5/20/2015 Hot Comic Book Releases

Wednesday is here again and some fresh ink has just arrived at your local comic book store. Let’s check out this weeks Hot Comic Book Releases! I know DC Comics is nearing the finish line of its Convergence crossover event with issue #7 out today (along with numerous tie-ins), but it’s also a big week at Marvel with a slew of Secret Wars tie-ins hitting shelves. So, let’s check out 5 must-see Secret Wars tie-ins in this weeks edition of Fresh Picks.


Fresh Picks (the Secret Wars Tie-In Edition):

  • First up in our Secret Wars tie-in round-up is Secret Wars Battleworld #1 (of 4). It features stories from all over the new battleworld1planet, which formed from the remains of various Marvel Universes. Frank Castle, a.k.a. The Punisher, has been possessed by Doctor Strange and is on the run from the law. And by “law” I mean Spider-Man, Wolverine, Hulk, and Ghost Rider! Also, ALL OF THE M.O.D.O.Ks!
  • A-Force #1 tells the story of the new all-female Avengers team lead by She-Hulk, who is also the Baroness of the island kingdom of Arcadia. Her fellow A-Force members (Captain Marvel, Spider-Woman, Medusa, Dazzler (you read that correctly), and others) have to protect their island in the strange new world.
  • Planet Hulk #1 tells the story of a forbidden zone of Battleworld inhabited by wild Hulks (as opposed to tame ones?) and a warrior named Steve Rodgers trying to survive in this land. The odds don’t sound very good.
  • Everyone’s favorite merc with a mouth is back in Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #1 (of 4). Deadpool goes back to become a part of the original 1984 Secret Wars event in true, absolutely insane Deadpool fashion.  
  • Ultimate End #1 explores the final days leading up to the destruction of the Ultimate Universe. Miles Morales and the other Ultimate Marvel heroes fight to the bitter end, but can they survive?
