Immortal Iron Fist Annual #1 - THE BOOK OF THE IRON FIST, written on parchment made from the dragon scales of Shou-Lao the Undying, tells the life stories and kung fu secrets of every man and woman to hold the mantle of the Immortal Iron Fist -- except two. One, Danny Rand, the current Iron Fist, is the possessor of this most remarkable book. The other is Orson Randall, the Golden Age Iron Fist, and all his life he remained an enigma, even while trying to outrun the Iron Fist legacy. If Danny hopes to unlock the last mysteries of the Iron Fist, he'll have to track down Orson's long-lost life story and learn his secrets before it's too late. This unique annual both enriches the current Iron Fist storyline THE SEVEN CAPITAL CITIES OF HEAVEN and serves as a perfect jumping-on point for new readers.

Marvel Zombies: Book of Angels, Demons, & Monstrosities - Think you know everything there is to know about the things that go bump in the night? Think again! Discover the events that led to the infectious Marvel Zombies. What does Belasco have in store for the X-Men? What is lurking in the unknown? Is it the Lurking Unknown or something worse? Think Set and Seth are one and the same? What is the most powerful black magic tome on Earth? What are the Azazel, Brain, Lord of Death and Voyager? Find out all of this and more as we explore the dark depths of the Marvel Universe and beyond – featuring Demons (a massive eight-page profile), Angels, Werewolves, Vampires, death gods Damballah and Pluto, and much more! Oh yeah, and did I mention Marvel Zombies?

Sub-Mariner #4 (of 6) - The U.S. government is after Namor–public enemy #1! A terrorist attack perpetrated by an Atlantean sleeper cell has killed 800 innocent civilians…but who gave the order? While the Sub-Mariner scours the surface for answers, Tony Stark, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., tries to prevent a seemingly inevitable war between Atlantis and the surface world…but even Iron Man can’t stop the government from unleashing their secret weapon on Namor–the Thunderbolts! With extreme prejudice!

Wonder Woman Annual #1 - At long last, the climactic, extra-length chapter of “Who is Wonder Woman?”, the story that launched the WONDER WOMAN monthly! In this arc's conclusion, the combined forces of Wonder Woman's transformed rogues gallery declare an all-out war on the amazing Amazon, compelling Wonder Woman to mend fences and join forces with Donna Troy and Wonder Girl if she's going to survive to answer the question: “Who is Wonder Woman?” And if the return of Allan Heinberg and Terry Dodson isn't enough, there's also an all-new backup by Heinberg and the upcoming art team of ACTION COMICS, Gary Frank & Jonathan Sibal, featuring the secret origins of Wonder Woman, Donna Troy, Wonder Girl, Sarge Steel and Nemesis! All questions will be answered, all secrets revealed!

Countdown to Mystery #1 (of 8) - Get ready for two incredible features in new stories that shine a light on the dark places in the DCU! The Helmet of Fate has landed on Kent Nelson - a man so far down on his luck, he doesn't know what luck is! The transformative nature of the helmet grants him powers he can't begin to comprehend, but will they make his life better, or even worse? Plus, Eclipso becomes the temptress of the DCU, bribing its heroes to the dark side in more ways than one! She succeeds, and the results will shock you!

Cyblade Pilot Season #1 – From Image’s Top Cow Studios comes Cyblade. Back in the day, Cyblade was the Jean Grey on the team Cyberforce. With this new pilot season program, Top Cow is putting out several new series and letting the readers decide what they want to read. Want Cyblade? Vote for it! If any of the upcoming pilot series books sound good to you, let the folks at Top Cow know.

Green Arrow/Black Canary: Wedding Special #1 – They’re getting married. It’s special. What else do you need to know? This is one of the biggest things to happen in the DCU in a little while, so you’ll definitely want to pick this up, DC Nation! Don’t forget to bring your wedding invite – they’ll be checking them at the door!

Marvel Comics Presents #1 – Years ago, Marvel Comics Presents was book containing three or four stories, often featuring new or underused characters. It started with a bang, then ran a little hot and cold through the years, with one of the ultra-highlight stories coming out of this book being Barry Windsor-Smith’s Weapon X storyline. Incredible stuff! Then the book went away. Now it’s back, and it looks good!! Give this one a look-see, folks!

Penance: Relentless #1 (of 5) – For the longest time, Speedball, a founding member of the New Warriors, was like a poor man’s Spider-Man; he bounced around everywhere, knocking out bad guys and cracking jokes. He was a fun, goofy, character and a great addition to the team. Then Stamford happened. And Civil War. He survived, somehow. His powers morphed in the explosion that should have killed him, and now they only work when he’s in pain. He’s also become a much darker, potentially completely insane character and is now a member of the Thunderbolts. Paul Jenkins is writing, so this will likely be awesome. Read it!

Tales of Sinestro Corps: Parallax #1 - Ion is the chosen one of the Green Lantern Corps, whose coming was foretold as a prophecy in the Book of Oa. But now that Kyle Rayner has been possessed by Parallax, can he ever bear the mantle of Ion again? Or will it pass to a completely new bearer? This all-important Sinestro Corps War tie-in reveals the answers, and sets the stage for Green Lantern - and Kyle Rayner - for years to come!

Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite #1 - Once, the Umbrella Academy was unstoppable. Under the tutelage of their guardian and mentor, Dr. Reginald Hargreeves, its members spent their childhoods fighting evil and honing their extraordinary gifts.Until something went terribly wrong. Now, nine years later, the estranged members of the Umbrella Academy are reunited by the death of the only parent they've ever known and the rise of a new and terrible threat. Will they be able to overcome their history for long enough to save the world-one more time? Conceived and written by Gerard Way (of My Chemical Romance), Umbrella Academy features interior art by Eisner Award-nominated artist Gabriel Ba (De:Tales), colors by Eisner Award-winning colorist Dave Stewart, and covers by multiple-Eisner Award-winning painter James Jean (Fables).

World War Hulk #4 (of 5) – The Gamma Bomb against the power of a million exploding suns – who wins, the Hulk or the Sentry? My money’s on the Hulk. I think it’s going to take a Thunder God to stop this Hulk.

Zero Killer #2 (of 6) - Decades after a devastating nuclear war, New York City is mostly underwater, and its once-proud corporate skyscrapers are now looted, skeletal husks inhabited by hostile crime lords and their vicious thugs. The remnants of humanity try to survive at the water's edge, while these brutish gangs and the mysterious paramilitary forces of JOCOM terrorize them. One of the toughest survivors, the bounty hunter known only as Zero, inadvertently saves a young woman named Stark while he's on one of his "trash collecting" missions. Whether Zero likes it or not, Stark's determined to stay by his side. Traveling with him to one of his hideouts, she risks her life when she stumbles onto a closely guarded secret. Elsewhere in this wounded city, an incident with a JOCOM helicopter sparks a series of events that will bring more complications-and danger-to Zero's life! Working for anyone while pledging allegiance to none, Zero is a bounty hunter who hunts the dregs of a ruined society...he is the Zero Killer. An all-new miniseries from Rex Mundi creator Arvid Nelson!

See you at Haven!

Daredevil #100 – Bendis’ run on Daredevil was phenomenal, and then Ed Brubaker took over…and it got better. I wasn’t expecting that. Well, Brubaker is guiding this great comic through its landmark 100th issue (under the new numbering system). If you haven’t been reading this book, you should certainly check it out – it is excellent.

Drafted #1 – What would happen if aliens made contact…and they weren’t friendly? This book answers that question – all wars on earth would cease as every nation bands together to fight off a threat to our entire planet. This new book from Devil’s Due looks very cool. Give it a look-see.

Groo 25th Anniversary Special – Sergio Aragones’ Groo is back! Groo is kind of like Conan the Barbarian gone horribly and hilariously wrong, and this anniversary special will absolutely be more of the same. If you’ve never read Groo before and you enjoy a good laugh, you’ll definitely want to check this out!

JLA Wedding Special #1 - Green Arrow and Black Canary are getting married. This is a wedding special. You should get it. If Green Arrow and Black Canary have a kid, what color will it be?

Potter’s Field #1 (of 3) - Hart Island, off the western end of Long Island, is where New York buries its nameless dead. Called Potter’s Field, it’s the final destination of suicides, victims of drug crimes, stillborns, infants, and anyone else without identification whose expiration date has passed without connection to cause, culprit, or claimant. These are the unfortunate many who pass into the beyond wrapped in a shroud of anonymity, six feet under a nondescript marker that will forever identify them only by a number. For the enigmatic man known only as John Doe, however, this veritable Bermuda Triangle of human existence is unacceptable, and he wages a campaign to find the truth and eventually a name that he can chisel into their stone. An unusual book, but one that looks like a great read. Definitely give this one a look.

Suicide Squad: Raise the Flag #1 (of 8) – Suicide Squad. John Ostrander. That’s right, DC Nation, you’ve got 8 issues of John Ostrander goodness on one of those oddball books where he brings back the Suicide Squad. You know you want it.

Wonder Girl #1 (of 6) - After the disastrous events of AMAZONS ATTACK, Wonder Girl strikes out to tie up some particularly monstrous loose ends. Simple enough, right? Well, you know you’ve got to get your hands on this.

X-Men: Emperor Vulcan #1 (of 5) - The mutant known as Vulcan (and brother to X-Men veterans Cyclops and Havok) has conquered the Shi'ar empire and ascended the throne, but he'll find his reign challenged in X-Men: Emperor Vulcan #1 (of 5)! Written by Christopher Yost (New X-Men) and penciled by Paco Diaz, with covers by "Young Gun" Billy Tan, this all-new, all-different limited series pits the new Starjammers, led by Havok, against his brother's Shi'ar forces in an intergalactic clash of titans! But as both sides delve deeper into this conflict, each must question their positions. Is Vulcan really the savior of the Shi'ar? Do the X-Men, now aligned with the Starjammers, truly belong in this battle? And can Vulcan be stopped after already defeating the X-Men once before? Can he? Huh? Can he? You’ll have to read here to find out!

See you at Haven!
