We hope you're sitting comfortably, because today brings some comic book news of epic proportions. We’re talking a mash-up of Marvel's biggest superheroes, what is being teased as the X-Men's last-ever mission, and if that wasn’t enough, a whole new Sabrina the Teenage Witch series to get excited about.

Let's kick off with a meeting of Marvel minds – Wolverine and the Hulk! – who are teaming up for HULKERVINES, a three-issue miniseries that will see them coming after a dangerous creation made in their name.

According to a Marvel release, the two superheroes are joining forces again to defeat Weapon H, a clone made up of their combined DNA, who Marvel comic fans will already be familiar with from his standalone series.

While these two heroes have of course crossed paths in comics before, the idea of them coming together to basically fight off a single cloned version of themselves promises to be an action-packed adventure not to be missed.

Writer Greg Pak is working with Weapon H artists Ario Anindito (for #1 and #3) and Guiu Villanova (for #2) to bring you the sure-to-be dangerous combo next February. Check out the cover below from Greg Land.


Next up, Marvel's not done with you yet. Because they also unveiled that today is the return of the Uncanny X-Men, who are back with a new ongoing series being billed as perhaps their final mission, bringing together nearly every mutant left on earth in a story that threatens to destroy them.

Making the magic happen in the 10-part weekly series are writers Ed Brisson, Kelly Thompson, and Matthew Rosenberg, along with artists Mahmud Asrar, R.B. Silva, Yildiray Cinar, Elizabeth Torque, Leinil Francis Yu, Pere Perez, and Giuseppe Camuncoli.

The story is said to leave the X-Men disassembled with, naturally, apocalyptic consequences. The first issue is on sale in comic shops now. To get a taste of the action, check out the launch trailer below.

Finally, for those of you who found The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina a little too... well, chilling, we have some good news. Archie Comics revealed on Twitter today that they are launching a brand new Sabrina the Teenage Witch comic book series, and according to a preview from Entertainment Weekly, it’s going to be a lot less scary than the Netflix version.

The new five-issue Sabrina the Teenage Witch miniseries will be written by Kelly Thompson and illustrated by the husband-and-wife team of Veronica and Andy Fish, and is said to focus on more everyday teenage troubles like romance, friendships, and rivalries, as opposed to dark baptisms and the like. Judging by the animation however, our heroine still looks more Kiernan Shipka than Melissa Joan Hart, but with a slightly chirpier disposition.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch #1 will be available in comic books on Mar. 27.
