Feb 21st - S.H.E.I.L.D's long awaited finale

In 2010/11 Jonathan Hickman and Dustin Weaver embarked on an ambitious story telling journey. They set out to tell the story of the history of S.H.I.E.L.D. involving no less than the protagonist of Leonardo Da Vinci.

It was announced as a six part mini-series. Then something went awry. Issue #4 came out as scheduled and then a delay was announced.

That delay seemed endless, but now seven years later CBR reports that the final 2 issues are going to be finally released in May 2018.

“S.H.I.E.L.D.’s long hiatus, like the feeling of unfinished business, has been a nagging presence in the back of my mind,” added Weaver. “Finally having it out in the world will be very gratifying. I’m proud of it and excited to finally share the last issues. Having it out will also be a relief. I think now my spirit can go into the light and I won’t have to keep haunting Jonathan Hickman.”

Jan 29th - Doomsday Clock & Dark Metal

With Doomsday Clock underway and Dark Metal coming soon to a conclusion it does appear that big things are planned for the DC Universe, but according to CBR.com they may not be as expected.
In May 2018, one of the biggest fallouts from Dark Metal will be an end to the Justice League as we know it. This ending will be chronicled in a 4 part weekly series called Justice League: No Justice, and from this four new justice leagues will be created.
“The new teams, as we (CBR) learned on Friday, are as follows: Team Mystery, featuring Martian Manhunter, Sinestro, Superman, Starfire and Starro; Team Entropy, boasting Lobo, Lex Luthor, Beast Boy, Batman and Deathstroke; Team Wonder, comprised of Raven, Doctor Fate, Zatanna, Wonder Woman and Etrigan the Demon; and Team Wisdom, made of Cyborg, Harley Quinn, Atom, The Flash and Robin/Damian Wayne.”
Each one of these teams will have their own title beginning in June 2018, but at this time it has not been announced whether these will be replacing the currently bi monthly runs of Justice League and Justice League America.
However it is also worth noting that CBR have asked why Aquaman has not been included in either one of the four new teams. Though speculation abounds (and readers may recall a promised Rise of the Seven Seas was once announced some years ago) it appears that DC has something else in mind for the king of the seas…

Jan 15th - Conan the Barbarian is returning ??

For many years Marvel Comics has been the publisher of characters not originally conceived by the house of ideas. These additional characters are licensed to Marvel and usually came from the world of literature, or sometimes from the silver screen (in the case of Star Wars). And in news from Den of Geek!, one who has been away from Marvel for many years will be making his spectacular return.
In 2019 Conan the Barbarian is returning to Marvel Comics.
“From Barry Windsor-Smith to John Buscema to Neal Adams, a legendary line-up of amazing artists brought Conan to life in the pages of Marvel comics,” said C.B. Cebulski, editor-in-chief of Marvel in a statement. “It's a legacy we're now going to live up to with the talent we have lined up for the Cimmerian barbarian's homecoming in early 2019. We’re excited!”
As to whether Marvel’s “The Savage Sword of Conan” series is being revisited has yet to be confirmed.
