Diamond Comics has put up all the Marvel Comics solicitations for September, and I have individually taken them off, one by one, and reproduced them below. But I also note there are a few missing spaces along the way – might they be filled with Star Wars solicitations yet to be approved by LucasFilm? Could be… say, have we stumbled onto a real scoop there? I'll keep checking back. The recent Swords listings had a lot more books out in September, as well as all the updates on titles like Doctor Doom, Strikeforce etc. No Donny Cates books either. Oh well, we'll add the rest when they are released. But there are definitely a few things of note from Marevl for September 2020.
A reduced selection, as expected. Only three X-books. A ten dollar Amazing Spider-Man #49. Big changes for the FF. Alex Ross' Timeless variants. A collection of the Bill Mantlo and Peter David Hulk comics that set up Immortal Hulk, now Immortal Hulk #0. Maybe more to come?
