It all looks pretty good to me. Especially with the art for Loki, Ms. marvel and surprisingly all-new invaders. Although I'm only reading Loki and Ms.Marvel.

As much as I want a Silver Surfer title, I don't think that this is going to be the one for me. I want to see the Silver Surfer that we saw at the beginning of Infinity in the digital comic and not one hanging around Earth. We already have the GOTG which are spending a lot more time around earth than I would prefer. I am not a fan of the way he looks in the art by Allred when compared to many of the ways he has been depicted and especially from what we saw in the Infinite comic.

I'll check out Ms.Marvel and Black Widow...that's about it.

@cap10nate: Almost all the SS stories will be taking place accross the galaxies rather than on Earth.

This is pretty much exactly what I was going to say. I agree with what you said about Surfer, the Guardians...everything. Cosmic Marvel needs to start being Cosmic again!

I'm getting 3 of 6 of these titles(Ms. Marvel, Silver Surfer, Avengers World), so I'll have to get this issue. The art looks good all round. :)

I'm kind of tempted to get the first arc of Invaders for the Kree too though.

I can barely breathe, I'm so excited for these new titles. This is probably the most excited I've been since I got back into comics a year-and-some-change ago. Silver Surfer is gonna be *awesome* and will hopefully slot nicely into the hole in my heart left behind by FF, and the pure class coming off of Noto's Black Widow has me trembling. Super excited for the new Punisher book, which I hope can grab some pages from Rucka's rendition of the character and then evolve that - and I'll follow Fraction to the ends of the earth, so when it involves Inhumans and Madureira I'm so on-board I'm basically part of the ship decor.

All of it looks promising. Love the Silver Surfer art by Mike Allred. The art and action on display for The Invaders is top notch. Cool.

!? The thing just swallowed my post. :O

Agh. I can't write that whole thing again. Short version: Slott has said we'll see brand new corners of the Marvel universe - places not even the Surfer has seen. I wouldn't worry about it not being cosmic enough. It will, however, be fun and adventurous and quirky, so if you guys wanted a grittier take it's probably a pass.

Now please don't eat this post....

Edit: It didn't! Woo.

So... Black Widow's dead...

I'll probably get all of them but don't see myself reading Ms Marvel for long. I wonder why Gladiator is wearing his old uniform?

Posted by Onemoreposter

SIlver Surfer art is beautiful.

Can someone tell me what's up with Ms. Marvel's arm

His other one is generally for meetings (public appearances) but i do want it to become his new attire as it looks way better .Why can't Gladiator be a main character in any event even in infinity he just stood around doing nothing :( .

She's got Mr. Fantastic style powers.

Just name it : "New reader come here", it'll be simpler for everyone !

same here.

Edited by IDontLikeBirds

Hm, nothing really caught my attention. I just noticed that I don't read much Marvel anymore (just Thor: God of Thunder and Superior Spider-man) ever since they cancelled Scarlet Spider and Venom, plus who knows what's up with the Ultimate comics line, there goes two other titles I read.

Inhuman and Moon Knight!

Posted by dagmar_merrill

Moon Knight, Punisher, Black Widow and Silver Surfer are the ones I'll check out.

Probably not. How much you wanna bet the next page reveals that the blonde guy was shot in the head and Natasha was able to quick-draw on him?

Also, I'm probably only going to pick up MOON KNIGHT and SILVER SURFER. I highly doubt I'll stick with the new SILVER SURFER title long since I'm not a huge cosmic Marvel fan.

the new ms marvel power look very uninteresting

Posted by Akindoodle

The art for Black Widow. Oh the art!

Seems likely. That, or he really hates wolves.
