Eternals the Comics! Jack Kirby Museum’s Rand Hoppe & Karen Charm of Comics XF

“When [Jack Kirby] came back to Marvel he was making Kirby comics, he was not making Marvel comics. And we’re the richer for it” -Rand Hoppe, Jack Kirby Museum

Jack Kirby’s 1977 comics series is a witty psychedelic saga about the Day of Judgement. Join Eternals experts for a look at Kirby’s underrated series historical context. Plus hear which other Eternals series we enjoy (and which you can skip).

Rand Hoppe had the idea for a non-profit devoted to Jack Kirby in 2004. Thanks to John Morrow from The Jack Kirby Collector and TwoMorrows Publishing and Jack’s daughter Lisa Kirby, the Jack Kirby Museum & Research Center was founded in 2005. https://kirbymuseum.org/

Karen Charm (they/them) is a cartoonist and life-long X-Men fan. They write a lot about Eternals for Comics XF, including putting together an Eternals Primer and providing issue recaps of the current series with Zoe Tunnell. @karen_xmenfan on Twitter

Black Panther Celebrates 200 Issues in January

This January, the third issue of Academy Award-winning writer John Ridley and artist Juann Cabal’s highly-anticipated run on Black Panther will also mark the character’s milestone 200th issue! To celebrate, Black Panther #3 will be an oversized issue with bonus stories celebrating the past and foreshadowing the future of the Black Panther and the world of Wakanda. Ridley will also introduce a new hero who rises up to protect the people of Wakanda while T’Challa finds his life and role as Black Panther thrown into turmoil! Fans will be able to witness the beginning of this new hero’s journey before seeing him become a key player of Ridley’s run in future issues.

In addition, the main story in the 200th issue of Black Panther will see T’Challa face off against the X-Men! With assassins closing in and Wakanda’s faith in him shaken, T’Challa goes to visit Storm on the newly terraformed Mars. But this will not be a happy reunion as T’Challa has ulterior motives for his visit. And back home, Shuri discovers who is behind the attacks on Wakanda’s secret agents — a revelation that will change everything.

Check out the covers by Alex Ross, Taurin Clarke, and Gary Frank now and pick up Black Panther #3 when it hits stands on January 26!

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

Ant #1 (Image Comics) – A new ongoing from Erik Larsen? We’re definitely intrigued to see where he takes this classic character.

She-Hulk Returns with Rainbow Rowell and Rogê Antônio

Marvel’s sensational powerhouse returns! One of comics’ most beloved heroes, Jennifer Walters, A.K.A. She-Hulk, will star in a new ongoing comic series starting in January. Written by acclaimed author Rainbow Rowell with art by Rogê Antônio, She-Hulk will see the character embark on a journey that heralds back to her fan-favorite solo adventures of the past while embracing a fresh new future for the character. Promising to be a delight for fans as well as newcomers to She-Hulk’s saga, the series will once again prove why Jennifer Walters is the greatest character around!

Following her transformative time in Jason Aaron’s AVENGERS, She-Hulk is eager to put her rage-filled days behind her and return to practicing law in defense of the innocent. She’s got a career to rebuild, friends to reconnect with (and maybe represent in a court of law) and enemies to…well, she may not want to connect with them, but they are DEFINITELY going to connect with her. And when a friend from her past comes knocking with a mystery she can’t resist, she’ll quickly be back to bashing. The last page of this debut issue is going to send Jen down a road she’s never traveled, one that will shake up her life and possibly the whole Marvel Universe.

A premiere issue so big it’ll have not one but two dazzling main covers—one by astounding cover artist Jen Bartel and another by comics legend Adam Hughes! Check them out below and be there when She-Hulk smashes her way into a new era on January 12!
