Welcome to us joyously counting down the days until Captain America: The Winter Soldier lands in theatres for real and for sure. Because we’re ridiculous suckers for thematically appropriate hurrahs, we’ll be saluting the various leads this week as we continue into the second phase of Marvel cinematic madness.
So kick back, relax, and get your stars&stripes ready because we’re leaving no man behind.

One year ago, something awesome happened: the first issue of Sam Humphries’ Uncanny X-Force was released. To say we instantly adored it, wouldn’t fully express how much we loved that first issue and every issue since. We had no idea how much we would end up looking forward to it each month when we put together that initial What Are You Wearing? post to coincide with the title’s launch. It’s become a book that we spend far too much time telling each other how perfect it is, and how we often feel like it was tailor made for us. From featuring one of the most diverse teams in comics (including our girl Betsy!), to storylines that cover basically every end of the spectrum, to delving into who the characters really were — we loved every last bit.
Because the comic gods have seen fit to rip this book from our grasp (yes, we’re being dramatic), we’re honouring its end in the only way we know how: by dedicating this entire week to all things Uncanny X-Force. So here’s to Psylocke and Storm and Puck and Spiral and Bishop and Demon Bear and Sam Humphries, all the artists and colorists, and the editorial staff who made this book a reality. Nothing will be able to replace you on our pull list every month.

Much heralded as a leading lady Avenger, this week’s launch of Natasha Romanova in her own Marvel Now! title pleases us greatly. It pleases us so greatly that we’re kicking off the new year by joining the celebratory Widow Week, hosted by the ever excellent Fuck Yeah, Black Widow of dot tumblr dot com.
So kick back a chair and scrub that red off your ledger, because we’re going to play this spy game to win.

Welcome to Hawkeye Week.
In honour of the new story arc debuting this week, we decided to fly our purple pennants — a week in celebration of Matt Fraction and David Aja’s gentle maiden title onto her new voyage. (Spoilers: Clint Barton is the gentle maiden.) What can we say: we love what we like, and we just really, really like Hawkeye.
So get in the car, loser, we’re gonna class up this joint like Kate Bishop, party like Tracksuit Dracula, and make embarrassingly coordinated kitchenware like Clint Barton.
