New Warriors-related comics for January

Marvel Comics has released solicitations for comics shipping January 2008.

Be warned: the solicits for New Warriors volume 4 #8 all but outright state the identity of the person currently wearing the Night Thrasher armor. While a plot twist or curve ball is still possible, please read at your own risk.

With that in mind, it’s another busy month for the New Warriors. Night Thrasher vs. Midnight’s Fire, plus the return of Silhouette. Nova vs. Gamora – they’ll either make up or kill each other while lost in deep space. Penance vs. Nitro. Possibly the debut of Ultimate Firestar. Plus, the first trade paperback collection of the new New Warriors series, called either Defiant or The Next Right Thing. And more…

NEW WARRIORS #8
Written by KEVIN GREVIOUX
Penciled by JON MALIN
Cover by NIC KLEIN
While the rest of the team puts flights and tights on hold for a deserved night off, Night Thrasher decides to do a little solo work. But while he might be prepared for heavily-armed thugs and even a heated encounter with his former flame, Silhouette, can he handle coming face-to-face with his first and greatest adversary? Enter: Midnight’s Fire!

Cover by ADI GRANOV
A special standalone thriller trapping Nova and Gamora together! Allies, lovers, Phalanx puppets…and now the bitterest of enemies! Captured together by an alien menace, will the Human Rocket and the Deadliest Woman in the Universe work together to survive, or wind up killing each other instead? It’s dark, cosmic action and a love-hate clash as hit series writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, and new penciling sensation Wellinton Alves, deliver what Wizard calls a “one-stop shop for sci-fi spectaculars, superhero drama and real humanity.”
