Happy New Year, folks! Week of Marvels took a Christmas break, but now we’re back, giving you the lowdown on what’s up-and-coming for the Marvel Universe!
This week in Marvel Comics
This week was a slow one for Marvel, who wisely scheduled only one release for New Year’s Eve – the first issue of S.H.I.E.L.D., pitting S.H.I.E.L.D. against a rogue Asgardian – well, sort of. It’s actually pretty decent, and gives us an idea of the role Phil ‘fanboy’ Coulson will play in the Marvel Universe going forward.
That said, most sites have dedicated themselves to discussing the best of 2014 – and looking forward to what’s coming (*cough*Secret Wars*cough*). Here are the best:
- Comicbook.com – 2014 – when joy came back to comics
- Comicbook.com – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s New Year’s Resolutions (hilarious!)
- Comicbook.com – what 2014 taught us about comics, movies and TV
- Newsarama – what you need to know headed into 2015
- Robot6 on 2014 part 1 (part 2 has yet to be released)
In other news, merchandise related to Hawkeye has just earned over $2,000 for a domestic violence charity. I love when the comic book community shows some heart. And, one guy got an Iron Man helmet for Christmas – check out this brilliant video!
