In 1973 comics’ first African super hero took the headlining slot in an ambitious ongoing series, beginning a 13-issue epic unprecedented in its time. Writer Don McGregor teamed with artists Rich Buckler and Billy Graham to tell “Panther’s Rage,” a story so huge it ranges across the savannah, into the deepest jungles and up to the snow-topped mountains of Wakanda. Over its course McGregor & Co. would define T’Challa, give full depth and life to the Wakandas and their culture, while pitting the Panther against the murderous Erik Killmonger for control of the kingdom. Not one to rest on his laurels, McGregor then set out to raise the bar once again, sending T’Challa to the American South to investigate the murder of Angela Lynne and its connection to the Klan and the history of the Soul Strangler. A challenging storyline by a challenging storyteller, you’ll read it and so much more in this much anticipated hardcover classic!

Cover by ALEX SCHOMBURG

From the heart of the Golden Age of Comics, the white-hot hero of the decade, the Human Torch, comes burning at you with another exciting quartet of never before reprinted comic adventures! Between keeping America safe on the homefront and fighting the Axis powers abroad, the Torch and his kid sidekick Toro have their work cut out for them. They’ll face Nazi rockets, Gestapo madmen, fifth columnists and more as they fight the good fight for the U.S.A. The action really gets going in the massive, 45-page “Death Dance of the Atlantic” when the Torch and Toro find the Sub-Mariner manning a Nazi U-boat. It’s an action-packed dash to capture comics’ most tempestuous sometimes-hero and decode the Axis’ secret signal system, told in the manner that made Marvel great. Backed up by solo Sub-Mariner tales, along with the boy adventurer Jimmy Jupiter and humor shorts by the likes of Basil Wolverton, every issue is a cornucopia from Marvel’s early years. Dig into the Golden Age and dig into history!

Penciled by GREG TOCCHINI & PASCAL ALIXE

Cover by LEINIL FRANCIS YU

It’s the year 1602 — and though there are characters you might think you know, none of them are the same as you remember. There’s a young man named Peter with amazing spider-like abilities — but instead of New York City, he’s a proud resident of the settlement at Roanoke. There’s a group of four adventurers endowed with amazing powers — but instead of a spaceship, they steer a boat. And the rampaging giant known as the Hulk? Well, he’s pretty much the same. Though King James of England might prefer things stay the same, the Earth is in flux — with much of the change occurring across the Atlantic in the New World. Though Sir Nicholas Fury and the super-powered Witchbreed may have disappeared, more and more superhumans are making themselves known — which prompts the king to take drastic measures. Elsewhere, another ruler — Otto Von Doom of Latveria — is taking drastic measures of his own as he mounts an expedition to what he believes to be, quite literally, the ends of the Earth. Along for the ride are the beautiful but deadly Natasha Romanova, the bizarrely powered four who are frightful and a kidnapped playwright by the name of William Shakespeare. But hot on their flying ship’s tails are another super-powered quartet: the Fantastick Four! Collecting MARVEL 1602: NEW WORLD #1-5 and MARVEL 1602: FANTASTICK FOUR #1-5.

Cover by JASON PEARSON

Not so long ago, the Punisher attempting to assassinate the Green Goblin would most likely have been met with ambivalence. But Norman Osborn has decided he prefers suits to green masks and the authoritarian law-enforcement agency H.A.M.M.E.R. to a weapons-enhanced glider. So when Castle put the former super villain in his sites, it wasn’t received quite as well. Since that failed assassination attempt, Osborn has tried to turn the tables on the Punisher. Despite his best efforts, Castle has eluded him to continue his surgical strikes on H.A.M.M.E.R.’s centers of power. With traditional means of bringing in his foe exhausted, Osborn turns to the Hood and his wide-reaching criminal network. Resurrecting 16 super villains killed by extreme vigilantes, he promises the super-powered thugs a second chance at life — if they bring him the head of Frank Castle! Collecting PUNISHER #6-10 and PUNISHER ANNUAL #1.

Fury has a long list of operatives at his disposal. But there’s only one man capable of doing this job right: Wolverine! With razor-sharp claws, unbreakable Adamantium bones and a healing factor that can shrug off wounds that would kill lesser men, Logan seems the perfect match for the Hulk. But in their first encounter, the Hulk shows him the meaning of raw power — by ripping Wolverine in half! Can either man survive this fearsome reckoning? And if so, will they ever be the same again?

Norman Osborn’s violent purges have rid his black-ops squad of all but the most heartless mercenaries — but Songbird, once thought to be among the casualties, has returned for revenge! Taking on a team of the world’s most vile super villains single-handedly is more than most heroes can manage, especially when those killers are funded by the government.

Does Songbird have a fighting chance against such impossible odds? It doesn’t seem likely.

Now, having spent a lifetime trying to distance himself from his murderous past, Wolverine learns the procedures perfected on him have fallen into the hands of a private military contractor that has utilized the Weapon X technology to enhance their team of corporate mercenaries. Investigating the new experiments, Wolverine quickly learns he may be in over his head. While the X-Man was more than prepared to fight a group of ruthless mercenaries, he didn’t count on them all possessing his powers — right down to the claws and healing factor!
