THE NEW ONGOING UPERIOR SPIDER-MAN TEAM-UP #1 IMPRESSES THE HECK OUT OF US, AND DELIVERS EVEN MORE SUPERIOR SPIDEY AWESOMENESS THAN WE THOUGHT POSSIBLE!
We've been loving all the new Superior Spidey-related stuff coming out of Superior Spidey month this July, but we have to say: SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN TEAM-UP is, by far, the cream of the crop.
There's a twist on this one... and it's so freakin' cool, so darn neat, that we don't want to give it away here. All we'll say is that when you see what it is your response will only be "well, that makes perfect sense."
Chris Yost, who's no stranger to the Spidey books, with his stellar runs on series like SCARLET SPIDER, does an incredible job here in making the book unique, relevant, and strong in it's own identity separate from the regular SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN ongoing.
In issue #1, we're taken across the entire Marvel Universe, as Superior Spider-Man goes against heroes and foes you wouldn't necessary think he'd rub shoulders with.
As more and more people begin to sense a change in Spider-Man, he realizes that his only defense is a good offense... and perhaps, he needs his own Team-Up allies who're on the same page as he is.
Sharp storytelling with crisp, energetic artwork make Superior Spider-Man Team-Up a must-read, and we cannot wait to see where this series goes next.

THE TRINITY WAR CONTINUES WITH JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #22 THIS WEDNESDAY, AS THE ROAD TO VILLAINS MONTH CONTINUES!
Man, we are so hooked on the TRINITY WAR stuff, it's not even funny. This crucial event that leads up to the upcoming VILLAINS MONTH event for DC, where the entire DCU is put under the control of it's most hardcore bad guys, has been incredible.
Imagine Marvel's CIVIL WAR but with the icons of the DC Universe at war with one another.
League against League, and of course, there's some serious manipulation going on from everyone's favorite bad guys.
In the first chapter, things get off to an insane start as Superman uses his heat vision to do what Superman had never done before: kill.
In an act of impulsive defense, he grabbed Doctor Light, and literally incinerated the character's head in one zap... and thus, began the TRINITY WAR.
Now, with loyalties in question, and the nature of metahumans being seen as a threat by many, the heroes of the DCU are at war with one another in a major way.
In this week's third chapter, a member of the Justice League defects to the mysterious, occultism-fueled JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, but what does Constantine know about this murder that he isn't telling? And what dark secret does one of our Leaguers hold that could turn the tide of this Justice League War?
Find out in this week's JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #22.

Now, the lore and continuity of MASS EFFECT is explored in an all-new way by MASS EFFECT 2 & 3 lead writer Mac Walters, featuring an enigmatic "agent", and revealing teh story of her time spent on the violent mining colony of Themis.

HUNGER #1 -- IN THE FALLOUT OF AGE OF ULTRON, AND ON THE ROAD TO INFINITY, COMES THE WORLD-EATER HIMSELF.. GALACTUS: ON A MISSION TO DEVOUR THE MARVEL MULTIVERSE!
As the Marvel Multiverse began to emerge in the final chapters of AGE OF ULTRON, something.. interesting.. occured: the World-Eater himself made a grand return, and this time, he's set to do more than just devour worlds, he's out to consume entire universes.
Galactus has always been one of the coolest Marvel bad guys, and in the limited series, HUNGER, which ties into the upcoming INFINITY event, we see him taking on a role very similar to that of the Anti-Monitor in the DCU, as he tears a vicious path through the various Marvel realities... and consumes each one.
We, of course, know that one of those universes is the long-running ULTIMATE universe... could this be the end days of the ULTIMATE line, or will this be where we see characters from the Ultimate Universe merge into the regular 616 Marvel realm?
Either way, this book looks fantastic, and we cannot wait to see the direction it's heading this Wednesday.
BATMAN / SUPERMAN #2 -- THE KILLER NEW TEAM-UP TITLE EXPLORING THE VERY FIRST MEETING OF BATMAN AND SUPERMAN IN THE NEW 52 CONTINUES!
Featuring the incredible artwork of JAE LEE!
We totally loved the first issue of BATMAN / SUPERMAN with PLANET HULK writer GREG PAK and BEFORE WATCHMEN OZYMANDIAS artist JAE LEE combining together to do an incredible job.
Now, we're stoked to see where the second issue of this exciting new ongoing series is taking us, as the earliest meeting of Batman and Superman leads them to EARTH-2, where they find familiar heroes.. who just so happen to be trying to kill them!
Folks: the storytelling on here is great, but let me tell ya: Jae Lee's art is off-the-chain, and is worth the price of admission alone.
A great, self-contained SUPERMAN and BATMAN title, we give BATMAN/SUPERMAN a high recommendation!
Wanna hop aboard? We've got issue 1 in stock now to catch you up to this week's #2.
ARMY OF DARKNESS VS. HACK / SLASH #1 -- REVIVAL creator TIM SEELEY brings his slasher-hunting femme fatale, Cassie Hack, into the world of DEADITES this Wednesday!
After the events of the HACK / SLASH series, Cassie Hack is doing her best to live a normal life -- but, a Deadite attack forces Cassie back into action, and this time, she's brought a friend.
Meet Cassie's new partner: Ashley J. Williams! Can the pair keep from killing each other long enough to quest for the stolen pages from the Book of the Dead? Will Ash get some sugar? And, who's gonna be shopping S-Mart when it's all over?
We love ARMY OF DARKNESS, we love HACK/SLASH, and we love Tim Seeley's work... so this one's a no-brainer. Snag yourself a copy this Wednesday.
HAWKEYE ANNUAL #1 -- Another dose of HAWKGUY awesomeness this month from MATT FRACTION? AWESOME!
We've been HUGE fans of Fraction's run of HAWKEYE, and we saw he was teaming up with the highly underrated, and uber-talented Javier Pulido (BATGIRL / ROBIN YEAR ONE) to deliver this killer HAWKEYE annual... we were already there!
In HAWKEYE ANNUAL #1, Kate Bishop heads to Los Angeles -- to get away from New York, life, and Clint Barton -- but not trouble!
Of course, Madame Masque is hanging out at poolside with the rich and famous as well, and that means some tense situations for Kate.
Who is Kate Bishop? Find out alongside Kate Bishop herself as this issue leads to a crucial status quo change for the HAWKEYE ongoing series.
STEAMPUNK AIR PIRATE AWESOMENESS CONTINUES IN WILD BLUE YONDER #2 THIS WEDNESDAY
One of our favorite new creator-owned series of 2013 has gotta be WILD BLUE YONDER, from STUFF OF LEGEND writer MIKE RAICHT and THE CAPE artist ZACH HOWARD.
Featuring some of the best artwork we've seen in quite some time, this series takes the steampunk airship genre into some crazy, awesome post-apocalyptic territory and leaves you on the edge of your seat.
As the newest recruit aboard an elusive solar-powered airship, Tug begins his training as a 'Gun.'
On the run from the Judge, Tug has just joined the sky's Most Wanted, but with the beautiful Cola as his pilot, and the ferocious Scram as his coach... what could go wrong?
Imagine a world where the Earth is dead, and all life must be lived in the sky.
No ground to be seen, just endless clouds, giant airships, and hovering air-stations acting as land bases.
That's the world of WILD BLUE YONDER, and it has us hooked!
Wanna get into it? We've got issue 1 in stock now to catch you up to this week's #2.

We absolutely loved the first issue of this series, and cannot wait to see what's in store with this week's #2.
Rucka and Lark hit a home-run, delivering a hyper-violent, gritty, real-world look at a grim sci-fi charged future where political boundaries have vanished, and wealthy family units govern the world.
And, each family has a 'Lazarus', a nearly unstoppable body guard who does their bidding.
Now, the Carlyle Family has been attacked by their enemies to the south, and Forever Carlyle's father suspects a conspiracy amongst his children.
To root it out, he sends his own Lazarus, Forever, into the arms of the enemy, Family Morray.

STAR WARS DAWN OF THE JEDI VOL.2 PRISONER OF BOGAN ARRIVES THIS WEDNESDAY
From the creators of STAR WARS LEGACY, John Ostrander and Jan Duursema, STAR WARS: DAWN OF THE JEDI is one of the best, and most interesting new takes on the STAR WARS mythos we've seen SINCE Legacy, and we know many of you will be stoked to see the second volume arrive this Wednesday.
Set thousands of years before the Clone Wars, and chronicling the very inception of the Jedi and the Sith, DAWN OF THE JEDI is a look at the birth of the Star Wars Universe from it's most absolute earliest point, and it's downright fascinating.
In PRISONER OF BOGAN, Xesh, a mysterious alien warrior, is enthralled with the madman Daegen Lok and his obsession with conquering known space.
Hunter teams are dispatched by the Je'daii to stop Lok and save the misguided Xesh, but they're not alone.
Xesh's former masters have sent their own hunter -- with orders to kill.
Wanna start the series? We've got volume 1 in stock now of DAWN OF THE JEDI to get you started!

We've been totally digging the NEW 52 NIGHTWING series since it's debut, and it continues to keep us hooked with strong storytelling, and solid artwork, so it's always good news to see the next trade of the series arriving.
As part of the epic BATMAN storyline, NIGHT OF THE OWLS, this second volume, collects issues 8-12, which tied into the NIGHT OF OWLS arc running through Snyder's BATMAN.
Dick Grayson must face a deadly adversary as he learns of his own connections to the mysterious Court of Owls; but even if he can stop an undead assassin, he'll still have to deal with an anti-Gotham City army -- and the mysterious Paragon.
More goodness, give it a shot this week at Third Eye!
