When they find themselves in disagreement over the criminal known as The Bank, they’re in for one of the most brutal fights of their lives!

Weapon X #1> Decades ago, the Weapon X program produced the deadliest mutant killers on the planet.

Reuniting X-Men: Phoenix – Endsong creative team GREG PAK (World War Hulk) and GREG LAND (Uncanny X-Men)! (S) Greg Pak (A/CA) Greg Land

Smurfs Take> The last couple Weapon X series have been fantastic and I am optimistic that this will follow suit. It’s rare these days the X-Men are in my top 5 let alone two X-Titles but this one time I would like to have a decent X-Book and if one can deliver I think it will be this one.



Amazing Spider-Man #26> “THE OSBORN IDENTITY” CONTINUES! Silver Sable comes back into Spider-Man’s life – but isn’t she DEAD?! Norman Osborn has worked his way into a position of power in Symkaria, and any incursion by Spider-Man will be seen as an act of war.

Featuring art by series artist Valerio Schiti and special guest artists to celebrate the end of an era! (S) Brian Michael Bendis (A) Valerio Schiti, Various (CA) Arthur Adams

Smurfs Take>  The End and will the Guardians ever be the same again? I have loved the run the Guardians have been on and sad to see Bendis call it closed. How will it finish? Are all the loose ends going to be pulled together in a nice tight bow? Can we hope the team will get off Earth?

Trade Paperback of the week

The next chapter of the X-Men’s saga starts here! (W) Marc Guggenheim (A) Ken Lashley, Leonard Kirk, Ibraim Roberson (CA) Ardian Syaf

Smurfs Take> With the talk about Marvel returning things back for Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, and the rest of the Marvel U I can only hope this is the same for the X-Men and this is where it starts. I said the other day the X-fans are the ones to blame for the current state of the X-Men. What I wouldn’t do for an old school 80’s X-Team and maybe this is it? Maybe a little confusing on who’s who right now and from what time and dimension
