Previews gives us a glimpse of what’s to come. Here’s the spotlight new books (and some trade/hardcovers/omnibuses) coming out of October Previews for Marvel…
Like the previous months, let’s just go ahead and get all those Star Wars out of the way since these are all musts for the most part.
Star Wars High Republic Trail of Shadows #3:
Star Wars High Republic Trail Shadows #3 (of 5)
Star Wars High Republic Trail Shadows #3 (of 5) (Artist a Variant)
Avengers #51 looks like a great jumping on point with new story arc after the big #750 legacy numbered issue.
Black Panther #2 Cover B Variant Kael Ngu Villains Reign Cover is just a pretty kick ass cover. I don’t normally chase themed variants but I’m making an exception for this one.
Death of Doctor Strange #4 (of 5) continues. Loving these Kaare Andrews covers.
Demon Days Rising Storm #1 have been a total surprise. I doubted Peach Momoko’s writing initially but these have been entertaining. I don’t think these should be ignored. Marvel tapping into this style of books is going to likely grab the attention from the Manga readers and such if they haven’t already done so.
Oh my, a John Romita Jr. cover that I don’t dislike. Probably his best work in quite some time if you ask me for Elektra Black White Blood #1 (of 4).
Hawkeye Kate Bishop #2 (of 5) (Hans Variant) – Could be a nice spec play as well.. Hans cover art normally never disappoints.
Kang the Conqueror #5 (of 5) ends this mini-series with a pretty cool Del Mundo cover. I don’t think this is the last of seeing Kang though. I think Marvel has big plans for this character now that Thanos is out of the picture.
Trust me, this is not the final layout of this awesome looking cover for Phoenix Song Echo #3 (of 5) (Bachalo Variant). We’ll get a bigger title dressing and then of course everything else Marvel slaps on their issues. I’m buying for the cover art alone, love it. The hand print outline on the moon has me intrigued as well.
Miles Morales Spider-Man #33 conflicts me. Miles is the future for Marvel’s Spider-Man but come on, that new outfit just looks awful. This cover does the suit zero justice.
Moon Knight #6 is a must, since I’m a huge fan so it’s also a my bias highlight pick.
Timeless #1. See, told you Kang wouldn’t be gone long. Okay okay, it’s a one-shot and it’s still coming out around the same time his mini is ending but still, expect more Kang I think. Plus, not often do you see so many variants for a one-shot.
Timeless #1 (Carnero Stormbreakers Variant)
Timeless #1 (Cabal Stormbreakers Variant)
Timeless #1 (Bustos Stormbreakers Variant)
Timeless #1 (Silva Stormbreakers Variant)
Timeless #1 (Momoko Stormbreakers Variant)
Timeless #1 (Gleason Stormbreakers Variant)
Timeless #1 (TBD Artist Miss Minutes Variant)
Remember when Thor was all the rage with Black Winter last year? Well, like a lot of titles, they got ups and downs. I’m hoping we’re being led into some more interesting things for Thor so I’ve got each of these issues still on my radar. Thor #20 makes the highlight picks for this reason. Any issue or pane, a Cates surprise can wreak havoc on the secondary market.
Speaking of Cates, his new Hulk series has the next issue up in previews.
I’m not super huge on event books most days but Chip is a very underrated writer I think. I’m totally looking forward to Devils Reign #1 (of 6). It’s going to be good and if it’s not, well, we riot!
Like Miles, Kamala is the future for Marvel. It’s probably just a good idea to pick up her stuff, all of it.
Ms Marvel Beyond the Limit #1 (of 5)
Ms Marvel Beyond the Limit #1 (of 5) (Momoko Stormbreakers Variant)
Ms Marvel Beyond the Limit #1 (of 5) (Miles Morales 10th Anniversary Variant)
Ms Marvel Beyond the Limit #1 (of 5) (Young Variant)
No better way in owning the hard to find classics than with the facsimile editions. Conan the Barbarian #1 Facsimile Edition brings back a lot of memories of me reading all of my brothers Conan books (I didn’t have to buy them since I’d just read his).
Missed all the individual issues, Kang the Conqueror TPB Only Myself Left to Conquer is another great way to catch up on your reading of this recent series.
And because it’s Moon Girl, Marvel-Verse GN TPB Moon Girl is hitting shelves soon enough. Might be a worthy pickup for the read and for displaying on the shelf. Moon Girl brings some secondary market love for her hard to find issues.
