Avengers #684 – $4.99

Writers Mark Waid, Al Ewing, Jim Zub | Artists Joe Bennett, Paco Medina | Cover Mark Brooks (Marvel Comics)

As teased in Part 8 of the “No Surrender” mega-super-all-hands-on-deck Avengers crossover, Hulk is back and he’s… immortal? That would certainly explain why he refuses to stay dead. To celebrate the return of the jade giant, the folks at Marvel are giving us an oversized issue that is sure to contain the explanation of just how the Hulk came back to life and, hopefully, lots and lots of smashing.

Weapon X – $3.99

Writer Greg Pak, Fred Van Lente | Artist Roland Boschi | Cover Eric Canete (Marvel Comics)

In what is a demonstration on how to be the most sadistic villain on the block, Sabretooth used to track down Wolverine every year on his birthday and beat the snot out of him. With Old Man Logan now on the same team as Sabretooth in Weapon X, you’d think things would be different, but this issue promises to see them clash once again on Logan’s special day, so pick it up to see a new take on one of comics’ most bizarre traditions.

Green Lantern: Earth One, Vol. 1 – $24.99

Writers Gabriel Hardman, Corinna Bechko | Artist Gabriel Hardman (DC Comics)

While other Earth One stories have put new spins on the likes of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, they ultimately don’t take things too far from the original concept. Green Lantern: Earth One, however, completely reinvents the Green Lantern mythos from the ground up in the style of Alien and Star Wars.

We’ve already read this volume and thought it was quite great, so check out what we had to say:

Exit Theatre Mode
Mister Miracle #7 – $3.99

Writer Tom King | Artist Mitch Gerads | Cover Nick Derington (DC Comics)

DC’s critical darling dropped quite the bombshell last issue, so now we’re on pins and needles waiting to see how the big twist shapes the remaining six issues of this limited series. Mister Miracle has already proven to be a bold, raw, and intensely personal story that pushes the boundaries of everything we know superhero comics to be, so the real question is… where do we go from here?

Keep reading for Ghostbusters, a new Archie horror series, and more!
