Comments

The “Inhumans vs. X-Men” aftermath kicks in, with the end result including a new book starring the time-displaced mutants (who’re still here).

A third Black Panther ongoing monthly comic starts this month. It costars, among others, T’Challa’s ex-wife Storm. Never thought we’d see three ongoing Black Panther books. I suppose it’s all part of the build up to the Black Panther movie that opens a year from now.

Patsy Walker meets up with Jubilee this month. Yes, she’s still a vampire.

Nick Fury (apparently the African-American one) is getting his own ongoing book starting this month.

The storyline in “Moon Girl” concludes this month, featuring various guest stars.

“Hawkeye”‘s solicitation says it kicks off a new storyline this month, with Jessica Jones guest-starring.

Marvel’s releasing a free book that promises to clarify its confusing recent chronology. I’ve avoided most of the crossover-heavy books as much as possible. However, given the heavy number of series renumberings and restarts, at least Marvel’s making a stab at clarifying things for readers. (Of course, not renumbering/restarting books constantly and easing up on the non-stop mega-events¬†would also help.)
