Earlier this year at New York Comic Con, Marvel revealed that in honor of their 80th anniversary, they will be releasing three special one shot comics in early 2019.

What’s happening:

  • In celebration of Marvel’s 80th Anniversary, Marvel has announced they’ll kick off 2019 with a series of special one shots, from a variety of superstar writers and artists!
  • First announced at New York Comic Con, these additional series of one shots will go on sale this February – including the return of Ziggy Pig and Silly Seal! Frank Tieri (Wolverine, Space Punisher) and Jacob Chabot (Marvel Super Hero Adventures) will bring back the comedy duo in an all-new adventure.
