Unlimited Highlights: Staff Picks

Give thanks with these five digital gems from Marvel Digital Comics

By Marc Strom Every week we'll pick a handful of awesome comics from the thousands available through Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited. From creator spotlights to editor's picks and more, this'll be your spot to find something new and cool. With Thanksgiving just a day away, the Marvel.com staff has chosen five comics they're particularly thankful for from the digital vault. So take a break from preparing your Thanksgiving feast with this week's Unlimited Highlights and dig into these five digital gems, all available right now on Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited.

FOUR (1961)

FANTASTIC FOUR (1961) #51 "The Thing takes center stage in 'This Man, This Monster,' one of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's greatest stories from their run on FANTASTIC FOUR! All Benjamin J. Grimm ever wanted was a little peace in life-well, that and to change back into his more human self. But this story proves that it's not a rocky orange hide that makes someone a monster, but rather what they do. This Fantastic mini-epic reveals just how truly heroic the bashful, blue-eyed Thing really is, and how much he means to the rest of the fabulous FF." - John Cerilli, Director of Content

X-MEN #183

UNCANNY X-MEN #183 "Colossus and Kitty Pryde end the first phase of their tumultuous relationship in this heart-wrenching classic, 'He'll Never Make Me Cry.' After Peter breaks up with Kitty, the young heroine finds solace in her teammates, while Wolverine sets out to teach Colossus a lesson he'll never forget. Plus, this issue features the greatest barroom brawl to grace the pages of a Marvel comic, as Colossus and Juggernaut literally bring the house down in a no holds barred free for all. This is the X-Men at their best, True Believer-action-packed and emotional at the same time." - Marc Strom, Marvel.com Editorial Intern


THANOS QUEST #1 "What kind of warm-up does a villain need before going out and killing half the universe as a gift to Death? How about rounding up six gems as accessories for a totally sweet new glove? If that sounds easy or silly, then you're in for a surprise with THANOS QUEST. In the prequel to the mad god Thanos' genocidal rampage in INFINITY GAUNTLET, Ol' Purplepuss outwits, overpowers and outlasts a handful of universal elders in order to gain their all-powerful Soul Gems. A tale of bloodlust, brutality and twisted love, THANOS QUEST is one of the fines comics from the '90s." - Ryan Penagos, Marvel.com Editor


STORMBREAKER: THE SAGA OF BETA RAY BILL #1 "For years Beta Ray Bill, the horse-faced alien equivalent of Thor brought to four color life by Walt Simonson back in the '80s, played a noble second fiddle in the titles of his 'brother,' but I'm thankful that in 2005 writer Michael Avon Oeming and artist Andrea Di Vito helped the wielder of Stormbreaker strike out on his own in search of adventure! In the aftermath of Ragnarok, Bill finds himself a surrogate thunder god without a country, and takes to the stars to revisit his origins and search for his destiny. Over the course of his quest, BRB runs afoul of the mighty Galactus and finds himself in the fight of his life with the fate of his long-lost people on the line! Beta Ray Bill is a highly underrated character with a heart of gold and a mallet to match-thanks for giving him the chance to show it, sirs Oeming and Di Vito!" - Ben Morse, Marvel.com Assistant Editor


THE MARVELS CHANNEL: MONSTERS, MYTHS, AND MARVELS #3 "This is one of those issues that are just fun to read. A 'show' that tries to disprove a legendary Marvel figure such as Galactus is pretty bold if you ask me. Regardless, claiming that Galactus is really a fat man named Cletus living in a trailer park is just plain awesome. Add some bad dramatization actors, Silver Surfer as a bible salesman, a little Dr. Strange mind trickery and we've reached a new level of greatness. Finally, the Super Stuff super hero accessory polish ad at the end puts the icing on the cake. I just never bought the whole Galactus thing anyway. This issue won't disappoint." - Harry Go, Digital Trafficking Coordinator
