In other Marvel news:

* The publisher has announced Avengers Arena, by Dennis Hopeless and Kev Walker, for December.

Here's how Marvel describes the book:

"Trapped on an isolated island, 16 superhuman young adults (including members of the Runaways, The Avengers Academy and Darkhawk) are given a chilling ultimatum by their demented captor: Fight or die…only one will walk out alive! Thus begins a primal battle that will test the skills, stamina and morals of each combatant. Welcome to Murder World, where the secrets are plenty, alliances are fleeting, and the key to victory might be rewriting the rules of the game. Who will survive?"

"These kids were chosen carefully and with specific story beats in mind. We definitely plan on taking advantage of the broad personality spectrum we have in play," Hopeless said. "Even the characters who die off early make their mark on the story. I didn't throw anyone into the book as cannon fodder."

DC COMICS NEWS ROUNDUP

DC Comics has announced that Ivan Reis and Joe Prado are the new artists on Justice League, beginning with #15 in December.

The issue will begin a crossover event with Aquaman called "Throne of Atlantis."

"There's still questions of what Atlantis is like and what they do and what they're capable of and why they exist and who sank Atlantis," Justice League and Aquaman writer Geoff Johns said. "There's all this mythology behind Atlantis that we're not really sure of and no one really has any answers, and we're about to get the answers."

According to DC, former Justice League artist Jim Lee will be the subject of an announcement that will be made at New York Comic Con next month.

In other DC news:

Here's how the mini-series - set in 1940s Europe - is described:

"With the Nazi war machine on the move, crimes are still committed even in the smallest hamlets. From the world of the JSA: The Liberty Files, witness the birth of a new hero for the ages!"

"Tony and I have been working on The Whistling Skull for a while, now, and it's been an absolute labor of love,” Moore said. "I think he's doing the absolute best work of his career here, and there's no one better to accentuate that than Dave McCaig on color. For readers looking for a new spin on the DC Universe, combined with brand-new headlining characters, I think the book will be a treat, and it's just the first chapter in a much larger story. This initial offering introduces readers to the legacy of the Whistling Skull in a wartime, pulp-infused setting, and should provide something fresh for readers to sink their teeth into."

"This is a long haul, sweet baby that's finally coming together," Harris said. "Clay and I have been developing The Whistling Skull for a few years now. Taking every precaution and the utmost care with every word and every line of ink to make sure we bring you something new, fresh and exciting."
