Marvel Comics #1’s Available In January 2015

Welcome to 2015 my comic loving friends and even though we are now three day in I hope that it is going to be a “MARVELOUS” one for you (I’m sorry I had to go for the pun since I am raring to go with the website and this exciting New Year). Here we are at our January first issues that will be served up by Marvel Comics. As usual the post features provided press copy and images and then some thoughts from me as to my favorites from the batch. Let’s get rolling.

Comic - Ant-Man 1 - 2015

Ant-Man: Scott Lang has never exactly been the world’s best super hero. Heck, most people don’t even think he’s been the best ANT-MAN — and the last guy invented Ultron and joined the Masters of Evil, so that’s saying something. But when the SUPERIOR IRON MAN calls with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Scott’s going to get a chance to turn it all around and be the hero he’s always dreamed of being. Sure he’s been to prison! Sure he’s been through a messy divorce! Sure he’s been, um… dead. But this time is different! This time nothing is gonna stop the astonishing ANT-MAN!

This month from Valiant Comics we only have two brand new offerings and as I’ve done before I have copied the press information and shared the cover art.

Marvel Comics #1’s Available In December 2014

Keeping up with the comic book coolness that is heading our way in December, its time to shine a spotlight on the folks at Marvel Comics who will be starting our preparations into 2015 with two new titles in “SHIELD” and “All-New Miracleman Annual”. As I’ve done before, I’ve procured the cover art and creative teams behind these titles and have respectfully copied the premise from official press copy or their online descriptions for your benefit. Let’s get right down to it as I still have to work off that Thanksgiving turkey 🙂

Comic - All-New Miracleman Annual 1 - 2014

All-New Miracleman Annual #1: It was the series that changed comics forever, injecting new sophistication into the medium and becoming one of the most significant works in comic history. Marvel is proud to present December’s ALL-NEW MIRACLEMAN ANNUAL #1, bringing you new stories from legendary talents! Celebrated comic creators Grant Morrison, Joe Quesada, Peter Milligan, and Mike Allred unite for a star-studded, can’t-miss comic event that will have the whole industry talking! “Miracleman is a legend that resonates deeply in the world of comics,” says Marvel Editor in Chief Axel Alonso. “Without its trailblazing stories, who knows what the landscape of comics would look like today? If you want to live up to that pedigree, you don’t pull any punches. That’s why we tapped two incredible creative teams — Grant Morrison and Joe Quesada; Peter Milligan and Mike Allred — for this historic annual. ALL-NEW MIRACLEMAN ANNUAL #1 is a must-read for any fan of the character, or the medium in general.”
