THE IMMORTAL IRON FIST #1   (SEP062117)

Written by ED BRUBAKER AND MATT FRACTION

Pencils and Cover by DAVID AJA, TRAVEL FOREMAN, and DEREK FRIDOLFS

Many years ago, in the mystical city of Kun' Lun, young Danny Rand stared at a suit behind glass — the garb of "the Immortal Iron Fist" — and knew that he was destined to wear it.  But where did this costume come from? Why did it wait for Danny all those years like a shadow of his future?

 

The answer to those questions will stun both him and his readers, as Danny Rand leaps from the pages of his breakout hit in DAREDEVIL to his own series – a history-spanning kung-fu epic that will shatter every perception of what it means to be the Immortal Iron Fist! Brought to you by top-ten writer Ed Brubaker and breakout talent Matt Fraction (Punisher War Journal), with action-packed art by David Aja (Daredevil, Giant-Size Wolverine).

SPIDER-MAN: REIGN #1 (OF 4)   (OCT062135)

Written by KAARE ANDREWS

Art & Cover by KAARE ANDREWS (50/50 Cover Split)

A searing vision of Spider-Man's future, brought to you by superstar Kaare Andrews (INCREDIBLE HULK). They finally did it.  Kicked them to the curb.  The "capes and tights" crowd — there's no place for them in the Big Apple anymore.  Peter Parker?  He can't even remember what it was like to don the red and blue and swing through the night sky.  Doesn't want to, anyway.  After all, there's nothing left to fight for, is there?  That is until an old "friend" appears on Peter's doorstep, bearing a package and a message — and everything changes.  If it's not Peter's responsibility, then whose is it?

Daredevil and Spider-Man Pay a Visit in White Tiger #2

Former FBI agent Angela Del Toro inherited her uncle Hector Ayala's jade tiger amulet as well as the mantle of the White Tiger. Donning her uncle's amulet, Angela becomes the White Tiger.

During her first foray out as a hero in White Tiger #1, Angela stumbles onto a lead connecting the Yakuza to a secret organization known as the Chaeyi. Pushed by the illusive new Daredevil, and driven by the death of her partner at the hands of the yakuza Sano Orii, Angela decides to investigate the matter further.

With help from her newfound peers in the superhero community, Angela acquires a new White Tiger costume and completes her transformation from former F.B.I. agent to super hero. However, Daredevil and Black Widow aren't the only ones with their eyes on Angela, members of the Chaeyi have also taken an interest in the new heroine.

Following a lead given to her by an old friend at the F.B.I., White Tiger is confronted by the yakuza Sano Orii and the new King Cobra.

Now beaten and bloodied, the new White Tiger Angela Del Toro's career may have ended sooner than she thought. It's a new hero with deadly problems in White Tiger #2.

Even Monsters Deserve a Holiday In Marvel Holiday Special

Celebrate the holidays with your favorite Marvel characters in the Marvel Holiday Special! Marvel brings you another installment of the Harvey Award-nominated special, featuring three stories by three exciting creative teams.

Collaborators Roger Langridge and Scott Gray, the duo behind the uproarious Marvel Monsters: Fin Fang Four, team-up again to give you the story of Fin Fang Four taking on Hydra in order to save the holiday season.

Mike Carey (X-Men, Ultimate Fantastic Four) and Mike Perkins (Captain America, Union Jack) bring you the story of Annihilus and the Thing. Taking over the cosmos is stressful, just ask Annihilus. What better way to unwind than with a holiday party, Ben Grimm-style.

Rounding out the special are four one-page stories written by Shaenon Garrity (Narbonic) with art by Ron Lim (Avengers Next), featuring the Incredible Hulk. The Hulk might be popular, but not popular enough to be invited to the A.I.M. holiday party? You've never seen a party crasher like the Hulk!

Join hands as Fin Fang Four, the Thing, Annihilus, and the Hulk ring in the New Year with dinners and battles, friends and foes, gifts and government agencies in the Marvel Holiday Special!

Ultimate Extinction Star Returns in Ultimate Vision Limited Series

Straight from the pages of the smash hit Ultimate Extinction, Ultimate Vision continues her quest to warn other worlds about the vile entity known as Gah Lak Tus in a new five-issue series. The tale of the strange alien entity unfolds in Ultimate Vision by acclaimed writer Mike Carey (Ultimate Fantastic Four, X-Men) and super-star artist Brandon Peterson (Ultimate Extinction).

Senior Editor Ralph Macchio says, "This series picks up directly on the events that concluded the widely heralded Ultimate Extinction. While Brandon Peterson's work was singled out for praise on those issues, his work on Ultimate Vision exceeds even that by quite a margin. It breaks new ground in dynamic storytelling. Don't miss it!"

Armed with the battles plans on how to defeat Gah Lak Tus and a new body built by Sam Wilson, the Vision sets out to fulfill her primary function to warn other worlds. However, A.I.M. scientist George Tarleton has other plans for the female robot. Plus, how does this tie into a Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing, or M.O.D.O.K.?
This time, Earth may not be able to survive against the ultimate devourer of worlds.

The stunning pencils of Brandon Peterson and the eloquent stylings of scribe Mike Carey bring Ultimate Vision to life in Ultimate Vision #1, a Mighty Marvel sci-fi thriller.
