Marvel Previews for November 2019: X-Men, The Negative Zone, and Absolute Carnage
Jonathon Hickman’s reboot of the X franchise is in full swing by November and you can look for a few new titles. X-Force, New Mutants and Fallen Angels all get first and second issues, meanwhile, X-Men by Hickman, Excalibur by Tini Howard and Marauders by Gerry Duggan all hit issue #2. There’s another facsimile edition, X-Men #266 (first Gambit) out, and if Dan Didio is to be believed, they sell better than most new titles so expect more and more on the shelves.
Meanwhile, something is stirring in The Negative Zone, so look for Annihilation Scourge Alpha #1 with Nova taking center stage. This one-shot looks like the set up for a new event in December — don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Carnage overload continues in November, there’s a whole slew of Absolute Carnage tie ins available including the final fifth issue of the actual series. Look for Weapon Plus #1, a one-shot by Jed Mackay, a Captain Marvel one-shot, Scream Curse of Carnage #1 (that’s a new ongoing by Clay McCleod Chapman with 5 variant covers) and Venom issue #20 that may tie things up, or not, who knows?
Marvel Previews for November 2019: The Future of Marvel
One event ends, another begins, and Marvel is returning to the world of 2099 with a list of one-shots and tie ins featuring the future of Marvel — there’s a book I would read right now. Tie ins are Amazing Spider-Man #33, #34 and #35. One-offs are Fantastic Four 2099, Punisher 2099, Conan 2099, Ghost Rider 2099, Doom 2099, and Venom 2099. Buy em all kids.
Would you believe there’s a new Deadpool ongoing out in November? Written by Kelly Thompson with art by Chris Bachalo expect high jinks and wall breaks as Deadpool goes after King Of The Monsters, insert name here.
Morbius starts his new run by Vita Ayala, and old pointy teeth continues his search for a cure, thereby rendering him redundant in the Marvel Universe forever — go figure.
Yondu from Guardians gets a 5-issue mini-series by Lonnie Nadler; Punisher Soviet is a 6-issue mini by Garth Ennis that might be worth a look.
Marvel Previews for November 2019: Spider-Man!
As usual, there’s a huge amount of Spidey on offer, I wonder if that will die down with the recent news of his departure from the MCU? Look just now for the 3rd issue of the JJ Abrams mini-series, and if you think you know what’s going to happen to Peter and Mary J… sorry, I zoned out there. The Amazing Mary Jane hits issue #2, surprisingly, Velocity gets to number 4 of 5, and Ryan North presents Spider-Verse #2 of 6 where Aunt May gets spider powers — yes, I know. Ghost Spider gets to issue #4 against The Jackal, Miles Morales hits issue #12 with Miles caught in the middle of a war, Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man is at #14, with one of the worst covers I have ever seen. Black Cat sneaks to issue #6 and gets an annual too. Finally, Spider-Man Venom Double trouble is a 4-issue mini by Mariko Tamaki, with the duo in a mind swap storyline that you would think the editors would have had enough of already.
Marvel Previews for November 2019: On-Goings
The usual ongoings this month include Ghost Rider #2 by Ed Brisson, Doom #2 by Christopher Cantwell, FF #16 by Dan Slott is Part 3 of “Point Of Origin”, with The Thing against the Horde from Freak Alley. Web Of Black Widow continues with issue #3 of 5 of the series hoping to ride the movie news wave, Immortal Hulk gets to #26 and #27 and Bruce goes to war with YOU! Well not just you, but everyone. The Avengers are at the same numbering and #26 has art from Dale Keown, Loki #5 guest stars Wolverine, Valkyrie #5 ends the first story arc, apparently, and “The Ultron Agenda” fumbles onward in Tony Stark Iron Man #18, and in issue #12 of Captain Marvel by Kelly Thompson, the good Captain is out to kill the Avengers; the irony. Captain America #16 has the death of a cop igniting trouble for our hero, and Black Panther by the same writer. Ta-Nehisi Coates, explains how The Panther fell from grace, the terrible cover of this issue doesn’t help. Squirrel Girl #50 is the final issue of the series, just in case anyone out there was actually buying it. Daredevil #13 by Chip Zdarsky continues to be brilliant, buy this instead of the now-canceled Squirrel comic.
I will be grabbing Daredevil, Hulk, Tom Scioli’s Fantastic Four Grand Design and Absolute Carnage #5, everything else I will flick through in the shop — don’t judge, I’ve seen you do it.
