Cover by JAE LEE & RICHARD ISANOVE

“The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.” With those words, millions of readers were introduced to Stephen King’s Roland — an implacable gunslinger in search of the enigmatic Dark Tower, powering his way through a dangerous land filled with ancient technology and deadly magic. Now, in a comic book personally overseen by King himself, Roland’s past is revealed! Sumptuously drawn by Jae Lee and Richard Isanove, adapted by long-time Stephen King expert, Robin Furth (author of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower: A Concordance), and scripted by New York Times Bestseller Peter David, this series delves in depth into Roland’s origins — the perfect introduction to this incredibly realized world; while long-time fans will thrill to adventures merely hinted at in the novels. Be there for the very beginning of a modern classic of fantasy literature!

Recapping the entire series to date, the ULTIMATES SAGA will be told by their new leader, Tony Stark.

Now, no longer under the auspices of S.H.I.E.L.D., Tony Stark is forced to face the reality of his team’s newfound freedom. Having gotten his hands on Nick Fury’s personal files, Tony sifts through the information Nick has collected about the Ultimates’ adventures and discovers there’s been a lot more going on with his team than he ever anticipated. This 32-page special will also include an extra four-page section featuring an all-new story by C.B. Cebulski and superstar Travis Charest.

Cover by ANGEL MEDINA

The second massive hardcover collecting the status-quo-shattering BACK IN BLACK saga! Reeling in the aftermath of CIVIL WAR, Peter Parker has plenty of reasons to consider a change of wardrobe: Black is his state of mind. But the worst is yet to come for Spider-Man! In SENSATIONAL SPIDER-MAN, as Spider-Man and his family get used to the new status quo…other Spider-Men begin appearing all over the city. Younger, less-experienced versions of our web-spinning hero, causing havoc wherever they go. Who’s creating these arachnid dopplegangers and why? And will Peter Parker be able to stop them, and whoever’s behind them, before more lives are lost? And in SPIDER-MAN FAMILY, Peter Parker and his supporting cast get all-new, untold tales featuring the original alien symbiote black costume. Collecting SENSATIONAL SPIDER-MAN #35-40 and ANNUAL #1, SPIDER-MAN FAMILY #1-2, SPIDER–MAN: BACK IN BLACK HANDBOOK and MARVEL SPOTLIGHT: SPIDER–MAN–BACK IN BLACK.

Cover by PASQUAL FERRY

This deluxe hardcover collects ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR VOL. 7: GOD WAR TPB and ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR VOL. 8: DEVILS TPB! In GOD WAR, the Fantastic Four find themselves stranded in another dimension, hunted by the warriors from the dread world of Acheron – and its ruler, Thanos, won’t rest until he possesses the one weapon which will give him dominion over the entire cosmos: the mind of young Reed Richards! In DEVILS, meet the alchemist supreme: Ultimate Diablo! The Fantastic Four are pulled into a madman’s scheme when those closest to them are drawn back through time…and when the team follows the trail to the year 1483, they find themselves face-to-face with a man on a quest to transform the world – literally. Plus: Something strange has happened at Nursery Two, the Baxter Building’s Think Tank counterpart in Oregon. It’s disappeared, seemingly swallowed up by the earth itself! And if you think that heralds the return of the macabre Mole Man – go to the head of the class! And finally, Cerebro has been stolen – and the trail points directly at the government’s premier think tank, the Baxter Building! The X-Men aren’t happy about it — and the Baxter Building’s most famous residents, the Fantastic Four, aren’t happy about an angry team of mutants showing up on their doorstep! It’s FF versus X-Men in an all-star blowout! Collecting ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR #33-41 and ANNUAL #2, ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR/X-MEN, and ULTIMATE X-MEN/FANTASTIC FOUR.

Cover & Variant Cover by DAVID FINCH

In the aftermath of “Avengers Disassembled” come the New Avengers! With the Avengers disbanded following an attack by one of the team’s oldest members, a shadowy villain has taken advantage of their absence to initiate his ominous plans. Employing Electro to disrupt the electrical systems of the maximum-security prison known as the Raft, hundreds of super-powered villains are freed to wreak havoc on New York. Without the Avengers to answer the call, a group of heroes must form a makeshift alliance to subdue the rampaging villains and save the city. In the heat of battle, this new team fills the void left by the Avengers’ demise — the New Avengers. After shocking the Marvel fans with the series-shattering “Avengers Disassembled” storyline, writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist David Finch begin an all-new chapter in Marvel Comics history with New Avengers. Featuring a cast of fan-favorite characters including Wolverine, Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man and Spider-Woman teamed with the hard-edged heroes Luke Cage and the Sentry, New Avengers presents a 21st-century revitalization of the classic Avengers concept. Plus: The mystery of the Sentry revealed! The Avengers try to help the most powerful super hero in the world figure out who he is and where he came from! But will this knowledge destroy the man they’re trying to help?
