According to the press release...
"This movie-length epic launches an all new original graphic novel line for Marvel Entertainment, featuring the biggest super heroes brought to life by the best creators and debuts in a high-end, oversized format featuring sophisticated packaging and design."
So after reading the underlined (by me) part I immediately thought about my favorite artist currently working for Marvel. I think this would be the perfect opportunity for your art to shine even more than usual and the perfect way for Marvel to reward your loyalty to them. In a perfect world we could ask for a ClanDestine return via this OGN line, but it seems "the biggest super heroes" line means they're keeping this for their core heavy hitters, at least for now. Regardless of the characters involved, I sincerely hope they offer you drawing (hopefully writing/drawing) one of these new "high-end, oversized" books.
So I guess my question is: would you be enticed by this prospect? Or in other words, do you see any possible advantage in this approach compared to the typical assignment of a 4 or 5 issue story arc on a regular monthly comic-book or mini-series?
I mean, come to think of it, you were called upon 20 years ago when Marvel started producing bookshelf ready "special editions" in the so-called Prestige format popularized by Frank Miller's Dark Knight, and the result was 2 stunning looking books such as Wolverine: Bloodlust and Excalibur: The Sword is Drawn. What intrigues me is if you recall those two experiences, and the resulting books, with any more fondness than the more habitual monthly comic-book assignments, and therefore if you would be looking forward to be offered similar projects again.
