See The Cover of Marvel’s Deathlok #2 By Tom Whalen

When Marvel Comics announced their new Avengers NOW! initiative, there were a few big bullet-point announcements. Thor’s a woman; the Falcon is the new Captain America; Iron Man’s getting a Genius-Bar costume change. But for a certain kind of comic book fan, the most important part of the announcement was: Deathlok.

The cyborg hero first appeared four decades ago, but 2014 has seen a veritable Deathlok renaissance. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. put its own spin on the character, transforming J. August Richards’ superpowered Mike Peterson into a scarred killing machine. And in October, Marvel is launching a new Deathlok ongoing series, written by Nathan Edmondson and drawn by Mike Perkins, focusing on sleeper agent Henry Hayes.

Here is the variant cover of Deathlok #2, illustrated by artist Tom Whalen, creator of countless alternate movie posters for MONDO.

At the Marvel Cup o’ Joe panel at the 2014 Comic-Con International: San Diego, the publisher announced a brand new line of comics featuring the character from the original Star Wars trilogy.

Three titles were announced, with the first being an ongoing series simply titled Star Wars, written by Jason Aaron (Original Sin, Thor: God of Thunder) and drawn by John Cassaday (Uncanny Avengers, Astonishing X-Men). The series picks up after the event of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, with Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa and Han Solo leading the Rebel Alliance, emboldened by their successful attack on the Death Star, as it goes on the offensive against the Empire. But things prove more difficult than they’d planned when Darth Vader shows up, with the Imperial Fleet at his back. Star War #1 ships in January.

Speaking of Darth Vader, the second series announced was Star Wars: Darth Vader, written by Kieron Gillen (Uncanny X-Men, Journey Into Mystery) and drawn by Salvador Larocca (Invincible Iron Man, Uncanny Avengers), with covers by Adi Granov (Iron Man: Extremis). Like Star Wars, this series pick up after the events of A New Hope, but shows you the other side of the war. While Darth Vader is the lone survivor of the Empire’s first crushing military defeat, he has also lost the faith and good will of his master, the Emperor. Now Vader must remind the entire Empire of why he is a figure to fear. The first issue ships in February.

The final series announced is a 5-issue miniseres, Star Wars: Princess Leia, from writer Mark Waid (Daredevil, Indestructible Hulk) and artist Terry Dodson (Uncanny X-Men, Marvel Knights Spider-Man). Like the other series, Princess Leia picks up after the events of A New Hope, with and sees Leia, a trained diplomat and rebel agent, coming to terms with the destruction of her peaceful homeworld, Alderaan. The first issue arrives in stores in March.
