JESSICA RUFFNER

PENCILS: RON LIM

THE STORY:

Things keep getting worse for Laurell K. Hamilton's deadly vampire hunter as one of her allies in the hunt for the vampire killer is murdered! But vampire bites, ominous dreams, and persistent sociopaths won't slow Anita down as she takes matters into her own hands and learns the truth about the mystery that's been plaguing her: the identity of the perpetrator of the brutal and unlicensed slayings of "innocent" vampire citizens! Of course, having that knowledge doesn't mean she'll live long enough to share it! The adaptation of the best-selling novel continues here!

CLANDESTINE #3

COVER BY: ALAN DAVIS

WRITER: ALAN DAVIS

PENCILS: ALAN DAVIS

INKS: MARK FARMER

LETTERED BY: DAVE LANPHEAR

THE STORY:

Guest-starring the time-lost Excalibur! Anybody who loved Alan Davis's classic run on that series in the '90s will want to jump on board, because the Cross-Time Express is making its way through the dimension Newton Destine calls home, and it's bringing with it a trainload of trouble along with it!

MOON KNIGHT #17

COVER BY: ARTHUR SUYDAM

WRITER: MIKE BENSON

CHARLIE HUSTON

INKS: MARK TEXEIRA

COLORED BY: DAN BROWN

LETTERED BY: VC - JOE CARAMAGNA

THE STORY:

"GOD AND COUNTRY," PART 4

In the age of the Superhuman Registration Act, the only good hero is one that plays by the book -- which the card-carrying Moon Knight most assuredly does not. Indeed, with Moon Knight fast becoming the poster child for recklessness and brutality, the question of the day is just how he got a Registration Card in the first place! As Tony Stark's investigation unearths the ugly truth, Marc Spector braces himself for the consequences, unaware that an equally grave threat is preparing to strike. Carson Knowles -- a.k.a. the Black Spectre -- is back and he wants payback.

Parental Advisory …$2.99

NEW EXILES #4
COVER BY: MICHAEL GOLDEN

WRITER: CHRIS CLAREMONT

PENCILS: TOM GRUMMETT

INKS: SCOTT HANNA

COLORED BY: WIL QUINTANA

LETTERED BY: TOM ORZECHOWSKI

THE STORY:

Double the alternate reality action this month as two issues of New Exiles bring us two tales from two different universes! First, in issue 4, Sabretooth, Psylocke, Rogue, and new ally Gambit are caught in the middle of a war between the Atlanteans, Queen Ororo, and the Black Panther. Plus, whatever happened to Mystiq? Find out in the conclusion to the series' first arc! Then, in issue 5, a new tale begins as we see the trouble Morph, Sage, and Cat run across in a world of royalty and dragons!

Reality-hopping action as only the New Exiles can deliver!

LETTERED BY: FAREL DALRYMPLE

THE STORY:

You know a super hero's in trouble when he resorts to drawing a comic book to try to solve his problems! Omega The Unknown #7, on top of the usual stellar array of talent, features special guest-star creator Gary Panter, known for his work on a legendary children's show, Frank Zappa's album covers, and RAW Magazine -- but he's never been between Marvel's covers before. Tune in!

RAY HEIGHT

LETTERED BY: NATE PIEKOS

THE STORY:

So, have you ever noticed that Peter Parker never really grows facial hair? That's just this side of weird, right? We felt sorry for the wall–crawler, so we went and got him a special guest star, THE INVINCIBLE IRON MAN!!!!!! Because I think we can all agree that Tony Stark's got the sweetest facial hair in all of Marvel Comics. Oh! And they fight a Nazi robot.

PLUS…Spidey vs. Iceman! Spider-Man J! And a TON of classic Spidey stories!

Rated A …$4.99
