Star Trek/Planet of the Apes #1

It's the 23rd century, and the Klingons are out to tip the balance of power on a primitive planet - meaning it's up to Starfleet to put things right. Yet this will be no ordinary mission. As Captain Kirk and the crew of the starship Enterprise are about to discover, this is a world that called itself Earth before a nuclear war decimated the human civilization... and gave rise to the Planet of the Apes!

It might be a smaller shipment this week, but new comics are still coming your way! Look for Star Trek/Planet of the Apes #1, out Wednesday December 31 at Curious Comics!

Superior Iron Man #3

Tony Stark is remaking the world in his own image - and he's starting by releasing the life-altering Extremis 3.0 app on San Francisco. But not everyone can afford to buy into Stark's concept of the future, and Iron Man's old ally Daredevil is among those who would like to put a stop to Tony's new plans. Will a tailor-made version of Extremis - one designed to give Matt Murdock his sight back - be enough to buy Daredevil's loyalty?

The story of Tony Stark's startling new life continues in Superior Iron Man #3, out next Wednesday at Curious Comics!

Batman & Robin 1966 Bust Banks

Holy loose change, Batman! Bruce Wayne didn't get to be a millionaire playboy by letting all his nickels and quarters fall down the back of the couch at stately Wayne Manor - no, he socked it all away in his favourite piggy bank. Now you can do the same with these awesome new Batman and Robin Bust Banks, depicting the Dynamic Duo as they appeared in the classic 1960s Batman TV series.

Not even a criminal as conniving as the Joker would dare rob these banks! (He might strap them to a giant rocket and shoot them into outer space or something, but that's another story.) Look for your Batman & Robin 1966 Bust Banks - an excellent Christmas gift idea for the Batman fan on your list! - out Wednesday at Curious Comics!

Guardians of the Galaxy #22

Space travel has had a strange effect on the Venom symbiote - making it stronger, more aggressive, and more difficult for its host to control. But if the Guardians of the Galaxy think they are having a tough time keeping one symbiote under control, just wait until they arrive on a whole planet teeming with the creatures....

Angry Birds Holiday Special

Guardians of the Galaxy Annual #1

Alien super-villains on a rampage. Inter-dimensional invasion forces. The Guardians of the Galaxy are used to facing the worst the universe can throw at them - so when a wormhole opens up near their starship, they are expecting to see more of the same. Instead they get a young Nick Fury and the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, very very far from where they're supposed to be. But is that better or worse than an alien super-villain?

Brian Michael Bendis and Frank Cho deliver the Guardians of the Galaxy Annual #1, out Wednesday December 10 at Curious Comics!

Assigned to stop the Chinese military from developing their own super-powered agents, the Squad is sent on a sabotage mission - but things go very wrong after they accidentally awaken the creatures they were meant to destroy. Will any of the team make it out of China alive... or is the Suicide Squad about to live up to its name?

It's the DC Comics team everyone is talking about! Look for your copy of New Suicide Squad #5, out next Wednesday at Curious Comics!

Spider-Man & the X-Men #1

The students of the Jean Grey Academy are used to seeing some of the world's greatest mutant heroes among the faculty and staff... but they've never encountered anyone quite like their new Guidance Counselor before! The Amazing Spider-Man is about to trade the concrete canyons of New York City for some time upstate at the school - but can the webheaded wallcrawler really cut it as an X-Teacher?
