It’s almost Halloween, so of course Marvel is pimping titles that will arrive in…
February 2020 (EDIT: see update at bottom of the page)? Well, promote when you can we guess. Anyway, two mini-series have been announced by the House of Fiege Ideas today. First is a five-issue mini starring Hawkguy titled Hawkeye: Freefall.
Here’s the solicitation for the first issue of Freefall:
HAWKEYE: FREEFALL #1 (of 5)
Written by MATTHEW ROSENBERG
Art by OTTO SCHMIDT
Cover by KIM JACINTO
HAWKEYE RETURNS IN A BRAND NEW SERIES!
When a mysterious and ruthless new Ronin starts tearing a destructive path through the city, suspicion immediately falls on Hawkeye, but Clint has more to worry about than who’s wearing his old costume. After a clash with the Hood ends badly, Hawkeye gives himself a new mission that will place him in the crosshairs of one of New York’s most dangerous villains.
Hawkeye’s mission and Ronin’s secret plans will set them on a collision course that only one of them will walk away from.
The second announcement is a four-issue mini starring both the Avengers and the Defenders titled Tarot. Here’s the solicitation for that:
TAROT #1 (of 4)
Written by ALAN DAVIS
Art and Cover by PAUL RENAUD
An all-new epic adventure teaming the classic Earth’s Mightiest Heroes with Marvel’s premiere Non-Team by Alan Davis and Paul Renaud!
A strange and impossible lost memory from his days in World War II draws Namor the Sub-Mariner to his one-time compatriot Captain America—but the two heroes and their respective allies find themselves pulled into a labyrinth of pain, destruction and madness courtesy of the Infernal Ichor of Ish’lzog!
Whatever happens for you on Valentines Day, at least you’ll have comics (EDIT: Though these will not longer be new)!
UPDATE 10/16/19: Damnit Marvel. Yesterday Marvel reported on the Hawkeye mini and stated it would arrive in February 2020, with Newsarama also saying the Avengers/Defenders title would be in February as well. Today Marvel updated their January 2020 pull list to include both Hawkeye: Freefall #1 and Tarot #1.
