Great New Comics for Wednesday, June 29

Marvel welcomes everyone to a new age this week in Iron Age #1 by writers Christos Cage and Rob Williams and artists Lee Weeks and Ben Oliver. Tony Stark is trapped in the past, and it's up to Iron Man to save the future. Tony's past self is too drunk, and his fellow Avengers think his story of a doomed future is a simple drunk rambling, so he must turn to Hank Pym, exiled Avenger. That's not all though! They also must enlist the help of the Avenger's greatest foe, Ultron! A second story finds Tony fighting along side Captain Britain for freedom from a totalitarian state London trying to make a 'cleaner' future.

After a long sabbatical, Eric Powell's Goon #34 finds its way back to the shelves this week! In the Goon's absence, a new, sparkly breed of horror has moved into town, and he is none to happy. When some of these gothy vampires summon the new generation for revenge on the Goon, he makes sure they learn how much he dislikes the new status qua of horror. With this issue, Goon will be back on its bimonthly schedule!

DC is back this week with a new round of Flashpoint tie-ins! First up, we have Flashpoint: Project Superman #1, by Scott Snyder, Lowell Francis, and Gene Ha. After experimenting on him for years, Neil Sinclair was driven mad and locked away. Now, after a strange event in Metropolis, Sinclair has managed to escape! Flashpoint: Hal Jordan #1, by Adam Schlagman and Ben Oliver, is up next! Find out what Hal Jordan's life would be like if he never got the ring. Both of those books come with a free pin! There are also two one-shots on shelves. In Flashpoint: Green Arrow Industries One-Shot, by Pornsak Pichetshote and Mark Castiello, Oliver Queen profits from war! Last but not least, Flashpoint: The Canterbury Cricket One-Shot, by Mike Carlin and Rags Morales, follows a man whose  amazing power is also his greatest curse.

Marvel also has a new issue of Ultimate Comics X #5 this week, along with the Mark Bagley variant of Ultimate Spider-Man #160!

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!)
