Wolfpack, Fantastic Four: World’s Greatest Comic Magazine Headline Classic Additions to Marvel Unlimited

Posted by September 5, 2018 Comment

Marvel has revealed the comics that will be making their way to Marvel Unlimited this month, including as usual the time-delayed recent releases, but perhaps more interesting, the classic comics that are being made available for the first time digitally as well. Leading the pack is Wolfpack, the 1988 series by Larry Hama, Ron Wilson, and Kyle Baker (at least for the first couple of issues) that was collected in print in August. The description:

They are Bronx teenagers chosen for their extraordinary abilities, trained in hand-to-hand combat by the mysterious Mr. Mack until their strength and courage are forged as hard as steel. They are…the Wolfpack! According to legend, they’re part of a millennia-old order that serves as righteous balance to the villainous Nine – a group completely devoid of compassion, mercy or charity. And together the ‘Pack will fight to save their home from anything the Nine can throw at them. They are martial artist Rafael Vega, bruiser “Slag” Slagley, ninja-skilled Slippery Sam, speedy Sharon and master-planner “Wheels” Wolinski -heroes for the mean streets of the 1980s! But with guns blazing and swords clashing, will all of them survive all-out war for the South Bronx?

When will Marvel go back to the good old days of no politics in their comics?! Wait, this came out 30 years ago? Oops, nevermind.

Another highlight is Fantastic Four: The Worlds Greatest Comic Magazine, featuring the work of creators like Erik Larsen and Eric Stephenson, picking up in 2001 from the end of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby‘s original Fantastic Four run like a sort of X-Men Forever for the Fantastic Four but without the original creators involved.

Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s legendary run on Fantastic Four lasted more than one hundred issues – and ended all too soon! Now, witness the continuing adventures of Marvel’s First Family, told as if Stan and Jack never left the book! Some of comics’ most talented creators join forces in this time-tossed tribute to the original Imaginauts! Featuring Dr. Doom, the Avengers, the X-Men, Thor, the Hulk, Daredevil, Black Panther, the Inhumans, the Sub-Mariner, the Silver Surfer, M.O.D.O.K., Annihilus and more! It’s an action-packed celebration of everything that made Stan and Jack’s Fantastic Four truly the World’s Greatest Comics Magazine!

Check out the full list from the press release below. Marvel Unlimited costs $9.99 a month and gives you access to an impressive back catalog of more than 20,000 Marvel comics, with a pretty damn good reading experience on a tablet with a decent display. It’s highly recommended.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
