All New All Different Marvel – Week 11

Feeling burned out? Too many new books? Too many Inhumans crashing the woe-is-me mutant pity party? Marvel gets it. So howsabout another light helping of series premieres for week eleven, all of which are genuinely New and Different.

James Robinson follows up Scarlet Witch with a jaw-dropping introduction to the new Squadron Supreme. Starbrand & Nightmask makes another attempt at preserving Jim Shooter’s New Universe legacy. And Mike Del Mundo brings us back to the realm of castoff swords and misfit sorcery in Weirdworld.

The first trade collections of these new series are being released in April, so the Idle Time focus group plans to wrap up our rankings and reviews by the end of March. That doesn’t mean Marvel is slowing down in the new year, however. Check out the announcement for the new Black Panther book, debuting in April.

Squadron Supreme #1

This is a bold new book. A new team of hyper-powered heroes and “the morals of Frank Castle” let loose on [spoiler]. It is a shame to see my beloved [spoiler] killed but the shock value is high. A well earned gasp is hard to achieve in a comic these days, so well done, Squadron Supreme. Also the initials of the team are SS, just saying. The art here is good, though not exactly memorable, with the exception of another fantastic cover from Alex Ross. This is a book with serious promise. I’m onboard. – IP
