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!

Darksiders II: Death Strikes Part I

Here's an amazing new CGI video for Darksiders II. I love how there are Calibretto type war golems in the game... it must be a Battle Chasers reference put in by Joe. Look forward to playing this game!



Darksiders II Behind the Scenes: Death's World

THQ has released a new video for Darksiders II showcasing the games environments and the design behind them. Joe's in the video explaining the concepts for a few of the environments. Darksiders II comes out June 26!

THQ has announced the Darksiders II Collector's Edition. Included in the package are the Limited Edition Darksiders game, exclusive in-game content "Shadow of Death" and "Argul's Tomb DLC," life-sized replica death mask, the Darksiders II soundtrack, and best of all a Darksiders II art book!

The art book will feature work from Joe Madureira and the art team developing Darksiders II. I'm sure there will be unreleased artwork inside so look forward to that when Darksiders II is released on June 26, 2012.
