A new era of X-Men begins this Wednesday, October 12

The X-Men will never be the same after the events of last week's conclusion to X-Men Schism. A family is divided, and everyone must choose who they will side with. In this week's X-Men Regenesis #1. writer Kieron Gillen and artist Billy Tan set the stage for the two new upcoming X-titles, Wolerine & The X-Men #1 and Uncanny X-Men #1. Every X-Man much choose their destiny: Wolverine or Cyclopes. No matter who they choose, things will never be the same. X-fans will also be happy to know that Uncanny X-Force #16, X-Men Legacy #257, and Generation Hope #12 will also be out.

DC fans have a lot of great books to look forward to this week. Fan's of James Robinson's Starman series may remember an antihero by the name of Shade; this week, Robinson and artist Cully Hamner bring the character back in Shade #1, a new 12-issues series. Shade's true origin is finally revealed when an attack on the Starman museum sends him on a journey around the world and through time that will change him forever. Then, My Greatest Adventure #1 brings readers the continuing adventures of Garbage Man and Tanga from the Weird Worlds series, but this time Robotman, a Las Vegas P.I., is along for the ride. This issues features stories from several great writers-Aaron Lopresti, Kevin Maguire, and Matt Kindt- and artists-Lopresti, Maguire, Matt Ryan, and Scott Kolins.
