Nuke Me with the New!

Welcome to Nuke Me with the New: a site dedicated to Marvel's New Universe line of comic books from the late 1980's. If you're not familiar with the New Universe -- how'd you get here? -- I suggest you read the introduction. If you start there, you'll find a link or two at the bottom of each page to guide you through the site.

It's been a long time! Sorry, I took a bit of a hiatus. But then Mark Davis, formerly of, found me and invited me to the Marvel Comics New Universe Fans group on Facebook. So I've been doing some updates to the Checklist. But what you really need to know is that this week Secret Warps: Arachknight Annual #1 shipped. It contains Supreme Seven, mashups of the Squadron Supreme and New Universe characters. The characters first appeared on the final page of Secret Warps: Ghost Panther Annual last week and it looks like they might continue into Secret Warps: Iron Hammer Annual #1 next week. Thanks to Josh Deck for the pointer over on the aforementioned FB group!

Wow, long time, no news. Such is the hazard of having a web site devoted to a defunct property. But shipping today is The Official Handbook Marvel Universe A To Z Update #4, which contains an entry for the Star Brand.

Shipping this week is the Psi-Force Classic trade paperback containing Psi-Force #1-9. You can also find newuniversal: shockfront #1 on the stands and you might want to check out Amazing Spider-Man #559. It contains a visual gag of "Starbrand Coffee," a parody of Starbucks with the Star Brand logo. Thanks to Dave Van Domelen for mentioning it in his weekly capsule comic reviews.

Out last week was Exiles: Days of Then and Now, a one-shot celebrating 100 issues of Exiles. Included in it is an appearance by Jenny Swensen and the MAX armor, presumably from the same version of the New Universe the Exiles went traipsing through during their World Tour.
