MARVEL REVEALS EVERY COMIC BEING RELEASED AFTER CIVIL WAR II

MARVEL REVEALS EVERY COMIC BEING RELEASED AFTER CIVIL WAR II
A lot of big changes are coming to the Marvel comics universe in the aftermath of their enormous Civil War II crossover. With their fall relaunch coming in the fall, titled Marvel NOW, the company has decided that it’s probably time to let us know what new comics they have down the pipeline, as well as titles that are relaunching and continuing. With a Marvel Preview catalogue, we get a few glimpses at all of the changes in the Marvel universe. Solo launches like Jessica Jones (which we’ve mentioned earlier), Cage!, Kingpin, andIron Fist (with Daredevil continuing) show that the Netflix series certainly have a healthy enough viewership to justify putting down a lot of their new series in support of the characters, while Rocket Raccoon, Star-Lord and Gamora launches indicate to us how successful Guardians of the Galaxy has been beyond movie ticket sales (virtually supplanting the canceled Fantastic Four, which Marvel squashed after attempts to get the movie rights back from Fox proved unsuccessful). Also interesting is a solo series for Thanos, the universe’s biggest villain and seeker of the Infinity Gauntlet. It’s not surprising to see Thanos getting more page space in Marvel’s comics, but to get his own series shows how committed Marvel is to planting him as a true villain that audiences will remember. (And let’s be honest, the Marvel Cinematic Universe isn’t known for its interesting villains. Right now, they’ve got Loki, and that’s pretty much it.) What’s interesting in the Marvel Preview, which some believe isn’t complete, is that there are no continuing X-Men series listed here, and only Death of X listed as a new title in the universe. Is that Marvel’s not-so-subtle way of strongarming Fox to play ball a little more with the properties they have the movie rights to? Especially after seeing how they’re working closer together, that seems like a surprise. At any rate, we’ve got a lot of new comics to look forward to as Marvel Comics takes to the next phase of their venerated universe. The next phase of the Marvel Universe sure looks to be an exciting one.
