Cap(s), Herc, Wolverine, and Daredevil



Four solicitations for Marvel's February.

 

First off:



CAPTAIN AMERICA #603
Written by ED BRUBAKER
Penciled by LUKE ROSS
Cover by GERALD PAREL
Special Variant by TBA
Jefferson said the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. But who is a patriot and who is a tyrant?  Is it all in the eye of the beholder? Captain America has the answer as the Cap from the 50s strikes back in TWO AMERICAS Part 2 of 4.

Weirdly they don't mention the Nomad backup stuff, even though that's a feature; clearly the solicitation department still hasn't gotten the hang of this.

Looks like Bucky will be keeping his costume, at least for now.  Makes sense; it's pretty different from Steve's, there's no danger of getting them confused, anymore than with, say, USAgent.



DAREDEVIL #505
Written by ANDY DIGGLE
Penciled by MARCO CHECCHETTO
Cover by PAOLO RIVERA
Special Variant by TBA
The Man Without Fear visits the Land of The Rising Sun!  As the new leader of The Hand, Matt Murdock seeks to unite its five continental regions behind his banner and lead the organization to a new future – but when all five “fingers” of The Hand form its mighty fist, you’ll be surprised at who gets hit first!  Series writer Andy Diggle welcomes Marco Checchetto (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN) for the Three-Part epic, THE LEFT HAND PATH!

Not familiar with the artist, but nice cover. Might do the book a bit of good to spend a bit of time away from Hell's Kitchen.



INCREDIBLE HERCULES #141
Written by GREG PAK & FRED VAN LENTE & JEFF PARKER
Penciled by RODNEY BUCHEMI & TBD
Cover by ALEX GARNER
Special Variant by TBA
"ASSAULT ON NEW OLYMPUS," Finale!
IT ALL COMES DOWN TO THIS! The past two years of storylines in Incredible Hercules have been building to one climactic moment, and here it arrives at last! The final showdown between Hercules and Typhon! Amadeus Cho becomes a true hero at last! And just why was Athena so happy at the end of "Sacred Invasion," anyway? All secrets are revealed in what is undoubtedly the most shocking ending of the year! Don't tell the Internet why we had to call this issue "EVERYBODY DIES!" PLUS! A bonus backup story featuring the AGENTS OF ATLAS!

And quite possibly my favourite cover of the month:



WOLVERINE WEAPON X #10
Written by JASON AARON
Penciled by C.P. SMITH
Cover by ADAM KUBERT
The perfect jumping on point! Wolverine has never had luck with women. They usually die or try to kill him. So what happens when a new woman enters his life? You think you know how this one goes, but this one issue will stop even Wolverine dead in his tracks! This is the place to start reading if you’re not already -- with stunning art by C.P. Smith, Jason Aaron is better than ever at what he does.


Heh.  Aaron probably gets Wolverine more than any writer currently working (though I quite like Millar's version too).
