Where the heck is my Ninjak solo book?!

Edited by Hawkguy

Missions Improbable sounds awesome! As cool as Unity has been, I would have preferred another solo title, for Ninjak of course.

Edited by CheeseSticks

Oh yeah, give me some Harbinger!!!

I pretty excited for the Archer and Armstrong crossover with Bloodshot. That cover with Archer and Armstrong behind the wall while Bloodshot is coming is hilarious ahaha.

Edited by Jonny_Anonymous

Man some of these covers are amazing, cant wait.

Posted by Xwraith

I also want the Ninjak book to finally start.

It's the reason I'm not picking up any of the All-New Marvel Now books.

I think he will be back in Eternal Warrior 5, because Eternal Warrior came back in Archer and Armstrong 5, and Ninjak came back in XO Manowar 5, it might be some sort of pattern.

I chalk that up to coincidence, but we'll see I guess.

I'm loving valiant, especially Harbinger!!! They're so comfortable to follow without much difficulty.

By my point of view, Valiant is a nice start whenever people want to try something new.

Posted by TheAmazingImmortalMan

Unity, XO Manowar and EW are on my list

Edited by AminoAcidMan

Archer and Armstrong looks cool. Quantum and Woody looks hilarious. I think i'm going straight Valiant next year
