Jules: Ultimate FF #2
Picking up the pieces as the Ultimate Universe is in disarray! New Jersey was destroyed by Galactus. S.H.I.E.L.D. was disassembled thanks to law suits. The original Ultimates have called it a day with a teen squad taking their place. The FF now are all that stands between destruction and the world. Iron Man, Falcon, Invisible Woman, Machine Man, and Doom?…. Yes this title is going in all the right places already. A kick in the pants the Ultimate Universe has needed for quite sometime! I’m picking it up and I’m hoping you do too!

Taylor: Thor: God of Thunder #22
Maintaining its position as the king of my pull list, Thor: God of Thunder hits the shelves this week. This issue comes at a key point for both of our parallel story arches, as we now move on to the fallout of both Roxxon’s nefarious takeover and King Thor’s bout with Galactus. This title continues to impress month after month, and I have no reason to doubt that this issue will deliver as well.

Christian: Futures End #3
I know what you’re all thinking but yes I have a pick of the week. Futures end has been pretty interesting for me as a DC fan, and I’m hoping in this issue to see Terry finding out more about Brother Eye and how to stop this world changing event from ever happening. Hopefully we get all more action in this issue to balance out the death of a beloved archer.

Did Firestorm kill a member of the Justice League? Who is watching Batman Beyond? And why is Frankenstein living in an igloo?!
Gaumer: Forever Evil #7
Wait! What is that? It can’t be. I thought it was a myth, like Watchmen 2, or that Stan Lee is an actual LMD, but it’s happening. Forever Evil is finally wrapping up, and it’s about time. Delayed for at least 2 months, and subsequently throwing off the launch schedule of a huge part of the DC line, I’m still excited to see how they wrap this whole thing up. I DO have to go back and re-read the previous issues for a refresher, but I’m hoping that’s the worst part of this great, albeit really late, event.
