Hi. I meant to get a newsletter out this week, because I've been so excited about the two comics I have hitting stores. But it was my youngest kid's birthday yesterday, so instead the work got turned off for a bit. Even more so than usual, it's been a week where you wanna hold your kids close. I hope you've been able to do the same.

JANE FOSTER TAKES THE SPOTLIGHT!
She once famously wielded Mjolnir as Thor, Goddess of Thunder. Today, she guards the worlds of the living and the dead as the winged Valkyrie. Now, those two versions of the same mighty hero somehow find themselves face-to-face, in a desperate bid to save the soul of Jane Foster.

Jane Foster feels almost like one of my kids at this point too. She and I have had a pretty wild run together. This week, I was thrilled to work with artist Javier Garrón and colorist Brian Reber to bring you AVENGERS #56, the next chapter in the saga of the Mighty Jane. A saga that somehow just keeps getting bigger and bigger as it goes. Don't know about y'all, but my Jane Foster toy collection is growing by the week.

VARIANT COVER BY TAKASHI OKAZAKI
To finish his war once and for all, Frank Castle is molding the ninjas of the Hand into his own army of unstoppable killers, by teaching them the Way of the Punisher. The secret lies in a story from his past that he's never revealed to anyone: the story of Frank's first kill.
40 PGS./Parental Advisory …$4.99
In PUNISHER #3, the dark journey through the mind and murky past of Frank Castle reaches a particularly revealing chapter: the untold story of Frank's first kill. This is a pivotal moment in all sorts of ways for young Frank, and we'll continue to explore how the trauma of this particular incident would haunt his life and decisions for years to come. For my money, the story of the Punisher should always be fundamentally about the repercussions of violence, and that's most assuredly the story I'm telling here. A story that unfortunately never loses relevance.
