What some fans may not realize is that Marvel released a host of other titles in that very same month back in 1961, with Fantastic Four being the only super hero title available from the company at the time.
In May, fans new and old will get the chance to read many of Kirby’s rare contributions to the war and romance genres in The Complete Kirby War and Romance Omnibus from Marvel Comics.
Although the silver screen debut of The Eternals won’t be hitting theaters until November 2021, Marvel Comics will be prepping everyone for their emergence from the comic world with five graphic novel collections this January.
The Omnibus represents Kirby’s 1976 return to Marvel (and the character he co-created with Joe Simon in 1941) as well as some real odd-ball adventures such as the famous “Madbomb” storyline.
Not only are single issues of Black Panther up for grabs, but any ancillary Wakanda-related titles are also available for free, such as the recent Shuri and Killmonger titles.
In preparation for their big screen MCU debut (sometime in the near future. Hey, they are “eternal”, they can wait), Marvel is launching a brand new series based on Jack Kirby’s even “newer gods”, The Eternals in November.
