    In celebration of Marvel’s 80th Anniversary, Marvel is excited to 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, Marvel is excited to announce an additional series of one shots 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, while Eisner winning writers David and Maria Lapham (Stray Bullets) and Luca Pizzari (Weapon X) will share an Old West tale in THE GUNHAWKS #1!

    Join in the celebration as Marvel invites you to return to a time when it wasn’t stories about super heroes that drove the industry, but stories of westerns, crime, romance, humor and science fiction…and look for Marvel’s 80th Anniversary one shot titles in your local comic shops starting next year!

    Those are just the first three, there'll be others in later months, some of which we already know about from NYCC.

    Gunhawks originally ran for seven issues in 1973, though the last issue was just called Gunhawk. Love Romances was a long runner, 1949 to 1963, 101 issues (from #6 to #106). And Ziggy Pig ran from 1944 to 1946, lasting only six issues (it was quarterly, with a full year gap between issues 4 and 5).

    very nice. The Timely/Atlas era characters should be similarly revived for one-shots and mini series, and also web cartoons, especially the WB/Disney/Lantz knockoffs.

    It'll be great to see new interpretations of the variety of titles produced over the years. It's not all just superheroes, you know.

    Synthezoids, I bet (I assume it'll be set in 616). The woman looks like Janet van Dyne, lol.

    My bad. But I'm still in. It's two robotic type beings falling in love and that's too beautiful for me to pass up.

    I will be picking up "Gunhawks"--and I appreciate Marvel at least giving some attention to its long history of Western comics. I wish it could have been the Ringo Kid instead, but Gunhawks will do. And who knows...maybe there will be guest appearances!
