Hell’s Kitchen is About to Get Hotter in Daredevil Noir #1

Acclaimed writer Alexander Irvine and fan favorite artist Tomm Coker present the next offering from the critically-acclaimed Marvel Noir line-Daredevil Noir #1! Things are about to get ugly in Hell’s Kitchen as a gangster Orville Halloran arrives on the scene as a rather unwelcome guest in Kingpin’s territory – it’s called Hell’s Kitchen for a reason, right? Matt Murdock is about to find out the hard way that half-truths are lies, and lies will get you into trouble – a lot of trouble!

Critics and fans alike are raving about Marvel’s Noir line!

Marvel Announces "Wolverine Art Appreciation Month"

Marvel is proud to announce that in honor of Wolverine’s 35th anniversary, numerous Marvel titles will feature Wolverine Art Appreciation Variant Covers in April, as part of Wolverine Art Appreciation Month. In the tradition of Marvel’s previous variant cover programs, featuring everything from villains to zombies to monkeys, select Marvel titles will feature variant covers spotlighting the most popular X-Man through a unique lens! Inspired by some of the world’s greatest artists, these variant covers depict Wolverine like you’ve never seen him before, in styles reminiscent of Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol and more!

"This is a huge year for Wolverine as he proves why he’s arguably one of the most popular characters in the world," explained Joe Quesada, Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief. "He’s not just popular with fans but also with artists, as evidenced by how many of today’s top comic artists jockey for a chance to draw him.  This got us thinking: what if Wolverine had been around for hundreds, if not thousands, of years? What great, classic artists would want a crack at drawing a Wolverine cover?"
