Marvel Brings Back Their First Super Team 'The Invaders' In honor of Marvel's 80th anniversary, Chip Zdarsky will reunite Cap, Bucky, the Human Torch... and Namor!
PUBLISHED October 2, 2018 by Jamie Frevele
Lots of great Marvel news has been coming out of New York Comic Con 2018, including several announcements about upcoming books. As part of Marvel's 80th anniversary, one familiar name was dropped on Thursday with the news that MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS would be returning in January 2019: the Invaders!
Writer Chip Zdarsky will team up with penciler Carlos Magno to bring the new story of the Invaders to life in INVADERS #1 in January 2019! Artist Butch Guice will create the cover; Mico Suayan and Alex Ross will provide variant covers.
Marvel's first super team made its first appearance in AVENGERS #71 back in 1969. The WWII-era team consisted of Captain America, Bucky Barnes, the original Human Torch (plus his sidekick Toro), and Namor. The powerful foursome will reunite this winter -- with Bucky as the Winter Soldier and Namor as their enemy. INVADERS #1 will see Cap, Bucky, and Jim Hammond facing Namor down as the Sub-Mariner tries to unleash a new deadly threat.
INVADERS #1, written by Chip Zdarsky with art by Carlos Magno, will go on sale in January 2019!
Prepare for the return of MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS, coming in January! And stay tuned to Marvel.com for more exclusive New York Comic Con reveals.
Guardians of the Galaxy
Last month, writer Donny Cates and artist Geoff Shaw revealed that their Guardians of the Galaxy would be made up of an all-new roster. And teasing the lineup, they asked #WhoAreTheGuardians? Today, we have our first answer...
The Cosmic Ghost Rider. Guardians of the Galaxy tease
A spacefaring Frank Castle, eons in the future, joins the new team next year when GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY begins anew in 2019.
The universe is on fire. Hundreds of worlds are at war. Never has there been such hatred and division across the cosmos. And in spite of all this, Thanos of Titan is still dead…or is he? Now, more than ever, the cosmos needs the Guardians of the Galaxy…but in the aftermath of the Infinity Wars, who is left to answer the call? Featuring every cosmic Super Hero in the known universe, a new adventure is set to begin.
“My first job at Marvel, with 'Thanos Wins', was inspired by the work of my hero, one of the greatest cosmic storytellers ever, Jim Starlin. So being able to tell that Thanos story was a dream come true,” says Cates. "And now that Thanos has died in the pages of INFINITY WARS, my best friend Geoff Shaw and I could not turn down the opportunity to tell a story set during the fallout of the Mad Titan’s death.”
“Geoff and I always lean towards stories that are a little bit loud," the writer explains, "and in space, the stakes and action can be bigger than anywhere else. This was our chance to do things we’ve always wanted to do. To tear #$%@ up.”
“And of course Cosmic Ghost Rider is on the team. How could he not be?”

Richard Mantle said:
A new Invaders title means I may have to ressurrect my Invaders read-along thread...?
Why, yes, I hope so!
A new Invaders series is something I am likely to buy.
I stuck around for all of Squadron Supreme, and I really wish I hadn’t. The questions about Namor’s severed head have already been answered, and answered more than adequately, by Richard.
“A new Invaders title means I may have to ressurrect my Invaders read-along thread...?”
Please do. I regret that I was too busy to participate in the first one, but I promise to if you bring it back for the new series.
