Christopher Cantwell announced on Twitter that he is doing a passion project with Pasqual Ferry, a five issue mini-series called Namor the Sub-Mariner Conquered Shores.
This is a very, very special thing: I’m getting to do a Namor the Sub-Mariner comic. This is the first idea I ever blind pitched to Marvel and I’m thrilled that they said yes.
The story takes place 100 years into the future on a mostly flooded Earth. Namor rules the world… but in his twilight years he reflects on a mercurial life, how his friends were often also foes, and how so much of the world he knew—and railed against—has vanished. A seasoned, wiser Namor now sets out on a mission of aid and mercy—to save remaining humans on the surface.
True to what I’ve done in the past, the supporting cast will surprise you, and pull from Marvel’s deeper past chapters. I love Bill Everett’s creation SO much, and of course he goes hand in hand with Carl Burgos’ creation I also hold dear… the Human Torch.
So in a way, NAMOR: CONQUERED SHORES builds upon the first war of Marvel heroes in the Golden Age… and answers it with a rematch perched at the end of humankind itself. This book is basically my love letter to Marvel Comics itself.
I drew from Everett, Burgos, Byrne, and even Morrison’s 1 2 3 4. And @PasqualFerry is giving you a take on an unrecognizable future brimming with echoes and ghosts of yesterday that is breathtaking. More soon, and I hope you love this book as much as I’ve loved writing it!
MCU_Facility on Twitter has found what appears to be the official merchandise art of Namor and Attuma from Black Panther 2 Wakanda Forever. Since both Wal-Mart and Target are listing tea towels from a legitimate licensing company called BioWorld, it looks like it is official: Namor and the Atlanteans will be in Black Panther 2, and it appears they will be Mesoamerican.
Joe Quesada opened a tumblr to countdown to Daredevil’s Netflix premiere, but he’s also taking questions — though he’s not answering movie rights and casting and decisions, of course. But you can let him know you’d like to see the rights situation resolved so we can see Namor in film or tv or animated features or games.
Of interest to Namor fans, however, is this lovely piece of art work he did for a friend.
Anonymous asked: Can we get a little clarification on the infamous Namor swimsuit pin-up?
Joe Quesada answered: It’s very simple, the editor of the issue, Chris Cooper, designed the swim suit and pitched the basic concept behind the piece. Namor had to do a little manscaping before wearing it. — Source
