SWEET AS: The Top 6 From Marvel Comics' September 2014 Solicitations

When we Kiwis find something we like, we say it's 'Sweet as'. When I look at Marvel Comics September 2014 solicits, these six make the 'Sweet As' grade:


Poking fun at DC's linewide gimmick covers for the same month, Marvel's Deadpool dances while the house burns. Hilarious, p=but pretty on point too, the special cover will be available for every 52 covers of the regular version sold.

Marvel says: Flashback to the 90's as we learn the darkest secret of Deadpool's past! See the events Deadpool's friends learned about it Original Sin first hand! Guest-Starring 90's Sabretooth, 90's Alpha Flight, and 90's artwork!40 pages! (W) Brian Posehn (A) Scott Koblish

SPIDER-MAN 2099 #3 Miguel's uneasy arrangement with Alchemax lands him in a literal war zone! And his very existence is once again threatened when Tiberious Stone is taken hostage! Plus: a classic Spider-Man villain faces the future's Spider-Man! (W) Peter David (A) William Sliney

FANTASTIC FOUR #10 The fall of Reed Richards! A savage and strategic attack on Reed Richards! Can Wyatt Wingfoot save a self-destructive Johnny Storm? Sue Richards goes to Latveria to reclaim her daughter...and she'll take on Dr. Doom if she has to (continuing straight into this month's Fantastic Four Annual)! (W) James Robinson (A) Marc Laming

NEW WARRIORS #9 and 10 (W) Christopher Yost (A) Marcus To #9 It's the anti-buddy movie as odd couple Justice and Scarlet Spider hit the road together, heading for Houston, Texas. Scarlet Spider never wanted to be on a team, with... people. And this issue, he shocks no one by quitting! Can Justice convince him to stay? No! Can they dude-bond by fighting a hundred foot tall guy in a bear suit? Probably not!

#10 "Always And Forever" Part 1 The New Warriors take the fight to the High Evolutionary! For the fate of all things not human, the war is on! The biggest arc in the All-New New Warriors begins here, and not everyone will survive.

 SOUNDS AWESOME  STORM #3 Long ago, after she was worshipped as a goddess on the plains of Africa, Storm was stripped of her mutant powers and fell into deep depression. A brilliant inventor named Forge came to her rescue and nursed her back to health, showing her that she is so much more than her superhuman abilities. And a romance blossomed between them. But it was a love made to be broken... Now, years later, Storm has the powers and stature of a goddess once more, and she is reunited with Forge. But what does fate have in store for the pair this time? (W) Greg Pak (A) Matteo Buffagni.

 THE BEST OF THE NEWBIES  DEATH OF WOLVERINE #1 The weekly event starts here! 48 pages. "Three Months To Die," the loss of Wolverine's healing factor--all led to this, the single most important X-Men event of the decade. (W) Charles Soule (A) Steve McNiven
