THEN And NOW – Thunderbolts And Nova Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes (UPDATE)

tbTHEN

I do want to stress that the books are firmly in the hands of one writer, whose long-term vision for the title — and whose involvement in the art assignments — anchors the series. We’re not playing musical chairs. We have faith in our writers.

[Writer] Daniel [Way] is building some fascinating subplots, and the budding romance — if that’s the right word — between the Punisher and Elektra is just one aspect of that.

When that arc comes to a close with July’s issue #11, Charles Soule (“27,” “Swamp Thing”) will take over the book’s writing duties for two issues designed to spotlight the team’s members. We spoke with Way, Soule, and “Thunderbolts” editor Jordan D. White about their plans for the series.

Daniel Way: Issue #11 will be — for the foreseeable future, at least — my final issue of the series. As often happens in this business, another project that I’d been shepherding along for several years finally lined up and, knowing that a second opportunity may never come along, I made the tough decision to step away from “Thunderbolts” in order to pursue it. It wasn’t easy, but it had to be done.

Marvel Comics teenage hero Nova has already rocketed from one end of the galaxy to the other in his brief time in the Marvel U, but starting with July’s “Nova” #6 he’ll be heading into a new world: a brand new creative team.

As part of their most recent “Next Big Thing” call, the publisher revealed that Zeb Wells and Paco Medina will be taking over the book from its second arc on, taking over for the departing Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness. Both writers and Editor Steve Wacker joined the press to discuss the move.

UPDATE: One Little Bleeder writes from a show last month;

This “new assignment” for Daniel Way must be very new as just 4 weeks ago Cullen Bunn and Daniel Way were discussing very heavily the use of Venom and how he and symbiote interact and how that might play in upcoming Thunderbolts issues.  The main talk centered around Venom’s recent arc and issues with Hellstorm and how his trip to hell back during Rick Remender’s arc influenced the power the alien has and what abilities it can manifest.
