Marvel Comics will launch a new line of original graphic novels next year introducing new readers to some of its most popular characters.

The new publishing line, dubbed 'Season One', will explore the origin of characters like the Fantastic Four and the X-Men through hardcover graphic novel stories set in Marvel continuity.

Marvel Comics senior vice-president Tom Brevoort is quoted by USA Today as saying: "We're hoping to introduce folks who have never read any of these characters to these characters in this format, and also provide an interesting and illuminating story for people who have read a lot of Fantastic Four and Davedevil.

"Everything you know about them, everything that's existed for the last 50 years still exists and is still there. These are individually new stories, even though they've got bits and pieces of old and formative origin stuff in and around them as well."

The new line launches in February next year with Fantastic Four: Season One by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and David Marquez, followed closely by X-Men: Season One by Dennis Hopeless and Jamie McKelvie in March.

Daredevil: Season One will launch in April from the creative team of Antony Johnston and Willinton Alves, while Spider-Man: Season One by Cullen Bunn and Neil Edward will round out the first wave of titles in May.

DC Comics debuted a similar line of original graphic novels beginning last year with Superman: Earth One, and co-publisher Dan DiDio has promised that the line will continue in the future.
