Marvel Announces More Launch Parties For Upcoming New Series

by James Ferguson

Marvel Comics has a launch party planned at participating comic shops for the release of Incoming in December. Why not roll that out for other titles as well? There are a few big launches / relaunches coming up including Star Wars, Thor, Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvels X, and Iron Man 2020. At this rate, you can have a party every week at your local comic shop.



Celebrate the launch of Thor #1 on January 1st, 2020 with a set of four Thor Launch Party Trading Cards, each spotlighting key new characters and concepts from the new creative team of Donny Cates and Nic Klein. While you’re at it, snag a Star Wars Launch Party Lithograph featuring Adi Granov’s artwork from The Empire Strikes Back.


The following week, on January 8th, 2020, pick up the Marvels X Launch Party Bookmark, revisiting the world of Earth X in a new series from Alex Ross, Jim Krueger, and Well-Bee. The week after that is Iron Man 2020 where you can dig into the extensive 2020 Iron Manual featuring everything you need to know about the launch of the new storyline from Dan Slott and Christos Gage with Iron Man characters from the past and present.

Finally, just in time for Valentine’s Day, get your hands on “Be Mine” cards featuring each member of the new Guardians of the Galaxy on January 22nd from Al Ewing and Juann Cabal. Exclusive party variant covers will be revealed at a later date.
What do you think of these incentives? Were you going to check out these books anyway? Or were you on the fence and these items pushed you over?
