Plot by EXCITER
Written by FRANK MILLER
Art by SEAN GORDON MURPHY
“TO UNCAGE A TIGER”
Steve Rogers has been busy trying to fix everything that went wrong during his absence (he was unstuck in time for over two years starting in CAPTAIN AMERICA #26!). One of the biggest injustices occurred when the Mandarin attacked and took over Madripoor while it was already besieged by Zemo’s forces (see TYGER TIGER, CHANCELLOR OF MADRIPOOR: WORLD WAR ZEMO #1-4). Since then, the island nation’s duly-elected leader, Tyger Tiger, has languished in custody as a political prisoner somewhere in mainland China. That ends now.
To liberate her, Captain America relies on his local asset: Sihing, a.k.a. Dog Brother #1. One of the Immortal Weapons, Sihing is champion of the “Under City” - a secret refuge for orphans and strays that the Mandarin has been trying to stamp out for years. Through his network of canines and street folk, Dog Brother #1 discovers that Tyger is being held in the Valley of Spirits, where the Mandarin first obtained his ten rings from a crashed alien vessel in 1942. That crashed vessel has since been converted into a nigh-impenetrable stronghold… But nigh-impenetrable isn’t completely impenetrable, so Captain America and Dog Brother #1 are going in!
Unfortunately for them, it’s not just a stronghold. It’s also the den of “He Whose Limbs Shatter Mountains and Whose Back Scrapes the Sun”: the enormous dragon Fin Fang Foom!

HULK IN HOLLYWOOD #4
Plot by EXCITER
Written by ROBERT VENDITTI
Art by ED McGUINNESS
“GAMMA BOMB”
Simon Williams has been bored out of his mind during the SAG-AFTRA strike, unable to promote his “groundbreaking” portrayal of Bruce Banner/the Hulk in the new Disney+ bio-series (he literally broke ground on several occasions). Fortunately, the studio has paid off the media shills! It’s certified fresh by Rotten Tomatoes! There’s a critic consensus!
“An updated take on the Hulk we remember, made for modern audiences, that is unwaveringly fierce and accessible!”
- Frontlines Entertainment
But wait, audiences have seen it too and the reviews are in! And, uhh… oh boy…
“Hulk Trash!”
- Pete P.
“Hulk just wants to be left alone, and after watching this… I feel that way too!”
- Clint B.
“Hey, big guy. Quality’s gettin’ real low.”
- Nat R.
“You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry… or at any other time either!”
- Tony S.
WTF?! The audience hates it! But it’s Simon’s magnum opus! This leaves him no other choice but to attack the audience personally! But can even Wonder Man physically confront over 9,000 disappointed amateur reviewers? Maybe he can just beat up the ones on YouTube? And is the actual Hulk going to let him lash out just because his feelings (and the network’s bottom line) were hurt? Probably not!
Hulk in Hollywood concludes here… and don’t count on a Season 2! (But hey, you never know!).

THE MIGHTY THOR #58
Plot by EXCITER
Written by ALAN MOORE
Art by MIKE MIGNOLA
“THE HEL-SWORN THOR”
Thor made a bargain with Hela. She resurrected the fallen god so that he might save his children and Midgard. That accomplished, now he must fulfill his end. The complete terms of the bargain are finally revealed…
Hela’s first demand was for a worthy heir, and Thor complied by impregnating her (in THE MIGHTY THOR #50). But pregnancy takes a toll even on Asgardians, and Hela’s now third-trimester condition makes her vulnerable. The afterlife has become predictably tumultuous. Uprisings abound, and the bargain requires Thor to act as Hela’s sworn instrument to quell the recalcitrant! Once Hela has given birth and fully recovered from the ordeal, Thor is free to return to the realm of the living. But can he survive that long?
Many of the recently fallen have eyes on Hela’s throne. The dark elf Malekith. The vampire god Ventharius. The supreme werewolf Alpha Prime. And perhaps worst of all, the elder god Chthon…
But the most immediate challenger belongs in Hades, not Hel, and has a personal vendetta against the Thunder God! Thor sent him to the afterlife, ripping him in twain after he was weakened by fighting Captain America (see WORLD WAR ZEMO #3 and THE MIGHTY THOR #52). Now he is stronger than ever, imbuing his legendary axe with hellfire and amassing an army of followers. Ares the God of War seeks vengeance!

SPELLBOUND #20
Written by Vita Ayala
Plot by H-E-D
Art by Peach Momoko
“Syntropy” – Interlude
NIGHTMARE
The quest for the Blue Flame is disrupted by a consequence of the Spellbound’s victory over Xorr!
Long ago, a cosmic entity called the Voyager, a rogue child of Eternity, was banished to the pits of the Cascade.
Over eons, they dragged their way back up. In the process, the Voyager spiritually fathered many children.
By energizing the Cascade, Xorr has inadvertently these Children of the Voyager with supernatural power!
In England, Nigel Orpington-Smythe of the Resource Control Executive (R.C.X.) has designated them “New Warpies”, and has begun to round them up.
In the modern Post-Brexit world, superhumans are a more valuable commodity than ever! Especially since Captain Britain, Betsy Braddock, is anything but loyal to the Crown.
When the Spellbound hear of this, they are aghast.
Topaz especially abhors the way the R.C.X. is separating children from their families.
It is, after all, very much the same thing that Taboo did to her!
Traveling to London, Topaz and her sisters meet one of the rare adult Children, an author named Sam Wantling.
She also meets Sam’s literary editor, Mona St. Croix, who bemoans being personally involved in the sort of superhuman drama that frequents her cousin, the mutant powerhouse Monet St. Croix.
It’s fun to hear about as a story at family reunions, less fun to live in.
The British Government is tearing families apart…
But can a coven, a washed-up author, and a literary agent really do anything to stop it?
