Marvel’s next big thing: the world of ALIEN begins this Wednesday with ALIEN #1, following in the footsteps of Marvel’s incredible Star Wars comics!

THE ICONIC CINEMATIC TERROR MAKES ITS MARVEL DEBUT!


Gabriel Cruz gave his life to Weyland-Yutani–In the case of an alien attack he barely survived, almost literally! Recently retired, Cruz is trying to patch things up with his abandoned son with the help of his friend, a Bishop-model android, but his re-entry into civilian life is not going smoothly…and his encounters with the deadly Xenomorph are far from over. 

Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Salvador Larroca team up to tell an all-new tale of the titan of horror and science fiction that has scared audiences for decades. No one is safe. No one is innocent. And no one can hear you scream.

With the way that Marvel has introduced new characters and concepts that seem to be moving into the official canon of the Star Wars films and TV series, we’re anticipating the same from their new ALIEN line!

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #62 continues the arc that began in #61, and features the full first appearance of Spidey’s new threads!

One of the most compelling & fascinating aspects of the Spider-Man character throughout the years has been the introduction of iconic new Spider-Man costumes that deliver some of the biggest moments in Spidey history for the character. 

Whether it’s the iconic symbiote black costume from Secret Wars, the just as awesome but often forgotten Armored Spider-Man, or more recently, the Iron Spider duds which we all know so well after Civil War, Spidey’s had quite the wardrobe!

Now, the next big era for the Wallcrawler begins fresh in the pages of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #61, which features the FIRST CAMEO APPEARANCE of Spidey’s new costume, and then issue #62, which features the FIRST FULL APPEARANCE of the costume, continues the fun, and leads the way for what’s to come for ol’ Webhead going into the Summer!

If you’re a Spidey fan: you’re in for a treat. We’re about to enter one of the most exciting periods for the Wallcrawler that any of us have seen since the roll-out of one of our fav Spidey runs: SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN, and we could not be more pumped!

The fun begins with AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #61, which introduces the brand new Spidey costume, and sets the stage for the highly anticipated NON-STOP SPIDER-MAN #1!

Peter’s got a new job, Spidey’s got a new look, and The Kingpin is starting to remind everyone just why he’s a major force in the Marvel Universe!

And, then to make sure you’re 110% on board for all things Spidey, make sure you snag AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #62, which features the full first appearance of Spidey’s new costume!

Kingpin makes it personal with Peter Parker and New York City itself will pay the price!
