Darkhold Alpha #1 Preview: In Stores This Week… Maybe

Darkhold Alpha #1 is in stores from Marvel Comics on Wednesday. Or maybe the Wednesday after. It's not entirely clear, as the book was announced for September 29th originally, but now only the Stormbreakers variant is listed for that day on Previewsworld, with the other covers listed for October 6th. But look, what's one more week when you've already waited a year and a half? It's not like Marvel's constant super-mega-crossover events shake up the Marvel Universe every two months and would make a comic written two years ago seem completely out of place if published now, right? Either way, Marvel has released a preview, which you can enjoy below.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy claims that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Unfortunately, nobody can tell when the comics industry has reached its "darkest days" because it somehow keeps finding new lows to sink to. No matter! Jude Terror stands vigilant, bringing the snarkiest of comic book and pro wrestling clickbait to the undeserving readers of Bleeding Cool.
