Then his "buddies" in the club stake Bell-chan as the wager in a funnybike race-but Keiichi has trouble seeing the humor when it starts coming apart at high speed! After all this, Keiichi just wants to relax and watch some home video … except this video introduces (literally) a second goddess into his life-Belldandy's "sophisticated" older sister, Urd!

    STAR WARS: BOBA FETT ONE SHOT

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse
    Writer: Thomas Andrews
    Artist: Francisco Ruiz Velasco

    OVERKILL
    Boba Fett rockets onto the scene with blasters blazing in this stand-alone story featuring the galaxy's greatest bounty hunter taking on a dangerous contract that proves deadly for all involved!

    Summoned to settle the score between two warring factions, Fett quickly shows his employers the importance of always choosing the right tool for the job, and the folly of underestimating just how much damage and chaos a single Mandalorian can inflict. Once unleashed, Fett's drive to finish the job is unshakable, and both groups quickly realize they're dealing with a bigger and much deadlier mutual problem-one that must be stopped before it obliterates everything!

    Don't miss this essential piece of the Boba Fett mythos written by Thomas Andrews (Star Wars Empire) and illustrated with the eye-popping art of Francisco Ruiz Velasco (Lone Wolf 2100).

    Adam Chamberlain — America's poster boy for living sex-free until marriage — is about to take his show on the road to the Dark Continent. But what could drive a Christian youth minister to leave it all behind and head out into the spiritually uncharted territories of southern Africa? Bullets, hit men, parents, paparazzi, pornography, and the voice of God...for starters.

    FABLES #48 (1 of 2)

    Publisher:
    DC Comics/Vertigo
    Writer: Bill Willingham
    Artist: Mark Buckingham

    WOLVES, Part 1 of 2
    Here's the problem: Some time ago, in a bit of a snit, Bigby Wolf packed a bag and left the Fables series. Walked right out! But he's still under contract, so we sent Mowgli, of Jungle Book fame, to find him. It makes sense, right? Mowg is a terrific hunter, and he was raised by wolves. Send a wolf to catch a wolf, right? And in his world-spanning travels to track down Bigby, Mowg encounters all sorts of other wolves. In short, this story's all about wolves. Which you might have guessed if you read the story title.

    Publisher:
    Dynamite Entertainment
    Writer: James Kuhoric
    Artists: Kevin Sharpe, Jamie Biggs (cover), Nick Bradshaw (Cover), Fabio Laguna (Cover)

    Continuing the "Old school" look at the army of Darkness! Ash is trapped in the old cabin and must sever the Deadite spirit anchor before the twisted creatures inhabiting the hovel feast on his soul. Somewhere in the darkest corner of the ghastly fruit cellar the long buried secret waits for him while the spirit responsible for the horrors unleashed in the woods bides its time for a chance at the Chosen One, and its own unworthy salvation. It's a return to "Rami-esque" storytelling as Army of Darkness goes "Old School" and revisits its roots in this tribute to grueling horror storytelling.

    IDW Publishing
    Writer: Simon Furman
    Artists: E.J. Su, Guido Guidi (Cover), James Raiz (Cover), Andrew Wildman (Cover)

    Ratchet needs answers, before the crisis on Earth escalates, and that means sending a crack team deep—literally—into enemy territory. Too bad then, given Ratchet’s oath to protect human life, that his available resources amount to Verity, Hunter and Jimmy. Too bad also that Decepticon unit commander Starscream is intent on removing all evidence of his indiscretions, and that includes the particular bit of ‘enemy territory’ in question. Enter: Blitzwing and Skywarp!
