If you thought you were being given a breather after the Marvel Comics first issue assault that came in November, then I suggest you close this posting or hit back and look at something else because there are a lot of new titles launching this month as well. The only upside is that there are not as many as we found in November since that was one expensive month. Below you’ll find the covers and some insight along with the creative teams involved which all comes from the Marvel Comics press side. As always I will return at the close to let you know what I think about this months run of titles. Here we go.
A-Force #1: A-Force, Assemble! From the ashes of Battleworld, Marvel’s newest hero Singularity has risen and entered the Marvel Universe. But she didn’t make the journey alone. To combat the most fearsome threats from across the multiverse, Singularity will summon the world’s mightiest team of Avengers to her side: She-Hulk. Captain Marvel. Dazzler. Medusa. Nico Minoru. Together, they are A FORCE to be reckoned with!
I’ll be getting to the monthly comic book solicitations for Marvel Comics very soon but first I wanted to share and help raise the celebrations as “Uncanny X-Men” reaches its 600th issue. There are numerous different covers to add to your collection so I’ve culled them all together along with the press release for you to enjoy. Check it out.
