Marvel’s Land Grab On DC In March

DC may have got Alex Maleev to do a few Batman pages. But in March, Marvel have new books from Mahmud Asrar, Pete Woods and Paul Cornell who have, of late, been only seen working for DC Comics on books such as Supergirl, Legion Lost, Demon Knights and Stormwatch.

But in March, they’re on Ultimate Comics: X-Men, Avengers Assemble and Wolverine.

No big showboating, no exclusive agreements, just quietly taking names associated with DC Comics. I expect more people to notice if Gail arrives, of course…

But there is some irony that Brian Wood was told he was writing the Supergirl comic that Mahmud was drawing, until at the last minute he found out it was a pitch process and he was unceremoniously dropped. And now they are reunited on the same Marvel comic. Someone somewhere has a keen sense of humour.
