Our Marvel Previews For July 2021 is a continuation of a monthly series that has been on hiatus since late last year.
Here’s a quick look at some of the books you can expect this Summer from the House of Ideas.
Amazing Fantasy gets a reboot with a new 5-issue series featuring Black Widow, teenage Spider-Man, World War 2 Captain America, and other heroes, that find themselves transported to an island that is cloaked in mystery. Written by Kaare Andrews, this looks like a Lost type of story, but with Marvel heroes.
Sinister War is a 4-issue Spidey series from Nick Spencer and Mark Bagely and sees Doctor Octopus with a new Sinister Six team, however, the Vulture has ideas of his own, and forms the Savage Six, causing a supervillain war.
Extreme Carnage #1 is a one-shot from Phillip Kennedy Johnson that follows in the footsteps of The King in Black, just in case you haven’t had enough of symbiotes yet. Along with this title, you can expect one-shots featuring Scream and Phage too.
X-Men, of course, has another issue #1, written by Gerry Duggan, and with relations between Krakoa and the rest of the world, the X-Men are here to save the planet, whether you want them or not.
Moon Knight gets another series, probably due to interest in the character after recent news of the character being optioned, and Jed Mackay brings us a new run, with Mr. Knight opening a midnight mission and protecting his followers or something. expect a slew of variants, and a facsimile edition of Werewolf By Night #32, the first appearance of Moon Knight, now worth a pretty penny if you can find one in the wild.
More Symbiote shenanigans with 5-issue mini-series Symbiote Spider-Man: Crossroads by Peter David and Greg Land. Spider-Man in black costume is on a collision course with The Hulk.
Aliens Aftermath #1 will be on the shelves, and you can find our preview of this book here.
Other noteworthy books for July include X-Men Legends #5, which sees Peter David taking a classic look at X-Factor, caught in a trap in the Latverian Embassy, that takes place between issues #75 and #76 of the original run. Fantastic Four #34 promises the biggest change to a team member since issue #1 — spoilers, it’s Human Torch, at the conclusion of “The Bride of Doom” storyline. Guardians of the Galaxy begins “The Last Annihilation” with issue #16 by Al Ewing and Juan Frigeri, and Immortal Hulk #48 continues the countdown to the end of the series, with the return of Red Harpy.
That’s the Marvel round-up for July.
