As the War of Light rages on, the prophecy of the BLACKEST NIGHT descends upon us, with Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps at the center of it all. Don't miss this 8-issue epic taking the DCU beyond the grave!

Creepy Comics #1 – What's black and white and clawing its way onto your reading list? It's the newly resurrected Creepy, of course! Now, don't fret, my putrid pets -- these new terror tales are cut from the same cursed cloth as the outlandish originals, telling contemporary horror stories with gorgeously ghoulish art from a lineup that'll make you lose your head! Original Creepy artist Angelo Torres teams up with devilish Dan Braun on "Hell Hound Blues"; Michael Woods and artist Saskia Gutekunst serve up a dose of "Chemical 13"; Neil Kleid and Brian Churilla provide "All the Help You Need" at a weird weight-loss camp; and jaundiced Jason Shawn Alexander brings his phenomenal painting skills to Joe Harris's "The Curse!" Plus Bernie Wrightson, the return of "Loathsome Lore," and more. All this, plus one classic story from Uncle Creepy's dank dungeon, and you've got 48 freakish pages of terror to bring home to mummy!

Descendant #1 (OF 3) – Descendant,” follows the adventures of Rayne Santiago, a South American refugee and now a U.S. counter terrorism agent, believed to be the descendant of an ancient Incan fire God. The series creators, writers Mike Dolce and Marcus Perry, along with artist Mariano Navarro, spoke with CBR News about “Descendant,” it’s blend of action and fantastic elements, and also about bananas. Rayne is forced to return to her South American homeland of Martagal when she receives word that her brothers have been abducted by a rogue pharmaceutical conglomerate bent on using their DNA to manufacture super powers,” Mole Dolce told CBR. “Exiled from her country years ago for abusing her own innate pyrokinetic abilities, Rayne must not only win back the trust of her people, but also overcome her fear of the powers that lay dormant inside her in order to rescue her brothers from the regime’s sinister commander, Dr. Alexis Bane.”

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep #1 (OF 24) – Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, the book that inspired the film Blade Runner, comes to Boom! with backmatter by Warren Ellis! Visionary sci-fi author Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep has been called "a masterpiece ahead of its time, even today" and served as the basis for the Ridley Scott film Blade Runner. San Francisco lies under a cloud of radioactive dust. The World War killed millions, driving entire species to extinction, and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remained coveted any living creature, and for people who couldn't afford one, companies built incredibly realistic fakes: horses, birds, cats, sheep--even humans. Rick Deckard is an officially sanctioned bounty hunter tasked to find six rogue androids--they're machines, but look, sound, and think like humans. Clever, and most of all, dangerous humans. Rick Deckard, Pris, The Voight-Kampff Test, Nexus 6 androids, the Tyrell Corporation: join Boom! Studios as the complete novel is adapted into the comic book medium, mixing all new panel-to-panel continuity with the actual text from the novel in an innovative, groundbreaking 24-issue maxi-series illustrated by acclaimed Wolf artist Steven Dupre for the science-fiction publishing event of the year! Covers by Bill Sienkiewicz, Dennis Calero, Moritat, and Scott Keating.

Long ago, in the deepest dark of The Black Forest, two brothers--Peter Piper and his older brother, Max--encountered ominous forces that changed them both irreparably. Thus begins an epic tale of sibling rivalry, magic, music, and revenge that spans medieval times to the present day, when their deadly conflict surfaces in the placid calm of modern day Fabletown. PETER & MAX: A FABLES NOVEL features the deft prose of award-winning comic book writer Bill Willingham and lush ink spot illustrations from FABLES artist Steve Leialoha. The novel also reveals secrets of some of the regular FABLES series cast members, including Bigby Wolf, Frau Totenkinder, and Bo Peep.

Last Resort #1 – A zombie epic that pays homage to 1970s exploitation films and disaster movies like Airport and Towering Inferno. In an entertaining and darkly over-the-top celebration of gore and sex, The Last Resort transforms a Caribbean paradise into a biological wasteland populated with homicidal flesh-eating vacationers! From the acclaimed writers of Jonah Hex and Uncle Sam & the Freedom Fighters!
