IDW and DC are teaming up to bring together the heroes of “The Rocketeer” and “The Spirit” for a four-issue pulpy romp crossover event. The series will be helmed by none other than the red hot Mark Waid, with artwork from Paul Smith.
The Rocketeer/Spirit: Pulp Friction will, of course, be a murder mystery that takes place in the gritty streets of Central City and eventually leads to Los Angeles so both heroes will get a crack at the case. The adventure begins July 10th, 2013. READ MORE

Boom! Studios sent out a teaser image today (see below), stating something about “the original Avengers” and Mark Waid. Truth be told I had no idea what it meant until I did some research. Luckily, Bleeding Cool is more hip to the 1960s TV scene than us. Turns out Waid will be writing a “Steed And Mrs Peel” comic based on the classic british sci-fi/espionage show, The Avengers.

Mark Waid has been writing in the comic industry for over 25 years, delivering some of the most memorable runs for major publishers. Waid recently announced that, while he loves working with print comics, he would be starting his own website, offering free original comics on a weekly basis. Waid and John Rogers launched their new site, Thrillbent, this week, and you can already read two digital comics, no matter what electronic platform you are using. Waid wrote, “Thrillbent was created because John Rogers and I believe strongly that comics can and will be a thriving mass medium in the digital age if–IF–they’re created for modern media devices and not exclusively for printed pamphlets that are overpriced, uninviting to new readers, and abominably distributed in only a relative handful of storefronts nationwide.” This is a bold move in an effort to gain new readers, and a huge step forward in the comics industry.
