Well hello my comic book loving fiends, and once again may I wish you a very Happy New Year. It’s 2019 now and that means a whole bunch of things for the fans of the Pop Culture side of the fence. Not only are there some awesome reads coming out this month but its also the beginning of Marvel’s 80th Anniversary so you can all expect a whole lot more of this type of stuff to be featured. Here are the January offerings from Marvel Comics and as always the copy and images come care of their resources. The closing editorial notes is all me though of course. Here we go.
CONAN THE BARBARIAN #1: BY CROM, THE GREATEST SWORD-AND-SORCERY HERO RETURNS TO MARVEL! From an age undreamed…hither came Conan the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandaled feet…Robert E. Howard’s creation returns to comics, in an epic tale as only MARVEL could bring you! Conan’s travels have brought him to the far reaches of the unkown, from his birthplace in Cimmeria to the kingdom of Aquilonia and all in between. As his fighting prowess allows him to carve his way through life, so too does it attract the forces of death! The all-new ages-spanning saga begins here, by writer Jason Aaron (THE MIGHTY THOR, STAR WARS) and artist Mahmud Asrar (UNCANNY X-MEN, ALL-NEW, ALL-DIFFERENT AVENGERS), as Conan’s destiny is forever changed!

CAPTAIN MARVEL #1: ALL THE STARS ALIGN AS KELLY THOMPSON AND CARMEN CARNERO TAKE ON MARVEL’S PREMIER FEMALE SUPER HERO!

New York City has never looked so good. But every re-entry comes with the unexpected, and Carol is about to hit a whole lot of unexpected. It’s a fresh start and an oversized, star-studded welcome home for a hero who’s been punching the glass ceiling since the 1970s — and just in time for the first female-led film from Marvel Studios! The next 50 years of Captain Marvel starts here!
Happy Friday my comic book loving friends. Looks like the mighty Marvel media team wants to send us into the weekend with a little bit of mystery as they sent out an alert with the impacting statement of “The Best Defense”. Attached to the message was this crushing image of The Incredible Hulk. The art is by Ron Garney and Richard Isanove. Since they love to send several images out for this kind of announcement, as they come in I will edit this single post.
Can I still wish you readers a “Happy New Year”? I like to think that I can since we are only just now finishing the first full week of 2016 so it is still very fresh. At least to me it is. Now I have to say that I am super excited for all of the cool comic book things that are coming out this year and January has really shown that we are in for a lot of treats. The first couple of “Deadpool” True Believers issues are out and based on the timing of this post some of the issues below are already on the stands but that should not be anything problematic for you in terms of getting copies. These are the first issues only from Marvel Comics that are coming this month and in case you wondered, there are numerous variant covers to be enjoyed. While I don’t have them visually represented there are Hip Hop covers and Deadpool covers for those who want them. Here we go.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. #1: It’s high-stakes espionage in the Marvel Universe in this brand-new series inspired by the hit television show Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Tony Stark guest-stars in the beginning of “THE COULSON PROTOCOLS.”

Keeping up with the Marvel Comics delivery of first issues that are a part of their now labelled “All-New Marvel Now!” campaign here are the titles that readers can count on being on the shelves for the month of March. These will join the batch of stories that are already in progress so you clearly have some back issue shopping or trade paperback seeking to do when time and financials allow.
Since I was not able to examine these issues in advance for your edification, I have respectfully snagged the titles premise from the official Marvel NOW! Wikipedia entry and you can see that under each presented cover. Should I have anything to add to the mix I will line it out as new copy from me. Here we go steadfast into March.
