Marvel Comics News September 14 – 20 2015

There is a lot of previews for upcoming series, and I am excited about all of them!  Chewbacca is set to premier soon, and looks to be a great solo outing for the beloved Star Wars character.  A few Avengers announcements and previews are here, which show off who’s on which team.  Extraordinary X-Men has a summary now, that explains a little of the end of Secret Wars, but still some vagueness.  The Spider-Verse has a couple of announcements, including when and where the Spider-Gwen series will take place, and how Spidey of 2099 fits in with the new Marvel-verse.  Sam Wilson is still Captain America and his series gets a first look.

A series that I have been most curious about and am excited to hear more news on is Guardians of the Galaxy.  Before Secret Wars, Star Lord was being elected to be ruler of Spartax, and also became engaged to X-Men’s Kitty Pryde.  Then the universe ended and no one was sure what was happening to the two.  Now, there’s some news about post-Secret Wars and I’m glad to see Kitty is in the lineup for Guardians.  There’s more on that below, as well as all the other big news this week!
