Here’s what Marvel Comics will have in stores this August

Not long after we showed you what Marvel as prepped for July, the company has come back with its August slate. Much like July, it’s loaded.

Back to normal?

It certainly looks like the industry is getting back to a place of normalcy after the pandemic. While that’s not over yet, in some places not by a long shot, it’s still good to see a company like Marvel talking scheduled releases.

As mentioned, we just told you about July (and June), but now we’ve got even more for you in the form of August’s comics. Marvel has released the latest episode of The Pull List, which will fill you in.

The long and the short of it though, is that there will be a full roster of books out there. Those range from the latest Empyre tie-ins (Marvel’s summer event book), to new Giant-Size’s, and even the shock return of… The New Fantastic Four. Yes, the one you’re thinking of.
