Oh and A Babies Vs X-Babies.


Marvel are launching Infinite Comics, starting on July the 9th, with a new digital comic book every week (hence the 52 slashes). The first story for thirteen parts will be Wolverine: Japan’s Most Wanted, to tie in with the new The Wolverine movie, by Jason Latour, Jason Aaron and Paco Diaz. There will be three other stories to follow.

Project Gamma is a new audio adaptive project for Marvel’s comic books, including musical scores for different scenes, and will change as you move from panel to panel. “Adaptive, non-repetitive scores…”

Oh dear… ComiXology appears to be crashing as a hundred thousand readers try to download seven hundred free comics simultaneously.

Marvel are launching a new web show hosted by Blair Butler, Earth’s Mightiest Show, including reality TV footage. Hey, you know Grace Randolph is still right here? Scab, scab, scab…
