On sale in November is Vengeance #5, the penultimate chapter of the once-seemingly innocuous (no tie-ins, no events, no major characters) Marvel Comics miniseries by Joe Casey and Nick Dragotta that has turned out to be one of the year's most critically acclaimed superhero stories. Featuring warring factions of teenage heroes and villains in a plot driven by a mysterious conspiracy that goes all the way back to World War II, Vengeance is a meditation on the unequivocal nature of youth and the young's compulsion to best their elders, as entertainingly expressed through the most graphically brazen, sexy and conceptually wild superhero book Marvel has released in recent memory.
