Okay comic book fans, Halloween is OVER and now it’s time to get onto planning for the next holiday which is Thanksgiving despite the fact that all of the Christmas decorations have made their appearance on store shelves everywhere. This month is a banger of a month in terms of the Marvel Comics first issue output. There are more than a dozen new beginnings hitting the racks and while many of them are mini-series, its enough to find you negotiating more hours from your boss or better budgeting if you are one of our regular concert going readers. Let’s take a look at these first go-rounds thanks to Marvel press provisions and please be mindful that many will have variant covers to purchase if such things make your collection better for you. Here we go.

The excitement about “Deadpool” is finally showing some signs of slowing down and the buzz is building to a serious momemtum about the very soon to open “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” film but coming up quick on the energy burst meters is the just released second trailer for Marvel’s next offering in the May opening film “Captain America: Civil War”. Check out the second trailer below and then we can chat a little bit.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: SCREAMS!!!!!!! That’s all I have for this. So great to have the Web-Spinner in the proper Marvel Cinematic Universe at long last. I know you are excited as well, especially after that last Spider-Man film that Sony gave us. Let’s cross our fingers for the most positive of growth of this now very encompassing Marvel Universe. Full steam ahead. May cannot get here soon enough for me.
Wow was that a fun-filled October or what? I’m saying it like that because not only did we have a lot of awesome Metal shows to slam around at but also a ton of super cool comic books to read and of course the latest edition of NY Comic Con which I know so many of our regional readers had assembled at in force. So here we are now in November and we will be getting “27” new series from Marvel Comics which amounts to almost a new title per day of the month if you wanted to get playful with math. For the sake of shopping and my own sanity I have marked down all of the new series coming out this month from Marvel Comics and they are listed alphabetically for easy visual digestion. Some will hit the stands this coming week and the rest as the month progresses. As usual the cover art and premise/creative team comes from the publicity team over at Marvel and then I’ll be chiming in. Better start requesting a couple of extra shifts at work to cover this amount of monthly titles because there are just so darned many to choose from. I suggest you keep a pencil and paper near you as you make your way through this massive grouping. Here we go.
All-New, All-Different Avengers #1-2: The Avengers are dead–long live the Avengers! Earth’s Mightiest Heroes–Captain America, Thor, Vision, and Iron Man–are living separate lives, not tied to any team–but when a threat from beyond the stars targets our world, fate draws them together once more, alongside Nova, Ms. Marvel, and Miles Morales a.k.a. Spider-Man!
Dun da da dah!!!!!!! The moment has finally arrived Marvel Comics fans for today is the day that “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” openers in theaters everywhere. The world around them has changed since the events of New York back in 2012 Check out the poster and the quick premise below and then we can talk about it a little bit.
Premise:In Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Avengers must work together to defeat Ultron, a technological enemy bent on human extinction. – That’s pretty much all we need to describe the goings on in this film since the trailers have shown it to be loaded with action and super heroic feats. That is all I need at least. Check out the main cast for this one. Continue reading Opening Today: “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” (5/1/2015)→
Alright so its been a few months since they let out the information that “Avengers 2” was going to actually be called “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” and pit our illustrious band of heroes against – dun – dun – dun…..Ultron! That in and of itself was pretty cool even though I think I really wanted to see them duke it out against Thanos. The world’s angriest robot sure is a good villain choice based on all his scuttles with The Avengers in the comics.
