PREVIEW: Blink Meets the Ms. Marvel of the Future in Exiles #1 First Look

PREVIEW: Blink Meets the Ms. Marvel of the Future in Exiles #1 First Look

The first look at Exiles #1 reveals one very important piece of information: Don’t call the Kamala Khan of the future “Ms. Marvel.”

Writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Javier Rodriguez re-introduce the X-Man known as Blink to the Marvel Universe (and readers) by introducing her to Khan, an older version of the currently young member of The Champions. The former Ms. Marvel has obviously seen her share of hard times, as she’s apparently leading a band of rebels in a post-apocalyptic future when Blink stumbles across her. And while we already know the pair will eventually team up to save the Marvel Multiverse, they’re getting off to a rather rocky start.

RELATED: Exiles Writer Explains the Team’s Cartoony Baby Wolverine

Exiles is my take on a classic Marvel ‘misfit’ team book, powered by the endless possibilities of alternate timeline craziness,” Ahmed said in a statement. “Sort of What If? meets classic X-Men, with a bit of Quantum Leap tossed in for good measure. It’s a dream of a book to be working on for a Marvel fanboy such as myself, full of deep-cut guest stars and mind-blowing easter eggs. But it’s also the human story of a group of misfits coming together, learning to trust each other, and, if they’re lucky, saving the world(s).”

Exiles #1, by Saladin Ahmed and Javier Rodriguez, arrives in stores April 11, 2018. Check out the preview below.

EXCLUSIVE: Tony Stark: Iron Man Welcomes Back Two Missing Marvel Heroes

EXCLUSIVE: Tony Stark: Iron Man Welcomes Back Two Missing Marvel Heroes

In addition to featuring hundreds of different armors, and a the return of Tony Stark as the one true Iron Man, writer Dan Slott and artist Valerio Schiti will be expanding the supporting cast of the titular hero.

Not only will the pages of Tony Stark: Iron Man be populated with new characters, at least two familiar faces will factor into Slott and Schiti’s plans: Jocasta and Bethany Cabe. And while Slott didn’t discuss them with CBR in our latest interview, Marvel has provided us with a few of Schiti’s character designs which reveal that the pair will play a role in Tony Stark’s “fresh start” era.

RELATED: Valerio Schiti’s Concept Art for Nine New Iron Man Armors

Jocasta was introduced in 1963, created by Ultron (by way of Jim Shooter and George Perez) to be his bride. She quickly turned on her would-be husband, opting to value human life rather than destroy it, and became a fan-favorite member of the Avengers. She was last a regular player in the Marvel Universe in the pages of 2014’s Avengers: A.I., where she played a role in the short-lived series’ final issues, having traded her robotic body for an existence as an A.I. — a development that will be undone in the new series, as evidenced by Schiti’s character designs. Prior to that, she was one of the teachers at Avengers Academy before that comic was canceled in 2013. She has appeared in several titles since then, though in smaller roles and flashbacks.

EXCLUSIVE: Valerio Schiti concept art for Tony Stark: Iron Man

Bethany Cabe, however, has been absent from the Marvel Universe for a longer period of time. First introduced in 1968 and created by Bob Layton, David Michelinie and John Romita Sr., Cabe was introduced as a love interest for Tony Stark, and while this was certainly true, she was also an accomplished fighter and bodyguard. She and Tony were an on-again, off-again couple for decades, wth the pair eventually settling on a platonic relationship which left her as the head of secrurity for Stark Enterprises. Her appearance in Tony Stark: Iron Man will be the first she’s been seen in mainstream Marvel continuity since the release of Invincible Iron Man #527 in 2012

Tony Stark: Iron Man is expected to arrive in June 2018 from the creative team of Dan Slott and Valerio Schiti, with covers by Alexander Lozano.

Slott & Schiti’s Iron Man ‘Fresh Start’ Will Build on Continuity, Not Reboot It

Slott & Schiti’s Iron Man ‘Fresh Start’ Will Build on Continuity, Not Reboot It

Artist Valerio Schiti will join writer Dan Slott for Marvel’s new Iron Man comic. the series, titled Tony Stark: Iron Man. But while the armored Avengers is getting an all-new #1 for his part in the publisher’s “Fresh Start” initiative, Slott and Schiti assure fans the title will build on the hero’s long continuity, not reboot it.

“Everything counts,” Slott assured fans in an interview with Nerdist. “We’re going to play fair with all that’s happened to Tony from the very beginning all the way through to the most current runs… ALL the continuity counts. The legacy counts. But if you’re one of the billions of people on this Earth who only knows Iron Man from the movies, you can jump on right here for a fresh start.”

RELATED: Dan Slott Leaving Amazing Spider-Man, Will Write Iron Man’s New Series

Of course, a new Iron Man comic has to come with new Iron Man armor, and Slott & Schiti plan to give fans exactly that — and then some. The book will actually feature hundreds of new armors for the founding Avenger, a challenge Schiti told Nerdist he’s more than up for — he’s looking forward to it. To me this is heaven. To do new designs is one of my favorite things in comics, and here I have the chance to play with such an iconic character, to try different styles, to use classic suits, and to create new and extraordinary armors.”

RELATED: Marvel’s Fresh Start: Who’s Who & What to Expect from the New Initiative

While Slott and Schiti aim to keep the character and his adventures accessible to new readers, particularly those who may have come to the world of Marvel Comics only after discovering the Marvel Cinematic Universe, longtime Iron Man fans should be pleased by the comic’s reverence for the character’s history. Slott promises the book will explore “new depths [and] new problems that make him somehow ironically similar to the Bronze Age version of himself,” while Schiti says the character will also exude the charm of Robert Downey Jr.’s take by being “funny, charming and cool.”

Tony Stark: Iron Man is expected to arrive in June 2018 from the creative team of Dan Slott and Valerio Schiti, with covers by Alexander Lozano.

DC Comics, Neil Gaiman Announce The Sandman Universe Imprint

DC Comics, Neil Gaiman Announce The Sandman Universe Imprint

DC Comics and Neil Gaiman will celebrate 30 years of the Dreaming when they Vertigo launches The Sandman Universe in late-2018, a line of four different comics based on the writer’s critically and fan acclaimed Sandman series.

The imprint, announced via Entertainment Weekly, will include new incarnations of The Dreaming, Lucifer and Books of Magic, along with new series The House of Whispers. It will kick off with a special Sandman Universe one-shot by Gaiman, Nalo Hopkinson, Kat Howard, Si Spurrier and Dan Watters, featuring art by Bilquis Everly and a Jae Lee cover. The four writers will each script one of the subsequently launching comics. None of the series’ artists were revealed in the announcement.

RELATED: The Sandman Just Explained the Entire DC Multiverse in Dark Nights: Metal

“[The Sandman universe is] a huge sandbox with so many wonderful toys that nobody’s getting to play with right now,” Gamin said, explaining why he has returned to Dream’s reality once more. “I started feeling guilty. I liked the idea of getting the toys played with again, reminding people how much fun this is, and also getting the opportunity to work with some fantastic writers. Down the line, there will be fantastic artists as well.

“For this stuff, it’s really the joy of looking back at the history of Vertigo,” the writer continued. “There’s always stuff I created in the Vertigo world, that spun off and went out into the world and did really well. But the natural life cycle of these things is it came, it went away. Let’s bring it all back, let’s have fun with it. So for me, the joy is just sitting with smart writers who love the material and saying, ‘Let’s go play.'”

Books of Magic #1

Nalo Hopkinson writes House of Whispers, which features a cover by Yanick Paquette. Hopkinson was hand-picked by Gaiman, who told EW, “if we’re gonna do House of Whispers, if we’re going to do Erzulie and have all this voodoo lore stuff, then I want Nalo to do it because there isn’t anybody better.” The series’ will explore the mystery of the tutelar house’s appearance alongside the House of Mystery and House of Secrets.

Books of Magic, which will feature the new adventures of Tim Hunter, will be scripted by Cat Howard. “She has the touch, she understands the magic,” Gamain promises.

Assuring fans he understands that previous creators have left an indelible stamp on Lucifer, Gamin assures Dan Watters is more than up to the task of scripting the next chapter in the life of comic book readers’ favorite fallen angel. “Dan is smart and deep, and he gets it,” Gaiman said. “He’s up to the challenge of ‘Okay, can you recreate this thing?'”

Finally, Si Spurrier will take readers back to The Dreaming. The new series will once again be set in the Sandman’s kingdom. Of course, it will feature the return of fan-favorite supporting characters like Mervyn Pumpkinhead, Lucien the librarian and Matthew the Raven as they attempt to keep things running in the absence of their ruler, Dream.

Justice League: No Justice Solicitations Share New Story Details

Justice League: No Justice Solicitations Share New Story Details

While we’ve known for weeks that the future of DC Comics’ Justice league franchise lies in the hands of Scott Snyder and Francis Manapul, specific story details have been kept relatively under wraps. Aside from knowing that Brainiac is involved, and that the League will split into some very odd sub-teams, details about Snyder and Manapul’s plans have been scarce.

Revealed today as part of the publisher’s solicitations for comics shipping in May 2018, descriptions for all four issues of Justice League: No Justice fills in some blanks. We no know that the teams have been chosen to battle specific cosmic entities — Mystery, Wonder, Wisdom and Entropy — who have their sights set on Brainiac’s home planet of Colu. Along the way, the teams will experience aspects of the DC Universe they never knew existed, make some new allies and, of course, experience some level of betrayal.

PREVIEW: Avengers #1’s Starbrand Looks An Awful Lot Like A Hulk

PREVIEW: Avengers #1’s Starbrand Looks An Awful Lot Like A Hulk

When Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness launch Marvel Comics’ new Avengers series in May, the comic will actually tell the story of two teams.

The first, and likely more prominent team will be a new line-up that sees Captain America, Thor and Iron Man joined by Black Panther, She-Hulk, Ghost Rider, Captain Marvel and Doctor Strange. However, there’s a solid contingent of fans who may be just as excited for the series due to its secondary team: the Avengers of 1,000,000 B.C.

RELATED: Marvel’s Fresh Start: Who’s Who & What to Expect from the New Initiative

Both teams feature in the first look at the new series, (debuting via IGN), and while much of the prehistoric Avengers team closely resembles Esad Ribic’s depiction in the Marvel Legacy one-shot, we noticed that the original Starbrand looks less caveman and more Hulk. A coincidence? Perhaps — but it would be a nice nod to the founding team of modern day Avengers to learn that one of their forefathers shares some incredible similarities with Bruce Banner’s gamma-fueled alter ego.

Check out the preview pages below, and stay tuned to CBR for more on Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness’ Avengers #1, as well as the rest of Marvel’s “Fresh Start” announcement, in the days ahead.

Marvel’s 2018 ‘Fresh Start’ Includes a New Avengers #1 By Aaron & McGuinness

Marvel’s 2018 ‘Fresh Start’ Includes a New Avengers #1 By Aaron & McGuinness

Hot on the heels of the news that Marvel Comics will be revamping its entire publishing line in 2018 comes word that Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness will be rebooting Avengers with an all-new #1.

Announced via IGN, the new Avengers series will arrive in May, kicking off the entire publishing line’s “fresh start,” as Marvel has dubbed the initiative.

The series will be Marvel’s sole Avengers title moving forward, though it will release 18 issue per year rather than 12. While this may be disappointing for fans hoping for the returns of New Avengers, Uncanny Avengers and Occupy Avengers once Marvel’s current weekly Avengers event “No Surrender” concludes, Aaron promises he and McGuinness aim to deliver as story readers will be happy with.

RELATED: Marvel Comics Announces a Line-Wide Overhaul in 2018

“My aim with this series is basically, if you only read one Marvel comic — not that you should read just one Marvel comic, but if you did — if you picked this book up, this would show you the landscape of the Marvel universe issue after issue,” Arron told IGN of the new title. “We want to feature the biggest characters and go to the coolest, most exotic locations around the Marvel U.”

In addition to Marvel’s “big three” Avengers — Captain America, Iron Man and the Odinson incarnation of Thor — the team will include Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange (who’s role will be as a part-timer) and a massive She-Hulk. Perhaps most interestingly, though, is the inclusion of the Robby Reyes incarnation of Ghost Rider on the roster.

“Robbie Reyes is sort of the new kid on the block, he doesn’t really know any of these other characters, they don’t know him,” Aaron explains of the young hero’s place on the team. “They know the Ghost Rider, but this is a Ghost Rider not quite like anyone they’ve ever met before.”

Aaron and McGuinness’ plans not only include this version of the team, but also the popular stars of last year’s massive Marvel Legacy one-shot: the Avengers of 1,000,000 B.C. The writer plans to take a page from his years writing Thor’s various comics and spin a tale that takes place throughout all of Marvel history, entwining the present incarnation’s team’s adventures with the previously untold tales of the original Avengers.

Avengers #1, by Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness, arrives in May 2018 from Marvel Comics.

Marvel Comics Announces a Line-Wide Overhaul in 2018

Marvel Comics has announced plans to revitalize its entire publishing line in 2018, promising new creative teams, new series and more.

The publisher has released a piece of promo art by Jim Cheung, along with a video hosted by current Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski, promising a new direction for the Marvel Universe in the coming year.

“I can say, walking through these halls, I have never seem more enthusiasm and more excitement for where Marvel Comics is going this year, Cebulski effuses in the video. “Not since Marvel NOW! have we have we had such an ver-arching, line wide change of talent on the Marvel Comics line.”

RELATED: Bendis Has Written His Final Miles Morales Spider-Man Story

While the video stops short of detailing any specifics, there are a few things that indicate at least some of Marvel’s plans. First, the prominence given the various characters co-created by Brian Michael Bendis, who signed an exclusive deal with DC Comics in late-2107, indicate that as promised, Miles Morales and Jessica Jones will remain a major part of the Marvel Universe following Bendis’ departure.

We also see the return of the original, male Thor to the lineup of heroes, apparently no longer “unworthy,” and in possession of of a new hammer, perhaps indicating the possibility that Jane Foster may continue to bear the Thor mantle as well. The video places an obvious emphasis on Ant-Man and the Wasp, indicating that the publisher will likely be attempting to increase the prominence of the character as their sequel heads to theaters this summer.

Check out Cheung’s art below, and check back later for more on Marvel’s plans for 2018 and beyond.
