But, does that necessarily make them a better reading experience?
Let’s kill Daredevil this time… The carnage resulting from Magnetoâ€™s attack on the world continues to tear New York City apart as hero and civilian alike try and make sense of what is going on.

Marvel has announced that Invincible Iron Man #9 and War Machine #1 are both heade back to the printer for a second printing (complete with variants).

Before picking up Skaar: Son of Hulk #1, in stores today, you can read the events of Planet Hulk and World War Hulk for free. No, I’m not suggesting you hang around your LCS all day reading stuff for free, messing up the racks, and bending the precious, precious covers. Instead, I’m suggesting you head over to MDCU – that’s Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited – and red Hulk Saga online. Did I mention it is free?

In this outing, Image founders head for home, wall-crawlers head back to the big screen, X-Men head back to Earth, DCâ€™s Big Three head for trouble, the next big thing is twenty years ago, and we tackle head on one of the worldâ€™s great conundrums: Can Loganâ€™s claws pierce Steve Rogers’ shield? Plus, a look back at Frank Millerâ€™s opus. All this and much much more on this, as the podcast reaches the age of majority.
