So something is going to happen in this week’s All-New X-Men #40 that is causing waves, but if you haven’t already heard, then I’ll let you read about it.

DC is all Convergence, so if you’re still buying into this story, then tread on. If you’re not, no one will think less of you.

Marvel wraps up “Black Vortex” and has a few Avengers related titles to go around this week, naturally since Avengers: Age of Ultron releases next week. Otherwise they have another chapter for their multi-title “Inhuman Error” story, more Star Wars, and a few Guardians books as well.

The independents strike again! I’m really excited to leaf through Uncle Scrooge #1 because I think that could be a really fun book. IDW also has a few other licensed books, Image has a nice selection this week, plus Sonic celebrates a milestone issue in Sonic Universe #75. Another nice week to unfurl the sales to titles that aren’t under the big two.

Uncle Scrooge #1 (IDW)

Writers: Jonathan Gray + Rodolfo Cimino, Artist: Romano Scarpa, $4.99

I’m pretty excited for this book. It’s classic Uncle Scrooge treasure-hunting stories, but new!

Empire Uprising #1 (IDW)

Writer: Mark Waid, Artist: Barry Kitson, $3.99

There was a previous limited series called Empire, which showed what happens when the bad guy wins. Empire Uprising flashes forward to a year after the villain has won to see how everyone is adjusting.

Guardians of the Galaxy/X-Men: Black Vortex Omega (Marvel)

 Writer: Sam Humphries, Artist: Ed McGuinness, $3.99

And that’s that. “Black Vortex” ends, though it’ll get overshadowed this week in terms of press, but it’ll be interesting to see if this has any ripples for the Guardians or the X-Men moving forward.

Deadly Class #12 (Image)

Writer: Rick Remender Artist: Wesley Craig, $3.50

Remender only has one book he’s contributing for Marvel during the Secret Wars jamboree, that means he is (ostensibly) free to explore and put his efforts into Deadly Class. Some new things begin with issue #12, which means things can really start to get wild!

Convergence: New Teen Titans #1 (DC)

Writer: Marv Wolfman, Artists: Nicola Scott + Marc Deering, $3.99
Writer: Marv Wolfman, Artists: Nicola Scott + Marc Deering, $3.99

I guess I might as well suggest one DC book this week (even though I nearly made it the Batman: Arkham Knight video game tie-in). What is working for this Convergence tie-in is original New Teen Titans writer Marv Wolfman penning this two-issue tale. Hopefully he’ll be able to get in some fun activities for the Titans before being obligated to link to the battle dome stuff.
