Spinning off the pages of the latest Marvel event, Axis, Tony Stark’s old demons have come back to haunt him setting off a dark new chapter for Marvel’s armored avenger.  Writer Tom Taylor (Injustice: Gods Among Us, Earth-Two) takes the reigns for this new direction with the help of artist Yildiray Cinar (Huntress).  Extremis 3.0 is unleashed by Tony Stark in what could be his biggest revenue-generating brainchild yet, but at what cost on the buying public?  And what does Pepper Potts think of Tony’s plan?  Rest assured, she has never been shy about giving Tony her honest opinion, but her concerns run deeper than the Stark Industry business agenda.  And her contingency plan contains some surprising elements.

For those mature readers out there, Vertigo has a new release called The Kitchen which follows a group of street-wise females who earn their respect on the streets of New York when the men in their lives aren’t there to provide ill-gotten gains.  We are sure it’s not for the squeamish, but Vertigo has given us some good titles over the past couple of years including the now-running Coffin Hill and New Deadwardians (favorites of ours).  Check it out!

Great Stories are everywhere!
