Heroes Choose Sides, “Dead No More” Prequel Tales & More in Marvel’s August Releases

Check out Marvel Comics full solicitations for August 2016!

There are literally dozens of revelations in store for the Marvel Universe as the effects of “Civil War II” reverberate across the publisher’s new releases. But, as always, some developments are even bigger than others, so CBR has scoured Marvel’s solicitation text for August 2016 to shake out the biggest.

  • “Civil War II” “goes galactic” in the event’s fifth issue, as Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez’s story continues to stretch across the entire Marvel Universe. The second half of the story kicks off here, building what MArvel promises to be “the biggest battle in Marvel Universe history.”
  • As announced earlier in May, “Darth Vader” comes to a conclusion with #25. As one of Marvel’s best-selling titles, it’s not a cancellation. Rather, Writer Kieron Gillen and artist Salvador Larroca have reached the end of their story for the Sith Lord’s post-“A New Hope” adventures.
  • Power Pack returns in “Civil War II: Choosing Sides” #4. The anthology series also features J. Jonah Jameson, Colleen Wing and Nick Fury.
  • It’s Cable vs. Steve Rogers in “Uncanny Avengers” #13, as the series “Civil War II” tie-in storyline continues and “The aftermath of an explosive CIVIL WAR II event reverberates through the Avengers.”
  • Chris Sprouse joins “Black Panther” as the artist for the series’ second story arc, “A Sword for Lions.” Brian Stelfreeze will provide covers, while Ta-Nehisi Coates continues to script the series.
  • Marvel may have killed Namor, but can you truly expect something as minor as decapitation to keep the Avenging Son down? “Finding Namor” starts in “Squadron Supreme” #10, with Warrior Woman looking to resurrect the leader of Atlantis.
  • “A-Force” grows its ranks in Issue #8, when Elsa Bloodstone “unofficially” joins the team. Meanwhile, the Inhuman known as Ulysses has forseen a vision that reveals a member of the team is a murderer.
  • Phil Coulson finds himself on the outside looking in when he’s voluntarily relieved of his duties in “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” #8.
  • It’s a sibling rivalry when “Civil War II” hits “Scarlet Witch” #9, as Wanda and her brother Quicksilver find themselves on opposing sides Issue #9. Artist Joelle Jones joins writer James Robinson for the vent tie-in issue.
  • Doctor Doom’s “Civil War II” activities are revealed in “Invincible Iron Man” #12.
  • Old foes and friends clash when Spider-Man guest-stars in “Venom: Space Knight” #11.
  • Kamala Khan’s fan-fiction is revealed, as Ms. Marvel’s totally made-up tales of her fellow Avengers are revealed in All-New, All-Different Avengers Annual” #1 by G. Willow Wilson, Mark Waid, Faith Erin Hicks and more.
  • It’s synergy time when “Deadpool & The Mercs for Money” clash with Negasonic Teenage Warhead in Issue #2.
  • The creative team of Joe Kelly and Ed McGuinness re-forms for “Spider-Man/Deadpool” with #8.
  • The return of Echo is teased for “Daredevil Annual” #1.
  • All-new, all-different Hellfire Club arrives in “Uncanny X-Men” #11.
  • “Amazing Spider-Man” dials back the clock for some pre-“Dead No MOre” tales, while a hint about the Spider-Man event is teased for “Web-Warriors” #10.
