Covers for Superior IronMan 1 and 2

Here we go, the egomaniac and villain-like Tony Stark is back in town and looking to reshape the Marvel Universe in his image. Unlike Spiderman, who was taken over by a villain in his own “Superior” relaunch, this is Tony Stark, not some substitute or replacement. By the second issue his actions have already set other heroes against him. How will this all pan out? Hopefully things go better for Daredevil than they went for Captain America when he clashed with Tony on his last villain like run (Civil War!).

Superior Iron Man #1
BE SUPERIOR! NEW CREATIVE TEAM TOM (INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US/EARTH 2) Taylor AND YILDIRAY (SUPERGIRL) ÇINAR START AN ALL-NEW SERIES SPINNING OUT OF AXIS! How much would you pay for perfection, beauty…immortality? TONY STARK is going to find out. The AXIS EFFECT has changed IRON MAN • Now HE’S going to change the WORLD…at a terrible cost.

Superior Iron Man #2
THE SUPERIORITY COMPLEX! TONY STARK has transformed SAN FRANCISCO…into the prototype for his NEW WORLD concept. But MATT MURDOCK isn’t down with Tony’s new vision. Can DAREDEVIL lead the rebellion against THE SUPERIOR IRON MAN?

Issue 1 comes out tomorrow, November 12th, 2014 and issue 2 hits in just 2 weeks on November 26, 2014. Will you be picking up this new chapter in Tony Stark’s life?

Action Comics Future End 1

You can’t tell from the above image, but this issue (along with so many others) has a 3D motion cover. The image changes from the left graphic to the right one, etc. It brings me right back to the gimmick covers of the 90s. Anyhow, just in time for September’s third anniversary of DC Comic’s “The New 52” relaunch comes a universe wide tie in to DC’s event series “Futures End”. The series has spotlighted what “The New 52” universe looks like 5 years into the future after a multiverse war has changed the status quo big time.

Action Comics: Futures End #1
Official Description: With the Man of Steel missing, ordinary people around the world start to mysteriously exhibit his strengths and abilities…

The issue comes from DC Comics on September 3rd, 2014 with the cover by Lee Weeks, art by Pascal Alixe, and writing by Sholly Fisch.

Have you been following the weekly “Futures End” series? Excited to see spotlight stories set in the bleak future across titles?
