Jen Walters Faces Her Biggest Battle Yet in SHE-HULK 159

Jen Walters Faces Her Biggest Battle Yet in SHE-HULK #159!

It’s Jen vs The Leader!

New York, NY—October 13, 2017—The once-green (now gray) goliath otherwise known as Jen Walters is reclaiming her name in Marvel Legacy – starting in SHE-HULK #159! And series writer Mariko Tamaki is being joined by new series artist Jahnoy Lindsay to blast off this Legacy run.

Since Bruce Banner’s death, Jen has been going through her own issues as she attempts to get used to being Hulk again and regain control of her life. Now, she’ll face the classic Hulk villain The Leader… who is more obsessed with Jen’s Hulk persona than ever before, now that Jen has been changed by her previous adventures.

The Leader’s goal is simple–Kill Jen Walters… but is that even possible? And where does that leave Hulk?

A perfect jumping on point for fans old and new, don’t miss SHE-HULK #159, in comic stores this November!

Frenemies Are Brought Together in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL 23

Frenemies Are Brought Together in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #23!

The Merc with the Mouth teams up with the web-crawler for Marvel Legacy!

New York, NY—October 13, 2017—The tables have turned. No longer an Avenger, Deadpool is living a life of crime. There’s only one super hero who can guide him to the right path and that’s…Spider-Man?! That’s the Marvel Legacy story that will begin in November, when Robbie Thompson (Doctor Strange and the Sorcerer’s Supreme) teams with artist Chris Bachalo for SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #23.

The Merc with the Mouth and the webslinger may have their differences, but they’ve got one thing in common: they’re both at odds with each other. And despite Spider-Man’s best efforts, Deadpool is back to his old ways – he’s become an arms dealer in the absence of S.H.I.E.L.D.

But Spider-Man determined to bring his frenemy back to the right side of the law. And when a familiar villain from Spider-Man’s past makes an appearance, the two super heroes have no choice but to team up to save the world!

SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #23 arrives in comic shops this November!
