X-Men Versus Agents of Atlas

This is a banner week for new comics, folks. Planetary #27, the long-awaited last issue of the series. Jeff Parker's Spider-Man 1602 #1. The return of Astonishing X-Men with issue #31, now with art by Phil Jimenez, which Warren Ellis promises will contain "spaceships, asteroid bases, beasties and explosions." But once you've picked up all of those, be sure to get X-Men Versus Agents of Atlas #1, script by Jeff Parker and art by Chris Samnee and Carlo Pagulayan. This bridges the Agents of Atlas from their ongoing series to their upcoming backup feature in the pages of Incredible Hercules, with a group of specials over the horizon. (And if you're not already reading Incredible Hercules, then you are missing out, my friends.)

I've raved about Agents of Atlas more times than I can count (just see for yourself), and I'd very much like Jeff Parker to continue writing their adventures well into the future. Healthy sales on this X-Men crossover miniseries would no doubt do much to increase those chances. So buy it, already!

And if you're on the fence, check out Chris Samnee's blog all this week, where he's showcasing preliminary sketches done in the run-up to the series. Here's the first taste, posted this morning.

Come on, people. Killer robot and talking gorilla? What else do you need to know?!
