Why this caught my eye:

I just love the accessibility and pricing of these reprints Marvel has been putting out, plus those Cho covers are pretty great.

 

GHOST RIDER #1

JOHNNY BLAZE!! Johnny Blaze has the perfect life: a wife and two kids, a job at an auto repair shop and a small-town community that supports him... But Johnny isn't doing well. He has nightmares of monsters when he sleeps. And he sees bloody visions when he's awake. This life is beginning to feel like a prison. And there's a spirit in him that's begging to break out!


Benjamin Percy (WOLVERINE, X-FORCE) and Cory Smith (CONAN THE BARBARIAN, CAPTAIN MARVEL) are going back to basics with the Spirit of Vengeance in this extra-sized first issue!

Rated T+

Why this caught my eye:

Ghost Rider runs are inconsistent at best, and I'm generally less interested in Johnny Blaze over the other riders. But I like Smith's art and it's always worth checking to see what different writers can bring to the table.

 

SAVAGE SPIDER-MAN #1

(W) Joe Kelly (A) Gerardo Sandoval (CA) Nick Bradshaw


SPIDER-MAN LIKE YOU'VE NEVER SEEN HIM BEFORE!

Peter Parker finds himself at the middle of the biggest, most wide-ranging adventure he's ever had and out of the gate it has turned him into a SAVAGE BEAST! Forget everything you know about Spider-Man. All rules and regulations are out the door and Peter Parker may never be the same!

Why this caught my eye:

I haven't read any of this material in a loooooong time and I'm a little afraid to revisit it, but this era of Spidey and Mark Bagely artwork was a formative part of my childhood comic identity and I feel like I owe it to....someone?.....to revisit it.....for some reason? I dunno, but I do appreciate the heftiness of this collection and Marvel does do good work with the Epic volumes.

 

IRON FIST #1

(W) Alyssa Wong (A) Yg, Michael (CA) Jim Cheung


WHO IS THE NEW IRON FIST?!


• After giving up his power to save the world, DANNY RAND believes he's seen the last of the IRON FIST...

• Who is this NEW IRON FIST? And does his power really come from the DRAGON OF K'UN-LUN... Or from something far more sinister?

Rated T+

Why this caught my eye:


About friggin' time.
