I’m going to need to program Thanos into my spell checker since it looks like I’m going to be typing his name a lot over the next few years. Marvel Comics bad guy Thanos has already shown up in the pages of Avengers Assemble, and will soon have his own miniseries titled Thanos Rising, and he will also be featured in Marvel’s 2013 Free Comic Book Day offering.
Titled Free Comic Book Day 2013: Infinity, the issue will be written by Jonathan Hickman (Avengers, Manhattan Projects) with art by Jim Cheung (Avengers: Children’s Crusade). The story will feature the start to the next big Marvel event, as well as having a sneak peak at said event and a reprint of Thanos’ first solo story.
Check out the cover below and you can pick up the issue, as well as many other free issues from almost every other comic publisher, by heading down to your local comic store on May 4th, 2013 for Free Comic Book Day.
Marvel’s big summer blockbuster has arrived!!! Pitting its two most important teams in the Marvel Universe just who WILL win when The Mighty Avengers take on The Uncanny X-Men in Avengers vs X-Men #1? The answer is a simple one: comic Readers.
The first issue in this miniseries is from Marvel mainstay Brian Michael Bendis and he’s in rare form here. Let’s be honest, in the past he has, let’s just say, taken his time with his storytelling. But not here! In this first issue, LOTS of things happen. The threat is introduced, explained, and the Avengers actually FIGHT with the X-Men!!! This is everything you’ve wanted in a big Marvel crossover.
Each and every week “Sheikie Baby!” MK2Fac3 and “Rowdy Roddy” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of March 14, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
Wednesday is THE DAY for new comics, and as per usual, Henchman21 and MK2Fac3 are here to tell you about all the books that they’re looking forward to. It’s another mirror image week where Henchie McHencherson and SK6Factory3 switch things up while one picks three singles and one collection, while the other does the opposite. I don’t know how much you know about how mirrors work, but that’s the way it goes, dollface. We’ve got a lot of books like Saucer Country, Queen Crab, Avengers Assemble, Saga, The World of Flashpoint featuring Batman, Womathology again, and so much more! Honey child, it’s a big week! Anyway, I don’t even know why I’m writing this, so I’ll see you back in a minute when we get to the meat of The GoD List!
Marvel‘s Cup of Joe panel Saturday at the 2010 C2E2 was chock full of news and one of the biggest surprises was the announcement of the return of the Young Avengers team of Allan Heinberg and Jim Cheung with a new 9-issue miniseries titled Avengers: The Children’s Crusade. The series launches in July and will run bi-monthly.
In a video of Heinberg explaining the series, he said that he is currently writing the script for issue six (with plans to have the whole series written by the time the first issue comes out), so even though it will take a year and a half for the series to be completed, it should be on time.
The story will focus on the Young Avengers characters that were created by Heinberg and Cheung, but will also feature the rest of the Avengers. The plot is said to be about Young Avengers member Wiccan as he tries to track down the Scarlet Witch, who may or may not be his mother.
