Marvel’s comic book of the year: Age of Ultron No. 10On March 21st the publishers announced that Gaiman's angel will have his first Marvel appearance in "Age of Ultron" No. 10 – drawn by Quesada – as soon as June. She'll reappear in "Guardians of the Galaxy" No. 5 in July, a title for which Gaiman will co-write with Brian Michael Bendis. Marvel Entertainment is also going to push this series by a film under the same title, by the way.
Neil Gaiman is mostly popular for a number of fantasy novels as well as his comic book series "The Sandman", his cooperation with British artist Dave McKean, and his work for "Marvel 1602." He created Angela in 1993 for Todd McFarlane’s "Spawn" No. 9. After a ten year copyright dispute between Gaiman and Image Comics co-founder Todd McFarlane the pair has finally reached "a confidential settlement" in early 2012. As a result Neil Gaiman is now the confirmed holder of all copyrights on "Angela" and therby free to bring her into the Marvel Universe.
