Black Terror #1 - Spinning out of Alex Ross' Project Superpowers is the first new ongoing series, with this being the first of a four-part story!

This new series is the foundation to the storylines building out of Project Superpowers, and will lead directly into Project Superpowers 2! Who are the Super-Patriots? Who are the 'Inheritors'? And how dows Captain Future fit into all this? And if that wasn't enough, this first issue contains a sneak peak at the Death Defying 'Devil series and the Masquerade series!

Cleaners #1 (OF 4) - In the dark tradition of Los Angeles noir, The Cleaners is a terrifying new mystery series about a ragtag team of for-hire trauma-scene cleaners led by ex-surgeon Robert Bellarmine. Contracted with sanitizing some of the nastiest crime and accident scenes in the tri-county L.A. basin, the team battles against what could only be described as the grim, unknowable face of the supernatural. But by focusing on the scientific explanation, no matter how aberrant or extraordinary, they counteract centuries-old superstition to prove things are seldom what they seem . . .In this miniseries, the cleaners crew takes on a series of gruesome tasks starting with a bloodbath that covers an entire neighborhood. This investigation leads them toward uncovering a disturbing mystery involving missing children, which dates back longer than the history of the city itself.

Dreamer #1 - Creator Lora Innes writes and illustrates the tale of 17-year-old Beatrice 'Bea' Whaley, a student who begins having vivid dreams about a brave and handsome soldier named Alan Warren, a member of an elite group known as Knowlton's Rangers that fought during the Revolutionary War.

When the Giants were aware of this, they knew it was the moment for payback and what could be sweeter than use Thor himself as their pawn of revenge.As Asgard fell, dark creatures began invading the human Empire. Even with the help of Thor, now calling himself the Stormbringer, the Empire was impotent to stop its demise caused by the dark horde led by Master Mayhem. Now, Leviticus Cross stands as the last remaining bastion of the Empire, but a growing fear agains superhuman beings is spreading among its inhabitants unaware the maybe these rejects from society are the only hope for mankind.
