Creepy Arkham style series Ravencroft hits it’s second issue and Black Cat Strike issue #2 is on the shelves.

Captain Marvel #15 sees the good Captain running out of time to kill 5 Avengers, and Savage Avengers gets an issue 0 with some classic reprint material as well as an issue #10 by regular team Gerry Duggan and Patch Zircher. Captain America #19 is just one title that has Gwen Stacy variants this month, there’s a whole bunch of them for you to collect if you have an incredible amount of disposable income, Jason Aaron gives us a double-sized issue of Avengers this month. The Temptation Of Anthony Stark is a dark tale in the 31st issue. Aero #8 by Zhou Liefen and Any Chu and Sword Masters #8 are from the Marvel Heroes imprint. Runaways #30 continues the biggest adventure of the team yet, and #Daredevil #17 and #18 will both be available this month as war breaks out in Hells’ Kitchen, the area in New York, not Gordon Ramsay’s TV show, although I would watch that.
Looks like Wolverine #1 will be the big-ticket this month — look for those hidden variants!
