Marvel Sends Four Comics Back to Print

Four of Marvel’s hottest titles will be getting new printings! These currently sold out hit issues will be hitting stands on October 27. Complete with new covers, these exciting new printings will give fans a chance to dive into some of Marvel’s biggest current stories!

Writers Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing and artist Carlos Magno continue to unravel the true origins of one of Marvel’s most complex villains in Kang the Conqueror #2. A young, rebellious and idealistic Kang finds himself in Ancient Egypt, where an older version of himself is ruling with an iron fist as the pharaoh Rama-Tut. When the Moon Knight draws young Kang into a battle against his future self, tragedy strikes. But will it knock Nathaniel off the course of his destiny or lock him into one path forever?

Kang the Conqueror #2

Writer Jed MacKay and artist Alessandro Cappuccio’s critically acclaimed hit run on one of Marvel’s most fascinating super heroes continues in Moon Knight #3 where Moon Knight faces off against a mysterious new enemy. Moon Knight has taken on Khonshu’s duty as his own. To the people he protects, this is a blessing. To Hunter’s Moon, this is sacrilege. It is no small thing, to betray a god and take on his role. And when the Fist of Khonshu offers shelter to vampires, the ancient enemies of the Moon God? The Moon Knight requires correction, and Hunter’s Moon will bring him back to the right path — whatever it might take. Check out the new cover by Steve McNiven.

Moon Knight #3 2nd Printing

Witness the final chapter of Stephen Strange in Death of Doctor Strange #1 by writer Jed MacKay and artist Lee Garbett. He defends our planet from the supernatural and interdimensional threats no other hero is equipped to handle. But what happens when he unexpectedly dies? Who will step in to protect Earth and keep the mystical evils at bay? And most importantly…who killed Stephen Strange?! From the looks of the new second printing cover, this mystery is just beginning…

And tensions were raised in X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #2 by writer Leah Williams and artist Lucas Werneck. When the Avengers come to Krakoa to retrieve the body of their fallen teammate, the Scarlet Witch, an epic fight between Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Magneto. And with a shocking final page, this mutant murder mystery just got a whole lot more complicated! The second printing features a cover by Valerio Schiti.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

FIST OF THE NORTH STAR HC VOL 02

Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in

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.

Adventures of the Mad Tsar (Black Panel Press) – Collecting the three volume French graphic novel about a deposed Tsar who’s replaced with a lookalike. Watch our review.

Aquaman: The Becoming #1 (DC Comics) – We know the character has a big future ahead in the DC Universe, so we’re intrigued how he gets there.

Barb the Last Berzerker Vol. 1 (Simon & Schuster) – Barb is a Berzerker and will need to defeat Witch Head to save her friends and land.

Batman #113/Batman Secret Files: Miracle Molly #1 (DC Comics) – “Fear State” has been solid so far and Miracle Molly and intriguing new addition to the characters of Gotham. We’re excited to dive into each new chapter of this solid “Bat Event”.

Bunny Mask #4 (AfterShock) – A nice mix of horror and psychological mystery, the series has us guessing what will happen next and what’s going on.

Death of Doctor Strange #1 (Marvel) – Yes, we know this is only until the next movie but we’d be lying if we weren’t intrigued, especially since Marvel seems to be all over in their focus on the “magical” side of their comic universe.

Eat the Rich #2 (BOOM! Studios) – An outsider enters the world of the rich… who might be cannibals?!

Fist of the North Star Vol. 2 (VIZ Media) – A new edition of the classic manga series in a nice hardback cover. It’s a martial arts version of Mad Max and a lot of fun.

Frontiersman #1 (Image Comics) – An intriguing new series about a former superhero coaxed out of retirement by an environmentalist group. As a spokesperson, old enemies return and new enemies make him a target.

Moon Knight #3 (Marvel) – The lack of focus on Moon Knight’s Jewish roots is a bit frustrating (a Jewish hero “enslaved” by an Egyptian God writes itself) but the series has been impressive. A new villain shows a lot of potential as the character’s status quo gets shaken up before his show debuts.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin #4 (IDW Publishing) – It’s been a bit but we’re excited for the series’ return and our return to the world of the last Turtle.

X-Men: Onslaught Revelation #1 (Marvel) – Onslaught. Nuff said.

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.

Review: Moon Knight #2

Moon Knight #2

What’s a rather disgusting way that someone could control someone? How about by having drops of sweat contaminate their water. Moon Knight #2 breaks the question of why the elderly mob was all under the control of one mind, as Moon Knight cracks that problem by discovering the building’s janitor has the ability to control others through his sweat. There’s still someone in the shadows that’s out to get Moon Knight but that’s a tale for another issue.

Moon Knight is a character that works very well in a supernatural world so pairing him with a vampire assistant actually kinda works. I don’t know how I feel with there being an issue between Khonshu and MK. It feels like every volume of this title has this trope and it gets old but for now, it’s not presenting any storytelling problems. Having Marc Spector in full control works for me. I do kind of feel like being an older Marvel fan and reader of Moon Knight that I’m having to adapt to a lot of changes to the world he exists in but nothing feels like a negative. I like what Jed MacKay is doing here, establishing what feels like a normal version of Marc and putting him in what almost feels like a position that Daredevil would be in: a savior to those who need him and one that people can easily reach. Also, I thought the sequence where Marc tastes the sweat, gross as it was, led to a really powerful moment showcasing what you get when you cross the ex-Avenger. It’s a subtle but awesome reminder that Moon Knight is a bad-ass.

Alessandro Cappuccio’s art is reminisce to me of an early Jae Lee and I think it rocks on a book like Moon Knight. I think an art style like this could really pay off if this books gets really deep into things like vampires or even Marc’s association with werewolves and other supernatural threats. It’s dark and brooding and there’s something almost fearsome in the eyes of the possessed in this issue. And again, back to the moment Moon Knight defeated the poisonous janitor, the visuals were impressive. Great colors by Rachelle Rosenberg and Cory Petit’s letters continue to work. And I hope we continue to see Steve McNiven covers as I thought this issue had a great cover.

I was really happy with Moon Knight #2. He’s one of my favorite Marvel characters. I think most of the Moon Knight runs always start with a lot of promise and great execution, but then after a year or two just become something rather unremarkable. I hope Marvel and even Jed MacKay can continue to give us issues like this one because I know it’s a character with a bigger future ahead and a loyal fanbase that want these adventures to continue. I definitely think this is an issue to read.
