A new month, a new Monday, and a fresh stack of digital comics on Marvel Unlimited! There’s plenty of exciting arrivals this week, so we’re breaking down a few of our picks here.

The end is nigh for a handful of heroes in THE END one-shots, a collection of tales that spotlight the final days of your Marvel favorites. This week, it’s the end of the line for Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, and Deadpool, as they face the oblivion of a cosmic void, a cyberpunk world of dying magic, and bodily threats several times over.

The Dawn of X also spreads its Krakoan branches across the following issues: X-MEN (2019) #5, NEW MUTANTS (2019) #6, FALLEN ANGELS (2019) #6, and X-FORCE (2019) #6. Each of these chapters continue to build the world, and rules, that have redefined mutant society, a brave, new turn for not only Xavier’s children, but all of mutantkind.

STAR WARS (2020) #2

Star Wars_2020

“No - I am your father.”

In the wake of the events following The Empire Strikes Back, it is a dark time for the heroes of the Rebellion. The Rebel fleet—scattered following a disastrous defeat at the Battle of Hoth. Han Solo—lost to the bounty hunter, Boba Fett, after being frozen in carbonite. And after being lured into a trap on Cloud City and bested in a vicious lightsaber duel against the evil Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker learned the horrible truth about his past. Vader did not kill Luke’s father Anakin—Vader is Luke’s father! Now, after narrowly escaping the dark lord’s clutches, and wounded and reeling from the revelation, Luke, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, the Wookiee Chewbacca, and the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 must fight their way back to the Rebel Alliance—for the fate of the entire galaxy is at stake!

AVENGERS (2018) #30

Avengers

“Starbrand Reborn” conclusion: Who will be branded? In a Shi’ar space prison the size of a galaxy, the cosmic war for the Starbrand super-weapon comes to its cataclysmic conclusion. Who is the shocking new wielder of the Starbrand? And will they survive long enough to control the epic planet-melting power at their disposal? Not if Gladiator of the Shi’ar has anything to say about it. But the space-ravaged Avengers will have a thing or two to say about it too. Including Brood Thor, Captain Corsair, the War Widow, the new-look She-Hulk and Blade… as you’ve never seen him before!

DOCTOR STRANGE: THE END (2020) #1

Doctor Strange

The final Doctor Strange story! The Sorcerer Supreme makes his final journey through a cyberpunk sprawl that forgot about magic! Reteaming the critically-acclaimed creative team of Leah Williams (GWENPOOL STRIKES BACK) and Filipe Andrade (ABSOLUTE CARNAGE: IMMORTAL HULK)!

IMMORTAL HULK (2018) #30

Immortal Hulk_30

A new issue from this MU favorite!

The first Gamma Bomb unleashed a terrifying creature with impossible strength who waged war on all human authority. The authorities gave the beast a name—a name the whole world knows. But it was someone else’s name first—and now the Hulk That Was has returned to take it back.

AVENGERS OF THE WASTELANDS (2020) #1

Avengers_Wasteland

A new story from the world of “Old Man Logan!” In a world where most of the Super Heroes fell at the hands of the Red Skull over fifty years ago, a new force rises in the Wastelands! Dani Cage wields the mighty Mjolnir for the cause of peace, but when the brutal regime of Doctor Doom forces Dwight, AKA the owner of the surviving Ant-Man technology, to Dani and Hulk in a last ditch effort to survive, the Avengers may assemble once more! Spinning out of the saga begun in “Old Man Logan,” and following up OLD MAN QUILL and DEAD MAN LOGAN, this is the can’t-miss premiere of Ed Brisson and Jonas Scharf’s magnum opus!

NEW MUTANTS (2019) #6

New Mutants

AKA, the issue that will now be known as the “Pilger, Nebraska Disaster.”

Armor leads the New Mutants home! When Armor and her team set off to bring their friends home to Krakoa, they thought it’d be an easy sell and a quick trip. Then everything went sideways, and now they’re in serious trouble—looks like it’s time to call in the cavalry. But will that be enough to turn the tide? Angel and Beak are back in the fold!

HAWKEYE: FREEFALL (2020) #2

Hawkeye_Freefall

Who the %$&@ is Ronin? The mystery surrounding the volatile new Ronin deepens as his actions begin to destabilize the seedy underbelly of New York City.  Hawkeye finds himself caught in the middle of an increasingly dangerous turf war between Ronin and the Hood. Though Clint may not approve of Ronin’s methods, it’s hard to argue with his results. And pretty soon, he may need to choose a side that his allies in the Avengers won’t be happy about it…

X-FORCE (2019) #6

X-Force_6

Deadly choices carry dark consequences! First, Domino and Forge have to pick up the pieces as the team faces a major setback! Then, Beast takes matters into his own hands when a piece of new technology threatens the safety of Krakoa.
