Picks of the Week

Think you know the story of Cap and Bucky's origins? Well, think again.  The secret story of the early days of Captain America, told from Bucky Barnes's point of view. From co-writers Ed Brubaker and Marc Andreyko with artist Chris Samnee 

The long-awaited second chapter of Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen III: Century takes place almost sixty years later in the psychedelic daze of Swinging London during 1969, a place where Tadukic Acid Diethylamide 26 is the drug of choice, and where different underworlds are starting to overlap dangerously to an accompaniment of sit-ins and sitars. Alerted to a threat concerning the same magic order that she and her colleagues were investigating during 1910, a thoroughly modern Mina Murray and her dwindling league of comrades attempt to navigate the perilous rapids of London's hippie and criminal subculture, as well as the twilight world of its occultists. Mina and her companions must prevent the making of a Moonchild that might well turn out to be the Anti-Christ.

Super-star writer Dan Slott and fan-favorite Spidey artist Stefano Caselli are back! New York has been INFESTED and the web grows as it gets ready to explode into SPIDER-ISLAND!  Normal people are getting Spider-Powers!  But not all of them realize that with great power must also come know the rest. Okay, sure we often say Peter Parker's life will never be the same. But listen, pal, we've never been more serious. Heroes and villains are crawling all over Manahttan and no one knows why. This will change everything for Pete, for Spidey...and possibly for YOU! Look at it this way...If EVERYONE'S a Spider-Man...then no one is.
