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
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!

What terrible secrets does it house?
