Loving Swagneto's new look
CrashTest - 12/13/2012, 6:05 AM
Looking good, loving Magneto's new helm as well. But still on reserve about Spiderman
sicknimon - 12/13/2012, 6:14 AM
Still on reserv about Guardians of the Galaxy. Gamora looks watered down and Groot looks like he's having a breakout! Somebody get that man some antibiotics stat! Looking at alot of these storylines about earth being the focal point of the galaxy, how is the age of Ultron tying in to all of it.
sicknimon - 12/13/2012, 6:16 AM
and it looks like Starlord just got back from a day at the salon WTF!!!!
HellsHammer - 12/13/2012, 6:23 AM
What a surprise, Gaurdians of the Galaxy is probably going to be the new big comic this year! Wonder why? :p
sicknimon - 12/13/2012, 6:29 AM
I don't know, why HellsHAmmer? :-)
drfate - 12/13/2012, 6:39 AM
JR JR: worst artist in the Marvel stable...also known as: Saleskiller
PsyGuy - 12/13/2012, 6:47 AM
All-New X-Men is awesome.
#8 & 9 sound really good
Tanngnjostr - 12/13/2012, 6:55 AM
@ DrFate: agreed. Just compare that Ribic's Thor and the JrJr cover...I mean, seriously?
jimoakley666 - 12/13/2012, 7:02 AM
Some amazing artwork there. Of note are the Wolverine, Wolverine & X-Men, Daredevil, All New and Guardians covers.

Wonder if that line up / look of the Guardians is anything to do with the movie? If I'm honest though, I always like Star Lord's trippy ww1 German style light-up helmet.
Bandido - 12/13/2012, 7:32 AM
Man...look at CHECCHETOS art...so good
Mrcool210 - 12/13/2012, 8:00 AM

I liked Marvel better when the X-Men dealt with X-Men stuff and the Avengers dealt with Avengers stuff. I'm not digging this X-Vengers mix/mash up Marvel is doing.
FightAs0ne - 12/13/2012, 10:44 AM
I've been really getting into All New Xmen so far.
TheAbomination - 12/13/2012, 10:56 AM
I have my doubts about GOTG. It'll be hard to top the awesomeness of issues 1-25 AND the Thanos Imperative. Still, looking forward to reading it.
avengersleagueofjusticeforamerica - 12/13/2012, 11:45 AM
ALL-NEW X-MEN AND THE DEATH OF THE FAMILY ARE THE TWO BEST STORIES ON THE SHELVES RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!

Temple - 12/13/2012, 12:48 PM
Avengers, new avengers, all new xmen, uncanny xmen, superior spiderman, indestructible hulk(mark waid-waids an amazing writer, I highly recommend his work to everyone) and daredevil(mark waid), are the top/must have titles for me.
SageMode - 12/13/2012, 3:06 PM
Ummmm.......since when did Electro become powerful enough to stand a slight chance against Thor?
AmazingFantasy - 12/13/2012, 4:52 PM
I hope Dock ruins Spider-Man career and makes him hated by all....

Said no one ever.


Alpha is shit an hopless.



Only one im looking forward to Ultimate Spider-Man.
