Creator Kelly Thompson, along with artist Carmen Carnero, will be continuing the incredible adventures of Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel, marking 50 years since the character’s introduction. The fan favorite will be finding her way back to New York City to reconnect with old friends like Iron Man and her best friend Spider-Woman. You can count on some out-of-this-world adventures along with a bit of romance to round it all off, making an amazing story. Captain Marvel #1 will be hitting shelves on January 9th, 2019.
With the passing of the industry’s most beloved legend, Stan Lee, Marvel will be commemorating his life with a special trade dress on twenty-nine titles. Starting in December and running through January, fans will be able to purchase tributes to Lee from their favorite series. Here is the list of issues that will get the commemorative treatment:
The Uncanny X-Men return in a new weekly, 10-part series, ominously titled “Disassembled.” Fans will not want to miss how creative team Matthew Rosenberg, Kelly Thompson, Ed Brisson, Mahmud Asrar, R.B. Silva, Yildiray Cinar and Pete Perez will take everyone’s favorite mutants into a whole new and refreshing realm. Expect a mind blowing cover from artist Leinil Francis Yu in his signature style. Uncanny X-Men #1 will hit shelves on November 14th.
The creator and artist duo Scott Snyder and Jock, respectively, return with The Batman Who Laughs #1. The scene is set in a beautifully macabre world where Batman will face a twisted and sinister version of… himself: a gun obsessed, harbinger of Doom who appears quite capable of handling whatever is thrown (or shot) his way. Think of a cross between The Batman and The Punisher, one that got into guns after shooting this world’s version of Joe Chill.
Creator Scott Snyder had this to say:
It's another one of Batman's worst nightmares. This is like Punisher Batman, but it's also Bruce Wayne, which makes him terrifying...he's rich, he has access to everything. He's the deadliest Dark Knight ever and he's coming to the DC Universe as a henchman of the Batman who Laughs.

“In this debut issue, when Earth’s space cop, Hal Jordan, encounters an alien hiding in plain sight, it sets off a chain of events that rocks the Green Lantern Corps—and quite possibly the Multiverse at large—to its very core. There’s an inter-galactic conspiracy afoot, as well as a traitor in the GL Corps’ ranks, so strap in for more mind-bending adventures in this masterpiece in the making.” -DC Comics
