Marvel Previews for August 2008

Secret Invasion leads the charge in the dog days of summer

What's hotter than the late summer, August heat? Marvel's monthly offerings, of course! Get a taste of what's to come below, and head over to the August catalog for the full list!


What's bigger than "Secret Invasion" in August? Nothin'! Embrace change in SECRET INVASION #5, the spotlight shines on both Captain Marvel and Marvel Boy in MIGHTY AVENGERS #17 and the Illuminati's darkest secret gets revealed in NEW AVENGERS #44! Other series with August-shipping "Secret Invasion" tie-in issues include X-FACTOR, THUNDERBOLTS, SHE-HULK, INCREDIBLE HERCULES, NOVA, NEW WARRIORS, CAPTAIN BRITAIN AND MI:13, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, BLACK PANTHER, MS. MARVEL AND AVENGERS: THE INITIATIVE!


But the Skrulltastic fun doesn't stop there! Sink your teeth into four fresh "Secret Invasion" mini-series! SECRET INVASION: THOR, SECRET INVASION: X-MEN, SECRET INVASION: SPIDER-MAN: BRAND NEW DAY and SECRET INVASION: INHUMANS all kick off in August! How about continuing "Secret Invasion" mini-series? There's SECRET INVASION: RUNAWAYS/YOUNG AVENGERS #3, the final chapter of that action-packed series and SECRET INVASION: FRONT LINE #2, a view of the Skrull saga from the man on the street.


There's action aplenty in mutant-town this August, particularly with three new one-shots. You can have X-MEN ORIGINS: JEAN GREY by Sean McKeever and Mike Mayhew, WOLVERINE: KILLING MADE SIMPLE ONE-SHOT by Christopher Yost & Todd DeZago and Koi Turnball & Steve Kurth or X-FACTOR SPECIAL: LAYLA MILLER by Peter David and Valentine de Landro. Heck, get 'em all! While you're getting your mutant one-shots and other X-Men titles, be sure to snag the first issue of NYX: NO WAY HOME by Marjorie Liu and Kalman Andrasofszky.


August also sees the start of a new chapter in the lives of the Runaways when comics legend Terry Moore joins up with artist extraordinaire Humberto Ramos for an all-new RUNAWAYS #1! Need more Terry Moore-penned goodness? Check out SPIDER-MAN LOVES MARY JANE #1! And elsewhere in Spidey-land, Venom, Green Goblin, Daredevil and a slew of other characters get caught up in Peter Parker's crazy life! For the full list, head over to the August catalog!
