Daredevil returns this Wednesday, July 20!

Fan-favorite writer Mark Waid and artists Paolo Rivera and Marcos Martin bring the Man Without Fear back to comics this week in Daredevil #1! After the life shattering events of Shadowland, Matt Murdock has returned to Hell's Kitchen with a new outlook on life. No longer wallowing in self-pity and depression, Matt is going full steam ahead with life, career, and Daredevil. However, old friends and allies may not be able to forgive and forget his past transgressions as easily as he has.  There is also a new D.A. in town, and she might have an idea of who the Daredevil is. Waid takes Daredevil in a brand new direction with this double-sized first issue that will delight new and returning fans. Don't miss this classic Marvel character's big return.

Even with DC's line-wide relaunch fast approaching, they are not forgetting their past. In DC's new series DC Retroactive the company will take a look back at some of its key characters and tell a brand new story like they would have been told in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. In fact, they got the original writers and artists to come back and tell these tales! First up, DC Retroactive: Batman, The 70s #1 tells a new tale from writer Len Wein and artist Tom Mandrake and includes a reprint of a classic Wein story. Next, writer Cary Bates and artist Benito Gallego present a new Scarlet Speedster story in DC Retroactive: The Flash, The 70s #1, which also includes a classic story from the 70s also by Cary Bates. Last but not least, DC Retroactive: Wonder Woman, The 70s #1 is brought to you by Dennis O'Neil and artist J. Bone and includes a reprint of one of O'Neil's original 70s stories. This new series of retro books promises to be a fun read for all fans.

The war is over between the Green Lanterns, and War of the Green Lanterns, Aftermath #1 by Tony Bedard reveals the consequences. Hal Jordan faces an unclear future, and the lives of Guy Gardner, John Stewart, and Kyle Rayner are never going to be the same. Forget everything you knew about the Corps! The future of the Lanterns starts here.

Fans of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's The Boys are in for a treat this week! Ennis is reunited with Robertson on The Boys: Butcher, Baker, Candlestickmaker #1, the final miniseries before heading into the conclusion of the series. This new series takes a look at the origin of Billy Butcher and helps define who he is and why he does what he does. This is the story fans have been waiting for.
