Welcome Back, Drums.

The Drummer's back!

Or, at least, the man who modeled the Drummer on himself is back, for the Rick Remender written Uncanny Avengers, one of the new series from Marvel to follow the conclusion of AvX.  Of the various announcements about the relaunch the company is calling, sort of insipidly, MARVEL NOW!, this is by far the most exciting. Cassaday, who has been absent from regular comics interior work since he and Warren Ellis finished up Planetary nearly three years ago, is one the Modern Age's great talents, an artist who has managed to meld almost photorealistic figures with an energy and movement usually lacking in a style that is mostly attended by an unfortunate stiffness. It'll be good to see his work on a monthly, or at least semi-monthly, or anyway regular, basis again.
