First Look | Marvel Comics 6/28: X-Factor #8, Wolverine #43, and Moon Knight: Director’s Cut

Civil War continues to wreak havoc in these two upcoming issues from Marvel Comics hitting store shelves June 28th!

Quicksilver, Spider-Man, Civil War Tie-in -X-Factor #8 A Must Have

X-Factor has been one of the breakout successes of the last year, spinning out of last year's blockbuster mini-series House of M, and things are about to get even more exciting for Jamie Madrox and crew as Quicksilver and Spider-Man guest-star.

X-Factor #8, the first part of a Civil War tie-in, shows the team of X-Factor Investigations as the Superhero Registration Act comes bearing down on the super-hero community. But as X-Factor stands on the verge of Civil War, a vilified former member makes his return.

Quicksilver was a founding member of the second incarnation of X-Factor, but is he now a friend or foe? And just what does Pietro have in mind for Mutant Town?

And Quicksilver isn't the only guest-star as a certain Friendly Neighborhood Wall-Crawler stops by. Now that wouldn't have anything to do with Civil War, would it?

Peter David and Dennis Calero pack all this and more into X-Factor #8. If you're a fan of anything, X-Factor #8 is for you!

Behind the Madness in Moon Knight #1 Director's Cut

Moon Knight has made a triumphant return in his very own ongoing series thanks to Charlie Huston and David Finch. Now, you can see how Huston and Finch captured lightening in a bottle and restored the Fist of Khonshu to his former greatness in Moon Knight #1 Director's Cut.

Featuring Charlie Huston's script of the first issue as well as early sketches by David Finch, Moon Knight #1 Director's Cut is the definitive look behind how Moon Knight became one of the most popular characters in the Marvel Universe once again.

Moon Knight #1 was an overwhelmingly successful relaunch, especially considering that Moon Knight hasn't had his own series in almost a decade. Retailers were happy to report that Moon Knight #1 was flying off their shelves complimenting the critical success it has received.

Robert Guadagno, retailer, New Moon Comics said, "This is the first time, in over 30 years of my involvement in this industry (as a fan and currently a retailer) that I've read the same book multiple times in one sitting. Everything about Moon Knight #1 was perfect to me, the story; although not what I expected at the end, was heart wrenching. David's art was exactly what Moon Knight deserves -Impact, emotion, and most of all respect!"

Greg Bolger of Academy Comics said, "Fans are loving this series so far and the reaction is extremely positive. Charlie Huston and David Finch hit a home run with this gritty book and deliver fans the Moon Knight they've been waiting for."

Pick up Moon Knight #1 Director's Cut to see how Huston and Finch have put Moon Knight back on top.
