Go Batty for Comics on 10/13

Bat fans, this is the week for you. At long last, Bruce Wayne continues his journey back to the DCU in Batman: Return of Bruce Wayne #5, with art by Ryan Sook! Bruce is transported to Gotham City's gritty past as a private detective searching for his way home. This is the penultimate issue leading to Bruce's return to present time, but how will his return affect the rest of the Bat Family? Batgiril, Batman & Robin, Outsiders, and Red Robin each have their own problems to handle in these four Bruce Wayne: The Road Home one-shots.

Speaking of returns, zombies are popping their heads outta the graves this week. You were hungry for more of the Blackest Night, and DC doesn't aim to disappoint. Find out more of the story in Untold Tales of Blackest Night. This stand alone issue will deal with some of the darkest stories never revealed in DC's blockbuster event. Don't miss it.

If super zombies aren't your thing, Kirkman's zombie epic Walking Dead continues in the sixth over-sized hardcover for the series. These wonderful hardcovers are great for fans both old and new; each book collects twelve issues and their covers and includes bonus material not seen in the regular issues and trades. Also this week, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are back on their most frightful case in the Victorian Undead Special. They thought the zombie menace was gone, but a series of murders seems to say differently. But what does Dr. Jekyll have to do with it this time? Those are enough undead books to shake a shotgun at!

After bringing us the average boy turned hero in Kick-Ass and the world's worst villain in Nemesis, Millar is back this week with artist Leinil Francis Yu for his all-new super hero series, Superior. See how the hero Superior changes the life of former star-student Simon Pooni after he develops multiple sclerosis. In the making for nine-years, Millar claims this is the "nicest" hero book he could write, so if the darker tones of his previous kept you away, give Superior a try.

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!)
