Well we have been using The Avengers thread for some of this talk but there are a whole bunch of fantastic Street-Level Marvel books that either just started or launch in the coming months. Talk about em here!
BENDIS AND MALEEV - MAY 4TH
Promised to be in the tradition of Bendis' landmark Daredevil run, the new Moon Knight book is a completely new direction for Marc Spector. Relocating to LA, he uses his history as Moon Knight to launch a hit TV Show 'Legends of the Khonshu' to fund his crimefighting crusade. Finally at peace with his mental illness, Spector has embraced the three newest personalities in his head: namely ones that mimic Spider-Man, Wolverine and Captain America. While he is unable to control when a personality asserts itself, Marc will attempt to use the multiple heroes inside his head to be a better superhero than he has ever before.
RUCKA AND CHECETTO - AUGUST
Greg Rucka returns Frank Castle to his grim vigilante roots, with a clear mission statement. Rucka's Punisher will be completely sane, he is simply a soldier on a mission and will do anything within his power to complete it. This Punisher will be firmly entrenched within the Marvel Universe, forcing Frank to find a middle ground between high and low profile killings to avoid drawing the attention of superheroes.
WAID, RIVERA AND MARTIN - JULY
Daredevil has been at rock bottom for about 25 years now, Mark Waid hopes to change that. In the wake of Matt Murdock's betrayal of pretty much everyone he knows in Shadowland, Waid will bring him back to his Swashbuckling roots. Matt Murdock will be happier and funnier than he has been in decades which of course freaks out everyone else.
While still mature and dark, the stories will be more in the vein of a superhero book over depressing crime drama.
PAK, VAN LENTE AND EDWARDS
Hercules is mortal, for the first time in thousands of years. Taking it in stride, he has moved into Brooklyn after answering mysterious prayers to fight a gang of Ares' worshiping nutbags named the Warhawks. He is armed with Ares' abandoned armory, with each unique piece of equipment tying directly into mythology.
HEROES FOR HIRE
ABNETT, LANNING AND ATKINS
Misty Knight's new Heroes for Hire follows a massive rotating ensemble cast (everyone from Gargoyle to Spider-Man), with Misty and Paladin forming the core of the operation. After recovering from Puppet Master's control, Misty continues H4H, acting as a mission control for various heroes to team-up and take down crime, offering intel and cash as payment.
LISS AND FRANCAVILLA
In all honesty, this is a poor version of Christopher Priest's run, with very pretty art. American Panther looks mildly racist but hey follow it if you want.
WILLIAMS AND CLARK - JUNE
Dovetailing out of Aaron's landmark run, Rob Williams' Ghost Rider follows Johnny Blaze in a quest to rid himself of the Spirit of Vengeance once and for all. However, if he finally can cleanse himself of the angelic spirit where will it go? Is Blaze ready to handle placing the curse of the Ghost Rider on some random innocent?
This is probably my last thread for a bit. Been making a ton lately.
