For the second year, Marvel is once again opening the doors to the Crypt of Shadows, showcasing creepy stories starring their characters by Al Ewing, Cavan Scott, Declan Shalvey, Sarah Gailey and more.
Crypt of Shadows was originally a 1970s reprint title of older Marvel material, but Marvel dug it up last year to spotlight new horror stories. This year’s anthology will feature stories starring Scarlet Witch, Deadpool, Daredevil, Man-Thing, Werewolf by Night and Hulk, among others. Victor Strange, Doctor Strange’s brother, will once again serve as “host.”

Marvel has been teasing Mary Jane Watson’s new power set, most notably in the recent Mary Jane & Black Cat miniseries, but the longtime supporting character will put on a costume and go full superhero in Amazing Spider-Man #31.
The oversized issue will not only feature a story by the regular creative team of Zeb Wells and John Romita Jr., but also will include a story by Celeste Bronfman and Alba Glez that features Mary Jane suiting up to become Jackpot.
Here’s a look at her costume, designed by Humberto Ramos:

Nightshade, Muzzle, Dark X-Men and more will appear in this year’s special.
As previously mentioned, this year’s Marvel’s Voices: Pride special will continue the tradition set by previous volumes and introduce new characters — specifically a new symbiote, a new Nightshade and a third character with a “fascinating” origin.
In the past, Marvel has used the Pride special introduced characters like Escapade and Somnus, two characters who have since appeared in Marauders and New Mutants. So there’s no telling where this year’s debuting characters could pop up next.
Here’s a look at each of them, plus some additional previews from the issue:

‘Marvel’s Voices: Pride’ will arrive in June, along with several Pride-themed variant covers.
Marvel has announced details for this year’s Pride special, which will once again come under the Marvel’s Voices banner in June. And like previous specials, which introduced new characters like Escapade and Somnus, this one also will include several character and creator debuts.
Probably the biggest news is that the special will introduce a new X-Men title that will debut later this year from Steve Foxe and Rosi Kampe. Their story will feature Gimmick, one of the Children of the Atom, who you might remember as being teased as the X-Men’s sidekicks before debuting (they all looked liked versions of the original X-Men) and starred in their own miniseries in 2020. The only true mutant on the team was Gimmick, who was later invited to the Hellfire Gala by Storm. I don’t think we’ve seen much of this team since they were introduced.

The new five-issue miniseries debuts in December from BOOM! Studios.
Eat the Rich writer Sarah Gailey and Trve Kvlt artist Liana Kangas will team up for Know Your Station, a new miniseries coming from BOOM! Studios.
As the Earth dies due to the climate crisis, the ultra-rich head into space, thinking they’re safe — until a murderer begins targeting them.
“I could not be more excited to explore new frontiers of wealth and violence in Know Your Station, a series in which space is no longer the one place that hasn’t been corrupted by capitalism,” said Gailey. “Working with Liana Kangas to develop this series has been a source of incredible creative joy, and there couldn’t be a better home for this story than BOOM! I am just thrilled to get to work with Liana to shine a light on the gory inner workings of the 1%.”

Back in the early 1990s Wolverine, Spider-Man, Ghost Rider and Hulk had a brief team-up in the pages of Fantastic Four while the actual Fantastic Four were out of town. It was a fun story by Walt Simonson and Art Adams that only last a few issues. But now Marvel will revisit that team — and time period — in The New Fantastic Four, a limited series by Peter David and Alan Robinson.
“Although their original stint was extremely short-lived, the alternate version of the FF has had its fans for years, including myself,” David said. “I am fortunate Marvel has given me the opportunity to revisit with them and take their battles to new heights in a new location with new allies and new enemies.”
Like Maestro and X-Men Legends, this story takes place in the past, shortly after the quartet’s first appearance.
