Since last month, Marvel has been teasing the announcement of all of their Marvel NOW books with black images featuring the names of the creative team and a single word that represents the spirit of the book. This program has gone off without a hitch, creating excitement and anticipation amongst readers. That is why Marvel is quite unhappy that their string of flawless teasers has been interrupted by a clumsy intern who spilled a glass of tomato juice on the pristine artwork for this SURVIVE teaser for a book by Dennis Hopeless and Kev Walker.

With little time to recreate the image, Marvel had no choice but to run it as is, with splashes of the beverage all over the letters. "We're very disappointed that the teaser didn't turn out as planned," said Joe Quesada in a made-up statement. "However, we're hoping this will parallel a similar happy accident in 2004 when an intern spilled hot coffee on Chuck Austen, transforming him into Brian Michael Bendis. The rest is history."

Bleeding Cool's Rich Johnston is suggesting that the book referred to in the teaser might be Secret Avengers, but The Outhouse's sources are saying that the book is a tie-in to the television show Survivor, which could indicate that Marvel is readopting the ill-fated 2006 initiative to have the Marvel Universe crossover with the soap opera The Guiding Light, a failure so epic that it resulted in the cancelation of the long-running show three years later. Survivor Meets The Marvel Universe is due out in December.

Marvel will probably release another teaser tomorrow, and The Outhouse would advise keeping it in a plastic binder to avoid another beverage mishap.
