The big events of comics continue this Wednesday, June 1

To ease anyone's fear, we want to let you know that Memorial Day has not impacted new books this week, so comics will come in as normal this Wednesday. We look forward to seeing you!

Shocking revelations and universe altering events continue this week in DC's Flashpoint #2 by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert! No matter the cost, Barry Allen has set out to discover where his world's super heroes have gone. Meanwhile, on the other side of the ocean, the clash between Emperor Aquaman and the pirate Deathstroke comes to a head. This Wednesday also sees the release of several mini-series that take a closer look at the faces of this world's heroes and villians, and as a bonus, each of these titles comes with a special pin to celebrate the event! In Flashpoint: Abin Sur, The Green Lantern #1, Abin Sur survived the crash landing on Earth and must sacrifice everything he holds dear to protect his sector. In Flashpoint: Batman, Knight of Vengeance #1, Wayne spends his nights protecting the streets as Batman, but at day, he spends his time running Wayne Casinos! Flashpoint: Secret Seven #1 sees a team divided as one betrays all of them. With the worlds greatest heroes gone or preoccupied, it is up to Traci 13, a 15-year-old-girl, to save the world in Flashpoint: The World of Flashpoint #1, but does she have what it takes to save a planet on the edge?

Marvel's big event also continues this week in Fear Itself #3 by Matt Fraction and Stuart Immonen. As the world panics in fear, Sin launches one of the worst attacks ever seen on American soil. Meanwhile, Loki has a scheme to end all schemes. All of this and major hero falls at the hands of the Serpent! You won't want to miss this shocking ending. Also on shelves, Fear Itself: The Deep #1 finds Namor hunted by one of Sin's hammer-wielding minions, and with the X-Men also under attack, Namor turns to an old friend, Dr. Strange, for help. Strange must form a team with enough power to stop the spread of fear already gripping the mainland to the sea, or the world may not have any hope left.

Frank Cho with co-writer Doug Murray and artist Axel Medellin bring you a new sci-fi epic this week in 50 Girls 50 #1. The crew of Space Vessel ESS Savannah and its beautiful crew are on a journey to discover the wormhole that will take them home, but along their way, they will encounter many exotic world and hostile aliens! Sci-fans will want to make sure they take a look at this book.

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!)
