Before we tell you about the amazing comics coming out this week, we need to remind you that they’ll be available starting at 12:01 AM on Wednesday, July 4th! A perfect way to celebrate Independence Day! We’ll be open at Midnight, for about 45 minutes, and then we’ll re-open at 11am. And we’ll have THESE comics available: BATMAN #50 The Batrimony is real as Batman and Catwoman are set to tie the knot in a can't-miss, extra-length milestone issue that will reshape Gotham City. All their friends (and a few enemies?) will be party to a comic book coupling for the ages. CATWOMAN #1 Written and drawn by Joëlle Jones!! The wedding night's barely over, but Catwoman's back on the streets, this time to expose a copycat who's pulling heists around Gotham City. As Selina cracks the whip on her former criminal cohorts, she's attracting unwanted attention from one of Gotham's most dangerous groups, the GCPD. CAPTAIN AMERICA #1 Written by Ta-Nehisi Coates and drawn by Leinil Francis Yu. Who are the Power Elite? And how do they intend to co-opt and corrupt the symbol that is Captain America? BLACK HAMMER: QUANTUM AGE #1 Set in the world of Black Hammer-but a thousand years in the future-a collection of superheroes, inspired by the legendary heroes of the Black Hammer Farm, must band together to save the planet from an authoritarian regime while solving the riddle of what happened to the great heroes of the twentieth century. UNNATURAL #1 Leslie is a simple pig girl. She loves sushi, she's stuck with a job she hates, and she lives under a brutal totalitarian government-one that punishes transgressors for anything deemed "unnatural." Leslie dreams of something different for herself. But those dreams are becoming dangerous... SUBMERGED #1 On the night of the biggest storm in New York City history, Elysia Puente gets a call from her estranged little brother Angel, terrified, begging for help.

Beset on all sides by a roster of vicious foes, the New Lieutenants of Metal are guaranteed to deliver you unto greater comic book glory. COSMIC GHOST RIDER #1 Frank Castle was the Punisher. A deal with the devil made him Ghost Rider. A deal with Galactus made him cosmic. A deal with Thanos made him...DEAD?!? Not to worry, he's coming back, and he's got a plan to make the universe a better place that's going to lead him into an even CRAZIER adventure than he's ever been in! JIM HENSON BENEATH DARK CRYSTAL #1 A new sequel to the hit film! The realm of Mithra is being rebuilt by the newly-crowned Ember Queen Thurma.
