Hey there readers and welcome to our Media Month of May. I generally say “Metal Month Of May” but that is for the musical reports and not the Pop Culture stuff. So before I get started I need to ask you readers if you have seen “Avengers: Endgame” yet or not. I just saw it this past Monday and was blown away by the spectacle and how they closed up the first chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I will not spoil it for any of you of course but do your best to avoid the social networks and pretty much anything that shares news because there are spoilers everywhere. Now let’s get down to business with the May first issues and special editions coming from the Marvel Comics side of the fence.
SAVAGE AVENGERS #1: The most savage, most unkillable team of characters in the Marvel Universe is assembled! Wolverine! Venom! Elektra! Punisher! And in their midst – Conan the Barbarian! Conan has returned to the Marvel Universe and his new adventures begin here. What is the City of Sickles? Who is the Marrow God? How is the Hand involved? The roughest and most dangerous characters rumble through this new title starting with…Conan vs. Wolverine? ’Nuff said.

If the gods are going to stop Malekith’s invasion, the Black Bridge must fall. With her son missing and husband injured, Lady Freyja must take up the challenge herself. But she won’t go alone.
