Avenging Spider-Man #9 comes out a week before Carol's actual book comes out, so Avenging Spider-Man #9 seems to be the debut of her new Captain Marvel look.
So Avenging Spidey #9 was released today, and in real-world terms, yep, it's the debut of Carol's new look - but in Marvel Universe terms, the issue takes place after next week's Captain Marvel #1.

I've decided to save the issue to read next week.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

Avengers Assemble 5-- It took a couple of issues for this book to start rolling, but now that it has, it has become one of my most anticpated purchases. This issue was mostly character stuff, but it sets the wheels in motion for some nice cosmic action next issue. This is my first real exposure to this incarnation of the Guardians and they seem like a likeable bunch. It would be up to the fans of the DnA run to say if the characterizations were "on" or not, but I liked them.

Captain America 14-- The finale of the "Shock to the System" arc was a good read. This arc was the best Brubaker has written since the book re-booted.



The next arc, "New World Orders" (co-written with Bru by Cullen Bunn), is supposed to wrap all of Bru's hanging plot threads concerning Bravo and the New Hydra followed by a done-in-one that will tie a bow on Bru's run before the books "cancellation".

New Mutants 45- It was an interesting twist making the mysterious threat from the future not one, but two Doug Ramseys. Ever since they brought him back, they have gone to mostly successful lengths to make Doug less lame and more of an asset to a team. However, showing that one day he could be a legitimate threat was a twist that I didn't see coming. I'm in for at least one more issue, but as the book is ending with #50 anyway, I might just hang around till the end.

Defenders 8-- Defenders continues to entertain. I haven't been a huge fan of Matt Fraction in the past, but this book has largely been gold. I think this issue made it pretty clear that Felicia will be around for a while rather than just as a guest star, which I'm totally cool with. I do hope that we start to get a few answers about the Concordance Engines and the role they play in the universe at large soon.

Kieron Gillen remember is rumored to be taking over "Iron Man" with Greg Land, so perhaps with the cancellation of Uncanny X-Men, they're also ending "Journey Into Mystery" so he can focus directly on Iron Man?? Otherwise, that does seem weird.
Gillen said this to JiM's fans Tumblr on today...

kierongillen:

You’re a bunch of sweeties.

I’ll say this - which is more than I probably should - but one of the books I’m doing in Marvel Now will be of particular interest to the JIM-related Tumblr-Crowd. If my reading of you lovely lot is right anyway.

But between now and then, I have all the feels in the world for you.

It’s good stuff. Feeling is why we’re here.
"One of the books". Plural. Very Cool. Especially if one the books manages to carry over characters and themes from JiM. Could Gillen be taking over both "Iron Man" and "Thor"? That would put him on "Archetect" level.

That could be possible. "Thor" or whatever they end up calling it wasn't included in Rich's check list. I'd be excited if Gillen did both books

Space Punisher #1: I decided to check this out of curiosity and am glad I did. This was a whole of fun, more so than I was expecting and I really enjoyed the art as well.

Hell, in my opinion, Gillen never should have been taken off of Thor for Fraction in the first place.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

Looks like I might be wrong about no Spider-Man group books being effected..."Venom" though is a Rick Remender book and it would appear he's already going to be handling multiple books in the relaunch, and "Scarlet Spider" just started a few months ago and has been excellent so far, I'd hate to see it go. Unless of course they're planning on doing something bigger with these characters.

Venom is only a Remender title through issue 22 (August 1st release date); Cullen Bunn takes over with issue 23.

I hope nothing too dramatic happens with Scarlet Spider; I'm really enjoying that book.

I debated getting this. I really liked the painted art look of the book. That and Infernal Man-Thing(which I didn't comment on cause I thought I'd be the only one who got it) both have that look for mini-series right now. I opted instead to get the Valiant relaunch of Bloodshot #1 thinking I might could get Space Punisher easier in a $1 box.
Yes, I actually use as a factor my book budget on $1 box potential books.

There's already a Space Punisher, it's what Galactus calls this super droid he uses to kill fleets.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

If anyone is interested Marvel is doing live bloging for all of their panels. I'm following the House of Ideas one now, but nothing to interested has been said. It's mostly been discussing digital releases, Infinite comics, and social media.
Oh, and if anyone else follows these, and sees a comment from Jd Brodsky, that's me. I already commented on this panel.
The next one is The Next Big Thing, at 4:30pm- 5:30 pm Pacific time.
EDIT: The Next Big Thing Panel:
*The Panel features Sana Amanat, Marjorie Liu, Neal Adams, Daniel Way, Axel Alonso, James Asmus, Jeanine Schaefer, Peter David, Joe Keatinge and CB Cebulski.
*Gambit #1 starts with a shower scene. (Might be a joke....not sure)
*There will be a trip around the world honeymoon annual issue for Northstar and Kyle. There probelms won't go away now that they're married.
*Amanat said he sent a note to take off Hawkeye's shirt after hearing about Gambit's shower scene.
* "This is Ms. Marvel becoming Captain Marvel. She's transitioning into a new role, but she's as bad ass as ever. You see her passion for flight. You see a relationship from the past. She isn't the friendliest person on Earth, but she's good at what she does and she knows it. She's got passion, she's got flair and she's got style." - Sana Amanat
*"It's been an incredible ride. The most fun I've ever had on a series. I've been able to write every kind of story with Deadpool. I think we really go out on a high note." - Daniel Way
*Way has a new project he can't talk about.
*If you like Deadpool, you'll like the new project, Way gets to do what he does best.
*It's not the end for Deadpool.
*New Mutants will end with #50 in Oct., but they will continue to show up in "cool and interesting places"
*In an upcoming X-Factor called Run Layla, Run she will have to get across town in less than 20 minutes during a blackout.
*Peter David will be tying up his lose plot points in a 5 issue arc called Breaking Points. It will be drawn by Leonard Kirk
* "Saying 'things will never be the same' is an overused phrase, but it applies here. The team that comes out of X-Factor #245 will not be the one that goes into X-Factor #241. I'm really excited to see the reactions from you guys." - Peter David
*Red Hulk, will become Red She-Hulk starting with October's #58. It's credited to Jeff Parker, Carlo Pagulayan and Wellinton Alves.
EDIT: Oops not done
*It will have an impact on Hulk during Marvel Now.
*Thanos: Son of Titan by Joe Keatinge and Rich Elson starts in October.
*People are reading Captain Marvel and it's getting a really good reaction.
*If you liked Avengers you need to read the new Thanos series.
*Neal Adams talks about how he proposed a pre-X-Men mutant team lead by an X-Man.
* "Could it be that Wolverine's relationship with the X-Men runs deeper than we've ever known?" - Neal Adams
*: "First X-Men has Wolverine, it has Sabretooth, it has new X-Men and it has good stories." - Neal Adams
*Fan Questions now
*First X-Men will explore the Wolverine Sabertooth relationship. (I don't think this came from a question)
*Kate Bishop will be the only Young Avenger involved with Hawkeye. But there are big plans for the Young Avengers.
*There is something big planned for Nova and Rocket Raccoon (I'm not sure if this is referring to just them or the whole team).
*The X-Factor Breaking Points arc will deal with Polaris past. There is no question about Magneto being her father.
*They're "taking a long hard look at all the non-Earthbound characters.
*"You will see god-like characters in Thanos: Son of Titan. This series is Thanos learning about the universe around him and the genesis of him becoming who he will be. You'll be seeing a lot of characters you love and love to hate." - Sana Amanat "This is Thanos: Year One." - Axel Alonso
*"There's no absence of love for Doctor Strange. A lot of people have come to us with an interest. We want to do it right. We need to figure out what Marvel magic means, what the rules are. It can't just be a deus ex machina." - Axel Alonso
*There are big plans for Nick Fury.
*"The Ultimates are the Avengers on HBO." - Sana Amanat
*In September, we'll find out about a non-Runaways series featuring Runaways characters in major roles.
*Cloak and Dagger will appear in Amazing Spider-Man, and it'll have an impact on Peter.
*The non-Runaways book will feature some Secret Warriors.

Which lends even more credence to the rumors of Red Hulk's demise in AvX. I hope Betty still appears in Defenders.

I was kinda surprised no one asked about Red Hulk's fate during the Q&A.
EDIT: Do you guys want to me to keep doing the live announcements from the panels?
