COMMUNITY BANNER: a brand new banner this month from [livejournal.com profile] perpetuations, beautiful and suitably atmospheric for Halloween as much as darker (winter) days so I thought I'd put it up a little earlier than November :) If you'd like to make a banner for our community, especially any seasonally themed ones, we'd love to see them! Send them in to be_compromised@hotmail.com
A few banner making things to note )

ALL THE THINGS FRIDAY: It's been quiet, but ATTF is still going until December. Please Sign Up and make suggestions HERE to make Fridays fun.

HALLOWEEN: Keep your eyes peeled for a little something hitting the comm at witching hour tonight in time for October 31st!

SECRET SANTA: Hope you're all having fun getting creative for this year's exchange! If you didn't manage to sign up or would like to get even more involved you can volunteer here to be a graphics maker, pinch hitter, beta reader, or cheerleader.

DOCTOR STRANGE: we have a discussion post HERE. Please play nice and don't post spoilers anywhere on the comm, keep them on the discussion post. (Nope, I have no idea if this will affect Clint or Natasha or how it'll impact the MCU as a whole, because I haven't seen it yet, but hey, new Marvel film!)

RECS: [livejournal.com profile] meatball42 posted a rec list this week - check it out :) Don't forget that we like ALL THINGS Cint and/OR Natasha in these parts, anything with one or both of our assassins in, all pairings and team fic and what have you welcome, and we definitely love recs. What're you been reading or spotted recently? Let us know in the comments or feel free to do some rec posts of your own.

IN THE WIDER WORLD WIDE WEB: Marvel Big Bang is in the middle of posting. I have no idea what else is going on - probably something with YuleTide - give us a shout in the comments and let us know what's happening and what seasonal fun you're all involved with!

COMNUNITY BANNER: this one is from [livejournal.com profile] allisnow, an oldie but a goodie for our favorite assassins. If you’d like to make a banner for the top of our community please do – we love having new banners every month! Send them in to be_compromised@hotmail.com

A couple of things to note:
1) Everyone is invited to play, seriously, everyone!
2) Banners must be safe for work.
3) Banners must have a width of 800 and a height of 350 and preferably be a png or jpg file.
4) When new films etc come out please don’t use images that could be spoilers until general DVD release. (If you want to use something and you're not sure if it counts as a spoiler or not, PM me or email.)
5) Banners should contain both Clint and Natasha.

CIVIL WAR: has now been out everywhere for over a month at least, and so we're lifting our spoiler ban -- that is to say, you are free to post all the things! Please do continue to be courteous in your discussions, but anyone who wants to talk about the film no longer has to use the discussion post to do so.

ALL THE THINGS FRIDAY: You can sign up to host, suggest ideas, and see what’s coming up at our sign up post. No hosts on the post means not ATTF, so do come and play – we have spaces for most of the summer!

IN OTHER NEWS: THE BIG SUMMER PROMPTATHON is fast approaching -- can you feel the excitement?

Speaking of summer, how's everyone's going so far? Anything you've come across that's super wonderful or that you want to share with the comm? Have you found super awesome post Civil War fic or meta or anything else? Feel free to share in the comments!

Hello, best bar!

Is everyone enjoying Secret Santa as much as I am? Because I am loving it!

ATTF is on hiatus for the holidays today (although keep an eye out because I'm going to post the first 2014 signup sheet this weekend). But, fear not! Empire Magazine has brought us cause for flail with their Winter Soldier cover that includes a new pic of Natasha. The full issue with the article will be out next week, at which point we'll hopefully have even more to be excited about, but for now, check out the cover below the cut. :)

Hello, and welcome to our second Monthly Comics Discussion Post!

The comics were fairly light on Clint this month (he'll get a better showing in December), so I thought I'd take the opportunity to talk some more about the upcoming Black Widow comic in 2014. I already posted the cover for issue #1 here, so take a look at the cover for issue #2.


I think you'll all agree with me that that is fucking gorgeous.

Think that's all? Take a look at the the cover for #3 under the cut:

Black Widow #3 )

Artist Phil Noto also released this promo image of Natasha looking ever so stylish in civilian attire, with the key words "Ex-KGB, SHIELD Operative, Avenger, Master Spy, Highly Trained, Killer." If anything, this book won't pull punches. ;)

We also had our very first glimpse at the interior art. There are wolves involved.

Here is one of the first interviews with the writer, Nathan Edmondson.  Here's an intriguing quote:

"I revel most in the little personal moments; her moments alone at home, meetings with her attorney, interactions with animals."

Hmmm... Pizza Dog, perhaps?

This is another interesting interview.

Interviews indicate that Natasha will be working alone for the first arc or two, but team ups with other heroes are planned, so a Clint cameo is a good possibility! Hopefully more information will be released throughout December in preparation for the book's launch, but so far the comic promises to be fairly light on continuity and self-contained, much in the same vein as Matt Fraction's Hawkeye. This makes it a good jumping on point if you haven't read about Natasha in the comics before.

The first issue will be released on January 8, the second later in the month. From then on the comic will ship monthly.

For more Ladies In Comics, Captain Marvel relaunches in March, which is more classic cosmic superhero antics complete with punching dinosaurs. February sees the release of She-Hulk, which appears to be lighthearted, day-in-the-life stuff, and Ms Marvel, which looks to be more teen oriented and centres on a brand new character, Kamala Khan. Elektra launches in March, and will have a much darker tone by the looks of things. 2014 is shaping up to be a good year for female superheroes!

Will you be picking up the Black Widow series? Want to discuss your thoughts and wishes for the comic? What would your ideal Black Widow comic involve? And will she walk Pizza Dog? Discuss!

I come bearing news of a Marvel online sale: The Women of Marvel. My email says that issues are $0.99 (USD) until 11 p.m. EST tonight (11/15) in North America and at "local evening times in other regions."

Most pertinently, The Name of the Rose, Marjorie Liu & Daniel Acuna's excellent Black Widow title is included in this sale. (If you're looking at the sale page, those are going to be the Black Widow #1-5 issues. Yay for confusing comics titles?)

One caveat: Natasha is not with Clint in this arc, though they are friends/partners/fighting companions. The relationship isn't a big part of the story, though. Natasha and her past and who she is and why she does what she does is the focus, and she is amazing throughout. Oh, a second caveat: this is going to spoil the hell out of a major plot point in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. If you know/aren't sure what I'm babbling about, feel free to PM or email me and I'll see if I can confirm or deny w/o spoiling you further.

(If you have a comixology account, they're also running the sale (see here.)

Happy Friday!

Hey everyone! While this is an MCU-centric community, I know a lot of our members are also interested in the comics, so I thought I'd share this piece of news from New York Comic Con.

A Black Widow solo comic is coming soon!

The author is Nathan Edmondson, who I know little about, and the artist is Phil Noto. PHIL NOTO. I don't know if this will be the first cover or if it's just promo art, but check this out.


More details will be announced later this weekend, but at least in terms of art, Natasha looks to be in good hands!

Below is a link to a casting call that went out for Avengers 2. It's got some spoilers so beware, but it also contains some things that might be relevant to your interests. Still waiting on confirmation that this is for real but for now, have fun. :)


Is it 2015 yet? Happy Friday, ya'll.

P.S. - Here's a link to the source they're quoting from. Has some additional info.
And today's movie news is relevant to your interests!

Captain America teams up with Black Widow in Captain America 2. Not a cameo role for our favorite female assassin, but COSTAR!!!

And I'm sad to report the news is not great...

"While the jury is still out on an appearance by Clint Barton AKA Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner)..."


I want to believe, since he signed on for so many movies, he will make an appearance, if only briefly, because it does make sense (at least in the story I've made up in mind). But the fact that we haven't heard anything on the matter yet has me worried... They'll start filming in a couple of months, there should be some sort of confirmation, or hints or something - anything! - by now...

26 January 2013 @ 01:19 pm
So based on this cover, the new Secret Avengers series may be very much RTYI:

Cover under the cut! )

I can't wait until February!!
