A NEW AGE OF AVENGERS BEGINS THIS WEDNESDAY!
Wow, the books from this past week were huge. Siege has ended, the Red Hulk's identity has finally been revealed, Bruce Wayne is alive and well in ancient times, and the Birds of Prey have reformed! That (and a whole bunch more) is a lot to take in for one week. But, of course, in comics there is no end to the insanity so it's time to press on. Those wacky folks at Marvel have promised to take us back to our roots and they are fulfilling that promise this week with the relaunching of the Avengers and a bunch of other key titles, kicking off the Heroic Age.
Personally, I've been really looking forward to this relaunch and I can't wait to see what the boys and girls at Marvel have in store for us. If you've never read an Avengers title before, or if you don't even read Marvel at all, this will be a great place to start, so make sure you all pick up your copies of Avengers #1 this week.
For those of you who have been asking about the White Lantern rings, we have received them last week and if you haven't picked one up be sure to, they're free after all. Speaking of White Lanterns, Brightest Day #2 breaks out this Wednesday and if you haven't been following, jump on board already! We have plenty of copies of #0 and #1 floating around.
One last thing before we send you on your way for all this week's news, sales, and new books. Dark Horse is currently running a poll on it's Facebook page for fans to vote for their favorite comic shop in NYC. The winner gets some free stuff for their customers so help us edge out the big guns in Manhattan and put Staten Island on the map by voting for good ol' Comic Book Jones by clicking here!
