When Ninjak #18 hits shelves in August, it's kicking off the time-bending The Fist & The Steel crossover, in which the Eternal Warrior teams up with Ninjak for futuristic immortal ninja action.
The stakes are high in August's Action Comics #692, as Superman faces a fateful decision to put a stop Doomsday (and we all know how that's worked out for him in the past). The second of the month's Action Comics issues from Dan Jurgens, Stephen Segovia, and Art Thibert brings the "Path to Doom" storyline to its conclusion that could spell the end of the world for someone.
Of course, stakes don't always have to be Doomsday-sized to feel like the end of the world, and a schism in Gotham Academy's Detective Club probably feels just as apocalyptic to Maps in August's Gotham Academy Annual #1, from writers Becky Cloonan and Brenden Fletcher, and artists Adam Archer, Michael Dialynas, and Christian Wildgoose

Earth 2: World's End will kick off in October, joining the publisher's already-running weekly series, Batman Eternal, and the weekly series The New 52: Futures End, which debuts May 3.
It's been a pretty... superior... week of news for Spider-Man fans. Following up on the recent solicitation of the upcoming The Superior Foes of Spider-Man series due in July, Marvel's just announced that Carnage will get his own five-issue miniseries, written by Kevin Shinick (Robot Chicken) and drawn by Stephen Segovia (X-Treme X-Men), starting in July...
As promised in a teaser image and press release from earlier this week, Marvel Comics announced today at WonderCon's "Talk to the Hat" panel the coming of X-Treme X-Men, a new ongoing series written by Greg Pak and drawn by Stephen Segovia...
Marvel closed out a week of tantalizing teaser imagery with confirmation that not only will Fantastic Four return for its 600th issue, but its spinoff book, FF, will also continue. Both series are written by Jonathan Hickman and are part of a mega-plot he's been constructing since he took over Fantastic Four in 2009 (one that our own David Uzumeri has been annotating prodigiously)...
