Axel Alonso Teases About Joe Madureira's Next Spider-Man Project

Over at Comic Book Resources they interviewed Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso who answered a question about Joe Madureira's next Spider-Man arc.

"Can you reveal when Zeb Wells and Joe Madureira will be returning to Avenging Spider Man for the Elektra and Wolverine team up? It's been months since we last saw Elektra and its killing me waiting for her Zeb-scripted return!"
Alonso: We were just discussing how to announce some changes with the "Avenging Spider-Man" plans. Instead of me sitting through a bunch of meetings with visionary editor (and my own personal life coach) Stephen Wacker about it, let's just make some news here:
Joe [Madueira] and Zeb [Wells'] new Spidey/Wolverine/Elektra story has changed shape and is becoming a slightly bigger project. In addition, Dan Slott’s plan for "Amazing Spider-Man" has grown in scope and will affect just about every Spidey-related book in its wake. So, while Zeb and Joe get ready for their big project, we’ve got some big "Avenging Spidey" stories in the pipe, written an drawn by some of the biggest names in comics...before -- drum roll, please -- Chris Yost comes on as new regular writer, working closely with Slott to reflect some of the big Spidey events coming up soon.
Not to fear, we’re all big fans of the work Zeb’s been doing on the book -- this week’s Captain America story with Leinil Yu is particularly special -- so he comes back for one more issue in August that honors Spidey’s 50th anniversary with a very personal story. More on that in the next few weeks.

Here's the teaser page for Joe Madureira's and Zeb Wells secret new book. It sounds like it might not be under the Avenging Spider-Man Title but something much bigger... exciting news for sure!

That's look like a killer page. I don't know what it is about. It does remind me of a page of Battlechasers with the two guards who talk then something bad comes to town.

It's great Mad is doing comics again.

The character hitting the guards has bandaged hands and long black hair. Could this be Echo, former New Avenger and a total fox if drawn by Mad :)?

...could it be Electra with the arm bandage?

Marvel's New X-Men Series 'House of X' to Feature a Joe Madureira Variant Cover

Marvel Comics recently announced two new X-Men series debuting this July written by acclaimed writer Jonathan Hickman. They are titled 'House of X' and 'Powers of X' and will redefine the X-Men and their place in the Marvel Universe. Joe Madureira had a successful run on Uncanny X-Men back in the 1990's and Marvel has commissioned him to draw various variant covers for X-Men over years since then. Fans can now anticipate a new variant cover by Joe for the new 'House of X' series this July since his name is in the solicitations.

Here's an image promotion the new X-Men series (not drawn by Joe Mad!).

New Sketch by Joe Madureira Featuring Gambit and Rogue from Uncanny X-Men

Rewards are still going out from the Kickstarter campaign that helped fund Battle Chasers: Nightwar. One backer reward level got you a sketch of your choice drawn by Joe Madureira. This drawing brings back all kinds of memories from Joe's run on Uncanny X-Men. During the run, Gambit and Rogue had a budding romance and now we get to see how much Joe's art has developed since those 90's stories. Here's what Joe had to say about it:

What year is this again?! The 90’s are alive and well! One of my favorite #kickstarter backer reward sketchies. Most of you were babies the last time I drew these two. 😂 Thanks Kin! ❤️ #gambit #rogue #XMen #25yearsLater
