In his newest MyCup o’ Joe column, Marvel chief Joe Quesada introduces a new project coming out in January called Dr. Doom and the Masters of Evil (above), pimps upcoming changes to the Ultimate Universe and talks about Marvel’s recent digital comics announcements (which you can get up to speed on here, here and here):
I know some may look at the digital world with fear, but I always go back to this one place: When collected editions started to really become commercially significant, everyone and their mother was claiming this the end of the monthly comic with complete certainty. Perhaps these are the same folks who thought the Ultimate Universe a dumb idea? Anyway, I kept telling folks that I believed that both trades and monthly comics will thrive, and that one would help the other. I feel the exact same way about the world of digital comics. I think it will help monthly comic sales as well as trade sales. There will be people who will like one form over another and there will be those who will like multiple formats.
One of the stories I’m looking forward to checking out is the Frankenstein/Werewolf by Night meetup, which will feature artwork by longtime webcomics creators Dean Haspiel and Joe Infurnari.
