This week is the relaunch of the new Marvel Universe, with six new titles to choose from setting the structure for this new world.
ALL-NEW, ALL-DIFFERENT … MARVEL
Sure Secret Wars isn’t over yet, (and won’t be for some time) but Marvel historically loves to conquer the sales charts in the month of October, and this week looks like the biggest of the year.
Spearheading the charge is Invincible Iron Man #1 by Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez!
Billed as the flagship title of the new launch, just as the Iron Man movie was in the theaters. Expect new armors, new cast, and new villains, as well as a new direction and purpose for the character. This is the one to grab and their are lots of variants to go with it. These variants will be cover priced and first come first serve on Wednesday at noon! Variants like Cosplay, Action Figure, Putri Party, Skottie Young, Young Guns set and more!
Amazing Spider-Man #1 is this week as well, and it seems that Peter Parker is a global businessman traveling the world with his bodyguard Spider-Man in tow.
Next is a primer for all the new Avengers titles with Avengers #0.
- All-New, All-Different Avengers
- Squadron Supreme
- New Avengers
- Uncanny Avengers.
With a linking story to tie it all together. Variants for this will be cover price as well.
There’s actually two primer’s this week, including the All-New All Different Point One #1.
This one’s really fun, Doctor Strange #1 by Jason Aaron and Chris Bachelo.
Lastly in the Marvel category is Contest of the Champions #1.
It looks like the Maestro made it out of Secret Wars and is now running a Battle Realm pitting characters against each other. Based on the first ever Marvel miniseries in the 80’s as well as a currently popular video game.
To go with your purchase of any of the above books, we’ve got Iron Man Build an Armor pieces.
There will be six pieces total and this week we’ll have parts one through three. You’ll get one piece for any of the above books you purchase, even for multiples of the same title, up to all three pieces.
This is also a big week if you’re a Star Wars Fan, with four books coming out in one week.
Secret Wars #6 is even coming out as well. Thanks Marvel!
THE OTHER SIDE…
There’s also some really great stuff on the other side of the table as well, like DC’s new weekly Batman and Robin Eternal #1, and Paper Girls, the new indie from Brian Vaughan!
