6-Issue Subs: Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D., Ant-Man and Uncanny Avengers

Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Marvel‘s huge success expanding into the world of TV and movies has had a positive effect on some of their franchises’ comic book counter-parts (see the recent Guardians Of The Galaxy series and the spin-offs for example). This trend continues in December when the popular Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV prompts the arrival of S.H.I.E.L.D., a new comic book series based on the TV show based on the comic book! Issue #1 is out on December 31st.

Ant-Man is next up. Released prior to the tiny hero’s big screen debut next year, and like the aforementioned movie, Ant-Man features Scott Lang and not Hank Pym, as our protagonist. The series begins on 14th January 2015!

Finally, following the events of AXIS, Uncanny Avengers begins again with a brand new team of assembled heroes on 7th January 2015, with the new Avengers: Age Of Ultron movie looking set to break records on it’s release next summer.

6-Issue Subscription: Ant-Man
Marvel Comics

Scott Lang has never exactly been the world’s best super hero. Heck, most people don’t even think he’s been the best Ant-Man — and the last guy invented Ultron and joined the Masters of Evil, so that’s saying something. But when the Superior Iron Man calls with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Scott’s going to get a chance to turn it all around and be the hero he’s always dreamed of being. Sure he’s been to prison! Sure he’s been through a messy divorce! Sure he’s been, um… dead. But this time is different! This time nothing is gonna stop the astonishing Ant-Man!

6-Issue Subscription: Uncanny Avengers
Marvel Comics

From the ashes of AXIS an all-new, all different Avengers assemble!

The tragedy at the end of AXIS has left the Uncanny Avengers vulnerable, and someone is taking advantage of it. One of the Avengers oldest foes returns with a terrible secret that will, all hyperbole aside, shatter the lives of two members of the squad. What is Counter-Earth? What terrible secrets does it house?
