All-New Marvel Now! Onsale In July 2014

Hey readers, how is your summer coming along so far? I hope that it has been grand and that some of you have even managed to squeeze some vacation into your plans. Now its time to say that without any further adieu, here is my monthly presentation of the Marvel Comics titles that are being delivered under their branding of the “All-New Marvel Now!”. As I have done before, these are the brand new first issues that we shall be seeing in this month of July 2014. While there are not a whole lot of brand new title releases with this particular month it’s okay because there are plenty of continuing series to enjoy and you can see them on the shelves of your neighborhood comics shop when you drop in.   Longer termed followers of this particular category know that I’ve been snipping the descriptions of the titles from the Official Wikipedia entries since that let’s us get a quick premise of the new title and an idea of who the creative team will be on the title. It’s much easier for this particular solicitation purposes but don’t worry I will be offering up my sage comics wisdom after its all done. Here we go with the newest first issues from Marvel Comics.

PiercingMetal Goes To Special Edition: NYC 2014 – Day 1 Pt. 1

For the next few posts I’ll be presenting my findings from the brand new convention known as the “Special Edition NYC” and for those who have never heard of it, I guess the best way to sum it up is to say that its a smaller scaled NY Comic Con and one that is specifically focused on the comic book creators, their companies and retailers. This weekends event would also be the first go round of this convention and much like the Comic Con would be held at the spacious Javits Center, but in its North Wing.  As you see by the photo below I had secured the proper Press Credentials and would be able to explore the event as a member of the media.  As I have done with numerous NY Comic Con postings, our readers can count on plenty of photographs and thoughts that bring them into the happening with us.  Let’s get to work.

The Official Media Pass for Special Edition NYC

The first Cosplayer that I encountered was this superb Batman Beyond fella.  I gladly included him in the coverage and even began to load up the Official PiercingMetal Instagram with images from this point on.

Opening Today: “Captain America The Winter Soldier” (4/4/2014)

Now I realize that I used this to open up the broadcast post about the first Captain America film when it came out but its such a good song that I just had to do it again, here we go 🙂

“When Captain America throws his mighty shield! All those who chose to oppose his shield must yield! If he’s led to a fight and a duel is due then the red and the white and the blue will come through when Captain America throws his mighty shield!!!!!”

Okay, that is out of my system now for the most part but how cool is it that the second film featuring Cap is opening up today as a part of the continued efforts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Pretty damn cool in my book. The poster is pretty dramatic as well, check it out….
