    The whole notion of taking Zub away from these characters bums me out. They can move these characters around, consolidate etc, but I feel like it wont be as good. I like the New Avengers idea. Reading Champions now it feels obvious to me that Zub is being cut short with his "Champions" stories.

    There's been a suggestion in the thread about Ironheart #9 that her book is being used as a testing ground for a revival of New Warriors. Champions has a lot in common with them, and she's teaming up with Silhouette because her brother is the big bad of Riri's series.

    IDW's solicits are out. If you enjoyed the Weirdworld arc of Champions, the same creative team are on a new Dungeons and Dragons title.


    Dungeons & Dragons: Infernal Tides #1
    Jim Zub (w) • Max Dunbar (a & c)

    A new Dungeons & Dragons adventure begins here!

    Minsc and his friends are caught in the middle of devil-tainted corruption that has taken hold of Baldur’s Gate. Unravelling the secret of its source will take our heroes to unexpected places and threaten the sanctity of their very souls. Even if they survive this perilous journey, there will be Hell to pay!

    Infernal Tides continues the D&D comic odyssey written by Jim Zub (D&D: Evil at Baldur’s Gate, D&D: Shadows of the Vampire, Avengers) with artwork by Max Dunbar (Avengers, D&D: Legends of Baldur’s Gate)!

    As for Marvel's solicits, we got those yesterday. The Champions relevant titles listed are Magnificent Ms. Marvel, Miles Morales: Spider-Man, Spider-Verse (starring Miles), Ironheart, and Agents of Atlas (starring Brawn).

    I guess on the positive side, for Zub, Champions was a test bed for this book .

    D&D is his real passion. I'd hardly call Champions a test bed though. As the solicit states, this isn't his first D&D comic series.

    Yeah, he's been doing Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder comics for years. It's not a bad side hustle alongside being an animation professor. I would recommend anyone who enjoyed the Weirdworld arc of Champions to give some of them a chance. Or even his Skullkickers series from Image.
    Continuity, even in a "shared" comics universe is often insignificant if not largely detrimental to the quality of a comic.

    Die - House/Powers of X - Once & Future - Runaways

    Nobody cares about what you don't like, they barely care about what you do like.

    Just realised - they screwed up those credits. Max Dunbar has never drawn Avengers. He doesn't usually work for Marvel at all, Zub brought him in specifically for Warriors of the Weird, and the only other Marvel comics he's done are part of issue 5 of Slott's Iron Man (published in the same month as Champions #25) and the upcoming Alpha Flight one-shot.

    Definitely oops - it wouldn't even be solicited for November if issue 11 actually existed. I would imagine there'll be an issue of something else included instead. One of the solo books.

    In other news... live action Kamala coming soon.
