Meanwhile, Tony Stark continues his quest to get the New Warriors to join his side...but after the death of one member last issue, will there be a team left to save?'s Richard George calls New Warriors a "must read" saying, "The characters are incredible and Paco Medina's art is astonishing."


Kevin Grevioux and Paco Medina's heart wrenching tale will shake the New Warriors to their core and will change series forever. Make sure you don't miss New Warriors #5, the issue that might just spell the end of the New Warriors as we know them!

The Exiles and Excalibur Meet In X-Men: Die By The Sword


Legendary X-writer Chris Claremont (Exiles, New Excalibur) and newcomer Jaun Santacruz present X-Men: Die By The Sword #1 (of 5), an x-citing new limited series teaming up two of Marvel's popular X-teams. Re-uniting Betsy and Brian Braddock, better known as Psylocke and Captain Britain, the events of this series affect the future of both teams-and tie directly into the shocking Exiles #100!


In an epic battle to save the microverse, Excalibur and the Exiles join forces for what may be the last time! Captain Britain and Psylocke have not seen each other since Betsy was first sent to the  Crystal   Palace ; however the Braddock family reunion is quickly cut short when a group of Excalibur's most diabolical foes conspire to conquer the various worlds frequented by the Exiles. 


To save their universe and the countless others in jeopardy, Excalibur joins forces with the Exiles and hunts down their reality-hopping adversaries. But who exactly are the true conspirators behind this plot?  And how did they find out about the multiple universes and the Exiles' Crystal   Palace ?


The answers to these questions and more come to light when the Exiles and Excalibur meet in X -Men: Die By the Sword #1.

The Punisher Enters World War Hulk!

The epic World War Hulk has come to Manhattan and this doesn't make Frank Castle, AKA The Punisher, a very happy man! In the extra-sized (jammed with even more story!) Punisher War Journal #12, from the acclaimed creative team of writer Matt Fraction and artist Ariel Olivetti, it's time for Frank to protect those left behind in the wake of Hulk's rage. But this is no ordinary man and this is no ordinary battle, so Frank will don something we can only call...the Venom Suit! Armed with his new costume, two chainsaws and a gun that shoots swords, it's time for the action story you demanded!


Critics continue to hail Punisher War Journal as one of Marvel's most exciting new series. "Matt Fraction has done an amazing job during his tenure on Punisher War Journal," said Kevin Powers of SilverBulletComicBooks.Com. "Matt Fraction continues to write an outstanding series... I can't wait to see who and what he brings in next."


As Mung The Inconceivable, a member of Hulk's Warbound, rampages through Manhattan , the Punisher and his allies put the alien in their crosshairs. But if the combined might of Marvel's Mightiest Heroes couldn't triumph over Hulk's allies, does the Punisher stand any chance? His new arsenal provides the answer in Punisher War Journal #12, the book that Olivetti was born to draw!
