First Look | Marvel Comics 11-29

It's almost Christmas, and when you think Christmas, you obviously think of….The Punisher? The Punisher X-mas Special is joined this week by a spotlight on Mary Jane in Sensational Spider-Man #32 while Spidey becomes a ninja in Spider-Man Family Feat. Spider-Clan, Wolverine slices and dices in What If? Wolverine: Enemy of the State, and a special look at Marvel's up-and-coming artists in the Young Guns Reloaded Sketchbook.  

Deadly Reindeer Games in Punisher: X-Mas Special

He's making a list and he's checking it twice. He knows if you've been naughty or nice. No, it's not Jolly Saint Nick. It's the deadly-serious Frank Castle, better known throughout the criminal underworld as the Punisher. Criminals are going to get more than a lump of coal in their stockings in this year's Punisher: X-Mas Special. And it's likely to be a bullet between the eyes.

When a little boy is murdered, the Punisher sets out to avenge those responsible for his death. Unfortunately, setting the naughty from the nice isn't as easy as Santa makes it seem. Castle becomes embroiled in a murder mystery where a fugitive, a disgraced cop and even the boy's grieving mother are all possible suspects. When the Punisher learns the truth behind the boy's death, will he be able to pull the trigger?

This holiday season, writer Stuart Moore and artist C.P. Smith, the team behind the critically acclaimed Wolverine #41, are giving the gift of holiday homicides in Punisher: X-Mas Special.

Logan Kills the Marvel Universe in What If? Wolverine: Enemy of the State

 

What If? returns and this time around, the series of one-shots will focus on the latest and greatest of Marvel events.  Next up, What If? Wolverine Enemy of the State! Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s "Enemy of the State" story arc was one of the defining Wolverine stories of recent years, but what if Wolverine hadn't been de-programmed? A Wolverine with no moral fiber, no remorse and no friends to stop him is a force to be feared.

 

It's a year later and Wolverine is still a Hand assassin. He's the best there is at what he does and after cutting his way through the Marvel Universe, there aren't many people alive who are willing to try to stop him. Only a handful of super heroes remain, but who is brave enough to go up against this unstoppable killing machine? A hero will rise, but at the end of the day, it might not be enough.

 

Jimmie Robinson, writer of the indie sensation Bomb Queen, teams up with artist Carmine Di Giandomenico to tell this exciting tale in What If? Wolverine Enemy of the State. With a beautiful cover by Doug Alexander, this creative team will weave a new thrilling end for this classic story.
