This week it’s a small New Comic Book Day with only three new releases!
Marvel’s most enigmatic hero, in the premiere issue of his first-ever solo title! Mercenary Marc Spector. Millionaire Steven Grant. Cab driver Jake Lockley. Each is a different side of the same man. Together, they become one – to do what they must – as the macabre Moon Knight! But this silver-clad avenger of the night will soon meet his match in the ruthless Bushman – a face from his past, returned to plague him anew! The visionary pairing of writer Doug Moench and artist Bill Sienkiewicz presents the definitive take on Marc Spector’s dynamic origin – and delves deep into the bizarre life of Moon Knight, the Fist of Khonshu! It’s one of the all-time great Marvel comic books, boldly re-presented in its original form, ads and all!
Luke Cage burst onto the comics scene as a new kind of hero for a new era, a hero for hire. His exploits were set against 1970s New York’s grit and the plight of the city’s people, all while incorporating larger-than-life villains and even the occasional Avenger. As the first African-American super hero to headline in his own series, Luke Cage’s adventures were as historic as they were exciting. Now, his complete solo series is collected in one massive Omnibus edition. Experience the first appearance of Cottonmouth, Cage’s evolving relationship with Claire Temple and the debut of Bill Foster as Giant-Man. Uncover the secrets of Security City and witness Cage battle for the title “Power Man.”
The omnibus edition of Luke Cage’s origins and his first-ever solo series!
Where were you in June of 1962? We know where Spider-Man was: Making his historic debut in Amazing Fantasy #15. But that wasn’t the only thing going on in that all-important month in Marvel history: Thor first held aloft the hammer Mjolnir. Hank Pym donned his cybernetic helmet, becoming Ant-Man. The FF squared off against Namor and Doctor Doom. Kid Colt mixed it up with the Circus of Crime. Millie the Model got mixed up in more Hanover hijinks. Patsy and Hedy worked on their frenemy-ship. Star-crossed lovers dealt with the ups and downs of romance, all while tales of horror and fantasy stories crept from the pages of titles like Strange Tales. Marvel: June 1962 Omnibus collects every comic from this month of Marvel milestones!
An interesting bind up, as it collects everything Marvel released in June 1962, so if you want to look into classic Marvel Comics, but aren’t sure which series to check out, then this could be a good one to go for!
And that’s everything coming out this week, that’s either starting a new series or the latest bind up in a series! What’s going on your pull list?
