    Writers: Kazuo Koike
    Pencils: Goseki Kojima

    The fighting clans of pre-Tokugawa Japan are gathering their arms and are on the move. Classic historical warlords, such as Takeda Shingen, Oda Nobunaga, and a young Ieyasu Tokugawa himself take the field in this quasi-historical graphic novel series, Path of the Assassin.

First, a couple of eerie and mysterious ninja try to take his life, but find themselves foiled by the increasingly able ninja Hattori Hanzo. And then a nation's tribes face off and spin through intrigue and tactical webworks, all while fascinatingly dark ninja politics weave subtext and sexy action throughout the masterly drafted pages.

    In the age of the Superhuman Registration Act, the only good hero is one that plays by the book -- which the card-carrying Moon Knight most assuredly does not. Indeed, with Moon Knight fast becoming the poster child for recklessness and brutality, the question of the day is just how he got a Registration Card in the first place! As Tony Stark's investigation unearths the ugly truth, Marc Spector braces himself for the consequences, unaware that an equally grave threat is preparing to strike. Carson Knowles -- a.k.a. the Black Spectre -- is back and he wants payback.

    So, have you ever noticed that Peter Parker never really grows facial hair? That’s just this side of weird, right? We felt sorry for the wall–crawler, so we went and got him a special guest star, THE INVINCIBLE IRON MAN!!!!!! Because I think we can all agree that Tony Stark’s got the sweetest facial hair in all of Marvel Comics. Oh! And they fight a Nazi robot.

    PLUS…Spidey vs. Iceman! Spider-Man J! And a TON of classic Spidey stories!

    "THE CUTTER", Part 1 of 5
    Warren Ellis introduces you to the sultry Anna Mercury in this all-new color series! Dancing amid the spires of a city called New Ataraxia, there is a woman who can cloud men's minds, leap across buildings as if weightless, unerringly fire twin automatic pistols in the most insane conditions, and disappear in a crowded room. She fights against the political repression of an insane technocratic society, and she comes from a place that no-one in New Ataraxia has ever heard of. And she's got one hour to save the city from itself.

    A high-octane blend of The Shadow, Tomb Raider, retropunk science fiction and 21st century Weird Pulp Action, ANNA MERCURY is a headlong adventure serial about a beautiful and mysterious spy-adventurer who is not what she seems.... Anna Mercury will be a series of mini-series, starting with this five issue color series that features art by all-new talent Facundo Percio.

    This issue is available with a regular cover by Paul Duffield, a wraparound by Juan Jose Ryp, a Painted cover by artist Felipe Massafera, and also a rare 1-in-15 Design Sketch Edition featuring the initial character designs by Ryp.
