Writers have 1 issue to surprise experienced readers, entertain but not alienate new readers, & pacify ppl who will never read the book. GO!
If you lost your connection to Star Wars, two things will help: Any of the new Marvel Star Wars comics & The Clone Wars cartoon on Netflix.
I don't know NBA basketball, but Totally Awesome Hulk #13 explains who Jeremy Lin is & he is in the whole issue. Seems cool to me.
Here's what I know from Black Panther #6: @tanehisicoates writes a great Tony Stark & the last page will be of interest to lots of people.
All right. Captain America Steve Rogers #2 tells you everything you need to know. Want to know more? Avengers Standoff HC is this week too.
