Carnage on the shelves October 20, 2010!

He's back! Carnage, one of Spidey's most psychotic enemies, has returned to cause trouble with our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man and invincible Iron Man! But something isn't the same this go around. With the symbiote's last host dead, how did Carnage survive, where did his new powers come from, and who is the woman now in control of Carnage, . In Carnage #1, Zeb Wells, writer, and Clayton Crain, artist, aim to bring back the craziest symbiote around in a big way and explore facets of the character never touched before. Trade paperbacks are also available to catch up on Spidey and Carnage's earlier matchups.

Millar's New York Time's bestselling comic is back this week! Kick-Ass 2 #1, previously premiering in the first sold-out issue of the comics mag Clint, which we still have copies of, picks up with zero-turned-hero Dave Lizewski facing a world he helped to create: a world of super-heroes. But he begins to wonder if that is such a good thing after all. Join Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl for their next big adventure!

Stan Lee's newest generation of heroes begins this week with the first issue of Stan Lee's Soldier Zero. Stan and writer Paul Cornell team up to bring you the story of a galactic war brought to Earth's doorstep. Luckily, an alien weapon of war binds itself to wheel-chair bound Stewart Trautmann, war veteran and astronomy lecturer, making him the only defense for the planet: Subject Zero. Be sure to check out the first of BOOM! Studios and Stan Lee's new heroes.

Also this week, Bruce Wayne's comeback in the DCU continues in two Bruce Wayne: The Road Home one-shots starring Catwoman and Commissioner Gordan. With Catwoman having already mourned the death of Bruce and Gordan growing accustomed to the new face under the cowl, how will they handle Bruce's return? Can relationships remain the same? Find out as the road stretches on.

'Tis the season for Halloween specials, and DC doesn't want to disappoint. The DCU Halloween Special 2010 is a spooktacular look at some of your favorite heroes paired with DC's scarier crowd of heroes and villains. If that isn't enough, we have many other creepy books and games that will keep you in the Halloween spirit.

Speaking of Halloween, we still have some of our Halloween Comic Packs available. Each pack contains ten issues of all age comics. At only $1.99, this is a great alternative or supplement to all of the candy you will be giving out on the 31st.

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