Marvel Shocker: Charles Soule Replaces Matt Fraction on Inhuman

Well, that explains those delays...

Breaking news!

Marvel just sent out a press release announcing Charles Soule as the new writer of Inhuman. You may remember that The Outhouse reported that the book was delayed three weeks ago, attributing the problems to the recent discovery that popular artist Joe Madureira is actually an Ent, one of the tree people from Lord of the Rings. As it turns out, this is not the case, or, perhaps it is the case, but it is unrelated. It seems that it was editorial differences between Matt Fraction and Marvel that caused the delay and Fraction's eventual replacement, at least according to Bleeding Cool.

Charles Soule is an Outhouse favorite, so we're cool with the result, but if Marvel is pissing off Matt Fraction, that can't be a good thing. Of course, Fraction is still writing Hawkeye for Marvel, but he also has a lot of successful new creator owned comics at Image, like Satellite Sam and Sex Criminals, plus he's the husband of Kelly Sue Deconnick, so he could probably get work anywhere. Fraction gave up his spot on Fantastic Four and FF to concentrate on Inhuman earlier this year. Rich Johnston claims Fraction has other projects in the works at Marvel, but that's not going to stop speculation from running rampant.


Inhuman will hit stores in April. Here's the press release:




New York, NY (December 16th, 2013) - Marvel Entertainment is excited to announce the addition of Charles Soule as series writer for INHUMAN beginning with an All-New Marvel NOW! #1.


Beginning this April, Charles will join superstar Joe Madureira (Avenging Spider-Man, Uncanny X-Men) to introduce the world to Marvel’s newest super hero franchise. Born out of the events of INFINITY and the blockbuster INHUMANITY #1, INHUMAN will change the landscape -- and the fate -- of the entire Marvel Universe.


"Years ago, young(er) Charles made up a list of Marvel characters that would be a blast to someday write - my Marvel Dream Team, basically – and the Inhumans were on that list,” says Soule,   “So getting an opportunity to work with those awesome, strange, classic characters, as well as to expand the existing mythology into cool new places is pretty extraordinary. INFINITY and INHUMANITY work as amazing springboards to new stories and new characters, and I cannot wait to create them!”


“As soon as I read Charles’ first Thunderbolts script, I knew he was going to be a star,” says Marvel Editor in Chief, Axel Alonso.  “His pitch for She-Hulk proved that he thought big and would bring a lot to the world-building of INHUMAN.”


Don’t miss the incredible first issue of INHUMAN this April!


Every FIRST ISSUE bearing the All-New Marvel NOW! branding includes a code for a free digital copy of that same comic on the Marvel Comics app for iOS and Android devices.


Once again, the biggest creators bring you the biggest characters in the biggest stories…and it’s happening NOW!
