CAPTAIN AMERICA TITLES

STEVE ROGERS CONFRONTS THE OUTER CIRCLE, SAM WILSON PARTNERS WITH NOMAD, AND MORE AS MARVEL’S CAPTAIN AMERICA TITLES HEAT UP AHEAD OF ‘COLD WAR’!
Check out what November will bring in CAPTAIN AMERICA: SENTINEL OF LIBERTY and CAPTAIN AMERICA: SYMBOL OF TRUTH and learn about CAPTAIN AMERICA & THE WINTER SOLDIER SPECIAL, a brand-new one-shot

Announced at San Diego Comic-Con last month, both CAPTAIN AMERICA titles will crossover next year in the upcoming epic, COLD WAR! The saga will be a culmination of the threats, battles, and mysteries that’s been at the center of both Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson’s adventures since the start of this critically-acclaimed new era!

Over in writers Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing and artist Carmen Carnero’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: SENTINEL OF LIBERTY, Steve Rogers is hunting down a shadowy group of villains known as the Outer Circle in order to unearth a shocking secret about the creation of his shield. And over in writer Tochi Onyebuchi and artist R.B. Silva’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: SYMBOL OF TRUTH, Sam Wilson is unraveling a conspiracy of his own, ones that’s taken him everywhere from Latveria to Wakanda for showdowns with Doctor Doom and the newly returned White Wolf! More thrills await and right now, fans can get a peek at what’s to come in both titles this November!

In CAPTAIN AMERICA: SENTINEL OF LIBERTY #6, Captain America has misjudged his place in the battle against the elusive Outer Circle…and it’s about to cost him everything. The Century Game has been turned upside down. And when the dust settles, Steve Rogers’ world will never be the same again.

In CAPTAIN AMERICA: SYMBOL OF TRUTH #7, featuring guest artist Ig Guara, the White Wolf’s latest attack has put Falcon in critical condition and sparked a civil war in Mohannda. When Sam Wilson’s role as Captain America prevents him from pursuing his own justice on an international scale, his government contact sets him up with a surprising new partner – an old ally long thought dead. As teased yesterday, It’s the return of Nomad! But who will bear the mantle this time, and will their assistance be a blessing or a curse?

And that’s not all! Kelly and Lanzing will team up with superstar artist Kev Walker to reveal the origins of Captain America’s newest foes and what the Outer Circle’s next move means for the future of the Winter Soldier in a double-sized one-shot, CAPTAIN AMERICAN & THE WINTER SOLDIER SPECIAL! The 20th century progressed at a more rapid pace than any other in history but not without help from the shadows. Learn more about the four members of this mysterious cabal—Power, Money, Machine, Love, and Revolution—and the unbelievable ways they’ve altered history!

WAKANDA FOREVER PROLOGUE

Following Saturday’s release of the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever teaser trailer at San Diego Comic-Con, the Wakanda Forever Prologue EP is available today. Listen and watch the visualizer music clips here.

As highlighted in the official teaser, the EP includes the powerful cover of Bob Marley and the Wailers’ “No Woman No Cry” performed by Nigerian artist Tems. The project is produced by Oscar, GRAMMY and Emmy-winning composer Ludwig Göransson, and also features “A Body, A Coffin” performed by Ghanian artist Amaarae and “Soy” by Mexican rapper Santa Fe Klan.

Commenting on the inspiration behind this prologue, Ryan Coogler and Goransson shared, This Prologue is an aural first glimpse ofWakanda Forever. The sound world for the film began with extended trips to Mexico and Nigeria. We spent our days working with traditional musicians who educated us about the cultural, social and historical contexts of their music. We built a catalogue of instrumental and vocal recordings with them that explored both traditional and non-traditional uses of their musical material. During the nights on these trips, we had recording sessions with contemporary artists who were akin to the characters and thematic material explored in the film. Using the script as a blueprint, along with the recordings from the traditional musicians, we began to build a musical vocabulary for the characters, storylines and cultures. The instrumental score and soundtrack forWakanda Forever both organically grew from these sessions and workshops. They are conceived together as a singular entity to create an immersive and enveloping sound world for the film.

  1. No Woman No Cry –  Performed by Tems; Written by Vincent Ford
  2. A Body, A Coffin – Performed by Amaarae; Written by Ama “Amaarae” Serwah Genfi, Ludwig Göransson, Joel Mason “Maesu” Tanner, Kwame “KZ” Kwei-Armah Jr. and Jephte “Kyu” Steed Baloki
  3. Soy – Performed by Santa Fe Klan; Written by Ludwig Göransson and Angel Quezada

In Marvel Studios‘ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba), fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda. Introducing Tenoch Huerta as Namor, king of a hidden undersea nation, the film also stars Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Mabel Cadena, and Alex Livanalli. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever opens in U.S. theaters Nov. 11, 2022.

MARVEL NEXT BIG THING

Marvel’s famous panel Next Big Thing Panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con just concluded and, as always, it was filled to the brim with announcements, first looks, and teases about the future of the Marvel Universe! Editor in Chief C.B. Cebulski, Executive Editor Nick Lowe, editors Darren Shan and Lauren Bisom and an incredible lineup of creators including Christopher Cantwell (Iron Man), Jonathan Hickman (X-Men), Ram V (Venom, Carnage), and Collin Kelly & Jackson Lanzing (Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty) came together to reveal some of the hottest Marvel titles coming your way in the next few months. Here’s some of the panel’s biggest announcements!

Marvel Comics visionary Jason Aaron will unite his work on AVENGERS, AVENGERS FOREVER, and AVENGERS OF 1,000,000 BC into one incredible epic in AVENGERS ASSEMBLE! Aaron will kick off the saga with superstar artist Bryan Hitch in November’s AVENGERS ASSEMBLE: ALPHA one-shot before crossing over between issues of AVENGERS and AVENGERS FOREVER!

From throughout time and the far corners of the Multiverse, the Mightiest Heroes of All the Earths are assembling as never before for a battle beyond all imagining. A war that will take us from the prehistoric beginnings of an Earth under assault by the greatest villains who’ve ever lived to the watchtower that stands at the dark heart of the all and the always, where an army of unprecedented evil now rises. The biggest Avengers saga in Marvel history begins now.

Here’s what Aaron said about tying together his many contributions to the Avengers mythos: 

“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. 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.”

From the fantastical mind of creator Tradd Moore (Silver Surfer: Black) comes a Strange story like you’ve never seen in DOCTOR STRANGE: FALL SUNRISE! Launching in November, the four-issue limited series sees Doctor Strange awaken alone in a distant world not his own. Lost of purpose and surrounded by danger, the wandering sorcerer must explore this land of blades and mystery to unravel arcane secrets and escape the deadly horrors that lie in wait!

November will also see an oversized celebration for the Golden Avenger’s 650th issue in IRON MAN #25! It’s Iron Man Day in New York City, but not everyone is ready to celebrate the ongoing legacy of Tony Stark — least of all him. But a sudden crisis will once again test Tony’s heroism and challenge his commitment to the role he has assumed for himself. Must there be an Iron Man? Christopher Cantwell concludes his thought-provoking and powerful run as writer, as illustrated by Angel Unzueta. PLUS! Murewa Ayodele and Dotun Akande tell a tale of Iron Man’s quest to locate Thor amid the frozen wastelands of Niffleheim. Kurt Busiek and Ben Dewey pair up to provide an all-new vintage Iron Man adventure from the distant past featuring Madame Masque and the Radioactive Man! And get a special glimpse of what’s coming up next for the Armored Avenger!

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur’s highly-anticipated new solo series will arrive in December! Written by Jordan Ifueko and drawn by Alba GlezMOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR #1 will begin a brand-new era for the breakout young hero as the smartest person in the Marvel Universe also takes her place as one of its greatest heroes!

MARVEL – DARK WEB

Devilish details about DARK WEB have emerged during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con! Teased in various panels throughout the weekend, DARK WEB will be a Spider-Man/X-Men crossover story spearheaded by current AMAZING SPIDER-MAN scribe Zeb Wells. The saga will begin in prelude issues throughout November, followed by December’s DARK WEB ALPHA #1 where Wells will be joined by superstar artist Adam Kubert. From there, the web will be spun across issues of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN as well as various tie-in one-shots and limited series. 

DARK WEB will find Spider-Man and the X-Men joining forces against two iconic characters that have experienced a resurgence in popularity in recent years—Ben Reilly and Madelyne Pryor. As seen in this year’s FREE COMIC BOOK DAY: SPIDER-MAN/VENOM, the two wronged clones are teaming up as Chasm and Goblin Queen to raise hell across the Marvel Universe. The story will fan the embers of the iconic INFERNO crossover and pack an emotional punch that pays off decades of Marvel Comics storytelling.

Featuring artwork by Michael Dowling and Kyle Hotz, November’s AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #14 will be a special DARK WEB prelude issue that reintroduces CHASM, Ben Reilly’s dangerous new persona. Not seen since AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #894 and FREE COMIC BOOK DAY: SPIDER-MAN/VENOM, fans will see exactly what Chasm and the Goblin Queen have been busy with. The issue will also introduce a brand-new villain shrouded in mystery—HALLOWS’ EVE. Set to plan a pivotal role in the event, fans can get their first glimpse at Hallows’ Eve and her killer design in a new variant cover by Ed McGuinness. The superstar artist recently graced the pages of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN for this week’s 900th issue and will return to the title for the upcoming DARK WEB tie-in issues.

Writer Christopher Cantwell and artist Lan Medina will launch a new tie-in limited series during DARK WEB titled GOLD GOBLIN that sets up a new status quo for Norman Osborn. Norman Osborn’s sins may have been cleansed, but his memories weren’t and he’s done plenty of horrific things to remember. Norman’s worked hard to avoid all things “Goblin” and to stay on the straight and narrow. Consequences in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN pushed him to try super-heroing, and he liked it. But when the media dub him the Gold Goblin, he has to start wondering – can he ever get away from the Goblin inside?

MARVEL – TIGER DIVISION

Announced earlier today at San Diego Comic-Con’s Retailer Panel, Tiger Division will take center stage in their first ever solo series this November! Introduced by Jed MacKay last year in books like Taskmaster and Black Cat Annual, the team of South Korea’s fiercest defenders were a breakout hit, and now, fans will learn more about the team in a five-issue limited series written by Emily Kim (Silk) and drawn by Creees Lee (Marvel’s Voices: Identity).

STRANGE ACADEMY IS BACK

Announced today by surprise guest Skottie Young at San Diego Comic-Con’s Retailer Panel, STRANGE ACADEMY will return this November! Young and artist Humberto Ramos will continue the spellbinding adventures of the students at Doctor Strange’s school for the mystic arts in STRANGE ACADEMY: FINALS #1.

Throughout their original run, the two powerhouse creators revitalized the mystical side of the Marvel Universe with the introduction of new captivating characters like Emily Bright, Doyle Dormammu, and Zoe Laveau. A hit with new readers and longtime Marvel fans, STRANGE ACADEMY quickly became one of the hottest Marvel titles on the shelves, and the best is yet to come! 

Earlier this month, STRANGE ACADEMY #18 ended the series’ first era with a student rebellion, a daring journey to the Dark Dimension, and the realization that some of the school’s brightest stars have dark futures…

Freshman year is almost over! From day one, people have been wondering – who is the savior of Strange Academy, and who can bring it all down? The future of Marvel Magic is going to be decided here, and it will take FAR more than the Sorcerer Supreme and his school if magic has a chance!

“This is a real passion project for me and Humberto, and we’ve never had so much fun making this project,” Young said. “All of the high school teen drama between Dormammu’s son Doyle and Emily Bright is going to come back, but this is not just a continuation of the next day of class! You will see the ramifications of how the first series ended, and we’re going to be focusing on some really cool characters. And with the prophecy over the last few years…someone’s going to come out of this changed in a big way.”

“When we first started, we just wanted to do something together, but it was great to see the reaction from the fans,” Ramos added. “I love drawing these characters, and Skottie gives them the best scripts to play with these kids, their universe, their concerns and powers, and the way they’d like the world to be. This new saga and chapter of their lives will be really insane.”

Check out the main cover and interior artwork, and be there when the newest Marvel Comics’ phenomenon returns on October 26! For more information, visit HERE.
