Big changes coming this Wednesday, January 26

Hickman and Epting's "Three" story-arc draws to a close in Fantastic Four #587, but one member of the family isn't going to make it out alive. Special for this issue only, join us on Tuesday, January 25, for one of the biggest events to ever hit the Fantastic Four in history. That's right, you will be able to buy this book a day earlier than normal to ensure that nothing is spoiled. This issue is shipped in a black polybag to commemorate the event that is sure to change the future of the team. If you have missed any part of the story line, Fantastic Four #583, 584, 585, and 586 will all have new printings this week  to help you catch up, but these, and all other new comics, will be available on Wednesday as usual.

Kicking off the next, great X-Men epic, Age of X: Alpha #1 is out this week and will forever change the course of mutant kind. Writer Mike Carey brings you the story of mutant kinds' "final war." The last remaining group of mutants fight for their species' survival, but how far will they go? Fans of "Age of Apocalypse" will want to check this book out. Hitting shelves the same day: a new story-line starts in X-Men #7; Magneto #1, written by Howard Chaykin, tells the tale of a young Erik Magnus trying to gather mutants to his cause; and Uncanny X-Men #532, Uncanny X-Force #4, and X-23 #5 continue.

Have you ever wondered who would win in a fight: G.I. Joe, Ghostbusters, Star Trek, or . . . zombies? After ten years in the making, IDW's dimension-spanning Infestation #1 will finally answer your question. Something has gone wrong in the Zombies vs Robots universe, terribly wrong, and some of IDW's biggest realities are in trouble.

Also this week, don't miss these Marvel titles: New Avengers #8, Secret Avengers #9, Ultimate Comics Avengers 3 #6, Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #152, and Ultimate Comics: Doom #2.

On shelves from DC: Wonder Woman #606, Teen Titans #91, Justice League: Generation Lost #18, and Action Comics #897.

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!)
