Mark Bagley To Leave Ultimate Spider-Man

From Newsarama:

With Ultimate Spider-Man #100 due any week now and the record-setting Ultimate Spider-Man #103 establishing Brian Bendis & Mark Bagley as the record-holding creative team at Marvel (having produced more consecutive issues of any superhero series in Marvel history, surpassing the 102-issue Stan Lee-Jack Kirby run on Fantastic Four), it appears that the end of an era is soon approaching. Mark Bagley has confirmed his plans to leave the series after Ultimate Spider-Man #110.

Part of me is kinda sad that he's leaving the book. I thought his art perfectly complemented Bendis' script. Still, 110 issues is a hell of a run. I wish him luck on whatever his next endeavor may be. As to who I think should take over, I'm going with Mark Brooks. I thought he did a great job on the annuals.

Spider-Man Crawl Space Podcast

D'oh! I've been pre-empted! Brad, Spidey Dude, and Morbius over at Spider-Man Crawl Space have released the first episode of their podcast. They cover the Civil War delays, Spider-Man unmasking in Civil War #2, and "all things Peter Parker in general". Check the podcast out via the Spider-Man Crawl Space link in the "Links" section.

Civil War Delay

As you probably know by now, due to Steve McNiven being given improper time to begin on Civil War, issues #4 and #5 have been delayed, effectively pushing back the event and its tie-ins. Here's a list of the new release dates for the Spider-Man related titles:

CIVIL WAR SHIPPING UPDATES
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 535 (JUN061938; $2.99) moves to 9/27
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 536 (JUL061941; $2.99) moves to 11/22
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 537 (AUG062018; $2.99) moves to 1/4/07

NOT YET SOLICITED
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 538 moves to 1/24/07

I'm almost ready to record the first episode. It's alot harder than I thought to just step up to the mike. Probably just first episode jitters. The first episode should be up by next week at the latest.

Direct To DVD Spider-Man Series Announced

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Sony Pictures Television is becoming the first major television show to enter the direct-to-DVD market for series. SPT has launched Culver Entertainment, a company focused on developing and producing drama, comedy and animated series exclusively for DVD and international distribution. The first project under the Culver Entertainment banner will be a new animated Spider-Man series. The first 13 half-hour episodes of the show are expected to be released next year.

Hmm...interesting. I'm a bit skeptical after Spider-Man: Unlimited and the MTV series. I'm going to withhold judgement until screenshots or a trailer surface.
