WOLVERINE #4
Written by JASON AARON
Penciled by RENATO GUEDES
Demonically-possessed Wolverine vs. Colossus. What more do you need? How about Mystique and the Ghost Riders and Sabretooth and the devil wielding a really big sword, not to mention a shocking appearance by a figure from Logan’s past that no one’s expecting, least of all Logan himself. All of this as Wolverine’s epic descent into hell rolls on.

WOLVERINE: THE BEST THERE IS #1
Written by CHARLIE HUSTON
Penciled by JUAN JOSE RYP
“Contagion, Part One: Impulsion & Whim,” PART 1 OF 6
When Wolverine faces a problem of the villainous kind there’s a good chance that he’ll use his Adamantium claws to whip up a lethal solution to it. What happens, though, when he faces an opponent who becomes a much bigger problem if he’s killed? Enter: Contagion, a bold new addition to Wolverine’s rogue’s gallery. But first, Logan must contend with Contagion’s defenders, the aptly named crew known as the Unkillables.

X-MEN #6
Written by VICTOR GISCHLER
Penciled by PACO MEDINA
“CURSE OF THE MUTANTS,” conclusion!
Somehow, the X-Men have weathered the vampire raid on Utopia, but mutants can’t claim total victory yet. Jubilee still needs the X-Men’s help, and Xarus still commands an overwhelming force of bloodsuckers. Will Dracula’s intervention be the final nail in Xarus’s coffin…or will he make even more trouble for the X-Men than his upstart son ever could?

UNCANNY X-FORCE #3
Written by RICK REMENDER
Pencils by JEROME OPEÑA
“THE APOCAYLPSE SOLUTION,” PART 3
Uncanny X-Force versus Apocalypse’s Last Horsemen to the death! With their target within striking distance the team separate in hopes that one of them might infiltrate the Akkaba stronghold and assassinate Apocalypse. However, breaking apart has left them vulnerable, and one member pays a heavy toll for the strategy. Will a member of the team die to stop Apocalypse? Or will the price be heavier still?

UNCANNY X-MEN #531
Written by MATT FRACTION & KIERON GILLEN
Pencils & Cover by GREG Land “Quarantine”
The X-Men on Utopia are getting sicker and sicker and their powers are shutting down one-by-one. Wolverine’s healing factor is down and he’s suffering adamantium poisoning, but he’s much better off than the mutants whose mutation defines their bodies, like Rockslide and Mercury. And if that weren’t bad enough, The Collective Man has Chinatown in the palms of his many hands and the Sublime Corporation is kicking the plan they’ve been hatching since #515 into high gear!

NEW AVENGERS #7
Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS
Pencils & Cover by STUART IMMONEN
After the devastating fallout of last issue’s fatal battle for this dimension, the New Avengers have to figure out who really belongs on the team. Plus, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones need a nanny, and not just any nanny, they need to find a superpowered nanny. Who. Will. It. Be?! Plus: another illustrated chapter of the oral history of the Avengers!

DAKEN: DARK WOLVERINE #4
Written by MARJORIE LIU & DANIEL WAY
Pencils & Cover by GIUSEPPE CAMUNCOLI
Dead men are hardly ever in good company, and Daken’s no exception. With everyone thinking he’s a goner, Daken now goes to work establishing his new costumed identity. You thought Dark Wolverine was killer, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

X-23 #4
Written by MARJORIE LIU
Penciled by WILL CONRAD
The open road can be a dangerous place for a teenage girl…unless you’re X-23.  Leaving the X-Men is no heartbreak, not when the answers X-23 seeks about herself are out in the world.  But her questions will lead her down a path more dangerous than any she’s ever encountered, one that ties directly into the past of another orphan: Remy Le Beau, aka GAMBIT.

WHAT IF? WOLVERINE: FATHER
Written by ROB WILLIAMS
Penciled by GREG TOCCHINI
If there’s one person who shouldn’t raise a child, it’s a berserker killing machine. In the regular Marvel Universe, Logan wasn’t there for Daken, and his son grew up to become the murderous Dark Wolverine. But what would have happened if Logan had known of Daken’s existence as a child, and had taken him under his wing from his first moments? Can a child with Logan’s blood running through his veins ever turn his back on murder? Can Logan find redemption and be a good father? Raising Daken will be Wolverine’s greatest battle.

  1. Vampires are truly amazing creatures. Various people are not aware of that Vampires are actually mythological monsters from before Egyptian days. Within the Greek invasions, the Greeks took Vampires for the own mythology. It wasn’t till the 40’s that others in western culture really begun to get behind vampires. Dracula was one of the first vampires people saw inside a public setting… i.e the movies.

  2. Actually, Bram Stoker’s hugely popular novel, “Dracula,” upon which the original stage play and later, the movie are based was published in the 1890s.
