Hi there, so Marvel is set for a big reset.  This ‘reset’ is really starting to get talked up by everyone from industry heavyweights to the comic punters at home.  There’s a fair bit of activity chasing down Avengers vs. X-Men (AvX) which, even though heavily promoted, is now really showing that this series was the start of  significant restart of Marvel’s regular universe.  So, what does this mean for us?  Perhaps a great synergy with the silver screen version of the Marvel universe, but honestly, it’s a guessing game for now.  I’ve highlighted the series that are restarting so have a look to see if that affects any of the titles you’ve been following to date.

It’s becoming widely accepted that this restart will be near a level that we’ve seen with DC’s New 52, but interestingly, some Marvel titles will carry on for now as per normal such as certain X titles, Spider-Man and of course, the already separate Ultimate Universe.  So how wide spread this will be will reveal itself in time. Regardless, reasonably exciting time in comics as always J  Have a look here at CBR for the full list of Marvel’s November releases.  If anything DC’s re-launch showed, these initial issues will be sell-outs guaranteed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

So the new titles for November are:

ALL NEW X-MEN #1

AVENGERS #1

CAPTAIN AMERICA #1

DEADPOOL #1

FANTASTIC FOUR #1

FF #1

INDESTRUCTIBLE HULK #1

IRON MAN #1

MARVEL NOW: POINT ONE (2012) #1

THOR GOD OF THUNDER #1

UNCANNY AVENGERS (2012) #1  (this was orderable with the August Previews but can still be ordered)

X-MEN LEGACY #1

Couple of recommendations?  If you want something  bit different with a dry sense of humour, try DeadpoolAll New X-Men also sounds tempting.   The original team are brought forward from their beginning into the world of today asking them to look at their ‘future’ and is it what they aspired it to be?  Time travelling headaches aside, this could be a refreshing X title.  Just look at the good things that happened when they used classic characters in the last X movie.

Whatever way your roll, this is a roll of the dice for Marvel, let’s hope they come up with a winning roll.  It looks promising as if they can work some better cohesiveness in their books that complement the extension on the silver screen, it will be exciting times.  Marvel have also reorganised their ‘architects’ (their top five talents) to guide these titles so there’s no slouching there.

DAREDEVIL: END OF DAYS #2 (of 8) – I thought I’d just highlight this mini-series again as it could be something pretty wild.  Brian Michael Bendis combining with artist David Mack could make for a very special ‘end’ story of Daredevil.  If you like alternative takes on Marvel heroes and/or Daredevil this I think will be worth a look.
