Iron Man/Thor (FCBD) #1

Think of it as an early look at Matt Fraction's "Thor" run. Or see it as an introduction to two characters that new readers should have a passing familiarity with already. Either way, it's a hit.

War of the Supermen (FCBD)

As far as free comics go, this one is not bad, but DC set the bar awfully high with last year's "Blackest Night" #0. This is no "Blackest Night."
