The comics industry has always recognized that they need new readers to keep the business going. After all, those of us who have been reading comics for decades aren’t always going to be here to make our weekly jaunts to the local comics shop, as sad as it is to point that out.

After finally enacting a complex plan of bringing the end of mutant-phobia sentiments in the UK, David Haller’s reward is a difficult visit with his estranged mother.

Marvel Comics recently released their solicitations for November of this year. There are a couple of things that have the Internet abuzz.
For an event named “Infinity,” it sure doesn’t last long. The first chapter has already come out, and November will see its end. But there will be very little, if any, lag time between Infinity and the next big Marvel event, which will be called Cataclysm.
The basic plot of that new event is that the characters in the Ultimate Universe (what I refer to as the U-verse) take on Galactus from the “regular” Marvel Universe (Marvel U).
WHAT’S GOING ON HERE?

After a harrowing fight that was literally all in his mind, the Superior Spider-Man is back to work and potentially Ghost-Peter-Parker free.

X-Men #1 is the latest addition to the X-Book scene. Can this cast of X-Men survive in a crowded world of mutant misfits when it doesn’t even garner an adjective?

Deadpool, the merc with a mouth and a sizable fan base, has been given the Marvel NOW treatment of having a completely new creative team; a team which has kept the book going for nine issues now, with no end currently in sight. As we all know, something does not have to be good for it to sell well, so does Deadpool have the quality to match the quantity? Find out, after the jump.
As any comic fan knows, Marvel just loves their events. It seems like every year we are getting a new company wide, multi-series spanning, universe altering event from the House of Ideas.
