Every month, comic publishers release their solicitation announcements to provide information to readers and retailers on comics that are coming out in three months’ time, but there’s so much information dropped at once that a lot can slip through the cracks.
This month, in Marvel's January solicitations, it's all about the big returns, with some fan favorite heroes and villains showing up, a critically acclaimed character getting a second chance, and love in the air in the Spider-Verse.
Lion Forge Comics may have had the best New York Comic Con out of all the publishers in attendance, as the up-and-coming publisher unveiled a host of good news about its growth and expansion for the next year. In addition to the news that it has acquired Magnetic Press and will publish titles under the new imprint known as Magnetic Collection, Lion Forge also announced the formation of new imprints focused on young readers and superhero stories.
Separately, Lion Forge and Magnetic Press are two of the most exciting and innovative up-and-coming independent publishers in the entire comics industry. Both publishers have a commitment to diversity and inclusivity that other companies would struggle to match, and both publishers have been lauded with acclaim in a relatively short amount of time.
It only makes sense for the two companies to work together, with Lion Forge announcing yesterday that it has acquired Magnetic Press and will release upcoming Magnetic Press titles through an imprint known as Magnetic Collection, which will be curated by Magnetic Press president and publisher Mike Kennedy.
Occupy Avengers, the upcoming series from David F. Walker and Carlos Pacheco, sees Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye, borrowing a name from an activist movement that was a really big deal in 2011 as he attempts to "take back justice!" Check out an unlettered preview, courtesy of Marvel.
San Diego Comic Con is without a doubt the biggest event on the industry’s calendar, and people will be flying from around the world to attend panels, watch trailers, meet creators, and make friends. This year’s event is bigger than ever, with so much going on every single day that it can be difficult to sift through all that information and decide how to spend your time.
Yesterday we gave a rundown on what to expect on Thursday and Friday, but things heat up as the weekend kicks in and the major studios make their presence known. Expect big reveals from Marvel Studios, DC's TV offerings and more, plus great panels featuring your favorite creators in comics.
Marvel’s reveal of its Marvel NOW line of comics set for release in the wake of Civil War II has taken the form of a steady drip of announcements over the past week and a half, but now news is flooding in, and not all from official sources. Leaked scans of this week's Marvel NOW Previews magazine revealing the publisher's line-up for October and beyond have hit the internet via sites such as Reddit and 4chan.
We’ve rounded up all the information we could find to give you a sense of the new landscape of the Marvel Universe this fall.
If the previous few years were all about the Inhumans at Marvel, then 2016 is the year of Squadron Supreme. Next month sees the release of the third title under that umbrella in the form of Nighthawk by David Walker, Ramon Villalobos and Tamra Bonvillain. The new series sees a cross-dimensional Nighthawk faced with a serial killer that reminds him of his methods perhaps a bit too much, and we've got a preview of the first issue.
Crossovers are all the rage at Dark Horse this year, as the publisher announced two huge new miniseries at Emerald City Comicon this past weekend, mixing up its licensed properties with those of publishers such as Boom Studios and 2000 AD, with Judge Dredd crossing over with some familiar alien threats, and Tarzan paying a visit to a very familiar planet. Dark Horse also unveiled a brand new ongoing series from Rat Queens writer Kurtis Wiebe and newcomer Mindy Lee, which has been described as Rat Queens in space!
When you look at the DC Universe, you see a whole lot of people running around with ultra-powerful space rings, magic lassos, and cybernetic sound cannons. Like, a lot of people. It's actually at the point where you start to wonder why the government doesn't get involved and at least make someone get a license before they run around starting to shoot criminals with blasts of white noise. Well, now, in the pages of David Walker, Felipe Watanabe and Oclair Albert's Cyborg #9 it seems like they're actually getting around to it - at least where cybernetics are concerned.
Marvel is getting the old band back together. Power Man and Iron Fist are back at it in a new ongoing series for the fan favorite Heroes For Hire duo. The return also falls in line with Marvel’s plan to create individual Netflix shows for the aforementioned heroes, with Power Man, aka Luke Cage, coming up later this year.
Writer David Walker and artist Sanford Greene seem to be crafting the newest comic series with the both sets of audiences in mind. Power Man and Iron Fist #1 offers a slow build as readers are reintroduced to the characters and their easy, familiar bond.
