Swing on in for new comics this Wednesday, January 18

Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic story Tarzan of the Apes is brought to life by Dynamite Entertainment like it has never been seen before: completely uncensored! Lord of the Jungle #1 begins in the late 1800s, and John Clayton, Lord of Greystoke, and his pregnant wife, the Lady Alice, find themselves stranded on a remote African coast. The two must survive the harsh environment while protecting their unborn child. Enjoy all of savage action of the original while experiencing new unexplored elements of the story by writer Arvid Nelson and artist Roberto Castro. The best part? This number one issue is only $1.00!

In the early 90s, Rob Liefeld introduced the character Prophet in Youngblood #2, and now, in 2012, Prophet returns thanks to Liefeld's Extreme Studio returning under the Image imprint. Writer Brandon Graham and artist Simon Roy have been given the reigns and creative freedom with this week's issue Prophet #21. Readers shouldn't be put off by the issue number because this is designed to be a starting point for new and old readers. Follow soldier John Prophet as he wakes from cryosleep to find that an alien race has settled the Earth, and humans have devolved into ape-men that serve as the new rulers' food source. Prohpet's mission? Restore the human empire!

Marvel has several great titles coming out this week. Here are a few highlights to watch for: Avenging Spider-Man #3, Amazing Spider-Man #678, Uncanny X-Force #20, and Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #6.

DC's New 52 continue this week with great titles like Batman #5, Catwoman #5, Green Lantern Corp #5, Supergirl #5, and Wonder Woman #5. Also keep an eye out for Batman Odyssey Vol. 2 #4.

These books, and many more, will be available as soon as we open the doors on Wednesday, so come on by!
