The Press Release:
In 2018’s West Coast Avengers, a new Marvel super hero swam into the hearts of fans and hit the Marvel Universe like an adorable tidal wave: JEFF THE LANDSHARK! Since his introduction, Jeff has teamed up with some of Marvel biggest heroes and became a mega star in his own right, even starring in his own Eisner-nominated Infinity Comic on the Marvel Unlimited App. Written by Jeff’s creator Kelly Thompson and brought to life by the amazing talents of Gurihiru, this hit series will be collected in print for the first time this March in Jeff’s self-titled print comic book debut: IT’S JEFF #1! This collection of irresistible short stories will charm readers everywhere along with a brand-new tale exclusive to the issue!
The ingenious, the extraordinary, the unbearably innocent Jeff chomps his way across the Marvel Universe! You thought it was safe doing laundry or going for a leisurely swim in the pool…but no activity can protect against Jeff’s cuteness! Jeff’s hijinks features a who’s who cast of Marvel characters including the Avengers, Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, and many, many more!
“I suspect I’m more excited than anyone to have this print edition in my hands, and I say that while knowing it’s probably the single most asked fan question I’ve gotten over the last year — so I’m happy for all of us that it’s finally happening!” Thompson said. “Working on IT’S JEFF with Gurihiru has been pure joy. They are masterful storytellers and are also masters of CUTE. Both vital things when making a mostly wordless comic about an adorable landshark just trying to do the right thing and also to EAT all of the things.”
Check out Gurihiru’s all-new IT’S JEFF #1 cover below and dive into Jeff’s amazing adventures this March! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: While I’ve pointed out my having slowed down in the monthly comic book purchasing, I do still occasionally snag a first issue or a special edition one-shot and this applies on both counts for me. I only know a little about Jeff The Land Shark but think that its a lot of fun so I might be looking into this one myself come March. What do you readers think about this one? Does it strike your interests a little bit? Chime in down below and let me know what you think. See you next time.
