Turtle Power returns this Wednesday, August 24

Heroes in a half-shell, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael, make their return in IDW's new, full-color Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 written by Kevin Eastman and Tom Waltz with art by Dan Duncan. All the attitude and action of the original comics by Eastman and Laird are back along with the familiar faces of Master Splinter, April O'Neill, Casey Jones, and more! However, life isn't completely stable for the Turtles as they face a new villian by the name of Old Hob, a mutated ally cat bearing a deadly grudge. The new ongoing TMNT book is bigger and badder than ever and sets out to amaze new and old fans alike.

From the pages of DC Comics' hit Batman Beyond series comes Superman Beyond #0 by Tom Defalco with art by Ron Frenz, the hit-team behind Spider-Girl. With The Man of Tomorrow's powers in decline and his loved ones gone, Superman took to space to find solace, but his love for Earth and his hometown in Kansas brought him home only to find things have changed in his absence. He is once again called into action to stop a new villain more powerful than any he has faced before. This week also sees the release of the last few Flashpoint tie-in books before the relaunch of the DC Universe, including Flashpoint: Kid Flash #3, Lois Lane and the Resistance #3, and Project Superman #3.

Acclaimed write Jonathan Hickman and superstar artist Esad Ribic kick off the next era of Marvel's Ultimate Universe in Ultimate Comics: The Ultimates #1! As the heroes struggle to fit in to a world with a new status quo, the Ultimates face new threats even they may not be able to overcome. With Captain America MIA after the events of Ultimate Fallout, America's last line of defense may be out of luck. The new creative team promises to take the Ultimates into new and deadly territory! Anyone looking to pick-up Marvel's Ultimate titles shouldn't miss this book!

Also, don't forget that Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s hit series Kick-Ass 2 continues with the long awaited release of issue #3!

Anne Rice, one of the most iconic horror writers, and Mariah Huehner bring Anne Rice's Servant of the Bones to store shelves, adapting the novel of the same name. Once a spirit of rage and terror in ancient Babylon, the demon Azriel awakens in New York City to witness the brutal slaying of a young woman in the streets. He sets out to discover her killer only to find a far more sinister and world threatening plot while rediscovering his humanity. This six part adaptation is ornately illustrated by Renae DeLiz and Ray Dillon, the best-selling New York Times team.

Fans of action and adventure need look no further than this week's Dungeons & Dragons: Drizzt #1 by R.A. and Gene Salvatore with art by Agustin Padilla. The most popular character from the most popular fantasy world returns to comics in his first original tale that leads directly into R.A. Salvatore's newest Drizzt novel! Dungeons & Dragons #9 is also out this week and continues our heroes' witty, action packed story. If that isn't enough, the Dungeons & Dragons Dark Sun HC collects the entirety of the five-issue miniseries.

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!)
