Marvel 2018 - Marvel Comics May full Solicitations




Marvel 2018

One thing is really clear about the Marvel 2018 announcement.  Marvel wants to reboot its universe and not use the word reboot.  However, you feel about them rebooting again (I believe this will be the 6th time in 8 years).  The problem with not calling something a duck, when it walks like a duck, sounds like a duck etc........Is that everybody knows its a duck and your message just gets muddled.


Consider this statement from C.B. Cebulski:
When I think about what's next for us and our fans, four things come to mind: new creative teams, new series, new directions and new beginnings.
We have a lot of incredible comics coming out in 2018, and AVENGERS #1 will be an important milestone for every Marvel fan. There are so many spectacular stories with amazing art leading up to May, and we hope you'll enjoy these previews of our fresh start.
From Marvel.com


Huh?  So what is it?   Just some #1s or a whole new thing, is it an event?  What?  Alright Tom Brevoort steps into explain:

Over the next couple of weeks, we'll be rolling out new beginnings for a few of our key franchises–new creative teams, new starting points, new storylines—all the big stuff that we've been building towards since LEGACY began. This isn't a clearing of the slate—while these new starts will kick off with new #1s, we'll be maintaining the classic LEGACY issue counts as dual numbering on these titles as well. Oh, and don't read anything into not seeing a character on the Jim Cheung piece... we can only squeeze so many characters onto there without killing poor Jim!
From Marvel.com


Ok so the major arcs of Marvel comics are starting over at 1, with new teams but its not a reboot?  Alright.........

Marvel just my advice, Just reboot the damn thing.  I know Legacy was supposed to be last reboot but its pretty boring and stale.  You have new creatives on top just go ahead and blow it up and start over.  I am serious.  Just do something cool enough where I won't want you to blow it up for awhile.

Of the 3 books mentioned I actually think the concepts of all 3 sound and cool.  The Black Panther in space book I think has major potential after the blockbuster film.  Too bad it was not timed to come out right now though.

One other thing that seems clear from the main image is that finally the Inhumans are being put to rest.  It seems that the Fox deal has finally squashed the misguided attempt to turn Inhumans into Mutants.  I actually think the Inhumans move may have been one of the worst ideas from Marvel ever.

So while I still don't know what to call Marvel 2018 I will say the following issues do sound pretty cool.



AVENGERS #1


A NEW ERA DAWNS FOR EARTH'S MIGHTIEST HEROES – COURTESY OF JASON AARON AND ED MCGUINNESS!

Black Panther Store:
Toylab is a member of the Amazon Affiliate program which allows to find awesome deals on Black Panther merchandise and link them directly on our site.

Comics and Trades:
I normally only recommend 4 trades from Amazon however I have linked directly to 8 here.    I highly recommend Don McGregor's Black Panther Jungle Action the 1973series which fleshes out Wakanda.  I grew up on and love Christopher Priest's Black Panther that modernized the character.  The recent Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet is also phenonemal, while being very different from all other comics.



Toys and Merchandise:
Here are my favorite Black Panther Toys.  The Mask, Funko, Marvel Legends figure and the Lego Set from Captain America: Civil War.  This will be updated once the Black Panther film comes closer.



Here is the full list of Marvel Comics being released in May:
