The House of Magnus controls all, having crushed all resistance to their reign. Magneto rules with an iron-fist, while his children and grandchildren live their lives as royals-with all the privileges and pit-falls that come with that title. But is Magneto's control as all-encompassing as it seems? And what happens to a conqueror when there is no one left to conquer?

NEW COMICS COST HOW MUCH?!?:  Here's the price point breakdown for the Week of 08/19/15. This coming week, there are 152 NEW COMICS shipping with six price points ranging from $2.99 to $7.99. The largest concentration of books, as always, falls into the $3.99 price point with all other price points trailing far off into the back. This week sees a stronger showing of $2.99 books attributable mainly to DC who is still "Holding the Line at $2.99" at least on their new titles. There's also a wider spread of price points indicating that different segments of the market are not adverse to exploring higher cover prices. Remember, no matter what the price point, you save 15% OFF of ALL of this week's new comics all week long only at Alternate Reality!
