David F. Walker and Chris Samnee Say Goodbye to Marvel
Now, it looks like we can expect Walker to bring his talents elsewhere for the foreseeable future.

Yesterday, a press release asked, "Where Is Wolverine And What Is His Shocking Secret?" Today, a press release declares, "Captain America: Back On Ice…The Answer Will Shock You!"

Marvel Legacy
Jason Aaron is a good writer, and, though I get the impression he didn't get a lot of say in the contents, the character presentations are solid. Esad Ribic and the murderer's row of all-star artists, such as Chris Samnee, Steve McNiven, Daniel Acuna, Alex Maleev, Mike Deodato Jr., Jim Cheung, and others do a rockin'[...]
