Marvel NOW!

Postby maxchong7 » Wed Jul 04, 2012 2:25 pm

I've recently been reading some stuff on a Marvel Reboot said to reset the Marvel Universe just like DC's new 52.
I saw it in some facebook posts. Is 'Marvel Now' confirmed? What do we know about it? So far I've been able to see only one concept art. I hope that this 'reboot' thing is a joke.

What do you think about it?

I hadn't heard of it, but I ran a search and this article came up. Looks pretty confirmed to me.

I wonder what Remender working on Uncanny Avengers is going to mean for Uncanny X-Force.

From what I've read it isn't a reboot like with New 52.

I read they are launching a ton of new series, but it is the same continuity just new series all at a good point for new readers.

Marvel just sent out this press release:

The Future of Comics is Marvel NOW!
Top Comic Book Series ReEvolve With All New #1 Issues Beginning October 2012

New York. NY—July 6, 2012— The most popular characters. The most acclaimed creators. The most ambitious stories. This is Marvel NOW!.

This Fall, the Marvel Universe heads in an exciting all-new direction, as the industry’s top creators join the top Super Heroes-- Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Spider-Man, Wolverine and more-- to deliver all-new ongoing series, each beginning with issue #1! Marvel NOW! is the culmination of Marvel ReEvolution, the groundbreaking new initiative to evolve the comic book experience through innovation.

It kicks off in October’s Uncanny Avengers #1, from the superstar dream team of Rick Remender (Uncanny X-Force, Venom) and John Cassaday (Astonishing X-Men, Captain America) and continues with jaw-dropping new Marvel NOW! series nearly every week through February.

“There’s never been a better time to check out comics than Marvel NOW!” said Axel Alonso, Editor in Chief, Marvel Entertainment. “This isn’t a reboot or a reimagining—Marvel NOW! is all about looking forward, building on our rich history of great stories and delivering new ideas.”

In Uncanny Avengers #1, the Avengers and X-Men must join forces to overcome the greatest challenge either team has ever faced, one so devastating that neither can afford to do it alone! Can Captain America’s newly assembled team find a way to peacefully co-exist while also dealing with the game-changing repercussions of Avengers VS X-Men?

Then in November, Marvel NOW! expands to all corners of the universe with launches including All-New X-Men #1 by Brian Michael Bendis (Avengers VS. X-Men, Ultimate Comics Spider-Man) and Stuart Immonen (Avengers VS. X-Men #1 Infinite, Fear Itself); Avengers #1 by Jonathan Hickman (Avengers VS X-Men, Fantastic Four) and Jerome Opena (Uncanny X-Force), on-sale in December; and New Avengers #1, by Hickman and Steve Epting (FF, Captain America), on-sale in January 2013.

“We brought fans the biggest comic book event imaginable in Avengers VS. X-Men and now we’re taking the Marvel Universe to an exciting new place, beginning with Uncanny Avengers #1,” said Tom Brevoort, SVP, Executive Editor, Marvel Entertainment. “If you’re a long-time fan, all the stories you’ve read will give you even more enjoyment of what’s happening now—we’re not abandoning our past. But if you’re a new reader, this is where you’re going to learn just why Marvel comics are unlike anything else you’ve ever read. And no character is left unaffected by Marvel NOW!.”

Every comic book bearing the Marvel NOW! branding includes a code for a free digital copy of that same comic on the Marvel Comics app for iOS and Android devices. Additionally, each issue #1 of Marvel NOW! series features special augmented reality content available exclusive through the Marvel AR app – including cover recaps, behind the scenes features and more that add value to your reading experience at no additional cost.

“This is the natural next step of the Marvel ReEvolution, as we evolve every facet of Marvel publishing,” explained Joe Quesada, Chief Creative Officer, Marvel Entertainment. “You’ve seen us craft new digital storytelling formats like Marvel Infinite Comics and bring added value to our comics with Marvel AR. Now our print comics leap into the future with a cinematic new look for our covers, exciting new designs for our biggest characters and stories that will send you on the kind of journey you can only get at Marvel.”

This October, “Join The ReEvolution” as Marvel NOW! kicks off with Uncanny Avengers #1, ushering in a new era for comics and the perfect jumping on point for new readers. The biggest creators bring you the biggest characters in the biggest stories…and it’s happening NOW!

To commemorate the historic release of Uncanny Avengers #1 on Wednesday, October 10th, participating retailers can host special advance release parties the night before! That’s right, you can experience the biggest new series launch of the year on Tuesday, October 9th at select retailers, who’ll also have limited edition giveaways exclusive to these events.

Thanks for sharing this, man. So it's true. I hate it, Marvel's not like it was before anymore. The so called 'acclaimed' creators and writers know only about making huge events getting almost every characters in almost every books. We need to buy like 15 titles to follow an event. Wasn't Secret Wars good enough?

They say this is not a reboot, and that both old and new readers would like it. Would it not be better to create another continuity like Ultimate Comics for their 'Marvel NOW!' I miss the old comics where normal street-level heroes were on their own and were not part in any super powerful teams. Spider-man, Moon Knight, Daredevil, all ****ed up.

Another press release from Marvel

Image
This October, dive headfirst into Marvel NOW! as the superstar dream team of Rick Remender (Uncanny X-Force, Venom) and John Cassaday (Astonishing X-Men, Captain America) deliver high stakes action in UNCANNY AVENGERS #1 - sporting a jaw-dropping cover by Cassaday! No fan can miss the blockbuster debut of an all-new Avengers team featuring members from all across the Marvel Universe...a team uniting Avenger and X-Man alike! But following the devastating events of Avengers VS X-Men, can Captain America pull together a team that can get along for its first mission? Plus, Uncanny Avengers #1 is the first title to sport the all-new Marvel NOW! cover design!

“We’re no longer going to be locked into where our logos are placed, which has traditionally been the top third of our covers, and we’re going to start to look at our covers with an eye towards strong design and commerciality above all else, explained Marvel Chief Creative Officer, Joe Quesada. “What’s going to attract the reader’s eye, what's going to make them want to buy that particular title? That's the first question our artists and editors are going to ask themselves.”

Also! Every new issue with the Marvel NOW! branding comes packaged with a code for a FREE digital copy on the Marvel Comics app.

And that’s not all because readers will be able to take the Marvel NOW! experience even further by unlocking access to exclusive behind the scenes extras utilizing special augmented reality technology with the Marvel AR app powered by Aurasma.

Thor looks good.
Wolverine and Cap look the same. Rogue's almost the same. Gonna hate Scarlet Witch's new costume. Is that Havoc next to Thor? Bleh, I prefer his classic costume.
Cover does not look good imo. There's no feeling in it, just characters posing. Uncanny X- Force's covers were a lot better.

Dang. And don't we all remember Marvel's "point one initiative"? Ouch. What's wrong with these guys.

Over at IGN, they posted an article saying Marvel revealed the titles that'll be ending in light of marvel NOW... neither Deadpool nor Uncanny X-force were on that list. So it'll be interesting to see who takes over for Remender or if he'll juggle his two uncanny titles. And we all know Way is definitely leaving. Hopefully Marvel NOW is a fresh start for DP.

Invincible Iron Man IS on that list however. It'll be hard to see that book go. Fraction's run has been unreal.
