What goes to press is not necessarily what first went on the drawing
board. Writer and artists both cannot count how many times their
gameplans changed before a story was earmarked for publication. An
editor ultimately decides what goes into a book, and this means that
good ideas get sidelined simply because time is of the essence, and page
constraints do not allow for novel-length plot development and
But with Wizard Extra, you
get the inside scoop on what ideas were on the table for a book before
the editor got out the chopping block. If you want to re-visit some of
your favorite storylines along with a "director’s commentary" feature,
then Wizard Extra treats you to never-before-revealed characters and
alternate storylines from modern comic classics. Whether you’re into the
Avengers, Spider-Man, Superman, or the X-Men, there’s plenty to read in
this book that features exclusive interviews with Alex Ross, Brian
Michael Bendis, Michael Turner, Geoff Johns, Joss Whedon, John Cassady,
and others. Plus, hidden art "easter eggs" treats!
Look for Wizard Extra in the Premiere section of Previews!
