Marvel Comics News Digest 11/14 – 11/18/16 Featuring Darth Maul and Guardians of the Galaxy Solos

The Sith Are Unleashed This February in STAR WARS: DARTH MAUL #1!

 

New York, NY – November 15, 2016 – This February, hatred has a new face. Marvel Entertainment & Lucasfilm Ltd. are pleased to announce STAR WARS: DARTH MAUL #1 – the next thrilling Star Wars limited series comes to comic shops and digital devices everywhere! Blockbuster writer Cullen Bunn (Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, Monsters Unleashed) and artist Luke Ross (Star Wars: The Force Awakens Adaptation) take you inside the mind of Darth Sidious’ star pupil as he embarks on a personal quest – with deadly consequences!

 

Bred on hate, fear, and anger. Steeped in the ways of darkness…trained to kill. Darth Maul’s time as an apprentice to Darth Sidious has long been cloaked in shadows, but at last we will reveal his tale of revenge. His master tells him to embrace his anger, but to stay hidden and bide his time. Maul has waited long enough – his patience growing ever thinner. His moment to step into the light has finally come. Prepare for a tale of unbridled rage as Darth Maul readies one of his first encounters with his mortal enemy…with the Jedi.

 

“Darth Maul was, as you might imagine, my favorite character in The Phantom Menace,” says Cullen Bunn in an interview with Marvel.com. “I loved that we were seeing a new kind of Sith. Though he was only in the movie for a few short scenes, he left his mark. I couldn’t help but wonder what had driven his brash, impatient anger. That’s part of what we’re exploring with this book.”

 

The fan-favorite character takes center stage this February as Bunn and Ross take you inside the mind of the Sith in the can’t-miss STAR WARS: DARTH MAUL #1!

MARVEL REVEALS ALL U.S.AVENGERS #1 STATE VARIANTS

Action, Adventure and Intrigue Draped in the Red, White, and Blue

 

New York, NY—November 18, 2016 — From coast to coast – Alabama to Wyoming – the U.S.AVENGERS are here to unify our nation and proudly defend all its citizens. For the launch of this all-new series, U.S.AVENGERS, Marvel Comics will produce over 50 unique variants assigning one Avenger to each state which has garnered nationwide press attention from ABC News, Hollywood Reporter, Buzzfeed, and more, today, Marvel is excited to debut the entire lineup for these distinctive State Variant covers with exceptional artwork by Rod Reis.

 

“We did extensive research through Marvel’s history to be able to align a particular Avenger with each individual State,” says Tom Brevoort, SVP/Executive Editor. “Beginning with places of birth, and expanding outward to key stories featuring the character in that particular location, we were able to hone in on a specific and unique Avengers character with a connection to each of the fifty States—and more!”

 

“Marvel’s U.S.AVENGERS State Variants are a chance for our fans and retailers to show their home town patriotism paired with some of the biggest Avengers from the Marvel Universe,” says SVP Sales & Marketing for Marvel, David Gabriel. “We knew that a series with the name U.S.AVENGERS would evoke a sense of honor with all of our fans and we really wanted to go that extra step and offer a variant campaign that would allow our readers to show their hometown pride across this great nation.”

 

In addition to the U.S.AVENGERS State Variants – including Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and Canada, retailers who order each State Variant will receive an ultra-rare “Secret” Variant that is going to be shining gem for this variant collection and is sure to be sought after by all fans across the nation – and globe!

 

This January, the security of the Marvel Universe is fractured. The world’s first line of defense, S.H.I.E.L.D., can no longer be trusted. The United States no longer has a super-spy agency with its best interests at heart – until now. Prepare for the U.S.AVENGERS!

MARVEL COMICS PROUDLY PRESENTS

“BLACK PANTHER: A NATION UNDER OUR FEET – PART SEVEN”

FEATURING THE WORLD DEBUT OF

“ARIES” BY FLATBUSH ZOMBIES

 

Innovative Marvel Video Series Bridges Marvel Comics with Top Music Talent

 

New York, NY—November 17, 2016 — Today, Marvel Comics continues to present this year’s breakout Marvel Super Hero – the Black Panther – through a monthly video series that continues to link the world of comics and hip-hop blending animated comics along with commentary from Black Panther writer, Ta-Nehisi Coates.  Additionally, “Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet – Part Seven” is launching the brand new track, “Aries” by Flatbush Zombies.

 

Within Marvel Comics’ Black Panther, written by The Atlantic national correspondent and National Book Award winner, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Black Panther confronts a dramatic upheaval in Wakanda that will make leading the African nation tougher than ever before! With no one left to trust, T’Challa leans the only people he can trust: Luke Cage, Misty Knight, and Storm. But Wakanda may be too far gone for this all-new, all-different CREW.

 

Continuing the excitement surrounding Marvel’s celebrated Super Hero T’Challa, the Black Panther, the latest episode of this revolutionary multi-artist hip-hop-inspired video series samples a brand new track, “Aries” by Flatbush Zombies.

 

Speaking with FADER, Flatbush Zombies said, “Black Panther is such a pivotal character in the Marvel [Universe]; we are honored to create a soundtrack for him. We touched on topics regarding race relations and police brutality; harnessing all of the real-life horrors of discrimination and applied them to a fictional character who fights for his people.”

 

Watch “Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet – Part Seven” now!

 

Black Panther #8 is available digitally through the Marvel Digital Comic Shop and at all local comic book retailers. To find a comic shop near you, visit www.comicshoplocator.com or call 1-888-comicbook.
