Marvel’s True Believer Alert – “Runaways,” “Spider-Man: Breakout,” “Black Widow” and “Captain Britain”

Official Press Release

Fans racing to stores for RUNAWAYS…

Furthering its reputation as both a critical and commercial favorite, Brian K. Vaughan’s RUNAWAYS kicks into high gear with issue #3. “I think Runaways #3 is our very best issue yet, and it’s got a cover that readers have been talking about for MONTHS,” says Vaughan. “Fans are crazy about these classic characters from New Warriors, Generation X, and Power Pack, and those heroes finally get a chance to suit up and throw down with our Runaways in this action-packed issue.”

Part 3 of the RUNAWAYS arc “TRUE BELIEVERS” features the first public appearance of EXCELSIOR — a team of six fan-favorite characters that once again don their classic costumes…but do these young heroes intend to help the Runaways, or destroy them? Also, more clues will be offered to which major Marvel Universe villain is the father of an all-new teenage runaway! Scheduled to go on sale 4/20, the issue is beautifully illustrated by Adrian Alphona, with a stunning cover by Jo Chen.

Fans who might have missed the original RUNAWAYS series can catch up with the multiple RUNAWAYS digest volumes. Since the new series relaunch, there has been phenomenal demand for all three of the digests printed thus far, with the first two volumes currently sold out at Diamond…

…Marvel thanks both fans and retailers for making the RUNAWAYS digests such successes, and reminds them that the first two will be returning to store shelves in late April!

Spidey has a “riot” in SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT!

Yes, Spider-Man is having a riot…the BAD kind.

The New Avengers riot hits in SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT! #1 — the jailbreak of the century causes havoc in the Marvel U, as a flood of the most dangerous villains on the planet pour into the streets of New York City…and our favorite web-slinger finds himself caught between two warring cliques of escaped convicts!

Writer Tony Bedard says of the SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT! chaos, “It’s the best of both worlds, in that I get to play with some of the greatest icons in comics, like Spidey and Captain America, while at the same time getting my ‘geek on’ with some of my favorite lesser-known villains, like the U-Foes and Crossfire. BREAKOUT delivers all-out action, no less than ten villains, a complex mystery, and some truly outstanding art by Marvel’s Next Big Thing, Manuel Garcia.”

SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT! goes on sale 4/20, is written by Tony Bedard, pencilled by Manual Garcia, and sports a cover by fan-favorite Mike Deodato.

BLACK WIDOW takes aim at the Mainstream in Entertainment Weekly

Acclaimed science-fiction novelist Richard K. Morgan’s take on BLACK WIDOW has grabbed the attention of countless new fans, including pop-culture mega-magazine Entertainment Weekly. “Smarter, funnier, and sexier than it has any right to be…” are among the accolades of EW reviewer Marc Bernardin.

Writer Richard K. Morgan (Altered Carbon and Broken Angels) and comics legend Bill Sienkiewicz (ELEKTRA: ASSASSIN) bring to readers old ghosts and new revelations about the original Black Widow – Natasha Romanova – in this hardboiled noir tale. The deadliest agent in the Marvel Universe has finally gotten out of the spy game, and she’s not asking for much, just a life of her own. When a sudden assassination attempt provides a harsh reality check, the former Soviet agent tracks a string of international killings that will lead her back to a Russia she can barely recognize.

Morgan’s BLACK WIDOW series has been SO well received, that a sequel is set for Early Fall, 2005.

New Printing of CAPTAIN BRITAIN TPB!

For fans of Alan Moore and Alan Davis — two of graphic storytelling’s greatest innovators — the wait is almost over for the NEW printing of the masterpiece CAPTAIN BRITAIN TPB.

“When these stories were first reprinted in the U.S. in issues of X-Men Archives, a page was left out. When the trade was originally put together, the film was pulled from the X-Men Archives reprints — and as a result, the page was left out of the collection, as well,” explains Special Project Senior Editor Jeff Youngquist, “After the omission was discovered, we obtained the original art for the missing page from Alan Davis, and had it relettered and recolored. Now it’s back where it belongs!”

Reprinting Moore and Davis’ first collaboration, the CAPTAIN BRITAIN TPB reprints a story that would influence the heart and soul of comic books for generations. For Brian Braddock, a.k.a. Captain Britain, it began when the Merlin of Arthurian myth transported him to a world sideways to his own, an alternate reality on the brink of annihilation. A world Braddock would fail to save…and when the events that destroyed that world begin to repeat themselves on his own, Captain Britain faces a destiny that he cannot avert.

The CAPTAIN BRITAIN TPB collects Alan Moore and Alan Davis’ work originally published exclusively in Marvel’s United Kingdom line.
