Happy New Comic Books Day Ninja Nation! Here are the comics that hit us like a throwing star today.
The Walking Dead #81
From Robert Kirkman and Image Comics, “NO WAY OUT” continues! Desperate times call for desperate measures. This has been a good story line with the action finally picking back up the last couple of issues.
Star Trek: Infestation #1
More zombie goodness from Scott Tipton and David Tipton, the first-ever event in IDW Publishing’s history crosses over into the Star Trek universe with this two-part, bi-weekly series! A routine visit to a colony world takes a horrifying turn when Admiral Kirk, Mr. Spock and Dr. McCoy find themselves surrounded by hordes of the undead! Spinning out of the pages of last month’s INFESTATION, this series takes the crew of the Enterprise into a dark and deadly new direction!
Amazing Spider-Man #563
From Marvel Comics and Dan Slott, “Self-Inflicted Wounds”
One of the most pivotal moments of the SPIDER-MAN “BIG TIME” era happens here. Other comics promise you their issues will “Change Everything” or that “Nothing Will Ever Be The Same.” No carnival barker-like pitch this time. Just the plain, simple truth: This issue of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN will have repercussions for Peter Parker and this title’s cast for years and years to come. Guest-starring THE NEW AVENGERS. Also in this issue: We finally reveal what has become of the alien symbiote. And a dramatic change to Spider-Man’s powers. Do NOT miss this issue!
Ultimate Spider-Man #153
Sticking with our favorite wall crawler, from Brian Michael Bendis and Marvel Comics, this is the first prelude to the “Death Of Spider-Man” story line.
New Avengers #9
Again from Brian Michael Bendis and artists Mike Deodato and Howard Chaykin! Every spy has secrets, but few run as deep as those of Nick Fury. Now, he’s finally been forced to reveal all to the New Avengers…but only as a threat born of the true foundations of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes comes hurdling out of a past long thought buried. This February, the classified origins of [XXXXXX] will be unleashed at last, only in New Avengers #9!
