Stock giant Corbis has made a deal with Marvel Enterprises to license Marvel's digital content on a global basis. According to Corbis, "Under the new multiyear license agreement, Corbis represents the rights to thousands of images featuring Marvel's expansive library of more than 5,000 characters and makes them available for use in print and broadcast media. The arrangement provides creatives with simple access to Marvel character art and the rights clearance services necessary to use them in editorial and commercial advertising projects."

for more. In the PDF is some Marvel superhero art (all copyright Marvel Enterprises), just 'cause these folks look so cute, led by the pre-Jennifer Garner Elektra, who's not in her usual red getup, but maybe these are her threads on Casual Fridays. On another Corbis note, Chicago's Segura Inc. (www.segura-inc.com
) is out with "Crop 5" of its award-winning "Crop" series of large-format catalogs for Corbis Stock Photography. The cover and some images from the volume are also seen in this showcase.
