The Captain Carter variant of Peggy Carter is going to star in a new Marvel Comics miniseries from creator Jamie McKelvie (Captain Marvel, Young Avengers) and artist Marika Cresta (Star Wars: Doctor Aphra). Captain Carter is a five-issue miniseries following the breakout star of Marvel's What If...? animated series, placing the hero as a woman out of time, similar to Captain America awakening from frozen ice in the present day. She will have to contend with the reappearance of an old foe in the modern-day, along with deciding what she stands for as the wielder of the shield.
"I'm as big a fan of the Captain Carter we've seen onscreen as anybody, so I jumped at the chance to create our own version," McKelvie said. "I'm having a great time exploring what it would be like for Peggy to wake up nearly 80 years after the end of the war. The world remembers the myth of Captain Carter, but to Peggy the reality was just yesterday. Now she finds herself in a nearly unrecognizable new world, how does she fit in? Can she be the super hero people want her to be? Exploring these questions has been really exciting, and I love the world Marika and I have come up with. I can't wait for people to see Marika's pages – there's so much life and energy to Peggy and the rest of the cast, and the action scenes are stunning."
Along with fan-favorite comic book runs, Jamie McKelvie is also known for designing new superhero costumes for Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel. He's putting those talents to use once again by crafting a new suit for Captain Carter, giving it a slightly updated look. Marvel recently hinted at a Captain Carter series with a tease of her red-white-and-blue shield.
Gotham City has changed tremendously in the 10 years since Bruce Wayne gave away his entire fortune and went to prison. After Terry McGinnis steals the Beyond suit for Gotham Motors CEO Derek Powers, Bruce escapes prison in order to try and stop Terry. And in order to do so, he's going to have to enlist the help of old friends...and old enemies.
Writer and Artist Sean Murphy is continuing his Batman: White Knight universe with Batman: Beyond The White Knight from DC Black label. The first issue in the eight issue mini-series will be available at comic book shops and digital retailers on March 29, 2022.
“I really missed working in Gotham and it feels so great to be back,” said Murphy. “Drawing Neo-Gotham as an upgraded, retrofitted futurescape has been a blast. I'm working hard to blend the Beyond aesthetic with the White Knight world. Batman Beyond and Terry McGinnis fans will get everything they loved about the animated series, as well as a few twists.

The killer celebration for Carnage’s 30th anniversary is just beginning!
In the aftermath of CARNAGE FOREVER, a mayhem-filled anthology one-shot on sale in February, comes an all-new ongoing series for Marvel’s most terrifying villain! Writer Ram V and artist Francesco Manna will kick off this visceral new chapter for the character in March’s CARNAGE #1, on sale March 2!
Already reinventing the symbiote mythos in the hit new VENOM series, Ram V’s thought-provoking work will now spill over into this all new ongoing series starring Venom’s most notorious offspring. And known for his masterful approach to brutal action on titles such as TRIALS OF ULTRAMAN and OLD MAN LOGAN, Franceso Manna’s dynamic art will make this one symbiote story you cannot afford to miss!
The new series will see the Carnage symbiote seeking a new bond after separating from longtime host Cletus Kasady. The two were the most notorious and prolific serial killers in the Marvel Universe but after the events of EXTREME CARNAGE, Cletus’ codex has found a new home, leaving the Carnage symbiote adrift, alone…and deadlier than ever before!
"This Carnage story is very likely to become the most twisted thing I've written,” Ram V promises. “The killer symbiote has gone through some pretty significant changes in recent times and I've been left with an opportunity to do something new and inventive with the character and the kind of stories you might expect to find in a Carnage book. This is my kind of horror—as frightening in its implications as it is on the page. This is a devilish, scary Carnage and he's setting out to discover just where the bounds of his abilities really lie. Pity those caught in his wake. The Marvel Universe is not ready for what Carnage is turning into."
DC's BLUE BEETLE film will no longer be a HBO Max exclusive and will release in theaters on August 18, 2023
Joshua Williamson has become one of the most prolific writers at DC, leaving an indelible mark on a host of DC titles and characters. He’s entertained comic book fans with celebrated runs on The Flash, Batman/Superman, Deathbed, Justice League vs. Suicide Squad, Justice League: No Justice, and Batman/The Flash: The Button. His exciting work continues on current titles, including Robin, Deathstroke Inc. (a key series in the upcoming Shadow War crossover), Justice League Incarnate, Infinite Frontier, and, most recently, Batman.
This March, Williamson and artist Leomacs (Hill House Comics’ Basketful of Heads) take Central City’s most infamous citizens out of retirement for one last—and potentially fatal—score in Rogues, a four-issue Prestige format DC Black Label limited series.
“Rogues is unlike anything I’ve done at DC,” says Williamson. “It’s closer to my own creator-owned works. It’s a crime book full of super-science, dark humor, lost civilizations, and crazy action set pieces, but it’s all played straight, with the dark edge and morality-play qualities of classic noir stories. Rogues takes everything we love about these classic characters and sends them violently crashing into a noir story that makes the ideal DC Black Label series.”
Ten years ago, the Rogues disbanded and went their separate ways. But time hasn’t been kind to the former blue-collar super-criminals. Caught in an endless cycle of prison, rehab, dead-end jobs, broken relationships, probation, and bottomless restitution fees, the Rogues are sick of paying for their crimes. Luckily, Captain Cold has a plan. One last job that will leave them all richer than their wildest dreams and free from their past…if they can survive. The Rogues plan to steal the world’s largest stockpile of undocumented, untraceable gold. But to pull off this heist, they’ll need to head into the heart of Gorilla City and rob Gorilla Grodd himself, a super-villain now turned ruthless boss of the largest crime syndicate on Earth. This DC Black Label series presents the Rogues as you’ve never seen them before, taking on a neo-noir heist guaranteed to make readers’ blood run cold.
The galaxy’s greatest smuggler and his Wookiee co-pilot are taking on a new job: starring in their own comic.
Han Solo & Chewbacca, a new series from Marvel, will launch in March 2022, StarWars.com can exclusively reveal. Written by Marc Guggenheim and penciled by David Messina, the monthly comic follows Han and Chewie a few years before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, as the duo teams up with Greedo — in better times, apparently — on a heist for Jabba the Hutt.
Writer Jason Aaron returns to the Punisher in March 2022 with a new 13-issue prestige format series simply titled Punisher that will turn Frank Castle's mission on its head.
In Punisher, Frank Castle is recruited by the Hand to serve their demonic master known as the Beast, thanks to his unparalleled skills at murder. As part of Frank's time with the Hand, he'll wear a new logo, don new armor, and even take up a sword, in line with the Hand's ninja style.
Punisher features art from Jesus Saiz, Paul Azaceta, and colorist Dave Stewart, with covers from Saiz.
"After writing the Punisher over the years, I've always been fascinated by the character of Frank Castle," Aaron, who wrote the Punisher MAX title, states about his return to the character. "What moments made him the Punisher, even before that fateful day in the park? And how far will he go to win the war that has consumed his life? Spoiler: as far as it damn well takes."
It seems that Aaron's story will push Frank Castle farther than ever, even earning him the dubious crown of 'King of Killers.'
"This story is the destined next step in the dark and tragic evolution of Frank Castle, from troubled kid to heroic soldier to revenge-driven vigilante…to the duly anointed King of Killers. Believe me when I say, I am as excited about this story as anything I’ve ever written for Marvel," Aaron concludes.
At the same time, Marvel editor-in-chief CB Cebulski promises the series will introduce a "side of Punisher we've never seen before," which represents Punisher's "inevitable evolution."
What does that mean exactly? Who knows - but perhaps Frank Castle is heading further into being a full-on villain.
Punisher #1 goes on sale March 2022.
