Eric Canete: easy, tiger.

Eric Canete doing increasingly frequent drawing gigs for Marvel Universe comics leaves me with a problem: I love Canete's work, don't give a toss about Marvel's all-consuming need to tie all their comics together, all the time. Still, some people have managed to make decent individualistic work in this rigid framework (I'm looking at you, Casey & Fox), and this cover is magnificent, in a Asaf and Tomer Hanuka kind of vein.

Looks like he character of Luke Cage will be heading over to THUNDERBOLTS from NEW AVENGERS soon. Joining him there will be 2000AD stalwart Kev Walker, so that's more damned Marvel comics I'll end up buying.
