David Gabriel is Marvel's SVP of Sales & Marketing (and tipped to be more by the rumour mill). He's also the guy who once jokingly promised a death every quarter at Marvel Comics to help promote sales.
Which Marvel have since provided.
And it doesn't look like he's stopping any time soon. In a rather incestuous fashion, he was "interviewed" by his previous employee, James Viscardi, for the site Vascardi now runs, Comicbook.com in which he talked about Marvel's business matters.
The kind of discussion Marvel reps said they don't have with comic book sites. As well as taking about Axis, Thor, the delayed Death Of Wolverine and his big surprise for January, he also told the site.
Oh and speaking of death, we were just talking about the upcoming death of a character in March in issue #250 of a character with the word Dead in his name. Go figure.
That would work out as the 250th issue of Deadpool if you added all his many series up over the years…
There's no chance Magneto could kill him is there? Seriously, there's only so much the man can take…
