A special encore presentation of the instant-classic AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #692! • Get ready for an all-new tale about a different kind of power and responsibility… • WHO IS ALPHA?! 32 PGS./Rated T …$2.99

Really, instant classic? A comic from what, July? And you’re reprinting the comic in its entirety when it’ll easily be able to be found in the local comic shop’s back stock, because ASM isn’t some sort of Image book where there’s actual, if somewhat manufactured, scarcity? Bravo, indeed.

Hopefully the new Venom’s mouth looks just as much like the Sarlacc Pit in the comic as it does on this cover. Just 2 eyes above this fangy, slightly Freudian mess of a mouth.

Cover by DAVID YARDIN
RECONSTRUCTION CONTINUES!!! • Black Widow: Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.! • As America rebuilds, President Cap must find out who is behind the latest wave of attacks on the country! 32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

16 issues, 12 months, however many fill-in artists were needed to feed the insatiable Marvel printing presses. The end of a short era.

This time it’s a young soldier named JAKE NIMAN, but the familiar story puts Frank on the path of punishment! • As Jake Niman heals from his wounds, why is he growing strangely stronger? • And who is the mysterious Johnny Nightmare? • Bullets fly, anarchy reigns, allies become enemies, the Punisher becomes the punished, and no one is safe!!! 32 PGS. (EACH)/Parental Advisory …$3.99 (EACH)

What’s missing from this blurb? We’ve got 5 issues, for 4 dollars each, and hints at the skeleton of a plot, but no writer or artist. That’s 20 bucks over the course of a month, for what’s basically “it’s the Punisher but not the Punisher, but he fights the Punisher, and there’s a dude with a stupid name, and SUPERPOWERS!” and no details on who’ll be making the thing(of course, Marvel editorial seems to be to blame here, as this is another weekly event with one of Marvel’s “shooty man who shoots mans” characters, but I’m talking about actually writing the events and drawing what’s been written).

Also, great job there with the “Jake Niman/Johnny Nightmare” paralell, I’m sure it’ll be a total surprise when Jake Niman turns out to be Johnny Nightmare, who I assume is the bemohawked shadow on the cover there.

HAWKEYE #7 MATT FRACTION (W) • DAVID AJA (A/C)
Cherry’s got a gun. And she looks good in it. • Hawkeye gets distracted. Just like you are right now. 32 PGS./Rated T+ …$2.99

Cover by MARCO CHECCHETTO
The Punisher tries to break Cole out of jail.  • The Avengers stomp him. A lot. 32 PGS./Parental Advisory …$2.99

Everybody needs to read this, as it is awesome. Unless, as the cover seems to hint, they’ve recolored it, then shun it for sullying the amazing works of Moebius with modern, gradient-fetishist coloring.

DAREDEVIL: END OF DAYS #4 (of 8) BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS & David Mack (W) • KLAUS JANSON (A)
Cover by ALEX MALEEV Variant COVER BY DAVID MACK

Better than ever thanks to some last minute help from Doctor Octopus. • The Eisner and Harvey Award winner for book of the year continues to baffle all of us here at the House of Ideas! 32 PGS./Rated T+ …$2.99

I’m just getting the image of a Stilt-Man who’s just got 8 extendolegs splitting off the bottom of his body, and I know this will be at least a little disappointing for lack of that.

MARVEL’S IRON MAN 3 PRELUDE #1 (of 2) Chris Gage (W) Steve Kurth (A)
MARVEL’S THOR ADAPTATION #1 (of 2) CHRISTOS GAGE (W) • Lan Medina (A) blah blah blah movies give us your money blah blah blah blah 32 PGS./Rated T+ …$2.99

Why can we not get a consistent spelling of Christos Gage’s name? Sometimes he’s Christos Gage, sometimes Chris Gage, sometimes Christos N. Gage, it’s ridiculous.

WOLVERINE & THE X-MEN #23 Jason Aaron (W) • Nick Bradshaw (A/C)
Wolverine vs. Frankenstein! • The Murder Circus claims its victims! 32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

The climax of the first year of AGE OF APOCALYPSE! • The X-Terminated vs. Weapon X! • Jean Grey’s fate lies in the balance! 32 PGS./Parental Advisory …$2.99

That is an amazingly impractical bit of clothing on what I assume to be Jean Grey/Gray/Grae there.

 

X-FACTOR #250 Peter David (W) • Leonard Kirk (A)
Cover by DAVID YARDIN VARIANT COVER BY CLAY MANN
A year of X-FACTOR stories culminates here in the first part of “HELL ON EARTH WAR”! • The various Hell lords battle for domination in a war that was triggered by the seven billionth soul born on Earth, and only X-Factor can avoid the entire world going up in flames! • This is the beginning of the end for X-Factor as you know it… 32 PGS./Rated T+ …$2.99
