First up, Marvel made a big announcement this week, revealing that artist Ardian Syaf has been fired after including hidden anti-Semitic and anti-Christian messages in his artwork for X-MEN GOLD #1. In more cheerful Marvel news, NICK FURY #1 hits stands this week, featuring the one-eyed head of S.H.I.E.L.D. redesigned as a James Bond-style superspy.

Over in DC, we’ve got two major new Batman releases. BATMAN #21 kicks off the highly anticipated storyline “The Button,” a 4-part crossover with THE FLASH. ALL-STAR BATMAN #9 presents the grand finale of the “Ends of the Earth” storyline, as Batman comes face to face with his ultimate foe. Meanwhile, in SUPERWOMAN #9, Lana Lang is revived at the expense of her powers, leaving the mantle of Superwoman in question.
