Amazing Spiderman 700 Variant Cover Quesada

Here is the list of new comics, trade paperbacks and more shipping on 12/26/2012. As always, check with your retailer for availability, as not all releases may be on sale in all areas at the same time.

With the holidays upon us, this will be a light week for new releases, but what this week lacks in quantity of books, there is certainly a lot of quality hitting the shelves at your local comic shop.

You’re pull list this week should begin and end with just one comic… ‘Amazing Spider-man’ #700. This is it for the flagship Spidey book, and if you’ve been following along you know Doctor Octopus has switched bodies with Peter Parker, and that Peter has just 700 minutes to get to Doc Ock and get his life and body back. Even though the issue has yet tho hit shelves it is already causing controversy, as spoilers about the issue are already hitting the Interweb.  Things got so bad at one point Spider-scribe Dan Slott was receiving death threats over Twitter. So ask yourself, how can you miss this issue? Answer, you can’t!

The other big story this week comes from DC Comics’ big Justice League/Aquaman crossover event. Don’t miss the debut of Ivan Reis and Joe Prado (Aquaman) as the new Justice League art team on issue 15! Can the Justice League band together to battle the forces of Atlantis? And in the backup feature, Shazam comes face to face with Black Adam, and Billy makes a decision that will shock his friends!

‘Aquaman’ #15 continues the crossover with the Justice League as Part 2 of “Throne Of Atlantis” rages on! Atlantis invades the surface world… that doesn’t sound good.

From Image Comics this week comes ‘Mara’ #1. Acclaimed creator Brian Wood (‘The Massive’, ‘DMZ,’ ‘Demo,’ ‘Northlanders’) and brilliant newcomer Ming Doyle (‘The Loneliest Astronaut,’ ‘Fantastic Four,’ ‘Girl Comics’) bring you ‘MARA,’ the story of an especially gifted woman in a sports-and war-obsessed future. Young Mara Prince is at the top of the world, a global celebrity in a culture that prizes physical achievement above all else. After she manifests supernatural abilities on live TV, she becomes famous all over again but for the worst reasons.  Integrating themes of superpowers, celebrity worship, corporate power, feminism, and political brinksmanship, Mara takes a classic genre to new places.

All this plus… Happy Holidays!
