BUT, It Doesn't End at Variants For DC!

There's still plenty more of great stuff to check out from DC Comics!

First up, we definitely want to let you guys know about the next two JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE DARKSEID WAR tie-in one-shots this week! Last week, if you didn't know, the one-shots for SUPERMAN and THE FLASH hit our shelves, and the week before that it was BATMAN. These have been fantastic one-shot stories, looking at how each member of the Justice League has been dramatically affected by the events of The Darkseid War in the pages of Justice League. And it doesn't just change them physically, or powerfully, but even personally in their individual cities and lives. These are CAN'T-MISS one-shots for all fans!

This week, we get to take a look at how Green Lantern and Shazam are dealing with the changes all around them...

This week, DC Comics also launches a brand-new title from screenwriter and award nominee Max Landis (Chronicle, Action Comics Annual #1) following Superman in the days before becoming Superman in SUPERMAN: AMERICAN ALIEN!

STK688736

Hollywood screenwriter and Eisner Award nominee Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra, ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN) joins forces with top comics artists including Jock, Francis Manapul and Jae Lee to bring you SUPERMAN: AMERICAN ALIEN, a 7-issue miniseries chronicling the life of Clark Kent and his development into the archetypal hero he will eventually become. But these are not the stories of the iconic "Superman" as you know him, but of the soft-spoken, charming, often-funny Kansas farm-boy behind the Man of Steel. With the tone of each issue ranging from heartwarming and simple, to frighteningly gritty and violent, to sexy, sun-kissed and funny, SUPERMAN: AMERICAN ALIEN is unlike anything you've seen before.
In this first issue, superstar artist Nick Dragotta (East of West, Fantastic Four) illustrates the story of Jonathan and Martha Kent as they struggle to deal with their 12-year-old son's latest quirk-he's been floating up into the air, sometimes hundreds of feet!

John's been looking forward to this one, as Max Landis is one of his favorite writers, and is aware that Landis is a huge, passionate Superman fan. Readers and fans can be rest assured, this title is in safe hands, and is definitely one to add to your pull list for every month!

 

Secret Wars #7 is Finally Here!

STK682562

Marvel's started their All-New, All-Different relaunch, but we've still got a mystery to solve as to how we got there as Secret Wars still rages on! With just two more issues to go, you can be sure #7 is going to be a doozy of a story for our favorite Marvel heroes! All the solicitation for the issue says there's going to be a great sacrifice! Don't forget to grab this issue of Secret Wars on your next visit! This is gonna be big!

If you buy ALL-NEW AVENGERS #1 and THE ULTIMATES #1, together, pick up ALL-NEW WOLVERINE and get it for 50% off!

In All-New Avengers, from a star-studded creative team of Mark Waid and Adam Kubert, The Avengers are dead - - long live the Avengers! Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Captain America, Thor, Vision, and Iron Man are living separate lives, not tied to any team, but when a threat from beyond the stars targets our world, fate draws them together once more, alongside Nova, Ms. Marvel, and Miles Morales, a.k.a. Spider-Man!

STK688246

Meanwhile, in The Ultimates, we've got BLACK PANTHER, CAPTAIN MARVEL, MS. AMERICA CHAVEZ, SPECTRUM, and BLUE MARVEL! They're the ultimate superteam, coming together to find and fix problems beyond the limits of the infinite! From cosmic forces lurking on Earth to what waits on the outside of the omniverse - the impossible is where they start! And what's more impossible than ending the threat of Galactus, the devourer of worlds... forever?

STK688292

One of Greg's favorite characters in the Marvel Universe is Laura Kinney, Wolverine's clone better known as X-23.
He's super stoked for her all-new, all-different title and direction as she takes on the role she might as well have been born for, that of the infamous and savage WOLVERINE! He wanted to find a way to share his love of the character with everyone, so he figured he'd give everyone a 50% discount with this deal to try it out. 

In All-New Wolverine, LAURA KINNEY EMBRACES HER DESTINY. HERE! COMES! WOLVERINE!
X-23 was created to be a weapon and for a time, that's all she was. But with the help of her mentor, LOGAN - the original WOLVERINE - she escaped that dark past. Tragically, Logan has fallen, but Laura will continue in his footsteps as a hero. Recent events have her doing everything in her power to keep those around her alive, as violent forces are hell-bent on mutual destruction. If anyone can stop them, it's Laura. She is the best there is at what she does. She is THE ALL-NEW WOLVERINE.
