There’s a new inhuman in the Marvel Universe. The guy’s name is Ulysses, and he has quite a power: it appears he can predict the future. Captain Marvel wants to use this ability to prevent tragedies and crimes from occurring. Iron Man, however, thinks it’s wrong to take action against someone before they’ve committed a crime – or maybe even before they’ve thought of it. Now, Ulysses had a vision of the Hulk lashing out. With Civil War II #3, Captain Marvel, Iron Man, and many other heroes visit Bruce Banner to talk about the violent vision Ulysses had about the Green Goliath. But when all is said and done, one character is no longer alive.
The best day of the year is almost here! Midtown Comics is thrilled to celebrate yet another edition of Free Comic Book Day, both in-store on Saturday, May 7th, and online on Monday, 9th! All of the FCBD titles from every participating publisher will be offered for free, with no purchase required, in-store and online while supplies last. We’ll also have special Midtown-branded editions of two FCBD Marvel and DC Comics – read on for more info on those exclusives!

The Wicked + The Divineby Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie is the best comic you aren’t reading yet. And if you’re already reading it, you know why everybody else should be. The series focuses on a pantheon of twelve gods that are brought together every ninety years, blessed with supernatural abilities and incredible fame. However, the glory comes at a steep price; they die after two years. And once again, they return, to start the cycle for a new generation. As the young Laura finds herself roped into this world of intrigue and glamor, she finds that not all gods are good and that fame isn’t everything you want it to be. Oh, and did I mention that the gods are based on pop culture icons such as Rihanna, Kanye West, Daft Punk, David Bowie, and Prince? Now we’re talking.
