Continuing the article from looking at Image and DC’s Solicitations, I turn my attention to Marvel’s projected releases for May, with them being revealed in full on CBR. Here are five, mostly newcomer friendly series that are must reads in May 2014.
Story: Greg Rucka | Art: Russell Dauterman | Price: $3.99
Cyclops just discovered that he thought died long ago is alive and well and A SPACE PIRATE. Spinning directly out of ALL NEW X-MEN comes the first ongoing series for one of the time-travelling Original X-Men. After the events of “Trial of Jean Grey”, Cyclops stays in space to learn some valuable lessons from his dad: 1) How to shave. 2) How to talk to girls. 3) How to steal a Badoon spaceship.
WHY SHOULD YOU BUY THIS? It’s the biggest surprise release to come out of All New Marvel Now. (Don’t kid yourself, Parker fans – you all knew that he’d be back in time for Amazing Spider-Man 2) and with Greg Rucka, the writer of Lazarus, on board for a road trip through space with young Cyclops things should be very fun indeed – and if anyone has the potential to make Cyclops a likable character then it can be Rucka. It should be interesting to see how this turns out for sure, and it could rock.
