Incoming for June 30th!

Another big week, with two long-awaited books making their debut: Astonishing X-Men #34 (it's about time!) and Flash #3 (for a fast guy, he's taking his time getting into comic shops, isn't he?). Other highlights of the week include Wonder Woman #600 (with the first J. Michael Straczynski Wonder Woman story), Action #890 (first Lex Luthor solo tale by acclaimed writer Paul Cornell--a story that spins out of the events of Blackest Night), and Justice League of America #46 (the beginning of the five-part Justice League-Justice Society crossover by James Robinson and ace artist Mark Bagley), and Secret Avengers #2.

Batman Beyond has been hot after the stories in Superman/Batman Annual #4 and Batman #700, so there'll be a lot of people very happy to see Batman Beyond #1 this week, with its story set smack-dab in the future DC Universe.

New books will be available for purchase just as soon as the doors open at 11am on Wednesday, June 30th, so be here! (And don't forget that next week, books will be delayed until Thursday, July 8th because of the 4th of July holiday.)

Great Stuff Awaits on June 3rd!

June kicks off with the third issue of Brightest Day, the best-selling series that continues where Blackest Night left off.

Another week, another great Avengers title--this week, it's Brian Bendis & Alan Davis's Avengers: Prime #1, the kickoff of a five-part arc that reconciles the split between Iron Man, Thor, and Steve Rogers.

Bat-fans will want to take a look at Joker's Asylum #1: The Riddler, the first book of a five-part weekly event that offers the Joker's take on some of Batman's most memorable rogues.

Learn about the missing period in Jason Todd's life in Red Hood: Lost Days #1, the first issue of a six-parter.

And Batman Beyond fans take note: Terry McGinniss makes a DCU appearance in Superman/Batman Annual #4, which paves the way for the Batman Beyond series beginning later this month!

June is twice as mice: Mice Templar: Destiny #9 and Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard #1 both arrive this week!

As we noted above, new book day this week is June 3rd, not June 2nd (Memorial Day has delayed releases by 24 hours)--but we'll have everything ready for sale when we open the doors on Thursday!
