Post Civil War II & Marvel Now 2016 Spoilers follow.

Marvel Comics released their Marvel Now 2016 November 2016 solicitations and here are three books to watch.

      FOOLKILLER #1

      Foolkiller #1A

      Foolkiller #1B

      Greg Salinger was just your typical merc for hire – FOOLKILLER – killing those that he deemed to be “foolish.” And for money. But that life is behind him now. Today, he’s a psychiatrist, trying to help others. But now S.H.I.E.L.D. wants him to try to rehabilitate super villains. The catch? If these “patients” don’t make enough progress, they’re dead!

      32 PGS./Parental Advisory …$3.99

I’m intrigued by the new premise. I’ll probably try issue #1 out.

And, did you know that the Unworthy Thor series that Marvel announced with great fanfare as part of Marvel Now 2016 is only a 5-issue mini-series? Marvel really must hate Thor fans, but clearly not as much as it hates Fantastic Four fans. 😉 🙁

      THE UNWORTHY THOR #1 (OF 5)

      Unworthy Thor #1A

      Unworthy Thor #1B

      Jason Aaron (W) • Olivier Coipel (A/C)
      Variant Cover by BRYAN HITCH
      Variant Cover by JOHN CASSADAY
      Hip-Hop Variant Cover by TBA
      Action Figure Odinson Variant Cover by JOHN TYLER CHRISTOPHER
      Divided We Stand Variant Cover by TBA
      Blank Variant Cover Also Available

      Odinson’s desperate search to regain his worthiness has taken him out into the cosmos, where he’s learned of the existence of a mysterious other Mjolnir. This weapon of unimaginable power, a relic from a dead universe, is the key to Odinson’s redemption — but some of the greatest villains of the Marvel Universe are now anxious to get their hands on it as well. Can The Odinson reclaim his honor, or will the power of thunder be wielded for evil? The quest for the hammer begins here.

      32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

I’m pretty intrigued by IVX or Inhumans vs. X-Men, but I feel Marvel is trying way to hard to have me care about the Inhumans and believe they’re important. The creative team, well primarily the artist Kenneth Rocafort, on this zero issue alone though is worth the steep price, literally, of admission.

      IVX #0

      IVX #0A

      IVX #0B

      IVX #0C

      CHARLES SOULE (W) • KENNETH ROCAFORT (A/C)
      Variant Cover by ALAN DAVIS
      Variant Cover by RON LIM

      This issue sets the stage for the upcoming Inhumans vs. X-Men mega-event! Learn who the major players will be, plus the seeds of the incredible plan that will unfold in IVX #1. Beast and Iso travel the world to learn a desperate truth, the X-Men assemble their ranks and the Inhumans prepare for the war to come. It all begins with one choice — see it here.

      40 PGS./Rated T+ …$4.99

Marvel, these books look interesting, but you need more books at the $2.99 price point IMHO.
