Moon Knight is back--and he brought new comics for Wednesday, May 4

The dynamic-duo Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev (Halo, Spider-Woman, and Scarlet)  tackle their newest project this week in Moon Knight #1! Marc Spector has packed his bags, moved from New York to Los Angeles, and started producing a successful television series. But don't think he has abandoned his alter ego. In fact, he now has more money than ever to combat villains flocking to the west coast to get away from the Avengers in New York.  Even though things are changing, some are bound to stay the same; Spector is still dealing with multiple personalities, but he may have figured out how to make them useful by channeling the personalities of other heroes like Captain America, Spider-Man, Wolvering and more! Can the new Kingpin of the west coast fight against a man who is never actually himself? Find out this week, as Moon Knight's latest adventure begins!

Fear Itself #2 is on shelves and picks up with Thor imprisoned by Odin as the Asgardians abandon Earth to deal with the embodiment of Fear itself. All of the world's heroes band together in hope of stopping the God of Fear, but when the Serpent's Hammer comes and summons the living avatars of evil, will the Avenger's and others even have a chance? Follow the action into Fear Itself: Home Front #2 as Speedball and Jimmy Woo and the Agents of Atlas each fight their own battles against the growing threat of Fear. Don't think it stops there though! Fear Itself: Spider-Man #1 by Christopher Yost and Mike McKone also starts this week. Spider-Man is running on empty as he attempts to protect the people of Manhattan as it is overtaken by Fear, but will he be able to overcome his own worse nightmares before it is too late?

The X-Men event of the 2011 is fast approaching, and Marvel aims to prepare everyone for it in X-Men: Prelude to Schism #1 by writer Paul Jenkins and artist Roberto De La Torre. With everything that has happened to the X-Men in the past few years, a break would seem in order for them, but not everyone (Wolverine) sees eye-to-eye after some of the choices made by their leader, Cyclops. This prelude to the big event aims to answer what it takes to be a leader and how it changes a person. Anyone looking to get into the X-Men should check this book out.

Some notable DC titles to keep an eye out for this week are Superboy #7, Batman Beyond #5, Secret Six #33, Adventure Comics #526, and more!

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!)
