Thanks for pressing play!

Again, like last week, not a lot of storylines to cover but we will be talking about Spider-Man and what's going on in his universe this week as well as we finally get the second part of the Spider-Verse storyline!

The biggest book to hit the shelf this week is going to be none other than Star Wars #1! At this point there are least 100 variant covers available for this first issue alone! Are you going to be getting Star Wars #1 this week, which will probably be the biggest hit of the year starting already here in January?

We also get to see a team up with with Conan and Red Sonja, a 4 issue miniseries that will be going on this week written by everyone's favorite writer, Gail Simone! Also, a fan favorite videogame series is getting a new update this year and we are celebrating that with the Mortal Kombat X #1 heading to the shelf this week before the new video game hits the market!
