My new stuff

1 comments
Had a few new projects announced recently, including at San Diego Comic Con. This is what I'll be working on for the foreseeable future. Needless to say, I'm pretty damn excited about the whole crazy line-up.

STAR WARS
Marvel's first new Star Wars series, with art by John Cassaday. Coming in January 2015. Star Wars... the whole original cast of characters... lightsabers and X-wings... Vader... holy crap. Still can't get believe that this one is really happening.


THOR
As seen on The View. Yes, The View. The new Thor series kicks off in October, featuring an all-new hammer wielder, as drawn by Russell Dauterman. Enough has been written and said about this one at this point. I'll just say check out THOR GOD OF THUNDER #25 which serves as the bridge between the two series.


MEN OF WRATH
A new creator-owned project, by me and Ron Garney, coming in October from Marvel's Icon imprint. This is probably the darkest crime series I've ever written. But also the one that's been the most directly inspired by my own family history.


SOUTHERN BASTARDS
My ongoing Image series with Jason Latour rolls on. Issue #4 will be out soon, wrapping up the first arc. Thanks to everybody who grabbed up the exclusive t-shirts we were selling at Comic-Con. Those of you who weren't there, stay tuned. You'll have your own chance to wear your Bastard pride soon enough.

Why Thor fans should read Southern Bastards

2 comments

In the current arc of THOR GOD OF THUNDER, grumpy old King Thor is fighting hungry old Galactus, using the might of his magic hammer, Mjolnir.

Now, just imagine that instead of a magic hammer, it was a big gnarled stick, one that maybe has a bit of magic of its own. And instead of coming from Asgard, the grumpy old guy hailed from Alabama. And instead of fighting Galactus...

It was the south's most powerful and vicious high school football coach.

That's SOUTHERN BASTARDS.

It's like THOR. Only with more cursing. And more BBQ. And the same amount of beards.

Make sure your local retailer orders you up a copy.

THOR GOD OF THUNDER #19

6 comments

The next big arc of THOR kicks off in February, with the return of both artist Esad Ribic and Old King Thor. Decide for yourself which is the more imposing figure. We also have the (re)introduction of a big new villain for the God of Thunder: ROXXON. It's been awhile since we've seen the Marvel U's favorite evil corporation in action, but they come roaring back in a huge way in this arc. They've even got a brand new CEO, who's so ruthless he has the nickname The Minotaur. Though I wonder if that's the only reason he has that nickname? There's also lots of S.H.I.E.L.D. action, revolving around Agent Roz Solomon, our gun-toting environmentalist who first appeared back in THOR GOD OF THUNDER #12. Plus submarines, floating islands, flying factories, and oh yeah... King Thor vs. Old Galactus! I'm pretty excited about this one.

THOR: GOD OF THUNDER #19.NOW
JASON AARON (W) • ESAD RIBIC (A/C)
Variant Cover by Milo Manara
Variant Cover by Simone Bianchi
THE LAST DAYS OF MIDGARD begin NOW!
Thor, Asgardian God of Thunder, has always fought to save his adopted home of Earth. But who can he fight when the planet itself is dying? Thor's mortal ally and environmental secret agent Roz Solomon has a few ideas. Namely the world's largest and most nefarious energy company Roxxon, and its ruthless new CEO known as "The Minotaur." Has the God of Thunder finally met his match, in the form of a multinational super-corporation? Meanwhile, many millennia ahead, a future version of Thor faces a very different battle to save what remains of the earth--a battle against the greatest villain the Marvel Universe has ever known—Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds!

THE END OF MY RUN ON WOLVERINE & THE X-MEN

13 comments
As seen in the Marvel solicits for February, issue #42 will be the end of my run on WOLVERINE & THE X-MEN. The original plan was for me to write both WatXM and AMAZING X-MEN as sister titles. One dealing with the school, the other with the X-Men from that school going on adventures out in the world. But unfortunately my schedule just didn't allow that. So I've been writing the post-Battle of the Atom arc of WatXM as my goodbye to that series and to the Jean Grey School. Believe me, it wasn't easy for me to step away from this book. I've loved building that school and writing those characters, both the students and the teachers, as much as I've loved anything I've done in comics. But the school itself isn't going anywhere. And I'll still be writing a lot of those same characters over in AMAZING. And I've got lots of other stuff coming up that demanded my time, like THOR and SOUTHERN BASTARDS and some new things I can't tell you about just yet.

So I'll save all my tearful goodbyes until we get to the end, but for now, just let me say THANK YOU once again to everybody who's bought this book along the way. Thank you for embracing such an offbeat X-series. 42 issues of Bamfs and Doop and sentient lawns? I love you all for helping make that happen.

JGS forever.
