They also take a look at Marvel’s recently announced post Secret Wars series and the future of the Marvel Universe. It’s not too late yet to say goodbye.

There are undoubtedly spoilers to be found within these writeups, but the same spoilers will be readily available to anyone with access to a comic store and $0 on this coming Saturday, Free Comic Book Day (!) .
But if you’re unsure what book should be top priority, which ones are safe for kids, or what you’d be getting yourself into, take a look at the following reviews. Free Comic Book Day can get a bit intense at the right store, and to be forewarned is to be forearmed.
It’s that time of year again… Marvel is launching their next big event! Ever since the success of House of M and the even greater success of Civil War, the House of ideas has, to varying degrees of success, launched a line-wide event each year. And while they can’t all be smash-hits (I’m looking at you, Shadowland and Chaos War) they all at least start off big and shake things up a bit in the year following. Howver, since House of M all of the major events have more or less been one grand continuing story… and don’t get too excited, I’m not implying that they’re a glorious epic with a magnificent scope. I’m just saying that they don’t actually end… they trickle off into “Aftermath” series, which eventually lead back into the next year’s event. It appears, however, that with Bendis off of the Avengers books, that’s come to an end.
I may not have a full understanding of the plot unleashed on Jonathan Hickman’s first issue of East Of West but I know that I love it. It’s a book about an alternate history of America and the world…it’s dark but thanks to artist, Nick Dragotta it looks beautiful.
