New comics for Wednesday, October 27th!

This week marks the start of DC's original Earth One graphic novel series from some of the industries top creators. The series will present dramatic retellings of DC's legendary heroes set in current times and a world that has had no heroes before now. First up is J. Michael Straczynski's Superman: Earth One HC with art by Shane Davis and Sandra Hope. This original story asks the question: what would Superman's origin be like if it was introduced today for the first time? The basics are the same, but times have changed. With this all-new origin comes an all new villain. How will Earth's newest hero fair against this deadly alien threat? Find out this Wednesday!

Death is back, and I'm not talking about Nekron. Neil Gaiman's Death from the hit Sandman series is making an appearance in Action Comics #894 this week. After the events of last issue, Lex Luthor finds himself at Death's door. Go on a journey with her as she delves deep into the mind of one of the world's greatest villains, and in the process, learn how Death fits into the DC Universe.

Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips have brought readers some of the best in noir comics like Sleeper, Criminal, and Incognito. And this week, they continue that tradition with Incognito: Bad Influences #1, the second chapter in the smash hit super hero noir series. Zack Overkill is back, and he is going deeper into the criminal underworld than ever before. Will he be able to get out without being sucked back into a life he already escaped? If you missed the first series, the Incognito TP is available to help you catch up on this unique, pulp tale.

Also on shelves this week is Teen Titans #88. This issue marks a new creative team and a new direction for the series. Rediscovering their roots, Superboy, Wonder Girl, Kid Flash, Raven, Beast Boy, and Ravager rebuild their camaraderie while facing their newest baddies, the Feral Boys. But the Feral Boys have a secret that may keep the team apart. This is a great jumping-on-point for new and old readers as the new era of the Teen Titans begins.

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!)
