Do you like Marvel Comics? Do you like Variant Covers? If you answered “yes” to either or BOTH of those questions, this is the week for you!! HULK GRAND DESIGN MADNESS 1 = 3 Covers! KNIGHTS OF X 1 = 7 Covers! THOR 24 = 8 Covers! AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 = 13 Covers! That’s right, this week Marvel has you covered!
Also, JUSTICE LEAGUE #75 has 6 covers, but that doesn’t play with the Marvel theme, so we had to leave it out.

And it’s a GREAT week for Chicago Graphic Novel Creators! DAVE SCHEIDT has AGENTS OF S.L.A.M. and LUCY KNISLEY has APPLE CRUSH! And we love them both!!

—SPOTLIGHT BOOK—
•AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 1 (Marvel)
Peter is on the outs with the FF. He's on the outs with the Avengers. He's on the outs with Aunt May! No one wants to see Spider-Man - except for Doctor Octopus. All that, and what does Tombstone have planned? Just in time for Spider-Man's 60th Anniversary, a new volume of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN begins, and 2022 is going to be the biggest year for Spider-Man EVER! Don't believe us? We brought John Romita Jr. back JUST FOR THIS!

—NEW GRAPHIC NOVEL OF NOTE—
•AGENTS OF S.L.A.M. (Oni Press)
Enter the wrestling ring in this all-new graphic novel from (Chicago’s own) Dave Scheidt and Scoot McMahon! The Agents of S.L.A.M. aren't your average professional wrestlers. They're led by the fearless Bruno Bravado and work for the president of the United States to protect people from all kinds of threats-both on Earth and in space! And they've just been joined by their newest recruit, Katie Jones, twelve-year-old wrestling vlogger who just might know more about wrestling than the wrestlers themselves!

—NEW COMICS OF NOTE—
•NAUGHTY LIST #1 (Aftershock)
I had a family once. A wife who loved me...a child we loved together. That's all gone now, been gone for hundreds of years. All because of that damn star. My name? It depends on where you live. Some call me Kris Kringle, others Papa Noël, but my real name is Nicholas Sinterklass, and this is the story of what happens when you steal my Naughty List. From the mind of Nick Santora (The Sopranos, Law & Order, The Fugitive and Prison Break) comes the Santa Claus origin story we're sure you've never heard before.

•BLOOD-STAINED TEETH #1 (Image)
Christian Ward, the Eisner Award-winning co-creator of ODY-C and Invisible Kingdom, returns to Image for an ongoing, fast-paced 100 Bullets-style crime saga with fangs!

After all, immortality isn't cheap.

Merlyn and King Arthur are now in control of Lunatic Citadel. Furies the size of Sentinels raze villages to the ground in their hunt for the "witchbreed."
