Get in on the ground floor of what’s new for Marvel in 2018 as AVENGERS reclaims its place as the flagship title of the MARVEL UNIVERSE!
We’ve been so darn pumped about what Marvel has on the way this Summer, with several new series kicking off, and a unified direction that’s bringing a focus back on high quality storytelling and artwork, and leading the charge is AVENGERS #1 from JASON AARON and ED MCGUINNESS!
Bringing the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes back to their roots and reuniting the classic AVENGERS trinity of THOR, IRON MAN and CAPTAIN AMERICA, arguably one of the best writers working in comics today, JASON AARON, is going to be making ours Marvel once again in a big way!
Thor Odinson. Steve Rogers. Tony Stark. The Big Three of the Avengers are reunited at last!
And just in time to save the world from total annihilation at the hands of their most powerful enemies yet: the 2000-foot-tall space gods known as Celestials.
Behold the coming of the Final Host.
Who will answer the call to assemble for a wild new era of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes?
Hint: one of them has a flaming skull for a head. And what strange, world-shaking connection exists between the Final Host and Odin’s ancient band of Prehistoric Avengers?
Third Eye Faithful, just trust us when we tell you that you do NOT want to sleep on this! This will be one of the biggest and best books of the Summer, and now is the time to dip you toes back into the Marvel Universe!

SHATTERED GRID continues this week in GO GO POWER RANGERS #9 with Chapter 4!!

The literal POWER RANGERS equivalent of CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS continues with SHATTERED GRID in the POWER RANGERS ANNUAL this week!
We’re huge, huge fans of what BOOM has done with their epic POWER RANGERS stuff, and the SHATTERED GRID storyline may be the coolest thing they’ve tackled yet!
In this week’s GO GO POWER RANGERS #9, the Rangers deal with the fallout of Rita’s sinister plan and Matthew’s startling return, and a new threat emerges with a shocking connection to Lord Drakkon.
What’s the scoop on SHATTERED GRID? OK, so, Boom has been totally killing it with their POWER RANGERS comics, and if you’ve been even thinking about jumping on – this is the time to do it.
In issue #25, the incredibly popular, and totally awesome evil Ranger, LORD DRAKKON, returns.
Who is Lord Drakkon? First appearing in MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #25, Lord Drakkon is an older, alternate reality version of Tommy Oliver (better known as the White and Green Ranger), who is an absolutely sinister character twisted by time and the world he resides in.

What’s the scoop on SHATTERED GRID?

This massive crossover spans MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS & GO GO POWER RANGERS, and much like iconic comic events like CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS and SECRET WARS, it will leave the entire world of the POWER RANGERS universe a different place.
In this massive storyline, nearly every POWER RANGERS friend and foe will make an appearance, and be involved, as Lord Drakkon wreaks utter and complete havoc!

VENOMIZED #5 finishes the mini-series that concludes what began in VENOMVERSE with the POISONS & sets the stage for what’s to come in Donny Cates & Ryan Stegman’s new ongoing VENOM series this Summer!

In the VENOMIZED mini-series, the story that began in VENOMVERSE reaches its epic conclusion with VENOMIZED! The POISONS, a species that hungers for super-powered symbiotes and their hosts, have picked their next target…THE MARVEL UNIVERSE ITSELF!
Their first objective? Put every superhuman in a Klyntar symbiote – and CONSUME THEM! But with VENOM and the X-MEN still missing after the events of “Poison-X,” the planet, and its heroes, is defenseless!
This will be the big finale to all the crazy symbiote-planet stuff that’s been running through the VENOM books for the last year or so, and will set the stage for what is easy the most anticipated VENOM series since the iconic RICK REMENDER & TONY MOORE run from a few years back!
In VENOMIZED #5, it’s winner take all when VENOM joins Earth’s heroes in an all-out final assault on the Poison base.
Will a new ally of the X-Men be enough to turn the tide against the might of Poison Thanos?
Earth’s warriors battle for not only the fate of the planet – but of the entire universe as they know it!

The road to Marvel’s new direction continues in a big way with INFINITY COUNTDOWN #3 as the search for the INFINITY GEM rages on!

The best darn cosmic Marvel book we’ve seen since the era of Abnett & Lanning’s GOTG and ANNIHILATION runs!
Marvel continues to keep on delivering the goods with INFINITY COUNTDOWN as this weeks issue #2 shows us that the secret is out about the Power Stone, and the Chitauri are in on the action as the Raptors, Novas and Guardians meet for a showdown in space!
PLUS: Adam Warlock enters the fray after the events of INFINITY COUNTDOWN: ADAM WARLOCK-his next move will set the stage for cosmic chaos to come!
What’s the scoop on INFINITY COUNTDOWN? Marvel is really, really building towards some very big stuff this Spring and Summer, and ground zero for a ton of it is in INFINITY COUNTDOWN, which is also the best darn cosmic Marvel book we’ve read since the ABNETT / LANNING-era of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, THANOS IMPERATIVE, WAR OF KINGS, and more!
INFINITY COUNTDOWN is one of a handful of “sleeper” storylines that will be leading into a mysterious big thing Marvel has planned for this Summer.
Much like LOIS AND CLARK, TITANS HUNT and others kind of paved the way for DC UNIVERSE REBIRTH — we are of the understanding that storylines like INFINITY COUNTDOWN, DAMNATION and more, are all taking us in the same direction: a big, epic change to the Marvel U as we know it.
In INFINITY COUNTDOWN #1, as the Infinity Stones reappear around the cosmos, the ultimate race for power is on!!
Battles will be fought, blood will be spilled, lives will be lost… all as the greatest cosmic heroes and villains vie for possession of the Power Stone, towering over a remote asteroid, somehow grown to the size of a building.
Watch as the path to Infinity opens before your eyes and the END lies near…
Need the INFINITY COUNTDOWN ADAM WARLOCK special, along with the INFINITY COUNTDOWN PRIME one-shot that served as prequels to INFINITY COUNTDOWN and of course, INFINITY COUNTDOWN #1? We’ve got ’em all in stock to catch you up!

One of the best mangas of the last decade gets a special deluxe reissue format! Now is a perfect time to dive into the FULLMETAL manga, or to upgrade your collection!
We’re huge fans of FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST, so when we saw that that the folks at Viz would be providing a deluxe reissue presentation of the series with their FULLMETAL EDITIONS, we knew we had to upgrade our copies!
In an alchemical ritual gone wrong, Edward Elric lost his arm and his leg, and his brother Alphonse became nothing but a soul in a suit of armor.

NIGHTWING: THE NEW ORDER arrives in trade paperback delivering a very SUPERMAN RED SON-style ELSEWORLDS for NIGHTWING!!

We’re huge fans of ELSEWORLDS like SUPERMAN RED SON and KINGDOM COME where we’re given an alternate look at the multiverse of the DC Universe, and how things could veer off into unexpected territory.
In NIGHTWING THE NEW ORDER, welcome to a near-future world where society has completely rejected super-heroes!
Metahumans are now illegal, and none other than the former Boy Wonder heads a government sponsored task force to hunt them down.
But what do you do when your own son is condemned by the very system you helped create?

Eson Duul is an evil man.
The mere mention of his name makes powerful quake with fear. H
e has no regard for life, including that of man.
But he may finally have met his match when he finds himself up against Red Sonja and Tarzan!

STAR TREK THE NEXT GENERATION + THE MIRROR UNIVERSE? Heck, we’re on board, and that’s exactly how we felt about last year’s STAR TREK MIRROR BROKEN (Available now in trade paperback!), so when we saw there’d be a follow-up — we had to give you the heads up!
Following up the smash-hit miniseries MIRROR BROKEN, the Mirror Universe Next Generation crew is looking for new worlds to conquer, and they’re crossing over to the Prime Star Trek Universe to find them!

CODA #1 delivers a stunning new post-apocalyptic fantasy that reads like MAD MAX meets LORD OF THE RINGS!

We love it when a new series grabs our attention, and CODA #1 from BOOM STUDIOS hooked us in a BIG WAY!
This killer blend of dystopian survival adventure ala MAD MAX with classic fantasy ala LORD OF THE RINGS is a must-read!
In the aftermath of an apocalypse which wiped out nearly all magic from a once-wondrous fantasy world, a former bard named Hum (a man of few words, so nicknamed because his standard reply is hmh) seeks a way to save the soul of his wife with nothing but a foul-tempered mutant unicorn and his wits to protect him…but is unwillingly drawn into a brutal power struggle which will decide forever who rules the Weird Wasteland.

In a gloomy town, where three girls have gone missing, high school girl Shizue witnesses an attack on a fellow classmate.
