I'd like to think that we don't need any more, "and then two teams fight each other, one at a time" stories in comics.

Ultimate X #1

Older comic fans will come running at the sight of Arthur Adams' name on the cover. Heck, I could be listed as writer and comic fans would still buy it just for the Arthur Adams drawings.

Invincible Iron Man #23

Tony Stark does a great job trying to convince himself (and us) that he is Iron Man. Unfortunately, he never dons the armor in this issue. That doesn't mean this is a lost cause though.

Fantastic Four #575

Marvel's house ads for this issue show an image of a decomposing Galactus. That's in here, but not in the way you think. Or maybe it is exactly the way you think. At any rate, Mole Man makes an appearance too.
