5th May Marvel Comic Releases

There’s a fair amount of new releases today!

Single Issues:

Heroes Reborn by Jason Aaron

A WORLD WITHOUT AVENGERS!   
Welcome to a world where Tony Stark never built an Iron Man armour. Where Thor is a hard-drinking atheist who despises hammers. Where Wakanda is dismissed as a myth. And where Captain America was never found in the ice because there were no Avengers to find him. Instead this world has always been protected by Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, the Squadron Supreme of America. And now the Squadron faces an attack from some of their fiercest enemies, like Dr. Juggernaut, the Black Skull, the Silver Witch and Thanos with his Infinity Rings. But why is the Daywalker Blade the one man alive who seems to remember that the entire world has somehow been…reborn?

This is essentially the Marvel comic universe, just slight… off, and it’s been building up for a while now, so it’s definitely not for newbies! I’ll have a full guide up once there’s been a few more releases in this series!

Thanos Quest: Marvel Tales by Jim Starlin

Thanos undertakes his most epic quest as we celebrate the legacy of the House of Ideas with MARVEL TALES! This anthology series shines a spotlight on fan-favourite characters, features timeless stories, and highlights some of Marvel’s most impressive talent from the past eight decades. In THANOS QUEST (1990) #1-2, a star-spanning tale from the stellar team of Jim Starlin and Ron Lim, the Mad Titan returns – scouring the cosmos and battling the Elders of the Universe for the six all-powerful Infinity Gems! See how Thanos gains mastery of Mind, Power, Reality, Soul, Space, and Time…setting the stage for the tyrant to devastate the Marvel Universe with the Infinity Gauntlet! If you’re a fan of cosmic action, then this evergreen classic is a must-have!

The next in the Marvel Tales series! Like the synopsis says, this is shining a spotlight on various characters from the Marvel universe! To read this, I’ll definitely say you need to read at least of a few Jim Starlin Thanos comics first, just to get context.

Bind Ups:

Dead Man Logan Complete Collection by Ed Brisson

Old Man Logan is dying. His healing factor is depleted, and his search for a cure has led to nothing but dead ends. Can Logan take his last breath in peace? Not if Mysterio has anything to say about it! The villain means to set in motion the massacre of the X-Men that kicked off Old Man Logan’s apocalyptic future timeline. But is someone pulling Mysterio’s strings? The master of illusion’s new benefactors will surprise you! Then, Logan returns home to find that the future world he left behind unraveled even further during the time he spent in the Marvel Universe. Now the end draws near, but Logan still has unfinished business to take care of! Prepare for one of the most savage rivalries in comics to be concluded in a bloody fashion!

This is definitely not one for new fans! It’s referencing old Logan comics, and would probably make very little sense out of context.

Venom by Michelinie and McFarlane: Gallery Edition


The deadliest foe of Spider-Man! During their acclaimed run on AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, writer David Michelinie and artist Todd McFarlane introduced an adversary for the ages: the larger-than-life Venom! Peter Parker’s spurned symbiote costume sought out Eddie Brock, whose thirst for vengeance matched its own. Together, they emerged from the shadows to terrorise Mary Jane before turning their attention to their real target: Spider-Man! With all of Peter Parker’s powers but much stronger and more vicious, Venom may be the one to shred the wall-crawler’s web permanently, unless Spidey can find some weakness – and fast! But what will happen when Venom targets the Black Cat…and Aunt May?!

A collection from 1963, introducing Venom! If you want to know more about Venom, this the perfect place to start!

All New Wolverine by Tom Taylor Omnibus

ALL-NEW WOLVERINE BY TOM TAYLOR OMNIBUS

You know her as X-23, and she’s Laura to her few friends. But when her mentor Logan falls, she will honour his legacy and become the all-new Wolverine! Now, thrill to superstar writer Tom Taylor’s complete adventures of Laura Kinney, the best there is at what she does! Laura was created to be a weapon, but she’s finally escaped that dark past. However, uncovering a devastating secret from her origins will change her life! She’s about to take on a protégée of her own – but who is the girl called Gabby, and what’s her connection to Laura? As Wolverine sets down roots, she makes new friends including Doctor Strange, the Guardians of the Galaxy…and Deadpool? But who are the Orphans of X, and why have they marked her for death? 

One of my all time favourite comic runs! You really should have previous comic knowledge of Wolverine and X23’s origins, but I read this at the beginning of my comic journey and got through it just fine!

Ms Marvel: Outlawed by Saladin Ahmed

There’s a new hero in Jersey City! Introducing Fadi Fadlalah, A.K.A. Amulet! What secrets is this gentle giant hiding? Is he friend or foe? And is this town big enough for both him and Ms. Marvel?! Then, while recovering from a traumatic ordeal, Kamala finds herself an unwilling martyr for a movement she hates – and Ms. Marvel ends up outlawed! But if she wants to reclaim her narrative, she’ll have to wake up first! The anti-teen-hero task force, C.R.A.D.L.E., is scouring Jersey City to apprehend its young protector – and that isn’t the only problem on Kamala’s plate. Several of her family members support the new law – and if they discover her secret identity, it’s game over for Ms. Marvel! Everything will come to a head at the homecoming dance! 

The third in the Ms Marvel run by Saladin Ahmed, the first two are: Destined and Stormranger.

King Deadpool volume 2 by Kelly Thompson

It’s a love story, Deadpool – just say yes! Elsa Bloodstone the monster hunter is dying, and the only one who can save her is…Wade Wilson! What has gone wrong with Elsa’s mystical, magical Bloodstone gem? What can Deadpool possibly do about it? And what is the actual truth of the Bloodstone curse? Scandal, betrayal and a dimension full of hideous goo all await – it’s gonna get messy! Then, the King of the Monsters takes on the King of the Dragons! An evil, ancient cult wants to kill Deadpool. An evil, ancient space god wants to kill Deadpool. Why does everyone want to kill Deadpool?!?

The first one in this series is simply called King Deadpool.

And that’s everything coming out today! What’s on pull list? I’m going to be picking Ms Marvel volume 3, and King Deadpool!
