Incorporate some new comics into your collection this Wednesday, December 21

Before the big DC relaunch, Grant Morrison brought about one of the biggest changes to the Bat family: Batman Incorporated! Spinning directly out of the last series, the Batman Incorporated: Leviathan Strikes one-shot finds Batman outwitted by the Leviathan, and with Bruce no longer sure of his adversary's true identity, he finds himself unprepared for what will come next. Who is the Leviathan? A familiar face back to settle the score or a new face in crime? Grant Morrison is back on writing duties for this issue with art by Cameron Stewart and Chris Burnham. Will you be prepared for the shocking ending?

IDW is celebrating 125 issues of their Transformer comics, and what better way to celebrate than taking the book in new directions! After Chaos, the fate of Optimus Prime was left a mystery, but in Transformers: Death of Optimus Prime, all will be revealed. In a place unknown to him, Optimus sits in contemplation. The battle cost him dearly, and his ability to carry own is called into question. After this issue, things will never be the same for the Autobots and their leader. A couple of other notable IDW books out this week are Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #5 and Dungeons & Dragons: Drizzt #4!

Marvel's mutant fans will love this week! Wolverine and the X-Men #3 continues the new Institute's first day, which has not be good to say the least. Uncanny X-Force #19 finds the team still recovering from last week's conclusion of the Dark Angel Saga and a new and exciting member joins the group! Also, keep an eye out for Daken Dark Wolverine #18, New Mutants #35, Wolverine, The Best There Is #12, X-23 #19, and X-Factor #229.

Writer/artist Joe Benitez's beloved series Lady Mechanika returns with the long awaited third issue of this steampunk adventure. Lady Mechanika continues her search for the 'Mechanical Girl' and finds herself aboard Lord Blackpool's airship during a masquerade ball. While Blackpool wows his guests with his latest weapons, Mechanika makes a discovery that could lead to information on her own creation.

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!)
