It’s that time again. You knew it was coming! It’s that moment where Marvel tries to squeeze a few extra dollars out of you in anticipation of their new event and/or series. This time, of course it’s Marvel NOW! which you might be sick of hearing about. Much like previous point one issues, this one promises to be a prelude to the Marvel NOW! soft reboot, with a metric ton of big names coming at you next month. Don’t believe me?
