New Avengers #23 (2012) process by Mike Deodato Jr.
The fate of the entire Ultimate Universe lies in the hands two very unlikely champions this January in CATACLYSM: THE ULTIMATES’ LAST STAND #3! From the blockbuster creative team of Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley – the Ultimates know Galactus is not of their universe, and they’re willing to do anything to stop him! Including sending Miles Morales and Ultimate Reed Richards into the Marvel Universe for help! But has Reed redeemed himself in this time of crisis – or is he only out for himself?
“This is the first time we really get to see Ultimate characters explore the Marvel Universe,” said Senior Editor Mark Paniccia. “It won’t be a picnic and will have emotional ramifications for one of the travelers.”
Faced with impossible odds in a strange new universe, are they the saviors of the Ultimate Universe? Or its last two survivors? Don’t miss CATACLYSM: THE ULTIMATES’ LAST STAND #3 this January for the answer!
Anonymous asked: Dear Mr. Bendis, I have an English teacher that has criticized genre fiction feeling it's something geared for younger audience and because of that in class we all read dramatic and personal literature. She's criticized contemporary prose, feeling that readers now don't want to do the work and because of that books are becoming dumber and lazier. You're also an English teacher, do you share the same beliefs?
Obviously I do not share the same beliefs. that sounds ridiculous.
but forget the mountains of evidence that does not support this claim, when I was a student and as a teacher it frustrates me when teachers use their pulpit to try to limit their students desires and imaginations.
when somebody stands in front of a room and criticizes something like contemporary prose all I think is: so they rejected your manuscript
it doesn’t matter what I as a teacher like or don’t like, it’s what inspires my students. it is my job to use their passions to make them better at whatever I’m teaching.
for example, almost every semester I have taught has included students who have a deep love for deep down hard-core manga that I have just not experienced yet. titles I’ve never even heard of and I know some stuff. titles at 1st glance seem like pixies and fairy dust stuff which doesn’t at face value really appeal to me… I would never stand in their way of applying this passion towards their own work. in fact, opposite.
