DOCTOR STRANGE #1

THE MASTER OF THE MYSTIC ARTS RETURNS TO RESHAPE YOUR REALITY IN NEW DOCTOR STRANGE SERIES!

Jed MacKay and Pasqual Ferry launch a new DOCTOR STRANGE ongoing series this March

Jed MacKay’s acclaimed work on the Doctor Strange mythos has captivated readers over the past year, and this March, a thrilling new chapter begins. Spinning out of the character’s terrifying demise in Death of Doctor Strange and Clea’s time as Sorcerer Supreme in Strange comes an all-new ongoing series for Stephen Strange where he’ll resume his duties as Marvel’s Master of the Mystic Arts!

This time around, MacKay will be joined by superstar artist Pasqual Ferry, known for his stylish work on recent titles like Namor: Conquered Shores and Spider-Man: Spider’s Shadow. These two talents have devised a grand plan for Doctor Strange centered around a shocking mystery that strikes at the very heart of Strange’s legacy and purpose. The journey that follows will harken back to the iconic hero’s psychedelic and otherworldly storytelling, taking readers to places only Strange would dare to go and introducing enemies only he could hope to defeat, including a brand-new threat that Strange shares a personal connection with. In honor of this new saga, Doctor Strange will be donning a revamped costume designed by the legendary Alex Ross, who will also be gracing the series with breathtaking covers! 

Stephen Strange is back! Reunited with Clea and Wong, it’s back to business as usual for the Sorcerer Supreme. Have your children fallen into a deep nightmarish slumber? Are demonic refugees invading your home? Is your husband possessed by a satanic entity? Then call Doctor Strange! But when someone else begins to issue their own dark justice on Strange’s mightiest foes, Strange embarks on an interdimensional search for answers, only to discover the culprit may be closer to home than he thinks…

“After Death of Doctor Strange, after Strange, we open the next act in our ongoing saga of the Sorcerer Supreme in DOCTOR STRANGE #1!” MacKay proclaimed. “It’s been really exciting to have the opportunity to not only continue exploring the magical side of the Marvel Universe with the inhabitants of 177A Bleecker Street, but to follow the lives of the Stranges as the last year and a half has put them through the wringer. Pasqual has been putting together a truly magical book, and I’m super psyched to show people what’s in store for Stephen and Clea Strange- and of course, we won’t be giving them any time off after recent events…”

“When I started working for Marvel, there were three comics I had always wanted to draw:Fantastic FourSpider-Man, and Doctor Strange,” Ferry said. “Why Doctor Strange? Because his stories include all the elements I love as an artist—the fantasy, science fiction, and imagination. Above all, the fact that I could look at Steve Ditko’s work as a reference really motivates me! When he drew Doctor Strange, all the utopian and imaginary sceneries were incredible. So this is a very special moment in my career, and I’m looking forward to seeing where the character is going to take us with this new narrative. I know a lot of artists, including myself, consider Doctor Strange a challenge, like there is a need to add something new to the character because it offers you that possibility. For me, Doctor Strange is a big challenge, but I embrace it.”

Enter a new reality alongside comic books’ greatest magical hero when DOCTOR STRANGE #1 hits stands in March! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

DARK WEB × MARY JANE & BLACK CAT

Face it, readers, you just hit the double jackpot! Mary Jane and Black Cat, two of the greatest loves of Peter Parker’s life, grab the spotlight in an explosive new limited series this December! The five-issue saga will tie directly into the upcoming Spider-Man/X-Men/Venom crossover, DARK WEB, and be written by Jed MacKay. After taking the character of Black Cat on a whirlwind of adventures in recent years in back-to-back solo series and the current Iron Cat limited series, the hit writer will now continue his transformative work on Marvel’s premier super thief, and this time, he’s taken MJ along for the ride! MacKay will be joined by artist Vincenzo Carratù, an up-and-coming talent making his exciting Marvel Comics debut! 

Earlier this year, MJ and Felicia joined forces to save Peter in MacKay’s Mary Jane & Black Cat: Beyond #1, an acclaimed one-shot that went on to receive a second printing. With the way Peter’s relationship stands with them in the current run of Amazing Spider-Man, the developments in this series are sure to be even crazier! Set against the twisted backdrop of DARK WEB, Mary Jane Watson and Felicia Hardy find themselves thrown into one another’s paths and then into the demonic dimension of LIMBO! But something has changed with MJ, and she’s not the only one keeping secrets – Felicia’s got a guilty conscience, and it’s playing havoc with their escape plan!

“I’ve kind of lost track of how many lives Felicia has left at this point, but she keeps coming back- and this time she’s brought a friend!” MacKay said. “Getting back to Mary Jane and Black Cat after their one-shot last year has been a delight—and seeing how they’ve been catching up on all the drama that’s happened since then has been, well, catnip.”

The team-up series Marvel fans have been waiting for is here! Check out the cover below by J. Scott Campbell, who once again lends his superstar talents to MJ and Black Cat’s saga, and pick up MARY JANE & BLACK CAT #1 when it arrives in December! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

Cover of MOON KNIGHT ANNUAL via Marvel Entertainment for use by 360 Magazine

WEREWOLF BY MOON KNIGHT!

Marc Spector is currently baring his very soul as he tackles his most hard-hitting missions to date in writer Jed MacKay’s current run on MOON KNIGHT. With new villains and fresh takes on the Moon Knight mythology, the title has been a hit with fans, and this October, readers will be treated to even more revolutionary Moon Knight action in the run’s first annual. A double-sized spectacular, MOON KNIGHT ANNUAL #1 will feature art by Federico Sabbatini, the artist behind select issues of MOON KNIGHT as well as the recent DEVIL’S REIGN: MOON KNIGHT one-shot. The story will feature a bloody reunion between Moon Knight and an iconic Marvel Comics character whom he shares deep roots with—Jack Russell, the Werewolf by Night! 

In the Darkhold, there is a prophecy of how a god might die. Jack Russell, more familiar with that cursed tome than most, would like very much to kill a god and save his people, the people bound in servitude to the moon. But to fulfill that prophecy requires the blood of the Fist of Khonshu, and Moon Knight doesn’t bleed easily.

“It’s been great seeing people respond to our MOON KNIGHT series, and it’s always a bit of a thrill to give folks even more- and MOON KNIGHT ANNUAL #1 was the place to revisit some old history,” MacKay explained. “Moon Knight has changed a lot since he first did battle with the Werewolf by Night, but so has Jack Russell, and having the opportunity to see how these two interact now, all these years later, has been a lot of fun. And Jack isn’t the only player in Moon Knight’s history who is turning up when Federico Sabbatini joins us for another adventure (and draws the hell out of it, I must add).”

Don’t miss this deadly rematch between Marvel’s two supernatural powerhouses when MOON KNIGHT ANNUAL #1 hits stands in October! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

Marvel Second Printings

Fans will get a chance to dive into Marvel Comics‘ most exciting new launches and ongoing series with new printings of “MARAUDERS ANNUAL #1,” “MOON KNIGHT #7,” “SILK #1,” “DAREDEVIL: WOMAN WITHOUT FEAR #1,” “SILVER SURFER REBIRTH #1”, “DEVIL’S REIGN #3,” and “CONAN THE BARBARIAN #1 FACSIMILE EDITION!” These sold-out issues will be available at comic shops starting on March 9, complete with new second printing covers. 

No one is safe from Kingpin‘s wrath in Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto‘s “DEVIL’S REIGN #3.” New York City stands at the brink of disaster as MAYOR WILSON FISK has at last reached a breaking point, with an army of supervillains at his back, and a deputized crew of supervillainous THUNDERBOLTS on the streets and in every police station. Worse still, he’s put the Marvel Universe’s most powerful tools into (all six) hands of one of its most diabolical minds, unaware of the disaster that could befall the entire city as a result! As a gauntlet of supervillains stands between Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Daredevil and liberating the heroes who have been captured by Fisk’s law enforcement, they’re all about to learn that the danger is closer than they ever thought possible.

Chip Zdarsky and Rafael De Latorre‘s “DAREDEVIL: WOMAN WITHOUT FEAR #1” brings readers the next pulse-pounding chapter in the saga of New York City’s Guardian Devil, this time starring Elektra as Daredevil! This continuation of Zdarsky’s landmark DAREDEVIL run spins directly out of the shocking revelations in the pages of DEVIL’S REIGN! Elektra is the world’s deadliest assassin—and she’s taken a vow not to kill. Someone puts themselves directly in her path with deadly consequences. What else would you expect from the Marvel Universe’s Greatest Hunter?!

A new crew of X-Men set sail in Steve Orlando and Creees Lee‘s “MARAUDERS ANNUAL #1”! With Kate Pryde at the helm, the Marauders are ready to renew their mission of mutant rescue! She’s got the mission—all she needs now is a new boat and a fresh crew to match. Pryde and Bishop must unite a crew of mutants, new and old, to spring Daken from imprisonment at the hands of a leader who’s as cruel as he is charismatic: the primal provocateur known as Brimstone Love! It’s the Marauders versus the Theater of Pain, a torture troupe that’s set up shop in Xavier’s School’s old backyard! Come aboard for the first adventure as Orlando takes the helm with the X-Men’s sea-faring mutant team.

Joined by artist Federico Sabbatini, Jed MacKay‘s hit run on Moon Knight continues in “MOON KNIGHT #7!” How do you fight someone that no one knows? Moon Knight is out for blood and hits the streets armed only with a name, but he soon finds out that in the twilight half-world of NYC supervillainy, sometimes the streets hit back. And while he’s fighting his way through the super-crime underworld, he’d better watch his back.

The “best character ever” is back in her own series and about to glam up the whole Marvel Universe in Rainbow Rowell and Roge Antonio‘s “SHE-HULK #1!” Jennifer Walters is no longer savage and needs to put her life back together. She’s got a career to rebuild, friends to reconnect with (and maybe represent in a court of law), and enemies to… well, she may not want to connect with them, but they are definitely going to connect with her. And the last page of this first issue is going to send Jen down a road she’s never traveled and that will shake up her life and possibly the whole Marvel Universe.

Don’t miss the comics debut of stunning storyteller Emily Kim and the return of legendary comic artist Takeshi Miyazawa in “SILK #1!” Cindy Moon returns as the web-spinning Spider-Hero SILK in an all-new, all-star series! As Silk gains popularity in the public eye, Cindy is questioning her place in the world. But existentialism will have to wait when a powerful new villain is turned loose! In a race against the clock, Silk discovers the dangers of ancient Korean magic—and social media.

Legendary creators Ron Marz and Ron Lim return to tell a story set during their fan-favorite run of SILVER SURFER in “SILVER SURFER REBIRTH #1!” Someone has stolen the Reality Gem, an object that allows the user to fulfill any wish no matter the consequences! But whoever has taken it is doing things like bringing back the dead hero Captain Mar-Vell. It’s up to Silver Surfer to team up with the least likely of allies, Thanos, to find the Gem and restore reality to its proper form. The second printing variant cover of “SILVER SURFER REBIRTH #1” will feature all-new artwork by Ron Lim.

Also returning to shops will be the special facsimile edition of “CONAN THE BARBARIAN (1970) #1!” Over fifty years ago, legendary writer Roy Thomas teamed with visionary artist Barry Windsor-Smith for the first comic book adaptation of Robert E. Howard‘s pulp novel icon—introducing True Believers to swords and sorcery in the Mighty Marvel Manner! Conan comic books soon became a huge, industry-changing success story – and it all began with “CONAN THE BARBARIAN #1” in 1970! Join the young Cimmerian warrior as he and an Aesir raiding party invade the land of Vanaheim—setting Conan on a path of adventure leading to winged demons, a dark temple, and the mysterious Star-Stone, which would offer a vision of Conan’s future as a king! It’s one of the all-time great Marvel comic books, boldly re-presented in its original form, ads and all!

New Marvel Comics Series – Strange

This March, make way for the new Sorcerer Supreme! With Doctor Strange dead, another sorcerer has taken the title, or should we say Sorceress? Clea, mistress of the Dark Dimension and Stephen Strange’s powerful partner, will rise to the challenge of defending earth from mystical and otherworldly danger in writer Jed MacKay’s STRANGE #1! Featuring artwork by AMAZING SPIDER-MAN artist Marcelo Ferreira, this all-new ongoing series will spin directly out of the story still unfolding in MacKay’s DEATH OF DOCTOR STRANGE. Readers should stay tuned to the hit limited series to see the tragedy and drama that leads into this exciting turn of events!

Haunted by her recently returned memories, Clea longs to bring Stephen Strange back from the dead! But when a mysterious group attacks the magical realm, Clea, now the sole protector of Earth against magical threats, must rise to the duties of Sorcerer Supreme. Don’t miss the shocking twists, new villains, and unbelievable magical feats as Clea takes Marvel magic to places it’s never gone before!

Here’s what MacKay had to say about continuing this unprecedented Doctor Strange saga:

“After the apocalyptic events of The Death of Doctor Strange, there’s a new Sorcerer Supreme in residence at 177A Bleecker Street, and a new Doctor Strange- Clea Strange. And she’s got her work cut out for her- when she’s not fighting off the magical gangsters of the Blasphemy Syndicate, or battling undead super-monsters, she’s going after what’s hers: the late Stephen Strange. Clea is of the Faltine, that race of Warlords and conquerors, and like her relatives Dormammu and Umar, she will not be thwarted in her desires, not even by the mysterious Harvestman standing in her way.

“It’s been really exciting to open up a new chapter in the world of Doctor (Clea) Strange, to get some new adventures going and some new weirdies on the table, and I can’t wait for folks to come along with us!” 

Enter a thrilling new age of Marvel mysticism when STRANGE #1 hits stands on March 2.

Amazing Spider – Man Eighty Five

Last week, the Beyond era of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN officially kicked off and fans witnessed the beginning of a new age that will see Ben Reilly taking over as the new and improved Spider-Man! Told over the course of 19 thrilling issues, this saga will be brought to you by a group of all-star comics talent known as the Beyond Board: Patrick Gleason, Saladin Ahmed, Zeb Wells, Kelly Thompson, and Cody Ziglar. These incredible creators are ready to take Ben Reilly and the Spider-Man mythos beyond your wildest expectations! 

Peter Parker may be out of commission but luckily, Ben Reilly is more than capable of taking his place. Equipped with gadgets and tech from the Beyond Corporation, Reilly has everything it takes to be the superior Spider-Man but he’ll finally meet his match in a devastating battle against one of Spider-Man’s most feared enemies—Doctor Octopus!

It begins in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #85 by writer Cody Ziglar and artist Paco Medina. It’s going to take everything Ben Reilly and the company that backs him has to stop Otto Octavius. But, in the Merry Marvel fashion and as with all respectable Spider-Stories, even if Spider-Man wins, he is going to lose. AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #86 by writer Zeb Wells and artist Michael Dowling will deal with the aftermath of the fight and will be a comic that fans will remember for years to come. Ben Reilly has been shaken to the core, and you will be too. And find out if Peter Parker can step up and be Spider-Man again in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #87 by writer Jed MacKay and artist Carlos Gómez. With NYC reeling from Doc Ock’s attack and Ben Reilly possibly down, it’s up to Captain America and Black Cat to see if Peter Parker is ready for action again.

Black Cat: Infinity Score via C.F. Villa for Marvel for use by 360 Magazine

Black Cat: Infinity Score

This summer, fans discovered the whereabouts of Marvel Comics’ most legendary artifacts in INFINITE DESTINIES! Unfolding over a series of epic annuals, this unpredictable story saw heroes from all corners of the Marvel Universe on a chase to prevent the powerful Infinity Stones from falling into the wrong hands. Central to the action was Marvel’s iconic thief Black Cat who walked away as the new wielder of this great cosmic power. The events of this story spun out into INFINITY SCORE, the current arc in her hit ongoing series. Now, fans will witness the stunning conclusion to this grand saga in GIANT-SIZE BLACK CAT: INFINITY SCORE. Written by BLACK CAT writer Jed MacKay with art by C.F. Villa, this oversized special will be a character-redefining one-shot with huge repercussions for the future of the Marvel Universe… 

Black Cat has brought half of the Infinity Stones together, collecting a level of power that hasn’t been seen in years! But to what end? This hasn’t taken her out of the crosshairs of Nick Fury OR Nighthawk, and with the Infinity Stones involved, can Thanos be far behind?

Here’s what MacKay had to say about bringing his Black Cat saga to its finale: “One last job.”

It’s a powerful phrase. Sometimes that’s how crime stories start, and sometimes that’s how they end. In this case, it’s the latter. But never fear, we’re sending Felicia and her crew off in style with GIANT-SIZE BLACK CAT #1, the 30-page finale to the INFINITY SCORE, where we see Felicia pull off the final hair-raising heist of her series, where the risks are high and the stakes are even higher. Juggling the job, the various cosmically powered misfits she’s collected, the shady movers who are after the stones and their hosts for their own reasons, and her own personal problems, Felicia’s putting it all on the line for the greatest payoff she can imagine. And when the smoke clears, will the Black Cat have landed on her feet, or will she land herself in jail, or a grave? Find out in GIANT-SIZE BLACK CAT #1 this November!

“BLACK CAT has been a gift. In the two-and-a-half years or so since we started this book, Felicia Hardy went from a character that I was passingly familiar with to my favorite, and in the course of that time I’ve been privileged enough to work with some of the best artists, colorists, and letterers in the business. For a book we weren’t sure was going to make it past #5, we’ll have wrapped up 25 issues in total and have taken Felicia all across the Marvel Universe and back. It’s a book I’m going to miss dearly, but we’ve shown the world that the Black Cat can hang with anyone and deserves her seat at the table!”

Did Black Cat get lucky or did her luck just run out? Find out in the startling climax to INFINITE DESTINIES when GIANT-SIZE BLACK CAT: INFINITY SCORE #1 hits stands in November! For more information, click HERE.
