Please note: New comic book releases and all items are subject to change

Everything old, is new again. Marvel Comics has proven this little saying to be quite true in recent years with so many of their newer releases. A constant stroll down memory lane with characters (dead or alive) coming back, old comic titles coming back, relaunch titles, and rehashing old storylines. One other thing they like to do is make some of their characters “old” by simply placing the word “old” in front of the word “man” (not “woman”….YET) and just like that you have a new title. Star Lord is the latest Marvel hero to get the “old” treatment, because comic fans are very interested in seeing their beloved characters with big white beards. Old Man Quill #1, written by Ethan Sacks and drawn by Robert Gill. Although the fun sarcasm within the text here, of course we are looking forward to a great story. If you’re a regular from these here parts of Trending Pop Culture, you will know we touched on a theory regarding Marvel’s sudden love for the western (and horror) genre. They’re celebrating the companies’ 80th anniversary by bringing on some of their old titles from yesteryear, but why are they honing into the early 70’s western and horror comics? That was almost 50 years ago, not 80. Disney never does anything without a reason. We think a tester is happening to see if the comic market is ready for a resurgence of the two said genres. If these new titles hitting for 3 weeks now sell well, fans will see more of them. If not, they won’t. Equate this to film possibilities. Disney may have put out an exploratory marketing campaign to see if a resurgence is ready for the big screen too. As we are now Trending Pop Culture, InvestComics was the pioneering speculative website that everyone built upon for a reason. The first site in 2005, nothing like it. We are no longer a deep product of the speculation market. Too much of the same thing saturated the internet, everyone became a comic book speculation guru. But, every once in a while, we may drop a nugget and move along. We’ll spell things out for you. If we were still InvestComics, we’d be informing real speculators to hit those 5 for a $1 boxes and get some of those first appearances and number one books within the western and horror genre. We’ll get you started. Western comics HERE and Horror comics HERE. You really have nothing to lose by adding some first appearances or number one issues into your collection. Never know, maybe one of the speculation sites or gurus will announce a KEY comic, it’ll be overpriced before you know it. Now back to the regular scheduled post. In 1972 (47 years ago, not 80) Marvel released Gunhawks. Written by the late great Gary Friedrich. The series lasted seven issues. This Wednesday, to celebrate their 80th year, Marvel releases Gunhawks #1. Writers David Lapham and Maria Lapham. Illustrations by Luca Pizzari. Gitty-up! A relaunch occurs for Marvel this Wednesday too, so they officially have the trifecta going. A new “old man”, a new number one title from the past and a relaunch. The relaunch is Daredevil #1 with Chip Zdarsky pulling double duty as writer and penciler. Marco Checchetto also pencils.
Tony Stark: Iron Man #8 promises to be a “game changer” according to Marvel. The story is named “Digital Demon In a Bottle”. Wait, doesn’t this fall under the rehashing storylines? Well, no…? Maybe It’s just another take on the old Demon in a Bottle storyline. Maybe it’s a continuation, so wait….ah nevermind.
