The world is changing for Iron Man and Black Panther.
It was another big week for the comic industry. Marvel ended an era for Iron Man as writer Brian Bendis wrapped up his run, while Ta-Nehisi Coates and Daniel Acuna ushered Black Panther into Fresh Start with a bold new status quo.
Check out our new reviews and thinkpieces for the week, and let us know your favorite new comics in the comments below.
Written by Ta-Nehisi Coates | Drawn by Daniel Acuna
“Writer Ta-Nehisi Coates breathed new life into Black Panther when he took the helm of the previous solo series in 2016. Unfortunately, the momentum generated in the opening storyline, ‘A Nation Under Our Feet’ didn’t entirely carry over into subsequent stories like ‘Avengers of the New World.’ Black Panther needed a shake-up as badly as any ongoing comic, and Marvel’s Fresh Start relaunch delivers exactly that.” -Jesse
Invincible Iron Man #600
Written by Brian Michael Bendis | Drawn by Various
“Invincible Iron Man #600 is a big deal. Aside from the obvious numeric milestone, it’s also the finale to Brian Bendis’ Iron Man run and his last Marvel comic after a nearly 20-year career at the company. There’s a lot riding on this issue to cap off both this long-running Iron Man saga and a hugely influential Marvel career. In some ways it succeeds, but the biggest takeaway here is that Bendis is leaving just as things are becoming truly interesting for Tony Stark.” -Jesse
Why Marvel’s New and Classic Avengers Shouldn’t Be Mutually Exclusive
“An all-new Avengers series has kicked off over at Marvel Comics with a brand new team roster — “new” in this case being extremely relative. Avengers by writer Jason Aaron and artist Ed McGuinness has set out to return the team to their classic roots, anchored by the familiar likes of Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor for the first time since 2014. No one is particularly surprised by this turn of events given that the pattern of benching and returning major heroes in comics is so regular you could set your watch by it. The fact that they’re back isn’t what makes this time special, nor is it really the problem — it’s who they’re ousting in the process, and the way it looks from the outside.” -Megan
