Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Heroic Age: One Month to Live #1 that arrives in stores September 01, 2010. “From the moment we read the script and saw the first pencils, we knew we had a special book in Heroic Age: One Month To Live,” said David Gabriel, Marvel Senior Vice President of Sales & Circulation. “With so many major Marvel heroes guest-starring, this is the perfect book for current fans and new readers, which made it a natural to fit on the Marvel Comics app shortly after it hits stores.”

Or – “And Seriously, Don’t Even Get Me Started On All The Buckys!” Day two of the Major Spoilers Star-Spangled Weekend™, I’m freshly sunburnt from swimming, but still Ready, Willing and Able (Attorneys At Law?) to go over some of the high-points of last month’s comic book output.

Or – “April Showers Bring May Flowers, But Mayflowers Only Bring Religious Dissidents…” Man, it has been a LOOOONG month of May.
