Marvel Comics First Issues Coming In October 2016

Welcome to October my comic book loving friends, there is certainly a lot of awesome stuff coming out this month. We’re going to get a new version of The Champions which should be interesting to read based on who forms the roster along with some Spider-Man related stuff that deals with the clone stuff from years ago in a few titles. Let’s see how that works out. As usual the press copy comes from their resources along with the artwork but I will chime in at the close. Almost all of these titles come with numerous variant covers if you collect them and a focus on this group is that of “Champions” and the still being done “Hip Hop” covers. Hey Marvel, how about some Rock and Roll covers for the fans of that stuff. Let’s go.
