Marvel Announces Four New Printings

Four of Marvel’s biggest recent launches will be getting new printings! These currently sold out issues will be hitting stands on October 13th. Complete with new covers including a brand-new piece by Iban Coello for Dark Ages #1, these exciting new printings will give fans a chance to dive into the start of some of Marvel’s biggest upcoming stories!

Dark Ages #1 presents an all-new saga of the Marvel Universe as you’ve never seen it before from Tom Taylor and Iban Coello! This is what the Watcher has been watching for! A danger older than the Earth threatens everything. For once, the heroes who have saved the planet so many times are almost powerless in the face of it. X-Men and Avengers assemble. Spider-People and Fantastic Four come together. Heroes for Hire fight alongside Champions. None of it will be enough. The lights are about to go out. The world outside our window…is about to end.

Kyle Higgins and Juanan Ramírez start a new era of an all-new Darkhawk in Darkhawk #1. Connor Young is a seventeen-year-old star basketball player with the world ahead of him, until a surprising medical diagnosis changes everything. But what happens when a mysterious amulet finds him and gives him powers beyond belief? What will he do with these new abilities?

Darkhawk #1

Now in its third printing, the critically acclaimed Moon Knight #1 by Jed MacKay and Alessandro Cappuccio is the start of a brand-new journey for this complex and intriguing Marvel super hero. The mysterious Mr. Knight has opened his Midnight Mission, his people petitioning for protection from the weird and horrible. The Moon Knight stalks the rooftops and alleys marked with his crescent moon tag, bringing violence to any who would harm his people. Marc Spector, in whichever guise he dons, is back on the streets, a renegade priest of an unworthy god. But while Khonshu languishes in a prison that Moon Knight put him in, Moon Knight must still observe his duty: protecting those who travel at night. Let it be known – Moon Knight will keep the faith.

Moon Knight #1

And X-Men: Trial of Magneto #1 presents a mutant mystery that will shake Krakoa to its core! A horrific murder. A shocking revelation. A trial that will divide the new mutant nation. Leah Williams and Lucas Werneck bring you a new epic that threatens the Reign of X and will upend the world of mutants. The truth is hidden, the danger is far from over, and the trial has begun.

Darkhawk Returns in April to Reclaim His Destiny

One of Marvel’s most popular 90s creations, Darkhawk will return in April in a special giant-sized celebration issue. Honoring the iconic hero’s 30th anniversary, Darkhawk: Heart of the Hawk will feature three spectacular tales from all-star creative teams including Darkhawk’s creators: writer Danny Fingeroth and artist Mike Manley. This action-packed issue will celebrate Darkhawk’s legacy, explore his defining eras, and set up the hero up for his bright Marvel Comics future.

When teenager Chris Powell discovered a mysterious amulet, he was transformed into the armored spacefaring hero known as Darkhawk. Now, Danny Fingeroth and Mike Manley reunite to revisit the beginning of Darkhawk’s saga.

Next up, writer Dan Abnett, known for penning Darkhawk’s years as a cosmic adventurer during his “War of Kings” epic, returns to Marvel Comics with a thrilling story, featuring art by Andrea Di Vito.

Finally, Kyle Higgins sets the stage for Darkhawk’s future adventures.

From street-level vigilante to cosmic defender, Darkhawk has proven to be one of Marvel’s most unpredictable and resilient heroes. See what’s next to come for this beloved character when Darkhawk: Heart of the Hawk #1 hits stands in April. It features a cover by Inhyuk Lee.

Darkhawk: Heart of the Hawk #1

Review: Darkhawk #51

Years ago, Chris Powell discovered a mysterious amulet that allowed him to transform into the spacefaring gladiator known as DARKHAWK. With his newfound edge against crime, he stood against some of the most extreme threats the Marvel Universe has to offer! Now, when two members of the Fraternity of Raptors descend on New York with designs on stealing the amulet and returning it to the stars, it’s not Darkhawk who has to rise to the challenge…it’s Chris Powell!

With these Marvel Legacy one-shots, Marvel is testing the waters to see readers’ reactions and if any of them should continue on in some way. Out of all of them that I’ve read so far, Darkhawk #51 makes the best case it should continue on.

Written by Chad Bowers and Chris Sims Darkhawk #51 is actually better in many ways than a lot of the regular ongoing series Marvel’s currently printing. Bowers and Sims pull off the issue not only catching up readers but also making the comic accessible for new readers as well. You don’t need to have read the previous fifty issues, the issue has everything you need in one issue and then some. It feels like a first issue in many ways and the premise presented fills a gap and adds to one of the weaker elements of Marvel right now, their cosmic offerings. At one point a half dozen comics covered that side of the Marvel Universe resulting in epic stories and this issue feels like it’s the start of that in many ways.

But, more important than the set-up is the writing team’s focus on Chris Powell. This isn’t just about him as Darkhawk but his relationships are too. He’s engaged, his father’s history is explored, how that impacts his position in the police department. There’s a lot packed in and in one issue we get a hell of a lot of character development.

The art by Kev Walker is top notch. For a one-shot the art isn’t shorted here and if things were to continue, I’d love to see Walker continue. There’s some solid action and page layouts. The art is actually better than some of the regular ongoing series. It just clicks bringing a mix of slice of life and action.

I’ve enjoyed some of the one-shots released so far but this one makes the case it should continue and makes you question why it’s taken so long for this series to pick up again.
