marvel april 2014

Marvel has some big plans for the reboot of the Marvel Universe as well as new titles in the Marvel proper universe, and has released previews for Elektra #1, Ultimate FF #1, and a look at the Spider-Verse featuring every Spider-Man ever! Check out the previews here below.

The Future Foundation is back rising from the Cataclysm of the Ultimate universe with a new team made up of Tony Stark, Sam Wilson, Sue Storm, and Machine Man. In the first arc, Doctor Doom joins the team as well. Could this be the return of the brain trust that Reed Richards hinted at in the first issue of Survive? Ultimate FF #1, the start of a new series from writer Joshua Hale Fialkov and artist Mario Guevara, hits shelves on April 16, 2014.

GoD List Banner

Each and every week “Let’s Go” Henchman21 AND “Red Wings” MK2Fac3 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. Naturally, they looks forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and they’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of January 9, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Well, it’s been a nice couple weeks’ vacation with the holidays and all but it’s back to business. And business is good. Except for the fact that there aren’t really all that many books I feel like talking about this week. Sure there’s the last issue of Jeff Lemire’s Sweet Tooth, a new issue of The Legend of Luther Strode, and plenty more. But this week is dominated by two big titles, which we will get to shortly. So let’s start this new year off with this week’s GoD List!

Cover Price: $7.99

This is IT, True Believer! The Amazing Spider-Man #700 is the LAST issue of Marvel Comics’ flagship title starring their most popular character. Now, I don’t want to incur the Twitter wrath of writer Dan Slott, so you won’t find any spoilers here, BUT you’ll get the nuts and bolts of if this issue is worth it or not.

Slott has been writing Spider-Man a loooooong time. And, like he himself stated, this story began way back with his earliest work on the title, about 100 issues ago. First, let me say, the lead up to this story has been pretty entertaining. Not mind-blowing, but very entertaining. This issue, however, does have some VERY mind-blowing moments. It’s a classic Spider-Man story that will have fans of the series recalling all of their favorite issues, as so many of them have been told at this king of break-neck, beat the clock manner.

GoD List Banner

Each and every week “Firework Fred” MK2Fac3 and “Firecracker Frank” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of July 4, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Um, yeah, sorry about the delay, folks! We were just sitting over here drinking non-alcoholic beverages in celebration of freedom and such, so we got a little too distracted by the holiday to get this up in time. You forgive us, right? Sure you do. I mean, I’m sure that you might have gotten distracted by all the booms and crackering of fireworks too and missed picking up new comics, right? That’s what I thought. Well, there’s a decent amount of stuff that came out this week, but a lot of it is more new issues than new comics, you know what I mean? Not a lot of fresh pickings. Nonetheless, you should read on because there are new comics to love and behold. Which ones? Like I said, you’ll need to read on for The GoD List.

New ‘Venom’ On-Going Series Coming In March

VenomEveryone’s favorite symbiote is getting a new series thanks to writer Rick Remender and artist Tony Moore.

That’s right, Venom is getting another ongoing series this March from Marvel Comics so you better get ready. The series will feature the creative team of Remender and Moore, the pair having previously teamed up on Fear Agent and Franken-Castle, and it’s a pairing that has created some great comics together, so I’m more excited to see that than I am the particular character of the book.

According to Marvel, the series will see the alien entity that is one of Spider-Man’s deadliest enemies joining with a new host that is familiar to fans who is then forced to work with the government. The new series was masterminded by Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott and editor Steve Wacker, and was then handed off to Remender to flesh out. Slott will set up the series in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man 654.1 in February (part of Marvel’s Point One series), and will continue in Venom #1.

SDCC 2010: Spider-Man Hits the Big Time in November

Week of Geek: San Diego Comic Con International 2010

Amazing Spider-Man Big TimeThere are changes coming to the world of the Amazing Spider-Man in November when the series cuts back from its current schedule of three issues a month and goes to just two issues a month. Each issue will feature 30 issues of the main story and then will have a 9-page back-up story. Another change coming to the series will see the end of the rotating cast of writers, as Dan Slott becomes the sole writer for the series, although others will be writing some of the back-up stories. One further change will see a rotating team of artists handling each story arc. The three rotating artists on the book will be Stafano Caselli (recently on Secret Warriors), Humberto Ramos, and Marcos Martin. Ramos will be drawing the first arc, starting with issue #648. Caselli will draw the next arc, with Martin drawing the third. The price for each issue will be $3.99.

The Brand New Day experiment has worked well for Marvel, making Spider-Man not only one of its best-selling titles, where it should be, but also making it one of its most consistently excellent titles. It will be interesting to see how the book differs with just one writer as opposed to the large group of writers. Marvel has decided to give the book a new subtitle, much as they did with the Brand New Day title. Now they’re subtitling it “Big Time.”
