THE PUNISHER #13

SECRET SERVICE #4
i guess i dont drop wolverine & the x-men since it picked up at issues 3 and 4. looks like fury max will be spanning over different decades. i wonder if they'll do an issue where he finds captain america frozen. in the current/regular marvel universe, does cap still get found and unfrozen in the 60s, or has his 60s discovery been retconned to a later decade?
Unless the Marvel U takes place in the 70s or 80s I'd definitely say Cap's discovery time has been retconned to a more recent time.
-New Avengers #28
-Ultimate Comics X-Men #14
-Avenging Spider-Man #9
-Captain America #14
-Captain America #15: Hmm...Brubaker co-writing. Usually when they do that, he's phasing himself out of a book (X-Men, Cap & Bucky).
-Winter Soldier #8
-The Punisher #13
-Age of Apocalypse #5: Grabbed the first two issues for $1 and loved them. I think I'm going to keep getting them.
-Uncanny X-Force #27 & #28
-X-Factor #239 & #240
May Get/Not Getting But Worth Note
-Avengers vs. X-Men #7 & 8 (of 12): Issue #0 was OK. Haven't read #1 yet, so I'm still unsure if I'll get the whole thing or not.
-Avengers Academy #33: I had no clue Juston Seyfert was in the book until I grabbed the Runaways tie-in issues. Loved the "Sentinel" series. Now I gotta go back and start reading this series.
-Avengers Assemble #5: Awww, Hawkeye. Spider-Woman's going to be ticked.
-Dark Avengers #177 & 178: Interesting that they're changing the name and team, but keeping the old storyline and team going. Usually when they do that it's more or less a fresh start.
-Captain America and Iron Man #634: Still unsure if I'll keep getting it now that the Bucky part is done.
-Fantastic Four Annual #33: Dammit! Daredevil's annual is going to be tying in with other annuals? Might just pass on it then.
-Fury MAX #4: Wait, is this an ongoing? I thought it was a mini.
Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #12
Amazing Spider-Man #689
Amazing Spider-Man #690
Spider-Men #3 (of 5)
Marvel Universe Ultimate Spider-Man #4
Marvel sent over late solicitation and cover info for the following comics:
SCARLET SPIDER #7
SPIDER-MEN #3 (of 5)
ULTIMATE COMICS ULTIMATES #13
They have been integrated into the main solicitation text. Apologies for the inconvenience.
I should really pay attention and respond to this thread sooner: I've discovered another TPB for which I helped design the contents is coming out in July! And that TPB is:
Avengers: The Trial of Yellowjacket TPB! A huge TPB containing Avengers #212 to 230! Cover here.
This is the start of the "modern" era of Avengers. By that I mean: Issue #210 saw the end of the classic "Bronze Age" era of the Avengers - the "Bronze Age" being the 1970s Avengers team - Captain America, Beast, Wonder Man, Iron Man, Thor, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Moondragon. It was an era that probably started in the early '70s with the "Kree/Skrull" war, and slowly came to an end around 1980/81.
One of the last "Bronze Age" Avengers" (and a favorite of mine).
So starting with Issue #212 we have an all new (and evolving) line-up, that would come to include Tigra, She-Hulk, the female Captain Marvel, and Star Fox. Plus, the return of Yellowjacket and the Wasp.
This was years before Spider-Man and Wolverine joined in "New Avengers"!
There's actually numerous subplots going on in the range of issues, but as the title hints at, the main plotline revolves around Yellowjacket slowly giving in to his insecurities and self-loathing, with these stories touching upon issues of domestic violence (the infamous "punching Janet" scene). Actually, Jim Shooter has since said that he didn't intend to depict Hank Pym as a wife beater, but this stuff was still trail-blazing for it's time, and it was interesting to reread the issues while preparing for this TPB. A classic era for the Avengers!
My picks for the month :
Avengers vs X-Men #7 & 8
Wolverine and the X-Men #13 &14
Amazing Spider-Man #689 & 690
Ultimate Comics : Spider-Man #12
Wolverine and the X-Men Alpha and Omega HC
Oh yeah, and here's what I'm looking forward to reading:
Amazing Spider-Man #689-690: And it appears that Marvel's brought back Curt Connors. Maybe Dan Slott's trying to undo that last Lizard story (in which the Lizard ATE his own kid).
Avengers Academy #33
Avengers Assemble #5: Oh, how I've missed you Mark Bagley!
Avengers vs. X-Men #7-8
Captain America #14-15
Captain Marvel #1: WHAT THE...Carol Danvers is now Captain Marvel?!?
Fantastic Four #608: Desperately trying to catch up on reading this one...
Fantastic Four Annual #33: Yay, Alan Davis writes and provides artwork for this one!
Fury Max #4: Sooo...it's ongoing?!? AWESOME!
Incredible Hulk #11
Journey Into Mystery #641
New Avengers #28
Scarlet Spider #7
Secret Avengers #29
Space Punisher #1: Just wacky enough to be of interest. It helps that it's drawn by Mark Texeira.
The Punisher #13
Winter Soldier #8
Wolverine & the X-Men #13-14
X-Treme X-Men #1: Looks like this replaces Astonishing X-Men...and it also looks like it's a revival of "Exiles" (with alternate dimensions being mentioned in the solicitation). I'm intrigued, but I don't care for the cover. But then again, the cover artist is noted as being different than the interior artist...
