Marvel NOW! Checklist

With last week’s launch of Uncanny Avengers #1, Marvel began their relaunch known as Marvel NOW! Instead of a full-on continuity-changing reboot like DC’s NEW 52, Marvel NOW! brings new creative teams and costume changes for characters.

Marvel NOW! is the next chapter in the ongoing saga of the Marvel Universe. From October through February, we’ll provide at least one great reason for readers—old, lapsed or new—to go into a comic store each week: a new issue #1, featuring an exciting new creative team and driving concept, that’s an easy entry-point into the Marvel Universe. Each and every one of these launches is built to last.

-Marvel Editor-in-Chief, Axel Alonso

Titles that were recently relaunched like Captain Marvel, Daredevil, Gambit & Hawkeye will be unaffected by Marvel NOW! and continue without changes.

Some current titles like Red-Hulk (changing to Red She-Hulk), Journey into Mystery (to focus on Sif) & Avengers Assemble (creative changes) will join Marvel NOW! without relaunching.

Make sure to bookmark this page, i’ll update this list when new Marvel NOW! titles are announced.

UPDATE (10/14): I spoke too soon about Daredevil being unaffected. While the creative team and numbering won’t change, Daredevil will join Marvel NOW! with issue #23.
