Never fear! New comics are here for Wednesday, July 6!

I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe fourth of July! A quick note, comics will NOT be delayed this week because of the holiday. The books will be on shelves this Wednesday, July 6 when the doors open at 11 a.m.

Two of the Marvel universe's favorite clawed heroes return in James Palmiotti and Joseph Michael Linsner's Wolverine and Black Cat: Claws 2 #1! Picking up right where the first series left off, Black Cat and Wolverine have barely had a chance to relax from their encounter with Arcade and White Rabbit before it starts all over again. After the two villains escape their exile in The Savage Land, Wolverine and Black Cat are back on their trails, and we are sure to get a great no-holds barred battle between the four in this new Claws Adventure.

Magneto has reformed and join the X-Men, but when he goes to save a young mutant in trouble, he accidentally sets off a series of events that will explore the evil of the Marvel universe like never before in Vengeance #1 by Joe Casey and Nick Dragotta. Find out who the new Teen Brigade is and what the Brotherhood wants with the Young Masters of Evil! If that isn't enough, the Red Skull is somehow pulling the strings from beyond the grave. Evil is afoot, and vengeance is not far behind.

DC's Flashpoint #3 hits shelves this week, and I know I can't wait to see what happens after the shocking ending of the last issue. Also, keep your eyes out for several of these Flashpoint tie-in series: Abin Sur, The Green Lantern #2; Batman, Knight of Vengeance #2; Secret Seven #2; and The World of Flashpoint #2!

Marvel's Fear Itself #4 continues it's reign of fear this week. After the loss of one of their own, the Avengers must stand against the Serpent as it grows ever stronger. The action doesn't stop there; the X-Force must stop the hate group The Purifiers as it tries to 'save' as many souls as it can before the end of the world in Fear Itself: Uncanny X-Force #1 by Rob Williams and Simone Bianchi. There is not rest for Wolverine as he fights against a mercenary black ops group called STRIKE and tries to protect his reporter girlfriend, Melita, in Feat Itself: Wolvering #1 by Seth Peck and Roland Boschi. Also, make sure you don't miss Fear Itself: Youth in Revolt #3 on shelves this week.

Fans of the hit web comic Penny Arcade are in luck! Penny Arcade TP Vol 07, Be Good Little Puppy is out and collects an entire year's worth of hilarious comics with commentary from the creators, Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik!

Remember, comics will be here on Wednesday, July 6!

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!)
