Hot Comic Book Releases: 7/1/2015

The first of the month means rent is due, but Wednesday means new comic books! Today some BIG news has come down about the future of Marvel Comics from the All-New, All-Different Marvel line set to launch after the conclusion of Secret Wars, and we’ve got the skinny in this week’s Hot comic Book Releases!

The All-New, All-Different Marvel Universe: The New 45?

Today, Marvel put out a preview magazine, showing off 45 new stories with some familiar faces, some surprises, and some room for more exciting announcements depending on the yet-untold events of Secret Wars. Here’s a list of what we have so far and some cover images while I literally attempt to judge a book by its cover.
Invincible Iron Man #1
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis

Hopefully ace writer, Bendis, can make Tony Stark as likable in the books as he is on the big screen.
A-Force #1
Writer: G. Willow Wilson
Cover Artist: Victor Ibanez
“A-Force to be reckoned with…”
The all-female super team is here to stay and hopefully that means what I think it means… More Dazzler!

“Keeps your friends close and your enemies closer.”
Apparently Agent Coulson is making out with Hydra snakes?

“Earth’s mightiest most dedicated heroes.”
Lady Thor, Vision, Captain Falcon Murrica, Iron Man, Nova, Ms. Marvel, and Miles Morales Spider-Man looks to be a rad team in the making.
