Cable #1: Writer Duane Swierczysnki; Art Ariel Olivetti - Marvel Comics
Cable is on his own with his new on-going series. From the recent epic X-Men cross-over of "Messiah Complex," Cable continues his journey with the first mutant born baby girl. Nathan Summers may be from the future, but his future is now, trying to save the mutant race.
No fret Deadpool fans, he will also get his own on-going series by Daniel Way & Steve Dillon (coming soon). Also keep a look out for Deadpool to cameo in the new "Wolverine Origins" movie, played by Ryan Reynolds
"ARMS," Part 1 - A new ongoing series spinning out of the decade's biggest X-Men event! The future of mutantkind starts here! "Messiah CompleX" changed the X-Men forever.
But no one's world has been rocked as hard as Cable, the time-traveling mutant from the future. He's been charged with the one mission that could save all of mutantkind -- or, if he fails, damn it to extinction. And hot on his trail is a relentless enemy who won't stop until blood is spilled. No matter where... or when... Cable runs.
Brought to you by the dynamic team of Duane Swierczysnki (MOON KNIGHT ANNUAL) and Ariel Olivetti (PUNISHER WAR JOURNAL). Rated T+
Other comics out this week
SNIKT! Wolverine has re-claimed his memories and is in no-doubt of some hairy action as he tries to settle a score with an old foe on one of his first battleground that he experienced; Logan #1 (of 3) Written by Brian K. Vaughan (Y: the Last man, Runaways) and art by Eduardo Risso (100 Bullets).
Finishing up on Strangers In Paradise last year, creator Terry Moore presents his new black and white title Echo.

Her only friends are a park ranger and the spirit of a dead woman that echoes in her heart.
Deadly crimes and everyday teenage drama at high school is something that Raven from the Teen Titans has to deal with in the new five part mini-series "DC Special: Raven." Written by Marv Wolfman (Nightwing) with art and cover by Damion Scott (Batgirl) and Robert Campanella.
Trade of the week: Chronicles of Conan Vol. 14 TPB
Conan faces his most arduous adventure yet as he matches his wits and brawn against the very forces of nature itself-no small task, even for a man who's done battle with wizards, otherworldly beasts, and ancient gods. But will the strength of steel really be enough against such powers? All this plus the tenth anniversary story by Roy Thomas and John Buscema, this volume marks the end of an era-collecting the final issues of Roy Thomas's celebrated run on Conan the Barbarian. Featuring completely re-mastered colour, this volume is a must for fans of classic sword and sorcery!
* Collects Conan the Barbarian Issues # 108-115.

Superman And Batman Vs. Aliens And Predators #1 (Of 2); Written by Mark Schultz, art and cover by Ariel Olivetti
Watch back on The Matrix Reloaded
, the one with The Architect/Colonel Sanders in the reality room and with that battle between Neo on hundreds of Agent Smiths.
As Neo and the others of the resistance are going guns against the machines down in the belly of the real world, does it feel like in parts not unlike watching Superman battle hordes of Aliens?
It's the battle you've been waiting for in a thrilling 2-issue miniseries by Mark Schultz (Cadillacs and Dinosaurs) with computer-generated painted art by Ariel Olivetti (SPACE GHOST)!
They're back! The relentless killing machines known as Aliens and the unstoppable race of hunters called Predators have returned to Earth. But saying "they're back" isn't quite accurate - Batman discovers that the two races, sealed away from the human population, have been here all along!
Can he and Superman get them off our world before they threaten the planet's existence?
Superman And Batman Vs. Aliens And Predators #1 (Of 2) from DC Comics
Suit up in a block of heavy metal and jump out of a plane, surely another way toward Iron Man: Hypervelocity
. New Iron Man armour is put to the test and really, when a bloke like that makes so many iterations of his battle suit, something bad's bound to bounce back. Adam Warren and Brian Denham are bolting this sixer up.
Marvel also present Squadron Supreme: Hyperion vs Nighthawk
in the ring with Mark Guggenheim and Paul Gulacy. Quarter cut smack down between, well, the title just says it right there.
Aspen MLT said it themselves that Soulfire: Chaos Reign Beginnings
won't be out there on shelves. And yet, here it appears on the shipping list. Poodle hat.
Short fills across the American comic reading world affected the release of Civil War #6
among other comics. Rest of the numbers are in this week. That annoying card for a music download site still comes attached. Can't help it. Have cutting implements for those who want to rid themselves of it though.
Notice a swag of re-orders this week in the DC section with a starter on Superman #654
? From Kurt Busiek, Carlos Pacheco and Jesus Merino, it's the start of their run on the Man of Steel. Clark is trying to gum up the side stories and prove himself worthy of being an ace reporter for The Daily Planet. Is it an "again" moment?
There's Frew Publications for those who like their purple in black and white. For those who like their purple in colour, Phantom
from Moonstone sates that desire. Pick up a copy and smell the pages. Now that's good sniffing. But don't nose it too close.
J.K. Vaughn, Mark L. Haynes and Jean Diaz run the mix in six but right now the third is out. So step it back some with IDW Publishing as they jump behind the tick-tick-ticking of that clock in 24: Nightfall #1
Warren Ellis and Mike Deodato prove that justice, like lightening, isn't always about redemption as Thunderbolts #110
heralds a new sort of team that really isn't a team.

Punisher: War Journal #1 - Written by Matt Fraction with art by Ariel Olivetti
Take the strain as there's nothing like the grimace of someone as you walk through that door and realise that, yes, it is engaged and they're on the way to drop another. Face of the nation atop the throne of the house taking its dues.
Grin and bear it like the lungs need to feel it.
Frank Castle is back in the Marvel Universe and unlike others who've tip-toed the line between anti and pro-registration, Frank is diving right into the Civil War starting in the all-new ongoing series Punisher War Journal #1. Frank's not likely to have second thoughts about his role: those who deserve punishment will pay... and the sentence is death.
First up on the list: Stilt-Man! Wilbur Day, more commonly known as Stilt-Man, might not be a heavy hitter, but it doesn't matter who you are, if you cross Frank Castle you're done for. Take note true believers, Frank isn't going soft just because he's back in the Marvel Universe; expect blood and lots of it.
Written by Matt Fraction with Young Guns: Reloaded artist Ariel Olivetti, Punisher War Journal ties directly into Civil War #5 and guarantees to change the tide of the war. What is Frank's plan? How will he affect this war? Only he knows and we're too scared to ask!
Punisher: War Journal #1 - Marvel Comics
Coming to a New Years that's yet to happen, IDW Publishing with Angel: Auld Lang Syne
. Scott Tipton and David Messina face with Angel and Spike to spot some old ghosts and faces that just won't die.
Split that DC bulls eye six ways with Connor Hawke: Dragon's Blood
. Chuck Dixon and Derec Donovan head off with Connor Hawke for what starts out to be a simple archery contest. And from there the solicit info jumps into the underwear drawer.
Certainly not the stuff for all ages, C.B. Cebulski and Sana Takeda takes on ninjas and vampires in Drain
. From Image Comics, it's a tale of centuries with a ninja vampire out for revenge.
For those who missed the first step in the adaptation of Laurell K. Hamilton's novels, and there were a few, Dabel Brothers are on the trail with Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter - Guilty Pleasures
. Twelve steps to the end and on the path to bringing in the rogue vampires, Stacie M. Ritchie and Brett Booth are on the case.
Katana blades, zombies, and a whole bunch of other refugees in Zombies: Eclipse Of the Undead
. El Torres, Yair Herrera with another IDW title that doesn't link well from their own site.
In a solicit that has way too many exclamation marks, Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis and Julia Bax present lessons three in Planetary Brigade Origins New School
. Boom! Studios holding the session where things come and go in the span of a chuckle or two.
Names are dripping all over the Red Menace
from Wildstorm Comics. Six issues to hold names such as Jerry Ordway, Al Vey, Paul DeMeo, Danny Bilson and Adam Brody. That's right, two of the last three are connected to The O.C. It's 1953 and the fear of Communism with no cigars is rife in the USA. More red clothes!
IDW Publishing take a step back before the tick-tick-ticking of that clock that never comes or runs into a 1 in 24: Nightfall
. J.K. Vaughn, Mark L. Haynes and Jean Diaz take it and do it in six. Like an old style clock. Real old-style, like one that never existed.
are here and they're from Near Mint Press. Kenn Minter and Clarence Pruitt look to tongue an indy loving purchase with a short order of misfits looking to earn some quick cash. You probably won't see this on the shelf too long, it's a strange one that orders this...
