Marvel Collected Editions February 2013 Solicitations

Marvel has released their February 2013 solicitations. You’re probably asking yourself, “Why would Marvel publish a New Warriors Omnibus”? The simple answer is because this team features Nova and he is getting is own new ongoing series as part of the Marvel NOW initiative.  Granted the new Nova is not Richard Ryder and we’ll have to wait and see just what has happened to our original hero, but this was a fun series that featured a younger alternative team to the mainstream superhero groups of The Avengers and X-Men.

Also on the schedule is the second extra-sized classic Guardians Of The Galaxy trade paperback. Again, this team is getting revived and these adventures are timeless. If you like Marvel Cosmic this is an excellent place to start.

Another larger trade that may be of interest would be the Marvel Noir: Wolverine and The X-Men. These series of tales take place in an alternative, pulp fiction type world. This is the first, of what I am guessing, will be a three volume set of books.

What are you getting?
