Secret Wars #5 hits stands next week, marking the halfway point of Marvel‘s worlds-changing, universe-shaking event that will mean that Everything Will Change. Whether you believe that or not, the company has already announced a slew of new titles premiering after the maxiseries concludes that have a wealth of potential, the family of Spider-titles in particular. However, one of the new series I’m particularly looking forward to is writer Brian Michael Bendis‘ move to an Iron Man solo title, on sale October 7th. Check out these preview pages for Invincible Iron Man #1 from Bendis and artist David Marquez that Marvel was kind enough to share!
Of course, we’ve seen Bendis write for Tony Stark for before in the various Avengers titles he’s helmed, as well as a whole host of crossover events, but he’s not yet tackled a solo series featuring the genius, somewhat-broken golden sentinel. It’ll be interesting to see what Bendis does when laser-focused on Tony’s world. As for Marquez, his style, which is very reminiscent (to me, at least) of Jim Cheung’s work seems to be a perfect fit for the combination of sleek lines and deeply human elements needed to pull this book off. The first issue of Invincible Iron Man hits in October and I’m curious to see what the creative team pulls off. Check out the official press release below!
This Fall, the Marvel Universe is reforged and recharged as All-New, All-Different Marvel kicks off in full force! New titles, new characters, and new creators explode on to the scene as only Marvel could bring you. Leading the charge for this movement is the blockbuster new title INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #1 – from the explosive creative team of Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your new look at the highly anticipated first issue coming to comic shops on October 7th!
Exploding out of the pages of Secret Wars comes a fresh new take on the Armored Avenger in a gigantic new series! New armor, new villains, a new supporting cast and a new purpose as Tony Stark bursts across the landscape of the Marvel Universe. And a shocker of a last page that will have the entire comic industry talking! Plus, questions will be answered – what really happened at the end of Secret Wars #8? Who are Tony Stark’s biological parents? The quest begins here!
Strap in and suit up, True Believer. The marquee comic launch of the fall is coming as Bendis and Marquez armor up to bring you a new Iron Man for a new Marvel Universe. Don’t miss the blockbuster INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #1 – on sale October 7th!
