Upcoming Comics Spotlight: Marvel

This ones a bit chunkier as I wanted to get a bunch of these Nov/Dec releases listed sooner rather than later!

 

DOCTOR STRANGE FALL SUNRISE #1

(W) Tradd Moore (A/CA) Tradd Moore


FROM THE MIND OF TRADD MOORE!


Doctor Strange awakens alone in a distant world not his own. Lost of purpose and surrounded by danger, the wandering sorcerer must explore this land of blades and mystery to unravel arcane secrets and escape the deadly horrors that lie in wait! From the fantastical mind of creator Tradd Moore (SILVER SURFER: BLACK) comes a Strange story like you've never seen!

SEP220911


Why this caught my eye:

I loves me some Tradd Moore craziness and this feels like the perfect title for him to let loose. Silver Surfer: Black was a ton of fun and looked great in the oversized Treasury format so I'm looking forward to this getting the same treatment eventually.

 

BLADE VAMPIRE NATION #1

(W) Mark Russell (A) Dave Wachter, Mico Suayan (CA) Valerio Giangiordano


• A deep dive into Dracula's new kingdom as established in AVENGERS. Starring BLADE, the sheriff of Vampire Nation!


• An assassination threatens to unravel the fledgling country and spread chaos throughout the world. But is getting rid of a nation full of bloodsuckers really all that bad of an idea? Blade himself isn't too sure...

SEP220976


Why this caught my eye:

Interested in seeing Russell have fun, plus I'm always a fan of Wachter doing horror material.

 

AVENGERS ASSEMBLE ALPHA #1

(W) Jason Aaron (A/CA) Bryan Hitch


UNITING THE AVENGERS, AVENGERS FOREVER AND AVENGERS OF 1,000,000 BC IN AN EPIC SAGA THAT FORMS THE CAPSTONE TO JASON AARON'S ERA ON AVENGERS!


From throughout time and the far corners of the Multiverse, the Mightiest Heroes of All the Earths are assembling as never before for a battle beyond all imaging. A war that will take us from the prehistoric beginnings of an Earth under assault by the greatest villains who've ever lived to the watchtower that stands at the dark heart of the all and the always, where an army of unprecedented evil now rises. The biggest Avengers saga in Marvel history begins now.

SEP220849


Why this caught my eye:

I'm woefully behind on Aaron's Avengers, but he knows how to go big and have fun and this sounds like an important stepping on point for the event.

 

FANTASTIC FOUR #1

(W) Ryan North (A) Iban Coello (CA) Alex Ross


"WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE FANTASTIC FOUR?" It's the start of a new era for the Fantastic Four...and they're already in a ton of trouble. Something has gone terribly wrong in New York, and the Thing and Alicia are traveling across America to escape it! But when they stop in a small town for the night and wake up the morning before they arrived, they find themselves caught in a time loop that's been going on since before they were born...


That's been going on since before they were born...


That's been going on since before they were born...

SEP220874


Why this caught my eye:

I'm late and this should be out right now actually, but wanted to give it a spotlight as I love Ryan North and I'm glad he's getting a shot at the title.

 

ADAM WARLOCK OMNIBUS HC STARLIN CVR

(W) Stan Lee, Various (A) Jack Kirby, Various (CA) Jim Starlin


Created by the utopian scientists of the Enclave and hatched from the imaginations of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, there came a being known only as...Him! And when this perfect being encountered the High Evolutionary, he gained a purpose, a Soul Gem and a name: Adam Warlock! His adventures will rock your world - and Counter-Earth too! Now, Warlock's complete original 1970s saga is collected in one volume. Featuring the first life (and death) of Adam Warlock, the debut of the Infinity Gems, the Magus saga, the all-time classic war against Thanos, the debut of Her, the resurrection of Adam Warlock and a massive treasure trove of bonus material!


Collecting FANTASTIC FOUR (1961) #66-67, THOR (1966) #165-166, MARVEL PREMIERE #1-2, WARLOCK (1972) #1-15, INCREDIBLE HULK (1968) #176-178 and ANNUAL #6, STRANGE TALES (1951) #178-181, MARVEL TEAM-UP (1972) #55, AVENGERS ANNUAL #7 and MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE (1972) #61-63 and ANNUAL #2.

SEP221111


Why this caught my eye:

That's just a nice chunk of great stuff, and while I don't have space for any more giants monsters like this it's still super tempting.

 

MURDERWORLD AVENGERS #1

(W) Jim Zub (A) Jethro Morales (CA) Paco Medina


READY. SET. DIE!


• Hundreds are killed every year in an elaborate secret tournament run by a sadistic man with nearly limitless resources at his fingertips.


• It's not an urban legend. It's not a myth - MURDERWORLD is real! It's online, and the gruesome truth has been hidden from everyone except its victims - until NOW.


• Meet Paul Pastor, the extraordinary young documentarian who's going to expose it all... with some super-powered help. The Black Widow has a personal grudge to settle with Murderworld mastermind Arcade - but can she stop this game before it kills again?


MURDERWORLD is the wildly violent ride you've been waiting for. Gut-wrenching twists, unbelievable deaths, the Avengers bloodier than you've ever seen them before - the tormented minds of Jim Zub (Conan the Barbarbian, AVENGERS: NO SURRENDER), Ray Fawkes (One Soul, Constantine) and Jethro Morales kick off the must-have miniseries of the year!

SEP220934


Why this caught my eye:

I mean, it's basically Avenger: Squid Game. But then Murderworld was always a pre-Squid Game Squid Game, so I guess that's ok.

 

THANOS DEATH NOTES #1

(W) Christopher Cantwell, J. Michael Straczynski (A) Ron Lim, Andrea DiVito (CA) Andrea Sorrentino


• Spinning out of Donny Cates & Nic Klein's THOR comes an all-new Thanos one-shot, with Ron Lim's return to the Mad Titan!


• Thanos is missing, presumed dead. But Thor has seen a vision of his return. And it is enough to make even a God fear. To prepare himself, to prepare the universe, Thor desperately searches for answers in Thanos' past... and finds a glimpse of the Marvel Universe's dark future.

SEP220964




Why this caught my eye:

I'm a sucker for a Thanos story with both Lim and DiVito (Annihilation) on art duties. It's a bit interesting that Straczynski is attached with no real fanfare though.

 

CAPTAIN AMERICA GHOST ARMY OGN

(W) Alan Gratz (A) Brent Schoonover


In this thrilling historical adventure, 18 year-old Steve Rogers (AKA Captain America) and his young sidekick, Bucky Barnes are fighting in WWII when they encounter a threat like none they've ever seen - a Ghost Army. The dead of this war and wars past are coming back to life, impervious to bullets, flames, or anything else the Allies can throw at them. The armies rise from the ground in the night and seem to disappear without a trace. How can Cap and Buck fight something that's already dead? And just what does the mysterious Baron Mordo, sitting in his castle atop nearby Wundagore Mountain have to do with this?

OCT221687


Why this caught my eye:

I'm just interested to see these Graphix/Scholastic projects rolling out consistently now, glad to see them keeping the momentum going.

 

PLANET HULK WORLDBREAKER #1

(W) Greg Pak (A) Manuel Garcia (CA) Carlo Pagulayan


MILLENNIUM!


• A thousand years from now on the planet Sakaar, a young woman with green skin searches for the legendary Green Scar to help save her brother from a group of apocalyptic cultists.


• But which Hulk will she find?


• And after all these years, is he truly the Sakaarson, who will save us all - or the Worldbreaker, who will destroy us?


• A shocking expansion and culmination of the mythos of Sakaar and the heart of the Hulks from PLANET HULK scribe Greg Pak and visionary DEVIL'S REIGN artist Manuel Garcia.

SEP220923


Why this caught my eye:

Planet Hulk is still generally one of the best loved Hulk events, so this should be an interesting return with Pak coming back at the helm.

 

That's it for this batch, we'll hit up some DC comics on the next round!
