Marvel Comics First Issues Coming In July 2019

Hello my friends and welcome to July where the summer is only going to get hotter thanks to the awesome comic book releases and the soon to be opening film “Spider-Man: Far From Home”. That film opens tomorrow so if you’ve fallen behind about it, just click HERE to see the Official Trailer so you are well informed. Oh and super important is the news that “Avengers: Endgame” has returned to the theaters and is slowly closing in on “Avatar” to become the highest grossing film of all time. Let’s make that happen my fellow geeks since it’s at $2.62 billion or something like that as I post this latest narrative. So there are a LOT of issues coming from Marvel Entertainment this month and you are going to want a lot of them. As usual, the finer details and any posted images come from their provided resources and the closing editorial is all me. Let’s go.
