All The Incredible New Comic Series To Cosy Up With This Spring

All The Incredible New Comic Series To Cosy Up With This Spring

We’re so close to being free from the freezing cold of winter. Spring is nearly upon us, with its budding flowers, twittering birds, and the scent of pollen in the air. We’re not scientists, but we’re pretty sure it’s scientific fact that these are the perfect conditions to read a ton of new comics in. Good thing there’s some on the way!

In cased you missed them, Gizmodo has published some 2018 spring previews for movies and books. Here now is a massive amount of comics coming our way in the next few months, minus December, as the solicits for that month haven’t been published yet.


September

Marvel

Wolverine #1: Wolverine’s been through an awful lot in the comics lately, mostly down to the fact that he’s actually spent the last few years being dead. Super dead, really, encased in adamantium.

But this is comics, so of course, he’s back, and has been for a while, snooping around the edges of the Marvel universe and even brushing up against the Infinity Stones. But now he’s returned to his classic costume for a whole new era of snikt-based adventures. (Charles Soule, Steve McNiven)

Thanos Legacy #1: Speaking of dead Marvel characters! The Mad Titan got seemingly offed by his own daughter Gamora in the events of the ongoing Infinity Wars (not to be confused with the very similarly named movie). But how did it get to that point? This one-shot bridges the gap between Thanos’ previous ongoing series and the deadly events of Infinity Wars. (Donny Cates, Gerry Duggan, Brian Level)

Asgardians of the Galaxy #1: Another series spinning out of Infinity War, Nebula’s quest to rule the cosmos with an Asgardian superweapon leads to an unlikely teamup between Asgard’s not-so-finest:Throg, Skurge, Valkyrie, Angela, Thunderstrike, and even the Destroyer. They’re on a quest across the stars to stop her. (Cullen Bunn, Matteo Lolli)

Iceman #1: Iceman’s short-lived ongoing series returns, as the original X-Men member continues his plight to explore his freshly-revealed sexuality and the trials and tribulations of being one of the mightiest mutants around.

Marvel’s Captain Marvel Prelude #1: You know the drill. When there’s a major Marvel movie coming out, a companion comic is sure to follow, and Captain Marvel is no exception. What’s interesting about the book, though, is that it’ll follow Nick Fury and Maria Hill in the moments leading up to that fateful moment in Infinity War when they reach out to Carol for help. (Will Corona Pilgrim, Andrea Di Vito)

William Gibson’s Alien 3 #1: William Gibson’s Alien 3 told a story infused with Cold War-era political intrigue that would have taken the movie franchise in a wildly different, but just as fascinating direction, had the studio decided to go along with it. The Sulaco’s crew becomes caught in a conflict between two governments, both trying to weaponize the Xenomorphs for their own personal goals. As is always the case, though, the aliens simply cannot be controlled and it’s not long before all hell breaks loose. (William Gibson, Johnnie Christmas)
