FF #13


The pitched battle between the last remaining members of the Interdimensional Council -- amoral versions of the FF's Mr. Fantastic gathered from alternate universes -- and the Future Foundation extends through the Bridge and out of our reality... eventually spilling over into the world controlled by the Mad Celestials. And with every step, the War of the Four Cities comes closer... but, led by Valeria and Franklin Richards, the FF will not give up hope. They know that, as unlikely as it may sound... all hope lies in Doom!

Jonathan Hickman's history-making run on Marvel's First Family continues this week with FF #13, on sale now at Curious Comics!

Please Note: due to the Christmas holidays, this week's new arrivals are expected at Curious Comics on Thursday December 29. We apologize for any inconvenience.


Here's your chance to broaden your Dungeons & Dragons RPG campaign to include the most terrifying creatures... the most demented abominations... the most repulsively evil threats!

Featuring an uncomfortably detailed look at the nature of evil and the complex challenge of confronting the many dilemmas found within the deepest shadows, The Book of Vile Darkness is filled with malignant secrets that can inspire adventures or entire campaigns. Look for roleplaying encounters, adventure hooks, skill challenges, rituals, and lore for some of the most despicable creatures to infest any campaign world -- plus new character options for players who like to play on the dark side, and a full-color, double-sided poster map presenting iconic evil sites for heroes to explore.

The Uncanny X-Men have emerged from one of the most difficult trials they've ever faced -- battered, bloodied, and decisively split down the middle. While Wolverine has taken half of the team and returned to the ruins of the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters to start all over again, Cyclops leads a diminished nation of Utopia in a world that considers mutants to be a greater threat than ever.

This volatile situation becomes even more dangerous when the resurrected Mister Sinister gets his hands on the Golden Celestial, drawing the ancient and undying Space Gods to Earth to pass judgment upon all lesser species. If the X-Men were hoping for a chance to prove their good intentions to the planet, then this is it... but can even the world's mightiest mutants match the apocalyptic power of this cosmic threat?
