Marvel to Launch 365
Saying, "Anything DC can do, we can do better," Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada today announced plans for next summer’s big event. "365 will be a daily comic," he said. "Every single day, including weekends and holidays."
Like 52, the new series will have a team of writers and artists. Twenty-eight writers, including Marvel All-Stars Ed Brubaker, Garth Ennis, Mark Millar, Chris Claremont, Tom DeFalco, Peter David, Brian Bendis, Mike Carey, Robert Kirkman, Paul Jenkins and Roy Thomas, among others. All will follow the direction of "show runner," Andrew Helfer, who is coming on board to see that all the deadlines are met.
"We have everything in place," Quesada said. "Andy lined up Bill Sienkiewicz and George Perez to alternate covers."
The first issue of 365 will go on sale on a year from today. Cover price will be $10.00 each issue. "That’s what it took for Diamond to handle the shipping," Quesada said.
In retaliation, Dan DiDio announced that DC would launch The Hundred Years War. "Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and other super-heroes get stuck in a line at the Motor Vehicles Bureau," he explained. "It’s up to the rest of the DC Universe to fight the universe-threatening evil. Can Comet the Super-Horse and Ambush Bug save the day? Will someone die? Will anyone live? You might think you don’t care, but you will."
