Preview: More Sins. More Secrets. A First Look at Original Sin Annual #1!

This October, the devastating secrets of the Marvel Universe continue to spill out in the upcoming Original Sin Annual #1! Critically acclaimed writer Jason Latour and newcomer Enis Cisic expose the never before told history of Woodrow McCord – the enigmatic world protector who heroically gave his life to protect Earth during Original Sin.

Protecting the planet as the mysterious “man on the wall,” McCord answered to no man, shaping the course and history of the Marvel Universe in secret. Though he met his grim end, his legacy lives on through those who followed his path – Nick Fury and now Bucky Barnes, the Winter Soldier. Fighting battles too big for anyone on Earth, squaring off against aliens, gods and monsters. Not because he wanted to, but because no one else could.

In an interview with Marvel.com, Latour said:

The job is getting out there rattling cages, getting in the heads of people who want to harm Earth. Stopping trouble before it starts, by any means necessary. In the eyes of a lot of these more belligerent alien races, the Earth was ripe for the picking. It was a silent, shadow war and for quite a while McCord was the only soldier we had.

Witness the secret history of one of the Marvel Universe’s greatest architects, fighting a lonely, endless war. Protecting the human race in secret, did he lose his own humanity in the process? Be there when Latour and Cisic bring you the bombastic, untold sci-fi pulp story of Woodrow McCord, savior of the Marvel Universe in Original Sin Annual #1!

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Death_of_Wolverine_1_CoverWednesdays 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! Below are ten suggestions of comics, graphic novels, or trade paperbacks you should spend some extra time checking out and think about picking up.

Pick of the Week: Death of Wolverine #1 (Marvel) -Its been months of teasing and build up, but we’re finally at the point where Wolverine (may) die. I’m still not sure if this isn’t more of a philosophical death than physical, but we will see courtesy of Charles Soule and Steve McNiven.

A1 Presents: Carpe Diem Vol. 1: I Hate Mondays (Titan Comics) – If you caught the short stories in the previous A1 Presents releases, you’ll know how hilarious and entertaining this comic is. If you missed that, here’s your chance to find out!

Cloaks #1 (BOOM! Studios) – A street illusionist entertains folks with his magic, but also steals from corrupt Wall Street bankers with it too. Still a somewhat timely subject, it’ll be interesting to see how the comic handles the continuing political issue.

The Death-Defying Dr. Mirage #1 (Valiant) – Valiant has one of the best comic universes out there right now, and this new Dr. Mirage finally gets the spotlight in this four issue mini-series.

Ex Con #1 (Dynamite) – Duane Swierczynski’s creator driven comic from Dynamite.

Kill My Mother (Liverlight) – Veteran cartoonist Jules Feiffer combines dizzyingly good pictures with a bizarre tale.

Lumberjanes #5 (BOOM! Studios/BOOM! Box) – One of the best, and most fun comics on the market right now. And it doesn’t hurt it’s one of the most diverse group of characters too.

The Names #1 (Vertigo) -A new 8 issue series from Peter Milligan and Vertigo. It’s a dark, contemporary thriller set in the world of Big Money: hedge funds, leveraged buyouts, market raids, flash crashes. High-end finance that can ruin entire economies, run by a cabal of the world’s richest (and sickest) people.

Original Sin #8 (Marvel) – Marvel’s summer event wraps up. There should be some ramifications for things going forward after this ends.

She-Hulk #8 (Marvel) -One of Marvel’s best comics on the market. It perfectly mixes humor, action, and She-Hulk trying to live a normal life.

Preview: Party Like It’s 1992 in Deadpool #34 – a Tie-In to Original Sin!

Preview: Judgment! A First Look at Original Sin #8 – the Final Issue!

It’s all been building to this! Marvel has released a first look at Original Sin #8 – the epic final issue from creators Jason Aaron and Mike Deodato! The truth behind Dr. Midas’ gambit, Old Nick Fury’s betrayal, the evolution of the Orb and the secrets the Watcher held will be revealed as the remaining pieces of the puzzle fall into place in this can’t miss finale!

Drained of the Infinity Formula, Nick Fury is dying. Aging rapidly and uncontrollably. In his time as the “man on the wall,” he has survived protecting Earth in secret against monsters, demons and other unseen threats. Yet even he cannot escape old age. But the battle-hardened former director of S.H.I.E.L.D. will not go down without a fight! He’ll fight to his last breath to protect the Marvel Universe from what’s coming – even if it means going through the Avengers to do it!

Yet nothing could prepare them for what’s next. Amidst the chaos and rage of battle, more Watchers have descended upon the moon! Not to observe, but to render judgment on Uatu’s killer! This is it – all your questions will be answered! And the Marvel Universe will tremble at the truth!

Who will watch us now? Don’t miss the heart-stopping conclusion that will leave the Marvel Universe torn asunder! Open your eyes wide when Original Sin #8 hits comic shops and digital devices in September!

Everybody has one. This is Marvel’s ORIGINAL SIN!
