Spider-Man’s sold-out ascent through the Big Time is about to get even more colossal as acclaimed writer Dan Slott and red-hot artists Stefano Caselli and Javier Pulido induct the wall-crawler into the newly minted FF only in Amazing Spider-Man #658 and #659 this April! But now that he’s on the team, will he prove be more a liability than an asset to the FF? The Sinister Six are betting on it…and they’ll ensure that the all-new FF’s first steps into the world shake the Marvel Universe for years to come!

“Spidey and the FF are really what Marvel is all about. And with both books firing on all cylinders right now, I couldn’t be happier to see their worlds overlap more” says Marvel Senior Editor, Stephen Wacker. “All of this is building up to some big moments for Spidey as his work with the FF comes at a pretty crucial time in his life. It’s going to be a dramatic summer for Spidey… to say the least.”

The smash hit storyline of the year collides with the epic opening salvo of Marvel’s newest super-team this April only in Amazing Spider-Man #658 and #659! And follow the wall-crawler into the annals of Marvel history when FF #1 arrives this March!

THE X-MEN WILL FALL

This May, leading up to the biggest decision of the X-Men’s lives, Eisner Award-winning writer Paul Jenkins and rising star artists Robert De La Torre and Laurence Campbell sow seeds of this discontent amongst the ranks of the mutant nation in X-Men: Prelude #1 (of 4)! There is a calm before every storm and in the months to come, the Children of the Atom will be faced with a decisive turning point. One that threatens to pit brother against brother, lover against lover, and mutant against mutant.

“To understand what is coming in the X-Men, you need to understand what has already transpired” says X-Men Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “The history of the X-Men is a huge tapestry and what we’re trying to do here is sum up the necessary info, while filling in blanks and adding new twists that will set fanboys a-Twittering. In this series, Paul lays out the complexities for the fans so they can see the foundation that is beginning to crack.”

The dream that Charles Xavier built – crumbles and what you knew about the X-Men changes here. It all begins in X-Men: Prelude #1 (of 4)!
