A positive forecast for great books on January 19

It's time to celebrate the Ol' Shell-head's anniversary with the release of Invincible Iron Man #500! In this giant-sized issue, the series' award winning team, Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca, jump the series seventy years into the future as three generations of the Stark family face their biggest foe yet. While in the present, Spider-Man and Iron Man attempt to fill in the blanks of Tony's missing memories, and so much more. The future starts now for Iron Man!

Speaking of our favorite web-head, Amazing Spider-Man #652 marks the beginning of the "Revenge of the Spider-Slayer" story-line. After the return of the Hobgoblin in "Big Time," more of Spidey's rogues gallery is stepping out; Alistair Smythe, The Spider-Slayer, is back and has brought a slew of upgraded baddies, including Mac Gargan back as The Scorpian, to ruin Spider-Man's day, and everyone Parker knows is in danger.

Season eight of Joss Whedon's Buff the Vampire Slayer draws to a close with issue 40 this week. Buffy has traveled a long road home, but all is not safe just yet. Betrayal and loss faces the Scooby gang, and they will never be the same again.

Based on the hit video game series, Mass Effect Evolution #1 is a new story by Mass Effect 2's lead writer Mac Walters and John Jackson Miller revealing humanities first days of conflict on the galactic stage. Also, find out The Illusive Man's pivotal role in the whole thing. Fans of the series shouldn't miss this essential piece of cannon presented here for the first time! If that isn't enough, the Mass Effect Redemption TP is still available!

Also this week, superhero fans should keep an eye out for great titles like Batman #706, Brightest Day #18, and Wolverine #5!

Those looking for something a little different have The Boys #50, Scarlet #4, and Superior #4 to look forward to this week.

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!)
