Cover by MARCELO DICHIARO


The action begins with a feature-length tale starring Spider-Man's alien costume and guest-starring the Sandman! Peter Parker would love nothing more than to get a good night's sleep, but his sleek, symbiotic suit has plans of its own...and no one is gonna get in its way! Next, Venom is back in town, and he's on a rampage...but it has nothing to do with his vendetta against Spidey? What could be so important that Venom doesn't have the time to torture his nemesis? Peter Parker is determined to find out, but first he'll have to match journalistic wits with none other than Eddie Brock! And finally, remember back in the day, when super heroes would fight other super heroes? What? That still happens? Civil...what? Well, ANYway...we're taking you back in time, when Spidey was pretty new at all this super hero stuff, and would make silly mistakes, like, oh, say...knocking out the Invisible Girl! I think her friends might want to have a talk with the web-crawler. Plus: backup stories featuring the Lizard and TWO Scorpions! Collecting SPIDER-MAN FAMILY #1-3

Cover by MARKO DJURDJEVIC


The second big year of award-winning creators Ed Brubaker and Michael Lark's explosive run on DAREDEVIL is here, and if you think Matt Murdock's life is going to start getting simpler, think again!

And now, in the days after the Marvel Civil War, being Daredevil is even more dangerous than it was before Matt got taken down. Can their relationship survive the new obstacles that have been placed in their way? Can 'Blind Love' conquer all? DAREDEVIL #94-99.

The Yakuza's bloodthirsty Sano Orii returns, a genocidal shadow organization appears, and a new-but-old super-powered madman is looking to put the squeeze on White Tiger. Armed with mystical amulets -- and finally in costume -- White Tiger demands answers! But will she survive long enough to ask the right questions? Collecting WHITE TIGER #1-6.
