    Do you know if it'll be released as a graphic novel? I'm tempted to get the comics as I love the books but I'm not sure if it'd be better to wait for a graphic novel.

    MArvel pretty much releases everything as a graphic novel.

    This was a pretty big week for me.
    Astonishing XM 21
    KOTOR 16
    Friendly Spidey 20
    sensational spidey annual
    WWH prologue
    Dark tower 4
    iron man 17
    giant size red sonja.

    I haven't been following planet hulk, do you guys think that it would be worth while to pick up the hulk series? I'm getting interested in it because of world war hulk, buti don't want to get bogged down with a bunch of tie ins and stuff.

    LAroca's art in thes sensational spidey annual was amazing.

    I imagine they will but I cannot say for certain.

    According to Amazon a hardcover edition of Planet Hulk is due out on Jun. 27. Although, I've noticed that for comics, they tend to get their books about 2 weeks after my local comic shop has them so you should be able to pick it up early to mid June.

    EDIT: Quoted the wrong post.

    Can anyone tell me which issues the TPB for Star Wars Legacy:Broken covers? I'd like to know where I should look if I wanted to continue the story.

    The future of Star Wars is here in an all-new adventure set more than a century after Return of the Jedi!The Jedi Temple is attacked, an Emperor is betrayed, and the Sith are born anew! A lot can happen in a hundred years, but that's just the beginning of the story! Not since Luke Skywalker first stepped aboard the Millennium Falcon has the galaxy seemed like such a vast, exciting, dangerous place!Collects Star Wars: Legacy #1-3, #5-7.

    Uncanny X-Men 485
    X-Men 198
    Astonishing X-men 21

    I am mostly interested in the mutant event storyline that starts later this Summer, so I figured I'd do a little catching up.

    I would recommend you also check out New X-Men and X-Factor. While neither team has any A-listers, both a superbly well written and, if my understanding is correct, will both play parts in the X-Men event later this year. X-Factor especially has routinely delivered on multiple levels with lots of interesting characters and a level of humor not found in other books.

    What's your opinion of the series so far? I haven't followed any comic-book since the early 90's, but I always liked Iron Fist, and I see Amazon will be selling a trade-paperback of Immortal Iron Fist 1-6. Is it going to be worth getting?

    This was a good comic week for me.

    Legacy 11
    Dark times 3
    New avengers 30
    Ultimate power 5
    Amazing spidey 540

    All of the comics that i bought this week were cool. Legacy was porbably the strongest of the bunch folled closely by AMS.

    I think it will last less then a year. Only 2 or 3 story arcs max. At some point someone will have to sit him down and be like "You're giving Cap a bad name" or something. Or Cap himself will be back. Probably both.
