MARVEL UNLEASHES $2.99 MINI'S - Sends Heroes Back To Feudal Japan To Celebrate

"Hail HYDRA"? - No, 'Hail Marvel'! The latest wing on the House of Mouse notes five high-profile mini-series' will launch in March 2011, at the user friendly price of $2.99 per issue.

The fact that Captain America: Hail Hydra will no longer cost a pound of flesh means my wallet can breathe a sigh of relief. To bad that extra buck is going to be snapped up and then some, by 5 Ronin, another reduced cost mini which sees writer Peter Milligan chuck Hulk, Psylocke, Punisher, Wolverine and Deadpool back to feudal Japan, to learn the way of the Samurai in their own respective issues. Yip; Samurai - Hulk. Cool huh?

Each of the five bloodstained issues will feature a cover by hit artist David Aja or a variant by David Mack (Psylocke), John Cassaday (Wolverine), Giuseppe Camuncoli (Punisher), Mark Brooks (presumably Deadpool), and Ed McGuinness (presumably Hulk). 

David Mack on Psylocke? Now that's a match made in heaven!

The full range of Marvel's $2.99 mini's can be found here. C'mon, support more affordable comics!


  1. I was just waiting for you to post this Dan..i got excited because of the samurai theme which i really hope they make it right and of course David Aja making a cover i am definitely on board..

  2. and by the way have you seen the new badass Thor poster??..

  3. Predictable am I IFF? ;D

    I know they are all going to be sweet solo samurai tales, but Psylocke and Hulk seems like a pretty decent team-up too.

    Plus like you say it's all wrapped in David Aja goodness so who can complain?

  4. I actually saw a tweet of David Aja saying he has done 5 covers for i will be on the lookout for them.

  5. Nice - likewise!

    And that Thor cover is pretty damn cool.
