Notes on Marvel Solicitations for Feb., 2012 | November 21, 2011

Avengers: The Crossing in hardcover? Why would anyone buy that? It was TERRIBLE.

Did ANYONE like the Crossing?

Hey, Avengers 1959 is coming in a TPB. Anyone want to guess whether I am buying it?


I will be buying the new Winter Soldier series. Brubaker and Guice… in other words, this series picks up where the old series left off before it switched to Captain America & Bucky.

Still looking forward to the new Defenders book. Fraction & Dodson are now taking them to Wundagore Mountain! Cool.

The Serpent Squad is back in Captain America. Remember when they turned Ronald Reagan into a giant snake-thing? Good times…

I wonder if Avengers Academy will have a sales uptick after Tom Grummet takes over on art. Would be nice.

The ‘New Era’ of Secret Avengers begins! Remender & Hardman and Hawkeye leading the team! Back to a ‘no-killing policy’! I am NOT a fan of the current run of the book so I really looking forward to this.

All the Ultimate books are coming polybagged. Grrrr…..

I’m not getting it, but the Venom thing is interesting. They are basically shoving a miniseries INTO a series, by numbering the issues 13.1 – 13.4. I guess they figure that will get the regular readers of Venom to buy it. If I read Venom, it would work on me… The mini includes Ghost Rider and X-23. Wrapping up cancelled books?

Just last night as Ruthanne was reading Avengers Academy, I mentioned that Alex and Julie Powers are appearing regularly in books now, but what about Katie and Jack? Why don’t they get any love? The answer is: FF #15 guest starring Power Pack!

Thunderbolts will still be ‘back in time’ in FEBRUARY. That feels like it is going to be too long.

The Twelve is back? Really? I’ll believe it when I see it.

Was Brilliant always a miniseries? (I think I asked the same thing about Scarlet at one time…)



  1. Brian Michael Bendis has corrected Previews: Brilliant is NOT a miniseries.

  2. […] a background mini-series in parallel to the main series (just like the Venom run from the last Marvel Solicits). These issues are fleshing out the background of the world the comic is set in. The first one of […]
