September 9th Brings Lotsa Great Comics!

It's a Batman trifecta this week, with Batman #703, Grant Morrison's Batman and Robin #14, and Neal Adams' Batman: Odyssey #3. (No Return of Bruce Wayne this week, but it's coming up soon!)

The X-Men continue to wage war against vampires in X-Men #3, while the Ultimate Avengers are facing the bloodsuckers in Ultimate Comics Avengers 3 #2, both on sale this week.

One of the year's best comics, Life With Archie: The Married Life, continues with the release of its second issue this week. If you think Archie is just kids' stuff, think again--this is well-crafted, compelling storytelling dealing with real-world problems as we see two possible futures--one in which Archie is married to Betty, the other in which he's married to Veronica.

September 9th is a great day for fans of classic comics material, too. Editor Steve Saffel continues his ambitious plan to collect every non-Marvel, non-DC Simon & Kirby story with the release of his second volume, Simon & Kirby's Superheroes, featuring hundreds of pages of S&K gems, including a previously-unreprinted Fighting American tale. Marvel prehero fans can get a heaping helping of Lee, Kirby, Ditko, and others in Marvel Masterworks: Atlas Era Tales of Suspense Volume 3 HC. Dark Horse continues their collection of rarely-seen Gold Key Silver Age series with Mighty Samson Archives Volume 1 HC. Charles Schulz's masterpiece continues in Complete Peanutes Volume 14: 1977-1978. John Buscema fans, take note--Conan: The Newspaper Strips is the book you'll want. And Al Williamson fans take note, X-9: Secret Agent Corrigan Volume 1 is the book for you!

These books, and many more, will be available as soon as we open the doors on Thursday, so come on by! (And if you want to get an idea what else you can expect, check out the covers below!)
