As already noted over on “The Chronicles Of PiercingKen”, I was once again exploring The Book Expo (which was previously known as Book Expo America) as a member of the press. I’m an avid reader and I love exploring this event to see what is coming out based on bands and comic book characters that I enjoy. This year, I learned of a Marvel Comics panel that was happening so I sat down and listened to what some amazing authors had to say.
The assembled scribes included legendary “Goosebumps” creator R.L. Stine, Margaret Stohl, Jason Reynolds and Rainbow Rowell (pictured from left to right). Each of them was working on or had just finished titles featuring Man-Thing, Captain Marvel, Miles Morales: Spider-Man and the Runaways.
Hey my comic book loving friends. It seems that there is a new superhero team coming by way of the all-new “Champions” and the fine folks at Marvel Comics have begun to unveil these Character Posters that feature the team. What I am going to do with this notice is add any of the new images to this single post as the hectic nature of the site right now I cannot devote a single post for each of them. Let’s start with the first one and then I’ll add them in accordingly. Once done I will order them by name for ease of perusal. Enjoy.
Alright, I want to start this month’s first offering with the exclamation that I am so glad that January is over because it was a rough month for music fans. Now with February here I am pretty stoked to be discussing the new comics that are coming out with these first go rounds from Marvel Comics. Some good stuff for sure and a couple of them will get you prepared for some television and big screen presentations. There will be some variant covers to these titles with the continuing “Hip Hop” cover and some will even have a 50th Anniversary Black Panther cover variant but I didn’t have access to those for the purposes of this presentation. Let’s have a look shall we.
SPIDER-MAN #1: Miles Morales has been doing the super hero thing for a while, now, but after SECRET WARS, he’ll be a full-fledged member of the Marvel Universe. Swinging next to The Invincible Iron Man, The Mighty Thor and the All-New Captain America as a card-carrying member of the Avengers is an adventure, but it’s not all fun and games for New York City’s main Spider-MAN! What happened in the eight month gap? It all starts in SPIDER-MAN #1!
