Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis #1 (OF 5) – THE HEROIC AGE IS HERE! The superstar team of Warren Ellis and Kaare Andrews (SPIDER-MAN: REIGN) take X-Men into the Heroic Age! Something's happening in the tiny East African city of Mbangwi. Something that requires immediate investigation. A newborn sprouts metal electrodes and explodes, taking out an entire hospital. Is this the first wave of mutant rebirth that the X-Men have been praying forÖor something very, very different? Something sinister?

Batman: Return of Bruce Wayne #1 (OF 6) – The most anticipated series of 2010 is here! Superstar writer Grant Morrison tackles his most ambitious project to date with THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE, a special six-part series that chronicles the return of the original man behind Batman's cape and cowl! Each issue spans a different era of time and features the dynamic artwork of one of today's artistic juggernauts, starting with Chris Sprouse (TOM STRONG) on the extra-sized issue #1 and Frazer Irving (SEVEN SOLDIERS: KLARION) on the 40-page issue #2!

Birds of Prey #1 (BRIGHTEST DAY) – Soaring out of BRIGHTEST DAY, the Birds are back in town! Because you demanded it, fan-favorites Gail Simone (WONDER WOMAN, SECRET SIX) and Ed Benes (JUSTICE LEAGUE, GREEN LANTERN) reunite to reinvent the book where they made their explosive debut as a team. Oracle, Black Canary, Huntress and Lady Blackhawk all return to Gotham City where they belong - and they've brought a couple of new friends (or are they foes?) along with them! Guest-starring a major Bat-villain and the first appearance of the most dangerous, most twisted new Birds villain ever!

Bram Stoker’s Death Ship #1 – An untold story from the greatest vampire story ever written, Bram Stoker's Death Ship explores the harrowing, nightmarish sea voyage from Transylvania to England. One by one, the terrified crewmembers of the Russian schooner Demeter vanish, victims of the unearthly lifeform that lies comatose in the ship's hold during daylight hours. Only Demeter's seasoned captain, a proud man of the sea, remains to confront the voracious monster that has preyed upon his crew by moonlight.

Claw and Fang #1 – A warrior king will be reborn! Hunted to extinction by a renegade demon, the Firewoman is the last of her kind. She survives driven only by the hope she can bestow her power upon the one person able to restore balance, but the one she seeks has given up on life in the real world, preferring a virtual one.

Daredevil: Cage Match #1 – Before the Shadowland comes, we look back at a bit of brutal history between Luke Cage and Daredevil, revealing a mutual respect that may soon be torn asunder.

Justice League: Generation Lost #1 (BRIGHTEST DAY) – Spinning out of BRIGHTEST DAY, DC's new biweekly event begins here! Someone is targeting the old members of the defunct Justice League International. Now, surviving members Booster Gold, Captain Atom, Fire and Ice have to figure out what unseen mastermind is threatening to destroy the entire Super Hero community! There are no gray areas here--it's black and white and red with blood all over for this lost generation of Super Heroes as original JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL writer Keith Giffen is joined by superstar scribe Judd Winick (BATMAN, GREEN ARROW) for a new era in excitement! And don't miss the monumental reteaming of Giffen and his former JLI writing partner J.M. DeMatteis on this month's BOOSTER GOLD #32!

Wolverine #900 – X-Man. Avenger. Soldier. And that's just the HALF of it. In this atomic-sized special, superstar David Finch leads a platoon of comic's most talented creators in giving the Canadian killer a 21-gun salute. Ninjas, bar-room brawls, Morlocks and pirates (yes, PIRATES!): this issue sees the most marvelous mutant of all put through the paces. And if five-all new tales of Snikt-tastic action wasn't enough, there's classic reprints featuring some of Logan's greatest hits!

Haven in the News!! (5-4-10)

As readers of this site may already know, Haven recently participated in the D&D Encounters Pimp Your Store contest, transforming our previously lackluster gaming room into the Dueling Dragons Inn. It took a lot of people and a lot of effort to pull this transformation off, but we did a heck of a job, as you can see in the picture.

I just got off the phone with a lovely representative of Wizards of the Coast, and Haven has won one of the runner up prizes in this huge competition. Only five stores from the US and Canada placed in this contest, and HAVEN WAS ONE OF THEM. Rock on for us!

In addition to some awesome promotional materials and some serious party fixin's to help us celebrate, we'll be getting a write-up on D&D's website and on their Community Page, so look for more of Haven in the news in the coming weeks!

Come on out to D&D Encounters to play in our newly awesome game room and check it out for yourself!

Free Comic Book Day Was Awesome!!

Thanks to everyone who came out for Free Comic Book Day and made it the success it turned out to be. We had a lot of new folks come in for the first time, and we had a lot of folks bringing their kids in to try out some comic books, which was awesome.

All in all, it turned out to be a great day for Haven, and I appreciate everyone coming by!
