Calling all mutant-lovers!  This is the big X-Men event of 2010 -- X-Men Second Coming.  It kicks off in March with its own mini-series, and ties in to all the X-titles, such as Uncanny X-Men, X-Factor, X-Men Legacy, X-Force, and New Mutants.  The Marvel mutant universe is going to change forever based on this major event, so don't miss out!

Spandex City is making it easy for you.  Just add X-Men Second Coming (with all tie-ins) to your subscription list, and we'll automatically pull all the tie-in issues for you, even if you don't subscribe to those individual titles.

The Siege on Asgard has begun!

What's going on in the Marvel Universe?  The question is, what ISN'T?  SHIELD and Nick Fury are out of the picture, and H.A.M.M.E.R., SHIELD's replacement, is fully under the control of Norman Osborne (yes, the former Green Goblin!).  Osborne has created his own super-team of Avengers to protect America and the world, but how did he get Spider-Man, Ms. Marvel, Wolverine, and Hawkeye (amongst others) to be on his team?

Meanwhile, Thor has re-created Asgard floating 12 feet above the ground in the middle of Oklahoma.

Now, Norman Osborne's agenda is to lay waste to Asgard, and he is determined to pit superhumans against the Asgardian gods themselves!  Siege is the Marvel event of the year, and it has its own mini-series, along with numerous tie-ins across titles such as Dark Avengers, Thunderbolts, Ms. Marvel, Invincible Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor.

Siege Issue#1 hit the shelves last week, along with many of the tie-ins, but we''ve still got them here at Spandex City, so you won't miss out on any of the action!  Also, if you need to get caught up, we've also got the Siege Prelude trade paperback in stock and on sale.  It contains the most essential parts of the back-story to this huge event, incuding the formation of the Dark Avengers.

To get in on ALL the Siege action, including all tie-ins, just click here.

If you just need the 4-issue Siege mini-series without the tie-ins, click here.
