Upcoming Comics Spotlight: Marvel

This batch of upcoming Marvel titles includes some B&W&R Moon Knight anthology action, a buttload of new and classic Captain America material, some more Si Spurrier mutant shenanigans, and another resurrection of the 90's X-Men cartoon series but with some Krakoan infusion this time around.

A BLOOD MOON RISES - AND ITS CONTENTS ARE BLACK, WHITE & RED!


A bevy of comicdom's finest creators put their mark upon the Fist of Khonshu in stories depicted in stark black, white and blood-red!

Why this caught my eye:

I am a sucker for B&W projects plus the Hickman/Bachalo chapter sounds like it could be a lot of fun.

 

MIGHTY MMW CAPT AMERICA GN TP VOL 01

(W) Stan Lee (A) Jack Kirby, Various (CA) Michael Cho


The stories that built the Marvel Universe, from the brilliant minds of legendary creators - now available in an accessible new format the whole family can enjoy!

FEB221081 (Kirby)

Why this caught my eye:

You should know the drill by now for every time I share one of these. Well priced reprints + aimed at all-ages + nice cover choices = it's about time.

 

CAPTAIN AMERICA #0

(W) Tochi Onyebuchi, Collin Kelly, Jackson Lanzing (A) Mattia De Iulis (CA) Alex Ross


When Arnim Zola launches a catastrophic attack on New York City, he meets his match - in Sam Wilson and Steve Rogers! In the explosive battle that follows, two Captain Americas prove better than one, and Sam and Steve decide they might just keep a good thing going...

Tochi Onyebuchi (BLACK PANTHER LEGENDS), Jackson Lanzing & Collin Kelly (KANG THE CONQUEROR) and Mattia De Iulis (THE MIGHTY VALKYRIES, INVISIBLE WOMAN) kick off an incredible new CAPTAIN AMERICA saga, and you won't want to miss whatever comes next!


FEB220807 (Alex Ross Steve Cover)

FEB220808 (Alex Ross Sam Cover)

FEB220809 (Brooks Wraparound)


Why this caught my eye:

Figure it's always worth checking out what the next creative team may in store for Cap. And while I'm usually tired of too many variant covers, I do appreciate the Steve/Sam spotlights and I do like me some Brooks artwork as well.

 

LEGION OF X #1

(W) Si Spurrier (A) Jan Bazaldua (CA) Dike Ruan


SI SPURRIER AND JAN BAZALDUA BRING PEACE, LOVE AND JUSTICE TO KRAKOA!


Krakoa has its laws - but does it have justice? To remain a mutant sanctuary, Krakoa must safeguard itself against those who would damage its peace or traumatize its people. The lost must be found, and the wicked must face redemption - or retribution.


It's up to the ever-soulful swashbuckler NIGHTCRAWLER to keep the spark alive and LEGION to host his unique team in the psychedelic mindspace called THE ALTAR. With PIXIE on point, JUGGERNAUT as a one-man riot squad and a host of X-favorites on the beat, the LEGION OF X will do anything to protect mutants' right to pursue happiness and hope.


Kicking off with a hunt for a missing Arakkii god and a skinjacker possessing innocent mutants, read this issue and come meet WEAPONLESS ZSEN, ORA SERRATA...and a villain worth praying for. The DESTINY OF X bares it heart and soul right here!

FEB220860


Why this caught my eye:

I'm horribly behind in all thing X-Men, but I do appreciate some Spurrier action and it's always worth highlighting his new projects.

 

X-MEN 92 HOUSE OF XCII #1

(W) Steve Foxe (A) Salva Espin (CA) David Baldeon


THE '90s ARE BACK - AGAIN! Everyone's favorite '90s incarnations of the X-Men have returned...but this time, everything is even all-newer and all-more different! Mutantkind is taking a huge leap forward by founding their own nation on the island of Krakoa, guided by Professor X, Magneto, and a mysterious long-lived woman who knows more than she should. That's right - the '90s X-Men are tackling the Krakoan Age thirty years early... and it's NOT going to go the way you expect!

FEB220878


Why this caught my eye:

As far as WHAT IFs that aren't called WHAT IFs but are definitely WHAT IFs go, this is a pretty fun mashup of timelines and concepts. I'm also a sucker for the animated iteration of Apocalypse so I'm also just looking forward to him popping up.

 

That's it for this batch! We'll stay with Marvel for the next round and just do a Spider-Man focus!
