Fresh off Marvel’s latest three-day editorial retreat, Alonso talked about the contributions of a new addition to that usual crew — “Ms. Marvel” writer G. Willow Wilson, who the E-i-C revealed is now Marvel exclusive and working on as-yet unrevealed material along with the monthly adventures of Kamala Khan. Alonso also reflected on the recently confirmed news that more than one million copies of the new “Star Wars” #1 have been sold to retailers, and the alternate means of distribution the publisher has employed for the issue. All that, plus insights into the latest Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver-related revelations, the new “Moon Knight” creative team of Cullen Bunn and Ron Ackins, Gerry Conway returning to “Amazing Spider-Man” and answers to your questions, directly from the CBR Community.
Lots of interesting stuff this week!
With 20th Century Fox’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” now in theaters, Alonso — group editor of the X-books for years — shares his thoughts on what made Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s original 1981 story so significant to Marvel history. Alonso also sheds a bit of early insight into the upcoming Rick Remender-written event “AXIS,” which was officially announced this week via this month’s cover of “Previews.” Switching to the present, Alonso expresses enthusiasm for the original Nick Fury’s role in “Original Sin,” and details news from Marvel’s August 2014 solicitations, like Gerry Duggan taking on “Hulk” writing duties, “Sex Criminals” co-creator Chip Zdarsky making his Marvel debut, and the future of “Moon Knight.” Plus, your questions, straight from the CBR Community!
