Marvel Comics has released previews of comics shipping on 7/5/06, including "Incredible Hulk" and "Marvel Westerns: Kid Colt And The Arizona Girl."

From the King Jack Kirby, the hot writing team Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray (Hex, Heroes for Hire), and others comes wild adventures from the Wild West in Marvel Westerns: Kid Colt and the Arizona Girl.

Back when America was in its infancy, outlaws and Native Americans ruled the western territories. But it was gunfighters with a reputation for shooting first and asking questions later, like Kid Colt and the Arizona Girl, who made their marks in the Wild West.

In Marvel Westerns: Kid Colt and the Arizona Colt, Annie and the Kid embark on another adventure, this time taking on a dangerous job escorting a stage coach through Apache territory in a story by Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray, and Federica Manfredi.

But their job takes a strange turn when they come across a bizarre town. It's not long before bullets are flying and Kid Colt and the Arizona Girl find themselves taking on an entire town with their ammunition running low.

Plus, Marvel Westerns: Kid Colt and the Arizona Colt features the introduction of the woman who looked to tame the Wild West, one engraved invitation at a time – the Philadelphia Philly. In this 8 page story by Jim McCann (Marvel Previews, Eternals Sketchbook, Civil War Opening Shot) and David Williams, the Philadelphia Philly encounters the man called Spender; a man who lost everything, including his name, and is all the more dangerous as a result.

Featuring a cover by Eisner Award-winner Eric Powell, Marvel Westerns: Kid Colt and the Arizona Girl also re-presents three classic Marvel Western tales by comic legends including Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers.

For five tales of Marvel Western action, adventure, and even Apaches, pick up Marvel Westerns: Kid Colt and the Arizona Girl for one of the wildest comic experiences of the year.

In Incredible Hulk #96, the Hulk finds out the hard way that anarchy reigns supreme on the alien world he finds himself stranded on.

In Part 1 of Planet Hulk: Anarchy, the Jade Giant is on the run from the Imperial Army with his crew of Warbound escapees. But now that they have escaped the Great Arena, how will they exact retribution on the Red King and his followers?

Plus, Miek's past comes back to haunt him. But what does the horrifying truth about Miek's former life mean for his new one as a member of the Green Scar's Warbound crew?

As Planet Hulk steamrolls on, it continues to strike a chord with fans and critics. Richard George of IGN.com says, "Pak is proving that he has crafted one of the greatest tales in the Hulk's history… This is definitely one of the Marvel highlights right now. It's just too fun to pass up. A must read."

In the first act of the Planet Hulk epic, Planet Hulk: Exile, the Hulk was betrayed by those he thought were his friends and he ended up in captivity on an alien world. Last issue, the Hulk and his fellow prisoners were freed by the Silver Savage, but as they turn their might on those imprisoned them, will they know the difference between justice and revenge?

Pick up Incredible Hulk #96, a perfect jumping on point for the Greg Pak-penned epic, as Planet Hulk: Anarchy kicks off in the only manner a Hulk classic can: smashingly.
