A small break from my Eternals posts to give you this week’s new comic book releases!
EARTH’S WEAKEST HEROES!
• With Doctor Strange gone, the Avengers are the only ones who
can stop a rampaging Juggernaut-like monster from wrecking all
• But what does this mystical creature want?
• And how does the magic-skeptical Iron Man hold the answer?
A tie-in to the Death Of Doctor Strange storyline, so make sure you’ve read that first!
Strange Academy is closed until the events surrounding Dr. Strange’s death are resolved, so the students go back to their parents!
• Iric and Alvi’s mom happens to be the Enchantress, so you know this isn’t going to go smoothly. We’re going to learn that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and more than just one realm is in trouble.
• All this and more!
Another tie-in to the Doctor Strange storyline, as well as a continuation of the Strange Academy series. Make sure you’ve read the first few issues of Death Of Doctor Strange and Strange Academy First Class and Bright Side first!
Rules of engagement! The Human Torch’s love life is changed forever when he must choose between his soulmate Sky and his ex-wife Lyja – but wait, is Crystal back in town? Speaking of romance, an old enemy is about to take a momentous step. You are cordially commanded to Latveria for the royal wedding – of Doctor Doom! But why is Mister Fantastic acting as best man? And how will the groom’s actions profoundly change one member of Marvel’s First Family? Plus: Reed and Ben explore a bizarre new realm – and Kang’s entire bloodline is out to destroy every era of the Fantastic Four! How can Reed, Sue, Ben and Johnny hope to survive simultaneous attacks across their lifetimes by Rama-Tut, the Scarlet Centurion, Kang the Conqueror and the sinister Scion?!
The previous volumes are Fourever, Mr and Mrs Grimm, The Herald of Doom, Thing Vs Immortal Hulk, Point Of Origin, Empyre and The Forever Gate!
Volume #22 in the Fantastic Four Epic Collections
From the Inniverse to INFINITY WAR! When interdimensional warlord Occulus targets Sue and Franklin, what strange change will Franklin undergo? Then, as the Magus unleashes his army of twisted doppelgangers on Earth and the foursome battle their evil duplicates, the Invisible Woman must face the dark side of her psyche: Malice! The Human Torch panics when ambushed by a cabal of cosmic villains and does the unthinkable! Johnny Storm’s plight as a fugitive from justice brings the “new Fantastic Four” out of the woodwork, and the Thing’s battle with Wolverine will leave long-lasting – and very literal – scars! And when Uatu summons our heroes to the moon, what has forced the Watcher to break his vow of non-interference? What else…but Doom?!
The previous volumes are: The World’s Greatest Comic Magazine, The Master Plan Of Doctor Doom, The Comic Of Galactus, The Mystery Of The Black Panther, The Name Is Doom, At War With Atlantis, Battle Of The Behemoths, All In The Family, The More Things Change…, Into The Time Stream and The New Fantastic Four. Be warned, there are a lot of issues missing in between each Epic Collection volume, so even if you read all these volumes first, you will still be missing some adventures.
Dane Whitman rides again as the Black Knight, wielder of the magical Ebony Blade! But Dane bears the burden of the blade’s curse: an insatiable lust for blood and mayhem that forever threatens to swallow its owner in darkness. Following the battle against the King in Black, a reinvigorated Dane has a renewed sense of purpose. But the Ebony Blade is the key to a new enemy’s evil plan, and only Dane can prevent the coming death and destruction. The conflict – spanning from mythical Camelot to modern-day NYC – will test Dane like never before and challenge everything he believes about himself, the Ebony Blade and the entire history of his lineage! What is the dread power of…the Ebony Chalice?
I’d recommend having some level of knowledge of Black Knight and Dane Whiteman before you go into this, as well as Camelot. Luckily for you, I’ve got a character profile coming up for this character this week!
And that’s everything coming out this week, what’s on your pull list? I’m going to be checking out the Death Of Doctor Strange Tie Ins, as well as the latest Dan Slott Fantastic Four!
