The first half of Brian Michael Bendis’ radical Avengers revamp is collected in one massive volume! When the Avengers are disassembled by an insane Scarlet Witch, a new and decidedly different team rises to take their place – including Spider-Man, Wolverine and Luke Cage! These New Avengers face down a prison break, the secrets of the Sentry, the menace of the multi-powered Collective and more – and even find time to celebrate the marriage of one of their own. But when a terrible tragedy kicks off a superhuman Civil War, will the newly created team be irrevocably shattered?

The Stand is a classic tale of good vs. evil, loss weighed against redemption and despair pitted against hope. It is an apocalyptic vision of man’s battle to save life against a worldwide plague of death. When the viral strain dubbed “Captain Trips” works its way across the face of the country, the painfully few survivors are launched into a nightmare that’s only just begun – but for the Dark Man, Randall Flagg, it’s a dream come true. Based on the masterpiece of apocalyptic horror by celebrated author Stephen King, this lavish adaptation is packed with extras in a two-volume slipcased set!

Collects The Stand: Captain Trips #01- 05; The Stand: American Nightmares#01- 05; The Stand: Soul Survivors #01- 05; The Stand: Hardcases #01- 05; The Stand: No Man’s Land #01- 05; The Stand: The Night Has Come #-01- 05; and The Stand Sketchbook.

  • Writer: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa;
  • Artist: Mike Perkins.

All three omnibuses are due on 19th September 2012.

Daisy Johnson: Quake.

While doesn’t even have it listed, has it for a pre-order price of £47.47.

I expect the omnibus to go up to £50.25 on once the offer ends, so it’s worth pre-ordering now – or getting it from Amazon if you miss the discount!

Secret Warriors available for pre-order!

Forbidden has just made the Secret Warriors omnibus available for pre-order.

Though the book has an RRP of £75, you can buy it from for just £49.01. also has the 904-page HC for £49.01. Which is pretty wierd.

My advice would be to wait maybe just for a week, as normally offer these £75 books with a 40% discount for two weeks only – bringing it down to £45 – as part of their ‘STOP THE PRESS!’ offer. I reckon next week’s graphic novel newsletter wil include the deal, as the latest one was for The Incredible Hulk: Past Perfect – which looks really cool!

Here’s the synopsis for the Secret Warriors omnibus:

Former S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury and his newly minted team of Secret Warriors uncover a conspiracy that reaches from the Oval Office to Japan — and even beyond death. When a shadow war breaks out between Leviathan and Hydra, it’s up to Fury and his Warriors to take them both out.

The reconstituted Howling Commandos join Fury’s ranks, but tragedy waits in the wings as the conflict blossoms into an all-out war on three fronts. As Hydra and Leviathan ready for their final strikes — on each other and the world — Fury will have to make some of the grittiest life-and-death choices of his long life!

Collecting Mighty Avengers #13 and 18, Secret Warriors #1-28, Dark Reign: The List – Secret Warriors, Siege: Secret Warriors, and material from Dark Reign: New Nation. Written By Brian Michael Bendis and Jonathan Hickman; and pencilled by Alex Maleev, Stefano Caselli, Alessandro Vitti, Gianluca Gugliotta, Mirko Colak, David Marquez and Ed McGuinness, with cover artwork by Jim Cheung.

The book is expected to be released in July 2012.
