~~~ MARVEL BUZZ


The House of Ideas makes headlines on the Internet and beyond! Sample the Marvel Buzz, collected daily for your convenience at www.marvel.com. Here's what's hot, direct from the World Wide Web:


ITEM! One of the more singular events in recent comic-book history was the unprecedented fan reaction to Joe Quesada's announcement that Marvel Comics was canceling SPIDER-GIRL. The emotional firestorm that decision ignited took not only the editor-in-chief and the entire House of Ideas by surprise, it also caught series writer Tom DeFalco completely off guard. (Source: WizardWorld)


ITEM! Marvel Comics is close to severing ties with the Comics Code Authority, the independent agency that has been giving an all-purpose "seal of approval" to comic books since 1954. (Source: Comics Newsarama)


ITEM! DEADPOOL editor Mike Marts has given X-Fan a sneak peek at the first six -- count 'em, SIX! -- pages from May's issue #54, in which the Merc-With-A-Mouth takes on the Punisher! (Source: X-Fan)


Extra! Extra! Read all about it:

ITEM! The Top 100 rankings are in, and X marked the spot for Marvel in May!

Plus: By the time this startling story is over, Iron Man will have a new suit of armor -- and readers will have helped create it through a Wizard contest!


BLACK PANTHER #32
COVER BY SAL VELLUTTO & BOB ALMOND
CHRISTOPHER PRIEST/SAL VELLUTO/BOB ALMOND

TRADE PAPERBACK
PAINTED COVER BY TIM BRADSTREET
GARTH ENNIS/STEVE DILLON/JIMMY PALMIOTTI
Nominated for just about every Wizard Fan Award there is, this 12-part saga by the twisted team of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon brought back Frank Castle with a vengeance. Uzis, knives, thermite explosives, the Empire State Building ... whatever it takes to put the scum of Manhattan down, the Punisher will use it. The scourge of the underworld returns to clean up the city, inspiring three insane vigilantes to imitate him and raising the ire of the dreaded (and hysterical) Ma Gnucci. And do we even have to mention ... Spacker Dave?!

X-TREME X-MEN #1
COVER BY SALVADOR LARROCA
CHRIS CLAREMONT/SALVADOR LARROCA
Humanity is at a crossroads. Mankind will choose a future of glory ... or utter annihilation. The path was mapped out a century ago by the blind mutant seer known as Destiny and recorded in her 13 Books of Truth. As seen in X-MEN #109, one volume has come into the possession of Professor X's charges; now, Rogue, Beast, Bishop, Thunderbird, Psylocke, Sage and Storm choose to leave the safety of the X-Mansion and search for the missing books. But what they don't know is that another force has embarked on the same quest -- a man who is the first manifestation of the true Homo sapiens superior, the rightful inheritors of Earth. And he considers mutants his mortal enemies ... to be killed on sight!
