Is anybody else feeling the All-New Ghost Rider series by Felipe Smith and Tradd Moore? I know it’s only been one issue so far, but still, this story concept and art is nothing short of awesome. Tradd Moore is going to go a long way with his art in the Marvel U. If you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, Marvel just released the first issue to their relaunch of Ghost Rider, welcoming the Spirit of Vengeance to the MARVEL NOW! family.
This time, the Spirit of Vengeance has his hooks in Robbie Reyes, a high school senior just trying to survive on the mean streets of East Los Angeles. With his hellfire-powered car, Reyes will avenge the deaths of innocents like the Ghost Riders that came before him. Solicitation below:
The story starts in Engine of Vengeance Pt. 1, "A street race leads a young man on the FAST and FURIOUS of destiny. Amid an East Los Angeles neighborhood running wild with gang violence and drug trafficking, a war brews in the criminal underworld! With four on the floor, Marvel’s newest GHOST RIDER puts vengeance in overdrive!!!”

With the exception of Ultimatum and the death of Peter Parker, I’ve never been all that interested in the Ultimate Universe, but if you’ve been following more closely than I have, then you know there’s been a lot changes in the status quo on that side of the Marvel U. The most interesting to me to come about is the All-New Ultimates team line-up. Following a series of unimaginable destructive events the world must rebuild itself, but in times like this, heroes are needed more than ever! Behold the next generation of Ultimates – as Spider-Man, Black Widow, Kitty Pryde, Bombshell and Cloak & Dagger unite to stand up against a vicious, rampant crime wave plaguing the streets of New York City! Brought to you by the critically acclaimed creator Michel Fiffe and rising star Amilcar Pinna!
I think this series is just what we need. From the looks of it, this youthful team of heroes are going to be battling crime and stopping super villains dead in their tracks, all the while dealing with homework and teen drama. What more can you ask for in a comic book, right?
“It’s a war zone in the streets of New York, Hell’s Kitchen in particular.” says Michel Fiffe, in an interview with Marvel.com. “Certain neighborhoods have been torn apart by the recent galactic cataclysm and crime is exponentially growing; local super-powered gangs rule the environment. That’s where Miles and the gang come in, to act with a grittier, more immediate problem while trying to find their own footing as super heroes.”
The future of the Ultimate Universe begins here! Don’t miss out as All-New Ultimates hit the shelves this April 2014!@3 weeks ago with 7 notes
The WATCHER has been murdered, and the only question left in his wake is “WHO DID IT?” In Original Sin, Marvel’s biggest and baddest will team up to solve the crime of the millennium; to find out who killed the WATCHER!Brought to you by the creative team of writer Jason Aaron and artist Mike Deodato, Original Sin will bring the Marvel Universe to its knees as the its deepest, darkest secrets are out! The story picks up as Nick Fury bands together a team of earth heroes— including Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Punisher, Doctor Strange, Emma Frost, Ant-Man and Black Panther—to launch the biggest investigation the Marvel U. has ever seen . Here’s what Jason Aaron had to say:
"When the heroes find The Watcher’s body on the moon, his eyes are gone," Aaron said. "The Watcher’s eyes are really the secret to unlocking everything he’s witnessed over the years. Whoever holds one of the eyes is able to explode a bomb full of secrets and unleash all the various secrets of the Marvel Universe into the wild through that eye."
Described as the “ultimate NSA leak of the Marvel Universe” by Senior Vice President of Publishing Tom Brevoort, who continued on to say, “He knows where all the bodies are buried, including ones that none of our readers know are there.”
