Astro City: The Dark Age, Book Three #1 (OF 4) – Astro City's longest and most ambitious epic enters a new era and a new jumping-on point. It's the early 1980s - a time of darkness and danger, the era of the Point Man, the Omega Rangers and others. And for Charles and Royal Williams, it's a time for revenge as their pursuit of the man who killed their parents takes Royal deep into the bowels of the PYRAMID organization while Charles reaches heights he never imagined. Will it be morning in America - or will the long night continue? Also featuring the First Family, the debut of Cleopatra and more!

Batman: Battle for the Cowl – The Network #1Batman: Battle for the Cowl is in full swing! A wave of heroes arrive in Gotham City in this one-shot, with hopes of helping stem the tide of chaos threatening to overwhelm everybody! Starring Huntress, Batgirl, Misfit, Ragman, Manhunter and many others. Will these heroes succeed--or will they be victims of Gotham City's madness? And if they do succeed, what does the future hold for them?

Fin Fang Four Return #1 – There was a time when giants walked the Earth! Monstrous creatures! Products of science gone mad!!! FIN FANG FOOM! ELEKTRO! GOOGAM! GORGILLA! Once they were great and terrible, and all trembled in their wake! Now, reduced to human size, they must live in the modern world and earn a buck. So what happens when the freakish foursome tries to play nice? Find out in this one-shot from the depraved minds of acclaimed comedy maestros Scott Gray and Roger Langridge!

Human Torch Comics #1 70th Anniversary Special – Before he became the hero he was created to be, the original Human Torch had to battle his inner demons to stake a claim on the soul he knows he has…and his enemies will stop at nothing to tear him apart to get at the city they want to control. Can he learn to tap into the human side of the Torch, or must he sacrifice himself to save the people he has sworn to protect in this al-new 22 page story? Also included is a bonus 10 page Torch tale from Marvel’s rich history!

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen III: Century 1910 #1 – Alan Moore's familiar cast of Victorian literary characters enters the brave new world of the 20th century, set against a backdrop of London, 1910, twelve years after the failed Martian invasion. In the bowels of the British Museum, Carnacki the ghost-finder is plagued by visions of a shadowy occult order who are attempting to create something called a Moonchild, while on London's dockside the most notorious serial murderer of the previous century has returned to carry on his grisly trade. Working for Mycroft Holmes' British Intelligence alongside a rejuvenated Allan Quartermain, the reformed thief Anthony Raffles, and the eternal warrior Orlando, Miss Murray is drawn into a brutal opera acted out upon the waterfront by players that include the furiously angry Pirate Jenny and the charismatic butcher known as Mac the Knife. This book is the first of three deluxe, 80-page, full-color, perfect-bound graphic novellas, written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Kevin O'Neill, each a self-contained narrative that takes place in three distinct eras, building to an apocalyptic conclusion occurring in our own twenty-first century. The return of the League is not to be missed!

New Mutants #1 – They're back together again! Cannonball, Dani Moonstar, Karma, Sunspot, Magma and Magik have been gathered once more, but can they stand against one of the most powerful X-Villains of all time? Legion is back, and the villain that thrust us into the Age of Apocalypse is scarier than ever. But what does he want with the New Mutants? Zeb Wells (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN) and Diogenes Neves (X-MEN: WORLDS APART) bring your favorite teen heroes into adulthood. Don't miss it!

Power Girl #1 – In her own ongoing series at last! Straight from the pages of JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA, Power Girl starts life anew by building herself a secret identity. But a major villain from her past has other plans in store for the Super Hero, and to get his way, he's holding Manhattan hostage! From the fan-favorite writing team of Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray (JONAH HEX, TERRA) and featuring the vivacious art of Amanda Conner (JSA CLASSIFIED, TERRA) comes this rip-roaring new series!

Terror, Inc.: Apocalypse Soon #1 (OF 5) – Ol’ Skullface sings again! Our charming Mr. Terror – the cursed, undead, rotting, immortal entrepreneur – is back in action! Brutally ripping off his own limbs and “borrowing” other people’s body parts comes in so very handy for the lucrative purposes of assassination, espionage, and other sticky situations. Business is truly recession-proof…but is it plague-proof? Terror better hope so when he agrees to recover a weaponized virus from Middle Eastern terrorists – just one of those odd jobs the unique Mr. Terror is so well suited for. Writer David Lapham (STRAY BULLETS) brings you another bloody, gruesome, hilarious, ultraviolent adventure in the MAX vein, with jaw-dropping art by Koi Turnbull (FATHOM)!
