AvengersUltronMoviePosterYup!  It’s that time of year again!  Marvel has released their book catalog for May-August 2015, and it’s chock full of reprints, collections, slipcases, and omnibi!  (You can read it here!)  Lots of stuff marketed towards Ant-Man and Avengers, of course, as well as some TV tomes, and paving the way for future films.  (Hmmm… why all the Human Torch and Vision collections?  winkwinknudgenudge)  And, of course, Star Wars!  (Gotta have Star Wars…)  You know what would be cool?  If Marvel reprinted “The Chaykin” Star Wars poster from 1976!  Oooh…  a poster “variant!  If stores order 25 copies of the “New Hope” trade, they get a copy of the poster!

I present the catalog text without comment.  Titles of which I’m particularly intrigued have cover images displayed.  (Hmm… a Damage Control compendium!  Might Marvel have a television series in development?)

What catches your imagination?  Your wallet?

But Dazzler lies incapacitated in Mystique’s headquarters -and Mystique makes a convincing imitation! And where is Magneto, the former head of the mutant movement? Then, it’s an Original Sin tie-in as Charles Xavier’s last will and testament is discovered, but what’ concealed within its pages might be the X-Men’s ultimate undoing! Could a previously unknown power now be their greatest threat? How will the Uncanny X-Men cope with the shadows of Xavier’s past?

  1. Someone should take that Avengers mega-poster, and have them battling all of the other cinematic superheroes, as well as other 2015 franchises.

  2. The Chaykin Star Wars poster? Sure, make it available, but that idea to make it a chase item “If stores order 25 copies of the “New Hope” trade, they get a copy of the poster!”

    No. Just “NO!”

  3. Whoa. a complete Damage Control collection and a new Howard the Duck collection. Gotta hand it to marvel, keep printing you back catalog.

  4. Damage Control book looks pretty good, especially since they remembered both the MCP story and the Marvel Age story.

    The Howard The Duck book should be good, my only problem being that with this page count in Volume 1 I’m guessing that a hypothetical Volume 2 will end up including the post-Gerber material. Though maybe they can skip the non-Gerber stuff and print his later returns to the character (and maybe the comic strip) in Volume 2.

    What’s with the weird price point on the Ms. Marvel book, “$34.88 USD, $38.88 CAD”. Everything else is “$??.99” until you get to $75 and even dollars after that.

  5. why a “Civil War : Ms. Marvel” reprint just one month after they new avengers movie?…..
    coincidence?, or is it possible ms marvel will play a role in the avengers movie (or the Post-credits scene) and maybe her part leads into the the captain america : civil war movie?

  6. 34.88 for Ms Marvel Vol 1 HC…what a random price! Count me in, though.

    Lots of good stuff. Black Panther, Damage Control, Brand Echh, all stuff I didnt want to find in back issues.

  7. Sadly, I expect that the Canadian cover price for comics will skyrocket, as the foreign exchange rate has increased recently. Even though the price of fuel has plummeted by about 40% at the same time.

  8. I noticed the Spider-Verse Omnibus wasn’t part of the listings. My guess is they’re waiting till it all comes out in trade before releasing the Omnibus version . Though I hope its still planned to come out, that was the best option to get the whole thing thanks to Amazon’s early pricing “glitch”.
