Upcoming Comics for September 2018

Marvel has released their new comic solicitations for August, which include new issues of Avengers and Cosmic Ghost Rider!  There's also some interesting trade paperback collections solicited for October, including Doctor Strange: Damnation and Darkhold: Pages From the Book of Sins; that last one, along with some other horror collections like Tomb of Dracula and Blade: Sins of the Father makes me think there's probably something Midnight Sons related coming in October, we shall see! 

Finally, Marvel has made September the month for Cosmic Ghost Rider variant covers across their entire line!  I've posted the covers that have been revealed so far below, along with the list of which comics will be receiving these variants.
