Marvel Comics First Issues Coming April 2017

Greetings my Marvelous Marvel maniacs, we are here and its April 1st but it’s no time for fooling around as there are plenty of new first issues launching this month for some sure to be exciting series. Before we get started did you see that trailer for the upcoming “Spider-Man: Homecoming” movie? I posted it on THIS LINK so please check it out if you haven’t yet and let us know what you thought in the posts comments. Now back to the news at hand. As in previous posts I’m sharing the provided copy from the Bullpen itself along with images for these new launches and almost every single issue has multiple variant covers. Remember that there are scores of other concurrently running titles but we’re only focusing on the firsts (and occasional seconds) with this posting. Here we go.
