Since the death of Captain America, his former sidekick Bucky Barnes (now known as the Winter Soldier) has sought to honor his memory—but first he’s gotta survive! In Captain America #30, the next stunning issue in this Eisner Nominated (for “Best Continuing Series”) and Eisner Winning (“Best Writer”) series pits Winter Soldier against a Mighty Avenger, against the sinister Crossbones and against himself! Writer Ed Brubaker and artists Steve Epting & Mike Perkins conclude the top-selling and critically acclaimed “Death of Captain America ” story with a bang that will affect everyone close to Cap…and leave your jaw on the floor!

Critics continue to rave about Captain America, with IGN.Com’s Richard George deeming the series a must-read and exclaiming that the series “continues to be one of the best espionage/action books on the market.”

“This series continues to rock the house,” gushed Kevin Powers of SilverBulletComicBooks.Com. “Mike Perkins and Steve Epting continue to deliver some of the finest artwork around.”

It’s the Winter Soldier’s toughest battle yet and it’s all leading up to the senses-shattering Captain America #33, which will leave the Marvel Universe a much different place! And you can’t miss the confrontation you’ve all demanded: Red Skull versus Winter Soldier!

Image Penance: Relentless #1:
From the pages of Civil War, Robbie Baldwin, the man blamed for the Stamford tragedy, has assumed the guise of Penance and it’s time for him to embark on a quest of redemption in Penance: Relentless #1 (of 5). From Civil War: Front Line scribe Paul Jenkins and fan favorite artist Paul Gulacy comes this tale of one man’s slow descent into madness, obsession and perhaps the end of life as he knows it! When Penance takes one of the Thunderbolts’ missions into his own hands he puts himself on a collision course with Norman Osborn—better known as the Green Goblin—and it’s a battle of wills that will leave one man defeated!

He’s the most hated man in America must now face off against possibly the most dangerous team in America, as Penance experiences visions leading him on a mission of life or death! What do the numbers in his visions mean? This fall, Penance: Relentless #1 (of 5) puts Robbie Baldwin on a path that will leave him forever changed!

Image X-Men: Emperor Vulcan #1:
The mutant known as Vulcan (and brother to X-Men veterans Cyclops and Havok) has conquered the Shi’ar empire and ascended the throne, but he’ll find his reign challenged in X-Men: Emperor Vulcan #1 (of 5)! Written by Christopher Yost (New X-Men) and penciled by Paco Diaz, with covers by “Young Gun” Billy Tan, this all-new, all-different limited series pits the new Starjammers, led by Havok, against his brother’s Shi’ar forces in an intergalactic clash of titans! But as both sides delve deeper into this conflict, each must question their positions. Is Vulcan really the savior of the Shi’ar? Do the X-Men, now aligned with the Starjammers, truly belong in this battle? And can Vulcan be stopped after already defeating the X-Men once before?

During the acclaimed “Rise & Fall Of The Shi’ar Empire” storyline, Havok and his team of X-Men vowed to stop his rogue brother from destroying the lives of billions. But as the group of renegades prepares for the final confrontation with an entire empire, they must also confront their own personal demons if they hope to survive on the battlefield. Meanwhile, Vulcan’s quest for domination continues and we’ll see just how things have changed during his reign!

This fall, the intergalactic tension just got ratcheted up to 11…and two brothers are on a crash course with destiny! But when X-Men: Emperor Vulcan is said and done, will Havok and Vulcan still be enemies? Of course, that’s assuming they survive!

And don’t miss Uncanny X-Men: Rise & Fall Of The Shi’ar Empire HC, by Eisner-Winning “Best Writer” Ed Brubaker, which shows just how Vulcan took control…and what the X-Men sacrificed in their battle against him!

Image X-Factor #23:
X-Factor Investigations faces dangers from all sides and in X-Factor #23, it’s about to get worse for this team of private investigators! Written by the acclaimed Peter David and featuring the lush pencils of Pablo Raimondi, the penultimate chapter of “The Isolationist” answers the question on the minds of fans since last issue’s shocking final page: is Layla Miller going to survive? Unfortunately for her, that answer hinges on the decision of a special guest-star who would like nothing more than to see her dead—and now it may happen! Meanwhile, the X-Men pay X-Factor a visit, but the last time they met it didn’t end well. Why are the X-Men back? And what does it mean for X-Factor? One thing’s for sure—it all leading up to this fall’s massive Messiah Complex event!

This issue also includes the next thrilling chapter of the acclaimed Endangered Species storyline, as Beast seeks to keep mutantkind from disappearing. So when he enlists the aid of Forge and his futuristic technology, the Beast hopes to bring about a better future…but that may not be possible!

Luke Paton of SilverBulletComics.Com gushed that X-Factor is a, “a success from start to finish” and added, “Endangered Species itself is greatly enjoyable.”

Image Thor #3:
Because you demanded it, the God of Thunder battles the Armored Avenger in Thor #3! Following the first two sold-out issues of this brand new series, acclaimed scribe JMS and red-hot penciler Olivier Coipel bring you the much demanded confrontation between Thor and Iron Man, raising the stakes for both heroes! During Civil War, Tony Stark and his allies produced a deadly clone of Thor, which not only ravaged many heroes, but killed the Avenger known as Goliath. Now that Thor has returned in earnest, it’s time for a reckoning with his former teammate and that means all out action! Featuring two covers—one by Copiel and one by superstar Ed McGuinness—and a confrontation that will move heaven, earth and Asgard, this is the issue of Thor you can’t miss!

“The landscape of the Marvel Universe has changed radically in the past few years, and Thor now returns to a post-civil War environment which has seen hero face off against hero, registration become law, and is, all in all, a remarkably different America from the one that he left,” explained series editor Warren Simons. “His first encounter with Iron Man is going to address some of these points, especially the question of what happens when you take a God’s genetic code without his permission.”

Image Critics and fans alike continue to praise this electrifying new series, with Brent Specher of SilverBulletComics.Com gushing, “J. Michael Straczynski is an excellent storyteller… Coipel infuses energy into every scene.”

With the first two issues selling out almost immediately, Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Thor #3.

Image Captain America : The Chosen #1:
David Morrell, New York Times best-selling novelist, creator of Rambo and winner of the 2007 Inkpot Award, takes on the Sentinel of Liberty in Captain America : The Chosen #1 (of 6). Following in the tradition of the sold-out and critically acclaimed Spider-Man: Reign and Silver Surfer: Requiem, this brand new Marvel Knights series chronicles the final days of Captain America as he searches for a successor. Illustrated by fan favorite Mitch Breitweiser (Drax), Captain America: The Chosen offers a unique look at just how the world is affected by Captain America ’s existence.

“Bestselling novelist David Morrell and the extremely talented Mitch Breitweiser have teamed up to bring their remarkable sensibilities to Captain America, in a life-or-death story set in the all-too-real theatre of overseas combat,” explained series editor Alejandro Arbona. “This is no plain super hero romp – ‘The Chosen’ brings Cap back to his roots as an extremely powerful icon and an inspiring embodiment of the virtues he stands for: courage, honor, loyalty and sacrifice.”

ImageWith the re-envisioned Marvel Knights imprint red hot on the sales charts and a hit with critics, Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Captain America : The Chosen #1. This fall, prepare to experience a Captain America story like no other—and learn just who Steve Rogers chooses to carry on his legacy!
