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!
