ABSOLUTE IDENTITY CRISISHere is the list of new comics, trade paperbacks and more shipping 10/12/2011. As always check with your retailer for availability, as not all releases may be on sale in all areas at the same time.

DC Comics’ New 52 continues with a slew os #2 issues and 2nd printing of #1 issues this week, but the one book coming home with you this week has to be ‘Absolute Identity Crisis’. If you haven’t read it it was the Universe altering seven-issue mini-series that lead to ‘Infinite Crisis’. The story goes a little something like this: When the spouse of a JLA member is brutally murdered, the entire super hero community searches for the killer, fearing their own loved ones may be the next targets. Before the mystery is solved, a number of long-buried secrets will threaten to divide the heroes before they can bring the killer to justice.

When the dust settles from X-Men Schism, a line has been drawn, and every mutant must choose. Who will they follow – XXXXXX or Wolverine? Either way, with mutantkind cut in two, things will never be the same. ‘X-Men: Regenesis’ #1 sets the stage for this month’s ‘Wolverine & The X-Men’ #1 and November’s all-new ‘Uncanny X-Men’ #1, Kieron Gillen (‘Uncanny X-Men’, ‘Journey Into Mystery’) and Billy Tan (‘Uncanny X-Force’, ‘New Avengers’) take us through the ranks of the X-Men as they choose their destiny.

All this plus… From the mind of musician Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, The Nightwatchman) with art by Scott Hepburn (‘Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic’), Orchid is the tale of a teenage prostitute who learns that she is more than the role society has imposed upon her. When the seas rose, genetic codes were smashed. Human settlements are ringed by a dense wilderness from which ferocious new animal species prey on the helpless. The high ground belongs to the rich and powerful that overlook swampland shantytowns from their fortress-like cities. Iron-fisted rule ensures order and allows the wealthy to harvest the poor as slaves. Welcome to the world of Orchid.
