HOW TO READ COMICS THE MARVEL WAY #1 written by CHRISTOPHER HASTINGS with art by SCOTT KOBLISH and cover by DAVID NAKAYAMA

HOW TO READ COMICS THE MARVEL WAY #1

THE UNIVERSAL GATEWAY TO THE HOUSE OF IDEAS!

“I tried to read it, but I just got lost.” This HAS happened to you, True Believer! You hand your intelligent friend a comic book, eagerly anticipating future conversation, only to have it returned months later, half read. What went wrong?

Comics can be like a foreign language—if you don’t learn them young, you might need extra help and motivation to catch on. Other clever cartoonists and scribes have shared their theories of the grammar of comics, but it’s never before been done in the Mighty Marvel Manner!

Well, get ready, because Mysterio has trapped your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man in a comic book, and he’s going to help you navigate through the gutters, balloons, panels, pencils and more so you can follow along while he figures out how to escape and save the day!

From writer Christopher Hastings (UNBELIEVABLE GWENPOOL) and artist Scott Koblish (DEADPOOL), two artists who know the rules well enough to break them, comes your all-purpose guide to reading comics AND understanding how they work, hidden in an in-universe story you won’t want to miss! For the totally green, it’s a welcome mat; for the seasoned reader, a peek under the hood. Can we pull it off?! There’s only one way to find out!

GIANT-SIZE X-MEN: NIGHTCRAWLER #1 written by JONATHAN HICKMAN with art and cover by ALAN DAVIS

GIANT-SIZE X-MEN: NIGHTCRAWLER #1

HICKMAN AND DAVIS HAUNT THE XAVIER SCHOOL!

Superstar writer Jonathan Hickman teams with legendary artist Alan Davis (X–MEN, EXCALIBUR, AVENGERS) for an eerie tale of adventure! When the X–Men lose contact with the Greymalkin Habitat, it falls to Nightcrawler to lead a mission into the unknown!

BLACK WIDOW: WIDOW’S STING #1 written by RALPH MACCHIO with art by SIMONE BUONFANTINO and cover by EMA LUPPACHINO

BLACK WIDOW: WIDOW’S STING #1

Something’s stirring in the criminal underworld. Maggia boss SILVERMANE is making his move. S.H.I.E.L.D. has sent an agent in to investigate, but they’ve disappeared. It’s time to call in the heavy hitters. It’s time to call in the BLACK WIDOW. And the plan NATASHA ROMANOFF will uncover is far deadlier than any of them realized.

Don’t miss this all–new tale from the dangerous, deep–cover days of the Black Widow!

TASKMASTER #1 written by JED MACKAY with art by ALESSANDRO VITTI and cover by VALERIO GIANGIORDANO

TASKMASTER #1

TASKMASTER HAS MURDERED MARIA HILL!

Or at least that’s what the whole world thinks. Now the greatest spies in the business are hunting him down and won’t stop until Taskmaster is dead or clears his own name! Follow JED MACKAY (BLACK CAT) and ALESSANDRO VITTI (SECRET WARRIORS) on a globe–spanning adventure that will send ripples through every corner of the Marvel Universe’s espionage community!

WIDOWMAKERS: RED GUARDIAN AND YELENA BELOVA #1 written by DEVIN GRAYSON with art by Michele Bandini and cover by MIKE MCKONE

WIDOWMAKERS: RED GUARDIAN AND YELENA BELOVA #1

Devin Grayson, one of the creators of Yelena Belova — the Red Room recruit who once nearly killed Natasha Romanoff — returns with a brand–new story drawn by rising star Michele Bandini!

Yelena has spent years trying to figure out who she is. Once she thought the Black Widow mantle was her destiny, but fate had other plans. Now the past is catching up with her — and with Alexi Shostakov, a.k.a. the Red Guardian! Alexi has worn many titles, including husband to Natasha, but while the Widow played her avenging games, the Red Guardian waited in the shadows. Now a new day is dawning — and this time, no one will stand in his way.

DEADPOOL #6 written by KELLY THOMPSON with art by KEVIN LIBRANDA and cover by GREG LAND

DEADPOOL #6

DEADPOOL INVADES THE X-MEN!

When the X-Men won’t return Deadpool’s calls for a Krakoa portal on Monster Island, Wade decides to drop by for a visit. Apparently, the new X-Men home isn’t taking visitors. RUDE.

It’s an entire nation of biological weapons and mutant warriors versus a merc with a mouth. GAME ON!

RUNAWAYS #32 written by RAINBOW ROWELL with art by NATACHA BUSTOS and cover by KRIS ANKA

RUNAWAYS #32

New Arc! Great jumping on point! After the events of last issue, the Runaways are in a dark and scary place. There are so many pieces to pick up and choices to be made and if the Runaways are good at anything it’s making bad choices.

Stay tuned to Marvel.com throughout the week for more first-looks at what's coming from the hallowed halls of the House of Ideas to your local comic shop in April!
