Comic books continue to be released in huge numbers. As a result, interested individuals might want to check out some of the new options that will be released in 2019, which could very well suit their particular preferences. Here are five comic book characters that interested individuals might want to keep an eye on in 2019:
The Black Widow solo movie is happening, though it remains to be seen when it will see its release. For that matter, there are a bunch of issues that remain to be resolved about the upcoming project, with an excellent example being the recent report about Marvel mulling over making it a R-rated movie. Something that could enable it to present less family-friendly story-lines that would be well-suited for the character, though it would come at the cost of being a strong contrast to the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Regardless, seeing as how there will be a Black Widow movie, now seems like a good time to check out some Black Widow comics, particularly since a new story is scheduled to start up very soon. In short, the Soska Sisters are set to take charge of a new Black Widow series, which could be interesting because they are well-known for their work on horror movies.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Most people will be most familiar with Buffy the Vampire Slayer because of the TV show that ran from the late 1990s to the early 2000s. However, it should be noted that when the TV show came to a conclusion, its story continued on in the form of comic books released by Dark Horse. In 2018, those comic books came to a conclusion as well with what was called Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Twelve, but it seems that the franchise as a whole will continue on. In short, the co-creators Jordie Bellaire and Dan Mora are working on a new comic book series that won’t be either an adaptation of the TV show or a continuation of the TV show. Instead, it will be a re-imagination of the series, meaning that it will very much be its own thing. For people who have been waiting for further news about the potential reboot that could be coming at some point in the future, this could be the exact thing to tide them over in the time being.
Daredevil is set to receive a new series in February of 2019, which will be headed up by a team of Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto. At this point in time, there isn’t much indication of what interested individuals can expect from their work. However, Daredevil being Daredevil, it seems safe to say that the superhero’s path will be a rocky one. Most superheroes live what one might call exciting rather than stable lives, but Daredevil tends to be even more so in that regard than most of his counterparts.
Miles Morales is flying high at the moment. After all, Into the Spider-Verse has been a much bigger success than what people were expecting, which has raised his profile as well as the profiles of a lot of other Spider-Man related characters. Naturally, there is more Miles Morales content on the way, which is a team-up between writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Javier Garrón.
Marvel Comics’s Summers family is notorious for its confusing and convoluted nature. For proof, look no further than Cable, who is the biological son of Scott Summers and Madelyne Pryor, who in turn, is a clone of Jean Grey. On top of this, the character is further complicated by having been born in the present, sent to the future where he grew up, and then returned to the past from his perspective to prevent an unwanted outcome. Now, Cable is set to be more complicated still because of the new X-Force series, which will be following up on Cable having been killed by a younger Cable. Suffice to say that this is a horrible mess because of time travel shenanigans, but for some people out there, this is exactly the kind of thing that makes comic books fun.
