MIGHTY AVENGERS HC CHO COVER
Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS
Penciled by FRANK CHO & MARK BAGLEY
Covers by FRANK CHO & MARK BAGLEY
The super-hero Civil War is over, but Iron Man’s work is just beginning. As the new head of S.H.I.E.L.D. and creator of the nationwide Initiative program, he’s rebuilding the Avengers with a handpicked roster of Earth’s mightiest heroes: Wasp, Black Widow, Wonder Man, Sentry, Ares and new team leader Ms. Marvel. A group this powerful should be ready for just about anything — except, perhaps, the return of genocidal killing machine Ultron. The Avengers’ insane robotic foe has rebuilt himself yet again, this time in the form of…a beautiful woman!? Then, the team faces an even bigger threat when their outlaw ex-teammate Spider-Woman shows up with evidence that shape-shifting Skrulls have infiltrated Earth. Iron Man faces a harrowing dilemma: Who can he trust when any one of his allies might be an undetectable alien invader? There’s no time to figure it out, though, when a bio-weapon transforms New York’s populace into Venom-like monsters. Plus: the New Avengers, a time-travel quest and an earth-shaking confrontation with Doctor Doom! Collecting MIGHTY AVENGERS #1-11.

Then, take a trip to the Helter Skelter Club — psychedelic hangout of every costumed wannabe, z-list villain and spandex tryhard in NYC. Its retro-tastic owner — Captain Pepper — has been up to his paisley-print elbows in bad business, but now he’s caught the attention of one decidedly ungroovy vigilante.

Cover by STAZ JOHNSON
Adaptations by LARRY HAMA
Presented for the first time in North America: two amazing tales by some of Europe’s top creators, starring the world’s most popular super heroes! First, in DAREDEVIL & CAPTAIN AMERICA: DEAD ON ARRIVAL, a series of bizarre murders suggests that a long-dead villain has returned from the grave. The desperate New York Police Department turns to the Man Without Fear, Daredevil, to solve the case. Daredevil, however, is unaware that Captain America is also investigating on behalf of Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. The result is all-out action and a titantic team-up for two of Marvel’s marquee heroes. Then, get ready for a vicious saga of bloody revenge as only the X-Men’s most popular mutant can deliver in WOLVERINE: SAUDADE! While on holiday in Brazil, Logan has his motorcycle stolen by a group of young boys — one of whom has a secret. When a brutal gang kidnaps the boy, Wolverine sets off on a quest to find him — leading to a deadly encounter with a corrupt faith healer who may not be what he appears! Plus: Brian Braddock, the original Captain Britain, is back in costume in a story from the U.K.’s SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN ADVENTURES #114 — but can even he help Spider-Man stop a Red Skull on the rampage?

Best-selling crime novelist Gregg Hurwitz (The Kill Clause, The Crime Writer) and Laurence Campbell (PUNISHER ANNUAL: THE HUNTED) bring you a tale of death, depravity and revenge south of the border.

That is, until one brave soul approaches Frank Castle with his heart in one hand and a bag full of money in the other. Now Frank’s no bounty hunter, and definitely no hero, but there are some things the Punisher just can’t abide. Collecting PUNISHER MAX #61-65 AND HUNTED.
