Marvel Reveals Alex Ross’ Cover for The Rise of Ultraman #1

After months of anticipation, Marvel has revealed The Rise of Ultraman #1 will release in comic shops this September! Featuring a stunning main cover from legendary artist Alex Ross, Marvel’s upcoming series will reimagine the classic beginnings of one of the biggest worldwide pop culture icons: ULTRAMAN!

Storytelling masters Kyle Higgins and Mat Groom, together with superstar artists Francesco Manna, Michael Cho, and Gurihiru will take fans back into the days of darkness, where the terrifying Kaiju lurk. When these unfathomable monsters threaten all life as we know it, the only thing standing in their way…is the United Science Patrol! Who are these enigmatic defenders, and how do they perform their miracles? Shin Hayata and Kiki Fuji have spent half a lifetime trying to find out – and their quest is about to drive them toward a decades-old dark secret and put them on a collision course with a mysterious warrior from beyond the stars!

Ultraman has been a pop culture staple since the franchise debuted in the 1960s, and his thrilling stories have been depicted on both the page and the screen. Now, Marvel Comics will be able to add to this iconic character’s legacy. Stay tuned for more details about what can you expect from Ultraman’s adventures when The Rise of Ultraman #1 hits stands this September!

This September Tony Stark Goes Back to Basics from writer Christopher Cantwell and artist CAFU

Iron Man #1

This September, Tony Stark will be going back to basics and putting the MAN back in Iron Man! Acclaimed writer and producer Christopher Cantwell and international superstar artist CAFU will be bringing Marvel readers a new age of iron, including an all-new suit of armor designed by legendary Marvel painter Alex Ross. Don’t miss your first look at the series in the Iron Man #1 trailer below!

Tony is putting away his high-tech toys and high-profile image so he can get his hands dirty again. But can he really lay that Stark-sized ego down?  Life isn’t always that simple, something that old friends and frustrating foes are quick to point out.  If you strip a billionaire down to his bolts, does he run solid…or just overheat? 

For answers to these questions, along with a thrilling new era of rock-solid super-heroic action and adventure, do not miss Iron Man #1 when it soars into comic shops this September!

Michael Turner Creations Debuts on Kickstarter

Aspen Comics has launched a Kickstarter campaign focused on their founder and superstar artist, the late Michael Turner. Michael Turner Creations is Aspen’s most ambitious publication to date.

Michael Turner Creations is a prestige format oversized hardcover with slipcase collecting all of Michael Turner’s iconic Aspen Comics work, highlighted by his flagship creations Fathom and Soulfire, as well as his work on the EkosPreview. This 600-plus page hardcover will include the entirety of Fathom and Soulfire volume one, the best-selling volumes of each respective series. In addition to the aforementioned material, the publisher is including a foreword by Michael Turner’s mother, Grace Crick, along with the founder of Marvel Studios’ David Maisel, the chief architect of the Turner-verse, the planned feature film slate by Mythos Studios based upon Turner’s work.  

Aspen has brought on some of their best-selling cover artists such as Siya Oum, Alex Konat, Jordan Gunderson, Talent Caldwell, and Tyler Kirkham, in addition to high-profile artists such as David Mack and Kendrick Lim for their first-ever Aspen covers, a variety of Michael Turner Creations dust jackets available exclusively in the Kickstarter campaign. Plus, the publisher will be offering a special signed dust jacket by legendary artist Alex Ross

For the first time in Aspen’s history, the publisher is opening up their vaulted Michael Turner original art collection from his personal sketchbook and offering a selection of original layouts, sketches and fully illustrated pieces drawn by Turner across multiple reward tiers. This selection of original art and sketches dates back to Turner’s classic Witchblade run and into his Fathom and Soulfire work, then into his later years on the iconic Marvel and DC Comics titles such as Civil War and Identity Crisis. Aspen strongly encourages interested Michael Turner Original Art buyers to finalize and select the reward tier of their choice as early as possible before they sell out.

The publisher is also debuting several new Aspen Comics merchandise including featured items such as a “Grace” from Soulfire plush doll, new Aspen Comics Fathom and Soulfire acrylic figures, Kickstarter exclusive comics, and several new Michael Turner related items and products for purchase as add-ons.

In the heart of the Civil War event, a human story unfolds. A S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, doing his best to do the job with honor—but is that even possible? A young, low-level Super Hero, trying to help his neighbors—but that’s not even legal any more. The two come together in a story that’ll test their commitment, ideals, hopes, and dreams.

Featuring Captain America, Giant-Man, Maria Hill, and more, Kurt Busiek recruits Hugo-Award-winning writer Saladin Ahmed and all-star Ryan Kelly to uniquely retell this iconic Marvel story.
