A heck of a good week for comics this Wednesday, March 23!

Clive Barker, one of the most well known names in horror, and Boom! Studios are bringing Pinhead back to comics this week with the help of writer Christopher Monfette and artist Leonardo Manco in Hellraiser #1. Barker takes on writing duties once again to bring the next official chapter in the saga that will change the Cenobites forever: Pinhead's final story! Fans of Barker's original novella and film and horror fans alike will not want to pass this book up. As a bonus, a ten-page back up story written by Larry Wachowski, co-writer and director of The Matrix, is included in this huge 40-page premiere issue!

The streets of Gotham are safe once again with the release of David Finch's awaited Batman: The Dark Knight #2. Confronting the Penguin in his search for Dawn Golden, Bruce's childhood friend, leads Batman down a darker road than ever before. Faced with this, The Dark Knight must turn to the demon Etrigan for a favor that is not without a price. Also out this week, Grant Morrison's Batman Inc. #4 takes Bruce back to Gotham for a team-up with Batwoman. 

Two more of Marvel's new-reader-friendly Point One books hit this week. First up, Captain America #615.1 finds Buck Barnes on trial while the need for a Captain America is greater than ever. Who will take up the legendary shield and become the newest Captain America? Keep an eye out for these other Cap books this week as well: Captain America and Batroc, Captain America: Man out of Time #5, and Captain America #1 70th Anniversary Edition, presenting the classic first issue by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby.

The second Point One book this week is Thor #620.1 by writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning and art by Mark Brooks. Questing for immortality, the Grey Gargoyle sets his sites on obtaining godhood in Asgard, but Thor is there to stop Gargoyle in his tracks. However, will Asgard be the same after the battle between these two powerful foes? This is a great time to start reading Thor as it makes the transition into Journey Into Mystery #622 and Mighty Thor #1 in April.

Also out this week, Green Lantern #64 and Green Lantern Corps #58 continue the War of the Green Lanterns!

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!)
