BRILLIANT! Bendis and Bagley Reunite for New Comic Book Series
The news out of C2E2, the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, is that Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley are teaming up again for a new book titled, appropriately enough, Brilliant. You may remember that Bendis and Bagley made history with their 111-issue run on Ultimate Spider-Man. You may also remember that we here at Geek Force Five think that Mark Bagley rules. So, we are most excited.
According to iFanboy, Marvel’s press release describes the new series as “the story of a handful of college age geniuses that challenge each other to solve the mystery of superpowers.” iFanboy suggests we “think [of] the kids from The Social Network—puting [sic] their minds not to social networking but superpowers,” which sounds pretty freaking cool to us. Newsarama has an interview with the pair.
What do you say, Fivers? Excited to see Bendis and Bagley back together again? Would you rather they were working on something higher profile than this new creator-owned book? Let us know!
