New Digital Comics Coming to Marvel Unlimited: Week of 12/9

Another Monday, another fresh batch of bingeable digital comics!

This week on Marvel Unlimited... Need to cool off from globe-spanning mega-event WAR OF THE REALMS?

WOTR #5
Issue #5 now in Unlimited.

Fall in love with a brand new series! BLACK CAT (2019) by Jed MacKay and Travel Foreman has arrived, and it’s a sugar rush joy ride. The debut issue has everything you need and expect from Felicia Hardy—glamour, danger, and that sexy sense of cool. 

Black Cat (2019) #1

We open with the oft-burgling crimefighter (and sometimes love of Peter Parker), sleek yet alert while on a heist at an art gala—and this time she’s brought back up. In case you’re wondering, she is planning to rob the Frick Collection in a little, black dress.

It isn’t long before our purloining protagonist gains the attention of a rival party—the New York Thieves Guild, revved up and ready to kill after finding the Black Cat’s claws on a bounty they’ve claimed first.

Black Cat_B

A folly-fueled crime spree, high speed car chase, and witty repartee makes for a dazzling opener. Plus, we get to meet these three feline felons who are probably plotting against us.

Black Cat_C
There is evil in those eyes.

Or, take a ride in an X-Wing with Luke Skywalker’s AGE OF REBELLION one-shot. Fresh off the movie bombshell in Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (“I am your father”), Luke faces his first temptation with the Dark Side when a rebel general’s mistakes thrusts him towards disaster. Emperor Palpatine lays some insidious groundwork too, showing his wrinkly visage in a super eerie cameo.

Plus, we’ve got some exciting additions to the back catalog this week! Try a major gap in oddball team book DEFENDERS (1972). Issues #138-151 are now up, and this arc is as emotionally dysfunctional as the team itself. Moondragon, (but really the whole crew), are screwed with by the wispy, wily Cloud, a former nebula now in the shape of a human always trailed by strategically placed cumuli.
