After a few years sojourn at DC doing TRINITY, among other things, Mark Bagley has returned to Marvel, Bendis, and ULTIMATE COMICS SPIDER-MAN for the “Death of Spider-Man” event.

The biggest event in Ultimate Comics history just got bigger, as superstar artist Mark Bagley returns to Marvel and the series he helped make one of the best-selling of all time!

With a new creative team and the biggest Ultimate story ever, you can’t miss a single issue of Ultimate Comics Spider-Man!
 
“While I appreciate the opportunities DC afforded me, it’s great to be coming home to my first love—Marvel,” said Bagley. “I’m thrilled to be working with Brian again and I’m totally excited by our new project.”
 
Together, the team of Bendis and Bagley revolutionized the comic book world with Ultimate Spider-Man, setting a new record for consecutive issues by a single creative team and producing some of the most acclaimed comic books of all-time.
 
Bendis exclaimed. “I’ve been jumping up and down with excitement! Mark and I have huge plans this year both in both the Marvel Universe and Ultimate Comics Universe and this is just the beginning. Join me in saying my new favorite catchphrase:  Bagley’s Back!!”

  1. I just love the reaction from both fandoms. Most of DC fans seem to be happy that he’s gone and most of Marvel fans are happy that he’s back. And they say you cannot please everybody.

  2. Drew Hart says:

    I thought his recent work on the JLA/JSA crossover was AWESOME and I’m sorry to see him go back to Marvel because that means I won’t be buying any of his work for the forseeable future . . .

  3. I’m really enjoying James Robinson’s writing on JLA and look forward to a new artist announcement.

  4. James says:

    You know what would of been a good announcement along with Bagley?

    A price reduction!!!

    Bagley remains a good and popular artist, but really, isn’t the Ultimate Universe on a downward spiral. Since Marvel rebooted it, with Avengers, Spidey, canceled FF, etc, it hasn’t been the same. While the death of Spider-man will be a hype in the Ultimate Universive, I am sure even in the Ultimate Universe, Marvel will find a cheesy story to bring him back. Oh well, let’s see if this storyline is at least worth my $$$.

  6. Drew Hart says:

    Can DC get Ed McGuinness back in a trade? I’d just about buy the phone book if he drew it. I mean it’s only fair!

  7. Tommy Raiko says:

    I’ll give it a shot

    I find it funny that they claim to have set a record for consecutive issues (with no conditions), yet completely ignore Aragones and Evanier’s run on Groo.
