Marvel Comics First Issues Coming January 2017

Hey there readers and Happy New Year once again. We are getting to the comic book posts a day later than usual since we had the whole “2017 Wish” for you to digest first. So here I am with the Marvel Comics stuff first and one of the interesting things is the whole “Monsters Unleashed” storyline. I’ve been posting the news about these over the last couple of months in an effort to have you better prepared for the invasion and you can re-examine those articles by clicking on THIS LINK. As we’ve done over the past years, the press copy and images come from the Marvel side of the fence and the I’ll close up with some personal choices. Here we go.

“Monsters Unleashed” #1

MONSTERS UNLEASHED #1 (OF 5): THE EPIC BATTLE MARVEL FANS HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR, DRAWN BY TODAY’S GREATEST ARTISTS!!! It’s all hands on deck with the AVENGERS, CHAMPIONS, GUARDIANS, X-MEN and the INHUMANS as they clash with monstrous threats that threaten to destroy every corner of the Marvel Universe. Who are the LEVIATHONS? Who controls them? How can they be stopped before Earth becomes another tragic, barren world in their wake? Written by powerhouse writer Cullen Bunn and drawn by Marvel legend STEVE Mcniven, this issue is the beginning of something big that you just can’t miss!

Marvel’s “U.S. Avengers #1 State Variant Covers Are Here!

This coming January, Marvel Comics is releasing a new title called “U.S. Avengers” and according to its press copy below this sounds to be a very exciting title. The title is written by Al Ewing with art by Paco Medina. Check it out.

“In a world beset by danger, the United States of America needs a team of heroes they can rely on. Welcome to… American Intelligence Mechanics! A.I.M. will dare any danger — no matter how awesome that danger might be — to save their nation from the wildest, weirdest threats of all! The most patriotic super-group ever is here to save the day. And they’ll do it all looking tried & true in the red, white & blue! Can you live without…the U.S.Avengers?”

Marvel has also offered up a very unique presentation when it comes to the variant covers for this first issue. You see, there are going to be issues for every single state along with a couple of closely connected ties and when you connect them all in a row it represents the US Flag. I’ve secured the image of this for you just below. Isn’t it awesome.

All of these variants have been done by artist Rod Reis and I’ve painstakingly downloaded and prepped ALL of the numerous state variant covers to assist you in your collecting if you are “that fan” who wants a copy of each one. This post will also be helpful if you just need a visual reminder in tracking down your respective state at your local comic book shop. Enjoy the scrolling.
