Oeming's "Ares"

Been hearing about this a while but not sure if i've shared...

Mike Oeming is working on an uber-cool project (due in Jan) - "Ares". Ares is based on the Greek God of War (of the same name), and hopes to "reunite Greek Mythology w/ the Marvel Universe". In the end it appears we'll get a Marvel Knights limited series (mini) w/ an "adult" rating. Ares will be a "father/son" tale set in motion partly by the fall of Asgard (which has gotten too little spinoff/effect press IMO).

Here's to hoping Oeming can recapture some of the magic touch he used with Norse Mytholodgy (Hammer of the Gods), Thor: Blood Oath, and most of all Stormbreaker: The Saga of Beta Ray Bill (all 3 of which i've enjoyed) and use it as aptly w/ Greek Mythology in Ares.

Preview pages, interviews and more @ Newsarama.

I'm recently back reading after a 15 year comics hiatus.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
