I am Groot:
Mother Entropy’s final test involves, what else, a no-holds-barred brawl at Starlin’s Bar. But this is a battle like no other the Guardians have ever fought. Guardians of the Galaxy Mother Entropy #3 (of 5) is by writer Jim Starlin, with art and cover by Alan Davis! After a distracting run-in with Ronan, the Guardians just want to get back on track and find the Cosmic Seed before Thanos gets his hands on it! But a chance encounter with Thor will throw the group way off track!

Jubilee Lee leads the way:
The Xavier Institute for Mutant Education and Outreach has opened its doors and is ready to foster the next generation of heroes and diplomats! But this time around, the X-Men recognize an unfortunate truth: not all mutants are created equal. Some mutants are not made to fight Sentinels or serve as ambassadors on behalf of their kind. Who better to mentor mutantkind’s lovable losers than perpetual sidekick Jubilee? Generation X #1 is by writer Christina Strain and artist Amilcar Pinna, with a cover by Terry Dodson!

Luke Cage’s sweet new comic:
Dr. Noah Burstein, the man who made Luke Cage into the unbreakable hero he is today, is dead. When Luke goes down to New Orleans for the funeral, he finds The Big Easy to be pretty difficult! There’s mysterious billionaires, a woman with a secret, amped-up gangs and a shadowy figure! Luke Cage #1 is by writer David Walker and artist Nelson Blake, with a cover by Rahzzah!

Rob Liefeld returns to the Merc with a Mouth:
It’s Deadpool’s first Original Graphic Novel! Wade Wilson’s made a lot of enemies. One he can’t quite place is the brutal Thumper, who keeps showing up out of the blue to pound him into jelly. What is Deadpool’s past connection to this beefy face-masher? Deadpool Bad Blood is by Rob Liefeld, Chris Sims, and Chad Bower!

The Dark Knight and the Scarlet Speedster:
It’s part four of The Button, a can’t-miss follow-up to the big mystery established in the epic Rebirth one-shot! Can The Flash and Batman – the two greatest detective minds in the DC Universe – solve the mystery of the blood-stained button? The Flash #22 is by writer Joshua Williamson and artist Neil Googe, with a cover by Jason Fabok!

A super and mighty crossover:
Superman is determined to help the Power Rangers return to their dimension before the teens learn the pain of losing their entire planet. Billy and Cyborg have a plan that could save the day, but it seems impossible-unless there’s a Large Hadron Collider available? Justice League Power Rangers #4 is by writer Tom Taylor and artist Stephen Byrne, with a cover by Karl Kerschl!

Supergirl takes on Cyborg Superman:
Supergirl moves to National City! As Kara Danvers, high school student, Supergirl must balance her life as a superhero with her new life on Earth. But some demons from her Kryptonian past are coming back to haunt her, and Kara will find herself face to face with her father, the sinister Cyborg Superman! Supergirl Vol 1 collects Supergirl: Rebirth and Supergirl #1-6 by writer Steve Orlando and artist Bing Ching and more, with a cover by Emanuela Lupacchino!

Incredible Image Comics issues:

Join Gwen, Daphne, and Rita as they reunite for a pulse-pounding psychedelic adventure through the streets of Freak City. This first issue is stuffed to the gills with an action-packed story, bonus art, soundtrack, sketchbook, and a behind-the-scenes comic thingy. Grrl Scouts Magic Socks #1 is by writer, artist, and cover artist Jim Mahfood! Thragg’s New Viltrumite stronghold is under attack! Invincible and the Coalition of Planets have decided to take the fight right to the source-resulting in the bloodiest battle thus far! Invincible #136 is by writer Robert Kirkman and artist Ryan Ottley!

Believe it,
G-Man and Gregg!
