Swipe File: Mike Deodato And Alan Davis

Mike Deodato writes to Bleeding Cool, I was googling myself when I found this Aquaman image. My first thought was "hey, somebody swiped my cover!" but then I noticed that is was done ten years before mine! OOPS! See what you think… Davis and Farmer above, Deodato below.

The Print Version Of Miracleman Is Censored Over The N-Word

What's a publisher to do? Marvel is reprinting Marvelman/Miracleman but some readers are familiar with different prints. Take this scene from Miracleman #4, out this week. A few folk shouted foul: why had Big Ben replaced Garguanza? Was it down to the Fu Manchu reference? From the Miracleman 3D Special… But no, when Eclipse published […]

The Uncanny X-Men #100 Project Launches From The Hero Initiative

The Hero Initiative is launching their Uncanny X-Men 100 project.

In this case its Uncanny X-Men #12 […]

The Marvelman Story Never Reprinted Until Today

In 1984, Marvelman was behind on its schedule for Warrior magazines. Fearing newstand distributor disatisfaction, Dez Skinn got writer Alan Moore to write a new fill-in story to go between chapters. Possibly in the spirit of Days Of Future Past, possibly of Terminator, it meant that after only three short chapters of the comic, we […]

Alan Davis' Cover To First Miracleman Collection From Marvel Goes Live

Alan Davis' art there, just uploaded to Amazon for the collection of Miracleman Book 1: A Dream of Flying, out later in 2014. I do like that Amazon listing. How it states the comic is written by The Original Writer. But at the bottom, for About The Author, it forgets and names him…

BC Mag #2: Comic Book Feuds

Bleeding Cool Magazine article by Rich Johnston People understand Hollywood feuds exist, but find it strange similar behaviour might be exhibited in a field as lowly as that of, say, the comic book industry. But people are people, human nature remains, it's just there's less money in comics. Which often makes the behaviour worse, not […]

Paul Cornell And Alan Davis Bring Us Something Potentially Wolverine Related

We told you a while ago that Paul Cornell was wrapping up his DC Universe titles to work for Marvel. And now iFanboy seem to have made it official, teamed up with Alan Davis. Interestingly, both are British, both have Captain Britain and Excalibur credentials… could this be a bit of a swerve? Also, we […]

A Very N.I.C.E. Convention

Tom Huxley attended N.I.C.E. for Bleeding Cool this weekend; The inaugural Northants International Comic Expo began yesterday (and ends at 5pm today). Though its special guest Alan Moore was undoubtedly the main draw for most of those attending, there's plenty else besides – just like any con really – perhaps a bit small in scale […]

Bleeding Cool's Tom Huxley has been on the scene at the N.I.C.E.  comic book convention in Kettering and send in a batch of photos from Alan Davis to Alan Moore, as well as cosplay Captain Britain and Psylocke. All in a big tent. It was that kind of comic convention… lots more to come. The […]

Is Marvelman Closer Than We Think?

Because Todd McFarlane had abandoned his claim on Miracleman. Word Mark MIRACLEMAN Goods and Services (ABANDONED) IC 016. US 002 005 022 023 029 037 038 050. G & S: PRINTED MATTER, NAMELY, COMIC […]

Monday Runaround – A Cover By Glenn Fabry Will Always Do The Trick

AvengersStillWatch: Everyone loves the Avengers. Still. JolyWatch: Sam Humphries hits the Caribbean. He stressed that even if a writer felt like they were writing in the Caribbean for an obstinate audience or for a readership that may find their work irrelevant; the writer should not lose hope. Humphries was adamant that the Internet breaks down […]

Bleeding Cool has now learned that the third part will be in this year's Wolverine Annual in October. Davis has had […]

Alan Davis Brings Back ClanDestine In July

Alan Davis always seems to have the concept of family at the heart of the stories he writes. If a character hasn't got a family, he finds one for them. From JLA to Captain Britain to Excalibur to X-Men, it's been a common theme. But never more so than in ClanDestine, an actual family of […]


Alan Davis' AVX Cover For Secret Avengers #26 Is… Really Really Nice

What with Marvel announcing their Avengers Versus X-Men covers willy nilly, I have been taking the mickey out of them a little, playing with what seems to be sub-textual homo eroticism, stern faced warriors grimacing to each other, like something out of Women In Love. But this new cover to Secret Avengers #26 , another Avengers Versus […]
