New York, NY—July 31st, 2015 — Their legend echoes through history. Ancient warriors and wielders of the legendary Ebony Blade. Champions of their own destiny.

Find out this November as the creative team of Frank Tieri (Wolverine) and Luca Pizzari (Red Skull) bring you BLACK KNIGHT #1 – a brand-new ongoing series launching as part of All-New, All-Different Marvel!
Forged by ancient magic, long has the Ebony Blade granted its user the powers of the Black Knight, passed down through the centuries. But all power comes with a price, as each and every Black Knight has met an untimely end – a victim of the blade’s curse. Will Dane Whitman’s fate be the same? The long-time Avenger’s addiction to the blade grows stronger and stronger every day. Will he succumb to its power and suffer the same end?
A lost man himself, Dane now finds himself in Weirdworld, the place where all lost things go. What are the circumstances that brought him to this strange place, so far from the world he called home? And what could he possibly have done that would cause the Uncanny Avengers to mobilize against him, a man they called friend?

A feeling like there’s something else going on inside. When terror strikes her small town, she’ll find out just how right she was.

New York, NY – April 17, 2015 – You know him. You love him. Prepare to see a side of him you’ve never seen before as the galaxy’s smoothest gambler, entrepreneur, and smuggler gets his very own series! Today, Marvel Entertainment and Lucasfillm Ltd. are pleased to announce LANDO #1 – a brand new Star Wars limited series coming this July from Marvel Comics! Join Lando on his greatest caper ever as blockbuster creators Charles Soule (Death of Wolverine, Inhuman, She-Hulk) and Alex Maleev (Daredevil, Spider-Woman, Moon Knight) bring you a new tale of a scoundrel in his natural element – trouble!
“Is Lando Calrissian the coolest character in all of Star Wars? Depends on who you ask, probably. But if you ask me, the answer is yes, and I plan to prove it with this story,” says series writer Charles Soule.
Before he joined the rebellion, before he oversaw mining operations on Bespin – he was just Lando. Making his way in the galaxy and getting by on good looks, charm, and an ace up his sleeve (sometimes literally). With his cyborg aide Lobot at his side, Lando has plans to steal one of the galaxy’s most valuable ships. Yet even with his swindles and unparalleled swagger – has he bitten off more than he can chew?
“Before Cloud City, before his glorious Death Star run,” continues Soule, “Lando Calrissian was just a man trying to make his way through an uncaring universe determined not to recognize that he was undeniably the coolest man in the galaxy. But Lando’s got a plan to change all that… and it starts with the deal of a lifetime.”
Created in close partnership with Lucasfilm, this new Marvel Comics limited series will exist as part of the canon for the Star Wars universe! Once again, Marvel brings the biggest creators in the industry to the biggest characters in a galaxy far, far away. Be there when the Star Wars line expands this July in LANDO #1!
This April, the silent Inhuman king rises from the ashes. And everything you thought you knew about Black Bolt is about to change. Prepare for UNCANNY INHUMANS #0 – the epic prelude to a brand new ongoing series from the chart-topping Death of Wolverine creative team of Charles Soule (Inhuman, She-Hulk) and Steve McNiven (Civil War, Old Man Logan)!
“Just like Guardians of the Galaxy #0 gave you a great ‘in’ to the Guardians, UNCANNY INHUMANS #0 arms you with a great starting point to the Inhumans!” says Senior Editor Nick Lowe.
The stoic Inhuman king, able to level mountains with a whisper has struck out on his own – seemingly leaving his Queen and his very race to fend for themselves. But is that the whole story? Now, follow his adventures as he strikes out on a new mission. A lone wolf and a king without a throne, Black Bolts endeavors will send him on a direct collision course with one of the Avengers’ greatest foes – Kang the Conqueror!
The top comic in October, The Walking Dead #132, sold over 326,000 copies, according to indexes provided by Diamond Comic Distributors and calculations by ICv2. That’s over 250,000 more than the subsequent issue; Loot Crate did a variant for its October crate. If the full difference from #133 is due to Loot Crate, it’s been growing; that’s a bigger difference than the apparent sales bump on Rocket Raccoon#1, the last title so affected, which sold in 293,000 copies.
The Walking Dead was only part of the good news; there were seven titles with sales of over 100,000 in October, the strongest month at the top in recent memory. Five of the titles over 100,000 were Marvels, including Death of Wolverine, which accomplished the amazing feat of increasing sales from #2 to #3, and from #3 to #4. An unplanned delay in shipping for the ostensibly weekly book, which created a gap between #2 and #3, may have helped sales on the later issues by giving retailers time to increase their orders after seeing the sales on #1 and #2.
Two comics in the Top 10, one over 100,000 and one just under, starred female characters: the new Thor #1 and Harley Quinn Annual #1, which had featured the notorious “Scent-icular” technology (and also featured an order what you want “Bombshells” Variant and “International Editions.”). Two graphic novels in the Top 10 also starred female characters, Ms. MarvelVol. 1 TP and Harley Quinn Vol. 1: Hot in the City HC.
