The full Marvel August 2016 solicitations have been released, and in the gallery viewer below, you can now check out all the artwork, synopses and product images for more than 150 different upcoming Marvel releases!
The Marvel August 2016 solicitations see things getting pretty serious in the all-new Marvel Universe as Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez’s Civil War II continues.
“‘Civil War’ was a seismic event that demanded the attention of existing fans and created new ones because it tapped into the most pressing question of its day,” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “‘Civil War II’ will do the same.”
“The original ‘Civil War’ is one of the most important Marvel comics ever,” adds Bendis, “and we are all very excited to have come up with what we hope is a story worthy of the title. If you are scared of earth shattering Marvel events where no one is safe… be afraid, be very afraid.”
While the big screen Civil War features a conflict between Captain America and Iron Man, the comics’ Civil War II is based out of a disagreement between Iron Man and Captain Marvel.
“For Carol, it would be a dereliction of duty to have this incredible resource [the Inhuman Ulysses] and not use it to save lives,” Captain Marvel writer Ruth Fletcher Gage explains. “How could you avoid the chance to prevent a bombing, or to save hundreds from an earthquake?”
“She can’t,” adds cowriter (and husband) Christos Gage. “It’s her job as a soldier and an Avenger to intervene in these things. And anyone trying to stop her is threatening the very lives she’s trying to save.”
The Marvel August 2016 solicitations also include a series of Marvel Tsum Tsum cover variants, all tied to the debut of a four-issue miniseries that attempts to reconcile the popular collectibles with Marvel Comics continuity.
