This Wednesday, we’re set to get a big one shot from Marvel Comics called Point One! You’ve seen many of the Point One issues already and you know they’re designed to be good jumping-on points for their respective series. Well this is a Point One issue for the entire Marvel Universe!
Sez Marvel’s Executive Editor, Tom Brevort: "Point One is a massive one-shot of 64 all-new pages of story by the top creators in the business, setting the stage for the biggest stories coming in 2012. It is the starting point to what’s in store for the world’s most iconic characters and startling events. Point One serves as the launch pad for dynamic new series, including one that spins directly out of the smash hit ‘Dark Angel Saga’ in Uncanny X-Force, and a shocking teaser that will have everyone talking. See how all it comes together in one gigantic epic!”
He is definitely excited.

Marvel Comics’ Point One #1 comes out on Wednesday!
We’re now in the heart of the third month of DC Comics’ New 52, and by most accounts DC is doing a fine job with the relaunch. In fact, the company boasted 19 of the top 25 selling titles last month! That’s pretty huge and it demonstrates quite a mandate from the masses.
This week’s Green Lantern can certainly take some credit for that. The second issue was the fourth-best selling comic of October. And with good reason. The story of Sinestro and Hal in the wake of the War of the Green Lanterns has been very interesting. We still have the first two issues in stock so if you haven’t given it a chance yet, you totally should!
