That’s why they call him Kingpin:
An Inhuman with the ability to predict the future has helped the heroes of the Marvel Universe clamp down on crime before it can even happen.

Variant covers are by Jamie McKelvie, Esad Ribic, and Skottie Young! Meet Matthew Rosenberg at Midtown on Thursday, July 7!

From robbers to bounty hunters…IN SPACE!
The Gadflies were the most wanted criminals in the galaxy—they’d rob corporations to redistribute wealth to the destitute. Now, with a bounty to match their reputation, the Gadflies are forced to abandon banditry for a career as bounty hunters… ’cause if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em—then rob ’em blind! Check out the debut issue of Bounty from Dark Horse Comics by Kurtis J. Wiebe with art and cover by Mindy Lee.

Image’s New Conspiracy
One is a disposable asset, used for a single mission; the other a disavowed assassin, meant to die alongside their target. Abby Palmer and Dean Logan are two broken people—Abby, a vet with severe PTSD, and Dean, a burnout trying to escape the shadow of his infamous father—when they are thrust into a modern-day MK-ULTRA conspiracy… and discover they are both ULTRA’s human experiments. Don’t miss the killer first issue of Throwaways, from Image Comics, by Caitlin Kittredge with art by Steven Sanders and cover by Maiko Kuzunishi.

Believe it,
G-Man and Gregg!
