First Look at the new Thor and 'old' Thor character designs

Marvel had released some images of the new female Thor following the announcement on the View last week. Well incoming series artist Russell Dauterman has posted his designs on Tumblr for the characters; both the new female and the 'original' Thor, now known to be unworthy to carry the hammer anymore.

I actually like these designs. He's carried over the Chris Hemsworth hairstyle from the movies on his redesign for the Odinson. While the helmet is a bit large on the new Thor I do understand that Marvel is playing up the mystery of who it is carrying the hammer so it makes sense from a story point.

Hayley Atwell confirms appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly actress Hayley Atwell confirmed she would be appearing as
Agent Carter in the Marvel sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron. She did say if she would be in flashback sequences or if she would be appearing as the elderly Peggy Carter seen in this year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier. This official confirmation from her backs up set reports from this past spring which had her and Evans in London in period outfits.

Here are some photos from that London shoot....

New 5 minute clip from Guardians of the Galaxy

So if the 1 minute clip of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie was not enough well here's a new 5 minute clip released by Marvel yesterday.

Insight Studios Group Heads to Baltimore Comic Com

From Press Release:
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND - July 21, 2014 - From the early Vertigo hit Breathtaker to CBS TV's hit series The Millers, and from First Comics'Mars to the cutting edge digital presentation of Return of the Human in Aces Weekly, Baltimore's own Insight Studios Group has a long track record of breaking new artistic ground. Since Insight's founding in 1978, Blood of the InnocentTug & BusterDoctor CyborgEZ StreetLone Justice,GregoryRadical DreamerJonny QuestTarzan, and many other characters, concepts, and adventures have flowed from the pens, pencils, keyboards, and brushes of the studios' creators.
Anchored by Insight Studios founders Mark Wheatley (Frankenstein Mobster) and Marc Hempel (Sandman: The Kindly Ones), the group has always viewed the Baltimore Comic-Con as sort of their home base, an annual gathering of studio members even as the studios' reach expanded across many different states. The fifteenth edition of the Baltimore Comic-Con - which marks the fifteenth time Insight has set up at the show - sees the convention roster growing to include longtime studio member Allan Gross (Road Song), writer-director Robert Tinnell (The Wicked West), and newcomer Darrenn Canton (Tunnels & Trolls) in addition to Wheatley and Hempel. And one never knows what Friends of Insight Studios might show up at the Baltimore Convention Center over the September 5-7, 2014 weekend.

"I talk with all the Insight guys quite a bit. We're always planning projects and keeping up on life events. But we rarely all get into a room together. The price we pay for busy schedules and the convenience of the Internet," said Wheatley.
Even though 2014 is little more than half over, it's already been a very full year for the creators who make up the studio. Hempel presented his new series, The Love Brothers, this past year in the digital Aces Weekly, and he and Wheatley are now working with Titan Books to issue a new, restored edition of their Breathtaker graphic novel.

Gross, who is best known as writer of the syndicated Tarzan newspaper strip, has just returned to comics from other media projects. His new graphic novel project reunites him with Wheatley.

Tinnell, in addition to writing the award-winning graphic novel series Flesh & Blood, has been busy with a slate of projects including the just-completed documentary, That $#!% Will Rot Your Brain: How The Monster Kids Transformed Popular Culture.

Canton is the new kid at Insight. A fantasy illustrator, Darrenn will be sketching and painting at the show. He'll have prints for sale, too, just like his studio mates.

The last year has been a big one for Wheatley in particular. He reached his largest audience ever as his work was featured prominently on the hit CBS comedy The Millers. He co-developed and illustrated the ground-breaking Return Of The Human series for the digital comics anthology Aces Weekly, created a new Tarzan story for Dark Horse, illustrated covers for comics, provided illustrations for books and magazines, and he just completed a lengthy graphic novel for reality TV king, Thom Beers (Deadliest CatchIce Road Truckers) in collaboration with Todd Livingston.

The Baltimore Comic-Con will be held Friday, September 5 through Sunday, September 7, 2014, at the Baltimore Convention Center, which is located immediately across the street from the historic Camden Yards sports complex (which includes Oriole Park and Geppi's Entertainment Museum). Tickets, a full guest roster, and additional information is available on the convention's website.
General Admission and VIP Package tickets for Weekend, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are now on sale! for more information and to purchase your advanced tickets now!
