A-Team War Stories: Hannibal #1 – A standalone prequel to this summer's most anticipated movie! Colonel John 'Hannibal' Smith is never stuck for a plan. But how is he going to cope with a mission in which everything goes wrong and he might just wind up on the wrong side of Saddam Hussein in this Desert Storm flashback adventure we're calling... 'The Luckiest Man In Iraq.'

American Vampire #1 – Witness the birth of a brand new species of vampire in this new ongoing series that begins with five extra-sized issues featuring back-to-back stories by exciting new writer Scott Snyder and the master of horror himself, Stephen King! When notorious outlaw Skinner Sweet is attacked by an old enemy (who happens to be a member of the undead), the first American vampire is born... a vampire powered by the sun, stronger, fiercer, and meaner than anything that came before. Plus... Pearl Jones is a struggling young actress in 1920s Los Angeles. But when her big break brings her face-to-face with an ancient evil, her Hollywood dream quickly turns into a brutal, shocking nightmare.

Fade to Black #1 (OF 5) – Desert survival is hard, even without a cannibal cult in the mix. Five people will find that out as they embark on the most terrifying journey of their young lives...only none of them are what they seem--and neither is anything else!-- in this gut-wrenching horror miniseries.

GFT Presents: Neverland #1 (OF 6) – The creators of Grimm Fairy Tales and Return to Wonderland bring you a dark new addition to the Grimm Universe. Neverland was once a magical paradise until it fell under the rule of the evil creature known only as Pan. It has now become a world that haunts children's nightmares. Don't miss the #1 landmark issue of this all new series!

Hercules: Fall of an Avenger #1 (OF 2) – Agents of Atlas Back-up by JEFF PARKER & REILLY BROWN When the most beloved Olympian of all time falls, who will mourn him? Acclaimed INCREDIBLE HULK artist Ariel Olivetti joins writers Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente for a two-part mini-epic that marks the end of an era and the beginning of something utterly unexpected for Hercules, the Lion of Olympus. Bring your hankies -- and your golden adamantine maces -- as an all-star cast including Thor, Namor, Namora, Snowbird, Alflyse, Bruce Banner, and of course, Amadeus Cho send off the Son of Zeus with shocking tales, smash-tastic action, bawdy tomfoolery, and heart-rending drama that will change the course of Marvel's marvelous mythological milieu... forever! Plus: There are some missions that require a woman's touch- so the rest of the Agents of Atlas hang back and let Venus and Namora go out and show their stuff!

X-23 #1 – X-23 has spent her short life being used by those in power, from the military to the X-Men. But when she is forced to confront a being who can control her life with nothing but a thought, will X-23 finally learn how to fight -- not for others, but herself? Guest-starring NYX!

X-Factor Forever #1 – THEY'RE BACK! Once they were Xavier's young charges: mutant teens who bore the responsibility of protecting a world that hated them. But time has hardened these five X-Men, forcing them to reimagine their mission and purpose. And now, the original dream-team returns to fight the one threat that's haunted them since the day they took on the X-Factor name. Join legendary X-scribe Louise Simonson as she reunites with the title and characters she made famous for an epic in the FOREVER tradition!
