Ultimate Comics: Ultimates #8

He was a nightmare born of a decades-long attempt to replicate the Super Solider serum and the desperation of a scientist driven to extremes by jealousy and anger... and in an instant, the Hulk was born. He was the first threat the Ultimates ever assembled to face, and his muddled history is still a dark cloud hanging over their team. As the Ultimates struggle to maintain order as the Children of Tomorrow, the Celestials of Xorn, the Eternals of Zorn, and the US Government all maneuver for positions of power, the last thing they need is a wild card like the Hulk running around... but that's exactly what they've got!

Marvel's Ultimate version of the Avengers continues to turn out some of the best stories in their history, as writer Jonathan Hickman keeps up the pace and breaks all the rules!

Is This a Zombie? Volume One

Things seemed to be going pretty well for average teenager Ayumu Aikawa... right up until a homicidal maniac killed him, that is. Things got really bizarre after that, especially when a necromancer reanimated his corpse and brought him back from the dead. But before he could even begin to come to terms with his new post-living existence as a zombie, he accidentally swiped the powers, frilly dress and pink chainsaw of a magical girl. Throw in a vampire ninja and a few menacing demons and -- well, you probably get the idea. How can a zombie possibly be expected to solve the mystery behind his own death with all of these insane distractions?

The screwball comedy manga Kore Wa Zombie Desu-Ka? comes to English audiences this week when the first volume of Is This a Zombie? hits the shelves on Wednesday March 21 at Curious Comics!

Star Wars Omnibus: The Other Sons of Tatooine

Tatooine -- it's been said that if there is a bright center to the universe, this is the planet that it's farthest from. Jawas and Tusken Raiders prowl the deserts, and gangsters rule the spaceport towns... and if you're young and bright and want a future away from endless sand and moisture farms, you'll take just about any ticket off-planet you can find. That's exactly what Biggs Darklighter did when he signed on with the Rebellion... and that's also what his friend Tank Sunber did when he joined the Imperial Army. These are the very different untold stories of two of Luke Skywalker's greatest childhood friends -- the other Sons of Tatooine!

Augmenting himself with even more cyborg technology, he has added additional robotic arms to his frame and connected his mind to an army of semi-autonomous Octobots. He has ramped up his criminal activities, and now commands a virtual army of super-villains. Now, the preparations have been made... the pieces are in place... and the final stage in the most ambitious plot of his life is about to begin. Whatever else happens, one thing is certain: the world will never forget the name of Otto Octavius -- the one and only Doctor Octopus!

When the Scarlet Witch used her reality-warping powers to wipe all but a few mutants from the face of the Earth, the world was changed forever. Wanda Maximoff disappeared after the fall of the House of M, but no one forgot about her... and some never stopped looking for her. Among these were the Avengers, hoping to locate a fallen comrade -- and the X-Men, looking to bring the woman responsible for the sudden decimation of their species to justice. But as two of the Young Avengers seek answers to their own mysterious past, they discover very personal reasons for finding the Scarlet Witch. Are Wiccan and Speed really Wanda Maximoff's long-lost children -- and will their search for answers spark a war between the Avengers and the X-Men?
