AGE OF ULT RON
Ron Perazza has returned to Marvel, after spearheading DC’s digital line (and then leaving rather than move to the West Coast) and working as VP and General Manager of ComiXology for, it seems, a rather brief period.
Will Marvel join DC in making their comics available digitally before the print books now?
(thanks to Andy Diggle for the visual idea above…)
Brian Bendis talks Guardians Of The Galaxy
The things that have happened on Earth in the past few events have had a butterfly effect through the galaxy. The abuse of time travel, the use of the Infinity Gems…these things have costs. The Guardians are the first line of defense for Earth. If you’re looking at Earth in the Marvel Universe from a distant, it looks like an insane asylum! It’s a place where the Phoenix Force doesn’t destroy the world, where Galactus doesn’t feed. It’s the scariest place anywhere to the rest of the galaxy! Wait until Earth joins the cosmic community… A lot of big time cosmic players are on stage right from the beginning.

Do we have a secondary mutation here?
