Astonishing X-Men #25 – Written by WARREN ELLIS Pencils & Wraparound Cover by SIMONE BIANCHI It's the book you've been waiting for. The superstar team of Warren Ellis and Simone Bianchi are ready to take the X-Men to the 'Second Stage'! 'Messiah CompleX' pulled the X-Men team together, 'Divided We Stand' tore them apart. Now the X-Men are back to business -- with a new look, a new base of operations, and a mystery to solve that will take them into previously uncharted territory and test them to their core!

Billy Batson & the Magic of Shazam #1 – Welcome to the brand-new, all-fun adventures of Billy Batson as the World's Mightiest Mortal - Captain Marvel, from acclaimed writer/artist Mike Kunkel (Herobear)! Thanks to a magical rift created when Captain Marvel battled Mr. Mind's monsters, 14-year-old Theo Adam has been returned to Earth from banishment. For Theo, there's just one problem: He can't remember the magic word that gives him the powers of Black Adam. There's only one solution: follow Captain Marvel and get the word out of his alter ego, 11-year-old Billy Batson.

Hellboy: The Crooked Man #1 (of 3) – In 1956, somewhere in the mountains of West Virginia, Hellboy encounters Tom, a man who in his youth sold his soul to a backwoods demon known as the Crooked Man. Together they travel back into the dark heart of the Appalachian mountains to confront that demon and see if Tom's soul can't be saved.The three-issue series reunites Mignola and legendary horror artist Richard Corben (The Bodyssey, Banner, Punisher: The End, Hellboy: Makoma) in a tale of witchcraft rooted in Appalachian folklore.

Joker’s Asylum: The Joker #1 – A cast of top creators lends their talents to THE JOKER'S ASYLUM - a special month-long, weekly series of one-shots starring the greatest villains in Batman's rogues gallery.Each issue tells a special stand-alone story that gives readers an inside look into the insane lives of the Dark Knight's greatest adversaries. And all the stories are narrated by the Asylum's leading homicidal maniac - The Joker!

Madame Xanadu #1 – Legendary creator Matt Wagner (MAGE, GRENDEL, SUPERMAN / BATMAN / WONDER WOMAN: TRINITY) and rising star artist Amy Reeder Hadley present Vertigo's newest ongoing fantasy epic.Centuries long and around the globe her tale winds before the ageless fortuneteller arrives in modern era New York. Her powers of sight can change the course of human events, but how does the seer see herself? Wagner and Hadley answer with painstakingly elegant story and breathtakingly innovative art that is sure to make Madame Xanadu a classic! Issue #1 opens into a medieval kingdom beset by intrigue and foul sorcery. A fair sylph with magic of her own is thrown into the world of war and men - where she encounters a dark stranger who knows not only her past, but her most intimate future as well.

Patsy Walker: Hellcat #1 (of 5) – Fresh off her appearance in Marvel Comics Presents, Patsy Walker: Hellcat, gets her own limited series. Never heard of her, or the name just vaguely tickles your memory? Not to worry - this character could give Kathy Griffin a run for her money on the D-list, and that’s kind of the tone of this book. For what should be a pretty amusing book, give this one a try.

Squadron Supreme 2 #1 – They were gods walking the Earth... powerful but flawed, they dreamed of remaking the world in their image. After their apocalyptic battle with Redstone, and after their terrifying fight with the Ultimate Universe, that dream has become a nightmare. While mankind struggles to rebuild, new heroes appear-and Nick Fury, left behind after the hit ULTIMATE POWER limited series, learns the shocking secrets of four astronauts who returned to Earth...changed. Join comics legend HOWARD CHAYKIN and newcomer MARCO TURINI to ask the question-whatever happened to the Squadron Supreme?

Station #1 (of 5) – Things go from bad to worse in this thriller from Johanna Stokes, staff writer on the hit Sci-Fi Network series EUREKA! You don’t want to be in space when things start going wrong…

Storming Paradise #1 (of 6) – Written by Chuck Dixon Art and cover by Butch Guice It's 1945, and Europe lies in ruins, the Nazi war machine defeated. As the United States looks east to the last remaining Axis power and the final push in a long war, a miscalculation in the Manhattan Project results in annihilation of the team of scientists developing the American atomic bomb. America's only remaining option is Operation Olympus - the invasion of Japan! But the bloody, island-hopping campaign that brings American forces to Japan's doorstep won't prepare the G.I.s for the horror they will face as women, children and the few surviving Japanese soldiers begin the grim preparation for repulsion. This brutal, revisionist look at the second World War could only be handled by master storytellers Chuck Dixon (ROBIN, TEAM ZERO) and Butch Guice (ACTION COMICS, Daredevil). Every angle of this conflict will be touched upon, from the infantry storming the beaches to the Army Air Corps bombing the home islands of the Empire of the Rising Sun to the desperate struggle of the Japanese to save their culture from annihilation, as the true meaning of 'war is hell' is explored in full.

Vix #1 - Vix is the kind of girl most parents adore. Smart and pretty, with a seemingly inexhaustible positive attitude. Why is it then, that she is haunted by vivid flashbacks of horrible things that never occurred? Who are the shadowy forces who watch her, speaking of her destiny as a savior? Just what is her true nature? The answers begin here.


See you at Haven!!
