Our big feature this issue takes a closer look at Marvel's Avengers, and new hero Ms. Marvel makes the cover. While subscribers get a unique Ms. Marvel design the retail edition features six collectible versions featuring Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Hulk, Thor, and Ms. Marvel.

“At first we didn’t even want a gun!” explains Typhoon Studios' co-founder Alex Hutchinson. “We set ourselves an early goal of having other tools that were more interesting or more useful than the gun.”

This is just one of the unique ideas behind Journey To The Savage Planet, the upcoming indie adventure from a team consisting of former Batman Arkham, Far Cry, and Assassin's Creed  developers. You can read the full interview in OPM#169, out now. As you can expect, the team's previous games combine to create something truly unique, read about it this issue.
