Marvel introduces a bold new era for Steve Rogers in CAPTAIN AMERICA SENTINEL OF LIBERTY #1!

Marvel kicked off all the Cap action action back in April with the release of CAPTAIN AMERICA #0 featuring Sam Wilson and Steve Rogers both rocking the classic red, white and blue! Then in May we got the first issue of CAPTAIN AMERICA SYMBOL OF TRUTH starring Sam Wilson that introduced a whole new mystery surrounding Cap's past! Now Steve gets his star moment in this new series that will explore how Captain America has changed and what it really means to be a patriot in the year 2022. But don't worry there's still going to be plenty of action in this new series with the introduction of a new DESTROYER who will be the first clue to a much larger, more explosive mystery! 
"The shield isn't what you think. It's not your symbol. It's theirs."
The shield is one of the most iconic images in the world. It stands for hope, justice and the protection of the innocent. It also holds a secret, undiscovered until now, that will change the way Steve Rogers views the 20th century...and how he chooses to fight in the 21st.
Nothing is what it appears in this game-changing Captain America run by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly (KANG THE CONQUEROR) and Stormbreaker Carmen Carnero (MILES MORALES: SPIDER-MAN, CAPTAIN MARVEL, STAR).

Celebrate the history of these quintessential Marvel characters with the beautiful new PENGUIN CLASSICS MARVEL COLLECTIONS hardcovers!

Illustrated throughout, The Penguin Classics Marvel Collection presents specially curated comic book anthologies of the origin stories, seminal tales, and characters of the Marvel Universe to explore Marvel’s transformative and timeless influence on an entire genre of fantasy.

 

It is impossible to imagine American popular culture without Marvel Comics. For decades, Marvel has published groundbreaking visual narratives that sustain attention on multiple levels: as explorations of the relationship between power and responsibility; as metaphors for the experience of difference and otherness; as meditations on the pain of adolescence and the fluid nature of identity; as examinations of the meaning, and limits, of patriotism; as ironic juxtapositions of the cosmic and the quotidian; as resources for the understanding of political and social history; and as high watermarks in the artistic tradition of American cartooning. For the first time, these classic stories of some of the most iconic super heroes in the history of American comics are Penguin Classics.

PENGUIN CLASSICS MARVEL COLLECTION CAPTAIN AMERICA

 

Debuting in 1941—almost a year before the events of Pearl Harbor— Captain America was initially conceived by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby as a pop culture argument for US intervention in the European war against fascism. This collection includes his first appearances from 1941 alongside key examples of his first solo stories of the 1960s, in which the newly resurrected hero of World War II struggles to find his place in an unfamiliar world. The transformation of this American icon thus marks a parallel transformation in the nation itself. The introduction offers insight into the social and political significance of Captain America as a character and a national symbol, while a critical apparatus and appendices shed further light on his creative development.

PENGUIN CLASSICS MARVEL COLLECTION BLACK PANTHER

 

As Black Panther and the leader of the hidden African nation of Wakanda, King T’Challa combines the legendary stealth of his namesake with the strength and intelligence to overcome his adversaries while earning the trust of his people. This anthology includes the Panther’s 1966 origin story by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, and the critically-acclaimed “Panther’s Rage” from the character’s 1970s solo series, by Don McGregor, Rich Buckler and Billy Graham; both series were produced during a turbulent moment in America’s struggle for civil rights, and reflect that struggle in different ways. The introduction offers fresh insight into the thematic development of the Black Panther, along with the social and cultural influences that shape the world he inhabits.

PENGUIN CLASSICS MARVEL COLLECTION THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

 

This anthology goes back to the original source material for The Amazing Spider­-Man, with key stories from the first two years from 1962 to 1964.  These allegories of adolescence permanently transformed the conventions of the super hero genre by insisting that great power is never just a means to an end, but also a burden­some responsibility. The introduction offers fresh insights into character development and the personalities of his creators. Also included are rarely reprinted non–super hero stories, early letter pages, and supplemen­tal materials shedding light on Lee and Ditko’s artistic process.

 Discover the history of THE MEN WHO CREATED GUNDAM in this awesome new dramatized manga!

In 1978 animation director Yoshiyuki Tomino set forth to change the Japanese animation industry. For decades prior, Japanese science fiction had churned out numerous tales of semi-autonomous robots that would often come to the aide of humanity, but as someone who worked on a number of those works, Tomino came to the realization that he wanted to see a more realistic robot narrative.

 

His vision was one where the robot, while just slightly more human in appearance, was utilized more as a tool manipulated by man. With renowned artist Yoshikazu Yasuhiko by his side, and occasionally as his artistic rival, Tomino would change the way the whole world came to see Japanese animation and the broader toy and comics industries built around it.

Witness the second coming in an alternate versions of 1990s Las Vegas in the new creator owned series featuring art by JAE LEE - SEVEN SONS #1

JAE LEE returns to creator-owned comics with his first new title since 1994, a seven-issue limited series. SEVEN SONS is The Fugitive meets the Book of Revelation. Delph, a young man who may be the Second Coming of Christ, runs for his life as he attempts to learn the truth behind his existence.
