I’ve recently been rewatching the Underworld movies, and I suddenly discovered a very interesting fact about a cast member – Kevin Grevioux, aka the werewolf Raze in Underworld and Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans, is also a comic book author!
Not only that, but he’s a Marvel Comic author, the creator of two comic publishing imprints (Astounding Studios and Darkstorm Comic Studios), the creator of the premise of Underworld, and the creator of I, Frankenstein (comic AND film!). After finding this all out, I had to do a profile on him, so let’s get going!
Spider-Man Family (2007) #5
Why buy a 22-page book when you can get 104!? We’re coming at you with an all-new untold tale featuring Spidey and that magical master, Dr. Strange! The good Doc ain’t feeling so well, so here’s hoping ol’ Web Head can cure what ails him in time to fight off EVERY mystical demon in the universe! PLUS, a backup story featuring Man-Wolf, PLUS classic archive material, PLUS Spider-Man J! If we tried to cram any more story into this thing, we’d be arrested!
A giant single issue, featuring an adventure between Spider-Man and Doctor Strange!
Young Avengers Presents (2008) issue 5
Young Cassie Lang has an encounter with Kang’s ubiquitous enforcer the GROWING MAN! However, her ordeal ends in tragedy as someone close to her is gravely injured in the process. And the effect on Cassie causes some unexpected problems from which she might never recover. Can the Young Avengers help Stature before an even greater tragedy befalls her?
Definitely a good thing to check out before Ant Man And The Wasp: Quantumania releases, as this features Cassie AND Kang, though I’d wait just a little while until my character profiles go up, so you’ve got a bit of knowledge on these characters first.
Amazing Spider-Man (1999) issue 700.5
Peter Parker and Johnny Storm must stop an apocalyptic future by fighting…the Fantastic Four?! By Brian Reed (MS. MARVEL) and Sean Chen (AVENGERS)! Then, a young child risks his life to save Spider-Man’s in the emotional WHAT WOULD SPIDER-MAN DO? By Kevin Grievioux (NEW WARRIORS) and Lee Weeks (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN)!
Kevin writes the second story in this Spider-Man issue!
Fear Itself: The Home Front (2010) issue 4
FEAR ITSELF TIE-IN! Speedball desperately races across the world, trying to unite pockets of resistance against the Serpent…but as the Serpent’s forces strike back, and innocent lives are lost, is he only bringing about his own greatest fear? PLUS: Jimmy Woo’s world unravels as he pieces together a puzzle he didn’t even know he was part of! Is ultimate knowledge worth the price of his sanity? And can the Blue Marvel fight what the Serpent has wrought in the trenches?
Co-written with a bunch of authors like Peter Milligan and Christos Gage, but does also feature Kevin’s Blue Marvel character, who I talk about later on in this post! This also ties into Fear Itself, so you should read that as you read this.
What If? Secret Invasion (2009) issue 1
Marvel once again poses the question, What If…? What if the Skrulls WON Secret Invasion?
Again, co-written with several authors like Michael Gallagher, but a fun exploration into what-if scenarios surrounding Secret Invasion – which is being adapted this year into a Disney Plus show!
What If? Civil War (2007) issue 1
When a stranger appears in front of Iron Man, visiting Captain America’s symbolic grave at Arlington, he is told of two diverse ways CIVIL WAR could’ve concluded. The first: What If CAPTAIN AMERICA led all the heroes against the Registration Act? The second: What if IRON MAN lost the Civil War?
The exact same idea as above, just with Civil War instead. This time this issue was co-written with Christos Gage and Ed Brubaker.
New Warriors (2007)
Someone is gift-wrapping super-villains for the police. Someone is defacing Super Human Registration posters. Someone is raising eyebrows all around town – from City Hall to Tony Stark’s war chamber. And the only clue to their identity? Two spray-painted letters: N.W. Who are these mysterious young upstarts that have dared to fight the powers-that-be? And what do they want from a de-powered mutant named Sofia? Are the New Warriors truly back from the dead? Or has something new risen from the ashes of Stamford?
Taking place after Civil War and House Of M, this is following a few depowered mutants as they keep on fighting the good fight!
Adam: The Legend Of The Blue Marvel (2009)
An unstoppable super-villain attacks New York City – and the Mighty Avengers fall before him! Where did Anti-Man come from? And who can stop his overwhelming rampage?
Adam was a character Grevioux created in his teens, and made his debut in Marvel Comics in 2009. He’s been seriously under-used since then, but there’s always hope for a resurgence!
And that’s my spotlight on Kevin Grevioux! If there are any other authors you’re curious about, let me know in the comments!
