Fire and wind come from the sky, from the gods of the sky. But Comics is your god, Comics and he lives in the earth. Once, giants lived in the Earth, Conan. And in the darkness of chaos, they fooled Comics, and they took from him the enigma of steel. Comics was angered. And the Earth shook. Fire and wind struck down these giants, and they threw their bodies into the waters, but in their rage, the gods forgot the secret of steel and left it on the battlefield. We who found it are just men. Not gods. Not giants. Just men. The secret of steel has always carried with it a mystery. You must learn its riddle, Conan. You must learn its discipline. For no one – no one in this world can you trust. Not men, not women, not beasts. This you can trust.

By Brian Michael Bendis & Stuart Immonen
I wouldn’t describe my emotions around All-New X-Men #1 as excited, rather more along the lines of cautiously nervous. Many of you will already be picking this up, but if you’re not, you can’t help but be a bit curious as what this new era in X-Men under the stewardship of Bendis will be like, and there’s only one way to find out.

By Brian Wood, Declan Shalvey and Dave Stewart
Over its run, Brian Wood’s Conan the Barbarian has had a stellar group of artists, one after the other. We’ve seen Becky Cloonan and James Harren, among others, and now Declan Shalvey joins the fray. Wood and Shalvey worked together on the final arc of Northlanders, and now they’re taking up the sword again. If you’ve missed out on this series so far, get with it now. It’s so much fun, and by Crom, it’s never too late.

By Jason Aaron & Esad Ribic
I can’t think of a modern writer more suited to take on Thor than Jason Aaron. I mean, the dude already has an awesome beard. Also, I’ve personally witnessed him drink mead. Plus, he has a talent for combining big action with humor and general mayhem. I can’t think of a more perfect mix of strengths in a Thor writer. Plus! Esad Ribic is supercalifragilisticexpialidope.
