This collection of obesity-related justice-based hijinks, featuring work by some of the greatest talents to ever handle Mega-City One, will be available in the US in July from 2000AD’s online shop as well as comic stores.

Earth has been marked as an “Avengers World”, protected by Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and more from the deadliest threats facing humanity. A powerful and destructive race is on a collision course with Earth and the only thing in their path is the Avengers! But even Earth’s Mightiest Heroes realise the one hope of defeating this dire threat is to unite every great hero across the cosmos… because only with a united Avengers Universe is there any chance of survival! With our heroes at the other end of the universe, who is left to protect Earth? Enter Thanos, the galaxy’s most ruthless threat and an unparalleled force of brutality who brings order to the chaos of life through murder. The greatest threat to the Mad Titan’s work — and perhaps the universe’s greatest hope — is something he created leaving no world safe. Earth’s last hope may lie in the hands of a man who can level cities with a single whisper – Black Bolt, king of the Inhumans. But can the fearsome leader of a race hated and feared by his world, lead his people against Thanos? If they fall, so does the Earth—and the entire universe with it.
Yeah, we’ll read that. It’s out in August.
Well that’s what we’re calling it anyway, it’s actually called Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It follows the human dudes in the Marvel Universe – people like Agent Coulson from Avengers Assemble, and hopefully his hot mate Agent Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders). We’re definitely interested to see how they deal with Agent Coulson after what happened in Avengers Assemble, but them lot at Marvel are a bunch of clever clogs so hopefully they’ll come up with something better than ‘IT WAS ALL A DREAM
I USED TO READ WORD UP MAGAZINE‘ or anything equally stupid.
We’re pretty excited about this and we’re definitely going to watch it.
Here’s a fun little ‘viral’ blog all about it, sorry, we mean a REAL blog all about the REAL story behind it: wearetherisingtide.com/blog
Mark Millar and Frank Quitely’s awesome new comic Jupiter’s Legacy sold the hell out in shit-all time, but Image have announced they’re doing another big fat run of them, arriving in shops on 5 June. Pro tip: buy it. It’s very good. Also, to be honest, we’ll buy anything Frank Quitely ever has anything to do with. Even if he gets employed just to do the rubbing-out on a comic, you can guarantee that’ll be the most beautiful rubbing-out you’ve ever seen.
Behold, the first glance at the highly anticipated new X-Men series coming from DMZ’s Brian Wood and Thor’s Oliver Coipel. There’s something all the characters shown here – Storm, Rogue, Jubilee, Kitty Pryde, Rachel Grey, Rogue and Psylocke – have in common, we just can’t quite put our fingers on it. They all like spaghetti? That’s probably true, yeah, but then, everyone likes spaghetti. They all watch The Simpsons? That’s definitely true, but everyone watches The Simpsons. What could it be? They’re all… hang on… female. Yep, this marks the first ever all-female X-Men lineup, which is awesome, and we’re excited about it. It’s dropping on 29 May, comes with a free digital version through the Marvel app, and should be ace.
This is a video message from General Zod, the villain from Man Of Steel, the Christopher Nolan-produced Superman film coming out in June. You’d think if you were General Zod you could get a better camera, but whatevs, yo. Also, if you ever have difficulty remembering who the goodies and baddies are, here’s a helpful poem:
Is nice, like Dan.
Is a big bad sod.
(Note: this only works if you have a nice friend called Dan.)
