C2E2 News and Announcements (part 2)

The full Secret Avengers lineup is Steve Rogers, Sharon Carter, Black Widow, Nova, Valkyrie, Moon Knight, Beast, War Machine, and the Irredeemable Ant-Man. Wow, that is one hell of a lineup. Can't wait!

Whilce Portacio will be the new Uncanny X-Men penciller starting in July. Leonard Kirk will be the new artist for New Mutants.

Larry Hama is kickstaring the old GI Joe continuity with GI Joe #156, picking up the storylines from the old Marvel continuity! Great news! I do worry that it might render the new IDW stuff obsolete.
Serpentor is coming back in GI Joe: Cobra II! I love that guy!

Grant Morrison is staying on Batman & Robin at least issue 16, and he'll have some role after that.
X-Force is getting cancelled and re-launched as New X-Force by Rick Remender and Jerome Opena. They're going up against Apocalypse! This is going to be a "morally conflicted" team, so maybe my fave Colossus can be there agonizing about killing villains.

X-23 is getting a montly series by Marjorie Liu and an unnamed artist.

The three main Avengers teams will have SHIELD liasons in Sharon Carter, Victoria Hand, and Maria Hill.

Conan the Cimmerian is ending at issue #25, to be replaced by Conan the King by Roy Thomas.
Tim Truman and Tomas Giorello will stay involved with mini-series, the first being King Conan: The Scarlet Citadel."

Victor Gischler and Paco Medina are relaunching X-Men #1. This is the new "big action" title that will lead off with the X-Men vs. Dracula. The best news in regards to this is that Mike Carey will be continuing his stellar X-Men: Legacy title. Thank goodness!

Wolverine Weapon X is getting cancelled and replaced by a new Wolverine title by Jason Aaron and Renato Guedes. I'm pleased, and I'll definitely buy this, but I was really digging Ron Garney's take on Wolvie. Aaron does promise an Alpha Flight appearance though, so that's good.
Daniel Way, Marjorie Liu, and Giueseppe Camuncoli are launching Daken: Dark Wolverine, a new book picking up after the current Dark Wolverine series. I've been impressed with their work so far, this will probably be worth checking out.
