Beginnings and ends this Wednesday, November 3rd.

Jeff Lemire fans (and soon to be fans) rejoice. This is the week for you. After eight years, Superboy is finally back in his own brand-new ongoing series! Writer Jeff Lemire, creator of the hit book Sweet Tooth, takes Superboy on an adventure to a side of Smallville no one has seen before. With art by Pier Gallo, find out what mysteries lurk beneath the surface of Superman's home town and how they are tied to Superboy. Also on shelves this week is Jeff Lemire's Sweet Tooth #15

Attention Browncoasts! Keep your eyes out for the newest story in the Serenity universe: Serenity: Shepherd's Tale. This original, hardcover graphic novel written by Zack Whedon and art by Chris Samnee stars fan favorite Shepherd Book. Who was he before meeting Serenity's crew and how did he find God in a bowl of soup? Book's past is finally revealed in this action packed chapter of the Serenity saga.

Also out this week is the Absolute All-Star Superman HC by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely. This wonderful story brings to mind the Superman comics of the Silver Age as the Man of Steel battles several of his iconic villains before facing Lex Luthor's final revenge. Besides their amazing presentation, Absolute editions are well known for their bonus material, such as the sketchbook and more in the Absolute All-Star Superman.

Grant Morrison's run as writer for Batman and Robin comes to an end this week with issue sixteen. The final showdown between Batman and Black Glove is here. And Batman is looking for payback. Don't worry, the Joker and Professor Pyg will also be there. This will take readers into The Return of Bruce Wayne and the new status quo for Batman.

Also coming to an end this week is Spider-Man's Brand New Day in Amazing Spider-Man #647. As a Brand New Day comes to an end, a new tomorrow begins. With 101 issues under their belt, Spidey's writing team says goodbye in this triple-sized spectacular. Peter, his family, and his friends have been through a lot the past three years, but things are looking like they may get even worse for the Wallcrawler. Don't miss the issue that leads into the newest chapter of Spidey's history.

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!)
