Batgirl #1 (of 6) – Fresh from appearances in BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS, the enigmatic Cassandra Cain stars in this six-issue miniseries written by Adam Beechen (COUNTDOWN, ROBIN) with pencils by Jim Calafiore (GOTHAM UNDERGROUND)! Now that Batgirl has finally gained Batman's trust, it's time to conquer her inner demons and prove herself to the rest of the world. This six-issue epic will take Cassandra on an intense, personal journey involving friends, family and foes!

Conan the Cimmerian #1 – As hard as it's been for Conan to return to Cimmeria, things aren't getting any easier as he nears his goal, and he quickly runs afoul of raiders on the Cimmerian borderlands. One stranger welcomes Conan home with a crack to the head, and another begins to weave a tale about Conan's grandfather--another Cimmerian who was filled with wanderlust. Conan the Cimmerian continues Dark Horse Comics' modern revitalization of Robert E. Howard's most beloved character. This is a great jumping-on point for new readers-and our first look at the creative muscle that will fuel Conan's adventures throughout 2008!

Final Crisis: Rogue’s Revenge #1 (of 3) – Written by Geoff Johns Art and covers by Scott Kolins The critically-acclaimed FLASH team of writer Geoff Johns and artist Scott Kolins reunites for a tale of villainy and twisted justice tying in to FINAL CRISIS! Captain Cold and the Rogues were accessories to the murder of Bart Allen. They've become what they never set out to be - wanted! Wanted by the good guys, by former Rogue Pied Piper, and by the Secret Society of Super-Villains. But just as they try to disappear underground, good, old-fashioned revenge yanks them back. And where is the Flash during all of this? It's a Crisis - take a guess.

Frank Frazetta’s Swamp Demon (one shot) – Set in the Land of Iparsia, 500 years before the epic 'Shadows of Mirahan' storyline from FRANK FRAZETTA'S DEATH DEALER, this is a dark fantasy story of druids, demons, and the mysterious and beautiful witch-goddess known as Kallista. Written by critically acclaimed novelist and comics writer JOSHUA ORTEGA (FRANK FRAZETTA'S DEATH DEALER, THE NECROMANCER), and reuniting the RUNES OF RAGNAN team of JOSH MEDORS and JAY FOTOS, this is one tale of Frazetta Comics fantasy that you won't want to miss!

Helm #1 (of 4) – What if you had a magical superpower and it hated your guts?Matt Blurdy's day has gone from crap to worse. Not only did his girlfriend break his heart at work--and in front of all of the video-store patrons--but he just got fired. All that's left to do is minibike his sorry, thirty-year-old (and freshly unemployed!) butt back home to his mom's basement and drown his sorrows in a bucket of extra crispy chicken while contemplating where his life went wrong.On the way home, Matt decides to quiet his aching heart with a brief detour to a garage sale. When an ancient-looking helmet calls to him as "the Chosen One," exhorting him to don the mantle of the "Valhalladrim," Matt touches it with trembling fingers--and is jolted by raw magical power. Holy crap! Is he going to be a superhero? Is this why he always felt special even when everyone else thought he was a loser? Then the helm gets a sense of whom it's dealing with. Suddenly, it changes its tune: "I was mistaken. You are not the chosen one. Good day."But for once in his life, Matt's not taking no for an answer. Not today.

Leaves (one shot) – Inspired by the real-life Naadi fortune-tellers of India and one man's legendary experience, Doctor Max Mellick has the universe at his fingertips - a world-renown heart surgeon with a striking girlfriend and extravagant New York lifestyle. When he attends a friend's funeral in India, something deep within him is forever changed. Identified as evil by an Indian fortune-teller, Max is forced to flee the country -- to save his own life, but more importantly, to preserve his destiny.

Moon Knight #20 – A one shot issue starring Moon Knight’s arch-nemesis: Werewolf by Night! With art by Mike Deodato, Jr., this promises to be a heck of an issue!

Spike: After the Fall #1 (of 4) – Spinning out of the 'First Night' events in Angel: After the Fall comes the official story of Spike's first months in hell. How did he come to be here? Why is Illyria with him? And exactly how did he come to set up shop in a certain famous mansion in Beverly Hills?

Voltron: A Legend Forged #1 – Over twelve centuries ago, the galaxy's best minds secretly bridged magic and science to create a mighty warrior Voltron, their only hope of salvation from the Drule Empire. This is that story, kicking off a brand new epic miniseries spanning through both space and time.
