With January gone we enter the beginning of February with the two main publishers going in different directions. Marvel is ramping up their main story-lines of the year with the beginning of Miles Morales in the Marvel Universe. DC is getting closer to the end of the New 52 universe with the announcement of Rebirth coming soon. Image and Titan-Comics are leaning on their heavyweight comics this month to carry them into spring.
Here is a list of the comics I am looking forward to this week.

SPIDER-MAN (2016) #1
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Miles Morales has been doing the super hero thing for a while, now, but after SECRET WARS, he’ll be a full-fledged member of the Marvel Universe. Swinging next to The Invincible Iron Man, The Mighty Thor and the All-New Captain America as a card-carrying member of the Avengers is an adventure, but it’s not all fun and games for New York City’s main Spider-MAN! What happened in the eight month gap? It all starts in SPIDER-MAN #1!
DEADPOOL & THE MERCS FOR MONEY (2016) #1
Writer: Cullen Bunn
Deadpool might be an Avenger now, but he’s also got his own private team of mercenaries...the legally-cleared-to-be-called MERCS FOR MONEY! Got a problem you can’t solve on your own and a pile of money you’d like to be rid of? Just call Deadpool, Stingray, Massacre, Solo, Foolkiller, Terror and Slapstick and watch as that problem is shot, stabbed, eviscerated, pulverized and generally made bloody!
GREEN ARROW #49

The Patriots have been cleared of any wrongdoing during the Midnight Parade attack, which only encourages what Green Arrow sees as state-sanctioned violence against the wargs! How can Oliver hide the symptoms of his Lukos infection while keeping the city safe from a brewing war?
