Mad Max: Fury Road, Game Of Thrones binge-watching, Agents of Atlas after Agent Carter, Deconstructing Guardians Of The Galaxy Solo Classic Omnibus, Annihilation Classic HC and what’s missing.
Finally, there is talk this week of the lack of Fantastic Four and X-Men merchandise and only scant appearances in the comics. I take a look at the current state of collected editions of these teams. There seems to be a fair amount of X-Men and Wolverine books, but barely any FF. Listed here are the only collected editions that are currently solicited:
Marvel Masterworks The Fantastic Four Volume 17 HC, 06/10/15
Fantastic Four Volume 4 The End Is Fourever TP, 06/17/15
Fantastic Four By Aguirre-Sacasa And Mcniven TP, 07/15/15
…and that’s it – no FF books after July 15 and that is with the movie coming out on August 7!
I hope this isn’t the end, but it sure looks bleak.
