AICN reports on Wizard World Chicago

Ain't It Cool News has just posted a hugely comprehensive report on Wizard World (but watch out for harsh language if you follow this link...).

Apparently, they were in the good graces of some publishers, as they got more than a few juicy tidbits that Josh and me missed. Highlights include....

- Bendis will be writing a follow-up to DISASSEMBLED/HOUSE OF M in NEW AVENGERS #26 when he brings back Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch. Expect the internet to heal from splitting in half shortly thereafter.

- Leinil Yu is going to be the new penciler on NEW AVENGERS.

- ULTIMATES 3 and 4 are clearly gonna have a much different approach and mood than what we’re used to so far. Worse? Better? Hard to say, but it’s gonna have Ultimate Venom, so make of that what you will…

- There’s a new ILLUMINATI miniseries on the way, featuring your favorite heroes sitting around a table and talking about big events from Marvel’s past. Five issue mini from Brian Michael you-know-who.

- Morrison is also trying to work Bat-Mite into his run on BATMAN.

- Around issue #30 of 52, we get to see just what Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson, and Tim Drake did during their year off. Morrison is working on this section of the story.

- Marv Wolfman and Dan Jurgens are going to be returning Dick Grayson to glory in NIGHTWING. The run has been extended from one arc to an as yet to be determined number of issues.
