June.4

MARVEL

AVENGERS/INVADERS #2
The cross-time team-up of the year continues with the award winning team behind EARTH X, Justice and Project:Superpowers! With World War II’s greatest heroes mysteriously transported to 2008, it takes the Mighty Avengers to bring them in before the world realizes that the Invaders are back…including the original Captain America. But will Iron Man and S.H.I.E.L.D. have enough firepower to hold them…or do the Invaders have everyone just where they want them?

CABLE #4
The second phase of the war that began in “Messiah Complex” continues! There’s nothing better than catching up with an old war buddy, especially after the years have really started to pile up. You can rummage through the bad old days, revel in the glory days, and down quite a few beers on the back porch while the sun slips down over the horizon. But not so for Cable. Because his old war buddy has shown up with news that everyone he knows or cares about is dead. The battles are over, and they’re the only ones left on the losing side. If that weren’t enough, Bishop, their former ally, is just one bullet away from achieving his objective: killing the baby, and erasing the last shred of hope for mutantkind. All of the battles Cable has won mean nothing. Because suddenly, all of these years later, he’s in real danger of losing the war.

INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #2

The new ongoing series, a perfect jumping-on point for fans of this summer’s blockbuster, continues here! Tony Stark comes face-to-face with his biggest nightmare: an amoral twenty-something biohacker with no loyalties or allegiances to anything other than money and power. Oh, and he also happens to be the son of Tony’s greatest nemesis. But what’s the exact nature of Zeke Stane’s menace? It’s something unlike anything Tony has built before…and unlike anything Iron Man has had to beat before. The Golden Avenger faces the fight of his life! By rising star Matt Fraction (PUNISHER WAR JOURNAL, IMMORTAL IRON FIST) with jaw-dropping art by Salvador Larroca (UNCANNY X-MEN)!

SECRET INVASION #3
THE BLOCKBUSTER EVENT CONTINUES!

It’s Avenger versus Avenger. Hero versus hero! Norman Osborn versus Captain Marvel?? The Initiative versus an army of Super-Skrulls? Is Tony Stark really a–? And who’s that guy with an eye patch coming to save the day?? And, oh man, who did he bring with him?

YOUNG X-MEN #3

It’s the Young X-Men vs. the new Brotherhood of Evil Mutants! A traitor is revealed and the casualties mount as the team goes to battle. We hope there are Young X-Men left when the smoke clears.
