The Death of Spider-Man Begins this Wednesday, February 9

The Marvel Ultimate Universe event to change it all, "Death of Spider-Man," kicks off this week in Ultimate Avengers vs New Ultimates #1 by Mark Millar and Leinil Yu. Carold Danver's Avengers team of Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, and Hawkeye face off against Nick Fury's covert New Ultimates team that will do anything to get the job done, and someone is going to pay the price in this no holds barred face off. The "DOSM" event draws closer in Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #153 by Brian Bendis with art by Sara Pichelli and David Lafuente. Iron Man has taken Spider-Man under his tutelage as the Ultimate Avengers attempt to give him so real super hero training. Also out this week, don't miss Ultimate Comics Captain America #2 by Jason Arron and Ron Garney.

"Flaspoint," DC's big Flash-focused event of the year, is rushing closer and closer with the release of Geoff Johns' The Flash #9. Fresh out of the Speed Force, Hot Pursuit is set on patrolling speedsters good and evil alike. And everyone is left wondering just who is under that helmet anyways?

Marvel.1 continues this week in Wolverine #5.1 by Jason Aaron and art by Jefte Palo. In this kick-start issue for new readers, Wolverine's girlfriend throws him a surprise party and invites the X-Men and Avengers to celebrate the special day, which happens to be one of Logan's least favorite. More than likely, this birthday will not change his mind; blood never goes well with cake. Also out this week, Wolverine #1000, collects a series of stories taking Wolverine from Hell to WWII to the bayou and even the Mojoverse.

Fan-favorite series Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman comes out with issue 81 this week, continuing the gripping "No Way Out" storyline. For the newcomers, Walking Dead Weekly #6 will also be on shelves.

Fables fans can not get enough of this secret-agent, so here she is: Cinderella, Fables Are Forever #1 by Chris Roberson and Shawn McManus. Cinderella is back in an all-new miniseries where she will be investigating a series of murders on The Farm. Who could be behind them and how does Cinderella's past involved? Find out this week.

At long last, the hit series turned comic, Jericho, has found a new home with IDW. Pick up this week's Jericho Redux #1 that reprints the first three issues of the series before the story continues later this month.

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!)
