First announced at New York Comic Con, Marvel is excited to announce an additional series of one shots on sale this February – including the return of Ziggy Pig and Silly Seal! Frank Tieri (Wolverine, Space Punisher) and Jacob Chabot (Marvel Super Hero Adventures) will bring back the comedy duo in an all-new adventure, while Eisner winning writers David and Maria Lapham (Stray Bullets) and Luca Pizzari (Weapon X) will share an Old West tale in THE GUNHAWKS #1!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: While I am stoked about Marvel’s anniversary I am not too sure that I will be picking up these special editions for my collection. Of course I’m saying this now but if I like what I see on the racks then I will grab them just the same. What about you folks do any of these three issues spark some interest in your collector’s brain? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time around.
