Picks of the Week

Captain America #1

Bestselling Cap writer Ed Brubaker and superstar artist Steve McNiven bring you the next huge chapter in Steve Rogers life, and it's a perfect jumping-on point for fans of the Cap movie. A funeral for a fallen friend turns into a race against time as the original Captain America makes his explosive return!

X-Men Schism #1 (of 5)
The X-Men event of the decade starts here!  It's never been a more dangerous time to be a mutant. Even with their numbers at a record low, the world refuses to trust mutantkind...and after a mutant-triggered international incident, anti-mutant hatred hits new heights. Of course it's at this moment, when the mutant race needs most to stand together, that a split begins that will tear apart the very foundation of the X-Men. From superstar writer and Marvel Architect Jason Aaron and a full roster of comics' top artists, this is an X-tale that will reverberate for years to come!

The Red Wing #1 (of 4)

To stay alive in the future, the best fighter pilots in the world not only have to perfect their skills and master their aircraft, they also have to know how to travel through time. Brought to you by award winning writer Jonathan Hickman and possibly the best new talent of the year, NICK PITARRA, the Red Wing is the story of the greatest battle in the history of the history of three worlds.

Lloyd's Pick of the Month


Find out exactly how Iron Man's deadliest nemesis came to be. A tale from the early days of the Marvel Universe, this saga contains secrets never-before-revealed of the first-ever meeting between the Golden Avenger and the global terrorist known only as the Mandarin! What really happened during that first encounter? Even if you've read the original comics (TALES OF SUSPENSE #50 – 55), you only know HALF of the story! Collecting IRON MAN: ENTER THE MANDARIN #1-6.

This is a retro retelling of Iron Man’s first encounter with the Mandarin.  I love (almost) all things retro. Just the feel of it!  Iron Man being one of my favorites, this story rocks, & it features early rogues and a classic east vs. west story.  I want this in IRON MAN 3.
