Marvel and DC Comics Launch Two Hot Series Just In Time For Summer




Just like summer has its blockbuster movies, comics have their own much anticipated series runs. Wednesday, Marvel debuted Original Sin #1 and DC Comics releases its first issue of New 52 Future’s End.

In Original Sin, Uatu, the space-god, dies under mysterious circumstances. To catch the culprit, Nick Fury and his team of select superheroes must find answers to an ever growing list of questions. Marvel’s new series promises to probe into the lives of beloved Marvel superheroes, and reveal their secrets in this new murder mystery series.

In New 52 Future’s End, life looks bleak in the DC Universe. After a devastating war, Earth spins vulnerably in orbit defenseless against a new evil on the rise. Batman Beyond and his superhero compatriots must test their limits in order to prevent the impending apocalypse. During this series run, DC says one of the Justice League members will actually die.

Texas summers are hot, and with these releases, it just got a little bit hotter for superhero fans.
