(Alexander tipsar om vad som dyker upp på de amerikanska seriehyllorna i mars 2023.)

Då är det dags att gå igenom januari månads katalog för serier som kommer i mars månad med omnejd och jag börjar med Marvelkatalogen. Tidningarna kommer i mars, däremot kan albumen komma mycket senare då de tar längre tid att producera.

Krakoa is on a precipice. Destiny alone can see what’s coming – but the precog cannot act. For that, she’ll need her adoptive daughter, Rogue.

Powerhouse writer Stephanie Phillips (Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, Millie the Spy) joins fan-favorite artist Carlos Gómez (X-Terminators, Amazing Spider-Man) for a thrill ride that’ll lay bare some of Krakoa’s biggest secrets!

Kommentar: Dr. Strange är tillbaka med en ny fortgående titel, Hellcat får en miniserie som tar vid efter hennes medverkan i Iron Man och The X-Cellent får en ny miniserie som tar vid där den förra slutade.

Predator får en andra serie sedan Marvel fick licensen och Women of Marvel firas med serier av kvinnliga serieskapare. Det blir också nya miniserier med Cosmic Ghost Rider och Rogue and Gambit.

Long before the internet, True Believers of the 1980s got the inside scoop on Marvel’s upcoming projects in the pages of MARVEL AGE! Now, the first three years’ worth of this fan-favorite promotional magazine are reprinted in full — a veritable treasure trove of big-name interviews, previews of the major titles of 1982-1985, behind-the-scenes features, rare house ads, stunning covers and, of course, the classic cartoons of the legendary Fred Hembeck! All this, plus an exclusive in-universe Annual story covering the length and breadth of the Marvel Universe!

Kommentar: På albumfronten blir det Marvel Masterworks Ghost Rider vol. 5, Thor Epic Collection vol. 9 och om man inte har det tidiga materialet från Guardians of the Galaxy sedan innan så får man en ny chans med Epic Collection vol. 1. Känner man sig sedan 80-talsnostalgisk så kommer Marvel Age Omnibus vol. 1 som fokuserar på åren 1982-1985 av detta klassiska promotionsmagasin, även om jag personligen inväntar att detta kommer i ett billigare format.

In the 1980s, writer Steve Gerber was embroiled in a lawsuit against Marvel Comics over ownership of his creation Howard The Duck. To raise funds for legal fees, Gerber asked Jack Kirby to contribute to a benefit comic titled Destroyer Duck. Without hesitation, Kirby, in his own dispute with Marvel at the time, donated his services for the first issue, and the duo took aim at their former employer in an outrageous five-issue run. With biting satire and guns blazing, Duke ”Destroyer” Duck battled the thinly veiled Godcorp (whose infamous credo was ”Grab it all! Own it all! Drain it all!”), its evil leader Ned Packer and the (literally) spineless Booster Cogburn, Medea (a parody of Daredevil’s Elektra), and more! Now, all five Gerber/Kirby issues are collected. relettered and reproduced from Jack’s unbridled, uninked pencil art! Also included are select examples of Alfredo Alcala’s unique inking style over Kirby on the original issues, Gerber’s script pages, an historical Introduction by Mark Evanier, and an Afterword by Buzz Dixon.
