Avengers Vs X-Men #12 (of 12) — Writer: Jason Aaron; Pencils: Adam Kubert; Inks: John Dell with Mark Morales and Adam Kubert This may not be the best book of the week, but it’s the best seller, and it’s been surprisingly good — partly because the last few Marvel events, especially Fear Itself, lowered expectations considerably.
