Preview: The Fate of Rich Rider Revealed! A First Look at Guardians of the Galaxy #18!

This August, the burning question will finally be answered as the shocking truth about one of the Marvel Universe’s greatest heroes is revealed in Guardians of the Galaxy #18 – a tie-in to Original Sin! Superstar creators Brian Michael Bendis and Ed McGuinness team for the heart-stopping answer to the question on everyone’s mind:

What happened to Rich Rider?

In an interview with Marvel.com, Bendis said:

We have literally been dropping hints since the Guardians guest-starred in Avengers Assemble. I have known exactly what we were doing with this from the moment I agreed to do the book, but I thought it would be best to slow burn the reveal.

Nova, the Human Rocket – who once burned a bright streak across the Marvel Universe, gone in a flash. Side-by-side with Star-Lord, Richard Rider fought valiantly to save the universe from Thanos. Left sealed in a twisted and horrific version of our own universe, Richard Rider sacrificed everything to save us.

Now, the truth of that sacrifice will finally come to light! Thanos and Star-Lord miraculously reappeared, but Nova was nowhere to be found. The true story about what happened has remained a closely guarded secret between two bitter enemies. Now, thanks to the events of Original Sin, the truth is about to come out!  What happened to Rich Rider in the Cancerverse? How did Star-Lord and Thanos escape their hellish imprisonment?  And most importantly, why did they lie about it?

The explosive last stand of Rich Rider begins when Original Sin comes knocking in Guardians of the Galaxy #18!

Preview: The Secret Time Traveling Tale of Eva Bell Revealed in Uncanny X-Men Annual #1!

This December, spinning directly out of the pages of the New York Times Bestselling Uncanny X-Men, superstar writer Brian Michael Bendis teams with critically-acclaimed artist Andrea Sorrentino to finally answer one of the burning questions on fan’s minds – what happened to Eva Bell?! Revealed this past weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, the answers you’ve been waiting for are in the oversized Uncanny X-Men Annual #1 – and the accidental adventures of the young, time-travelling X-Man will shock you!

In an interview with Marvel.com, Bendis said:

It is the utmost grandest X-Men tradition to have your mutant power be the coolest thing about you and the scariest thing. It was only a matter of time before [Eva] was thrust into a situation that revealed the scary side of time related powers.

Unable to fully control her powers, Eva Bell, Codename: Tempus had disappeared in the blink of an eye during an X-Men training mission. Though she re-appeared moments later, she had aged many years. Trapped in her own time bubble, Tempus embarked on a journey into the far future of the Marvel Universe. A journey that would change the young X-Man forever! This oversized annual also marks the first ever Marvel project for critically acclaimed artist Andrea Sorrentino (Green Arrow).

How long was Eva trapped inside her temporal sphere? What horrors did she witness in an uncertain and dangerous future? And more importantly – why would she keep it a secret from her teammates? All will be revealed when Eva Bell takes center stage in Bendis and Sorrentino’s Uncanny X-Men Annual #1 – and she’ll never be the same again!
