Batman: Gotham by Gaslight TP – One of the best Elseworlds stories of all time is available again in trade paperback! A seminal Mike Mignola story that any Batman fan worth his salt should read, this was also one of the highlights of DC’s Elseworlds run. You’ve gotta read this one.

Countdown Special: The Flash 80-Pg Giant - The first in a series of 80-page specials, featuring classic stories of The Flash and his legendary Rogues Gallery! This book collects stories from the Silver Age comics The Flash #106, #113, #155 and #174, showcasing the first full appearance of the Rogues Galler, the Trickster, Pied Piper and more! Written by John Broome, art by Carmine Infantino, Joe Giella and Sid Greene, cover by Ryan Sook.

Foolkiller #1 (of 5) - Your notion of justice is about to be turned on its head as one tortured man comes face-to-face with a new kind of vigilante in Foolkiller #1. This is, really, kind of like the Punisher on crack. It’s crazy, but it should be good.

Gotham Underground #1 (of 8) - This 8-part epic explores the underbelly of the DC Universe and ties in to COUNTDOWN! Frank Tieri and COUNTDOWN's J. Calafiore team up to deliver an action-packed tale that features Batman, Robin, Nightwing, Batwoman and just about every other Gotham guest-star imaginable. As more and more evildoers seemingly disappear into thin air, Gotham City finds itself in the midst of a villainous vacuum. Who will rise to commandeer the remainder of Gotham's rogues? As several factions scramble to stake their claim, Batman and friends strategize a counter-attack!

Neozoic #1 - In NEOZOIC, a debut title from publisher Red 5 Comics, there’s nothing special about an 80-foot-long brachiosaurus lumbering past a group of human travelers. It’s been going on for millions of years. However, if those same humans hear the blood-thirty roars of a T-Rex, then it’s time to call the professional super-hunters of the Predator Defense League. Armed only with swords, arrows, warrior cunning, ruthless precision and a lifetime of training, these exceptionally skilled athletes keep the citizens of the walled city of Monanti from becoming a dinosaur’s breakfast. Doesn’t sound like real stories full of excellent characterization, but everything I’ve read about it says it is. Definitely give this one a look-see.

What If?! Planet Hulk - Finally, the one story you demanded: what if Banner, not the Hulk, landed on Sakaar? Could this peaceful planet have tamed the savage Hulk? And then, what if Hulk died and his wife instead led the army against Earth? Hmm. DEFINITELY worth a read.

See You at Haven!!
