Another in the group of Dark Reign minis that answers the question “What is up with THAT guy?”. I think the Hood is a cool character, so I appreciate the opportunity to read about him.

Wolverine #72

Mark Millar
Steve McNiven

Some kind of delay, or publishing schedule over-lap or something like that, has caused this to be the last chapter of this story which will appear in the regular Wolverine title.

The Avengers Free Comic Book Day

Brian Bendis
Jim Cheung

This past Saturday , coinciding with the release of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, was Free Comic Book Day 2009. One of Marvel’s offerings was Avengers. This year it is a completely original comic, without any of the usual re-printed or re-purposed materials we have seen in previous years. The comic is simply titled “The Avengers” without specifying which adjective-designated team will actually star in the story.
