dogs of War. You can check out a step-by-step walkthrough of my process on this HERE.

Hello! May be a little tardy to the party, but I just finished your Samurai Jack series. It was incredible. You sir did the series more than justice. You gave it a proper send off and for that I am grateful. I had a chance to meet Andy Suriano at Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC. Hey maybe next year you'll come to Heroes con, (wink, wink, nudge, nudge). I kid, I kid. Any way I love your work and keep it up buddy. Clap
