As the country starts to slowly return to some sense of normalcy during the current COVID-19 crisis, so too is the comics industry. Today, Marvel released the next episode of THE PULL LIST, unveiling information for the hottest books coming to comic shops this September. After a teaser for X of Swords: Creation one-shot not too long ago, the first chapter of the much anticipated X of Swords crossover event kicks off in full gear for Marvel September books.
Also notable is an Immortal She-Hulk one-shot spinning out of the Empyre event penned by Immortal Hulk writer Al Ewing. Additionally, previously solicited books such as Shang-Chi and Black Widow have also been rescheduled for September.
