Finally, celebrate the historic 200th issue of What If? Since debuting in 1977, What If? has become a corner staple in the Marvel Universe by spotlighting “the road not traveled” by many of its heroes & villains as well as the domino effect that the point of divergence creates. What If? 200 offers two titanic tales— the main story is one with a different POV on Siege, “What If Norman Osborn Won the Siege of Asgard?” What if the Sentry didn’t lose control of the Void during battle, allowing for the Siege to ultimately decimate our heroes? With Osborn on top of the world, only one force stands in his way: Doom… and he’s not alone as he rebuilds the Cabal with the X-Men?! By Marc Guggenheim and Dave Wilkins. The second tale is one that will be talked about amongst the multiverse: the murder of Galactus at the hands of…the WATCHER!?! Based on the events in the classic “Coming of Galactus” storyline in ‘The Fantastic Four 48-50,’ this one is written by none other than the scribe of those original stories, Stan “The Man” Lee, himself. Joining him is recent FF artist, Dale Eaglesham. If there is only one back-up story you’ll read this year, true believers, it must be this one!

From the heart of the 1950s comes another dose of horrific monsters, unhinged lunatics, rampaging robots, and outer space invaders—the hallmarks of the explosive Atlas Era! Yes, it’s a new batch of classics from the time when your comics kept you up at night.

So prepare yourself for just a few of the shocks they have in store for you: Werner Roth will find out whether or not you’re made of “Flesh and Blood.” Joe Sinnot sets off the “Danger Signal.” Like it or not, Paul Reinman will discover whether you’re “Man or Beast.” John Romita sets his sights on “The Target.” And Bill Everett reveals “Karnoff’s Plan.” Marvel Masterworks: Atlas Era Strange Tales is a dark trip into the wry and subversive heyday of horror comics that pushed comics hysteria to the breaking point.

MARVEL MASTERWORKS: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN VOL. 13 HC
Written by GERRY CONWAY
Penciled by GIL KANE & ROSS ANDRU with JOHN ROMITA
Cover by JOHN ROMITA SR.
Norman Osborn’s memory has returned. The Green Goblin is back. Gwen Stacy is missing. And it will all lead to a confrontation atop the George Washington Bridge whose aftermath will leave Peter Parker, the Amazing Spider-Man, forever changed. That’s right it’s the—spoiler warning!— death of Gwen Stacy, the story that put a generation into therapy and cemented the Green Goblin’s name as the definition of evil. The Marvel Masterworks present this tragic tale and a host of Spider-Man classics that would come to define the Webspinner’s world for years to come: the debut of Col. John Jameson’s werewolf curse, the Man-Wolf. The beginning of Harry Osborn’s descent into madness and suspicion and a certain green costume. The first appearance of Frank Castle—the Punisher—the maybe-villain, maybe-anti-hero who would rise to become one of Marvel’s most famous characters. Topping it off, there’s first appearance of the nefarious Jackal, the return of the Vulture, Hammerhead, the hilarious Human Torch-built Spider-Mobile, and the shocking wedding of Aunt May and Doctor Octopus! Add to that the debut of fan-favorite Spidey artist Ross Andru and what you have is a Marvel Masterworks! Collecting AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #121-131

The creative team that took the X-Men to their greatest heights—Claremont and Byrne—returns, so why worry, why wait, why not just dive straight into a full-out battle with Magneto! The Master of Magnetism has a score to settle with the students of the Xavier School, and each member of the merry mutants must struggle to hold onto their humanity as their nemesis strips them to their very core. A narrow escape leads them out of the fire, into the frying pan (a.k.a. the Savage Land) where they face Sauron and the immortal Garokk, the Petrified Man. As they refined their uncanny team, Claremont and Byrne began to peel back the layers of mystery behind their increasingly popular hot-headed Canuck, Wolverine. You’ll see his healing factor put on display for the first time, meet Mariko, a woman who seems to know the details of his shrouded past, and learn that he has a name, an enigmatic name—“Logan.” Meanwhile, thinking her teammates killed in their battle with Magneto, Jean Grey heads for Muir Island in the beginning of the storyline that will culminate in the Dark Phoenix Saga! That’s not all, though, there’s one more battle ahead for the X-Men, and it’s against the fan-favorite super team from up north—Alpha Flight!

The Helljumpers get the job done every time. Hoo-rah!

The lone body on the planet’s surface, a communications officer, appears to have died of fright. The discovery of a large Covenant military presence raises more questions than it answers. And when two Helljumpers get cut off from the rest of their squad, they’ll have to battle through impossible odds to make it home. Can the marines uncover the mysteries of Ariel? And if so, can they make it off planet to tell the tale? If not, there’ll be hell to pay! Collecting HALO: HELLJUMPER #1-5.

Written by DANIEL WAY
Penciled by STEVE DILLON
Cover by GARY FRANK
Long ago, Kyle Richmond looked into the face of madness – now, it's looking back at him. As a boy, Richmond – the man who would one day become Nighthawk – witnessed the senseless murder of his parents. There was no reason for their deaths, no provocation – they were just simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. It was a traumatic event that has left him scarred for life – and turned him into a hero more feared than the criminals he polices. Now, it's happening again...but on a much larger scale. The people of Chicago – men, women and children – are dying in the streets, victims of a monster whose thirst for slaughter cannot be quenched, whose soul is a bottomless void and whose scars run even deeper than Nighthawk's. And it's flashing a killer smile. Collecting SUPREME POWER: NIGHTHAWK #1-6.
