EXILES: DAYS OF THEN & NOW

Written by Mike Raicht, art by various, cover by Francis Tsai.

100 issues after the team was first assembled, the Exiles are launching into an all-new direction in this month's New Exiles, but in this one-shot, the spotlight settles on one piece of unfinished business from their previous run. Quentin Quire's world is facing destruction that, by all rights, should never have happened. Sounds like a job for the Exiles...only they're nowhere to be seen. Now, it's up to Quentin to find the heroes, before his entire planet faces the consequences. Join him on a journey across a Multiverse of worlds saved by the original team in a tribute to the reality hopping series, written by Raicht, the first editor of the original series!

THE NEW EXILES #1

Written by Chris Claremont, pencils by Tom Grummett, cover by Greg Land, variant cover by Michael Golden.

Beginning a new era for the Exiles -- with a new team, and a new mandate, to safeguard the fate and future of the Omniverse. New leader, new members, new worlds, new adversaries. They've barely begun to get to know one another when they're thrust into their first mission -- summoned to a world where the dawn of the historic Marvel Age turns out instead to be a prelude to global catastrophe. Meanwhile, back at the Crystal Palace, Sage struggles with a psychic curse that may well make her the new team's greatest liability.

FOOLKILLER #4

Written by Gregg Hurwitz, art and cover by Lan Medina.

"Fool's Paradise," part 4. Move over Frank Castle, there's a new vigilante in town. The Foolkiller has been brutally introduced to the human joke, and he wants to make sure fools everywhere take note. "A fool thinks himself wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool." Shakespeare said that. He also said, "Hell is empty, and all the devils are here." He was right both times. The devil is here, and he's got his sights set on the Foolkiller. His name is Sickle Moon, and he's not much to look at. But if you've seen him, you're probably dead.

"Long, Cold Dark," part 5. The wild conclusion to the bloodiest Punisher arc yet, as Frank Castle squares off against Barracuda for the final time! It ends here. No rule -- or bone -- will be left unbroken. And only one walks away.
