Previews gives us a glimpse of what’s to come. Here’s the spotlight new books (and some trade/hardcovers/omnibuses) coming out of August Previews for Marvel…

Just like last month, let’s just go ahead and get all those Star Wars War of the Bounty Hunters and Tie-Ins out of the way since these are all musts for the most part.

Dive into the legend of the Black Panther in this new origin story by acclaimed author Tochi Onyebuchi and New York Times-bestselling illustrator Setor Fiadzigbey, perfect for middle grade readers! T’Challa and Hunter are brothers growing up in the idyllic royal palace of Wakanda. Theirs goes beyond the usual sibling rivalry, though – Hunter, although older, is adopted, and T’Challa is the true heir to the throne. Both brothers wrestle with fairness and the future, readying themselves for responsibility, when tragedy strikes and takes the choice from them. This new series, ideal for young fans and loyal readers alike, will explore the moments that make T’Challa who he is, from his adventurous upbringing to his walkabout as a teen where he meets the enchanting Ororo Munroe before she becomes the legendary Storm, to when he first invites the Fantastic Four into Wakanda! Son, Brother, Warrior, King – as each chapter unfolds, new pieces of T’Challa’s character will be revealed and the Black Panther will emerge.

REST IN PEACE STEPHEN STRANGE! With the Sorcerer Supreme gone, so too are Earth’s magical defenses! Now the rest of Earth’s heroes have their hands full with multiple invasions from other dimensions. Some are familiar…but some are new… and frightening! Meet the Three Mothers!

The Three Mothers? First appearance? This can likely be a great read if the story is good. We all know Doctor Strange won’t be dead for long.

Dark Ages by Tom Taylor is a new title I’m looking forward to. Previews gives us Dark Ages #2 (of 6).

Dark Ages #2 (of 6) (Hetrick Variant)

It has been years since the age of technology ended in a single moment, like a switch had been flicked to off for an entire planet. Now Earth’s heroes attempt to bring humanity together in the darkness. X-Men and Avengers, vigilantes and villains all work together to create something better. But something darker than the night is descending on the world. Our post-apocalyptic world is about to face Apocalypse.

I’m loving these Alien covers.

Alien #8
Alien #8 (Shavrin Variant)

These covers are already classic for Amazing Fantasy. Kaare Andrews is knocking these out of the ball park.

Amazing Fantasy #4 (of 5)
Amazing Fantasy #4 (of 5) (Andrews Variant)

Amazing Spider-Man gets a new team starting with the big old issue #75. Lots of variants. Maybe things will start to get interesting again since I thought Spencer’s run was just kind of meh for the most part.

Amazing Spider-Man #75
Amazing Spider-Man #75 (Gleason Webhead Variant)
Amazing Spider-Man #75 (Ron Lim Variant)

Amazing Spider-Man #75 (Coello Stormbreakers Variant)

Most of the covers have not been released yet on Previews. Maybe they contain spoilers.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is back to thrice-monthly because this story is pure jet fuel. Ben Reilly has returned to NYC and has fully taken back the mantle of Spider-Man, but what does this mean for Peter Parker? The greatest team of web-writers has come together with the most epic arachnid-artists ever assembled to bring you a Spider-story that will shake up Spider-Man’s 59th year in ways you CANNOT PREDICT!

We should pay attention to anything Ms Marvel I think. She like Miles Morales is kind of the future for Marvel.
