Front Line gave readers a different persepective on he goings on of Marvel’s Civil War, and even provided a better ending to the saga than Civil War #7. Now, with the Hulk hurtling back to Earth, Marvel has announced Front Line will return this summer with World War Hulk: Front Line. Take the jump for the full size cover… I mean…if you want to see a big green foot and all…

Hot on the heels of the Daredevil Sneak Peek, Marvel also dropped off a four page preview of Stephen King’s Gunslinger Born #2. If you haven’t read the first issue, best hope your local comic shop still has one in stock as Gunslinger Born #2 goes on sale March 7.

Or – “Ohhh OHH! Thunderbolts ARE GO!” That is one uuuugly Venom. He actually looks like Sludge from the late, lamented Ultraverse, doesn’t he? This issue really amps up the volume on the violence, and gives us our first actual glance of the Thunderbolts in action, and I gotta tell you… Somebody in the government owes somebody in the private sector a HUUUUGE apology. I’m talkin’ huge. We do get to see the “Big Guns” concept in action on a villain scale, and it’s a bad scene, on a par with taking the brown acid. It’s your trip, man, but…
Or – “Why Do Ya Do Me Like You Do, Do, Do?” “Mary Sue: A pejorative term for a character who is portrayed in an overly idealized way and lacks noteworthy flaws, or has unreasonably romanticized flaws. Characters labeled Mary Sues, as well as the stories they appear in, are generally seen as wish-fulfillment fantasies of the author.” Why would I start off with THAT definition while reviewing Civil War: Frontline? Two words: Sally @#(*ing Floyd. From day one of this series, Sally has been an unusually annoying and omnipresent character, the central figure telling the “behind the lines” stories

The reclusive artist’s latest work has been on Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter: Guilty Pleasures and to help promote the sold out series, has agreed to sign and sketch for fans. “We’ve been friends with Brett for years, but we’ve always had trouble talking him into attending a convention, despite the fact that fans are always begging us to bring him,” laughed Les Dabel, Vice President of Dabel Brothers Productions. “We’re thrilled that he’s agreed to come and help promote the Anita Blake series just as
Since his public outing during Civil War, Peter Parker’s life has really gone down hill. After the events in Amazing Spider-Man #538, Spider-Man dons the black costume once more to reclaim his life. Marvel Comics has sent us a six page preview of Amazing Spider-Man #539.
Or – “Back When Princess Python Was A Credible Threat… To Pastries.” There are few conditions in the English language that have more entertaining (and insulting) euphemisms than mental instability… Going ape, barmy, batty, berzerk, bonkers, certifiable, crackers, cuckoo, daft, delirious, demented, deranged, flaky, flipped out, haywire, insane, lunatic, mad, mental, moonstruck, nuts, positively fourth street, psycho, screw loose, screwball, touched, unbalanced, whacko, and let’s not forget “speed-dialling the bozophone” and “full-blown-wackaloon.” Granted, these are all very insensitive to anyone who has these sorts of imbalances, no matter how much fun they are, especially since the reality of the breakdown
Or – “This Is The End, Beautiful Friend… The End.” I admit it. I initially only bought this title because of the presence of X-51, aka Mr. Machine, Sir MacHinery, Machine Man, and Aaron Stack. One of Kirby’s lesser-known creations, the big purple guy with the taillights for eyes first bowed in the 2001: A Space Odyssey series in 1978, and has never actually had a run that lasted more than 12 issues consecutively. His “Space Odyssey” run was three issues, his first book, titled Machine Man, ran 19 issues, but there was a break of almost a year between
