J.J. Abrams and Henry Abrams Make Their Marvel Comics Debut With SPIDER-MAN #1

The secret is out! This September, legendary filmmaker J.J. Abrams (Star Wars, Star Trek, Super 8) and his son Henry Abrams will co-write SPIDER-MAN, a five-issue limited series years in the making, with art by the incredible Sara Pichelli (Miles Morales, Guardians Of The Galaxy) and cover art by the amazing Olivier Coipel!

Speaking to The New York Times, J.J. teased, “The story shows Peter Parker in a way you haven’t seen him before.”

“Spider-Man is one of those super heroes where the more you read about him, for me at least, the less I understand him,” added Henry. “He’s so anti-everything that you’d expect from a hero. I think Stan Lee said something about putting the human in superhuman. That is what we’re trying to do.”

Together, the father-son duo will introduce fans to a mysterious new villain named Cadaverous – whose identity remains to be seen…but what do they have planned for Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson?!

All will be revealed this fall in SPIDER-MAN #1!

 

For more information on this exciting new limited series, check out the announcement video on Marvel’s social channels or visit Marvel.com.

WAR OF THE REALMS: NEW AGENTS OF ATLAST #1

In a story spinning out of WAR OF THE REALMS, hit characters from the popular mobile RPG game MARVEL Future Fight join Marvel’s newest heroes from China, along with its newest Filipina sensation for an all-new story! Suit up as Luna Snow, Crescent and Io, Aero and Swordmaster, and Wave join Marvel mainstays Kamala Khan, Amadeus Cho, Cindy Moon, and Shang-Chi to fight Malekith’s forces on Earth!

Writer Greg Pak and artist Gang-Hyuk Lim bring new and exciting heroes to life in an all-new story with WAR OF THE REALMS: NEW AGENTS OF ATLAS #1, which has received critical acclaim from comic fans and critics alike – and Marvel is excited to announce that the first issue will return to comic shops for a second printing.

“Having read a bunch of War of the Realms tie-ins, I gotta say this might be my favorite. The action is great, the art (by Gang Hyuk Lim, Federico Blee, and Clayton Cowles) is beautiful, and there’s some really fantastic character work that helps you identify with the characters.” – Rogues Portal

“Greg Pak and Gang Hyuk Lim have crafted a great issue filled with lovable second-string characters…Jimmy Woo’s Atlas team is wonderfully diverse and bounce off one another brilliantly, both in combat and camaraderie.” – Comic Book Resources

“Greg Pak has always kept character as a priority for his books and it’s fun to see how he’s exploring the team book here.” – AiPT!

A Jovial Jashn

Superheroes walking the corridors, live art performances, a car show, and a DJ night. What sounds like a unforgettable music festival was the star attraction of the Dubai International Academic City where its annual event titled Jashn was celebrated. Literally translating to ‘celebration’, JASHN 2018 stepped up to the occasion by centering on a theme that seemed to be at the tip of everyone’s tongue-comic books and movies. The Dubai Campus of BITS Pilani raised the bar once again by setting up one of the most elaborate stages in the region inviting the best to showcase their skills. And with the atmosphere of Marvel and DC to drive the festivities, the event proved to be a great crowd-puller for students and teens. The inaugural ceremony occurred on the 16th of April and was marked by a musical evening by the musicians of the campus followed by a stage play round and a fashion show by the group called Drape. To conclude the evening in a round of laughter and splits, popular Indian comic Biswa Kalyan took to the stage and left the audience wanting for more.

The second day for was an energetic extension with further competitions defined by quizzes, musicals, musical battles and a lot more. The next day attracted a great crowd for the detective themed scavenge hunt titled ‘CSI’ followed by instrumental competitions, dancing doubles, a fashion show round and a guest performance by the artist Rooh. All the while, the crowd outside were being entertained by a high octane road show featuring the best cars. But the level had to be raised further as the campus closed the event with a awe-inspiring round of competitions attracting students with an artistic touch with a solo stage play round, a poetry slam competition, a group dance show off and finally a DJ performance by the duo Sunburn- Siana Caherine and Zephyrtone.

JASHN 2018 La Comic Fiesta had achieved the same mass appeal of the very comic brands it endorsed and plans on scaling new heights with the coming years.
