FIRST LOOK: April 2009 Bonus Comic Book Previews

Take a look at these previews of your favorite Marvel books, coming your way in April!

DOCTOR DOOM AND THE MASTERS OF EVIL #4 (of 4) Written by PAUL TOBIN Penciled by PATRICK SCHERBERGER Cover by ROGER CRUZ She predates the birth of man. She manipulates matter at will. She can merge with the shadows. She's Selene, the original vampire, known as the Black Queen, and in her possession is something Dr. Doom desperately needs, but she's not going to give it up without a fight. Luckily for Doom, he's brought along a few friends, like Princess Python, Magneto, and a platoon of Sentinels reprogrammed into Witch-Hunters! 32 PGS./All Ages ...$2.99 MARVEL ADVENTURES SPIDER-MAN #50 Written by MARC SUMERAK & ROGER CRUZ Penciled by SANFORD GREENE & SONNY LIEW Cover by PATRICK SCHERBERGER Spidey celebrates his 50th issue milestone in true super hero style with a surprise party unlike any other. Too bad the hosts of this little get together are some of the webbed wonder's fiercest foes! Will our hero be able to defeat the new Sinister Six in time to blow out his candles? Or will he just end up with a face full of cake and a body covered in bruises? Make a wish, Spidey... it may be your last! 48 PGS./All Ages ...$3.99 MARVEL ADVENTURES SUPER HEROES #10 Written by TODD DEZAGO Penciled by DEREC DONOVAN Cover by CLAYTON HENRY "ANT-MAN is On The JOB!!" Well, he's LOOKING for a job, anyway...But his employment is put on hold when the insidious SANDMAN crosses his path-and ANT-MAN needs to pull out all the stops to defeat the Granular Goon! And, as ANT-MAN's popularity rises, so too do the suspicions of Vernon Van Dyne...! 32 PGS./All Ages ...$2.99 MARVEL ADVENTURES THE AVENGERS #35 Written by PAUL TOBIN Penciled by IG GUARA Cover by DAVID WILLIAMS Hawkeye needs a date for an Avengers picnic, but just once he'd like to meet a regular girl who doesn't punch holes through walls or jet off to Saturn for the weekend. But how does one go about meeting a normal girl when living the life of a super hero? The solution seems to be an online dating service called Lover's Leap, but when Hawkeye accidentally downloads a wealth of sensitive Avengers information onto the website, which (dang!) turns out to be a scam site run by Batroc the Leaper, it's going to take the combined fighting might of the Avengers to get Hawkeye out of this jam! Well, at least some of the Avengers. Please don't tell the others about this, okay? 32 PGS./All Ages ...$2.99 FRANKLIN RICHARDS: APRIL FOOLS! Written, Art & Cover by CHRIS ELIOPOULOS It's that time of year again. Springtime, baseball, April showers and most importantly April Fools Day! Franklin has a plan to make everyone in his family the butt of his practical joke, but the joke's on him. Join Franklin, H.E.R.B.I.E. and new addition, Puppy, in this all-new foolish special with stories to tickle your funny bone. Hey, wait--there's a giant spider on your shoulder! April Fools! 32 PGS./All Ages ...$3.99 MARVEL ASSISTANT-SIZED SPECTACULAR #1 & 2 (OF 2) Written by CHRIS ELIOPOULOS, JASON AARON, CHRIS YOST, CHRIS GIARRUSSO, ADAM WARREN, WYATT CENAC & BRIAN PATCHETT Art by JACOB CHABOT, RICHARD ISANOVE, JOH JAMES, CHRIS GIARRUSSO, TODD NAUCK & XURXO PENALTA Cover by DAVID WILLIAMS Rejects, benchwarmers, lovable losers, and might-be Avengers...assemble! In the beloved tradition of Assistant Editors' Month, we the staffers are sick and tired of our bosses telling nothing but Wolverine stories, Spider-Man stories, Captain America stories...and we're taking matters into our own oddball hands! Little guys can be heroes, too...and when this motley crew of misfits gets their shot - in stories featuring Elsa Bloodstone, American Eagle, D-Man, the daughter of Galactus, Mini Marvel cake-eating Hawkeye, Candidate Luke Cage, and more - it could be the start of something big! Don't miss this two-issue anthology of also-rans who might - just MIGHT - ascend to the A-list! (Fingers crossed. Really we're just hoping this doesn't get us fired.) 40 PGS.
