While DC’s Flashpoint may be hitting its stride, Marvel’s event Fear Itself is also having a big week! The big release is of course FEAR ITSELF #3., the third installment in the seven-issue main series. But we’re also getting Fear Itself: Deep #1 and Marvel U tie-in’s Thunderbolts #158 and Herc #4!
As The Worthy’s campaign of mayhem burns worldwide, Sin comes closer than ever at completing the one task her father never could – the complete conquest of the Marvel Universe! It’s been really good so far. We’ll see if issue #3 can keep it up!
FEAR ITSELF #3 (OF 7)
Written by MATT FRACTION
Penciled by STUART IMMONEN
The blockbuster Marvel event of the year continues! Sin leads the most audacious attack on American soil the world has ever seen as global panic sets in and we fall sway to the power of fear itself. On Asgard, Loki hatches the scheme to end all schemes. And everywhere, the Serpent’s presence is felt…never moreso than when a major Marvel hero falls at his hands. The shock ending to end all shock endings…as the cycle of evil stretching millennia is at last completed.
Marvel Comics’ Fear Itself #3 comes in on Wednesday!
And if you’re not moved by either Flashpoint or Fear Itself, I have to tell you we’re getting more issues of Rocketeer Adventures #1 in stock! This was the under-the-radar book that Rusty picked as his best book of the week when it came out and almost pulled off a coup for the #1 book of the month!
As Rusty said, "Three short stories. No continuity. No building a plot. Although each short had a beginning, middle, and end. And they all ended on a high note. John Cassaday… Mike Allred… Kurt Busiek and Mike Kaluta… Just three flat out cool shorts by some of the biggest names in comics today"
So far we’ve only seen the first issue of Flashpoint, but that one issue ranked as the best comic book of May! Well, this week DC’s big event really hits its stride as we’re set to get FLASHPOINT #2 and the start of FOUR of the tie-in mini-series! We’ll see how they stack up to that first installment! Here’s what we’re set to get, along with Flashpoint #2:

DC Comics’ Flashpoint releases come in on Wednesday!
DC’s event of the year Flashpoint hits its stride this week as we’re set to get not only Flashpoint #2 (and yes, we still have Flashpoint #1′s in stock), but also three of the tie-in mini-series: Abin Sur the Green Lantern #1, Batman Knight of Vengeance #1 and Secret Seven #1! It’s also the last week of the month, which certain parties have been calling the Jonah Hex-Sweet Tooth week… and so it is!
Marvel’s got its big event this week, too, with Fear Itself #3 and Fear Itself Deep #1! We’re also looking forward to a couple other high profile books, including the second issue of the much-debated Moon Knight and SHIELD #1, which starts the second volume of Jonathan Hickman’s unique superhero tale. Plus, Heroes for Hire #8, Uncanny X-Force #11, Thunderbolts #158 and more!
Throw in a new Hellboy series, the final issue of Halcyon and Previews and you’ve got a solid week!
