There is surprisingly not a lot of news concerning Marvel this week. If you look at last week there were a lot of big announcements. Not that this week has a lack of big announcements, but it seems to have slowed down for the moment. First, catch the Marvel Unlimited sale. It’s a great subscription service that I use where you can have access to thousands of comics on your digital devices. It’s an easy way to get started with the Marvel universe or continue on. Next is news with the Star Wars comics, Jack Kirby cover variants, and coloring Deadpool.
