Comic-Con 2015:
The Future Is Here... According To Marvel

If you get to your comics shop this week -- and of course you will -- you may be handed an issue of All-New, All-Different Previews of what Marvel has in store for us in October. Some of the titles featured have already been announced -- some you can find right here on Fanboy Planet!

And it's all part of Marvel's grand plan for Comic-Con. You can bet that next week people will be buzzing about these books... and more. Marvel Studios might not be bringing Captain America, but it's good to see a company remember that at its heart, Comic-Con is still about comics.

“Dropping the mic right before San Diego Comic-Con has become a Marvel tradition,” said Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso in Marvel's press release this morning. “The ALL-NEW, ALL-DIFFERENT MARVEL PREVIEWS magazine provides a large snapshot of what’s to expect in the fall: new characters, new teams, new wrinkles for our heroes, and most importantly, fresh creative directions.  And we’re just getting started.  We have a few more aces up our sleeves.”

That may be. So why don't we take a look at the aces they've dropped on the table?

Marvel announced the return of A-Force earlier, and it's a book that garnered a lot of attention when it was first announced before Secret Wars.

G. Willow Wilson, co-creator of the new Ms. Marvel, has the chops to not only make this a compelling ongoing, but I have it on good authority that her take on Dazzler -- yes, Dazzler -- is amazing.

Agent Coulson kissing up to Hydra?

Though some have groused about the changes made to Coulson so that he could more closely resemble actor Clark Gregg, it's welcome. Not just so that fans of the show can walk into a comics shop and recognize something they like, but also because the movie and TV version of Phil Coulson is kind, gentle, and decent -- and still kicks ass as a (relatively) normal human among superbeings.

This book, too, was leaked earlier, and like A-Force, shows that Marvel really has a commitment to diversity and inclusion. But it's not pandering -- these characters have become popular because they're well-written, interesting, and fun to watch interact.

It looks like they've aged Clint Barton, a bold move considering how Jeremy Renner has made the character much more well-known. Pitting him against a younger woman for the right to be Hawkeye -- it could be an interesting story.

And Jeff Lemire did pretty well making people interested in a certain other more emerald archer over at the distinguished competition...
