He’s commanded the page in a blaze of glory…and now, this July, he’ll embark on his own solo adventure in COSMIC GHOST RIDER, an all-new limited series written by the character’s co-creator Donny Cates (Thanos, Doctor Strange) with art by one of the industry’s hottest new creators, Dylan Burnett!

Marvel Comics Announces The Return Of “The Fantastic Four”

The Press Release:
As revealed by Editor in Chief C.B. Cebulski in an official video from Marvel, FANTASTIC FOUR will return this summer in an all-new monthly series, written by Dan Slott (Amazing Spider-Man, Silver Surfer) with art by Sara Pichelli (Spider-Man: Miles Morales).

“I started my adventures in the Marvel Universe with a freaked-out Reed Richards, the Watcher and the Silver Surfer,” Slott told The New York Times in an interview. “I’ve wanted this for so long.”

“We’ve been waiting for the right creators to come available for this book,” Cebulski revealed during Marvel’s official announcement. “Fantastic Four is not an easy team to draw – The Thing is the big orange rock guy, Reed can move in all kinds of directions, Johnny is on fire when he flames on, and Sue, when she is invisible or not, you still have to make her presence felt in each panel — and Sara can just do that like nobody else.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: It was brief and to the point but honestly who needs much more when it is news such as this. I’m very happy to find the first family returning to Marvels line of titles because there was a time in my life as a fan of the medium that I felt it was one of the best reads on the stands. When the title was cancelled back in 2015, the sales on the title were down and the interest was waning based on the advance reports and clips from the “Fant4stic” film that was being released. Needless to say that movie was new levels of dreadful and if you wonder how bad, well, it made “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” seem like “Gone With The Wind”. I’m glad that the series is coming back and will be at the writing helm of Slott since he is a talented scribe who knows these characters quite well. I’m hopeful for great things and will be reserving a copy from my local comic book shop when it comes time to do that. Now that Disney owns the Fox Studios and has these characters back in their stable, we can hope for a proper, more to canon film being worked on. It’s going to take some time so let’s just plan on enjoying the series and the re-introduction of the Fantastic Four to the other Marvel titles that are currently on the shelf. What do you readers think of this news? Please chime in down in the comments below.

The Press Release:
After their scene-stealing theatrical debut in Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, Wakanda’s fiercest warriors are traveling outside of their country to fight new threats and new troubles, in an all-new story by award-winning science-fiction and fantasy author Nnedi Okorafor.

A Hugo and Nebula Award winner whose best-selling books include the Binti trilogy, Who Fears Death and Akaka Witch, Nnedi first brought her storytelling to Marvel in the digital comic series Black Panther: Long Live The King and in the Vernomverse anthology story “Blessing In Disguise.” With art by Alberto Jimenez Alqurquerque (Jean Grey), WAKANDA FOREVER: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 brings the Dora Milaje out of their vibranium city and into New York in the first of a three-part story when a Wakandan threat falls upon Manhattan – and they meet webslinger Peter Parker!

“Domino” #1

The Press Release:
Marvel’s femme fatale returns to comic books this spring with the superstar team of Gail Simone and David Baldeon! DOMINO will unleash her risqué, hard-core action on the Marvel Universe in an all-new story — and Marvel has your first look at the issue that will kick it all off.

“It’s just a huge pleasure having DOMINO be my comeback to Marvel,” said Simone. “She’s everything I love about comics: a kickass female adventurer who lives life at maximum volume. I just adore her. I love writing mercs and mutants again, I love digging deep into what being those things means in a world where nobody trusts them, not even other mercs and mutants.”

Marvel Announces “Captain America” #1 (Coming July 2018)

With Marvel’s recent announcement about a host of brand-new title launches and their sharing not only the cover art but several preview pages, I’m going to help rally the charge by giving each of them a posting. Here’s the scoop on the just announced “Captain America” title. Marvel’s Sentinel Of Liberty is going to reach 700 issues for his currently running title soon enough and I am guessing we shall also see him in action on the big screen once more when “Avengers: Infinity War” opens this April.

The Press Release:
New creative teams. New series. New directions. New beginnings. It all kicks off this July with CAPT AIN AMERICA #1!

“I think it’s a really exciting time to be writing Captain America right now,” said Coates. “The country is in an interesting place, and I look forward to inhabiting Steve Rogers’ character – this guy who has been a sort of awkward fit for the world, out of time as people say. I hope fans are excited to see something different, and I think there are some really compelling villains old school Captain America fans and Marvel fans will be familiar with.”
