All New Marvel NOW Point One #1
-Ignore the goofy discrepancy of “Point One #1” and instead focus on the promising refresh of Marvel content present in this oversized issue!
-Like they did with Marvel NOW, this Point One issue is the easiest way to sample a handful of these new series without simply getting reprints of the first issue. This oversized issue will contain entirely original content, content that will act as a prequel to the first issue of each represented character.
-The books that will be represented in this one shot include Dan Slott’s Silver Surfer, Al Ewing’s Loki: Agent of Asgard, Ms. Marvel, All-New Invaders, and two books that release on the same day, Black Widow and Avengers World.
-Each story featured within this issue will be drawn and written by the creators of their respected series, meaning quality shorts with no filler.
Avengers World #1
-Jonathan Hickman completes his trilogy of Avengers books with this third ongoing series.
-Stefano Caselli, a regular contributing artist to Hickman’s main Avengers book, returns to the characters as the main artist for this series.
-Hickman will separate this book from his other Avengers series by focusing on stand-alone arcs, not bogged down by Marvel Universe continuity or events.
-If you loved the space opera that was Infinity, then Hickman promises the same grand action and adventure in Avengers World.
Black Widow #1
-Character-centric is the name of the game for the All New Marvel NOW refresh, and Black Widow #1 is the epitome of that focus.
-Nathan Edmondson (Grifter, Who is Jake Ellis, Dancer), who helms the series, has made a reputation around writing smart, well researched espionage series, a talent which will benefit Widow’s secret agent agenda.
-Illustrated in Phil Noto’s gorgeous painterly style, Black Widow #1 emphasizes the grace and fluidity of Natasha’s acrobatics and abilities.
-Romanov is running solo in this series, freed from her Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D. duties, as she searches for redemption from her past as a KGB assassin.
Detective Comics #27
-Superman‘s 75th year is over, now it’s The Dark Knight’s turn!
-DC Comics begins celebrating Batman‘s 75 years of existence with a bang in this extra long anniversary issue that shares its title and numbering with Batman‘s first appearance.
-In honor of the occasion, DC has pulled together an all-star cast of creators to contribute work, including Scott Snyder, Gregg Hurwitz, Guillem March, John Layman, Frank Miller, Mike Allred, Sean Murphy, Francesco Francavilla, and more!
