Grab some great books this Wednesday, February 16th!

Writer Greg Pak brings us the new character-defining epic Silver Surfer #1 with art by Stephen Segovia. Feared by many, the herald of Galactus walks the Earth again. However, the High Evolutionary has plans for the surfer that may change the cosmic balance forever and cost him everything. Watch and see if the Silver Surfer can survive the judgment of Norrin Rand, the man within the herald.

Then next book in the Marvel.1 initiative, Amazing Spider-Man #654.1, hits shelves this week. This is the start of a new story-arc, so it is a perfect jumping on point for new or lapsed readers wanting to get into Spidey's adventures. There is a new Venom in town, but he isn't the bad guy you may be used to. A new man wears the symbiote suit, and he is showing up Spider-Man in the hero department. Also, who will Spider-Man turn to in his moment of need?

Based on DC's new hit cartoon show, Young Justice #1 follows the adventures of some of the biggest heroes' sidekicks. Robin, Superboy, Kid Flash, Aqualad and more star in this action packed book for all ages. Superboy and Miss Martian are moving in to Young Justice headquarters, but strange visions of Superboy's past are out to ruin the day.

With Black Panther taking care of Hell's Kitchen, Matt Murdock has left behind the hero that he once was. Or has he? In Daredevil Reborn #2, Matt has come across a corrupt city in the New Mexico desert becoming worse day by day. You can take the hero out of Hell's Kitchen, but you can't take the Daredevil out of Mr. Murdock.

Garth Ennis' Jennifer Blood #1 is out this week and follows the story of a suburban, house mother turned night time vigilante. She may seem normal, making breakfast, taking kids to school, keeping the house in order, but after dinner and the kids and husband are asleep, she becomes a suburban punisher. Fans Ennis and Marvel's Punisher  are sure to enjoy this book. Also by Ennis, Boys #51 is also out this week.

DC Comics fans will have a good week with the release of Brightest Day #20, Batman #707, Wonder Woman #607, Green Lantern #62, Booster Gold #41, and many more!

Don't fear Marvel fans because we have you covered too! Keep your eyes out for Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis #5, Avengers Academy #9, Generation Hope #4, Uncanny X-Force #5, and more!

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!)
