This week in the news we talk about the Marvel Comics full-page ads that popped up in single issues hyping various creative teams, discuss the impact of the Lion Forge and Oni Press merger, lament the fact that Heroes in Crisis was rescheduled to line up with Doomsday Clock‘s latest issue, discuss Marvels Annotated #4 being pushed back 5 weeks, and review the Netflix “first look” deal with Dark Horse Comics.
