BATMAN, BATTLE FOR THE COWL: MAN BAT #1 – Man-Bat enters the Battle for the Cowl! Spinning out of the events in BATTLE FOR THE COWL, Gotham City is in chaos and the villains of Arkham Asylum are running amok. One such villain is the evil Doctor Phosphorus, who seeks out another scientist in this one-shot to help him grow even more powerful. But when that scientist is Kirk Langstrom, a.k.a. Man-Bat, Doctor Phosphorus--and all of Gotham--will get much more than they bargained for!

CARS ROOKIE #1 (OF 4) – Cars fans, start your engines! Before the big Dinoco 400 race, rookie sensation Lightning McQueen is interviewed by Darrel Cartrip.

DEAD ROMEO #1 (OF 6) – Jonathan Romero, aka 'Dead Romeo,' was the lead singer of the '80s rock band 'The Dead Romeos.' But that was before a mysterious set of circumstances turned him into a vampire and sent him straight to Hell.Now he's back on Earth and he has a difficult choice to make: Kill his true love and earn his permanent release from eternal damnation - or protect her and burn for eternity. Either way, someone is going to die! It's vampires, romance, rock and dismemberment like you've never seen before! New writer Jesse Blaze Snider joins artist Ryan Benjamin for a bloodsucking good time in this all-new 6-issue miniseries.

DESTROYER #1 (OF 5) – For sixty years, Keen Marlowe has been a super hero, taking down bad guys, fighting the good fight. But it's is about to come crashing to an end. See, Marlowe is dying -- maybe today, maybe tomorrow, the only question is when. But Marlowe isn't about to go quietly into the night. Before he goes, he intends to leave the world a safer place for his family. And if that means hunting down -- and murdering -- every super-villain he can, so be it. They don't call him 'Destroyer' for nothing.

FLASH REBIRTH #1 (OF 5) – Through the decades, many heroes have taken the mantle of The Flash, but they all ride the lightning that crackles in the wake of the greatest hero the DC Universe has ever known, the man who sacrificed himself to save the Multiverse: Barry Allen! Following the events of Final Crisis, Barry has beaten death and returned to a fast-paced world that a man out of time wouldn't recognize. Or is it a world that is only just now catching up? All the running he's done before was just a warm up for the high-speed race that he and every other Flash must now run, because even though one speedster might have beaten death, another has just turned up dead! From Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver, the visionaries responsible for the blockbuster GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH and THE SINESTRO CORPS WAR, comes the start of an explosive and jaw-dropping epic that will reintroduce to the modern age the hero who single-handedly birthed the Silver Age of comics! DC history will be made, and the Flash legacy will be redefined!

IRREDEEMABLE #1 – Get ready for the newest original ongoing superhero series from Mark Waid! Irredeemable dares to ask the question: what if the world's greatest hero decided to become the world's greatest villain? It's a twilight of the superheroes-style story that examines super-villains from the writer of Kingdom Come and Empire! With a special afterword by Grant Morrison.

MARVEL ASSISTANT SIZE SPECTACULAR #1 (OF 2) – Rejects, benchwarmers, lovable losers, and might-be Avengers assemble! In the beloved tradition of Assistant Editors' Month, we the staffers are sick and tired of our bosses telling nothing but Wolverine stories, Spider-Man stories, Captain America storiesÖand we're taking matters into our own oddball hands!Little guys can be heroes, tooÖand when this motley crew of misfits gets their shot - in stories featuring Elsa Bloodstone, American Eagle, D-Man, the daughter of Galactus, Mini Marvel cake-eating Hawkeye, Candidate Luke Cage, and more - it could be the start of something big!Don't miss this two-issue anthology of also-rans who might - just MIGHT - ascend to the A-list! (Fingers crossed. Really we're just hoping this doesn't get us fired.)

PROTOTYPE #1 (OF 6) - Exploding from the highly anticipated game comes the hyperkinetic world of PROTOTYPE! New York homicide detectives continue to track a serial killer but soon discover all is not as it seems.Their investigation takes them into uncharted territory, and tensions flare as the detectives come up against a black ops unit with a mysterious agenda of its own!

SEAGUY: THE SLAVES OF MICKEY EYE #1 (OF 3) – In 2008 alone, superstar writer Grant Morrison killed Batman, put the entire DC Universe through its FINAL CRISIS and concluded the unanimously beloved ALL-STAR SUPERMAN. But what does a writer who's written every significant Super Hero do when he can create any Super Hero he wants? The answer, of course, is SEAGUY! Morrison (THE INVISIBLES) rejoins original SEAGUY artist Cameron Stewart (SEVEN SOLDIERS) in an all-new adventure starring the cult-favorite character! In Seaguy's cartoon future world, everyone is a Super Hero and no one dies. It's absolutely perfect...Or is it? In this follow-up to the cult 2004 miniseries, Seaguy resurfaces with a sinister new partner, a hatred of the sea and a rebel restlessness he can't explain. Why are Doc Hero and his ex-archenemy Silvan Niltoid, the Alien from Planet Earth, whispering strange equations? Why is Death so useless? And can that really be the ghost of Chubby Da Choona mumbling uncanny warnings and dire prophecies of ultimate catastrophe? When the grotesque powers lurking behind the corporation known as Mickey Eye and the Happy Group attempt to erase Seaguy's entire existence, can he possibly get it together in time to save a world so far gone it can't even imagine the horror lying in wait? Find out here in Morrison's own personal reframing of the Super Hero concept for the 21st century.

UNIVERSAL WAR ONE: REVELATIONS #1 (OF 3) – The Earth has been annihilated. Forever. Now the Purgatory Squadron knows who its enemies are, but can they defeat a foe willing to murder twenty billion people?The survivors of the Purgatory Squadron land in a world without hope.

Got a couple hundred thousand dollars to spare? There's a copy of Action Comics #1 up for auction.

The Associated Press has a video report.
