Highlights for Wednesday, May 9: Marvel Comics
For a while there, Rick Remender’s Uncanny X-Force was pound for pound the best X-book on the shelves. The tales of the X-Men’s secret black ops team, in particular the return of Apocalypse, were downright awesome. The book then lost a bit of its spark for a while. But with this week’s Uncanny X-Force #26, which kicks off a brand new chapter, hopefully X-Force is back, baby!

Landmark 25th issue! The epic saga THE FINAL EXECUTION begins here! Who are the Omegas and why must X-Force hunt them down? Included in this issue: Two rare stories by Rick Remender and Jerome Opeña starring Wolverine and Deadpool!
Also this week, look out for a triple shot of Avengers vs. X-Men tie-in’s with New Avengers #26, Wolverine and the X-Men #10 and X-Men Legacy #266! It’s also a double Ultimates week with Ultimate Comics X-Men #11 and Ultimate Comics Ultimates #10!
Plus, if you happened to pick up last month’s Omega Effect story arc — which ran through Avenging Spider-Man, Punisher and Daredevil — and you’re interested to see what those books are like on their own, this week is your chance! Look for Avenging Spider-Man #7 and Punisher #11.
Finally, we have to give it up for the newest series in the Marvel Zombies canon: Marvel Zombies Destroy #1. I believe this is the sixth or seventh Marvel Zombies mini-series and just about all of them have been entertaining. Hard not to love Howard the Duck!
