Lux

This November, read the entire epic of Luxanna “Lux” Crownguard, the noble born mage who has been casting her spell on readers in her digital-first comic series! Soon, and for the first time in print, you can read her comic adaptation in full based on lore from Riot Games’ LEAGUE OF LEGENDS!

John O’Bryan, who has written for a number of animated TV shows including “Avatar: The Last Airbender,” is joined by the artists of Tan Studios, with penciling by Billy Tan, inks by Haining, and colors by Gadson. In Lux’s shining city of Demacia, order reigns. The realm is safe, and the people are happy…unless you’re a mage. In a place where ‘Mageseekers’ outlaw magic, Lux must hide who she truly is when she begins to exhibit light powers. But when she seeks out an imprisoned mage to learn to control her magic, will she protect herself…or doom Demacia?

In addition to delving into Demacia’s rich history, this adventure also features champions Garen and Sylas, and explores their relationships with Lux. Will Lux choose to stand with her brother Garen and the ruling class…or will she choose her place amongst the downtrodden Mages at the fringes of society? In the ultimate journey of self-discovery, Lux must straddle the line between her privileged birthright and her burgeoning abilities.

Whether you’re a fan of the game, or new to comics, this exceptional origin story is a great place to dive in. Preview this story now, and please visit Marvel.comfor more information.

Superior Spider-Man

This December, Otto Octavius will leave the moniker of Doctor Octopus behind…and forever become THE SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN! The new ongoing series will be penned by Christos Gage (Spider-Geddon) with art by Mike Hawthorne (Deadpool), a collaboration that will also mark a renewal of Hawthorne’s Marvel exclusive.

“I’m more than thrilled to renew my exclusive with the folks at Marvel,” Hawthorne said. “I want to emphasize folks’ here, as I think we often talk about Marvel as this big entity that just makes things happen. Marvel, to me, is the people that work day in and day out to try to make the best comics they can. They’re the ones that keep me coming back. I’m ecstatic to dedicate the next few years of my creative energies to adding to the Marvel Universe!”

Under the spectacular storytelling of Gage and Hawthorne, Otto will prove (one way or the other) that he’s the most effective Super Hero in the world! You think you’ve already read the most intense Superior Spider-Man story? Think again. This is a tale like no other!

“I had the great pleasure of collaborating with Dan Slott on his incredible Superior Spider-Man run, and I can’t wait for people to see this new chapter in Otto’s journey toward… redemption? Corruption? Triumph? Tragedy? That remains to be seen,” Gage shared with Marvel.com. “What I can tell you is that the appropriately superior artistic team of Mike Hawthorne, Wade Von Grawbadger, and Jordie Bellaire — titans of their field, all — are absolutely killing it on the art.”

“After drawing Deadpool for as long I did, I was a little heartbroken to be moving on,” Hawthorne said. “BUT, getting to work on a Spider-Man book has blunted that pain significantly! (Sorry, Wade). I’m thrilled to get a shot to work on such a flagship character! I think working specifically on Superior Spider-Man is a unique opportunity that’ll allow me to explore my own approach to a Spider-Man book. It gives me a chance to illustrate how Otto’s approach and demeanor differs from Peter, and to build on a story that I find very compelling. Christos, [editor] Nick [Lowe] and [editor] Kathleen [Wisneski] have shown a willingness to trust me and let me do my thing, which allows me to do my best work. Honestly, I haven’t been this excited to work on a new book since the beginning of Deadpool!”

CONAN THE BARBARIAN

New York, NY—This January, Conan makes his triumphant return to Marvel Comics in the all-new CONAN THE BARBARIAN! And today, Marvel is excited to announce the new creative team of the first series – the acclaimed team who will lead the famed barbarian into his new adventures!

Superstar writer Jason Aaron will helm the new tales of the sword-slashing hero, bringing him to life alongside star artist Mahmud Asrar (X-Men Red, Cloak and Dagger). Aaron and Asrar will be joined by cover artist Esad Ribic (Fantastic Four, Secret Wars, Marvel Legacy) and Eisner Award-winning colorist Matt Wilson (Runaways, The Mighty Thor.)

“I’ve literally been preparing for this job since I was 13 and discovered my first Robert E. Howard Conan paperback in a used bookstore in my little hometown of Jasper, Alabama,” said Aaron. “I devoured every Howard book I could find after that, and I’ve been making up Conan stories in my head ever since. Now I finally get to do that for real, alongside the amazing Mahmud Asrar. So this opportunity means an awful lot to me, and I’m cherishing every blood-splattered, spider-haunted second of it.”

“Growing up, Conan was one of the first comic books I’ve read. It’s partly responsible in making me a lifelong comic book reader,” said Asrar. “In fact, it’s the first book where I’ve noticed the names of the creators and that being a comic book artist was something I could do for a living. Now, years later, I get the chance to draw the book myself and do it with the amazing Jason Aaron. I couldn’t be happier to tell epic new tales of the Cimmerian – to continue the legacy that will hopefully make a mark on readers, just like the original comics did for me.”

“I can’t wait for readers to see the epic scope of the first story lined up for CONAN,” shared editor Mark Basso. “Like our illustrious writer and artist, my intro to Conan came in the form of an old paperback that magically found its way to me as a kid, and this team is harnessing all of that love and respect for the character’s history while expanding the Hyborian mythos in a way that’s really never been done before.”

“These past months have been an exciting whirlwind for us and the folks at Marvel, going through creative teams with passion for the Cimmerian,” added Fredrik Malmberg, President & CEO of Cabinet Entertainment. “Jason and Mahmud are crafting a really strong story, it’s amazing to see the process and pages coming through. Esad Ribic’s covers evoke the classic Conan, yet with his own distinct and personal freshness. Crom!”

This January, be prepared to witness Conan’s exploits, magic, and mayhem in an all-new series, starting with CONAN THE BARBARIAN #1!

X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN by Ed Piskor, The Definitive Remix of X-Men History

“Ed Piskor is one of the most exciting cartoonists working today and seeing the iconic X-men filtered through his singular vision is the sort of comic book project that you can usually only dream about. But this dream is real, and it is a thing to behold!” — Jeff Lemire (DESCENDER, MOON KNIGHT)

Marvel Comics and Eisner Award-winning indie cartoonist indie Ed Piskor are teaming up for an unexpected, unprecedented, and uncanny undertaking. Best known for documenting the history of hip hop with the award winning HIP HOP FAMILY TREE graphic novels, Ed Piskor will sample and distill more than 8,000 pages of superheroic storytelling to create a definitive remix of the first 280 original issues of X-Men comic books and 30 years of complicated continuity into one seamless masterpiece of superheroic storytelling. Piskor will write, draw, ink, color and letter all six 40 page issues of X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN, which Marvel will publish over three years as three separate but interconnected mini-series  X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN, X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN-SECOND GENESIS and  X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN-X-TINCTION.

“X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN is a tribute to everything comic book fans love about the X-Men from Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s original run and Chris Claremont’s, epic 16-year stint as the series’ writer,” said Piskor. “It’s a compelling and complete story with a beginning, middle and an end, featuring everything from Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, Cerebro and the Danger Room to the Mutant Massacre, the Reavers, Gambit, and Genosha.”

“Ed Piskor is a singular talent,” said Marvel Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso.  “And he is unleashing the same passion, craft and attention to detail that fuels his award-winning HIP-HOP FAMILY TREE on a five decades worth of X-Men stories.”

On December 9th, 2017, Marvel will publish the debut issue of X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN. On April 17, 2018, Marvel will collect both issues of X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN, as an oversized paperback collection in the same size and format as HIP HOP FAMILY TREE, and will also include the first issue of X-MEN by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby masterfully recolored by Piskor, and a host of recolored classic pinups. Each X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN trade paperback will feature a classic X-MEN comic book, recolored by Piskor.

What people are saying about X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN:

X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN is genius – an epic love letter to my favorite childhood comic. It’s pop culture journalism and comics history filtered through the imagination of a master storyteller. It’s a unique interpretation of the Marvel Universe and a pleasure to read. Every page is a thrill.”Jim Rugg (STREET ANGEL)

“Seeing a creator achieve a lifelong dream by pouring his heart and soul into a project is both rewarding and encouraging…. Ed’s retro artistic style and his love of the classic X-Men is going to propel GRAND DESIGN to the top of the selling chart and become a classic itself.”—MOVIEPILOT

Piskor’s art is at the height of its powers in these pages. New readers and old guard comic book fans will appreciate GRAND DESIGN’s streamlining and distillation of the X-MEN’s epic, but convoluted saga. We will discover Piskor invented a new approach to present legendary past stories. Instead of starting a news series at issue #1 we’re better off in the retelling and refining of wonderfully raw past material we adore. It worked for Homer why not comics.”Benjamin Marra, (NIGHT BUSINESS, TERROR ASSAULTER: O.M.W.O.T.)

“Unprecedented.”—PITTSBURGH CITY PAPER

“Ed is crazy enough to take thousands of X-Men pages and filter them through his own vision. He’s passionate enough to pull it off, too, as this isn’t simply an archival exercise. By tying all those pages together, Ed skillfully equips the material with a logic that was absent before, thus meeting our obsessive culture’s modern expectations. It’s a blast, this comic.” Michael Fiffe (COPRA, ZEGAS)
