More Marvel Comics 07.05.07 | Warriors and Loners

nwheaderNight Thrasher and his new band of de-powered mutants carry on the legacy in New Warriors #2, while Marvel's best-est B-listers continue to turn heads in The Loners #4.  

The New Warriors Fight Back!


The New Warriors are dead…Long Live The New Warriors! In the wake of Civil War, a new team of New Warriors have formed-fighting crime and the Super Human Registration act-led by the enigmatic Night Thrasher. In the first issue of this acclaimed series by writer Kevin Grevioux and penciller Paco Medina, Night Thrasher began assembling a team of de-powered mutants-including Beak and Wind Dancer-to complete his mission. Just what is his endgame? Wasn't he presumed dead? And how will Iron Man respond to this band of young upstarts? If those answers weren't enough, New Warriors #2 will feature the return of wildly popular character and the shocking secret identity of one New Warrior!


Critics agree that New Warriors is the book that Marvel fans new and old should be reading, with ComicBookResources.Com's Hannibal Tabu exclaiming, "Savvy, smart, and well told — this is definitely a comic to keep your eyes on."


Declaring the series a "must-read," IGN.Com's Richard George gushed, "It's extremely entertaining and simply radiates heart."


With ties to the popular The Initiative storyline and rave reviews from all corners, Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on New Warriors #2, which continues to explore the enthralling mystery of this new team. These New Warriors aren't going down without a fight-and they've got Tony Stark in their crosshairs!

New Warriors #1 Sells Out!


Marvel is happy to announce that New Warriors #1 has sold out at Diamond (though copies may still be available at the retail level), signaling a triumphant return of Marvel's fan favorite super hero team.  Writer Kevin Grievoux and artist Paco Medina's Initiative tie-in, New Warriors #1, re-imagines the young Marvel team and positions them against Iron Man's pro-registration regime.  The series also features the enigmatic resurrection of former New Warriors leader, Night Thrasher, and the return of a few fan-favorite former mutants who are struggling to live without powers in the post-Civil War world.


"We're thrilled by the news," says Executive Editor Axel Alonso.  "All the guys — Kevin, Paco, Juan and Marte — all brought their passion and their A-game to the book, and I think it shows."


Richard George of calls New Warriors #1 a "must read," stating. "The characters are incredible and Paco Medina's art is astonishing…This could very well be the next Young Avengers or Runaways."


With the first amazing issue of New Warriors selling out, and with the increasing success of other related Initiative titles, Marvel advises retailers to check their orders for future issues of this series.  Marvel currently has no plans to go back to press on New Warriors #1. The New Warriors are back, and are fighting the (Iron)man!!!

Loners #3 Sells Out For a Third Time!!!


Marvel is happy to announce that The Loners #3 has sold out at Diamond (though copies may still be available at the retail level).  Writer C. B. Cebulski and artist Karl Moline's innovative look at a group of "recovering" heroes is now three-for-three, with every issue of the acclaimed limited series selling out!  The unique title, which spun out of the pages of Runaways, follows five young heroes who are seeking to give up their lives as heroes, and stop using their powers or abilities. 


 "A three-peat?!? Wow!" writer C.B. Cebulski ecstatically exclaimed.  "I guess Marvel has a new ‘little book that could' on its hands. As I've been a Marvel zombie pretty much since birth, being allowed to write a comic with some of my favorite Marvel B-listers was a dream come true. But nothing could have prepared me for the fan and retailer response of this level! "


The critics also agree that The Loners is a series for all superhero fans. "The art of Loners continues to be superb," says Mattheaw McLean of, "with excellent character representation and action sequences."


"This series' concept is a gem," says's Scott Williams. "…If you're not already on board, go seek out the first two issues to go with this one."


Says Marvel's Senior Vice-President of Sales and Circulation  David Gabriel, "we keep finding gems like these in our publishing schedule throughout the year.  Series like Ares, Agents of Atlas, and now Loners.  And just as you're now seeing a big rise in popularity for Ares, don't be surprised when you see a bigger push with the Loners characters and even the Agents of Atlas later in the year!"


With the Marvel's break-out hit The Loners continuing to garner support from critics and fans alike (not to mention those three straight sell-outs), Marvel advises retailers to check their orders for future issues of this series.  The Loners may not want to be heroes, but if Marvel fans get their way they may not have a choice!
