ROSEMONT, ILL. -- New projects involving Genddy Tartakovsky and Rob Liefeld were announced at Marvel Comics' Mondo Marvel panel at Wizard World Chicago on Friday.

With most of the Marvel crew stranded in New York, Joe Quesada and C.B. Cebulski winged it throught the visual presentation, and were joined by Rob Liefeld.

Following are highlights:

* Genddy Tartakovsky, from Dexter's Laboratory and Samurai Jack, is writing and drawing Cage. "How fun is that going to be?" Quesada said.

Silver Surfer: In Thy Name is written by Simon Spurrier, with art by Tan Eng Huat. It's Huat's first art for Marvel.

"The tone stuff he is doing is absolutely amazing," Cebulski said.

Covers are by Michael Turner, Gabriel Dell'Otto and Paul Pope.

* The new artist of Punisher War Journal is Cory Walker. The next chapter is called "Hunter-Hunted" and involves Kraven.

* Killraven is from Robert Kirkman and Rob Liefeld.

Liefeld said as a youth he was a big fan of the Killraven and Kamandi characters. He was talking to Quesada at Comic-Con about an idea he had for Kamandi, and Quesada suggested he do it at Marvel as a Killraven book.

"It's a new take on Killraven," he said. "We're starting fresh. Killraven's had a lot of great writers and artists in his history, but it's never broken through."

Liefeld said he has booked two issues of the series and it's targted for mid-2008.

* World War Hulk: Aftersmash was announced, although creators were not. Quesada said there were also be announced involving World War Hulk writer Greg Pak.

* Penance: Relentless is by Paul Jenkins and Paul Gulacy.

* The Skrull story will lead into "some pretty shaky stuff," especially next spring.

* Quesada said there's no release date for Young Avengers to return.

* Cebulski said there will be a slight delay between Runaways #27 and Runaways #28.

* Quesada said Nick Fury will show up next year.

* Cebulski said the release of the "lost" Stan Lee/Jack Kirby issue of Fantastic Four shouldn't be too far off.

* Quesada said to look for Ultimate Universe news toward the end of 2007.

* Quesada said he has no drawing plans after Spider-Man: One More Day.

* Cebulski said Professor Xavier's relationship with the X-Men takes an interesting turn during Messiah Complex.

* Quesada said there will be "lots" of new villains in Spider-Man.

* Cebulski said Eye of the Camera, the Marvels sequel by Kurt Busiek and Jay Anacleto, has three issues in the can.

* Captain Marvel, by Brian Reed and Lee Weeks, is targeted for a November launch.
