Avengers Assemble × Jason Aaron

THE MIGHTIEST HEROES FROM ALL OF TIME AND SPACE GATHER TO FACE THE END OF ALL THAT IS IN THE AVENGERS ASSEMBLE TRAILER!

Jason Aaron brings his Avengers era to an end with the biggest Avengers story of all time starring, starting with AVENGERS ASSEMBLE ALPHA #1 on November 30. See the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ upcoming battle against an incredible legion of villains led by MEPHISTO in the shocking new trailer!

The greatest army of heroes ever assembled go to war against the deadliest group of villains who’ve ever lived in an epic story so monumental it can only come from the mind of super hero visionary Jason Aaron! AVENGERS ASSEMBLE will close out Aaron’s nearly five-year run on Avengers with a breathtaking crossover between Aaron’s two current Avengers titles, Avengers and Avengers Forever. The saga will officially kick off in next month’s AVENGERS ASSEMBLE ALPHA #1 where Aaron will be joined by superstar artist Bryan Hitch, and fans will witness the start of a conflict beyond all imagination—a grand battle that stretches from the dawn of time when Earth was protected by the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC to the twilight of all reality and everything in between!

At Infinity’s End stands Avengers Tower, and it’s fallen under assault by the ultimate forces of evil including the Multiversal Masters of Evil and Mephisto. The Avengers fans know and love will unite with heroes from the past, future, and far reaches of the multiverse to defend Avengers Tower and the fate of Marvel history as we know it. Can they work together? And will their power be enough to prevent the end of all that is? Fans can get their first glimpse at this awe-inspiring showdown as well as some of the characters who will be fighting on the frontlines of it in the new AVENGERS ASSEMBLE trailer, featuring never-before-seen artwork!

“Four years of Avengers stories. Threads from really every major series I’ve worked on throughout my last decade and a half at Marvel, from Ghost Rider to Thor. It all leads to this. The biggest Avengers story I could possibly imagine,” Aaron said. “Featuring a cavalcade of characters from across creation. And I’m so deeply thrilled and honored that it all kicks off with an oversized ALPHA issue that’s being drawn by the legendary Bryan Hitch, who I’m getting to work with here for the very first time. Avengers Assemble. Say the words like a prayer. It’s the only thing that can save you.”

Poster of WASP via Marvel Entertainment for use by 360 Magazine

JANET VAN DYNE IN WASP COMIC

Since the very dawn of the Marvel super hero age, Janet Van Dyne has enchanted comic book fans as the founding Avenger known as the Wasp! Now, after 60 years of being a super hero and fashion icon, the character will headline a new four-issue limited series!

Arriving in January, WASP will be written by superstar Marvel mastermind Al Ewing and drawn by Kasia Nie, known for her acclaimed work on titles like Mockingbird and Age of Conan: Belit. Like Ewing’s hit Ant-Man series currently on stands, WASP will pay tribute to Janet’s incredible legacy by shedding new light on her wild Silver Age origin, spotlighting her relationship with protégé Nadia Van Dyne, and paving the way for a bright future! The saga will also directly lead into another Ewing-penned series launching in the new year!

After countless Avengers missions, earth-shattering battles, and fabulous costumes, Janet Van Dyne is ready to start a new chapter in her legendary super hero career! But as she sets out to change up her role within Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, a villain from her past rises out of the shadows to ruin all she’s worked for. Joined by Nadia Van Dyne, Janet and Nadia team up against a dangerous new organization with shocking connections to both their histories. As the threat grows more urgent, Janet and Nadia will face a test so great that they may become the very thing they fear most…

“The Ant-Man series was a whole lot of fun and gave me a new appreciation for Janet Van Dyne and her world – and when I went digging into her past, there was a whole story there just waiting to be unearthed,” Ewing explained. “If you weren’t a fan of the Wondrous Wasp before – not to mention her adopted daughter Nadia Van Dyne – you will be when we’re done!”

“I’m super excited to work with Al and rest of the team on this anniversary tribute to Wasp,” Nie added. “I love Janet, she’s one of my favorite Marvel characters—a mature person with an uneasy past, a successful woman and the best mom to Nadia. She’s unstoppable.”

Check out two of Tom Reilly’s main covers for the series, following the same bold design as his beloved covers for the Ant-Man series, and get swept away in Janet Van Dyne’s new era when WASP #1 arrives in January! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

Writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Marco Checchetto’s Eisner-nominated DAREDEVIL run continued with a radical new saga that will explore both Matt Murdock and Elektra Natchios’ journeys as DAREDEVIL. Hitting stands yesterday, DAREDEVIL #1 was an extraordinary debut issue that welcomed readers to the darkest Hell’s Kitchen era to date. And next month, the most legendary artists from throughout Daredevil history will join Zdarsky and Checchetto in DAREDEVIL #2 for a giant-sized celebration to mark the milestone 650th issue of DAREDEVIL including Rafael DeLatorre, Alex Maleev, Paul Azaceta, Phil Noto, Chris Samnee, Klaus Janson, and Mike Hawthorne.

In the aftermath of DEVIL’S REIGN, everything it has ever meant to be Daredevil has changed. Thanks to Elektra and her newfound role as the Woman Without Fear, Daredevil is more ambitious than EVER. With a who’s-who of creators from across the fabled character’s history (and some can’t-miss surprises along the way), this oversized epic will kick off the next year of Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto’s landmark run on DAREDEVIL off in explosive style!

“It’s not often that a comic gets to issue two these days , so … oh wait, it’s issue 650?! Well in that case I’m over the moon that we get to celebrate with so many legendary Daredevil creators!” Zdarsky said. “Daredevil is a title that has had so many amazing runs that it wouldn’t feel right to have an anniversary issue without inviting the people who made the book so special for so many years.”

Stay tuned this week for more news about the 650th issue of DAREDEVIL, including which other legendary Daredevil creators will be making their return! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

MIRACLEMAN: THE SILVER AGE

The wait is over! Just in time for the 40th anniversary of Miracleman’s modern era, Marvel Comics is thrilled to announce that Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham’s groundbreaking MIRACLEMAN: THE SILVER AGE SAGA will return this October! The two visionary comic talents will complete their unfinished MIRACLEMAN storyline “The Silver Age,” including remastered editions of the first two published issues, complete with new artwork and bonus material.

After 30 years, fans will finally see the full incredible story of Young Miracleman with more to come!

Young Miracleman — the lost member of the Miracleman Family — is back! His last memories were of a 1963 world of joy and innocence. Now, he’s been thrust into the 21st century, where his best friends have become gods and monsters. Where can a hero from a simpler time call home in this brave new world?

“We’re back! And after thirty years away it is both thrilling and terrifying,” Buckingham said. “Neil and I have had these stories in our heads since 1989 so it is amazing to finally be on the verge of sharing them with our readers.

“I have pushed myself to my limit to craft something special for these issues. Cinematic in approach, clean and elegant, drawing on the best of my own style but also paying homage to the exceptional talents of all who came before us, whose unique visions have shaped this ground-breaking series over forty years, and the 1950’s Marvelman foundations on which it was built.”

It’s the story the comic book industry has waited decades for! Don’t miss this historic moment when MIRACLEMAN BY GAIMAN & BUCKINGHAM: THE SILVER AGE #1 arrives at long last this October! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

A.X.E.: JUDGEMENT DAY is coming promo graphic via Marvel Entertainment for use by 360 MAGAZINE

Judgement Day is Coming

Next month, Krakoa braces itself for war when mutantkind is targeted by the Eternals! Do the Avengers stand a chance at preventing an apocalyptic conflict from erupting across the Marvel Universe? Find out in A.X.E.: JUDGMENT DAY, the latest Marvel Comics crossover event launching this summer. Written by Kieron Gillen and drawn by Valerio Schiti, the epic saga will deliver thrilling payoffs to recent events in AVENGERS, X-MEN, and ETERNALS titles. Fans got their first glimpse in this year’s FREE COMIC BOOK DAY: JUDGMENT DAY and can get the full scope of the Eternals’ destructive plan in A.X.E.: EVE OF JUDGMENT, a special prelude issue by Gillen and Pasqual Ferry.

Eternals know that the mutants have conquered death. But what are they going to do about it? The oldest immortals on Earth size up the newest, and the doomsday clock starts to tick toward Judgment Day…

“The Eternals are the aggressors here,” Gillen explained to Popverse in a recent interview. “This is the Eternals about to go to war. You get to see the prime Eternals building their armories, working out how they’re going to kill people, various plans and kidnappings, and the good Eternals perhaps being a bit more lost. It’s preparation for war. That’s what it is. I think that’s the best way of describing it, as well as being also a really good restatement of what’s going on in the Eternals. Because if you haven’t read issues one to 12, this is like, ‘OK, I don’t know anything about Eternals. I don’t know, why would [they] be going to war? Who are they even?’ It’s that as well. This is the preparation of the war happening and everything you need to know going in.”

Check out a teaser from the issue below and witness the opening moves of A.X.E.: JUDGMENT DAY when A.X.E.: EVE OF JUDGMENT arrives on July 13. For more information, visit HERE.

Retailers, don’t forget to order your copies of A.X.E.: EVE OF JUDGMENT #1 by Monday, June 13!

Alien 2022 via Anthony Blackwood for Marvel Comics for use by 360 Magazine

Alien #1

This August, writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson will continue his bold contributions to the world of ALIEN in an all-new comic series! Featuring the incredible and terrifying artwork of rising star Julius Ohta, “ALIEN #1” will kick off a new saga that will serve as a perfect entrypoint into the legendary horror/science-fiction franchise for newcomers and a must-read for longtime fans. Packed with thrilling revelations and fresh insights into the ALIEN mythos, this new chapter promises to further explore the hard-hitting themes Johnson presented in the title’s first era as a new cast of characters must go deep into Xenomorph territory for a chance to combat human extinction.

A small colony of synths have settled in secret on a backwater moon. When a company of United System soldiers come to them for help retrieving biotechnology on a hostile planet that could be the key to saving humanity, the synths must decide whether the prospect of peace between man and machine is worth the risk of betrayal.

“Writing season one of Marvel’s Alien was a horror fanboy’s dream come true,” Johnson said. “We got to tell exactly the story we wanted to tell, bringing horrific new species of Xenomorph to life while also exploring the themes of family and corporate distrust that are such a crucial part of the films. And as much as I loved our season one, we’re outdoing it in every way in the new series.

“Julius Ohta is exceeding all expectations as series artist. Every background, every facial expression and emotion, and of course, all the environmental creepiness and full-on body horror is lovingly rendered by Julius, who is at the absolute TOP of his game right now. I can’t say enough great things about him. Fans are going to be truly spoiled. Stay tuned for one of the best, most beautiful Alien comics ever made.”

“When I got the invite to draw the new Alien series, I had a professional and standard reaction—I was glad to be invited and I was determined to make it the best work of my life. But then, a few minutes later, it came all at once—I understood that I was going to draw Alien… THE ALIEN. I freaked out (in a very good way) and then I knew the tremendous responsibility that is to be in this franchise,” Ohta added. “Even though there’s a huge responsibility to bring the series to life, I couldn’t expect a better welcome from the creative team. It’s been fantastic to work with Phillip, Sarah [Brunstad] and everyone involved. Phillip is a genius and… a gentleman and is always looking for something to make the story better. When I started reading the script, I couldn’t stop until I reached the last page. I could talk about it forever… Sarah is such a kind editor and it’s been a dream to work with these guys!”The Alien franchise influenced an entire generation and I’m among the people who were hugely influenced by the movies, designs, games and so much more. I hope readers enjoy the series we are bringing to them.”
