My Thoughts, Solicited returns for the new year! And what a way to start 2015 with what’s in store this month! An old friend comes back to Marvel after over two decades away while Marvel also prepares their first weekly ongoing series! DC inches closer to Convergence, with what possibly could be another universe reboot (as far as rumors go) and Spawn hits a landmark anniversary issue! All that and more, so look on ahead and see what’s what!

It’s a month of crazy on both sides of this spectrum and there is no loser as we, the comic readers, pretty much come out the victors. June is a special month for DC as new Superman artist John Romita Jr. begins his run on the series. Lobo shows up again, this time in Justice League United as he goes man-o a man-o with Hawkguy while elsewhere we get treated to Batwoman’s and Red Robin’s origin. Lemire and Sorrentino decide to break Green Arrow and Batman gets ready to wrap up its year long Zero Year storyline with The Riddler! Meanwhile at Marvel, it’s an Original Sin overload as Original Sins tie-in mini series is introduced. The Hulk goes Savage while the New Avengers take on Marvel’s version of the Justice League. Miles Morales has a lot going on and a certain Black Cat is out for revenge.
A day late and a dollar short, but nevertheless I come out of Tartarus itself to make sure you still get to see what Marvel’s October highlights are. Infinity keeps rolling on! Thunderbolts get to come out and plaaa-i-aaay! Battle of the Atom comes to a surprising end with twists and turns along in its second half and Astonishing X-Men gets to go to that big house in the sky. Now where are we going to see a shirtless Gambit?
Marvel’s setting up a very hot summer for comics and here’s a low-down of some of the books you’ll want to keep on your radar. Let them set up the delicious dishes for you to om-nom-nom all over.
Comic fans everywhere know that after every major summer comic event comes the “forever changes for the universe” that really only means a change for a few months until the next comic event starts. Think of it as the comic event being the baseball season, stretching from Spring to Autumn and the “change” being the offseason. Players change teams, some retire, and everyone else gets ready for go at it again come Winter’s end. But this time, is Marvel actually keeping the “change” they said was happening after Avengers vs X-Men? It really seems like they are. While it’s not the same kind of change people saw after previous events, this is a change that seems like it’ll be sticking around for some time to come. The Marvel Universe isn’t drastically different, but it’s different enough to notice not everything is the same around the board. And that’s not only in roster wise for teams, but creative changes as well for the books’ driving forces as well.
