After the effects of M-Day, who knew if there would ever be another mutant born in the world. In Messiah CompleX: One-Shot, a new mutant has arrived, and that causes nothing but trouble. Marvel has sent a limited sneak peek of the issue that spotlights things to come.
Or – “A Study In Contrasts…”
Daniel Rand. Introverted son of wealth.
Orson Randall. Self-destructive drug-addicted wanderer.
Both bearers of the burns of Shou-Lao, channelers of the power of the Iron Fist, both men of great drive and integrity, both heroes in wildly divergent ways. Both are men out of place, both are incredibly devoted to their friends, and neither would believe how similar they are. Now, after Orson’s death, Danny has to track down the loose ends of his predecessors life, only to find that the legacy of the Immortal Iron Fist and the Rand family fortune may be more closely tied than he ever expected.

Or – “Wanna See My New Favorite Comic Book?”
One of the marks of a really good comic book in today’s ‘Event-Driven’ industry (at least for me) is whether you’re tripped up by the question of “Where does this take place?” World War Hulk is a good example… The stories in Incredible Hulk are taking place between panels of the WWH limited series, but both stories are so well-crafted that I don’t worry about it. This book was written BEFORE the events of Civil War, obviously, but has been adjusted to take place AFTER the Stark Era, creating the possibility of those questions, but I’m having such fun with it that I don’t even care what’s up with Mandarin II.
Poor Peter Parker just doesn’t get a break; his ex-girlfriend is a superhero, his nemesis Green Goblin is on the loose, and he wakes up to discover he’s an agent of SHIELD.
Marvel has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Ultimate Spider-Man 115 that arrives October 24, 2007.
Another month and a new entry for our new series “Trades You Should Own”. I’m going to continue the theme of teenagers who find out their parents are evil with The Runaways, from Marvel Comics. It’s not quite Invincible, but is one of those trades that I highly recommend.
With the first three issues of Thor selling out like hotcakes at Diamond, Marvel has decided to collect the three issues into a minitrae to get readers up to speed in one fell swoop.
Featuring Thor’s return from beyond, the re-emergence of his homeland and the battle with Iron Man that had the Internet buzzing, Thor 1-3: Rebirth is the perfect jumping on point for fans new and old alike. Plus, don’t miss Thor #4, as Thor continues his quest to restore his people and his homeland…with shocking results!
The mini-trade will be available November 7. In the press info Marvel sent, there was no price listed. This doesn’t mean it is free, but could mean the price hasn’t been set, or they are hiding it from me after seeing one of my recent posts on the subject.
