THE COLLECTORS: This Week in Comics [March 21st, 2022]
Welcome fellow accumulator of all things Marvel, today we take a look at this week in comics, for March 21st, 2022
The first installment of Larry Hanna’s new Wolverine series, the return of the Lethal Protector, and the continuation of the iconic Devil’s Reign arc; Welcome to THE COLLECTORS!
Venom: Lethal Protector #1
The iconic returns as one of Marvel’s most beloved anti-heroes are back with a brand new take on the classic Lethal Protector series from the fantastic team of writer David Michelinie and artist Ivon Fiorelli and Ken Lashley.
Long before Venom was the well-known symbiotic hero that we know him as now, he was a reporter who couldn’t catch a break, as Michelinie takes readers back to the early days of Eddie Brock as the host of the symbiote.
Demon Days: Blood Feud #1
One of the most original titles to come from the massive published continues, as this week marks the debut of Demon Days: Blood Feud, carrying over from 2021’s beloved PEACH MOMOKI series Demon Days.
The last entry into the Demon Days Saga sees the series title character, Mariko Yashida, come face to face with the hunter that’s been chasing her down, Ogin, in an epic and original story by the brilliant writer.
Wolverine: Patch #1
Perhaps the most anticipated of this week in comics, veteran Wolverine writer Larry Hama makes his long-awaited return to the iconic character as Wolverine: Patch takes on the character in a brand new way with artist Andrea Di Vitto.
Patch is back, and he is returning to Madripoor, as Hama takes the character back to before his initial run on the character began, in a story that will include not one, but two, eye patches.
Devil’s Reign: Villains for Hire #3
Marvel’s biggest event of the past two years continues with the latest inclusion in the Devil’s Reign arc, Villians for Hire, by writer Clay Chapman and artist Manuel Garcia.
Wilson Fisk’s firm grasp on New York has led to the city’s continued plunging into all-out mayhem, with The THunderbolts standing as the only law left; but some of these ‘Bolts see this lawlessness as an opportunity to cash in.

Variant of the Week
Wolverine: Patch #1
Despite a breathtaking variant of Iron Man #18, and a fantastic reimaging of the Venom: Lethal Protector title, we have to give the Variant of the Week title to this variant of Hama’s Wolverine return.
Not only is the series highly anticipated for Hama and the return of the iconic Wolverine, but the cover is a fantastic depiction of Patch, with a nod to the history of the character.
What to Read on Marvel Unlimited
The Thing #2
Marvel Unlimited has seen some incredible additions this week, including the first Demon Days issue and Wastelanders: Wolverine, but our choice for what you should read has to go one of our favorite series of the past year.
Tom Reilly is a rising star in the comic art world and his work on The Thing has been a perfect marriage, with his style fitting perfectly with the vibe the series takes the character.
Trade Paperback of the Week

With the highly anticipated Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness just on the horizon, This Week in Comics trade paperback of this week has to be serious that delves deeper into one of its most important characters: America Chavez.
