Buy/Bid – Cable & Deadpool #50
Buy/Bid – Edge of Venomverse #5
Buy/Bid – Incredible Hulk #340
Buy/Bid – Weapon X #7










The Venom mash-up series continues in Edge Of Venomverse #5 this week. Deadpool + Venom = Venompool. The one thing we absolutely believe is a bit cringe-worthy are the names these Venom mash-ups are receiving. Venompool just doesn’t sound right. Well neither did Gwenpool, but she got her own book, so what are we talking about? Go Venompool! Oh, just in case you didn’t know, the first Venom/Deadpool mash-up occurred in Cable & Deadpool #50 (2008). And yes of course we gave our fans a heads up when that book was $15. If you find this comic for $15 now, grab it. But you won’t, so don’t bother looking for it.

We’re not too sure what we’re in for with the new release Weapon X #7. The cover looks ultra intriguing as we will assume we are getting more Weapon H, but the solicit suggests we may get an experimental character(s) popping up, so be on top of this book just in case. And this cover is definitely an inspired cover by Skan from Todd McFarlane’s Incredible Hulk #340 (1988).

Daken makes an appearance in Iceman #4. This will be the first time in some while we’ve seen Daken outside of a Wolverine book. Since 2014’s Uncanny Avengers #22.
Secret Empire #9 disguises a character on its cover in a black shadow ‘CLASSIFIED’. Who could it be? As Marvel slowly eases the fanboy away from that ledge. Cap will be back, your worry and protest will be over soon.
