As fans everywhere prepare for the return of new Marvel comics at their local comic shops next week, Marvel is set to reveal its release schedule for comics and collections through the rest of July. Upcoming releases include new installments for fan-favorite series like X-MEN, FANTASTIC FOUR, and AVENGERS, and the highly anticipated start of Marvel’s earth-shattering comics event, EMPYRE.
Now releasing weekly starting July 15, Marvel’s sprawling space epic will leave the Marvel Universe changed forever.

Cebulski. “We know Marvel fans are eager to dive back into the Marvel Universe, and we can’t wait to bring you spectacular new stories with stunning art every Wednesday.
