Week of February 3
Official Synopsis: Miles Morales has been doing the superhero thing for a while, now, but after SECRET WARS, he’ll be a full-fledged member of the Marvel Universe. Swinging next to The Invincible Iron Man, The Mighty Thor and the All-New Captain America as a card-carrying member of the Avengers is an adventure, but it’s not all fun and games for New York City’s main Spider-MAN! What happened in the eight month gap? It all starts in SPIDER-MAN #1! Written by Brian Michael Bendis. Art by Sara Pichelli.
Why You Should Buy This: Brian Michael Bendis has always been the writer of Miles, and we wouldn’t want it any other way. Miles Morales has always been a main part of the Ultimate Universe, and now he’s a main part of the new Marvel Universe. With Peter Parker promised to take a mentor role in Miles life, and with his mother revived in the aftermath of Secret Wars, this book is a must buy.
Official Synopsis: Something is not right in the house of Stark, and Tony must delve into the nooks and crannies of his international organization to find out what. Plus: The first big clues of major things to come in the Marvel Universe! Written by Brian Michael Bendis. Art by Mike Deodato.
Why You Should Buy This: This issue is the first start of a new story arc, so this is the perfect place to join on. With the announcement that Marvel will be publishing a second Iron Man book called International Iron Man, it is entirely possible that this international story will set up his other solo book. And with promises of clues of big things to come in the Marvel Universe (our guess: Civil War II), you can see why this is Marvel’s flagship book.
Official Synopsis: Between hosting a contingent of alien ambassadors, passive aggressive power struggles with her Flight Commander, Abigail Brand, and an insatiable itch to be on the front lines, Carol Danvers A.K.A. Captain Marvel struggles to find her footing on the new Alpha Flight Space Station. To top it off a mysterious ghost ship has entered protected Earth space…And it’s bearing the Star of Hala. Talk about a rough first week on the job… Written by Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas. Art by Kris Anka.
Why You Should Buy This: Captain Marvel has had a resurgence of popularity in the past few years. Between getting her own movie, and announced as a major character in Civil War II, Carol Danvers is a character that you should get to know because she’s not going away. It also helps that the first issue was amazing, and that this series is introducing a new Alpha Flight. This comic book is a must read.
Official Synopsis: The Witchfinder Wolves are here and Doctor Strange is in trouble. The Empirikul is coming, Magic’s days are numbered and Strange is not ready! Written by Jason Aaron. Art by Chris Bachalo.
Why You Should Buy This: For the longest time, Marvel hasn’t had an ongoing Doctor Strange comic. Now they do… And it is AMAZING! With gorgeous art, amazing storylines, and a super cast, this book gives you just a slice of the weirdness you’ll see in his upcoming movie. Get ready for “THE LAST DAYS OF MAGIC” next issue!
