NEW WARRIORS #12
Written by KEVIN GREVIOUX
Penciled by PACO MEDINA
Cover by NIC KLEIN
“THRASHED” Part 4
When Night Thrasher offered them the opportunity to become super heroes once more, they leapt at the chance. They placed their trust in him. Even when one of their own fell at the hands of the Zodiac, they trusted him. And this is where that trust has led them: Powerless. Beaten. Running scared, trapped in the lair of a super-villain who’s out of their league. And the only man who can save them is Night Thrasher. But if he forsakes their trust this time, it’s their lives.

NOVA #13
Written by DAN ABNETT & ANDY LANNING
Penciled by WELLINGTON ALVES
Cover by ALEX MALEEV
Beginning a three-part adventure – starring Galactus and the Silver Surfer! Nova has received an emergency call from a planet in peril – but how do you save a world being devoured by a force of nature? Is there any way to stop the big G from eating, or do you instead try to save as many refugees as possible? And do you reach out to your former ally – who is once again a feared Herald? Whatever Nova decides, nothing will prepare him – or you – for the horror known as Harrow! With all these awesome ingredients (Galactus! Silver Surfer! Nova! A new villain! A killer creative team!), this is your chance to jump onboard the book that Wizard calls “one of Marvel’s most consistently entertaining monthly books!”

C’mon, do we even need to tease this cover? Seriously, just buy it. In the future, when comic books are valued solely on the basis of cuteness, Power Pack: Day One #3 will be worth more than Amazing Fantasy #15.

NEW X-MEN BY GRANT MORRISON ULTIMATE COLLECTION BOOK 1 TPB
Written by GRANT MORRISON
Penciled by FRANK QUITELY, ETHAN VAN SCIVER, LEINIL FRANCIS YU, IGOR KORDEY & TOM DERENICK
Cover by FRANK QUITELY
Sixteen million mutants dead – and that was just the beginning! In one bold stroke, writer Grant Morrison (All-Star Superman, Batman) propelled the X-Men into the 21st century – masterminding a challenging new direction for Marvel’s mutant heroes that began with the destruction of Genosha and never let up. Regarded as the most innovative thinker of the current comic-book renaissance, Morrison proceeded to turn the mutant-hero genre on its ear. Gone were the gaudy spandex costumes – replaced by slick, black leather and an attitude to match. Now, his entire Eisner Award-nominated run on NEW X-MEN is collected across three titanic trade paperbacks! Collects NEW X-MEN #114-126 and ANNUAL 2001.
