    Marvel’s own Milwaukee-based Misfits are back—in their very own, double sized X-mas special! Sure, they survived the GLA mini-series, but can Squirrel Girl, Mr. Immortal, and pals survive… the HOLIDAYS?!? 6 all-new features of mockery, morbidity, and merriment-- including the return of Grasshopper, Deathurge… and the Yuletide tyranny of Dr. Tannenbaum?! By Dan Slott (GLA), Georges Jeanty (Gambit), Paul Grist (Jack Staff), Mike Kazaleh (Ren & Stimpy), and special guest, Mike Wieringo (Friendly Neighborhood something-or-other).

    Publisher:
    Marvel
    Writer: Ed Brubaker
    Artist: Pablo Raimondi

    Fleeing his homeland, Victor Von Doom arrives at college in the United States, his education paid for by the U.S. Government, who sees in Victor a mind that could give them the edge in the Cold War.

    But Victor is determined to use this opportunity to further his own destiny and obsessions, his benefactor’s wishes be damned. If only these other meddling fools, such as Reed Richards and his loutish friend Ben Grimm would get out of his way, Victor knows the secrets of the world and its untouchable realms will be his for the taking.

    SON OF M #1 (of 6)

    Publisher:
    Marvel
    Writer: David Hine
    Artist: Roy Allan Martinez

    All he wanted was to make the world a perfect place for mutantkind, but now Quicksilver finds he has lost it all in Son of M #1. Once the fastest man on Earth, Quicksilver now finds himself powerless in the aftermath of the House of M. How far is he willing to go to get his powers back? Who will he betray next? And what will the cost be for this betrayal? The answers will shock you and change the face of the Marvel Universe forever.

    As if this wasn’t enough, one of the victims of Quicksilver’s actions in House of M comes seeking answers, and retribution. Still reeling from the memories of the life he wishes he could forget, Spider-Man shows up to confront a very human Pietro for the horror that was visited upon Peter Parker in the House of M. One thing is for sure: it will get ugly.

    Don’t miss this Decimation tie-in, which is guaranteed to have long-lasting ramifications for the entire Marvel Universe and a new status quo for Quicksilver himself.

    BONUS: A key player from HOUSE OF M will play a major roll in X-FACTOR! (No, it’s not Wolverine—sigh)

    DMZ #2

    Publisher:
    DC/Vertigo
    Writer: Brian Wood
    Artist: Riccardo Burchielli

    The hot new series from indie comics icon Brian Wood (Demo, Channel Zero, GLOBAL FREQUENCY) and up-and-coming Italian artist Riccardo Burchielli (John Doe) continues. With the horrors of the previous day's events still resonating in his head, Zee takes Matty on a walking tour of war-torn Manhattan, where he sees both the tragedy and triumph of daily life in the DMZ. However, the experience is short-lived as Matty gets his first news "scoop" — one that may ultimately silence this rogue reporter.

    DC/Wildstorm
    Writer: Will Pfeifer
    Artist: Giuseppe Camuncoli

    With nowhere to go and no one to turn to, Captain Atom looks for help from the U.S. government. Surely the President of the United States does not fear super-powered beings! Will Nikola be able to help him before the Wildcats attack? And, most urgently, before the Void shard within him begins a devastating chain reaction? Don't miss the third chapter of the cataclysmic series!

    Man, I can't wait for X-Factor. :D 

    By the way, that preview isn't for Uncanny X-Men #467, it's for X-Men #179.

    Damn it, not Rictor... What a way to start X-Factor.

    And I think I'll read Son of M. I've had a soft spot for Quicksilver, and though I was pissed when I found out he was responsible for House of M and M-Day, I feel sorry for him.

    Nothing. I was lamenting the fact that he's another depowered mutant I like.

    ...maybe I should have been clearer.

    X-factor and Son of M look awesome. As for MK Spiderman, I guess MJ gets wolverine's healing factor too. Also, everyone looks like they're sleepy, not sad. It sucks that now that the title is really going to take off with some fantastic writing, every other-other issue is still going to be bogged down by Lee's craptacular art.
