History of the Marvel Universe #NCBD 24th July 2019


New Comic Book Day with History of the Marvel Universe.

Time to pick up some new comics from Worlds Apart Birmingham (formerly Nostalgia & Comics). These are Geeky Brummie’s picks of the comics available today from your local comic book store including History of the Marvel Universe, House of X & Dial H for Hero.



Title: History of the Marvel Universe

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Issue No.: 1

Creative Team: Mark Waid – Writer : Alvaro Lopez – Artist : Javier Rodriguez – Artist & Variant Cover Artist : Steve McNiven – Cover Artist : Nick Bradshaw, David Marquez & John Buscema – Variant Cover Artists

I used to love the old Handbook of Marvel Universe that told you everything you needed to know about all the Marvel characters. Some you won’t have even heard of. This book takes that interest to the next level with a lavishly illustrated guide of the entire history of the Marvel Universe. Starting as a conversation between Franklin Richards and Galactus we will be taken for a trip through everything that was and will be. I can’t wait.

From the Publisher:


Everything you ever wanted to know about the Marvel Universe — in one lavishly illustrated series!

From the Big Bang to the twilight of existence, HISTORY OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE chronicles completely, for the first time, everything that was, is or will be!

Lushly illustrated text tells the complete story of the Marvel Universe, revealing previously unknown secrets and serving as the ultimate reference book for Marvel fans! Witness the greatest tale ever told — and be prepared for some shocking revelations!


Title: House of X

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Issue No.: 1

Creative Team: Jonathan Hickman – Writer : Pepe Larraz – Artist & Cover Artist : Marte Garcia – Colorist : Sara Pichelli, John Tyler Christopher, Humberto Ramos, Skottie Young, Joe Madureira, Marco Checchetto, Adi Granov, Mike Huddleston, Phil Noto, Mark Brooks, Kevin Eastman, Lucio Parrillo, Dave Cockrum & Shannon Maer – Variant Cover Artists

Just when you thought the X story couldn’t get anymore complicated along comes Jonathan Hickman to reboot everything. In this series, alongside the Power of X book which will be published next week, Hickman will relaunch the merry mutants into the Marvel Universe. Things will change, new teams will form and the X-Men will never be the same again. You have been warned.

From the Publisher:


Superstar writer Jonathan Hickman (SECRET WARS, AVENGERS, FANTASTIC FOUR) takes the reins of the X-Men universe! Since the release of Uncanny X-Men #1, there have been four seminal moments in the history of the X-Men. Giant-Sized X-Men. X-Men. Age of Apocalypse. New X-Men. Four iconic series that introduced a new era for Marvel’s mutants and revolutionized the X-Men. In House of X, Charles Xavier reveals his master plan for mutantkind…one that will bring mutants out of the shadow of mankind and into the light once more.


Title: Dial H for Hero

Publisher: DC/Wonder Comics

Issue No.: 5

Creative Team: Sam Humphries – Writer : Joe Quinones – Artist & Cover Artist : Jordan Gibson – Colorist

Dial H has been picked up for 12 issues so this is no longer the penultimate issue. This book is joyous. Playing with the conventions of the comic medium and riffing on everything that is great about it, Sam Humphries and Joe Quinones continue to just have fun and thankfully we get to join them. The Wonder Comics imprint is one of the best things coming out of DC right now. Don’t be put off be the idea that these books are geared towards younger readers – nothing could be further from the truth – these books are for all of us who enjoy comics.

From the Publisher:

“The hunt is on! Miguel and Summer must journey into the Heroverse in pursuit of Mr. Thunderbolt, who has stolen the H-Dial and threatens to destroy it all! But if they wish to survive, Miguel and Summer must discover the secrets of the Operator, the origin of Mr. Thunderbolt and the history of the Heroverse! All the answers you’ve been waiting for are right here!
