Cosmo’s Recommendations …
AngelaQueenOfHel

Angela, Queen of Hel #5
“When Angela’s first ongoing was announced there was a fair amount of eye-rolling (myself included). With the current All-New All-Different second series, Marguerite Bennett has proved wrong all those naysayers (myself included). The book is a great mix of action and character; indeed, its heart is the endearing romance between Angela and Sera. This is a delightful series, well worth checking out. Oh, plus you get a few pages of painted art from the extraordinarily talented Stephanie Hans. Really, how could you lose here ..?”

The Rough Guide To All New, All Different Marvel

Fall is upon us but while Secret Wars and it’s many tie in’s sit in delay purgatory for the time being, Marvel is once again relaunching it’s superhero line with a whole bunch of #1 issues for their comics. With that said, the publisher is moving from a different position than they were in with Marvel Now & All New Marvel Now. With the former, Marvel had a lot of young creative talent that they were able to re-position during the relaunch to give their line a fresh make over and give creators they had brought up on  their lower tier titles a higher profile like Jonathan Hickman, Jerome  Opena, Esad Ribic, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Jason Aaron or Rick Remender. After Marvel Now was a success, they added several new talents into their fold by building off the success of the original relaunch, giving creators like Ales Kot, Tradd Moore, Michael Walsh, Felipe Smith or Michel Fiffe their first shot at a major comics launch with the publisher. Now, much of the talent from both those initiatives has moved on from the publisher. In their place, Marvel has new creators coming on from all sorts of different mediums in addition to some of their old standby’s like Brian Michael Bendis, Mark Waid or Greg Land, and they are publishing a lot of comics. Probably too many. Below is a list of all the announced new series categorized into grouping of Yay, Mayhaps or Nah like we did with Secret Wars. Keep in mind that I won’t be including series that are basically the same creative talent and that Marvel will surely have more books to announce in the months ahead.

Heterocles

Hercules1

Protect the innocent, defend the world, save the day. Olympus’s favorite son is back like you’ve never seen him before! An ancient warrior in the modern day, Hercules battles everything from street-level crime to cosmic scale threats. Whether it’s protecting his block, his city or the entire world – no labor is too big or too small for the mighty Hercules! But a new evil has awoken – one that will push the demi-god to the limit and test his mighty resolve. The world’s first super hero is back in the fight, but will his new lease on life be short lived?” (Via Marvel.com)

In the Post-Secret Wars All-New Marvel NOW!, we’re getting a new Hercules series that is 100% he-man-women-lover. Not everyone loves that concept though. Is this yet another setback by the publisher vis-a-vis the Hip-Hop variants and forgetting about Blade?
