Marvel Comics First Issues Coming In April 2018

Hello my friends, today is one of those wild occurrences because its not only the Passover and Easter holidays, but its also April Fools Day and we hope that this notice finds you well. I’m ready to start an exciting month of media stuff and will be dishing out the first issues and special occurences that are heading to the racks of our local comic book retailer from the Marvel Comics side of the fence down below. So, without any further adieu, let’s get down to business. As always the larger copy and visuals come from the publicity side of the House Of Ideas but these bookend editorial notes are all us. Remember that many issues have variant covers and there are dozens of other concurrently running titles on the stands that we do not feature here.
