POWERS OF X #4 continues the awesomeness that has been HoX / PoX!!!!

The new X-MEN books have been taking our racks by storm, and we’re telling ya now: every single issue so far (granted, there’s only been a few!) — has had us HOOKED!

After the big shockers in last week’s HOUSE OF X #2, the fun continues in the companion series, POWERS OF X this week, and Third Ey Faithful — you’re not gonna want to miss this!

In this week’s POWERS OF X, as Cerebro does as it was intended to do, Sinister does what Sinister does best and the future comes to an end. Superstar writer Jonathan Hickman (FF, NEW AVENGERS, INFINITY) continues his reshaping of X-History alongside breakout artist R.B. Silva (UNCANNY X-MEN). The Future of the X-Men begins here!

What’s the scoop on HOUSE OF X and POWER OF X? In the vein of milestone moments for X-MEN like GIANT SIZE X-MEN #1 and X-MEN #1 (the Claremont / Lee collaboration), HOUSE OF X and POWER OF X reduce the X-MEN line down to just two primary books, both of which written by Jonathan Hickman.

While the mysteries behind what’s actually going down in HOUSE OF X are too damn good for us to spoil here (trust us: you’re gonna wanna read and see these unfold in person) — we’ll say this: by the time you finish issue #1, your view of the X-MEN and their place in the Marvel Universe will have taken some drastic twists and turns, and left you with your jaw on the floor!

This is the definition of history-making comics, Third Eye Faithful, and we’re so darn excited to share these moments with you as they happen!

So, where do things begin? The fun starts in HOUSE OF X #1, where we see how since the release of Uncanny X-Men #1, there have been four seminal moments in the history of the X-Men. Giant-Sized X-Men. X-Men. Age of Apocalypse. New X-Men.

Four iconic series that introduced a new era for Marvel’s mutants and revolutionized the X-Men.

In House of X, Charles Xavier reveals his master plan for mutantkind…one that will bring mutants out of the shadow of mankind and into the light once more.

And, then in POWER OF X, superstar writer Jonathan Hickman (INFINTY, NEW AVENGERS, FF) continues his revolutionary new direction for the X-Men. Intertwining with HOUSE OF X, POWERS OF X reveals the secret past, present  and  future of mutantkind, changing the way you look at every X-Men story before and after.

HOUSE OF X / POWER OF X are set to change the entire landscape of the X-MEN in the Marvel U, and if you haven’t read the X-Titles in quite sometime: this is the place to get back on board!

We’ve been lucky enough to read both issue #1s, and while we can’t disclose what goes down — we can tell you right now: iconic characters, the X-Men you care about, the bad guys you love to see in action, the Marvel Universe and the X-Men interacting in a way that’s downright fascinating, and a take on the X-Men that’s so fresh — you’ll never see it coming!

Wanna get on board? We’ve got issues 1-4 of HOUSE OF X and issue 1-3 of POWERS OF X in stock to get you up to date!

With bad things happening all across the Multiverse, this may be Frankenstein’s last shot at setting things right.

The final Thor story by Jason Aaron & Esad Ribic (THOR GOD OF THUNDER) begins with King Thor #1 this Wednesday – and we cannot wait! Get ready for the best Thor creative team since Walt Simsonson’s final run — a perfect jumping on point as well for anyone not yet hip to Jason Aaron’s THOR!

We gotta tell ya: one of the true gems of comics has been the long-running Thor storyline from writer Jason Aaron, and the whole thing began and made history many moons ago with superstar artist ESAD RIBIC in THOR GOD OF THUNDER!

Now, the two are reuniting, to do one final run of Thor, in the post-WAR OF THE REALMS Marvel Universe, and we cannot wait!

While this picks up on many threads laid throughout Jason’s work already, this is also a great new reader-friendly entry point to anyone who has not yet been able to discover just how awesome Jason’s Thor is!

The creators of the legendary THOR: GOD OF THUNDER series that kicked off one of the most epic runs in Marvel history are back together for one last ride with the almighty Lord of Asgard!

Seven years ago, Jason and Esad introduced the Thor of the far future, All-Father of a broken realm and a dying universe, as he stood in battle against the Butcher of Gods, wielder of All-Black the Necrosword.

Now that nefarious blade has returned, in the hands of Thor’s all-time greatest enemy –  his brother, Loki –  for one final, cataclysmic showdown.

Behold the book no comics fan should miss –  the celebration of the end of a truly Marvelous era.

THE RIDDLER: YEAR OF THE VILLAIN ONE-SHOT delivers the next major moment in the storyline that’s been building throughout the entire DCU!

YEAR OF THE VILLAIN is leading us to some pretty huge stuff, Third Eye Faithful — but what that is, we can’t reveal. All we can say is that all of these tie-ins and one-shots featuring Apex Lex (Lex Luthor after introducing Martian DNA into his own) super-charging various bad guys throughout the DCU are taking us to something pretty epic!

In this weeks YEAR OF THE VILLAIN: THE RIDDLER, Lex Luthor has presented dark gifts to super-villains across the DC Universe, setting off what can only be called the Year of the Villain.

Unfortunately, resources are limited, so not everyone got something.

The Riddler is one such person, and he is most displeased about it.

Was this merely an oversight or a deliberate slight? The Riddler is determined to find out which-and so should you!

Gerard Way’s inspiration for the NETFLIX series, the Umbrella Academy, gets the prestige treatment with the new UMBRELLA ACADEMY: APOCALYPSE SUITE Library Edition!

In an inexplicable worldwide event, forty-three extraordinary children were spontaneously born by women who’d previously shown no signs of pregnancy.

Millionaire inventor Reginald Hargreeves adopted seven of the children; when asked why, his only explanation was, “To save the world.”

These children form a dysfunctional family with bizarre superpowers. Nearly a decade after their first mission, the team disbands, but when Hargreeves unexpectedly dies, the siblings reunite just in time to save the world once again.

This oversized hardcover reprints the 2008 limited edition collection of the complete first series, with the short stories “Mon Dieu!” and “But the Past Ain’t Through with You,” as well as an expanded 50-page sketchbook section.

VENOM #18 delivers another crucial ABSOLUTE CARNAGE tie-in, and we’re telling ya now: the ABSOLUTE CARNAGE tie-ins in VENOM are going to be major moments — make sure you snag em all beginning with issue #17!

Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman have been really doing some incredible stuff with their run of VENOM, and they’re showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon!

Carnage’s unlikely and symbiotic allies swarm Venom and his family! As all hell continues to break loose as Carnage’s army swarms the streets of New York, Eddie Brock has his hands full at Rex’s Warehouse! 

The tie-ins to ABSOLUTE CARNAGE began in VENOM #17, which we actually still have copies in stock now — and we’re telling ya: you don’t want to miss any of these, as the story being told in the ABSOLUTE CARNAGE tie-ins to VENOM are going to be must-haves!
