New comics rampage their way to shelves this Wednesday, March 30th

The King of the Monsters is in town, and no one is safe, especially your favorite comic shop! This Wednesday, Godzilla destroys Dr. No's Comics and Games on our very own, exclusive cover of IDW's new series, Godzilla, Kingdom of Monsters #1! Writers Eric Powell and Tracy Marsh and artist Phil Hester bring the big green guy back to comics, and this time, he is bringing some of his famous Toho monster friends with him!

Nick Spencer's co-feature, 'Jimmy Olsen's Big Week,' from Action Comics is collected in this weeks Jimmy Olsen #1. But wait! Not only does it reprint the original four parts of the story, an ALL NEW 30-pages of story bring Jimmy's adventure to an appropriately crazy conclusion. Follow along as Jimmy tries to one-up his ex-girlfriend, Chloe Sullivan, as she spends a week writing a profile piece on one of LexCorp's young, big-shot employees. If bar fights with drunken aliens, craft time with Supergirl, and Jimmy Olsen: Space Warrior sound exciting to you, don't miss this one-shot!

Until now, much of the Age of X universe has remained shrouded in mystery. Writer Simon Spurrier and artist Khoi Pham bring you Age of X: Universe #1. The remaining mutants have all taken sanctuary behind the walls of Fortress X, but how did they get there and how did they survive extermination by the mutant hunting group known as The Avengers? This two-part series reveals the foundations of the Age of X storyline and takes a look at the Marvel Universe beyond the walls of the mutant fortress. X-fans should also watch the shelves this week for Cyclops #1 (taking a look at the man behind the ruby visor), Wolverine #7, and X-23 #8!

Jeph Loeb and Arthur Adams long awaited Ultimate Comics X #4 is out this week! During Ultimatum, Peter Parker's classmate Liz Allen disappeared. Now, Liz is back but with the vile Blob too. Join the Ultimate X crew as they set out for Southern California to find out where she has been and her connections to the big man.

Fans of Joss Whedon's short-lived series Dollhouse should keep an eye on the shelves for Dollhouse: Epitaphs. Show writers Maurissa Tancharoen and Jed Whedon are back after the the post-apocalyptic conclusion of the television series with artist Cliff Richards to bring you the continued story of three survivors  in a technological virus ravaged world. The tech used by the Rossum Corporation to create their "dolls" for the wealthy and powerful has been released on the world. With those affected by the virus turning into mindless butchers, a few who escaped with their minds join forces in hopes of taking Rossum down!

Mark Millar's Kick-Ass 2 #2 is finally here! Dave Lizewski, our masked hero, has inspired people to become their own heroes, and they are forming their own super hero group! Is this all too good to be true? Probably. Oh yea, Hit-Girl is along for the ride as well! Don't miss it!

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!)
