Seven solicitations from Marvel for October.

 

The full solicitations.



SECRET AVENGERS #6
Written by ED BRUBAKER
Penciled by MIKE DEODATO JR.
Cover by MARKO DJURDJEVIC
Vampire Variant by AMANDA CONNER
Variant Cover by MIKE DEODATO
Everybody is Kung Fu fighting... as the Secret Avengers descend into the depths of Marvel's darkest corners on a new case that brings them face to face with a Master of Kung Fu and many forces of evil. Ed Brubaker and Mike Deodato bring you another twisted tale of Marvel's most popular new Avengers team.

Great, now I've got that song stuck in my head.



CAPTAIN AMERICA #611
Written by ED BRUBAKER
Penciled by BUTCH GUICE
Cover by MARKO DJURDJEVIC
Vampire Variant by GERALD PAREL
The Trial of Captain America begins here! Nothing will ever be the same again, and this time we mean it. Award-winning writer Ed Brubaker and acclaimed artist Butch Guice continue to take Captain America to new heights!

I was guessing that this was the outcome of Zemo's plan; from Brubaker's interviews, I'm looking forward to this story. Seems like it's going to be sort of the final confrontation with his past as the Winter Soldier.



CAPTAIN AMERICA: FOREVER ALLIES #3 (of 4)
Written by ROGER STERN
Penciled by NICK DRAGOTTA & MARCO SANTUCCI
Cover by LEE WEEKS
In wartime Los Angeles, Lady Lotus has turned Bucky and the Young Allies into her mind-slaves. Now, Captain America is determined to keep Lotus from gaining an even greater source of power ... cosmic power! Nick Dragotta (WEB OF SPIDER-MAN) dramatically depicts a raging aerial dogfight over the Hollywood hills -- Marco Santucci (SIEGE: SPIDER-MAN) unearths a mysterious temple on the edge of ancient Lemuria itself -- and Roger Stern (AVENGERS: UNDER SIEGE) tells all, as the action of two different eras heats up in "Across the Pacific!"

I quite liked Stern's original Young Allies special, so I'm interested to see what he does with the group in a larger story. Plus, it's very rare to see the WWII superheroes in the Pacific Theatre.



AVENGERS VS. PET AVENGERS #1 (of 4)
Written by CHRIS ELIOPOULOS
Pencils & Cover by IG GUARA
Basic Truth: It’s very hard to protect the earth when you’ve been turned into a frog. The Pet Avengers Return! Good thing, too, cuz dragons have decided that it’s time to take over the world and oppress the silly humans once and for all!!! And since Captain America, Iron Man & Thor are all green and hopping about, here’s hoping they can get used to their new flippers in time to fight alongside Earth’s Mightiest Pets!

Should be fun (Iron Man's armour looks kinda thin to me).
 

CHAOS WAR #1 (of 5)
Written by GREG PAK & FRED VAN LENTE
Penciled by KHOI PHAM
Backup Story Penciled by REILLY BROWN
Cover by ED McGUINNESS
Sketch Variant by ED McGUINNESS
Bigger than THE INFINITY GAUNTLET! More cosmic than ANNIHILATION! Since the end of SECRET INVASION, the CHAOS KING has amassed his army of alien slave gods -- and the time to strike Earth is NOW! Only the greatest Marvel heroes can oppose him -- all led by the newly-returned god of heroes ... HERCULES! But are even his incredible new powers enough to stand against the greatest threat the Marvel Universe has ever seen – a mad god who seeks to destroy Reality itself?
PLUS: While thought dead, Hercules was trapped in a dangerous world that threatened his very sanity. Find out the secret of his exile in a special extra story penciled by PRINCE OF POWER’s Reilly Brown!
 

 

CHAOS WAR #2 (of 5)
Written by GREG PAK & FRED VAN LENTE
Penciled by KHOI PHAM
Cover by BRANDON PETERSON
The premiere event of the fall continues! When the greatest threat the Marvel Universe has ever seen lays waste to reality and brings Earth's mightiest heroes to their knees, who you gonna call? That's right: the all-new, all-different, all-divine GOD SQUAD! The fan-favorite team from SECRET INVASION returns, led by Thor and Hercules. And check out the cosmic heavy-hitters they choose to round out their sacred strikeforce: Galactus, Silver Surfer, Venus, Sersi and Hellstorm! Plus: After the shocking death of a major Marvel character last issue, you'll never believe who the Chaos King has next on his hit list!

The big finale has arrived; can't wait. With Van Lente said to be working on an Avengers title, I wonder if we'll see Herc and Cho on that when this is over.



WOLVERINE #2
Written by JASON AARON
Penciled by RENATO GUEDES
Cover by JAE LEE
Variant Cover by ARTHUR ADAMS
Vampire Variant by MIKE MAYHEW
Imagine everyone Logan has ever killed over the course of his very long life, all confined to one place, all itching to get their shot at revenge. Now witness the devil give them just what they want. It's Logan versus the legion of the damned, including some very familiar faces. And with Logan's demonically-possessed body still running amuck on earth, the body count can only grow. Who could possibly stand in his way? Maybe... Mystique???

If, as the cover suggests, we get some significant time with Sabretooth, I'll be excited, because Jason Aaron is just the guy to write him well after Loeb's debacle.



X-23 #2
Written by MARJORIE LIU
Penciled by WILL CONRAD
Cover by DANNI SHINYA LUO
Vampire Variant by MIKE MAYHEW
X-23 has never been a normal teenager, but with a demonic Wolverine on the loose, her dreams of becoming that normal teen seem less possible than ever. When the images this imposter Wolverine has been filling her head with become real, who can she turn to? And where is the real Wolverine in all of this? Find out as the series you’ve been waiting for continues!

That's a really nice cover.

I do like that the Wolverine books are all starting off on the same foot; brings a nice bit of continuity. I was disappointed when Liu left Black Widow for this, but I'm looking forward to seeing where she'll take Laura.
