Sam Humphries Inks Exclusive Deal With Marvel

Legendary Star Lord 1 CoverMarvel Entertainment has announced their exclusive agreement with The Legendary Star-Lord writer, Sam Humphries.

One of Wizard’s “Five Writers to Watch in 2011”, Humphries’ work on independent and creator-owned comics such as Our Love is Real initially caught Marvel’s attention for his unique style, wit, and creativity. Humphries creator-owned work eventually led to his first work at Marvel on the limited series John Carter: The Gods of Mars and later Ultimate Comics: Ultimates.

Reflecting on how he got started at Marvel, Humphries said “”In 2011, I self-published a comic called Our Love Is Real which, because of its unconventional subject matter, quickly became infamous. Then-Senior Editor Stephen Wacker brought it to the attention of Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso, who gave me a call pretty much out of the blue. He said, ‘Are you ready to get into the mix at Marvel?’ I said, ‘Before you sign me up, before we get involved — I just want to make sure — you have read Our Love Is Real and you know what it is about, right?!’ I’m thankful they’ve trusted me with their books and characters ever since.”

July 2014 sees Humphries lend his pen to the highly anticipated The Legendary Star-Lord #1, a new ongoing series starring the brazen outlaw and leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy.

“When I first read Sam Humphries’ legendarily notorious independent one-shot Our Love Is Real, I knew I was looking at a bold new voice,” says Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso.  “And I fully expect that bold new voice to be on full display in the solo ongoing of the cosmos’ most irreverent and unlikely super-hero, ‘The Legendary Star-Lord’.”

Once again, Marvel is excited to welcome Sam Humphries’ unique blend of action and humor exclusively to The Legendary Star-Lord, the Marvel Universe and future Marvel projects.
