FIRE POWER #1 ON SALE IN AUGUST WILL FEATURE NEW COVER ART07/02/20 @ 1:05 pm EST
will have a huge effect on the Marvel Universe as a whole, but it will also have a much more personal effect on certain characters, at least from the description of one of the bigger tie-in issues. That would be Captain Marvel, which will see Carol and her friends becoming a new team of Accusers under the new King, who happens to be Hulkling. The description to Captain Marvel
#21 actually lays out a bit of the big finale to the arc, teasing the end of the war overall but also the birth of an even more dangerous world. That said, the biggest takeaway is the tease that Carol will have to make a choice that "defines her life and the lives of those closest to her", which could mean someone doesn't make it through, and the cover only adds fuel to the fire.
Now, this could also just mean that the choice will have long term ramifications for part of her team, which includes War Machine, Spider-Woman, and Hazmat. All three are important to Carol, and she might have to make a choice that negatively affects at least one of them. (via ComicBook
#21 hits comic stores later this year, and the arc kicks off in Captain Marvel
#18, which hits stores soon.

MARK RUSSELL'S RED SONJA ENTERS NEW ARC & COMES FULL CIRCLE!07/02/20 @ 12:54 pm EST
Today Marvel Entertainment announced three iconic franchises – ALIEN, PREDATOR, and ALIEN VS. PREDATOR – will be launching all-new stories with Marvel Comics starting in 2021! The new comic series will feature new and classic characters from Earth and beyond to explore never-before-seen corners of both the Alien and Predator universes.
Following the debut of Alien
in 1979 and Predator
in 1987, the films built a cult following and expanded rapidly to include toys, games, novels, and comic books, eventually leading to 2004’s landmark crossover Alien vs. Predator.
Marvel’s new stories will draw from all of these properties, building on decades of multimedia storytelling. Get a first look at next year’s deadly new chapter with spine-chilling cover art by David Finch!
“There’s nothing more thrilling than a story that will keep you at the edge of your seat, and Alien
have delivered that time and time again!” C.B. Cebulski, Editor-in-Chief of Marvel, told IGN. “I can clearly remember where I was when I saw each of these modern masterpieces for the first time, and reveling in how both masterfully weave extraterrestrial dread and drama into some of the most iconic scenes we’ve ever seen on film. And it’s that legacy that we’re going to live up to!”
“The incredible legacies of both franchises offer some of the most compelling and exciting worldbuilding in all of science fiction,” said Marvel Editor Jake Thomas. “It is a thrill and an honor to be able to add to that mythology and continuity with all-new stories set within those universes.”
are the two of the most identifiable, iconic characters of all time, and I love them for that,” said Finch. “But mostly, it’s being fortunate enough to be a kid when they were new. I’ve seen every movie they’ve ever been in, and I cannot wait to see them wreaking havoc in the Marvel Universe. I drew my pictures of them with a massive smile on my face.”
“As a visual medium, comics are the perfect place to build on those moments, and we here at Marvel are honored to begin telling these stories for fans everywhere,” added Cebulski. “As our release schedule continues to return, we can’t wait to share more in the coming months!”
Details on upcoming ALIEN
comic book titles, collections, reprints, and creative teams will be shared at a later date.

STREAMING & COMICS SENSATION THE BOYS COMES TO NOVELS!07/02/20 @ 1:05 pm EST
This September's Red Sonja
#19 kicks off a new arc in writer Mark Russell's critically acclaimed treatise on leadership, war, and sword & sorcery action.
Hot new artist Alessandro Miracolo (Zorro
) joins for this next stage of the run, as pieces fall into place and everything connects back around. Fans will want to track down his limited Independence Day variant cover for the preceding Red Sonja
#18 in anticipation and to complete their collections. His exciting style follows in the footsteps of other great artists who have contributed to this volume, lead by Mirko Colak and Bob Q. Colorist Dearbhla Kelly and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou will continue on the title with their expert craft. While superstars Jae Lee and Joseph Michael Linsner continue their runs on covers, joined now by Miracolo and other exciting talents like Erica Henderson (Assassin Nation
"Red Sonja returns to Shadizar in hope of ending the wars that have destroyed every kingdom they've touched," said Mark Russell. "But the end of one war is the cause of the next and how can she find the way out when every dead foe has someone to avenge them? This is the answer that the previous eighteen issues have been building up to."
"I am very happy to join this fantastic team and be welcomed to the Hyborian Age," said artist Alessandro Miracolo. "I grew up with the characters and stories of Robert E. Howard, so for me, this is a dream. And to follow the work of great artists like Mirko [Colak] and Bob Q, as well as collaborate on a book with one of my favorites in Jae Lee, it's hard to believe this is all real!"
Issues #19 through #24 will chronicle Sonja's return to her native land of Hyrkania only to discover that a figure who has lurked in the background has made a major move. Cyril, the orphaned son of Dragan the Magnificent, has taken the throne he feels belongs to him and is bent on avenging his father's death. To prevent further catastrophic warfare, Sonja travels to Shadizar with a mission to kill Cyril herself. What she doesn't know is what has happened through the course of the indispensable companion miniseries Killing Red Sonja,
including all the allies and magical abilities Cyril has picked up in his journeys.
Red Sonja #19
is solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ July 2020 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in September 2020.

'STARGIRL': NEW "BRAINWAVE" PHOTOS07/02/20 @ 9:00 am EST
While fans of The Boys look forward to the second season debuting September 4, Dynamite is proud to announce official novel adaptations of the original storylines. With new details adding to the official canon, the first volume is available right now in print and digitally.
Before it inspired the hit 2019 Prime television series and upcoming second season, The Boys
shook the comic book world with its debut in 2006. Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s celebrated series focused on a world where people with incredible powers existed and were far from responsible. Now as the exciting new miniseries The Boys: Dear Becky
hits comic shops as the official sequel/prequel to the original run, Dynamite Books has gone back to the original six-issue story arc and adapted it into the first The Boys
prose novel.The Boys: Name of the Game
novelization by writer Dan Wickline takes a deep dive into a world where costumed heroes soar through the sky, and masked vigilantes prowl the night, and someone has to make sure the supes don't get out of line. Hughie Campbell is in love for the first time in his life. Everything is going perfectly with his girlfriend Robin until she is tragically killed as collateral damage in a battle between supes. Meanwhile, Annie January has just achieved her ultimate dream. As the hero Starlight, she is promoted to the most powerful team of heroes in the world – The Seven. That dream quickly turns into a nightmare when she traumatically learns the truth about her idols. The mysterious Billy Butcher lost his wife due to supes as well. He's tasked by the CIA to reunite his clandestine team to get the supes in check, by whatever means necessary. When Butcher recruits Hughie for The Boys, the grieving young man finds a purpose in a world of superpowered narcissists living like they're gods. When all these forces come together, all hell breaks loose.Check out a teaser trailer for the book!
“I remember reading the first issue when it came out and just being floored. It was the type of story the industry needed,” said writer Dan Wickline. “Garth and Darick have created such an amazing world over the series run, and I’m getting a chance to introduce that world to another audience that may not normally pick up a comic book, as well as revealing a few details and fleshing out parts that even longtime fans will greatly appreciate.”
Dan Wickline started his career writing comics for a variety of different publishers including Humanoids, IDW, Image, Top Cow, Shadowline, and Zenescope. He co-wrote the recently released SEAL Team Six: No More Volume 13
and has his own Lucius Fogg
series of Urban Fantasy novels. In addition to editing the line, Dynamite Books also has more projects from Wickline around the corner, so stay tuned!Pick up the first book in your preferred format here!

Spoilers ahoy for Ravencroft #5!MARVEL TEASER: "KNULL IS COMING"07/02/20 @ 8:34 am EST
One of Marvel's most formidable martial arts experts has gotten her hand on a weapon belonging to an X-Men hero. Misty Knight
has seen one crisis after another in the halls of Ravencroft: first a takeover by Carnage and now another siege from within. After losing her trademark bionic arm, she got a new one from a "top secret" source. As the new issue, Ravencroft #5,
shows, this one comes with new features, including her own version of the Iron Fist, as well as Wolverine's forearm-mounted claws.
Last year, the Absolute Carnage
event pitted Knight against Ravencroft inmates infected by the Carnage symbiote. Knight won the battle, but one of the infected ripped off her cybernetic arm to disable its features. After the event ended, the Ravencroft
miniseries continued the story of Misty and her friends.
At the end of last month's issue #4, Misty fought back a horde of vampires by igniting her hand with energy, patterned after her friend Iron Fist's trademark chi-powered punches. This month, as she's joined by escapee The Punisher, she reveals another feature: three curved spikes emerging from her bionic hand's knuckles. The Punisher's impressed, calling them "wannabe Wolverine claws" and asking where her various upgrades are coming from. She replies that they're "top secret", reminding him that just because they're killing bloodthirsty vampires together doesn't mean she sees him as a trusted pal.
So where are her flashy new abilities coming from? We don't have a name for the organization replacing Marvel's destroyed SHIELD organization, but the shadowy group is evidently taking good care of its operatives. (via Screen Rant

'SPIDER-VERSE' PRODUCER TEASES "GROUNDBREAKING" ART FOR THE TOON'S SEQUEL07/02/20 @ 8:16 am EST
Marvel Comics is teasing a big story coming later this year for Venom and the Symbiotes, with a full-page house ad appearing in this week's Empyre Magazine that reads "Knull is coming – 2020".
Known for killing other deities, Knull is the evil god of the Symbiotes and has played an important role in the background of writer Donny Cates's ongoing Venom
run, with Cates also incorporating Knull into his Silver Surfer: Black
limited series and Guardians of the Galaxy
run. Though Knull's influence and machinations have been felt across those series – and Knull himself appeared in Silver Surfer: Black
– the implication of this teaser is that Eddie Brock/Venom, and by extension the core Marvel Universe, will finally run afoul of Knull firsthand later this year.
Prior to the release of Venom
#25, Cates stated that the next story arc ("Beyond") will begin the path to Venom's next big event, while the upcoming Web of Venom: Wraith
one-shot will be an integral part of that saga. (via GamesRadar

'THE BOYS': EXTENDED CLIP TEASES A DARKER SEASON 207/02/20 @ 8:01 am EST
After delighting countless fans and winning an Academy Award, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
still remains a beloved part of the comic book movie world.
A sequel to the film has been officially in the works for quite some time now, and fans have been excited to see how it continues its unique sense of style and mind-boggling aesthetics.
If a new tweet from one of the film's producers is any indication, it seems like the film won't just continue those things -- it might outdo them.
Christopher Miller has taken to Twitter to tease that development:
"The development of new groundbreaking art techniques being done for the next Spider-Verse movie are already blowing me away. It’s going to make the first movie look quaint," Miller tweeted. (via ComicBook
)Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2
is expected to land in theaters on October 7, 2022.

Amazon Prime’s series adaptation of Garth Ennis’ The Boys
was one of last year’s biggest and most pleasant surprises. The show, which was created by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, presented a world where superheroes are power mad ego maniacs, largely controlled by one sinister corporation. Although it plays like a dark satire of mainstream superheroes, it also was surprisingly heartfelt and touching at times. (via Nerdist
Now, Amazon Prime has released the first three-minute clip from the show’s upcomng second season, which looks to be going to even darker places than the first.
