Welcome fellow Precurere of all things Marvel, today we take a look at This Week in Comics for March 14th, 2022
The continuation of Marvel’s fantastic Eternals run, the debut of the brand new Carnage, and the first issue of the brand new Reckoning War run; welcome to THE COLLECTORS!
Eternals: The Heretic #1
The fantastic reimagining of the Marvel team that was responsible for one of the best comic runs of 2021 has found a renewed force in the form of writer Keiron Gillen and artist Ryan Bodenheim’s Eternals: The Heretic.
With Thanos now ruling the Eternals, fans come face to face with an entity that is even more dangerous and menacing than the Mad Titan himself: Marvel fans, meet Uranos, the Undying.
There are few characters that have inspired the kind of horror and villainy that of the Symbiote known as Carnage; the character becoming the focus of writers Ram. V., David Michelinie and artists Francesco Manna and Ron Lim.
No matter how much you love the villainous Carnage, you have never seen him like this, as Ram. V. celebrates the character’s 30 years of existence following the revelations that occurred in the beloved Carnage Forever.
Reckoning War: Trial of the Watcher #1
Throughout the vastness of the multiverse, Uatu the watcher has seen them all, and he becomes the center of a story helmed by writer Dan Slott and artist Javier Rodriguez.
Continuing the idea of the constant What If…? Marvel storyline, Slott takes readers to the multiversal world that the Watcher has always avoided; with massive repercussions on the overall Marvel Universe.
Star Wars: The Halcyon Legacy #2
Journey into the galaxy far far away, as Marvel takes readers back again unto the journey of the Galactic Starcruiser, as writer Ethan Sacks and artist Will Sliney perfectly encapsulate the Star Wars universe.
Bringing fans to the casino days of Galactic Starcruiser, Sacks and Sliney explore the bounty hunter of Aurra Sing and a mysterious bounty hunting partner in the second issue of the laters Galactic Starcruiser run from Marvel.
