Magneto Undertakes a New Mission in Giant-Size X-Men from Jonathan Hickman and Ben Oliver

When Giant-Size X-Men hits stands next year, X-Men fans will get to see Jonathan Hickman’s bold vision for mutantkind unfold in epic adventures told by the industry’s most acclaimed artists. These large-scale but standalone stories will be specifically designed to highlight the artist’s talents, and each issue will focus on a specific character. This March, Hickman will team up with legendary artist Ben Oliver to turn the spotlight on the master of magnetism, Magneto!

Created by Stan Lee himself, Magneto’s been a fixture in the X-Men mythos since the very beginning. Although he debuted in 1963’s X-MEN #1 as the X-Men’s premiere supervillain, he eventually became one of their fiercest members. Under Chris Claremont’s pen, Magneto was equipped with a tragic backstory, shedding light on his motivations and developing him into one of the most complex characters in the Marvel Universe. An unrelenting champion for mutantkind, Magneto once again finds himself leading a mutant nation, but this time, he has all of mutantkind including the X-Men standing at his side. Determined to make this new dream of Krakoa prosper, Magneto must now make dealings with his former sworn enemy— humanity!

Giant-Size X-Men: Magneto will be the second of five essential one-shots with the first, Giant-Size X-Men: Hean Grey and Emma Frost debuting in February. Uniting Jonathan Hickman with the best artists in the industry, these stories are destined to be instant classics that fans won’t want to miss! Stay tuned for upcoming announcements about more Giant-Size X-Men issues coming your way next year and which of your favorite artists will be showcased next!

Giant-Size X-Men: Magneto

Warren Ellis’ James Bond Reprinted in Two Ways!

Dynamite has announced two special versions of Warren Ellis‘ iconic James Bond comics for release in February. Collecting all of Ellis’ espionage epic together in one oversized hardcover volume is the James Bond: The Complete Warren Ellis Omnibus. Included inside are the entire 12 issues that kicked off Bond’s epic return to comic books in 2015, by one of the greatest writers of the medium and instant star South African artist Jason Masters. In addition to the critically acclaimed VARGR and Eidolon story arcs, every single cover is included, from the likes of Jock, Francesco Francavilla, Dominic Reardon, Joe Jusko, Ben Oliver, Glenn Fabry, Dan Panosian, Robert Hack, and more.

For fans who have never picked up a James Bond comic and want a taste test, or veterans who’d like to revisit that joyful feeling of reading the authentic Fleming-inspired spy tales for the first time, Dynamite is also releasing a Dynamite Dollar Edition of the original first issue. Advertising within the issue will direct fans who can’t get enough to check out the omnibus volume and further Bond case files, such as the current series by writers Vita Ayala, Danny Lore, and artist Eric Gapstur.

This globetrotting adventure takes Bond from his native Britain to Helsinki, Berlin, Los Angeles and further. Ostensibly tasked with breaking up a drug-trafficking operation, the entire scheme unravels with unexpected variables galore. Can Bond break through the political mist and accomplish his mission, let alone survive?

The Army of Darkness Faces an Army of Ash Williams in February

Death to the Army of Darkness

Ash Williams is back in a new series, Death to the Army of Darkness, in February from Dynamite – but wait, there are more Ash Williams?!

The “Chosen One” has had enough of that nonsense, but gets way more than he bargained for when Ashley Joanna Williams suddenly splinters into multiple differing clones. And each is packing the same over the top personality as the original! Writer Ryan Parrott has concocted this comedy-horror extravaganza alongside artist Jacob Edgar. Their groovy crew is completed with colorist Kike J. Díaz and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou – who must have cloned himself to double as one of the best letterers and an Eisner-winning critic! 

Picking up just barely after the legendary Army of Darkness film, the big mixup is of course due to some classic bad translation of the Necronomicon. Introducing the cast… Ash is joined by the personification of his feminine side with Ashley Williams, the erratic Lil’ Ash, Dash aka Doggie Ash, the cynical and morose Skeleton Ash and Chainy – Ash’s now sentient chainsaw! 

Together they must travel through time to Ancient Egypt and prevent the Necronomicon from ever being written in the first place. Along the way, can Ash solve his split personality predicament – and how would the others feel about that? Could one of the party members be hiding something? Fans will just have to read to find out!

To celebrate all these fun new characters, Dynamite has enlisted its own wacky crew of cover artists. Ben Oliver leads the pack, perfectly capturing the attitudes of each of Ash’s new compatriots. The “Zombie King” himself, Arthur Suydam is a natural addition to the team. Mirka Andolfo brings her signature style. Fans can also be on the lookout for a special Valentine’s variant by Sebastián Píriz and a remastered Icon incentive cover featuring J. Scott Campbell‘s piece from Dynamite’s first-ever Army of Darkness comic book 15 years ago!
