AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #568-#569: This is the arc I've been waiting for. Norman Osborn and the T-bolts arrive to make Spidey's life a living hell. If that's not enough, Eddie Brock makes an appearance here too. The first two parts of a six-part story.
IMMORTAL IRON FIST: THE ORIGIN OF DANNY RAND: Matt Fraction returns to co-write the origin of Danny Rand. A must for anyone who's been following Immortal Iron Fist.
RUNAWAYS #1: The acclaimed series re-launches with Terry Moore at the helm.
MIGHTY AVENGERS #17: Brian Michael Bendis attempts to write himself out of a corner and make sense of Captain Marvel's return. Goooooood luck. He'll probably fare better with this issue's look at Marvel Boy.
SECRET INVASION: INHUMANS #1 OF 4: "Heroes" scribe Joe Pokaski attempts to write himself out of a corner (not of his own making) and attempts to make sense of Black Bolt's disappearance. The series itself doesn't interest me nearly as much as Marvel's answer to where the hell Black Bolt went and how long he's been a Skrull.
SECRET INVASION: THOR #1 OF 3: Matt Fraction attempts to write himself out of...well, no he doesn't actually. This story actually looks like a lot fun. The Skrulls attempt to take over New Asgard, putting Oklahoma in their sights. The only ones who can stop them are Thor and BETA RAY BILL~! Ye Gods!
SECRET INVASION: X-MEN #1 OF 4: Last time it was tie-in time, the X-Men got the snot beaten out of them by the Hulk. This time, they try their luck with Skrulls. This is another case of the main series not interesting me as much as potential answers. I especially would like to see them expand on the half-baked theory that the Skrulls played a hand in "M" Day.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #4: Is one of the team members a Skrull? Aw hell, I was REALLY hoping they'd keep this book far away from the Secret Invasion. This is a case where I'd have rather seen a tie-in.
NOVA #16: If we're dragging down one cosmic title, why not bring the other down too? Nova gets involved in Secret Invasion also, but this has a more interesting spin, as it features the original Super Skrull.
THUNDERBOLTS #123: The Skrull invasion hits DC (Washington, not the comic company), with everyone's favorite team of psychopaths and ne'er-do-wells the only force standing in their way.
There's a lot of stuff to look forward to, even stuff on the Secret Invasion end (although the bad looks REALLY bad). It comes in August.

This implies that Runaways #30 will be released at some point. Marvel says June 18, but they said May 21 a few weeks ago (and that was the second re-scheduling). I love Joss Whedon, but he ran that book into the ground. I eagerly anticipate the relaunch.
Marvel needs to keep MY THUNDERBOLTS way the fuck away from all that Skrull and Spider-Man shit. They are forcing me to NOT give them money.
I have been perfectly happy not reading or buying Amazing Spidershit since the BND crap started, and if they think putting the Thunderbolts in the book will change my mind (breath!)... they gots another think coming.
Originally posted by Teken347When it comes to GotG and Nova, DnA have my unquestioning loyalty.
Dan and Andy earned my loyalty with LEGION LOST, LEGION WORLDS, and thier LOSH reboot a few years ago... great stuff.
Ralph Steadman has done a truly wonderful piece on the death of his friend and collaborator (I had no idea he wrote so well): Click Here (enjoyment.independent.co.uk) Of particular interest is this section:
