Amazing Spider-Man:
As Doc Ock’s schemes take shape, Morbius the living vampire returns with a vengeance! Amazing Spider-Man #699.1 by Dan Slott, Joe Keatinge, Valentine De Landro, and Stefano Caselli, is just one last morsel before the climactic events of the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man #700, historic for two reasons: it will be the final issue of this beloved series, and Midtown Comics will have an exclusive cover by J. Scott Campbell! As ASM #700 brings the title to a close, it paves the way for Superior Spider-Man #1, for which we also have an exclusive cover by J. Scott Campbell!

Marvel NOW!
Two Marvel NOW! first issues with a double dose by wordsmith Dennis Hopeless await you next week! First, Cable returns, with friends, in Cable and X-Force #1, with art by Salvador Larroca, along with Avengers Arena #1, with art by Kev Walker and Dave Johnson. Wolverine #317, by Chris Bunner, Paul Pelletier, and Mike Del Mundo is the final issue, and finds Wolvie facing nightmares while asleep and while awake, in order to save the Dreaming Maiden! Avengers #1 is available today, with an awesome Midtown exclusive cover by J. Scott Campbell. There’s much more from Marvel next week! Let Midtown bloggerino Raphael bring you up to speed on Marvel NOW! issue by issue! Marvel NOW! Up to Now part one, and Marvel NOW! Up to Now part two. Warning: there are some minor spoilers.

Death of the Family heats up:
Death of the Family continues in Batman #15, by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo! Why is The Joker more dangerous now than ever before? The final madness of his plan is revealed here! There are three DOTF tie-ins this week, starting with Batgirl #15, by Gail Simone and Ed Benes, in which Barbara’s first confrontation with The Joker since he shot her is coming to a horrifying conclusion! Two more DOTF tie-ins: Batman and Robin #15, which sports a Joker mask over-cover, and Suicide Squad #15! There’s lots more from DC Comics next week, including new Before Watchmen!

Lance Henriksen and the Hell he rides:
A deadly curse plagues the small town of Telluride, melting the flesh from its victims — the violent revenge four warriors set in motion when their sacred burial grounds were disturbed for the sake of gold miners’ greed! It’s all in To Hell You Ride #1, from Dark Horse, written by legendary actor Lance Henriksen (Aliens, Millenium) and Joseph Maddrey, with art by Tom Mandrake.

Cat ears that move with your mood:
Cat ears that move with your mood, just like a real cat? Meow! It’s true! Necomimi cat ears are based on safe brainwave technology and have cat-like reactive movements that show how interested or relaxed you are in real time. Whether you’re a cosplayer having a Felicia Hardy moment with your favorite Spider-Man, or just like to accessorize in style, Necomimi comes with a pair of standard white ears, with additional accessories available in Obsidian Black, Minky Brown, and Jungle Leopard, so you can choose the ear color that best suits you! Or, if you’re in a more devilish sort of mood, you can swap out the cat ears with a pair of devil horns! Necomimi cat ears will be available as of Wednesday, December 12th, but we have samples that you can try out today, at our Times Square and Grand Central locations, or check out this video!
