~~~ MARVEL SPOTLIGHT: NIGHTSIDE #1


NIGHTSIDE #1
COVER BY TOM DERENICK
ROBERT WEINBERG/TOM DERENICK


THE SCOOP: Award-winning novelist Robert Weinberg brings an all-new tale of mystery and horror to Marvel!


THE STORY: Her name is Sydney Taine, and she is a detective by trade. But her investigations -- and her clients -- are far more dangerous than those of an ordinary private eye. Her work takes her into the darkest corners of society -- to those places most people don't even know exist. Into the Nightside. She moves in a world of warring factions of supernatural creatures that call themselves "The Others." They appear to be human, but behind the facade lie thirsts, passions and powers far beyond any normal human's. For you see, they've lived among us since before recorded history. Joining her is her partner, Key "Ape" Largo, whose incredible intellect and heart are hidden in a massive body. Together, they stand between us and the forces of darkness concealed under the shade of night! To best bring this shadowy vision to life, artist Tom Derenick will illustrate the series in gray tones. The result is a unique and disturbing experience in horror!


WEINBERG SPEAKS: "Sydney Taine is a woman who walks the narrow path dividing good from evil, the gray line that separates the daytime from the Nightside. She's a detective, and she knows a lot of secrets concerning the living and the undead. But no one knows very much at all about Sydney other than that she solves crimes that ordinary crime solvers can't. The Others avoid the police and politicians at all cost. Taine is one of the few humans they trust, and some of them wonder about her. A few elders speculate behind locked doors that perhaps Taine is yet a third life form, a race called the Players. Could all life on Earth, both Humans and Others, be mere pawns in a vast game for unknown stakes played by a select few like Sydney Taine? When asked, Taine laughs and walks away. But she never answers."


THE FORMAT: The debut of this four-part, monthly mini-series is 32 pages, with ads.

100 GREATEST MARVELS #5
Months ago we asked you: "What are your favorite Marvel comics of all time?" Now, after endless hours of tabulations, discussions and all-out arguments, The House is ready to release the results! This issue contains choices 9 to 6 ... but what stories are they? The countdown has begun -- so get ready to experience the best of the best!


AVENGERS #47
COVER BY KIERON DWYER
KURT BUSIEK/MANUEL GARCIA/BOB LAYTON
"The Kang Dynasty" continues! In the midst of global war, at the heart of the siege on the Master of the World's stronghold, it's a romantic interlude between Warbird and the Scarlet Centurion -- possibly the one man she hates most!


BANNER #4
PAINTED COVER BY RICHARD CORBEN
BRIAN AZZARELLO/RICHARD CORBEN
What's one life when balanced against thousands? That's the question Doc Samson must answer now that he's got his old friend Bruce Banner down for the count! Who will be the ultimate casualty of war in the escalating battle between Samson and his own monstrous alter ego?


BLOODSTONE #1
COVER BY MICHAEL LOPEZ
DAN ABNETT & ANDY LANNING/MICHAEL LOPEZ/SCOTT HANNA
Growing up was tough for Elsa Bloodstone. Her mom was a nerdy archeologist, she was constantly moving from place to place searching for the next ancient wonder, and she never knew anything about her father ... until today! What do you do when you discover that your dad was the legendary monster hunter Ulysses Bloodstone -- and that he died doing what he loved best? You take up the mantle and kick some major monster butt ... without your mom finding out, of course! Fans of Indiana Jones, Lara Croft or Buffy will definitely dig the hot hero called Bloodstone! With Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning providing the never-rest-for-a-moment story, and beautiful artwork by Michael Lopez, this adventure will be a lighthearted romp through the world of horror and the supernatural! And a character-design help from Alex Ross never hurts!


THE BROTHERHOOD #6
PAINTED COVER BY GLENN FABRY
X/LEONARDO MANCO/JIMMY PALMIOTTI
Transcript of an Interpol emergency-line tape: "My name is Tanya. I am a mutant and a soldier of the Brotherhood. This is a message for Malcolm Reeves, the man who I once thought of as my father. Daddy, you lied to me. Lied about everything. About who I am, about who you are ... about my mother! The world is full of too many lies ... too many liars! Today, a cell of the Brotherhood lashed out at the liars. Many were killed -- men, women and even children of the lie. Unfortunate, but this is what the lies beget. The revolution has begun. We will meet again, daddy. And then the lies will end. Long live the Brotherhood. Long live the revolution!"


ORIGIN #3
COVER BY JOE QUESADA
PAUL JENKINS/ANDY KUBERT
Wolverine's tale takes on an added dimension as new details are revealed about the mysterious man named Logan! What new secrets will be revealed in this issue? Everyone is going to be talking about the revelations made in this amazing series -- and this issue's secret could be the one to top them all!


SPIDER-MAN'S TANGLED WEB: GENTLEMEN'S AGREEMENT
COVER BY LEE WEEKS
BRUCE JONES/LEE WEEKS/JOE RUBENSTEIN
In the years Charlie Clemmens has steered his cab through the city's shadowed streets, he's seen a lot of strange things. But it's what Charlie sees on this rainy, moonlit evening that changes his life forever. See, Charlie knows something a lot of folks would love to know -- a big secret about a certain red-and-blue phantom -- and this knowledge just might save his life!


UNCANNY X-MEN: POPTOPIA
COVER BY IAN CHURCHILL
A new era dawns for the Children of the Atom -- with Joe Casey (Adventures of Superman) and Ian Churchill (Wolverine) at the controls! Get set for a new lineup (did someone say Chamber?), new costumes (leather, baby), new villains (Mr. Clean is a dirty man) ... and one shocking kiss (between Jean Grey and Wolverine)! Everyone's buzzing about the X-Men revamp -- now, with this reprint of Uncanny X-Men #394 to #399, you can see what all the noise is about!

But can he save Viper from certain death at the hands of his old adversary? Or will his arranged marriage end in death?


X-FORCE: NEW BEGINNINGS
COVER BY MIKE ALLRED
Sex. Money. Fame. Power. Is this an episode of Behind the Music? No, it's X-Force, the book that dares to ask the question: OK, so what if a group of mutants "crossed over" and were accepted as media stars? What if they actually realized Professor X's dream? Hint: It ain't pretty! Reprinting X-Force #116 to #120 in one volatile volume!


X-MEN UNLIMITED #33
PAINTED COVER BY MICHAEL KALUTA
They say every dog must have its day... and this day belongs to the dirtiest dogs the X-world has to offer! Prepare yourselves for six totally unscrupulously evil, slime-infested tales (that are just plain wrong and may leave you feeling a wee bit ill), starring all those X-villains you love to hate! Take a wild ride with Sabretooth! Tackle the Blob! Get cozy at the Hellfire Club! Daydream with Mastermind! Vacation with Magneto! And last, but certainly not least -- get fixed up with a Sentinel! Each and every story is guaranteed to be a bloodbath filled with murder and villainy of the highest order!
