Marvel Launches New Morbius Series – What Happened To The Last One?

Originally there was meant to be a Morbius movie starring Jared Leto out from Marvel and Sony in earlier in the year. Filming was finished in June 2019, but the pandemic pushed the movie back to 2021 – for now. It also saw Marvel put the comic book on hold – with three solicited issues past #6 that never made it to print, though it appears that the first one at least was printed.

There is no sign of it on the solicitations, and it was suggested it may be delayed until the rescheduled movie to published alongside. But in February we are getting a new series from Ralph Macchio and Tom Reilly, Bond Of Blood, rather than Blood Of Bone by Vita Ayala, Marcelo Ferreira and Albert Albuquerque.

Here's the new comic book…
