Age of X: Universe #1 (OF 2) – And there came an Age Of X, an age unlike any other, where there were no X-Men...mutants were hated and feared. In that age, the remaining mutants created a stronghold, a last bastion for their dying race: Fortress X. And in that Age Of X, when humanity vowed to see Fortress X destroyed, a team of heroes and heroines found themselves united against this terrible mutant threat. This is their epoch!

Caligula #1 (OF 6) – In an age of depravity, one man's appetites horrified the entire Roman Empire. The very Empire he ruled. Some stories are passed from one generation to the next only in secret. Told in hushed whispers as the very words are too horrific to speak aloud for fear they offend the Gods. A Roman Empire built on the blood of its people, a ruler who began as a generous man but who ended as the most debased of monarchs. One name still speaks volumes of how absolute power can corrupt - Caligula. David (Crossed) Lapham unveils a new tale of Caligula, he was not just a man drunk on power, he was possessed. A modern master of horror, Lapham digs deep into the world of Rome 37 AD and offers a unique epic of horror. Joined by new talent German Nobile who promises to serve up fully-painted pages dripping with blood, this all-new, full-color series will be six issues of evil that will make any Crossed fan smile with glee. For in the age of Caligula, all roads lead to Hell. Caligula #1 is available with a Regular cover by Jacen Burrows, a Wraparound cover by series artist German Nobile.

Captain America & the Secret Avengers #1 – Steve Rogers' black ops femme fatales go on the hunt for a rogue assassin! The Black Widow & Agent 13 join forces to stop an under-aged assassin from taking her revenge on a killer of a headmistress. Fierce fisticuffs, death-defying duels and good ol' fashioned espionage ensue as everything comes to a head in the Big Apple where the gals go in guns blazin' against...teenaged versions of themselves?!

Cinderella: Fables are Forever #1 (OF 6) – Hot on the heels of her breakout miniseries CINDERELLA: FROM FABLETOWN WITH LOVE, Fabletown's favorite secret-agent and bon vivant Cinderella is back on the job again in an all-new 6-issue miniseries, alongside writer Chris Roberson and artist Shawn McManus! Someone is killing sorcerers out on the Farm, and all signs point to Cinderella's archnemesis from the old days. The only problem is, Cinderella has always believed that her nemesis has been dead for years. So who is the assassin from Cinderella's past - the only person who ever came close to defeating her? Find out in the pages of CINDERELLA: FABLES ARE FOREVER!

Cyclops #1 – Scott Summers: Team leader of the X-Men, always helping people in need. Also: Never happy! Maybe a visit from BATROC THE LEAPER & the CIRCUS OF CRIME can shed some light on what makes Cyclops tick!

Jimmy Olsen #1 – The hit ACTION COMICS co-feature that everyone's talking about gets its own collection, reprinting the first four parts of the story and presenting 30 all-new pages that bring 'Jimmy Olsen's Big Week' to a ridiculously over-the-top close! When Jimmy Olsen finds out that his ex-girlfriend, Chloe Sullivan, is spending a week writing a profile about a young big-shot LexCorp employee, Jimmy is determined to prove to Chloe that he can have just as exciting and interesting a week. Cue bar fights with drunken aliens, a visit to the Yarn Barn with Supergirl, Fifth Dimensional stalkers, and Jimmy Olsen: Space Warrior!

Undying Love #1 – A horror-action tale, equal parts vampire mythology and Chinese folklore, set in modern day Hong Kong. Ex-soldier John Sargent has fallen for a beautiful Chinese woman named Mei. The only thing keeping the star-crossed lovers apart: Mei's a vampire. To free Mei from the curse, Sargent sets out to destroy the vampire that made her. The only problem: Mei was turned by one of the most powerful vampires in history...

Alex Update

For everyone who has been asking, Alex is doing MUCH better now. He's still in the hospital at the moment, still recovering, but he should be back to himself before long and back to his usual routine over the next week or so.

Sitting in the hospital is no fun, so anyone who wants to go visit Alex is welcome. If you can take comic books or something else to ease the boredom, that would be appreciated too.
