The New York Times, the place for comics publishers to announce initiatives, has word of two online-exclusive titles from Marvel Digital Comics: Iron Man: Fast Friends and The Incredible Hulk: The Fury Files.
Billed as spin-offs of the movies, the comics apparently will pick up on plot threads from the summer films. They’re weekly series, updated each Wednesday. Both are tied to the release of the movie DVDs.
Iron Man: Fast Friends, which debuts tomorrow, focuses on the friendship between Tony Stark and James Rhodes. It’s written by Paul Tobin, with art by Ronan Cliquet and covers by Dave Bullock.
The Incredible Hulk: The Fury Files, which debuts on Oct. 8, “picks up when Nick Fury receives intel that Thunderbolt Ross’ Super Soldier program has finally produced an unstoppable engine of destruction. When Fury decides to see this ‘hulk’ for himself … stuff starts breaking!” It’s written by Frank Tieri, with art by Salva Espin and covers by Steve Lieber.
