CAPTAIN MARVEL VOL. 2: COVEN TPB
Written by PETER DAVID


Penciled by IVAN REIS, KYLE HOTZ


Cover by CLAUDIO CASTELLINI


Karl Coven is a serial killer sentenced to die for his crimes, and Rick Jones the star witness in the prosecution's case. Claiming to be an alien not subject to our laws, Coven's argument is dismissed, but he gets the last laugh by promptly returning back to life immediately after his death sentence is executed. When a loophole in the legal system requires Coven to be set free, he comes to the attention of Captain Marvel, who's intrigued by the mysterious figure not only because of his apparent resurrection and immunity to Genis' Cosmic Awareness, but by the peculiarities of the judicial system that let the killer go free. Rather than annihilate Coven, he suggests that they become the law: Coven to be prosecution, and Marvel to be judge.

THUNDERBOLTS VOL. 1: HOW TO LOSE TPB
Written by JOHN ARCUDI


Cover & pencils by FRANCISCO RUIZ VELASCO


It's "Fight Club" Marvel style!


The world of the comic book super-villain is often a glamorous one - filled with wealth, infamy, and great power - until the inevitable defeat at the hands of superheroes! But what about the super-villains who don't even rate the attention of superhero - the second-class villains without hope?


Take a voyeuristic look at a world of bloody fights in abandoned warehouses, the lure of easy money, and the desperate smell of sweaty losers. And if you're trying to reform and walk the straight and narrow path, do you keep slaving away for minimum wage, or make one last grab for fame - by busting heads?
