Written by Daniel Way with pencils by Paco Medina, Deadpool #4 is the first part of “Say ‘Hi’ to the Bad Guy”. This two part story is a much better starting point for the new series which unfortunately began smack in the middle of Marvel’s universe wide crossover event “Secret Invasion”.  I’ve always liked Deadpool, aka the Merc with a Mouth, because hes a fun character who is usually thrown into off the wall (and over the top) situtations.

Marvel’s official description: His mission in “Secret Invasion” completed, Deadpool goes back to business as usual, completely unaware that he’s been sold up the river by a villain of incalculable guile — a villain who won’t soon forget — or forgive — Wade’s sins. As the Skrull War winds to its climactic conclusion, the Merc with a Mouth has no idea that the worst for him is yet ahead.

The issue comes out on November 19. Click these thumbnails to check out the full pages.

Writer/director Kevin Smith returns to comics with Batman: Cacophony, a three issue limited series that focuses on the Dark Knight.  Smith is no stranger to comics with critically acclaimed runs on Daredevil and Green Arrow, but the talented writer is also known for long delays between issues (Spider-Man/Black Cat: The Evil that Men Do and Daredevil/Bullseye: The Target are prime examples). With Cacophony being only three issues, I don’t think we’ll have the delay problem here.

The issue hits stands next week on November 11th, with art by Walt J. Flanagan and Sandra Hope. Here is DC Comic’s official description:  Best-selling comic book writer/director Kevin Smith steps into Gotham City to write this 3-part miniseries event! Practically from out of nowhere, the mysterious masked killer known as Onomatopoeia returns and sets his sights – and sounds – against The Caped Crusader!

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.
