Looks like Marvel's got some fun stuff on the way as 2007 wraps up.
- Marvel Illustrated: The Iliad looks cool. (pictured)
- Ultimate Iron Man 2 - I liked the first one, so we'll see how this one goes.
- Looks like I'll have to go back and catch up on the Captain America series - Brubaker is great and the story line for this arc really sounds better and better with each issue.
- The Marvel Holiday Special is in this Previews - be sure to pre-order a copy because these are usually fun, and I know they usually sell out fairly quickly.
- Did you notice, the Marvel cover that people had seen about a month ago that had the internets buzzing with rumor and speculation turns out to be the cover for the "What If Civil War" issue. That was my guess from the beginning.
- Another Criminal trade comes out - this would be a great gift item. Each story is a stand-alone, so no need to buy the volume 1, unless of course you want to, because that one is good too.
- Power Pack is fun stuff, there's no denying that. But do we REALLY need a Power Pack Premiere Hard Cover with a price tag of $25? I'm thinking NO.
- Did you notice that Ultimates 3 is only 5 issues?!? Yep, it's true. And Loeb and Madueira have had so long to work on it, since it was announced, what, a year ago, or was it two??? They probably could actually have all five issues done by now.
- Only 1 Annihilation comic in December - that makes me sad. This is really pretty good stuff!
- ANOTHER Fantastic Four one-shot?? Is that necessary? How about you focus on getting the regular title out and making it good? Huuh? How about that? I know, it's a crazy idea.
The Mini-Series/One-Shot Count for December for Marvel:
- 4 new mini-series starting
- 11 one-shot comics scheduled
- 2 solicitations for the final issue of a mini-series
- 16 issues scheduled to come out in December that are mid-series mini-series.
