Protect The Future. Change The Future. Choose Your Side.

New York, NY—March 17th, 2016 — The Marvel Universe is at a crossroads. A new power has emerged, one that can predict the future—for good or ill— and the heroes of the Marvel Universe are faced with a choice: Wield the power of “predictive justice” to change the future as they see fit, or reject it and allow tomorrow to unfold unaltered.

A New Moon Rises This April in MOON KNIGHT #1!

                                                                                                                                                                           

New York, NY—March 18th, 2016 —There’s a bad moon rising in the Marvel Universe. Prepare for a Moon Knight adventure unlike any you’ve ever seen before as blockbuster creators Jeff Lemire (Extraordinary X-Men) and Greg Smallwood (Moon Knight) take you deep into the recesses of Marc Spector’s mind! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your new look inside MOON KNIGHT #1 – the brand-new ongoing series debuting in April!

 

For years, Marc Spector has defended New York City as the masked vigilante Moon Knight. Calling upon the powers of the ancient Egyptian God Khonshu, he has kept the city safe from street gangs and supernatural forces alike. Or has he? Waking up in an insane asylum will shake anyone’s confidence. But it can’t be true, can it? His mind is full of identities and he no longer knows which is real. His thoughts are clouded and he has no idea what to believe. If he calls to Khonshu, he believes he will receive an answer. But is this a sign he still clings to his sanity, or has it slipped from him completely?

 

Something is wrong with Marc Spector. Will Moon Knight be his salvation? Or will it ultimately be his undoing? Find out as Lemire and Smallwood take you on a head trip through the psyche of a super hero this April in MOON KNIGHT  #1!

No Powers. No Responsibility – Your First Look at THE
UNBELIEVAVBLE GWENPOOL #1!

                                                                                                                                                                           

New York, NY—March 17th, 2016 —Wait, really? Yes, really! 2015’s overnight sensation is slicing and dicing her way into hearts and minds as well as her very own ongoing series! Hold on and hang tight world, because she’s THE UNBELIEVABLE GWENPOOL – and her first issue is coming at you this April from writer Christopher Hastings and artist Gurihiru!

 

Gwen Poole used to be a comic book reader just like you…until one day she woke up INSIDE the Marvel Universe. Now all the characters she read about are real! But they can’t be really real, can they? This has got to be some kind of dream or something, right? Well you know what that means – NO CONSEQUENCES! First order of business, get a costume and start fighting crime. Why? Because that’s what everyone who has a solo series does!

 

“Ms. Poole basically thinks she’s been transported into a video game,” says writer Christopher Hastings, in an interview with Marvel.com. “It’s a world where hundreds of super powered citizens shoot each other with eyeball lasers and grenades that are painted to look like pumpkins for some reason all the time. But the series will be about showing her that no, she’s not completely right. There are consequences to her actions. ”

 

No power. No responsibility. No rules. No limits. The Marvel Universe  has a new player, and she’ll shoot and stab her way through anyone and everyone. Could she truly be Marvel’s least role-modely and least responsible character to date? She can if she tries! Find out this April as this marvelous mercenary makes her explosive entrance in THE UNBELIEVABLE GWENPOOL #1!
