BULLET POINTS: Comics News Roundup for October 26, 2011

A comics news article

Bullet Points is Comics Bulletin's weekday roundup of some of the most notable news, criticism, tweets and other craziness of the comics industry. Think of it as the entire comics internet shrunk down into one convenient article, for people with not enough time to check every single comics website on the Internet.

From Image Comics comes a teaser for Ted McKeever's Mondo. Does Image have another chicken-related hit, a la Chew?


HERE'S THE NEWS


Ivan Brandon quits Men of War

Ivan Brandon, writer of the pretty good DC New 52 military themed series Men of War will depart the series with Issue #6, Bleeding Cool reports.

If Rich Johnston's report is correct, Brandon will be another in a long line of writers to depart their New 52 gigs, including George Perez, J.T. Krul and Gail Simone.
