Comments

For some bizarre reason, not only has Marvel waited quite awhile to release what’s coming out for November, but they’ve also divided what’s coming out among several websites, none of them having a complete list nor listing any Marvel Adventures titles. Thus, I’m not sure if or when any of the Marvel Adventures line of books are coming out, what they’re about, or even if they canceled the line. Still, I thought I’d post this now (before leaving for Boston for a week); if and when any information changes, I’ll update this post. Update (10/21/11): Info on the Marvel Adventures books added; dates and issue numbers from Comixology’s site!

Ultimate Comics Spidey is on the list, though under “maybe,” contingent on what the first three issues will be like. (As I’ve noted previously, the Ultimate line traditionally hasn’t inspired much interest from me.) As everyone online (including rabid racist “fans”) know, the new Spidey, Miles Morales, debuts soon in the newly-revamped title. Issues #1 and #2 are at comic shops on Sept. 14 and 21 respectively, per Marvel’s website; issue #3 will be out in October.

“Shame Itself” is a humor comic, presumably parodying recent Marvel storyline “Fear Itself” (and other Marvel aspects).
