Marvel Gives ‘Fresh Starts’ to CAPTAIN MARVEL, DOCTOR STRANGE, SPIDER-MAN and More

After constant relaunches for the past few years, Marvel is looking to make a “Fresh Start” with comic readers…by running another relaunch. Marvel has already revealed that Ta-Nehisi Coates is writing both Black Panther and Captain America, with artists Daniel Acuña and Leinil Yu, respectively. Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness are taking on The Avengers, with a new series that may actually be the only Avengers book for a while. Now we know what’s coming up for a few of Marvel’s other headliners.

Mark Waid and artist Jesus Saiz taking Doctor Strange to outer space in his new series. Maybe he’ll run into T’Challa out there! The premise for this book is that Strange’s magic has been depleted (again), and he’s heading to the stars to find a way to recharge his battery, so to speak. The first issue will be released on Wednesday, June 6.

Waid is also writing the Ant-Man and the Wasp six-issue miniseries, which will be drawn by Javier Garron. It’s probably meant to ride the wave of attention from the new movie of the same name by teaming up Scott Lang with Hank Pym’s daughter for the first time in the Marvel Universe. But this Wasp isn’t Hope van Dyne, she’s Nadia Pym, the daughter of Hank’s first wife. In this story, Nadia enters the Microverse to find Scott, who has somehow managed to get himself hopelessly lost. Ant-Man and the Wasp #1 will hit on Wednesday, June 6.


On July 4th, Margaret Stohl and artist Carlos Pacheco are giving Carl Danvers an updated origin story in the five-issue miniseries, The Life of Captain Marvel. Apparently, this tale will dive into Carol’s previously unexplored past, including her childhood, while digging up a few family skeletons that may come back to haunt her in the present.

Also in July, Amazing Spider-Man is getting a new volume from former Captain America writer Nick Spencer, and artist Ryan Ottley, who is coming off of his long stint on Invincible. Story details for this one are sketchy, but Spencer’s interview with ComicBook.com seemed to indicate a back-to-basics approach while promising a new roommate and a new love interest for Peter Parker.
