Press Release:

This March, the smash-hit series begins a new semester in WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #1 – from critically acclaimed creators Jason Latour (Winter Soldier) and Mahmud Asrar (X-Men, Indestructible Hulk)!

Summer School is in session as world-famous mutants Wolverine, Storm, and more must educate and train the Marvel Universe’s next generation of X-Men! All-powerful inexperience mutants with the power to level cities. What could go wrong? Plus with Fantomex and Quentin Quire joining the staff – the Jean Grey School is in for a wild ride!

But with X-Men’s own lives riddled with deadly enemies and personal crises, how can they hope guide the next generation, when they can barely defend them! A new enemy lurks in the shadows, ready to strike at the heart of the Jean Grey School. And this new organization will test the faculty and students of the JGS like never before!

“Schools back for summer, and Wolverine, Storm and Quentin Quire are here to guide the next generation of mutant heroes,” says Editor Tom Brennan. “When the time came to find out who’d take the Wolverine & The X-Men story to its next chapter, Jason Latour was pretty much the only choice for someone who could continue this book’s legacy while charting new destinations. Mahmud Asrar is the perfect partner for Jason, expanding on the world of the Jean Grey school and the lives and dangers of its students with breathtaking drama and scale.”

If you thought the inaugural year of the Jean Grey School was crazy – you ain’t seen nothing yet! The X-Men of tomorrow have faced dangers unlike any other, but they’re not ready for what comes next. Get ready for the start of the bombastic new series when WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #1 hits stands this March!

MOON KNIGHT #1

Art & Cover by DECLAN SHALVEY
On-Sale 3/5/14

Press Release:

This March, illuminate the dark corners of the Marvel Universe with MOON KNIGHT #1 – from New York Times Bestselling writer Warren Ellis and red-hot artist Declan Shalvey! Moon Knight #1 will continue the exciting wave of All-New Marvel NOW! series with a fresh and sensational take on Marc Spector and his vigilante alter ego Moon Knight!

“The touchtone for this book, for me, has been ‘Weird Crime.’ Both ground-level action and high strangeness,” says Ellis in an interview with Marvel.com. “This is a take on Moon Knight that unifies all the previous takes, making the character whole and taking him forward into a new kind of crime fiction.”

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to finally have this book out in front of readers. Moon Knight is one the most fascinating characters in the Marvel library and the depths that Warren, Declan and colorist Jordie Bellaire are taking him to will guarantee this book fits perfectly alongside acclaimed books like Daredevil, Hawkeye and Black Widow,” says Editor Stephen Wacker. “This is the comic you had no idea you were waiting your entire life for.”

As a mercenary turned super hero, Marc Spector has faced down everything from werewolves, super villains to his own fractured psyche. Fearsome foes and gruesome threats permeate the darkest corners of New York City. Is Moon Knight ready for NYC? Better yet, is NYC ready for him?

Don’t miss one moment of the action when Ellis & Shalvey kick off the newest noir/horror thriller this March in the highly anticipated MOON KNIGHT #1!

MAGNETO #1

Written by CULLEN BUNN
Art by GABRIEL HERNANDEZ WALTA
Cover by PAOLO RIVERA
On-Sale 3/5/14

Press Release:

He was once the deadliest and most feared mutant on the planet…and he will be again! Starting this March, writer Cullen Bunn and artist Gabriel Hernandez Walta weave a new noir/horror thriller featuring Erik Lehnsherr – known the world over as MAGNETO!

“I think Magneto is definitely an anti-hero,” says series writer Cullen Bunn in an interview with Marvel.com. “He’s fighting for the right thing, but his methods are far too extreme. He’s not above breaking the law, stretching the limits of what is moral and putting evil to work for good.”

But Magneto is not the man he once was. And the world is a different, more dangerous place for mutants. Once a member of Cyclops’ team of renegade X-Men, it’s time for him to strike out and defend mutantkind on his own terms. It’s time to wage a new kind of war. One that will not only ensure mutant survival, but restore the Master of Magnetism to his former glory! He’s not afraid to get his hands bloody to do it…and he’ll prove once and for all why you should tremble at the sound of his name.

The one-man-war for mutantkind starts this March in MAGNETO #1!
