Frankensteining Marvel Comics April 2019 Solicitations – Princess Leia, Thanos and War Of The Realms

Posted by January 21, 2019 Comment

We’ve stitched together what we could find of Marvel Comics’ plans for April 2019, titles ahead of this week’s solicitations…

Take a look at what’s coming.

Web Of Venom: Cult Of Carnage by Frank Tieri and Danilo S. Beyruth.

A new terror rises on the fringes of the Marvel Universe, stirring in the depths of space…and on Earth, evil is rising in the name of the killer called Carnage.

STAR WARS: GALAXY’S EDGE #1 by Ethan Sacks and Will Sliney

Pirates, smugglers, merchants, and wanderers from across the galaxy have traveled to make their score or sell their wares at the infamous black market located at Black Spire Outpost on Batuu.

In April, journey to this locale in the Outer Rim in the new Marvel Star Wars comic series Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, which ties into the new lands opening at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort later this year.

Readers of the five-issue miniseries will be the first to meet the infamous Dok-Ondar, the Ithorian collector of rare antiquities, and find out what happens when the First Order reaches the edge of wild space. The key to saving this lawless outpost might just involve a job pulled long ago by none other than Han Solo and his cohort Chewbacca.

PUNISHER: AVENGER OF MIDGARD!
The War of The Realms has brought monsters to the streets of New York City, but New York has a monster all its own…Frank Castle, A.K.A. THE PUNISHER! And he’ll be damned to Hel if he’s going to let a bunch of Ten Realms tin-pot tyrants terrorize his town. But given he’s one man against an army of monsters, Hel might soon have him!

ASGARDIAN VARIANT COVER BY TBA
WAR OF THE REALMS TIE-IN!
Fatherly love is not something with which Loki Laufeyson is terribly familiar. Still, you’d think that with the Frost Giants invading New York in Malekith’s WAR OF THE REALMS, he’d find some quality time to spend with dear old deadly Dad. And he will. But not in the way you’d think…

Bit by bit, the Dark Elf King Malekith has been taking over the Ten Realms. Now at last every realm has fallen save one: Midgard. The invasion has begun, and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will need all the help they can get. The Asgardians of the Galaxy join the battle for the Tenth Realm!


War Of The Realms #1 by Jason Aaron, artist Russell Dauterman, and colorist Matt Wilson

Asgard. Alfheim. Heven. Jotunheim. Muspelheim. Niffleheim. Nidavellir. Svartalfheim. Vanaheim.

All of the Ten Realms have fallen to Malekith and his army…except one: Midgard. Home to Thor’s beloved humans. Home to heroes and gods alike. Now, at last, it burns. And Thor won’t even be there to see it.

All hell breaks loose in New York City as Malekith and his allies begin their invasion—and the greatest heroes of the Marvel Universe watch as Earth falls…

 

War Of The Realms: Journey Into Mystery #1 by the McElroy Brothers andAndré Lima Araújo

Earth is at war, besieged by an army of Frost Giants, Trolls and Fire Goblins—and the mighty Thor is nowhere to be found! But could it be that the key to turning the tide is…Thor’s baby sister? Journey into mystery with Spider-Man (Miles Morales), Hawkeye (Kate Bishop), Wonder Man, and Balder the Brave as they go on an epic quest to save Earth’s only hope! (And, yes, deal with diaper duty.)

THANOS #1 by Tini Howard and Ariel Olivetti

On Sale 4/24/19

This April, the fate of Latveria, the world, and the balance of Cosmic Power in the Marvel Universe all rests on one big decision – and one cruel act will forever change the relationship between the Fantastic Four and Victor Von Doom! It’s the terrifying, epic, and final chapter of “Herald of Doom,” coming this April, and Marvel is excited to reveal a brand-new cover from series artist Esad Ribic!

“This isn’t about heroes or villains,” teases series writer Dan Slott. “This is about justice. Reed Richards and his team were warned what would happen if they illegally entered Latveria. The word of Doom is final. This is out of his hands. For their crimes against this sovereign state, the sentence is…DEATH TO THE FANTASTIC FOUR!”

Jack Russell, cursed to be a Werewolf-by-Night! And the flame-skulled spirit of vengeance, the Ghost Rider! But what happens when they are forced together to become…the Legion of Monsters?
