Another Marvel character hits a milestone issue this week! After joining the 600 club this summer, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America and Spider-Man will welcome Daredevil into the multiple-hundreds club when Daredevil #500 bows this Wednesday. Lady Bullseye and Kingpin will continue to make Matt Murdock's life complicated as Ed Brubaker crafts this tale, with another creative team set to pick up after this issue. Joining Luke Cage, the Punisher goes dark with Punisher Noir #1, a tale set in the 1920's with mobsters aplenty! Look for a very Rogue-centric issue of X-Men Legacy #227, as she struggles with the burden of carrying the mind and power of a god!

DC Comics reintroduces us to a familiar heroine with the release of Batgirl #1, the first in a four-issue series that promises a new member of the Bat family. Codename:Patriot continues in Supergirl #44, as Supergirl and Mon-El take on Flamebird and Nightwing! J. Michael Straczynski brings us The Red Circle: The Web, a reboot of one of several Gold and Silver Age heroes. The Outsiders #21 has more Arkham Asylum adventure than you can shake a stick at, with our team searching for Killer Croc, Clayface and Mr. Freeze! See who rises from the dead in Blackest Night: Superman #1 as well!

Dark Horse Comics brings us Citizen Rex #2 this week, along with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic #44, which will conclude the current "The Reaping" storyline, while promising to reveal a hidden truth about an Old Republic member! Image Comics brings us Bomb Queen Omnibust Vol. 1 in hard cover! Collecting over 300 pages of Bomb Queen comics, it's a must have for fans of the series! King City #1 promises mystery, cats with odd characteristics and plenty more interesting details in its first issue! Also look for IDW to release the Astro Boy Movie Adaptation #1! The four-issue, weekly series kicks off this Wednesday! Check back next week for some major releases! What, did you think I'd give them away this week?
