Check out Marvel’s books on sale 7/11/2018!

Amazing Spider-Man #1 !!!!! Dan Slott is out and Nick Spencer & Ryan Ottley are the new creative team on the book. If you haven’t read any Nick Spencer stuff I can safely say the book will be a little more ‘adult’. Nick Spencer has a history with Spider-Man as he worked on Superior Foes of Spider-Man, which was really good. Ryan Ottley was THE artist on Robert Kirkman’s Invincible! His artwork will lend very well to Amazing Spider-Man, guaranteed!

X-23 #1 comes out with Marika Tamaki & artist Juan Cabal at the helm. Laura sheds the Wolverine costume and returns to her roots as X-23 w/ Gabby at her side.

Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows, Daredevil, Deadpool Assassin, Domino, Exiles, Ms. Marvel, New Mutants: Dead Souls, Old Man Logan, Punisher, Quicksilver, Star Wars, Thrawn, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, X-Men Blue and a host of True Believers (Fantastic Four themed) titles are released.

The Infinity War (Darkhawk) & Hunt for Wolverine (Adamantium Agenda) forges on as we wait for the big events to kick off!
