A sneak peek at what Marvel has coming this autumn, including JMS' farewell to Thor in Thor: Defining Moments, the new Spidey series Web of Spider-Man, the upcoming Thor vs. Hercules battle, and Peter Bagge's Hulk cover from the much-anticipated Strange Tales #2.
THOR: DEFINING MOMENTS Concludes JMS' Historic Run With THOR This September
One of most acclaimed comic runs of the decade concludes this September as award-winning scribe J. Michael Straczynski brings his historic Thor story to a stunning conclusion! Thor: Defining Moments Giant-Size #1, from JMS and Young Guns ‘09 artist Marko Djurdjevic, is an action-packed conclusion to the Eisner-nominated epic that IGN.Com calls "The best Marvel comic on the stands." As the final curtain falls, will Thor's closest allies save him from the machinations of Loki? What does Dr Doom have planned? And just who will rule Asgard? JMS delivers the Thor finale that no Marvel fan, new or old, can afford to miss.
"It's been a terrific run, and a lot of fun," said JMS. "Warren Simons and Dan Buckley are to be thanked in particular for giving me the room to play and the freedom to just tell stories, a rarity in this business. Creatively, Thor was a high-water experience for me."
Thor editor Warren Simons added, "We're extremely proud of the extraordinary work J. Michael Straczynski has completed on Thor over the last two years. Along with Olivier Coipel and Marko Djurdjevic, JMS seamlessly reintroduced Thor and the other Asgardians into the Marvel Universe, returning the God of Thunder to his rightful place as one of Marvel's greatest icons. From the brilliant set-up of Asgardians living side-by-side with salt-of-the-earth folks in rural Oklahoma , to the current storyline featuring Asgard divided, JMS deftly wove great humor with great action, and the combination has made Thor a critical and commercial success. We couldn't be happier with his work, and we continue to look forward to working with him in the future."
This September, JMS will leave your jaws on the floor in Thor: Defining Moments Giant-Size #1, as his award-winning run concludes!

Marvel Announces Brand New WEB OF SPIDER-MAN Ongoing Series
After the stunning events of Amazing Spider-Man #600, Spider-Man's life is more unpredictable than ever-and it's about to get even more tangled in the all new ongoing Web of Spider-Man, launching this October! That's right, it's the first new Spider-Man monthly series in two years and it kicks off with a bang, as one of Spider-Man greatest-and most controversial-foes returns! Each extra-sized issue of Web of Spider-Man features your favorite Spider-Man writers and artists presenting can't-miss Spidey stories!
"With the ‘Gauntlet' storyline starting up and many classic adversaries of Spider-man coming back to the book, we wanted to find a place to tell you more about them without it eating up too many pages of the thrice-weekly Amazing Spider-Man," explained series editor Steve Wacker. "So while were tossing ideas around on where to best put that stuff, beleaguered assistant Tom Brennan came up with the notion to bring back the "Web" title as a way to give a home to stories to people caught up in Pete's life. Starting with the first issue's Kaine story by JM DeMatteis and then continuing onto stories about Electro, the Rhino, the Lizard and many more by Web-Head Fred van Lente and regular Spidey artist Barry Kitson, the stories here directly impact what we're doing in Amazing Spider-Man!"
Plus, don't miss the continuing adventures of Spider-Girl in this all-new ongoing series! Every month, Web of Spider-Man is your place to get the new adventures of Mayday Parker as brought to you by the incomparable team of Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz! What's next for the Spectacular Spider-Girl? Fans, new and old alike, will be thrilled by the answers!
Spider-Man's got everyone's spider-senses tingling with the thrice monthly Amazing Spider-Man, but now you can get even more Spider-action in Web of Spider-Man #1, arriving in stores this October!
