A new week, a load of new releases!
FLASH THOMPSON IS BACK!
After the shocking revelations of EXTREME CARNAGE: SCREAM, Carnage sets its sights on the PHAGE symbiote. Carnage isn’t the only familiar face on the board though! After a rendezvous with his student, Andi Benton, FLASH THOMPSON is back and ready for a fight!
Definitely check out Extreme Carnage: Scream and Flash Thompson’s time as a symbiote before checking this out!
I AM MOON KNIGHT!
The mysterious Mr. Knight has opened his Midnight Mission, his people petitioning for protection from the weird and horrible. The Moon Knight stalks the rooftops and alleys marked with his crescent moon tag, bringing violence to any who would harm his people. Marc Spector, in whichever guise he dons, is back on the streets, a renegade priest of an unworthy god. But while Khonshu languishes in a prison that Moon Knight put him in, Moon Knight must still observe his duty: protecting those who travel at night.
Let it be known – Moon Knight will keep the faith.
This is not for new fans of Moon Knight, so I’d steer clear for now. Also, if you do want information on Moon Knight, then watch this space – I’ll be putting out a load of guides/recommendations when his TV show debuts on Disney+.
THOR VS. THOR!
Thor and the other leaders of the Ten Realms (and, uh, Hawkeye?) have gathered for a World Tree celebration! But the festivities come to an abrupt halt when a mysterious guest – and his otherworldly powers – crashes the party. And his “plus-one” is a dark, twisted version of Thor who is determined to become the iron-fisted ruler of all the realms!
ALSO IN THIS ISSUE: Part 5 (of 8) of “Infinite Fury”
Part of the new Infinity Destiny storyline, so make sure you’re caught up on Captain America and Iron Man’s issues before going into this.
A vain man driven by greed and hubris, Dr. Stephen Strange was a world-renowned surgeon until the night a car accident crippled his hands. Broken and destitute, he journeyed to Tibet to seek a cure from a legendary healer. There he found not a man of medicine, but the venerable Ancient One – and the path to the mystic arts! From Doctor Strange’s eerie Greenwich Village home, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko created new dimensions and otherworldly terrors unlike anything seen before. These classic first stories remain as influential today as they were to 1960s counterculture. In this premiere volume, experience the debut of iconic characters Baron Mordo, Eternity, Dormammu and the Mindless Ones – as well as Strange’s allies Wong and Clea!
The start of Doctor Strange’s journey, featuring his first ever appearances in Marvel Comics!
An untold tale of the young Sub-Mariner – and the dark, chilling birth of one of Atlantis’ greatest villains! The players: Namor, Lady Dorma of Atlantis, the outsider Attuma – all still in their teen years – and the Swift Riders, the Atlantean Empire’s greatest heroes. It begins with alliances and possibilities – but what lies ahead is tragedy, betrayal and deadly magics unleashed! As the three youths join the Swift Riders on a vital mission, the ensuing catastrophe brings to life the most menacing threat Atlantis has ever faced! Will the Black Tide cut a swath of devastation and death across the ocean floor, laying waste to all that stands before them? It’s a deep dive into Marvel history – where the secrets of the King in Black are buried!
Another part to the King In Black event – I have part one of my guide to the event up now, and will be continuing it over the next week.
The Falcon has bid Cap adieu, and now the Star-Spangled Avenger must go it alone against the hate group called the National Force! But what is Sharon Carter doing among their ranks, and who’s really pulling the strings of this movement? Captain America will have to go through the Grand Director to get the shocking answers! It’s all-out action with Daredevil guest-starring as the story races to its thrilling climax! Then, Cap finds himself in the middle of gang wars that put his methods at odds with the brutal Punisher! And when the Sentinel of Liberty meets the grotesque monster called Adonis, well, it ain’t gonna be pretty! Plus: A Falcon solo tale – and the return of “Just a Guy Named Joe!” from AMAZING SPIDER-MAN!
The previous volumes are simply numbered 1-12, so should be reasonably easy to find.
The grand unveiling of the Union! A team of super heroes gathered from across the United Kingdom – including Union Jack, Snakes, Kelpie, Choir and their fearless leader, Britannia! But when the alien god Knull and his symbiote dragons attack Earth, the fledgling team finds itself immediately pushed to its limits! The heroes of the Union must battle for their lives (and one another) as the King in Black’s invasion reaches its crescendo! And who are Bulldog and Doc Croc? One will join them, but the other may destroy them! Thrust onto the global stage just as a devastating blow to the team rocks it to its very core, will the members of the Union prove themselves – or crumble under the pressure as the entire world watches?
Another King In Black event tie in!
And that’s everything released this new comic book day! What’s on your pull list? For me, it has to be Doctor Strange’s Epic Collection!
