    SUNDAY SLUGFEST: Uncanny X-Men #1

    Starting over with issue number one, this is a new beginning for Uncanny X-Men. Following the events of Schism, Scott Summers is solidifying his leadership over the mutants who remained on Utopia and reaffirming his commitment to protecting what's left of mutantkind. That doesn't mean, however, that Scott is planning for life on Utopia to be business as usual. He's set up the "Extinction Team," an elite team of mutants dedicated to protecting humanity -- while making sure they know to fear them.

    Dark Shadows #1

    "Evening at Collinwood..." That was the way so many episodes began, back in the heyday of the titular concept, with waves crashing on a rocky cliff, and a brooding house set back on the hill. The opening page instantly thrusts us back to that signature opening, immersing us in the old-fashioned world of the iconic supernatural soap opera.
