This week's issue of Cosmic Powers Unlimited features the Protectors of the Universe, as the Powers Cosmic (all of Galactus' former heralds) reunite after Silver Surfer witnessed the death of Galactus and Firelord helped Thor defeat Thanos.  Plus, in a special Protectors Spotlight, we see Adam Warlock choose a successor to his Soul Gem!

The Silver Surfer also appears in two issues this week.  First, in Silver Surfer: All The Years #1, as he is once again the herald of Galactus thirty years in the future.  Then, in Silver Surfer: Sins of the Father Part 2, when we learn new revelations of Norrin Radd and his parents as Silver Surfer walks the planet of New Zenn-La.

We also have a new issue of Thanos: Dead Men Tell No Tales, where the cosmic hierarchy meet to judge matters which will have a profound affect on the Mad Titan himself.  Plus, we have another edition of the Twilight War sequel War Waged At The Stroke Of Midnight - Part 2: Longest Night and our original fiction story War of the Blood Gods #10, which features the death of Thor, don't worry, it's not Marvel's Thor.

Check it all out, plus a new cover by Caleb, in this issue of Cosmic Powers Unlimited!  And PLEASE be sure and send us your feedback to all the stories at!  Our writers really appreciate your questions, comments, suggestions, and feedback.  Thanks and enjoy!
