Marvel Promotes College Football with ESPN

This January, ESPN will host the first ever College Football Playoff – and the television channel is teaming up with Marvel to promote the occasion! Only one team can be crowned champion, but which teams will make the playoff? Ultimately, a twelve-person selection committee will decide. But until then, there will be lots of campaigning from the schools and teams still in the hunt.

Marvel has released a first look at the College Football Playoff on ESPN “IN” Variant Covers that will grace the front of 8 special Marvel titles in January!

Why the cross-promotion between ESPN and Marvel? That’d be parent company Disney. Both Marvel and ESPN are owned by the house of the mouse. You can see what else Disney owns at this handy list. We look forward to the future How to Get Away With Murder graphic novels… It’ll also be interesting to see what promotion for Marvel appears on ESPN (if any).

There’s also irony that after a month of variants to highlight anti-bullying efforts, a sport which is having massive PR issues for abuse of women, a cover up of abuse, charges of rape, and more, is now getting variant covers.

Available only in comic shops in the month of January, these eight exciting Marvel titles are “IN” for the College Football Playoff on ESPN:

  • All-New Captain America #3 – 1/7/15
  • Amazing Spider-Man #12 – 1/7/15
  • Ant-Man #1 – 1/7/15
  • Avengers #40 – 1/7/15
  • Hawkeye Vs. Deadpool #4 – 1/7/15
  • Hulk #10 - 1/7/15
  • Legendary Star-Lord #7 – 1/7/15
  • The Punisher #14 – 1/7/15

Check out the Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War Teaser Trailer

During Marvel‘s big movie announcement yesterday, a teaser trailer was shown for 2018 and 2019’s Avengers: Infinity War, including a solid look at Thanos with the Infinity Guantlet. Even though no recording was allowed, you knew someone would, and here’s one of the results of that.

The video is mostly footage from previous films, but, it has us pumped!

Here’s the full Marvel press release:

The Avengers have already triumphed over Loki, and next summer they’ll face Ultron…but nothing could prepare them for the menace of Thanos.

How big of a threat does Thanos pose, you ask? Big enough to span two epic films, beginning with Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War Part 1” on May 4, 2018, and concluding in Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War Part 2” on May 3, 2019 for one massive cinematic event.

“We’ve always had a plan since Nick Fury broke into Tony Stark’s house and told him he’s part of a bigger universe,” recalled Feige. “‘Avengers: Infinity War Part 1′ is the beginning of the culmination of everything that has come before.”

Hold onto your hats, True Believers, because Phase 3 of the Cinematic Universe is going to be one wild ride! Stay tuned to Marvel.com for the latest on the Avengers and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as it develops!

 

And two screencaps to check out.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

memetic_001_coveraWednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in! Below are ten suggestions of comics, graphic novels, or trade paperbacks you should spend some extra time checking out and think about picking up. And this is a week that this list could easily be double the size.

Pick of the Week: Memetic #1 (BOOM! Studios) – BOOM! teased us the hypno-sloth, and this week the world gets to see what it’s finally about. Writer James Tynion IV has been rocking it with The Woods, and we can’t wait to see what he does next.

Arkham Manor #1 (DC Comics) – DC Comics has shaken things up with two recent out-of-the-box releases in the revamped Batgirl and Gotham Academy. Can they go 3 for 3 with this one?

Avengers #37 (Marvel) – The jump ahead in time has been fascinating, and there feels like something big is coming. This has been teased for quite some time, and we finally are seeing the master plan pay off for Marvel’s Avengers line of comics.

The Delinquents #3 (Valiant) – Take Archer & Armstrong and have them team up with Quantum & Woody. The result is a hilarious comic that’s beyond fun and entertaining.

Dungeons & Dragons: Legends of Baldurs Gate #1 (IDW Publishing) – Jim Zub tackles a refreshed Dungeons & Dragons. There brand is back and more popular than ever. Looking forward to seeing what Zub does, especially since he’s shown off his fantasy talents with similar titles Skullkickers and Pathfinder.

Letter 44 #11 (Oni Press) – Writer Charles Soule continues to brilliantly mix politics and science fiction. Every issue is fantastic, both entertaining and thought provoking.

Southern Dog #2 (Action Lab Entertainment) – It seems like forever since we read the first issue of this series, and we finally get a chance to read the second. Mix werewolves with the South, and you get an interesting story!

Stumptown Vol. 3 #2 (Oni Press) – We love noir/detective stories, and Greg Rucka‘s Stumptown has never disappointed.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters #1 (IDW Publishing) – Two of our favorite things to come out of the 80s come together!

The Walking Dead #133 (Skybound) – The end of last issue…. nuff said.

Marvel and Stomp Out Bullying Team for Variants and Awareness Program

SOB-logo1select_color_V4Marvel is enlisting its biggest Super Heroes to bring added awareness of the problems of bullying. This October, Marvel will join forces with STOMP Out Bullying, the leading national bullying and cyberbullying prevention organization for kids and teens in the U.S., to launch a special variant cover program to commemorate National Bullying Prevention Month and support STOMP’s relentless efforts to stop this growing epidemic. Throughout the month of October, the world’s most popular Super Heroes – Captain America, The Avengers, The Guardians of the Galaxy and more — will be featured on all-new variant covers to spotlight both National Bullying Prevention Month and STOMP’s Blue Shirt Day World Day of Bullying Prevention.  The variant issues will be available exclusively at comic shops.

STOMP Out Bullying focuses on reducing and preventing bullying, cyberbullying, sexting and other digital abuse, educating against homophobia, racism and hatred, decreasing school absenteeism, and deterring violence in schools, online and in communities across the country. It teaches effective solutions on how to respond to all forms of bullying. It educates kids and teens in school and online, provides  help for those in need and at risk of suicide, raises awareness, conducts peer mentoring programs in schools, creates and distributes public service announcements by noted celebrities, and engages in social media campaigns. An additional focus educates parents on how to keep their children safe and responsible online.

In 2008, the organization created Blue Shirt Day World Day of Bullying Prevention to signify the importance and bring awareness to the fight to stop bullying and cyberbullying. Taking place the first Monday of October – this year on October 6, 2014 – Blue Shirt Day World Day of Bullying Prevention is designed as a sign of solidarity against bullying by having kids, teens and adults wear blue and make that the day that bullying prevention is heard around the world.

The following comic books, on-sale in October, will feature special STOMP Out Bullying variant covers:

  • Rocket Raccoon #4
  • Guardians of the Galaxy #20
  • Avengers #36
  • Inhuman #7
  • Hulk #7
  • Captain America #25
  • Legendary Star-Lord #4
