Spider-Man Is Forever Changed In "One More Day"
It's the storyline that has the comic world buzzing and the event that will leave Spider-Man changed forever-it's One More Day, kicking off in Amazing Spider-Man #544! Written by the acclaimed J. Michael Straczynski, who redefined the wall-crawler for a new generation and penciled by Joe Quesada, one of the industry's most popular artists and Marvel's Editor-In-Chief, this storyline will tie together story threads seeded throughout JMS' six year tenure! When this four-part story concludes, nothing will ever be the same for Peter Parker, as his decision affects the past, present and future of everyone's favorite wall crawler! Each extra-sized issue of One More Day not only features two must-have 50/50 covers-one by Quesada himself and another by acclaimed artist Marko Djurdjevic-but is also packed with Director's Cut style extras!
"It's about the most terrible, awful thing in the world. Certainly the worst that Peter Parker has ever had to face," explained JMS. "He has to make a choice between two equally devastating possibilities, both of which will forever affect his life, and there is no third choice, no way around it."

Who Will Be Captain America 's " Chosen " Successor?
David Morrell, New York Times best-selling novelist, creator of Rambo and winner of the 2007 Inkpot Award, takes on the Sentinel of Liberty in Captain America : The Chosen #1 (of 6). Following in the tradition of the sold-out and critically acclaimed Spider-Man: Reign and Silver Surfer: Requiem, this brand new Marvel Knights series chronicles the final days of Captain America as he searches for a successor. Illustrated by fan favorite Mitch Breitweiser (Drax), Captain America: The Chosen offers a unique look at just how the world is affected by Captain America 's existence.
"Bestselling novelist David Morrell and the extremely talented Mitch Breitweiser have teamed up to bring their remarkable sensibilities to Captain America, in a life-or-death story set in the all-too-real theatre of overseas combat," explained series editor Alejandro Arbona. "This is no plain super hero romp - ‘The Chosen' brings Cap back to his roots as an extremely powerful icon and an inspiring embodiment of the virtues he stands for: courage, honor, loyalty and sacrifice."
With the re-envisioned Marvel Knights imprint red hot on the sales charts and a hit with critics, Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Captain America : The Chosen #1. This fall, prepare to experience a Captain America story like no other-and learn just who Steve Rogers chooses to carry on his legacy!

Will Moon Knight Be Burned By The Midnight Sun?
Acclaimed author Charlie Huston wraps up his stunning first year on Moon Knight with the pulse-pounding Moon Knight #12! A mentor and student have become bitter enemies, as Moon Knight must face his former sidekick Midnight for one final battle. Can the former hero be saved from the darkness within or will he be a victim of Moon Knight's savage brutality? Last time Moon Knight went all out, his opponent was left beaten, broken and skinned alive...so Midnight better hope that he lives to see the sunrise! And things won't be easy for Marc Spector, AKA Moon Knight, as Iron Man comes calling to see if he's an ally or an enemy of the Initiative!
"All I can say is sit back and enjoy the ride," gushed BrokenFrontier.Com's Kenneth Gallant of Moon Knight.
After his war of words with Iron Man and his war of fists (and other limbs) with Midnight, the many lives of Moon Knight will forever be altered...and that means someone's going down! It all happens in Moon Knight #12-and there's no turning back after this!
