I’m really excited that the Avengers will be assembling, it just sucks that we have to wait three years for it to happen.

Marvel has revealed that a new Avengers animated series is beginning production to coincide with the releases of their live actions films The First Avenger: Captain America and The Avengers. The show will be titled The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and will be produced by Marvel Animation.

The series will feature the same team that is rumored to be taking center stage in the film adaptation; Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Ant-Man, and the Wasp. The heroes are forced to come together “when the planet is threatened by super villains, time traveling conquerors, alien invaders, mythical monsters and mad robots bent on the total destruction of humanity”.

Also in production from Marvel Animated are Wolverine and the X-Men, Iron Man: Armored Adventures, Marvel Super Hero Squad, and The Black Panther.

Secret Invasion #7, Marvel’s penultimate issue of their universe spanning Skull invasion was released today.  The issue was written by Brian Michael Bendis with pencils by Leinil Francis Yu.

Marvel Comics’ official description: “THIS IS IT!! The Marvel Universe versus the Skrull Empire – a battle of unity and spirit the likes of which the Earth has never seen. The comic event of the year starts its shocking conclusion.”

Personally, I’m waiting for the story in trade paperback.  After Civil War, I soured on waiting for months between cliffhanger issues and would prefer to read it all together.

Have you been enjoying HBO and Alan Ball’s take on vampire lore in “True Blood”?  Than you might be interested in the 40 page prequel comic book that they have released online, “True Blood: The Great Revelation”.

The issue focuses on a centuries-old vampire who is reflecting about what it has been like to be a vampire and what the development of synthetic blood (aka Tru Blood) means to his kind. He journeys to Japan to see where the product is developed and to decide whether he wants to support vampires “coming out of the coffin” or not.

You can check out a few preview pages below and read the whole issue here. The comic features art by Jason Badower, and was written by David Wohl, from a story by Brian Cain and Gregg Hale.

And don’t forget, an all new episode of “True Blood” airs tonight at 9pm on HBO.
