In Marvel news, we got some important Twitter info about the return of Marvel’s first family. Marvel tweeted a photo of the Fantastic Four, but with one mysterious element out of place: The Thing is wearing a “2” on his belt instead of a “4.” What could this mean?! We can’t say for sure, but Fantastic Two really doesn’t sound quite right, does it?

Marvel’s EDGE OF VENOMVERSE #1 releases this week. Each issue will feature a Marvel character contending with the Venom symbiote. First up is X-23 as she battles the symbiote for her very soul! Also this week, it’s a battle between Marvel’s favorite R-rated antiheroes with the release of DEADPOOL VS. PUNISHER #5. Which will prove more deadly, Punisher’s bullets, or Deadpool’s painful quips?!

In DC this week, it’s a double Wonder-Whammy of Wonder Woman news! James Robinson, Carlos Pagulyan and Emanuela Lupacchino are taking over the main Wonder Woman comic with its 31st issue, featuring a brand new storyline exploring the first meeting between Diana and her long-lost brother Jason! Meanwhile, famed Wonder Woman writer Gail Simone is returning to the character with a six-issue Wonder Woman/Conan the Barbarian crossover comic! 

In DC/LOONY TUNES news, it looks like Elmer Fudd is hunting a brand new animal. This one’s wearing a cape and cowl and doesn’t much like guns. Batman writer Tom King presents BATMAN/ELMER FUDD SPECIAL #1! Meanwhile, the two biggest, baddest, looniest gunslingers in the West team up in JONAH HEX/YOSEMITE SAM SPECIAL #1! It’s a good old-fashioned Western standoff, DC/LOONY TUNES style!

From Image Comics, THE WALKING DEAD’s most notorious psychotic bat-wielder is back! That’s right! Negan’s swinging good ol’ Lucille again, thanks to a hardcover collection that will collect every issue of his spin-off series, “Here’s Negan!” THE WALKING DEAD’s #1 nut case will be bludgeoning his way onto shelves this October!
