NYCC | Marvel expands Season One with Thor, Iron Man, Wolverine

Today at New York Comic Con,  Marvel announced it’s expanding its Season One line with three graphic novels recounting the early days Iron Man, Thor and Wolverine. They join a lineup that already includes volumes devoted to the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, the Avengers, the X-Men, Daredevil, the Hulk, Ant-Man and Doctor Strange.

Launched in February, Season One features current creators retelling classic superhero tales. For instance, with Wolverine: Season One writers Ben Blacker and Ben Acker (Supernatural, The Thrilling Adventure Hour) and artist Salva Espin take Logan back to key moments in the hirsute mutant’s storied history.

“We get to tell the most iconic ‘early days’ story Wolverine has: his encounter with Wendigo and The Hulk,” Acker told “This story is about the first time Logan put on his classic yellow and black suit and got the code name Wolverine.”

Thor: Season One is written by Matthew Sturges and illustrated by Pepe Larraz, while Iron Man: Season One pairs Howard Chaykin with artist Gerard Parel.

Check out previews from the three books, and keep following Robot 6 and Comic Book Resources for more New York Comic Con news.



Will Iron Man take: Season One place in Vietnam like the original comics or Afghanistan like the movie?

Looks good, maybe a little ‘done before’ but good.

I am honestly very excited about Wolverine. Acker & Blacker are great, Thrilling Adventure Hour is one of my favorite things in existence.

Are these books all considered in-continuity?

to sandwich eater: Well, 616 origin has been set in Afghanistan even before the movie (Ellis updated it), it would be weird if they retconned it back to Vietnam.

Hmm… The arts are very, very good. I hope to see the Wolvie pages in colours.

One question is still into my head with this collection: do these books are well worth the price???

I mean, from DC Comics, we have the Earth One collection (OK, it’s only a 2 books collection, the third is coming soon – and unfortunately, the price between the first book and the second has risen…), and I was/am really pleased to read the new Earth One Superman “origins”.

So, what about the Marvel’ Season One books?

How many time are they going to try this concept? It completely lacks drama because we know how the story ends. I mean wasn’t that the worst thing about Star Wars 1-3?

Except this is nothing similar to Sw 1-3 . It’s just some kind of recap /origins for potential newcomers , and well yeah you kinda need to do those every once in a while … event more so when ready to roll out a revamped line , or a bunch of movies .

You dont have to roll your eyes at them , these are not for you and I , unless you wanna stockpile and collect everything … or just wanna enjoy some potentially good art and writing

Wolvie looks like Brock Sampson when he goes into his blood rage.

Looking forward to reading these, particularly the Thor graphic novel.

Hoping he ha a good showing. Lately he seems to have been written down a lot in the comics – and even in the Avengers movie

As an Aussie sci-fi writer: I’ve written a solid collection of Marvel (espec Thor) fan fiction, why not check it out?
