Marvel announces plans for ‘Giant-Size Spider-Gwen,’ Miles Morales #300 in Los Angeles.
During a panel at this weekend’s L.A. Comic Con, Marvel announced two extra-sized doses of the Spider-gang that will arrive in stores next March.
Spider-Gwen will get the Giant-Size spotlight in Giant-Size Spider-Gwen by Melissa Flores and Alba Glez, while Miles Morales will celebrate 300 issues in the oversized Miles Morales: Spider-Man #18 by Cody Ziglar and a host of artists, including Sara Pichelli and Federico Vicentini.
“To be completely honest, it’s very surreal to be able to write Miles’ 300th issue,” Ziglar said. “This is a character I’ve been following and rooting for for almost 12 years now. There’s so much crammed into this issue and I’m forever grateful that I have been trusted to continue to carry the torch for Miles after [Brian Michael] Bendis and [Saladin] Ahmed.”

Peter Parker’s ex-girlfriends return in a tale of blackmail and revenge.
Two of Peter parker’s ex-girlfriends have proven to be a formidable team, and next March they’ll come together again to battle a supervillain that’s blackmailing both of them.
Jackpot and Black Cat brings together Felicia Hardy and the now-super-powered Mary Jane Watson in a new story by Celeste Bronfman and Emilio Laiso. The lucky ladies hhaveas appeared together before in the Black Cat & Mary Jane: Beyond one-shot, as well as the recent Dark Web miniseries that saw them pull off a heist in Limbo.
“MJ’s been a hero since day one, and I’m so excited to continue her journey as Jackpot—this time with Felicia Hardy by her side!” Bronfman said. “Opposites attract, and I’ve always loved the push and pull of their friendship. Expect them to butt heads through heists, betrayals, and the unexpected!”

Reis will re-team with Geoff Johns on the creator-owned series.
Artist Ivan Reis will team with Geoff Johns once again on Hyde Street, an upcoming creator-owned series that will fall under the recently announced Ghost Machine imprint.
Reis joins Johns, Jason Fabok, Gary Frank, Bryan Hitch, Brad Meltzer and more at Ghost Machine, a new company that aims to be a “first-of-its-kind creator-owned and operated media company.” I’m not sure how that differs from Image Comics, which has been creator-owned and operated for 30 years and will actually publish Ghost Machine’s titles, but there you go.

Benjamin Percy and Danny Kim team up to reveal a new chapter for the Spirit of Vengeance.
Johnny Blaze’s long ride as Ghost Rider will reach its end (again) as a new Ghost Rider debuts next year in Ghost Rider: Final Vengeance.
Yes, his 50-year ride comes to an end … minus all the years when he wasn’t Ghost Rider, which was from 1983, when the original series ended and Blaze became demon-free, until the early 2000s, when he was demon-cursed again. So maybe more like 30 years, with a nice gap in between runs when he was living the good life with his wife Roxanne and their kids?
Anyway, this time someone new is going to become Ghost Rider. No, not Danny Ketch, or Robbie Reyes … or that guy who rides the mastodon, or Ghost Rider 2099, or Cosmic Ghost Rider, or the one who was also sorcerer supreme … ah, hell, just take a look at Greg Capullo’s variant cover:

Artist Scott Godlewski joins the team for ‘Ms. Marvel: Mutant Menace,’ which follows the recently concluded ‘Ms. Marvel: The New Mutant.’
Although the most recent Ms. Marvel miniseries ended this week, fans of the character will be happy to learn that actress Iman Vellani and writer Sabir Pirzada will continue to tell stories featuring Kamal Khan next year.
Marvel has announced Ms. Marvel: Mutant Menace, which follows The New Mutant and features Scott Godlewski on art. Vellani, of course, plays Ms. Marvel in The Marvels and on the Disney+ show, and has proven she’s got talent on the other side of the screen as well.
“It’s been an absolute joy and privilege to get to co-write Ms. Marvel with Iman Vellani, who has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that she is THE voice of Ms. Marvel on the page just as much as she is on the screen,” Pirzada said. “We are excited to report that Kamala’s mutant journey will continue on in Ms. Marvel: Mutant Menace. It will be Kamala’s most dangerous ride yet.”

The new miniseries begins in February.
The Predator will hunt once again in a new miniseries by Ed Brisson and Francesco Manna next year.
Predator: The Last Hunt continues the story of Theta, a character Brisson co-created, as she continues on her “one-woman rampage across the spaceways to slay the deadly Yautja.” Theta appeared in the two Predator miniseries Marvel released last year under their 20th Century Studios imprint.
“I’m incredibly excited to be continuing my work on Predator,” Brisson said. “This is a book I love dearly. I’m proud of the work we’ve done in the past two volumes and think readers will be excited to see where we’re headed in this third volume. The stakes are higher than they’ve ever been.”

‘The Bat-Man: First Knight’ will kick off in March.
Dan Jurgens and Mike Perkins will revisit the earliest version of Batman — The Bat-Man — in a new three-issue miniseries kicking off next year. The Bat-Man: First Knight looks at one of Batman’s earliest cases “through an acutely modern lens.”
While this is Jurgens’ first Black Label title, it isn’t the first time he’s tackled tales of the 1930s-era Batman, as he worked on Generations: Shattered, which featured that early version of the character.

The do-gooder barbarian and his talking axe return next February.
Barbaric will return next year with a new miniseries, Born in Blood, written by Michael Moreci, drawn by Nathan Gooden, colored by Fabi Marques, lettered by Jim Campbell and designed by Tim Daniel.
Published by Vault Comics, Barbaric is the story of Owen, a cursed barbarian forced to do good, and his blood-hungry talking axe. This new story will show us Owen’s past — all the way back to his childhood.
“I’m so thrilled to announce the next big arc of Barbaric,” Gooden said. “This new arc is a deep dive into the history of Owen and the Barbarian clans. Readers get to see Owen as a child and how he becomes the ruthless Barbarian we all love. Friendships and alliances are splintering while Owen pushes against his curse. New characters and a brand new adventure will dramatically expand the world!”

Eric Powell celebrates 25 years of comic’s favorite tough guy.
Last year we learned that Eric Powell’s Albatross Funnybooks would become an imprint of Dark Horse, which begged the question: when will The Goon return from Dark Horse?
Answer: Next March. Powell will write and draw and new Goon miniseries — The Goon: Them That Don’t Stay Dead — just in time for the character’s 25th anniversary.
“It only speaks to the depravity and moral bankruptcy of the average comic reader that I have been able to continue this reprehensible book (off and on) for 25 years. And I love them for it,” said Powell. “My enthusiasm for these characters hasn’t waned and I’m glad it seems the same goes for the loyal readers. And it’s also only fitting that this anniversary series coincides with its return to longtime publisher Dark Horse Comics. COMICS! HIGH FIVE! … (You’re not posting up. Don’t leave me hangin’.)”

David Booher, Blue Delliquanti, Mildred Louis and Jimmy Betancourt bring the ghostbustin’ back to NYC next year.
The Ghostbusters team introduced in Ghostbusters: Afterlife will head back to where it all began in Ghostbusters: Back in Town.
Callie, Gary and company head to New York City in the new miniseries from Dark Horse Comics, as told by the stellar team of writer David Booher, artist Blue Delliquanti, colorist Mildred Louis and letterer Jimmy Betancourt of Comicraft. The miniseries also served as a prelude to Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, which arrives in theaters next year.
“Our friends at Dark Horse have picked up the Spengler family and hand delivered them to Manhattan where they will begin their journey back into Ghostbusting,” said Jason Reitman, director of Ghostbusters: Afterlife. “It has been a personal thrill to collaborate with this incredible group of artists and storytellers on new chapters in the proton jungle.”

The story of a forgotten Canadian city kicks off next year.
A project that was almost writer Ed Brisson’s first published comics project will finally see the light of day, as BOOM! Studios has announced The Displaced, which is about a city that has vanished without a trace and that no one can remember.
Brisson is joined by artist Luca Casalanguida, colorist Dee Cunniffe and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou on the project, which kicks off in February.
“The Displaced was almost my very first published work. About a year before Comeback was picked up by Shadowline/Image, I had pitched The Displaced and had interest from a publisher. However, after months of back-and-forth notes, the book ended up veering away from the book that I wanted to do, so we amicably parted ways. It was a tough call to make, but ultimately, the right one. This book is too dear to me, I didn’t want to lose that,” Brisson said in his email newsletter. “The concept sat in a digital drawer for years. I’d periodically take it out, blow off the dust, and work on it. Yet it always felt like there was a piece missing. At some point during 2022, that piece finally fell into place and I set out to pitch it again — the first time since that 2011 experience.”
Brisson has worked with BOOM! in the past, on titles like Cluster and The Last Contract, and The Displaced marks his return to the publisher for the first time in about seven years.

Cody Ziglar and Justin Mason return for more adventures starring Hobie Brown.
Marvel is getting the band back together for another Spider-Punk miniseries, by the reunited Cody Ziglar and Justin Mason. They worked on the previous miniseries starring Hobie Brown, which came out last year.
“Y’all, it feels so friggin’ cool to dive back into Earth-138 with Justin and explore the world of Hobie and the Spider-band even more!” Ziglar said. “There’s some new additions to the Spider-Punk roster, some real dope villains, and some other cool stuff I don’t wanna spoil… but absolutely cannot wait for folks! And yes, there’ll 100% be a Spider-Punk Playlist Vol. 2!”
