The first official week of June gets off to a great start at Marvel Comics, propelled of course by the power of Avengers vs. X-Men (which we’ll talk about a little later today). But there are also several part one’s and new storylines to talk about, all of which would make for great places to start reading those titles. We’ll start with Winter Soldier #6 from Ed Brubaker and Michael Lark!
WINTER SOLDIER #6
Written by Ed Brubaker

Ed Brubaker is reunited with famed artist Michael Lark (DAREDEVIL) who joins for the Winter Soldier’s second arc "Broken Arrow" with original Winter Soldier artist Steve Epting taking the reins on covers! Winter Soldier finds himself on a twisted trail from coast to coast and past to present… chasing the insane man who will become his worst enemy. And an inciting incident you won’t forget!
One of our favorite series also gets a fresh start in Journey into Mystery #639! The "Exiled" crossover with New Mutants got mixed reviews so we’re happy to have this title back on its own again with Little Loki getting mixed up in who knows what.
Also, it may not be a part one, but people are definitely getting into Garth Ennis and Goran Parlov’s Fury Max series, and this week sees the release of Fury Max #3! The one comment that keeps coming up about this series is how "Punisher-y" it is… notice I said comment and not complaint!
But, pack to part one’s, Hulk starts a new story arc called "Mayan Rule" in Hulk #53! Not entirely sure what it’s about but I have to assume it’s about the presumed end of the world. Also, I totally dig the cover! (More on that tomorrow… ?)
Finally, there’s Dark Avengers #175. Yes, you read correctly! What was once Thunderbolts is now Dark Avengers! Hearkening back to Norman Osborn’s Dark Reign. Which I’m sure is a welcome change, as Thunderbolts had been floundering a bit. We’ll see where the new title goes!
DARK AVENGERS #175

Dark Scarlet Witch. Dark Spider-Man. Trickshot. Ragnarok. …Luke Cage?!
