Marvel Action: Origins Delivers a starting point to the Marvel Universe for Middle-Grade Readers

Share the most important moments in Marvel history with young fans, two tales at a time, with Marvel Action: Origins, the thrilling new series in IDW’s line of comics aimed at middle-grade readers. Written by Christopher Eliopoulos and illustrated by rising star Lanna Souvanny, the first monthly issue will debut in December.

In Marvel Action: Origins #1, experience the earliest adventures of everyone’s favorite teenage webhead and Mad Titan! Discover how a science exhibit and a radioactive bite changed Peter Parker into Spider-Man, and what dark motivations set the Avengers’ most dangerous enemy, Thanos, on his path of universal conquest. Subsequent issues will focus on the Hulk, Ghost-Spider, Venom, and more!

Each issue of Marvel Action: Origins will feature three cover editions for fans to enjoy: Cover A by series artist Lanna Souvanny spotlighting the issue’s hero, Cover B (also by Souvanny) spotlighting the issue’s villain, and a Retailer Incentive edition by Agnes Garbowska.
