Marvel Comics 4.11 and more | Nova #1, plus second printings

mzheaderTake that, Zombie Hitler! There's a heaping helping of new covers for a ton of recent Marvel sellouts (including Marvel Zombies/Army of Darkness, seen at left), plus a five-page preview of Nova #1, which explodes out of Annihilation this April.  

 

 

Rocketing From The Pages of Annihilation Comes Nova #1

 

In the wake of the Annihilation wave, can one man truly protect the entire universe?  In the new ongoing series Nova, writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning (Annihilation: Nova), and artist Sean Chen (Sensational Spider-Man) will answer that question.  Straight from the pages of Annihilation and Annihilation: Nova, the story of Richard Rider, the man known as Nova, continues.

 

 With every other member of the Nova Corps killed during the events of Annihilation, Nova is now the sole survivor of the Nova Corps, and the bearer of nearly limitless power.  Even with the power of the entire corps, can he alone police the entire universe?  Furthermore, as he fights to continue the work of the Nova Corps, will he lose sight of his place on Earth?  And his former teammates and friends?

 

Speaking of former teammates, you cannot miss Initiative tie-ins in Nova #2 and #3 when Rich Rider learns of the death of the New Warriors and comes face-to-face with Iron Man and the Thunderbolts. When Rich learns that his former New Warriors teammate known as Speedball is now the T-Bolt Penance, it won't be pretty.

 

Strap yourself in as writers Dan Abnett, Lanning, and Chen take you for a ride that will span the entire Marvel Universe, and will prove that one man really can make a difference.  Featuring covers by acclaimed Iron Man cover artist Adi Granov.

Marvel Announces a Mighty Helping of Sellouts

 

        The House of Ideas is on fire!  Between the fallout of Civil War, the Death of Captain America and sizzling hot titles like Dark Tower: Gunslinger Born and Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness, Marvel continues to make must-reads of all its titles!

 

 

        The response has been so incredible that Marvel is going back to press on a dozen titles to fill the demand for all of these exciting stories.

 

        The death of Captain America has made Captain America #25 the hottest issue to hit shelves in over a decade and Marvel is rushing back to press for a second printing with a new variant cover featuring the instantly-iconic Steve Epting image of Cap shot.

 

        Another comic making waves all over the world is Stephen King's Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born #1, which continues to thrill King and comic fans alike, with the first issue receiving a second printing with a new cover by Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada.

 

        The best-selling comic event, Civil War, has injected excitement into titles across the Marvel Universe, making the Initiative one of the most talked about stories in comics!  Mighty Avengers #1, Civil War: The Confession, Iron Man #15 and Civil War: The Initiative have all sold out and are receiving second printings. 

 

        Plus, Civil War's tragic ending for Spider-Man has the Wall-Crawler in a new frame of mind and him adopting his black costume once again.  Spider-Man is Back in Black, which has Spidey back on top with three sellouts of  Sensational Spider-Man #35, Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #17, and Spider-Man Family #1, which are going back to press with all-new variant second printing covers by Clayton Crain, Adi Granov, and Leonard Kirk respectively.

 

        And as it was announced earlier this week, Marvel Zombies vs. the Army of Darkness #1 will be going back to press with an all-new Arthur Suydam zombie homage cover of Captain America #1. 

 

Also, the hit series New Avengers: Illuminati will have its first two sold out issues collected together in New Avengers: Illuminati – Secret History.

 

        Please note, the first printings of these titles may still be available at the retailer level.  Marvel encourages retailers to order up on the subsequent issues of these series in order to meet customer demand.
