Black Widow #1


Official Synopsis: S.H.I.E.L.D.’S MOST WANTED! The Eisner Award-winning team of Mark Waid and Chris Samnee are taking Black Widow on the lam! Natasha has spent years gathering secrets, and when some of the darkest ones begin mysteriously going public, no one is safe. With her betrayed former confederates at S.H.I.E.L.D. on her heels and a lifetime of training and ingenuity at her disposal, Natasha’s out for answers in a knock-down-drag-out tale of action and espionage! Hidden enemies, old friends and unusual allies collide, and all eyes are on Black Widow. The chase is on!

Why You Should Buy This: Black Widow. Mark Waid. Chris Samnee. Literally this much information should make you want to buy this book.

Official Synopsis: Pleasant Hill looks like the perfect small-town community — but underneath the surface, a deadly secret lurks. One so explosive it will draw estranged allies Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson back together to save a friend in danger and put things right. But when the combined might of the Captain Americas isn’t enough, whom do they call? In the face of unspeakable evil, it’s time for the Avengers to Assemble like never before! The blockbuster spring AVENGERS event starts right here!

Why You Should Buy This: The highly prophesied spring Avengers event is finally here. There is nothing left to say.

Mockingbird #1


Official Synopsis: BECAUSE YOU DEMANDED IT! Now in her own ongoing series! Bobbi Morse is Mockingbird, S.H.I.E.L.D.’s most versatile, most in-demand agent! But a string of missions gone wrong indicate that something strange is lurking within S.H.I.E.L.D.’s own medical and recovery network. How far will Mockingbird have to go in order to solve this puzzle box and get to the truth? Bestselling author Chelsea Cain teams with newcomer Kate Niemczyk. less

Why You Should Buy This: I don’t know why I include this section. Do I really need to explain why you should buy a book starring Mockingbird?  

Doctor Strange #6

Official Synopsis: “THE LAST DAYS OF MAGIC” STARTS NOW! The Emperikul have arrived, leaving universes purged of magic in their wake. Their next target? The Marvel Universe. And with Doctor Strange weakened beyond measure? We don’t have a chance!

Why You Should Buy This: I give up. I should change this section to “Why You Shouldn’t Buy This.”
