Abe Sapien: The Drowning #1 (of 5) - A century ago, paranormal investigator Edward Grey fought and destroyed a powerful warlock off the island of Saint Sebastian. In the early 1980s, the B.P.R.D.'s newest agent was sent to retrieve the warlock's remains. But Abe Sapien is ill prepared for the supernatural forces that block his way. Written by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, and featuring the haunting art of Jason Shawn Alexander (Damn Nation, The Secret, The Escapists), Abe Sapien: The Drowning's the story of Hellboy and B.P.R.D. mainstay Abe Sapien's first solo adventure.

Boys #15 - 'Good For The Soul,' Part 1. The most talked about comic of the year continues from Dynamite Entertainment, writer/co-creator Garth Ennis and artist/co-creator Darick Robertson! Hughie visits The Legend, determined to find out more about The Boys - their history, their personalities, and their mysterious hidden agenda! Meanwhile, Annie January (alias Starlight) has her own doubts about membership of The Seven. This storyline also reveals a little more about the other members of the team - beginning with Butcher, and his relationship with CIA director Susan Rayner!

Clandestine #1 (of 5) - Alan Davis' freaky family returns! They've existed, hidden among mankind for centuries, a mysterious bloodline of superhumans, eternal and apart. And all they've desired is to be left alone, to pursue their individual interests in peace. But now, the existence of their hidden clan is threatened with exposure by the activities of one of their youngest siblings, Rory Destine, who aspires to be the costumed crimefighter called the Crimson Crusader! And now that the cat's been let out of the bag, who or what is going to come calling at the Destine family's Ravenscroft doorway? This was the cream of the crop of the Marvel UK line during its brief run, and it was a flat-out awesome book. I don’t expect this run to be anything less than incredible.

Lords of Avalon: Sword of Darkness #1 (of 6) - In a world where Camelot is ruled by Lord Kerrigan, the peasant Seren has become a pawn between the rulers of light and the rulers of darkness. But the talented seamstress faces a dilemma after Lord Kerrigan kidnaps her: Is Kerrigan truly the demon others portray him to be, or is he her savior in disguise? Jump into this new twist on Arthurian legend, adapted from best-selling author Kinley MacGregor. MacGregor, known for her historical romance novels, is the pen-name of Sherrilyn Kenyon, the best-selling and award-winning American author known for her supernatural romance and vampire novels.

Scud: The Disposable Assassin #21 - After a decade of anticipation, Rob Schrab and Image Comics finally release SCUD: THE DISPOSABLE ASSASSIN #21, the beginning of the four-issue finale for his ever-popular death dealing robot.

"Even after all this time it's hard to say goodbye," writer/artist Rob Schrab said. "I was working on a thirty-two page conclusion to include in a collection of all the previous material, but it grew to well over a hundred pages. Image and I agreed this warranted its own release and it's for the better. The ending is now an entirely different beast, one I couldn't be any prouder about."
