wolvie.jpgComic book fans are waiting for Marvel Comic’s “indie project,” an unnamed anthology that throws independent comic artists into the Marvel universe.

Recently Marvel editor-in-chief Joe Quesada revealed more about the indie project list: “Just to name a few of the talents involved, we’ve got Paul Pope, Stan Sakai, Paul Hornschemeier, Dash Shaw, Junko Mizuno, Jim Rugg, Corey Lewis … and a bunch more small press superstars contributing some truly amazing stories.
