Amazing comic beginnings this Wednesday, September 14

Miles Morales steps into some new Spider-duds this week in Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man #1 by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli. Who is Miles Morales? He's the new Spider-Man, of course! Morales takes up the mantel after Peter Parker's death, but fans should not fear because Bendis plans to keep the theme of the series the same as it has always been, power and responsibility.

Buffy is back in Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9: Freefall #1 by Adrew Chambliss and Joss Whedon with art by Georges Jeanty! At the end of season 8, Buffy saved the world by cutting it off from any supernatural influences, which means Willow has been left powerless and the long line of vampire slayers has come to a close.

Speaking of science gone bad, Micheal Holt uses his brains and fists to stop problems only the world's third-smartest man can handle in Mister Terrific #1 by Eric Wallace and Roger Robinson. Those looking for a little cosmic action should look no further then Green Lantern #1 by Geoff Johns, Doug Mahnke, and Christian Alamy. The Corps has a new member, and a lot of Lanterns are not too happy. Speaking of people the Green Lanterns don't like, Atrocitus and the rest of his Corps are back in there very own book: Red Lanterns #1 by Peter Milligan, Ed Benes, and Rob Hunter. Readers will also want to grab Legion Lost #1 by Fabian Nicieza and Pete Woods.

After several long months of rumors, hints, and previews, DC's new 52 line-up starts this Wednesday in Justice League #1!

Following right on the heels of the ground breaking conclusion to Flashpoint comes Justice League #1 by the superstar team of Geoff Johns and Jim Lee!

It isn't an Illusion. Warhammer returns to Dr. No's!

Do not be fooled by the dreamy pictures. Warhammer is back at Dr. No's. Warhammer 40k, Warhammer Fantasy, Lord of the Rings, terrain supplies, paints, tools, etc. are all here. We also have in stock a Painting Guide and Terrain Building Guide to help you make your armies and playing surface look the best they can be.

From Games Workshop,
"...The Warhammer world is rich with history and legend, aeons of bloodshed and conflict have shaped both its surface and its denizens into a world of relentless battle. It is the battleground between the forces of Order and Destruction, where vast armies clash in mighty battles with the fate of the world hanging in the balance..."

"...Warhammer Fantasy is the Game of Fantasy Battles, a thrilling test of tactical skill and strategy. Warhammer is far more than just a game though, it's also an absorbing hobby where you can collect, model and paint armies of exquisite miniatures.
Many races wage war upon the face of world, each fighting for a different cause or purpose. Some fight for freedom and the safety of their citizens, some for the joy of slaughter or to slake an insatiable thirst for carnage. Others do battle for the entertainment of the Dark Gods, seeking the enslavement of all mortals."

"...Warhammer 40,000, the tabletop battlegame of the far future, allows you to wage war with armies of Citadel miniatures across miniature battlefields in the ultimate contest of strategy and skill. Each player is a commander who must choose his finest warriors, decide upon cunning battle plans and strategies and lead his army to victory or death. Games can vary in size from small skirmishes of just a few dozen models per side, to massive clashes with hundreds of miniatures..."

"... The Lord of The Rings Strategy Battle Game, a game that puts you in charge of the army of your choice, be it the noble and brave men of Gondor, stalwart Dwarves, vile and cruel Orcs or the armoured Uruk-hai of Isengard. The monsters and heroes of Middle-earth are yours to command, including the likes of Gandalf the Grey, Aragorn, Saruman and the Witch-king; legendary creatures like the Mûmakil, Ents; and terrifying monsters such as the Balrog or Dragons.
The Lord of The Rings Strategy Battle Game is for anyone who has ever wondered what it would be like to control the fabled Fellowship of The Ring as they battled their way through Khazad-dûm, who has wondered whether they could have thwarted the defenders of Helm's Deep or wanted to take part in the glorious Battle of the Pelennor Fields..."

Yu-Gi-Oh! Generation Force Sneak Peak! August 6 & 7, 2011 @ Noon

Join us at Dr. No's Comics and Games this Saturday, August 6, and Sunday, August 7, for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Generation Force Sneak Peak Event! Starting at noon on Saturday and 12:30 PM on Sunday, events will be run hourly to ensure everyone gets a chance to play. (Please note that Sunday availability is dependent on Saturday sales; if Saturday participation is extremely high, Sunday sneak peek availability will be accordingly limited.)

For the $19.99 entry fee, each player will receive five booster packs from the new set and a limited edition Xyz Veil card while supplies last. Once the events are over, names of participating players will be randomly drawn for a chance to win the Generation Force game mat.

From Konami's website:
A new generation of Dueling is beginning!!

It's time for the Generation Force Sneak Peek, your first chance to get your hands on the brand new Generation Force booster packs - before they’re available in most stores!
Generation Force is the first booster set to have the new 4th Generation of Yu-Gi-Oh! monsters: the easy-to-play Xyz Monsters! Xyz Monsters bring your Deck some 4th Generation power, because the newest way to Summon from your Extra Deck is the easiest one yet! Plus they automatically work with ALL the monsters you already have in your Deck.
This 100-card set also has HERO monsters, new aquatic cards, and Wind-Up toys, and is the first booster set printed with the new Problem-Solving Card Text.
At the Sneak Peek, you can also try to get an exclusive Generation Force Game Mat. You don’t have to be a skilled Duelist because we’ve asked the stores to give them out randomly, so everyone has a chance! Plus everybody gets a limited edition, Ultra Rare Xyz Veil Trap (while supplies last), and a mini-poster that tells you how to summon an Xyz Monster, and a Generation Force checklist on the back! Be sure to show up early because supplies of all items are limited and late-comers could get left in the dust.

As with every set, Generation Force includes 10 Bonus Cards (previously available only in Japan), plus 10 World Premiere cards never before seen anywhere on Earth! You won't want to miss out!

Sneak Peek: What is it?
A Sneak Peek is your first look inside the latest booster set. New Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s TRADING CARD GAME booster sets are released every three months, featuring 100 brand new cards! Add these new cards to your collection, or create a new Deck based on the featured new themes, or add the new cards to your current Decks to make them more powerful than ever.
At a Sneak Peek, you’ll get 5 booster packs of the latest set, and use just those cards to build a new Deck. The minimum Deck size at a Sneak Peek is lowered to 20 cards. Since only these new cards are used, everyone has a chance to win their Duels!
While you’re having fun with your new cards, you might win a special Extreme Victory Game Mat. Additional booster packs will not be awarded, but you can buy more packs of Generation Force on August 16 at stores everywhere!
For Parents
If your child is younger, shy, or just getting into Yu-Gi-Oh!, a Sneak Peek is a good first stop. Some tournaments can be intimidating, with highly competitive players, but these Sneak Peek events are more casual and fun. These are some of the best events for new Duelists since everybody has access to the same cards. If your child is nervous about asking a stranger to Duel against, ask the store personnel to help. Sneak Peeks are all about everyone having a good time with their new cards.
