They had big things to announce. Specifically the return of the brand that put CCO Joe Quesada and Jimmy Palmiotti on the map at Marvel Comics, Marvel Knights, for its 2oth anniversary as an imprint.

And they've signed Cates up to a new exclusive contract at the publisher (sorry DC), giving him the reigns to the imprint — and the books that may come out from it. Quesada told him to "go nuts". Cates will be overseeing all of it.
