New comics for Wednesday, June 8!

Hitting shelves this week, Ghost Rider #0.1 kicks off the new series written by Rob Williams and art by Matthew Clark. During the events of Fear Itself, a mysterious figure surfaces to offer Johnny Blaze what he has always wanted: a chance to no longer be the Ghost Rider. However, will he be able to accept this Faustian pact? The decision he makes will determine the fate of his and everyone in the Marvel Universe's souls. And if he does make this choice, someone will have to take his place, but who will it be? Make sure you check out the end of an era for Blaze and a new direction for the Ghost Rider!

Fear keeps spreading after the events of last week's Fear Itself #3. In Fear Itself: Deadpool #1, like a true business-minded mercenary, Deadpool sees the events of Fear Itself as an opportunity to make some serious cash! Is he one of the worthy? Did he truly receive one of the Serpent's hammers? Perhaps, he just bedazzled a regular hammer. While wise-crackin' Wade does his thing, Man-Thing goes mad as the world is consumed by fear in Fear Itself: Fearsome Four #1; She-Hulk, Nighthawk, Frankenstein, and Howard the Duck join forces to stop him, but in their effort, they too become monsters of fear! Problems for our Marvel heroes don't stop there. Also out this week, Fear Itself: Spider-Man #2 finds Spider-Man fighting to protect the people of New York City from themselves, but to make his job even more difficult, Vermin has popped his vile head into the picture.

In preparation for the new film, DC presents two of five one-shots. Green Lantern Movie Prequel: Kilowog (written by Peter Tomasi and Adam Schlagman) and Green Lantern Prequel: Tomar Re (written by Marc Guggenheim)  tell the story of the Kilowog and Tomar Re before the events of the film. Anyone looking forward to the film should give these one-shots a look.

If you're like us, you can not get enough of Flashpoint, and we're in luck this week! First up, we have Flashpoint: Emperor Aquaman #1; no longer the hero we once knew, Aquaman is going to flood the world and rule it! In Flashpoint: Citizen Cold #1, Citizen Cold loves someone he should not, but that surely won't back fire on him. Will it? Then, in Flashpoint: Frankenstein and the Creatures of the Unknown, a group of monsters must find their maker to survive. And last but not least, in Flashpoint: Deathstroke, The Curse of Ravager #1, the dreaded pirate Deathstroke will stop at nothing until he recovers his lost treasure. Don't forget! All of these issues come with an exclusive free pin when purchased!

The new miniseries American Vampire: Survival of the Fittest #1 comes to you this week by the ongoing series' writer Scott Snyder and artist Sean Murphy. Vampire hunters Felicia Book and Cash McCogan go behind enemy lines in Nazi-occupied Romania to discover a rumored vampire cure with the help of the secret organization Vassals of the Morningstar. However, their history with Skinner Sweet is about to make the mission even more difficult than imagined. Fans of the regular series will not want to miss this.

Also keep your eye out for the next chapter in the 'Death of Spider-Man' this week in Ultimate Spider-Man #159!

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!)
