New beginnings this Wednesday, March 9th!

After seven years, Marvel revives CrossGen's hit comic Sigil with a brand new issue one this week. Writer Mike Carey (The Unwritten and  Age of X) and artist Leonard Kirk bring you the tale of a war raging through time on the battlefield of history. With the warriors in this epic clash at a stalemate, a 16 year old girl from South Carolina with a strange symbol on her chest may be the key to saving everyone or damning all of creation. Don't worry if you missed out on the original series, this new outing is meant for new and old fans alike.

Venom is America's new spider-hero, and he's getting his own book starting this week by writer Rick Remender and artist Tony Moore. Venom #1 picks up where Amazing Spider Man #654.1 left off with the alien symbiote in the U.S. military's possession and war hero Flash Thompson at the wheel. Venom, now a top covert agent, is ready to take on missions only he can handle, but can Flash handle the symbiote? See Venom like he never has been before.

Batman's globe trotting recruitment adventure picks back up this week in Batman, Inc. #3 by Grant Morrison and artist Yanick Paquette. This issue takes Bruce and Catwoman to South America in search of Gaucho, Argentina's Batman Incorporated representative. As always, nothing is as easy as it sounds as an unexpected adversary threatens to cut the trip short for this Bat and Cat.

Reign of Doomsday continues in Outsiders #37 this week. The Eradicator is up against the deadly Doomsday as Geo-Force, Katana, the Looker, Halo, and the Olympian's lives hang in the balance. All the while, Black Lighting and his Outsiders must choose between a life imprisoned or... Well, let's not ruin the surprise. Don't miss this issue as the Doomsday summer event grows ever closer.

Jason Aaron and Steve Dillon's Punishermax #11 is out and brings the long awaited conclusion to their Bullseye storyline.

The Age of X saga continues this week in X-Men Legacy #246 by writer Mike Carey and artist Clay Mann.

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!)
