In anticipation of the film's release, Comixology has a sale on some of the most must-have Doctor Strange collections, including one of the very best original graphic novels Marvel has ever released.
The Unworthy Thor #1 sees a return to the spotlight for the Odinson, and judging by this preview it's going to be a pretty action-packed comeback.
The preview pages are unlettered, but it's not clear if there would need to be any word balloons on these pages anyway. Maybe just a caption at the beginning to tell readers what planet this is, where Odinson, the once and future Thor, is fighting a whole horde of alien warriors.
Writer Jason Aaron and artist Chris Bachalo are still going strong on Doctor Strange. The 12th issue starts a new storyline called "Blood in the Aether." It features a powerless Stephen Strange, weakened by the events of "The Last Days of Magic," forced to deal with all of his greatest enemies who've decided, for obvious reasons, that this is the perfect time to come after him.
The preview features Strange hiding out in what looks like a mystical Tiki Bar, which is then attacked by something terrifying, which he must fend off with just a glowing green sword.
In the days before the Flood, the world was full of violence. Welcome to The Goddamned, an Image series by the Scalped writer/artist team of Jason Aaron and R. M. Guéra, that explores a world so grim that God saw no option but to destroy it.
In 2016, Jason Aaron is a superstar writer working on titles like The Mighty Thor and Star Wars, while also putting out hit creator-owned books such as Southern Bastards. Several years ago, however, he was an up-and-comer with one hit Vertigo miniseries and an ongoing that was starting to garner some buzz, and he was let loose on a handful of Marvel titles where he established himself as a key player for the company to build itself around.
This week, Comixology has a sale on select titles from across Jason Aaron's time at Marvel Comics, and among them are some comics that you may have missed when they were coming out, which you absolutely need to grab while they're on sale.
