silversurfer-header.jpgThe Sentinel of the Spaceways returns in the all-new miniseries Silver Surfer: In Thy Name, and we’ve got a whopping 8-page preview! Meanwhile on the other side of the galaxy, all heck breaks loose in the war with the Phalanx in Annihilation: Conquest #1. Closer to home, Secret Invasion: Infiltration kicks off as the Avengers try to figure out the plans of the evil alien Skrulls in Avengers: The Initiative Annual #1 and New Avengers: Illuminati #5.



The Silver Surfers Soars Once More In Thy Name!

The Sentinel of the Spaceways soars once more in the all new Silver Surfer: In Thy Name #1 (of 4), as the Surfer finds himself embroiled in a conflict he may not be able to win! Written by acclaimed author Simon Spurrier (Gutsville, 2000AD), with gorgeous art by the Eisner-winning Tan Eng Huat (making his Marvel debut) and a stunning cover by superstar Michael Turner, In Thy Name takes Surfer into the farthest depths of space where he discovers a threat he can’t ignore! In this timely and relevant tale of a utopia taken over by an enlightened group who subjugate the masses in the name of the greater good, the Silver Surfer is drawn into their conflict and must choose a side. But can he possibly take action when he may be dealing with powers far greater-and deadlier-than his own? With the combination of dirty politics, organ stealing pirates, demonic beasts and more enemies waiting in the shadows, the former herald of Galactus is about to find out that heaven can indeed be hell!


Combining the lush pencils of Huat with the inventive and nuanced storytelling of Spurrier, Silver Surfer: In Thy Name #1 is a must-read for fans of Marvel’s most iconic space faring hero!

The Savior and Villain of Annihilation: Conquest Are Revealed!

After the shocking discovery in Annihilation: Conquest-Quasar #4, the prophesized savior of the universe stands revealed…but the universe still has no idea who’s truly behind the Conquest!


As Annihilation: Conquest #1 (of 6) opens, the new Quasar and the former Avenger known as Moondragon believe they’ve found a way to turn the tide in the war against the techno-organic threat of the Phalanx. But just who-or what-is the so-called liberator and will it choose to oppose an enemy who’s slaughtered all in its way? And just when you think that you’ve seen it all, the last-page shocker – brought to you by Nova writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning and red-hot penciler Tom Raney — will have every Marvel fan’s jaw on the floor! The true mastermind behind Conquest is revealed…and you’ll never guess who’s been pulling the strings! Top it off with stunning covers by Aleski Briclot, and this limited series has more sci-fi thrills than you can shake a Skrull at!


"If you’ve read the Prologue and have been following Nova, Quasar, Wraith and Star-Lord, know that the action, drama and mysteries are only going to rocket even higher when Conquest #1 hits. But if you’ve been waiting for Conquest itself, everything’s been planned for your arrival," said series editor Bill Rosemann. "Dan and Andy know that, like the cover says, this will be the first issue for many readers, so all the players and all the stakes will be clearly arranged for your discovery. If you’ve poked around online, you’ve no doubt heard the buzz about the craziness that’s been going down – now it’s your chance to see what cards the creators still have hidden up their sleeves. Robots, dragons and raccoons…oh my!"


It’s all been leading up to these pulse-pounding revelations and the battle you never expected to see! Alliances are formed, sinister plans set into motion and a final stand begins against a seemingly unstoppable foe in Annihilation: Conquest #1!
