11th January Marvel Comic Releases

There is only one new issue this week, but a few new volumes releasing!

Single Issue:

Avengers: War Across Time by Paul Levitz

Thor! Iron Man! Captain America! Giant-Man & the Wasp! The classic Avengers against the Hulk on the streets of New York! It’s the beginning of a showdown with Kang the Conqueror that will span the centuries! Eisner Hall of Famer Paul Levitz makes his Marvel debut (unless you count a letter in AMAZING ADVENTURES #5) teamed with acclaimed artist Alan Davis!

I’d recommend having knowledge of the characters mentioned, but you should be fine outside of that.

Bind Ups:

Amazing Spider-Man by Nick Spencer Omnibus volume 1

Few writers have put Peter Parker through the wringer quite like Nick Spencer! His epic and sprawling run begins with an alien invasion, a troublesome doppelganger and a shocking new roommate: the villainous Boomerang! And things only get wilder from there for Spider-Man as an old romance is rekindled, a new friendship forms and J. Jonah Jameson causes a different kind of trouble as a fiercely pro-Spidey shock jock! Threats mount – including the Enforcers, Taskmaster and Black Ant, Kraven the Hunter, Electro and the new Sinister Syndicate! Carnage wreaks havoc, Spider-Man 2099 returns from the future and Black Cat does what she does best – but who is the horrifying villain lurking in the shadows? 

The start of the hugely popular Nick Spencer Spider-Man run, so if you’ve wanted to check this out, now is the perfect time!

Deadpool Bad Blood by Rob Liefeld, Chris Sims and Chad Bowers

Wade Wilson has been shooting, stabbing and otherwise annoying people for a long
time. He’s made a lot of enemies. But one he can’t quite place is the brutal Thumper,
who keeps showing up out of the blue to pound him into jelly! What is Deadpool’s
past connection to this beefy face-masher? Wade has as much of a clue as you do!
So he decides to call in some help from an old friend/foe/friend: Domino! Can Dead and Domino uncover Thumper’s secrets before Wade gets his keister kicked in
again? And can answers be found in a secret mission from years ago that brought
Deadpool and X-Force together? Cable, Garrison Kane and more familiar faces guest in Rob Liefeld’s most ambitious Deadpool story ever! Check it out – before
Deadpool checks YOU out! 

A rerelease from 2017, so make sure you haven’t already got this before buying it again!

Deadpool: Black, White And Blood by Tom Taylor and others

What’s black, white and red all over? A collection packed with blood-drenched
tales of violence and mayhem led by Marvel’s mirthful mercenary himself, DeadWade Wilson curses streaming platforms, laments the loss of video stores and
invades a foreign country – all in the name of his favourite screen idol! Deadpool
enjoys his long-awaited reunion with Gabby Kinney, A.K.A. Scout! The Merc with a
Mouth battles the man who can’t miss: Bullseye! Plus: The age-old parable of how
Deadpool got his swords – and more, filled with gore! You want to see today’s top
talent take it to the edge to bring you the wildest Wade Wilson adventures yet?! Then
this is the book for you! It’s like a classic black-and-white movie – but with way
more blood

I’d recommend knowing a bit about Deadpool and Gabby Kinney, as well as the Black, White And Blood series first.

Mech Strike: Monster Hunters by Christos Gage

In AVENGERS: MECH STRIKE, the Avengers donned new mech armor to battle an unprecedented threat. Now a trio of the world’s most notorious super villains, assembled by Doctor Doom, have used the Eye of the Kraken to give themselves a mystical – and monstrous! – upgrade. In order to defeat their foes, the Avengers must undergo a similar transformation – and become MONSTER HUNTERS! But will the heroes be consumed by their dark new powers? Featuring classic Avengers characters and some surprising new additions to the team, all outfitted in their very own mech armor!

You’ll definitely want to read the 2021 Mech Strike by Jed MacKay first before reading this.

Mighty Marvel Masterworks: Doctor Strange volume 2: Eternity War by Stan Lee and others

First, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko introduced the Master of the Mystic Arts. Now, in this second Mighty Marvel Masterworks volume they make him a legend. The Eternity
Saga is a multi-part adventure that many consider it be one of the greatest Marvel stories of all time. In it, Baron Mordo gains new power from the dread Dormammu,
so much power that he strikes down the Ancient One and forces Doctor Strange to go on the run. As Strange races across the globe and into new dimensions, he seeks
the aid of the all-encompassing Eternity. The epic conclusion pits Strange against Dormammu with the lives of Clea and the Ancient One in the balance. Also featuring
Doctor Strange/Spider-Man iconic team-up! 

The first in this Doctor Strange series is called The World Beyond.

Trials Of X volume 4 by Zeb Wells and others

Secrets and lies in the Trials of X! Psylocke’s hidden deal with Mister Sinister is
about to come back to bite her – and cause a schism within the Hellions! MeanKrakoa comes under plant-based attack. Can X-Force get to the root of the problem before Dr. Bloodroot kills again? Storm has ascended to the throne of Ara- and now she speaks for Sol on the galactic stage. But when you have to prove to your people who you are, every single day without fail…what becomes of who you were? And Nightcrawler must act fast to avoid catastrophe as the laws of Krakoa (and physics) are tested to their limits!

Make sure you have all of Dawn Of X (part two), Reign Of X and the first three Trials Of X volumes before getting this – I’ll be updating the reading order soon, once more Trials volumes have been released.

And that’s everything coming out this week! What’s going on your pull list this new comic book day? I’m picking up Trials Of X!
