This April, the fate of Latveria, the world, and the balance of Cosmic Power in the Marvel Universe all rests on one big decision - and one cruel act will forever change the relationship between the Fantastic Four and Victor Von Doom! It’s the terrifying, epic, and final chapter of “Herald of Doom,” coming this April, and Marvel is excited to reveal a brand-new cover from series artist Esad Ribic!

01.05.2019 - CONAN THE BARBARIAN Makes His Magnificent Return!

Conan has made his triumphant return! The superstar creative team of Jason Aaron, Mahmud Asrar, and Esad Ribic are bringing new tales of the sword-slashing hero to comic readers everywhere, and today, Marvel is proud to present this launch trailer for CONAN THE BARBARIAN #1 featuring Editor-In-Chief C.B. Cebulski, and Jason Aaron!


“I’ve wanted to write Conan pretty much the whole time I’ve been in comics,” added Aaron. “I’m just trying to do a story that feels like that – that feels like this is written by a guy who has wanted to tell stories of this character for most of his life. It’s the book I’ve wanted to do since I was literally 13 years old, and Mahmud is the perfect artist for Conan.”

“A good hero is always defined by a good villain, and Conan has some of the best. But for this storyline, we knew we had to come up with something special, so Jason Aaron came up with the Crimson Witch,” teased Cebulski.




Don’t miss CONAN THE BARBARIAN #1, on sale now in comic shops, on the Marvel Comics App, and on Marvel.com! To find a comic shop near you, visit www.comicshoplocator.com or call 1-888-comicbook.

12.18.2018 - IDW Relaunching Transformers Comics Coming in March 2019!

Cybertron’s Golden Age of Peace and Prosperity, Shattered by a Single Death

IDW Publishing proudly announces that a brand-new Transformers series will debut in March 2019 that will explore the very moment when a glorious, peaceful Cybertron begins its downward spiral into chaos.

Available twice monthly, IDW’s Transformerscomic will be written by Brian Ruckley, author of the Godless World fantasy trilogy, and illustrated by Angel Hernandez (Star Trek: Discovery – Succession) and Ron Joseph(Micronauts: Wrath of Karza).

In this new Transformers comic, IDW will explore Cybertron in ways never seen by audiences before – delving into an idyllic society, peaceful for thousands of years, as it faces the most momentous event in its history: the mysterious end of a single life. Through the eyes of young Bumblebee and his friends, fans will witness conspiracies forming, harmony giving way to conflict, and the very fabric of Cybertronian civilization tearing itself apart.

“Bringing Transformers fans this story is a real privilege,” says Brian Ruckley. “But just as important, it’s an amazing opportunity for new readers to discover and explore one of the biggest universes – and one of the best casts of characters – that science fiction has to offer, and to get in right at the start of a truly epic saga.”

Ron Joseph says, "In my youth, I devoured everything Transformers – toys, comics, the cartoon, the movie – with a Unicron-like hunger. ‘Robots in Disguise’ dominated my every waking moment. To join IDW’s creative team for the launch of a Transformers comic is staggering, and easily one of the greatest moments of my life."   

“We are eager to begin this new chapter in Transformers storytelling,” says Michael Kelly, Hasbro’s Vice President of Global Publishing. “We are excited to begin a tale that will be accessible and appealing to readers unfamiliar with Transformers lore, while still providing the depth and drama that our long-time fans expect. It’s a big responsibility, but we’ve got the right team and the right characters to do it.”

The debut issue of this new Transformers comic will be available with multiple cover variants, by artists Gabriel Rodriguez, Angel Hernandez, Casey W. Coller, and Freddie E. Williams II. Issue #2, also available in March, will feature covers by Nelson Daniel, Ron Joseph, and Jeffrey Veregge.

For information on how to secure copies of IDW’s new biweekly Transformers series, please contact your local comic shop or visit www.comicshoplocator.com to find a store near you.
