Penance Challenges The Green Goblin!

 

From the pages of Civil War, Robbie Baldwin, the man blamed for the Stamford tragedy, has assumed the guise of Penance and it's time for him to embark on a quest of redemption in Penance: Relentless #1 (of 5). From Civil War: Front Line scribe Paul Jenkins and fan favorite artist Paul Gulacy comes this tale of one man's slow descent into madness, obsession and perhaps the end of life as he knows it! When Penance takes one of the Thunderbolts' missions into his own hands he puts himself on a collision course with Norman Osborn-better known as the Green Goblin-and it's a battle of wills that will leave one man defeated!

 

He's the most hated man in America must now face off against possibly the most dangerous team in America, as Penance experiences visions leading him on a mission of life or death! What do the numbers in his visions mean? This fall, Penance: Relentless #1 (of 5) puts Robbie Baldwin on a path that will leave him forever changed!

The most "incredible" blockbuster of the summer is back in World War Hulk #4 (of 5)! From acclaimed writer Greg Pak and living legend John Romita JR comes the fourth chapter of the Marvel Comics event that has captivated critics and fans alike. The Hulk has converted Madison Square Garden into his own battle arena and captured those heroes who opposed him. The seemingly defeated Doctor Strange has returned, bonded with a demon to increase his own power…but at what cost to the Sorcerer Supreme? And when the dust settles, who will go too far to ensure their victory? The answer will shock you!

 

ComicBookResources.Com's Hannibal Tabu declared World War Hulk #3 a book "too good not to own" and said that the issue was, "Just mean and quotable and fun."

 

"Marvel's very own special effects master does not disappoint," said Comixfan.Com's Jason Grasso of Romita JR's art. "I just ask that you save my seat while I refill my popcorn."

 

BrokenFrontier.Com's Adrian Zettlemoyer exclaimed, "Romita flexes his muscles in this issue and reminds all the readers just why he is one of the top artists in the history of the medium… everything he does just feels right."
