Volume 3 - 1st printing. "Last Days!" Collects Black Widow (2014 6th Series) #13-20. Written by Nathan Edmondson. Art by Phil Noto. The world has turned against Black Widow. Her web is broken. It's all been worth it, though, because the path to Chaos is finally at her feet. But can Natasha still turn to the Avengers or S.H.I.E.L.D.? And how far can she travel her brutal road to the answers she needs, while still calling herself a hero? As Chaos looms, an enemy resurfaces with a surprising agenda, and Natasha gets an offer she can't refuse. This is it: Black Widow goes head-to-head with Chaos at long last! Then, at the end of all things, Black Widow finds herself unexpectedly connected to one of the darkest moments of her past. See how the first lines of red in her ledger were written.

Story and Art by Dan Parent. Cover by Fernando Ruiz & Various. Archie has received notice that he's been entered in a 'Best Boyfriend of the Year' contest. This may seem like a great thing for Riverdale's resident Romeo, but there's one problem: he's been entered by eight different girls - including Betty and Veronica! And here's the real kicker - every girl is aware of every other girl's involvement in this contest! Meet each one of Archie's dates one by one in the part one of this 10-part series, 'The Many Loves of Archie Andrews'! And that's only the beginning of a fun-filled comics double digest!

What It Is: Ray Willis is a broken man, a disgraced medical examiner making ends meet by preparing corpses at a funeral parlor. His scientific genius is being wasted...that is, until his estranged criminal brother Denny shows up on his doorstep, supposedly cleaned-up and proposing a once-in-a-lifetime partnership to cure not just cancer, but all disease. The catch? It exists within the DNA of superheroes. Collects all four issues of the critically acclaimed miniseries. Softcover, 128 pages, full color. Cover price $19.99.

REVIEW: 'Bonehead' #2 by Bryan Edward Hill, Rhoald Marcellius, and Sakti Yuwono

Bryan Hill pumps the brakes a little in the follow up to the fast-paced debut of 'Bonehead' with more great world building. The mystery surrounding Bonehead 56 deepens but we at least get some backstory and details about what his arrival means for a pair of brothers with opposing viewpoints.

REVIEW: 'Hit-Girl' #1 by Mark Millar and Ricardo Lopez Ortiz

Hit-Girl is most certainly back and as deadly and crazy as ever. She's gone international looking to fight injustice and find a worthy sidekick.

Score: ★★★★★ (5/5)
The retirement of Dave Lizewki as the original Kick-Ass has left a void in Mindy's crime-fighting life. Trying to recruit his replacement has been challenging to say the least. She's going to go it alone and taking her skills global as a cry for help leads her to Colombia.

Millar hits the floor running with a wild prison break, Mindy parting ways with an unworthy partner, and a grieving mother looking for justice. The sudden blitz back to the world of Kick-Ass is like comfort food for comic book fans. …
