That’s not flying him, that’s discreetly copping a feel.

Those who closely follow solicits have noted the absence of Young Avengers from the just-released February set. They’ve been wondering if that’s the end of our run.
In short: yes.
We were planning on revealing this at next week’s Thought Bubble Young Avengers panel, but the solicits were a…
Discussion and spoilers and bears oh my, beneath the cut.
So glad to see the commentary is up on this fantastic, super-complicated issue. Process details like these remind me why I still want to do comics— even with the insane deadline pressure.
Since launch, Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s Young Avengers has been one of the most dynamic and gorgeous series at Marvel Comics. That tradition is set to continue at the end of this year, when a whole bunch of guest artists are going to come on board for a special New Year’s Eve themed storyline. Announced at Marvel’s Cup O’ Joe panel during San Diego Comic-Con, the confirmed names for Young Avengers include: Joe Quinones, Ming Doyle, Christian Ward, Becky Cloonan, and Emma Vieceli. On top of McKelvie, that’s one hell of a line-up. (via Comic-Con: Young Avengers’ Artist Showcase - IGN)
Very happy we’re getting away with this.
You’re all reading Young Avengers by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie, right? Because Young Avengers is THE BEST. Along with Hawkeye and Daredevil it is the best thing that Marvel are putting out at the moment, and Marvel are on a bit of a hot streak right now. If you’ve read anything else by this team (and i’m pretty sure i have banged on about Phonogram before), or not, you should be reading this. Any comic that can reference Tumblr, sixties pop combos, Game of Thrones AND has a starring role for the norse god of mischief is deserving of your time.
I’ve had an itch to do some fan art bits and pieces for a minute or two, so here we have America Chavez in her stars and stripery (fourth of July and whatnot). I might do more of these (i have a sort of idea for a Loki), but now I should really get on with some work…
hey strayans, this super cute jacket is perf for a miss america chavez cosplay if you’re not feeling up to painting/crafting your own! also a steal at $30.
(unsure if thanx or no thanx to jj for getting me stuck browsing on boohoo; now i know they have it in australia i’m spending hundreds of imaginary dollars in my head)
A sketch dump, I wanted to see how the other characters would look in punk AU. I don’t know if they don’t feel like the characters to you (I myself am not sure of Loki, Chavez and David).
I’ve used references from google. I just want to clarify that this AU’s for fun.
I hope you like it!
That probably went as well as we could have hoped for. It’s reviewed phenomenally. Lowest from any big site was an 8, which is better than being punched by Miss America. It’s done well enough to get a “What’s the big deal?” backlash, which is natural, and a compliment of a sort. Young Avengers fanbase mostly more positive than I could have hoped for, which is nice. A good chunk of the people who were more luke-warm to cold about it were like that for reasons I at least understand and often agree with. And the people I were expecting to hate it hated it, which is always fine. In fact, I’d be more worried if they liked it. Probably the worst thing was a couple of problems slipped through, which we’ll fix in the second-print/trade.
Anyway - I wrote a proverbial shitload here. It goes way behind the curtain in terms of the cold hard maths of comic creation. Next lot will be fluffier, I swear.
And I’ll stress before we go in – this is relatively candid, inside-baseball, picking over choices stuff. Some people find this intrudes on their reading, in a “I didn’t think that worked/I didn’t think that was a problem” way. If you’re one of them, I’d recommend staying away, though it’s worth stressing that all responses to the work are just responses to the work, including my own.
And I’ll put it behind a cut, as it’s really bloody enormous.
This is totally fascinating if you have a copy of the issue handy! Which… I do. So.
Mysterious Girl, our Miss America.
In the earliest prototype stages of Young Avengers, I hit the “Can’t use Eli” note and decided I’d like someone to fill that visual niche. This was before I’d nailed down entirely what I was doing, and wanted to keep at least some…
young avengers: a beginner’s guide
Stephanie Hans’ variant for Young Avengers #2.
• Has Wiccan made a horrible mistake that comes back to bite everyone on their communal posteriors? Spoilers: Yes.
• Does this guest star the Uncanny Avengers? Spoilers: Also Yes.
• A figure from Loki’s past emerges. Friend? Foe? What will it be? Spoilers: It’s Foe.
• And much more from Marvel’s most critically acclaimed book. Yes, we’re saying it’s critically acclaimed and it’s not even out yet. We are very bad.
So how many copies of this issue am I gonna end up owning? (Probably all of them).
dlsakfjskal i’m not sure if i can wait to own every variant cover of this fucking series omg
Yeah, an O’Malley variant cover. You heard.
