Silver Surfer Rebirth via Marvel Comics for use by 360 Magazine

Silver Surfer Rebirth

This January, legendary creators Ron Marz and Ron Lim will make their grand return to the mythos they helped define with an all-new story set during their classic run on SILVER SURFER! A five-issue limited series, SILVER SURFER: REBIRTH, will follow in the tradition of current hit titles such as X-MEN LEGENDS and SYMBIOTE SPIDER-MAN which sees the greatest creators in Marvel Comics history revisit their historic runs for fresh insights and revelatory adventures. Throughout the 90s, Marz and Lim shaped Marvel’s cosmic landscape with epic tales involving Silver Surfer, Thanos, and the Infinity Gems. Now, the writer/artist duo are back to deliver everything that fans loved about their original works and more! 

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!

“Turns out you can go home again,” Marz said. “Silver Surfer with Ron Lim was literally my first job in comics. The first comic page I ever wrote was drawn by Ron when we were both kids. And now three decades later we get to go back there and slip right back into that same groove. It’s so great to be wielding the power cosmic again.” 

“I am so thrilled to be penciling SILVER SURFER: REBIRTH,” Lim said. “When Darren Shan, our editor, asked if I’d be interested in working on this with Ron Marz, I jumped at the chance. It is fantastic to be working with Ron again. It has been quite a while since we worked together, but it feels like hardly a day has passed. I’m having a blast getting to draw many of my favorite characters from our run. The story is full of surprises, familiar characters and crazy cosmic action! I can’t wait for the readers to  check out the book – hope they enjoy it as much as I enjoy drawing it!’

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. You may think you know where this story is going, but you do not.

Also coming in January will be MARY JANE & BLACK CAT: BEYOND #1, a new one-shot written by Jed MacKay with art by C.F. Villa. This unlikely team up will see Mary Jane coming to the rescue of Black Cat after she’s been kidnapped. Mary Jane has never liked Felicia Hardy, and now she has to save her life! But remember, this is the Black Cat we’re talking about. Things are never quite what they seem.

Don’t miss a single issue of this bold new era of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN! Check out the covers now and look out for these issues when they hit stands in January! For more information, click HERE.

Black Panther Issue One

This November, Academy Award-winning writer John Ridley and Marvel’s Stormbreaker artist Juann Cabal launch T’Challa’s next revolutionary chapter in BLACK PANTHER #1! The new era will see secrets from T’Challa’s past coming back to haunt him and threaten the nation of Wakanda. Fresh from returning from his adventures in space, Black Panther receives an unexpected and urgent message from a Wakandan secret agent. T’Challa must race the clock not only to save his agent, but also to keep his true agenda under wraps. Because if the truth comes out, it could cost T’Challa everything… Fans can get their first glimpse at this historic new launch in the new BLACK PANTHER #1 trailer, featuring never-before-seen artwork.

“It’s a hybrid espionage-Super Hero thriller, but at its core, it’s a love story,” Ridley told The New York Times. “And I don’t mean just romantic love, although there’s some of that as well. It’s love between friends.

“We’re coming out of a summer where we saw Black people fighting for our rights, standing up, fighting in ways that we haven’t had to do in years,” Ridley added. “And it was really important to me after the year we had where we can have these conversations with Black people and we can use words like love and caring and hope and regret and all these really fundamental emotions that everybody has.”

Don’t miss the start of a new Marvel epic when BLACK PANTHER #1 hits stands on November 10!

Kang the Conquerer via Carlos Magno for Marvel Entertainment for use by360 Magazine

New Marvel Printings Coming Soon

Four of Marvel’s hottest titles will be getting new printings! These currently sold out hit issues will be hitting stands on October 27. Complete with new covers, these exciting new printings will give fans a chance to dive into some of Marvel’s biggest current stories!

Writers Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing and artist Carlos Magno continue to unravel the true origins of one of Marvel’s most complex villains in Kang the Conquerer #2. A young, rebellious and idealistic Kang finds himself in Ancient Egypt, where an older version of himself is ruling with an iron fist as the pharaoh Rama-Tut. When the Moon Knight draws young Kang into a battle against his future self, tragedy strikes. But will it knock Nathaniel off the course of his destiny or lock him into one path forever?

Writer Jed MacKay and artist Alessandro Cappuccio’s critically acclaimed hit run on one of Marvel’s most fascinating super heroes continues in Moon Knight #3 where Moon Knight faces off against a mysterious new enemy. Moon Knight has taken on Khonshu’s duty as his own. To the people he protects, this is a blessing. To Hunter’s Moon, this is sacrilege. It is no small thing, to betray a god and take on his role. And when the Fist of Khonshu offers shelter to vampires, the ancient enemies of the Moon God? The Moon Knight requires correction, and Hunter’s Moon will bring him back to the right path—whatever it might take.

Witness the final chapter of Stephen Strange in Death of Doctor Strange #1 by writer Jed MacKay and artist Lee Garbett. He defends our planet from the supernatural and interdimensional threats no other hero is equipped to handle. But what happens when he unexpectedly dies? Who will step in to protect Earth and keep the mystical evils at bay? And most importantly…who killed Stephen Strange?! From the looks of the new second printing cover, this mystery is just beginning…

And tensions were raised in X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #2 by writer Leah Williams and artist Lucas Werneck. When the Avengers come to Krakoa to retrieve the body of their fallen teammate, the Scarlet Witch, an epic fight between Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Magneto. And with a shocking final page, this mutant murder mystery just got a whole lot more complicated!

Hawkeye: Kate Bishop

This November, Kate Bishop’s adventure continues! Marvel’s new miniseries, HAWKEYE: KATE BISHOP is a five-part series that follows Kate on a new adventure in a familiar place: back home to New York. 

Following a stint in Los Angeles, HAWKEYE: KATE BISHOP picks up at a turning point in Kate’s life when she returns to New York after being convinced by many friends, and a few clues from the case she’s working, to come back to the East Coast. When Kate gets invited to a resort to solve a mysterious jewel heist, she sees it as a confidence-boost, a sign that she’s making the right decision and not going to backslide into her past. The case is perfect…and it’s almost definitely a trap.

The story comes from an elite creative team including New York Times best-selling author Marieke Nijkamp and artist Enid Balám.

“Because Kate’s story is in flux right now, it’s the perfect time to jump on board for the adventure,” writer Marieke Nijkamp told Bustle. “You don’t need to know where she was to enjoy the journey!” 

Be there when Kate’s exciting next chapter kicks off in HAWKEYE: KATE BISHOP this November!

Avengers #750

This November, Marvel Comics proudly presents the 750th issue of AVENGERS, and it promises to be one for the ages! Continuing Jason Aaron’s Marvel Universe-shaping run, AVENGERS #750 will be a 96-page milestone issue consisting of multiple game changing stories by an all-star lineup of artists including Carlos Pacheco, Aaron Kuder, Ed McGuinness, and Javier Garrón. The giant-sized epic will be packed with revelations and jaw dropping moments, including the introduction of THE MULTIVERSAL MASTERS OF EVIL, the deadly new group of villains fans met in this year’s FREE COMIC BOOK DAY: AVENGERS/HULK #1!

 Throughout this supersize extravaganza, fans will also witness the shocking conclusion of “World War She-Hulk”, finally learn the true purpose of the prehistoric Avengers, uncover the shocking secret of the Iron Inquisitor, watch the Avengers recruit some surprising new members, and follow the Ghost Rider on a quest for vengeance across the Multiverse that will spark an all-new era in Avengers history!

“It’s such an honor to be a part of issue #750 of AVENGERS, and I’m looking to celebrate the rich history of the title and its iconic characters by using this issue as the gargantuan-sized kick-off for a story that’ll be as wildly sweeping and swing-for-the-fences epic as it can possibly be,” Aaron said. “It’s not just that everything I’ve been doing in the last 50 issues of AVENGERS has been leading to this, but there are threads feeding into the next year’s worth of stories that stretch back to most every major series I’ve ever written in my 15 years at Marvel Comics.”

In addition, best-selling author Christopher Ruocchio, known for his award winning The Sun-Eater series, makes his Marvel Comics debut alongside superstar artist Steve McNiven in a bonus story starring Thor.

“I’m honored to play a small part in this moment of Avengers history and thrilled to get to work with Steve McNiven to bring you all a little classic Thor,” Ruocchio said. “It’s a bit surreal to get to work with a character I grew up with, and I hope I’ve told a tale worthy of the God of Thunder.”

Be there when the startling future of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes kicks off in AVENGERS #750 this November! For more information, click HERE.

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.

Venom #1

Hot off the heels of VENOM #200 and EXTREME CARNAGE, this October will see the start of one of the most ambitious series in symbiote VENOM #200 and EXTREME CARNAGE history: VENOM #1! Announced last month, Marvel’s resident master of horror, Al Ewing, and titan of terror Ram V have teamed up to craft a mind-bending and gut-wrenching tale of symbiosis the likes of which the Marvel Universe has never seen. Rounding out this symbiote hivemind will be legendary artist Bryan Hitch, bringing his rich and detailed style to the Venomverse. The future of Venom lies in the hands of this mastermind team, and you won’t believe what lies ahead!

“When my editors at Marvel reached out about taking on Venom alongside Al Ewing and Bryan Hitch, I was not prepared for the kind of creative thrill it has been ever since,” Ram V said. “This story is going to expand and push the symbiote narrative and lore in even more unexpected and fantastic directions. It is also an utter thrill having the sort of call and response mechanic I’ve had with a writer like Al and an artist of Bryan’s caliber. Fans and new readers, strap in— you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.”

Check out Bryan Hitch’s main cover now and pick up VENOM #1 when it hits stands on October 13th! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

DONNY CATES × RYAN STEGMAN — FAREWELL TO VENOM

VENOM #200 hits stands tomorrow!

Tomorrow marks the end one of the most revolutionary Marvel sagas of the last decade: Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman’s VENOM. The superstar creative team will close out their redefining work on Eddie Brock and the symbiote mythos in Venom’s milestone 200th issue. Over the years, Cates and Stegman have torn Eddie Brock’s life asunder, uncovering long-hidden mysteries behind the nature of symbiotes while exploring Venom’s very nature as a Marvel hero. This bold era launched two line-wide events, Absolute Carnage and King in Black, and will leave a lasting impact not only on the character of Venom but on the Marvel Universe as a whole. The acclaimed duo recently sat down to reflect on their run in a special farewell video, spotlighting their greatest moments as well as a sneak peek at tomorrow’s issue.

“We’re gonna end this run the way that we started it—by exploding everything you ever thought that you knew, and setting the stage for something that’s truly and honestly going to change Eddie and the Marvel Universe forever,” Cates said.

“We’ve got some of the coolest images in the series coming up in 200,” Stegman promises. “If you thought that Venom with a battle axe with a star field on his costume with glowing eyes was crazy, you haven’t seen much yet.”

Pick up this historic end of an era digitally or at your local comic shop when VENOM #200 debuts tomorrow!
