06.14.2018 - The Origin of the Very First Ghost Rider Revealed in AVENGERS #7!

Jason Aaron and Sara Pichelli team up for a special story about the beginning of the Marvel Universe!
                                                                                                              
You know his name…you know his face…and you know the flaming woolly mammoth that he rides into battle. Last year, MARVEL LEGACY introduced Odin and his Prehistoric Avengers to critical acclaim, with their story becoming the number one comic in the industry—and now, Marvel invites you to witness the origin of the very first Ghost Rider! Superstar artist Sara Pichelli (Fantastic Four, FCBD Avengers) joinsAvengers writer Jason Aaron for this special “one and done” story that takes you back in time to 1,000,000 BC!

“Fans have been intrigued by the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC and the story they represent since Jason first introduced them in the MARVEL LEGACY one-shot last year,” said SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “So this issue represents the first peeling back of the onion to reveal a little bit more about who they are and what they're about. And it’s a cool and affecting story all by itself, even if you know nothing about the Avengers of 1MBC.”

It’s a deep dive into a period of Marvel history that has never been explored…until now! And this is a story thatno Marvel fan will want to miss! It all starts this September, when AVENGERS #7 hits comic shops!

06.14.2018 - Because You Demanded It! Marvel Announces The Return of THE UNSTOPPABLE WASP!

The acclaimed series returns with original writer Jeremy Whitley, featuring all-new art by Gurihiru!
                                                                                                              
You asked for it – you got it! In response to popular demand, one of Marvel’s most acclaimed books is returning to the Marvel Universe along, featuring the return of best-selling and award-winning writer Jeremy Whitley along with brand new art by Gurihiru (The Unbelievable Gwenpool)!

This October, get ready to welcome Nadia Van Dyne and the Agents of G.I.R.L. back to the Marvel Universe in THE UNSTOPPABLE WASP #1!

Nadia’s new story finds her teaming up with Agents of G.I.R.L. and Janet Van Dyne to uncover mysterious connections between A.I.M. and Nadia’s father, Hank Pym. “I think we're going to see a lot more of the Nadia we got to know in the last two issues of the first volume, one who doesn't have all of the answers,” Whitley told Marvel.com. “It wasn't so long ago that Nadia was a part-time Avenger with very few social obligations. Now she's a Champion, has responsibilities with G.I.R.L., and has a lot more people in her life than she ever has before. A lot of this first story is going to be about how Nadia reacts to having so many more commitments in her life. We're also going to deal a lot more with what she's inherited from Hank, both in her civilian life and as the Wasp. Hank's had more than his fair share of enemies -- and right now, he's off making more.”

What he uncovers in the catacombs is far more terrifying than he could have imagined. From there? Things get really bad.”
