09.19.2017 - Jean Grey Returns To The Marvel Universe In PHOENIX RESURRECTION!

Adult Jean Grey rises again!
                                                                                                              
When Jean Grey died heroically in Grant Morrison’s epic run of NEW X-MEN, she left a void among her mutant family – and in the world. For over a decade, the X-Men have lived with the fact that Jean Grey is no longer with them as a team member and a friend – and now, this winter, adult Jean Grey will live again, in a return fans have been demanding for years.

Marvel is excited to announce the official return of adult Jean Grey in PHOENIX RESURRECTION, with a story by newly exclusive writer Matthew Rosenberg (Secret Warriors, Punisher) and art by superstar artist Leinil Yu (Secret Empire). As a true celebration of the character’s power and iconic status, the five-issue epic will also include five blockbuster artists taking on Jean Grey throughout the run, as well as Phoenix Variant covers that will begin in December.

“Matt came to us with a really interesting and unique approach to bringing Jean back,” said senior editor Mark Paniccia. “It’s not what we expected, and plays to Matt’s biggest strengths as a storyteller. This is very cool mystery building to a mind-warping climax. And it has plenty of what you’d expect from an X-MEN epic of this magnitude. Action, romance, sacrifice, lots of X-Men and five great artists.”

Strange events are no surprise to the X-Men, but when events start occurring that are more specific and strange than usual, the group is forced to confront the truth: could Jean be alive after all? And how will thisJean Grey deal with a world that is now so different from the one she left years ago?

“It's such a mind-blowing honor to bring back the original Jean Grey,” said series writer Matthew Rosenberg. “I've been an X-Men fan my whole life and Jean is, in my mind, the true soul of the X-Men. So we aren't taking this lightly. We're going for that perfect balance of universe shaking epic and intimate personal drama that only the X-Men ever truly achieve. This is all hands on deck for the X-Men as every available member heads into battle for the soul of their team and maybe even the fate of the Marvel Universe.”

“This is just the beginning,” teased Paniccia. “Something this big will leave quite a footprint on the Marvel Universe. Jean will have a startling new role after this, and you’re left wondering, how will the rest of the X-Men respond? What will happen to young Jean Grey?”

Fulfilling the promise of an exciting return in MARVEL LEGACY, don’t miss Jean Grey’s newest adventure – PHOENIX RESURRECTION hits comic shops December 27th! And be sure to head to your local comic shop to pick up December’s True Believers Phoenix comics!

In Season Five, newly appointed Mayor Oliver Queen finds himself challenged as he fights on two fronts for the future of Star City. With his right hand, John Diggle, back in the military and his sister Thea adamant about hanging up her vigilante hood as Speedy, Team Green Arrow is down to just Oliver and Felicity – but they’re no longer the only vigilantes in town. Green Arrow’s public defeat of Damien Darhk at the end of Season Four has inspired a new crop of masked heroes to step up and defend the city, though their painful inexperience makes them obstacles rather than allies in the field. The arrival of a deadly new adversary will force Oliver to confront questions about his own legacy, both as mayor and as the Green Arrow.

09.15.2017 - VENOM INC Arrives In The Marvel Universe!

Ryan Stegman, Dan Slott and Mike Costa lead the six-issue crossover starting in December
                                                                                                              
New York, NY—September 15, 2017—Venom is sweeping across the Marvel Universe, and in an epic new crossover, Eddie Brock finally makes his way into Spider-Man’s world with VENOM INC. Announced exclusively on Marvel’s weekly podcast This Week In Marvel, the six-part story kicks off in VENOM INC/ALPHA #1, written by superstar writers Dan Slott and Mike Costa, with art by Ryan Stegman.

“We’re in a bit of a Venom renaissance—a Ven-aissance?—of late, and I got real excited when I not only heard about Venom Inc., but that we’d get to announce it on This Week in Marvel!” said Ryan Penagos, Vice President and Executive Editor of Marvel Digital Media. “If you haven’t listened to any of the 300+ episodes of This Week in Marvel yet, I hope you come for the news we’ll continue to break going forward, and stay for the interviews, in-depth look at all the amazing Marvel Comics out each week, great community, and more.”

Following ALPHA #1, the story continues in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN and VENOM. At the heart of the story? The relationship between fan favorites Peter Parker and Eddie Brock…who haven’t been face-to-face in years. Add in Flash Thompson, and this is one reunion you’re not going to want to miss.

“Flash Thompson] got to be that hero when he was Venom….but that was everything he’d wanted. And now it’s gone. It was robbed from him. And so, he’s trying to figure out what his role in life is…and where that story goes, I’m not gonna tell you,” teased Executive Editor Nick Lowe.

What can be said about VENOM INC? “You don’t get much more LEGACY than this story,” promised Lowe. “Twists! Turns! Classic Spider-Man characters, but all treading on new ground! And to have Ryan Stegman returning to AMAZING SPIDER-MAN? I’m embarrassed by the creative riches here!”

With classic Spider-Man characters, new villains, infamous Venom symbiote, and blockbuster storytelling by both the SPIDER-MAN and VENOMVERSE teams, VENOM INC promises to rock the world of our favorite Wall-Crawler. Don’t miss the most adventurous crossover yet – VENOM/ALPHA #1 hits comics shops on December 6th!

09.15.2017 - Journey To A New Planet With STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – STORMS OF CRAIT #1!

A new adventure for Luke and Leia begins this December
                                                                                                              
Marvel’s STAR WARS comics have pulled back the curtain on fan favorite Captain Phasma, introduced the world to rogue archeologist Doctor Aphra, and crafted stories that have enthralled fans across the galaxy. This December, even more secrets will be revealed when Marvel releases STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – STORMS OF CRAIT #1. Written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker (Star Wars: Join The Resistance) with art by Mike Mayhew (Star Wars, The Star Wars), the new mini-series gives fans a look behind the curtain at one very special planet in the galaxy: the mineral planet Crait.

In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it becomes a battleground between the Resistance and the First Order,  but that wasn’t the first time Crait became a place where heroes and villains clashed in their fight for the galaxy. Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa once took up arms on Crait and led the rebellion as they as they searched for a new home – and a new base for the Rebel Alliance. Tying in to the eagerly anticipated December film, STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – STORMS OF CRAIT promises to be a new and exciting adventure for all Star Wars fans – and a story that will change the galaxy as we know it.

“We’re excited for the opportunity to tell this story,” said editor Jordan D. White, “Tying the new sequel series in more tightly with the original trilogy era, and helping make the Galaxy Far Away a little more fleshed out. The Bens are a great fit in for Star Wars, as they showed in Join the Resistance, and Mike has did such great work on both covers and the Obi-Wan issues of the flagship Star Wars title, that we couldn’t be happier to have him back doing art for us.”

Find out what mysteries Crait holds for yourself when STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – STORMS OF CRAIT hits comic shops on December 27th!
