New comics this Wednesday, March 2nd!

Marvel's first all ages graphic novel series under the Icon imprint hits shelves this week. Takio is Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's latest creator owned project since Powers about two adopted sisters. Like a lot of siblings, the sisters do not get along. One day, an accident gives both sisters superpowers, and they become the world's first actual superheroes! Follow along as they come to terms with these new powers and attempt to work together to save the world before dinner time. Fans of Bendis' Ultimate Spider-Man, parents, and kids should certainly give this book a look.

If that isn't enough, Bendis and Oeming's Powers #7 is out this week. This cop drama meets superheroes story pushes forward with the death of God. Yes, God, and it is up to Walker and Sunrise to investigate the case. Oh yea, Walker's old partner Deena Pilgrim is back and the reasons are sure to surprise you. While this is all going on, the new Retro Girl fights for her life against a deadly alien virus. That is a lot of action packed into this amazing series. If you have never checked the book out, do yourself a favor and pick up one of the trades.

Marvel's weekly book 5 Ronin #1 starts this Wednesday. Set in 17th century Japan, each book thrusts one of five heroes (Wolverine, Psylocke, Punisher, Hulk, and Deadpool) into a violent land during tumultuous times. This week, writer Peter Milligan and artist Tomm Coker bring you Wolverine, a Ronin out for revenge against those that have wronged him more times than he can remember. This invincible warrior is sure to settle the score in an epic clash of steel and superpowers.

Grant Morrison's Joe the Barbarian #8 is finally here! Join Joe and his allies as they enter the battlefield for the final showdown against Death itself. Sacrifices must be made in this amazing conclusion to one of the most talked about miniseries in comics this past year.

Fans of Malachai and Ethan Nicolle's Axe Cop are in for a treat this week with the launch of the new Dark Horse miniseries, Axe Cop: Bad Guy Earth #1! The police (you know, the real ones) have finally noticed Axe Cop and his partner Dinosaur Soldier, but they are not happy that our amazing duo is doing the police's job better. Axe Cop and Dinosaur Soldier are hunted as criminals, and pair of actual alien villains make there appearance and turn the army into actual bad guys. Can the police handle this on their own? Nope.

They're back! Writer Frank Marraffino and artist Fernando Bianco bring you Marvel Zombies: Supreme #1. The twisted science of Project Pegasus has infected the Squadron Supreme with a virulent zombie strain. Now, Jill Harper and her spec ops team have to keep the plague contained within the facility. As they fight for their lives, Harper discovers the Squadron were not the only test subjects, and this discovery may end up being the key to saving the human race.

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!)
