Marvel Comics First Issues Coming August 2018

Welcome to August my friends and wow what an exciting month this is going to be. Not only are we hitting the eighth month of the 2018 year, but it falls on “New Comic Book” Day and with some monumental launches and one-shots hitting the racks this month I am going to start with the stuff coming out care of Marvel Comics. As usual, the copy and any images come care of their resources while the editorial closing is from our side of the fence. Let’s get down to business since there is a lot to absorb and so much so that you might need to cut back on a coffee or three during the week and ask your boss if a little overtime is possible.

FANTASTIC FOUR #1: FOUREVER Part One. BECAUSE YOU DEMANDED IT – THE WORLD’S GREATEST COMIC MAGAZINE IS BACK! Since the end of SECRET WARS, there’s been a gap in the Marvel Universe. A void no other team can fill. And it’s time for the world to move on. But can it? A life-changing decision by the Thing! A momentous declaration by the Human Torch! A clarion call-to-arms that summons Doctor Doom! And a signal in the sky that heralds the return of hope to the Marvel Universe! All this, and Alicia Masters adopts kittens! So cute! Plus, the Impossible Man!

AND BONUS STORIES ILLUSTRATED BY SIMONE BIANCHI AND SKOTTIE YOUNG! IF YOU READ ONLY ONE MARVEL COMIC THIS MONTH, THIS IS THE ONE!

“Fantastic Four Facsimile” #1

FANTASTIC FOUR #1 FACSIMILE: As a fresh era begins for Marvel’s First Family, revisit the original Fantastic Four #1 in this special commemorative edition! Stan Lee and Jack Kirby changed super hero storytelling forever when they introduced Reed Richards, Ben Grimm, and Susan and Johnny Storm. Together, the adventurous quartet blast off on an experimental rocket flight – only to be bombarded by life-altering cosmic rays! Reed becomes the elastic Mister Fantastic! Ben transforms into the rocky Thing! Sue turns into an Invisible Girl! And Johnny flames on as the Human Torch! They’ll use their incredible powers to help mankind – starting by fending off the menace of the Mole Man! Now, the book that started it all is re-presented in full – including its original ads – alongside suitably fantastic extras! It’s the next best thing to buying Fantastic Four #1 off the stands back in 1961!

Marvel Comics First Issues Coming In August 2016

Let’s get into the Marvel Comics offerings while we are at the Comic Book Solicitations time of the month. It’s always a fun way to start our coverage for me since I’m a pretty active reader here at the Metal Command HQ. As usual I am presenting the first issue offerings only and not the concurrently running titles. Cover art and premise comes care of the provided stuff from Marvel Entertainment PR and I’ll close up with some additional opinion on them at the close. Here we go.

"Civil War II: Ulysses" #1
“Civil War II: Ulysses” #1

CIVIL WAR II: ULYSSES #1 (OF 3) A CIVIL WAR II PREQUEL! How did Ulysses join the Inhumans? What difficult journey did he have to go through to master his powers?

MARVEL TSUM TSUM #1 (of 4): In case you’ve been living under a rock, Tsum Tsums are HUGE! Well, not LITERALLY (they’re actually pretty tiny) but these seemingly cute and cuddly creatures are sweeping the globe! So what happens when these pint-sized piles of fur find their way into the Marvel Universe? After a crate of them falls to Earth en route to THE COLLECTOR, one small group of Brooklyn teenagers will find out! Featuring all of your favorite Marvel heroes and villains, this is sure to be TSUM-thing you won’t want to miss!
