na-header.jpgMaya Lopez, a.k.a. Echo, digs into the Skrull infiltration of the MU (and Kabuki‘s David Mack is there to handle the art chores) in New Avengers #39, while Marvel’s inimitable non-team reunites in The Last Defenders #1.



Echo and the Infiltration in New Avengers #39

Taking refuge in Avengers Penthouse, the New Avengers continue to elude Stark’s Mighty Avengers and continue their hunt to weed out Skrull imposters. New Avengers #39 follows Echo as a skeptical Maya Lopez, along with Wolverine riding shotgun, widens her eyes in a shocking revelation about the Skrull infiltration!

Superstar Brian Michael Bendis and award-winning artist David Mack (the man who created Echo) give us the next chapter in the events leading up to the highly anticipated Secret Invasion event! And they bring in a very special guest appearance by a character near and dear to both Bendis and Mack’s hearts! 

The New Avengers stand on the precipice of Secret Invasion and their ranks, as well as those of the entire superhero community, are about to be shaken to their very core! 

How deep have the Skrulls infiltrated the New Avengers? Could Echo and Wolverine provide more insight to the invasion? All this and an exciting Avenger hookup in New Avengers #39!

The Last Defenders Are Back in Action!


The newest Initiative team has been deployed to….. New Jersey ! The Last Defenders #1 (of 6), written by the sensational Joe Casey with lush pencils by Jim Muniz, starts us off with seasoned Defender veteran Nighthawk in action taking down some Serpent goons. After scoring a meeting with S.H.I.E.L.D director, Tony Stark, Nighthawk has got his super powered team consisting of his old friend Blazing Skull (who’s just looking to beat baddies up), She Hulk (who wants to get back at Tony Stark) and the former X-Man, Colossus (who has no place left to go). In their first mission, the team takes down the Sons of Serpents while awaking the feared Aztec god, Quetzalcoatl. There’s no telling how they will get themselves out of this one!


"The Last Defenders is the Marvel series I’ve been waiting my entire career to write," said Casey. "Every issue is jam-packed with superhero teambook goodness.  Jim’s art is phenomenal, and industry legend Keith Giffen pitched in with his classic storytelling chops.  For me as a writer, this one’s really got it all."


The Last Defenders is rip-roaring adventure and sure to make a Defenders fan out of anyone new and old! How will Nighthawk fare as a team leader? Can he control this team of quarrelsome hotheads? Also, there is trouble brewing in the sea beneath them and in the skies above! Find out who’s planning to make this team work for their paycheck in The Last Defenders #1 (of 6)
