    Default How WEIRD do you want your WORLD?

    One of the things I'm most excited about regarding the upcoming SECRET WARS stuff is Jason Aaron and Mike Del Mundo's Weirdworld. Check out the solicits for the first two issues:

    Issue #1:
    Welcome to the wildest, most dangerous new corner of the Marvel Universe. Welcome to Weirdworld.
    • A world of swords and sorcery and strange, perverted science. A world where one barbarian walks alone, on a dark and savage quest though all things weird and fantastic from throughout Marvel history.
    • His name is Arkon. A lost man in a lost world. Follow him if you dare.

    Issue #2:
    Weirdworld is where the lost things go. Like the barbarian lord Arkon, who’s now prisoner of the underwater apes.
    • Or like his cellmate, a mysterious one-eyed man who appears to be made out of rock and calls himself a Crystal Warrior…

    If you're like me, and you love it when Marvel utilizes forgotten or abandoned concepts from the oddest corners of the MU, then this should be something to get excited about!

    There's very little info out about this series, so what I most want to know is what/who you'd like to see show up in this! What crazy characters do you want to see Jason Aaron write about? What manic monsters do you want to see drawn by (the super-amazing) Mike del Mundo?

    -Pav, who wonders if this is where we'll see Obnoxio the Clown...

    You want it weird, why not add characters from Marvel's cartoony Star Comics imprint? Or the Seuss-like characters from the dimension Here (And There)? Or Slapstick!

    I'm really hoping Weird ends up being closer to obscure than zany.

    Not a big Jason Aaron fan, but I'm getting it because Mike Del Mundo is on art, and he's fantastic.

    I was already sold by the title (can't wait to get my hands on the Weirdworld TPB coming out next month), but the inclusion or Arkon was a bonus... Now the addition of (I assume) Warbow from Crystal... I couldn't be more excited.

    My only concern is that Arkon, Warbow and Weirdworld itself may be alternate versions. I would 100% rather see the characters and locales as they were from previous appearances.

    I want my world very weird! This is one of the more exciting new titles for me, perhaps even the most exciting. I hope Marvel keep it separate from most of the cape stuff though.

    I'm really looking forward to Weirdworld. I wish it was an ongoing thou. I've loved Arkon since forever (lol! truthfully since i saw him in X-Men TAS)

    I hope i see some Gargoyles, Goblins, Weres, Elves, Dwarves, Dragon and many many many more mythical creatures

    Not familiar with this.

    QFT. He's the only artist that makes something a "must consider buying." (I tend to care more about characters, then writers.) Do we know for certain that he's doing the interiors of the book?

    How crazy would it be if we saw THE Gargoyles from the cartoon?

    As a fan of Bishop: the Last X-Man, I'd love to see the Kith and/ or Nom's race of giants.

    I'm thinking this title is for those itching for a Conan type comic. Maybe alittle bit of He-Man

    Yeah, obviously the genre of fantasy is going to be at play here. However, in the solicits it mentions "perverted science" so I wonder if we met get some weird mad scientists and their creations as well.

    -Pav, who can imagine the fun Jason Aaron had researching for this comic...

    I was hoping it would be a return of the original Weirdworld, but it sounds like they are just appropriating the name.
