All 60 New And Returning Comic Series Coming From Marvel This Spring

All 60 New And Returning Comic Series Coming From Marvel This Spring

Over the past few weeks, Marvel has been hyping up its new, post-Civil War II comics roster: The age of “All-New, All-Different” is over, and “Marvel Now!” is beginning (err, again). There’s been new series reveals and teases of major new status quo changes, but now the full line-up has been revealed.

Released yesterday, a new previews catalogue lays out every new series being added to the line up — from Genndy Tartakovsky’s long-in-the-making Cage! series, to the return of Jessica Jones, to the return of the Odinson in The Unworthy Thor — every series being rebooted with new #1 issues, and every current title that will carry on as normal.

Phew! On top of all that, the catalogue also features two big teasers for new series: Guardians of the Galaxy: Grounded, which appears to bring the cosmic team to New York (perhaps permanently), and Nova, hinting at the return of Richard Rider himself as the hero — even as current Nova Sam departs the Avengers for a place in Champions.

Aside from the series we already knew about that have been unveiled over the past couple of weeks, there are a few surprises. Nadia Pym, the daughter of Hank Pym and his first wife is getting her own solo series as the new Wasp. Squadron Supreme is teasing the return of Namor from the grave.

The long-in-the-making Gamora comic first unveiled at New York Comic-Con 2014 is finally arriving. The Venom comic appears to be undergoing a major reworking, with the “Agent Venom” iteration of the character absent, and the traditionally villainous incarnation of the symbiote monster taking its place. There are big changes coming to the Spider-verse, with not only a return to the “Renew Your Vows” plotline that teased the return of Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson’s marriage during Secret Wars, but love blossoming between Spider-Gwen and Miles Morales as well.

But interestingly, not all the news from Marvel is good. Aside from the Death of X miniseries, there is not a single Mutant or X-Men focused comic coming out, and with none of the current X-Series included, fans’ worst fears about the decline of mutant kind in the comics could be coming true — but Marvel has attempted to assuage concerns at the lack of X-Men comics in the catalogue in a statement released to Comic Book Resources, saying that more series featuring Mutants will appear in the company’s October solicits later this year.

On top of that, there doesn’t appear to be a single series in the lineup that is headlined by an LGBTQ character — disappointing, considering that Marvel had previously teased the Now! changes with young lesbian hero America Chavez, leading fans to speculate she could get her own series. Some of the characters in new series could be revealed to be LGBTQ later on, but for now, there isn’t a single series in this comic that is features an LGBTQ character as the protagonist.

Marvel representatives have stressed that the catalogue does not contain every new series in the works, so there could always be a chance to see LGBTQ-led series later down the line. But for a company attempting to portray its slate of comics (and the creatives behind them) as more diverse than ever, it’s not a great look to have, especially when their largest rival has multiple series both current and on the way that feature headlining gay and lesbian characters.

What are you looking forward to the most? Is there anything missing you’d here you would have liked to have seen? There’s a lot of details and reveals to unpack in those covers, and you’ll have plenty of time to do so — Marvel Now! Is set to begin this October.
