Marvel: Season One Info

Perhaps, and understandably, spurred on, by DC’s massive success with the Superman: Earth One OGN last year, Marvel are trying something similar with their characters, in order to get the attention of comics newbies. It’s actually a good idea and should be done more often, as walking into a comic shop for the first time can be daunting if you don’t know where to start. The following info was released at last week’s Comic-Con but the pics are new.

Then again, Marvel make  a point to mention that they have been working on this for over a year, so I guess it’s one of those coincidences that happens between The Big Two from time to time.

MARVEL: SEASON ONE LINE-UP

Next year, immerse yourselves in the Marvel Universe like never before as the world’s greatest super heroes star in a line of all-new graphic novels with Marvel: Season One! Aimed at new and old readers alike, the first wave featuring Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, Daredevil and The X-Men, brings readers a complete story, modernizing the seminal origins of these characters while also offering new revelations for long-time fans.

Stay Tuned for updates and announcements over the next few weeks.

Fantastic Four Becomes Future Foundation

Well this is an intriguing surprise. Below are the first covers and info heralding the new direction of the Fantastic Four, after the well publicised death of the Human Torch. I kinda like the new black and white costumes, though I don’t know how long they’ll last, and it does make sense for Spidey to join, as he’s a smarty like Reed and was one of Johnny Storm’s best friends.
