SOLICITATION: Impossible curves. Impossible shots. Impossible targets. Marvel’s #1 soldier of fortune is back in an explosive new ongoing series! The product of a failed super-soldier program, Neena Thurman always made her own luck as the sharpshooting mercenary known as Domino… but what happens when her own powers betray her? The hunter becomes the hunted as every mercenary in the game smells blood in the water! Plus: A pair of beloved Marvel characters return!

MATTHEW: An ongoing series for a former member of X-Force, the second least interesting X-Group? You better believe that this one is all about the creators, and I’m looking forward to Gail and David teaching me to love Neena Thurman…

EXILES #1
Writer: Saladin Ahmed
Artist: Javier Rodriguez
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Fan-favorite X-Man Blink once joined a team destined to save not just the world, but the entire Multiverse. And now, her teleporting talents are needed once again! When a mysterious threat begins eating away at the fabric of the Multiverse, the Unseen – the man once known as Nick Fury who now can only observe Earth from a lofty post on the moon – must recruit a champion to save it. But she can’t do it alone. Who will join Blink’s new team – and can they ever go home again?

MATTHEW: Man, I can’t believe it’s been that long since Exiles #1… I am psyched for this book, the creative team and characters involved and I hope it goes as long as the original.

GIDEON FALLS #2

Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: The brand-new supernatural mystery series by the acclaimed team of JEFF LEMIRE and ANDREA SORRENTINO (Old Man Logan, Green Arrow) continues.

The puzzle pieces begin to fall.

STEPHEN: Jeff Lemire has me hooked as the second issue hits stands. The Black Barn is scary as heck, and the mystery (and possible conspiracy) deepens. Definitely, a must read this week!

When their base of operations, known as the Campus, is savagely attacked, the Immortal Men must seek out their last hope-an emerging metahuman known as Caden Park! Caden’s emerging powers may be able to ensure the Immortal Men’s survival-but will Conquest get to him first?

MATTHEW: It’s an all Big Two publishers week for me, but I’ve been looking forward to this one since it was announced (even if I expect Jim Lee will last about three issues)…
