Marvel True Believer Alert – Spellbinders, Human Torch and Avengers Disassembled TPB

Marvel True Believer Alert –  Spellbinders, Human Torch and Avengers Disassembled TPB

Official Press Release

SPELLBINDERS work their magic…

In a school where witches are a dime a dozen, you’d better find out exactly who your friends are…fast!

“Spellbinders is a story about growing up and finding out who you really are – with a lot of magic thrown into the mix. The heroine, Kim Vesco, finds that different people see her in different ways, as a witch or non-witch, friend, ally or enemy, and she has to make an identity for herself out of all this — like every teen does,” says series writer Mike Carey, “…but most teens don’t have a magical assassin on their tails while they’re doing it!”

With SPELLBINDERS #2, Kim begins to discover the true nature of her witch-powers, and runs into a crowd of Salem ghosts! She’s in for the fight of her life…guess it’s just another day in high school.

“For me, Spellbinders is one of those great projects where everything falls into place – just the way it should be,” adds artist Mike Perkins, “It’s not just that the characters, settings, and supernatural powerplays are creatively and entertainingly written, it’s also the energy and excitement of the entire team working on the project. Wrier Mike Carey, inker Drew Hennessy, and Guru eFX are all doing outstanding work above and beyond the call of duty. Then we have the captain of our ship — MacKenzie Cadenhead — it’s just one of those teams that sparks.”

HUMAN TORCH Digest set to BURN up shelves…

In anticipation of this summer’s long-awaited Fantastic Four feature film, fans and retailers are clamoring for compilations of FF material…both team AND solo adventures.

Karl Kesel and Skottie Young’s 2003 Human Torch series lends itself perfectly to Marvel’s wildly popular digest format.

Collecting Human Torch #1-6, the HUMAN TORCH VOL. 1: BURN Digest features the FF’s youngest member during his high-school years, soon after gaining his powers — and becoming the most popular student on campus! The Big Man on Campus until the Torch came along was Olympic-bound wrestler Mike Snow. Snow never wanted to see Johnny again…until now, years later, when a fellow firefighter dies before his eyes, inexplicably bursting into flames…like a Human Torch!

AVENGERS DISASSEMBLED TPB still flying out of stores…

With the massive popularity of New Avengers, fans continue to aggressively seek out the story which shook the old team apart.

Says Marvel’s Director of Sales, David Gabriel, “We keep a close eye on Graphic Novel sales velocities, and forecast when any given book will be sold out at Diamond. With New Avengers being such an incredible success, we recognized early on that the AVENGERS DISASSEMBLED TPB will be selling huge for a very long time. It’s our pleasure to keep this book continuously in print.”

Adds series scribe Brian Michael Bendis, “Wow. Thanks to everyone for making this book such a notorious success…we still get so much mail on this story. Every day the great debate continues, I guess!”

The AVENGERS DISASSEMBLED TPB begins with the return of a team member thought dead – and by the time it’s over, everything known about the Avengers will have changed! It’s the worst day in team history, as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes try to deal with the shocking tragedy around them. Who is behind this, and why? Will it tear the team apart? Who will fall at the hands of the Avengers’ greatest enemy? Guest-starring every Avenger…ever! Collects AVENGERS #500-503 and the AVENGERS FINALE.
