Action, danger, comics! New books for Wednesday, April 27

Superman finally returns to Action Comics this week with the release of issue #900! Over the past year, Lex Luthor has been on a quest for the mysterious black energy spheres. Now, everything comes to a head in a showdown between Superman and a cosmically powered Luthor! This 100-page giant not only brings the Man of Steel back to the title but also sets the stage for an epic story coming this summer. Along with regular writer Paul Cornell, guest writers Richard Donner (Dir. of Super: The Movie), David Goyer (Writer of The Dark Knight), Damon Lindelof (co-creator of Lost), and more join forces to help celebrate this landmark issue.

Abbey and the rest of the Danger Girls are back in Danger Girl and The Army of Darkness #1 by writer Andy Hartnell and artist Chris Bolson. After the girls learn of the reappearance of the elusive Book of the Dead, they quickly discover it has fallen into the wrong hands, so they set out to stop whatever evil may come of it. On their quest, they encounter Ash, a man who has given life and hand to make sure the horrors of the book never see the light of day.  Action, adventure, and witty banter! What more can you ask for? Fans of either series should definitely check this book out.

Marvel's Point One project rolls on this week in the pages of Avengers and Secret Avengers. In Avengers #12.1, Bendis and Hitch prepare new and old readers for the upcoming events between Marvel's favorite superhero team and the Intelligencia. There is also the little mystery of the disappearance of Spider-Woman. In Secret Avengers #12.1, by writer Nick Spencer and artist Scot Eaton, Steve Rogers' elite secret team of heroes has been revealed to the world. Now, they are in a race to save their compromised superhuman assets around the globe before it is too late. Also out this week is Secret Avengers #12 by Ed Brubaker.

Flashpoint draws ever closer, and Hot Pursuit's secret will be revealed with the release of Geoff Johns' Flash #11 this week!

Also out this week from Marvel, keep your eyes on the shelf for these hit-series follow up issues: Venom #2 and FF #2!
