Aladdin: Legacy of the Lost #1 (OF 3) – (W) Ian Edginton (A) Patrick Reilly (C) Marko Djurdjevic [A], Arthur Suydam [B], Clayton Crain [1:10 Incentive] From the mystical city of Shambhalla to the ends of the Earth comes a tale of magic, mystery and the motivations of power. It is the world of Ala ad-Din, better known as ALADDIN. Thief, gambler, liar and cheat, born in a brothel and raised on the streets, Aladdin falls under the eye of the sorcerer Maugrah, who has scoured the sands for the Dreaming Jewel-a lost relic of shattering power, able to steal the magic of the Djinn of the Lamp and reshape the world in his own dangerous design. But to do so, he requires a mystical ability carried within Aladdin's blood...power that not even Aladdin himself knows about. An epic adventure that takes the classic saga to dark, new territories with multi-Eisner nominated writer Ian Edginton!

Disney’s Hero Squad #1 – Bursting from the pages of Walt Disney's Comics And Stories comes Disney's Hero Squad in an all-new ongoing series! Super Goof! The Duck Avenger! Eega Beeva! The Red Bat! Disney's mightiest in their own book, because you demanded it!

Legends Enchanted #0 – You think you know them. Think again. Violently ripped from the pages of folklore come the Enchanted, supernatural immortals living in a dark, steampunk, creature-infested world where nature, technology and foul magic are in constant conflict. When the twisted, burnt remains of the half-wooden, half-mechanical warrior, Pinocchio are discovered, wolf-hunter Red Hood and giant-killer Jack realize the fragile rules of their existence have been shattered. With the help of other powerful Enchanted (the mercenary Goldilocks and psychic exterminators Hansel and Gretel), Jack and Red team up on an adventure to stop whatever, or whoever, is destroying their powers and murdering their kind. The last time Radical debuted their $1 books, they quickly sold out and had to go to a second printing. Don't miss out again on the limited-to-one-print-run event.

Red Sonja: Wrath of the Gods #1 (OF 5) – While the adventures of Queen Sonja continue to thrill and amaze readers both new and old, follow the She-Devil with a Sword in a classic tale of the primordial gods themselves as Red Sonja faces the 'Wrath of the Gods.' Written by Luke Leiberman and Ethan Ryker, featuring the returning art of Walter (RED SONJA) Geovani, WRATH OF THE GODS explores the mysteries of Sonja's past, while presenting her with the malicious threat of Loki in the present! Can Thor, the God of Thunder, and Odin, the All-Father, aid the warrior woman and prevent their fellow god from destroying the very world?

Sarah Winchester #1 – Sarah Winchester, heir to the famous Winchester guns fortune, was well known in her time as an eccentric women obsessed with the occult; so much so that she designed her famous mansion with the sole purpose of trying to contact the dead. Vado shared that the real-life mansion was the inspiration behind Disney’s “Haunted Mansion,” a licensed property SLG had previously published. The new series will be a mix of history and horror, with Sarah Winchester being portrayed in a saner light as her occult obsession is explained as having a purpose beyond the crazy assumptions that have come before.

Toy Story #1 – Following up on the hit mini-series, this new ongoing features all new, never before seen original stories with your favorite Disney/Pixar's Toy Story characters. The Toys are back in town!

Ultimate Comics: X #1 – Who-or what-is Ultimate X? The answers and even more secrets arrive in the all new ULTIMATE X ongoing bi-monthly series from the superstar dream team of JEPH LOEB and ART ADAMS. Wolverine is dead. Captain America is a fugitive. The Fantastic Four disbanded. Lives have been destroyed and nothing can ever be the same-is there any hope left? It all begins with a search for a brand new character whose identity will leave jaws on the floor and change the Ultimate Universe forever.

Wizards of Mickey #1 – The epic Wizards of Mickey tale continues here in its own all new ongoing series! Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy continue to struggle in the Grand Wizard's tournament, determined to win back the Diamagic from Peg-Leg Pete the Great! But who is the mysterious master that pulls Pete's strings?

Zorro: Matanzas #1 (OF 4) – A classic tale of Zorro never before told! While the Eisner nominated team of Dynamite's Zorro takes a well-deserved break, Dynamite presents a magnificent tale of Zorro! Featuring a thrilling script by the legendary Don McGregor and incredible art by Mike Mayhew, Matanzas is a classic Zorro adventure - presented here for the very first time! Thrill to the adventures in this very first issue!

Avengers vs Agents of Atlas #1 – Spacetime is being selectively eroded by an unknown force. To stop the effect, the Agents of Atlas seek the help of the Avengers- and find a much earlier version of the team than they expected: Captain America, Iron Man, Wasp, Giant-Man and Thor are together again, with the atomic wildcard THE HULK!

Darkness: Shadows & Flames (ONE SHOT) – A Tale of The Darkness! Go back to the turn of the 20th Century and read a tale of lost love, the depravity of man and powers beyond our understanding in the tradition of H.P. Lovecraft! Salvador Gomes is a broken man. He has lost his beautiful wife and young daughter in a fire and now spends restless days and sleepless nights looking for solace. In desperation, he makes a bargain with 'The Shadow God,' but every bargain has its price.

Joe the Barbarian #1 (OF 8) – Having an overactive imagination can get a kid through a lot, but it doesn't change the facts: Joe's still the kid in school that can't fit in. He's the victim of bullies. His dad died overseas in the Iraq war. And then there's the Type 1 diabetes he has to live with. So is it insulin-deprived delirium or something much, much bigger that transports Joe to a land inhabited by all his toys - from ninja commandos to action robots to magical knights to star fleet captains? Is Joe really the savior of this wild fantasyland that's been held under siege by dark magic and evil forces? With the help of a samurai rodent, is he ready to take back besieged castles and win the freedom of an oppressed people? Or is he just an over imaginative boy who could die if he doesn't take his meds? White-hot writer Grant Morrison follows up his phenomenal BATMAN AND ROBIN with an epic adventure that's Home Alone by way of Lord of the Rings accompanied with to-die-for art by future superstar Sean Murphy (YEAR ONE: BATMAN/SCARECROW, HELLBLAZER).

JLA #1 Special – Written by Brad Meltzer, Mark Waid and Brian Azzarello; Art by Ed Benes, Ivan Reis, Andy Kubert, Adam Hughes, Jim Lee and others; Cover by Ed Benes. Previously offered as part of DC Direct's JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA ACTION FIGURE BOX SET, this special collects JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #1 and origin stories from 52 #12, 22, 46 and 51 and ABSOLUTE SUPERMAN: FOR TOMORROW.

Solomon Kane: Death’s Black Riders #1 (OF 4) – Taking place after the events in Solomon Kane: The Castle of the Devil -- but written to stand on its own -- this new series delves deep into the horrors scattered throughout Germany's Black Forest. When Kane comes across gypsies being terrorized by roving bandits, he's not sure what's worse -- the bandits who wish to rob and rape innocent travelers or the evils that spew forth from the forest, intent on killing every man and woman around! With creature designs by Eisner Award-winning artist Guy Davis, this series uses Robert E. Howard's "Death's Black Riders" fragment and the "Rattle of Bones" short story as springboards to launch into a suspenseful and terrifying new excursion with Howard's troubled Puritan hero. Dark Horse's new Solomon Kane series features the return of writer Scott Allie and artist Mario Guevara (The Lone Ranger and Tonto), who are joined by colorist Juan Ferreyra (Rex Mundi) and cover artist Darick Robertson (The Boys, Transmetropolitan)! "With art and writing that perfectly captures the pulp weirdness of his birth, Solomon Kane officially becomes the only Puritan I've ever been a fan of. Don't miss out on these weird tales, you'll regret it." -Ed Brubaker

Spider: Judgment Knight – If you like your justice served ice cold, baby, The Spider is it! The body count is high as the most ruthless crime fighter of all time stars in his very own wide-vision graphic novel! No one comes close to how deliciously deadly The Spider dispatches justice. The criminals are not left behind for the police; they are not rehabilitated. They are no longer a burden on society, as The Spider just mows them down with extreme prejudice! A murderous ghost of crime terrorizes New York City, dealing gruesome agonized death to any who stand in the way of his quest for power. The city reeling, threatened with wholesale murder, The Spider finds himself wounded and caught in a desperate battle within America's very symbol of freedom, the Statue of Liberty. At stake, the fate of millions and the life of the woman he loves - Nita van Sloan! Painted in gorgeous noir black & white!

AVP: Three World War #1 (OF 6) – A centuries-old interstellar conflict threatens humanity's very existence as a long-lost Predator clan stakes its claim for galactic dominance, intent on exterminating its rival clan, the selfsame trophy hunters who have plagued Earth's history and every world they have touched. And if the advanced technology and military precision of this new threat weren't enough, they have an even more terrifying weapon at their disposal -- Aliens, weaponized and under their malefic control. This puts earthmen in the dangerous position of parlaying with the same alien warriors who have relentlessly hunted them, and who better to carry out the negotiations than Machiko Noguchi, the only human known to have spent time alongside the Hunters.

Conan the Cimmerian: Weight of Crowns (1-Shot) – Living legend Darick Robertson (The Boys, Transmetropolitan, Wolverine) focuses his powerful storytelling talents on Conan--his favorite barbarian hero! In this "adult fable" that Robertson writes AND draws, Conan travels away from Cimmeria to search for a mercenary job that will bring him the fierce joy of battle and the spoils of war. Intrigued by a leader known as the "Mad King of Gaul," Conan joins a band of brutes who are defending the Aquilonian border from incursions and who enjoy living in a lush valley that the Mad King claims for his own. These warriors soon believe that Conan may be a more fitting successor to their leader than the supposed king's own son--setting Conan on a potentially disastrous course! Taking place between the Cimmeria and Black Colossus story arcs in the Conan the Cimmerian monthly series, this issue is perfect for both longtime readers and for intrigued fans looking for a dynamic one-shot punch from the visceral and cerebral Darick Robertson.
