Marvel Launches ‘Season One’ Graphic Novel Line
Published on Wednesday, July 20, 2011 by

In honor of their 50th Anniversary, Marvel will launch a series of Graphic Novels retelling the origins of their most popular characters for today’s audience.

Tom Brevoort spoke with USA Today about the new line saying “We’re hoping to introduce folks who have never read any of these characters to these characters in this format, and also provide an interesting and illuminating story for people who have read a lot of Fantastic Four and Daredevil.”

Brevoort added “Everything you know about them, everything that’s existed for the last 50 years still exists and is still there. These are individually new stories, even though they’ve got bits and pieces of old and formative origin stuff in and around them, as well.”

The first wave of Season One graphic novels will be:

Fantastic Four: Season One by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Stephen King’s The Stand, Glee) and David Marquez (Secret Warriors), due out in February;

X-Men: Season One by Dennis Hopeless (Legion Of Monsters) and Jamie McKelvie (Phonogram), on sale in March;

Daredevil: Season One by Antony Johnston (Daredevil) and Wellinton Alves (Nova), in April;

Spider-Man: Season One by Cullen Bunn (Fear Itself: The Deep, Sixth Gun) and Neil Edwards (Fantastic Four), arriving in May.
