Marvel Comics Asks “Who Will Stand…When The Last Guardian Falls”

WHO WILL STAND?
Marvel Comics has posed their readers a simple question with “Who Will Stand” and this is followed by “When the Last Guardian Falls”, as in the coming months a brand-new Guardians Of The Galaxy team will rise from the ashes of the old one. Uh oh, I guess I better peruse some collected editions since I had no idea the current team was heading out the galactic door. The new series hits the racks in January of 2019 and will be the combined efforts of Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw (writer and artist respectively). These four fun broadcast images began running the other day but I had posts in queue and had to wait until now to share them with you. Should more arrive after I post them, I will add into this narrative like we do with the variant covers of the multiple comics we find being revealed in drips and drabs.

Marvel Comics Announces: “Venom” #1 (Coming May 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 “Venom” title. It’s proven to be a busy year already for the “Lethal Protector” for not only has he had a bunch of “True Believers” comics come out, but also a number of “Variant Covers” celebrating his existence AND the Teaser Trailer for the upcoming film by Sony Pictures.

The Press Release:
New creative teams. New series. New directions. New beginnings. It all kicks off this May with VENOM #1!

“Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be rolling out new beginnings for a few of our key franchises-new creative teams, new starting points, new storylines-all the big stuff that we’ve been building towards since LEGACY began,” says SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “This isn’t a clearing of the slate-while these new starts will kick off with new #1s, we’ll be maintaining the classic LEGACY issue counts as dual numbering on these titles as well. Oh, and don’t read anything into not seeing a character on the Jim Cheung piece…we can only squeeze so many characters onto there without killing poor Jim!”
