But maybe the world is past saving. And maybe the people who still inhabit that world aren't worth saving. After Dark is the story of hidden demons and the passion for survival, set in a future that could very well be ours.

Batman Beyond #1 (OF 6) – Terry McGinnis - the Batman of the future - and an elderly Bruce Wayne - the original Batman - are the sworn protectors of Neo-Gotham, but when someone targets The Dark Knight's old foes, the new Batman must begin a case that reaches back into Bruce Wayne's past and puts Terry's future directly in danger!

Travel with us through the mists of time to the tumultuous days of World War II, when skinny Steve Rogers was transformed into the star-spangled, shield-slinging Super Soldier! And what is a classic Cap adventure without the two-fisted might of his wise-cracking, jaw-jacking sidekick Bucky? Plus: Rampaging robots! Secret underground cities! Dangerous dames and femme fatales! No-good Nazis that deserve a sock to the kisser! All brought to you by acclaimed writer/artist Karl Kesel! Buy U.S. war bonds...and this!

Death of Dracula #1 – He is the legendary Lord of the Vampires. Dracula. Who would dare attempt to overthrow him? Only Dracula's son Xarus, a ruthless and clever upstart with the bold ambition to unite all the world's vampire sects under one flag.

The ultimate battle to control Earth's Creatures of the Night unfolds, with the future of the vampire race - and possibly the Marvel Universe - at stake.

Iron Man: Kiss and Kill #1 – He's got the tux. He's got the tech. He's got the babes. But he'll leave the martini, thank you very much. Tony Stark gets his spy on in these two twisty tales of espionage and international intrigue. First, Joe Ahearne (FANTASTIC FOUR) and Brian Ching (Star Wars) show you why the Black Widow is an Iron Man's best friend when Tony has to go undercover to take down a foe using his own decommissioned tech! Then, Karl Kesel (MARVEL APES) and Eric Nguyen (HALO: BLOODLINE) take you behind the velvet rope when Tony infiltrates the Hellfire Club to help out a wayward thief. Good thing he's got Wolverine to back him up! Wait, no, that's not going to end well...

Last Zombie #1 (OF 5) – Check your fuel tanks, weapons and supplies; buckle down tight; and get ready for a thrill ride that may leave you breathless-or not even breathing! Brian Keene, the horror novelist acclaimed as one of the major forces behind the new era of zombie popularity, is bringing an all-new fright-filled feature to Antarctic Press! Follow the frantic journey of a man seeking his one ray of hope in a post-apocalyptic nightmare United States. The zombies have come and (mostly) gone, but the disease is still out there, threatening the survivors. The country swarms with roving packs of wild animals-and worse, desperate humans-ready to do whatever it takes to survive. Through it all, one man must drive from California to New York to reunite with the woman he loves...before it's too late for either of them! Shocker Award recipient and two-time Bram Stoker Award winner, Keene known worldwide for his novels and short stories of the shambling undead! Keene teams up with A.P. powerhouse Fred Perry (Gold Digger, Fred Perry's Legacy, The Littlest Zombie) to tell a terror-tinged tale for the ages!

X-Campus #1 (OF 4) – It's an all-new, all-different version of the X-Men as told by some of Europe's greatest comics storytellers! In this vivid re-imagining of the X-Men mythos, everything is not as it seems and teenaged versions of Cyclops, Beast, Wolverine, Iceman, Storm and Rogue face a threat worse even than super villains or race-destroying virusesÖ HIGH SCHOOL! When the troubled Anna Raven is recruited to join the Worthington Foundation, a school for the gifted, she jumps at the chance to escape her broken life. But one student who can't control his unusual powers could bring everything crashing down, literally, as he threatens to destroy the entire school!

Penny Arcade Descends on Dark Sun!

With the second season of Dungeons and Dragons Encounters approaching, I'm sure that the hordes of D&D players that overwhelm Haven every Tuesday and Wednesday are eager to get their first taste of the second season's setting. The scorched, dead lands of the Dark Sun world are a far cry from the typical elven woodlands and dimly-lit dungeons of most typical settings, and the harsh qualities of the original Dark Sun setting (previously for AD&D 2nd edition, according to wikipedia) are a thing of legend.

What better way to approach the challenges of this brutal landscape than to get a sneak peak at what you'll be going up against? That's where the Penny Arcade/D&D podcasts come in.

Showcasing the DM'ing talents of Jerry Holkins (aka Tycho Brahe), players Mike Krahulik (aka Gabe), Scott Kurtz (creator of PVP) and Kris Straub ( of Starslip fame) throw themselves against the brutal world of Dark Sun with great success. Success being a relative term when a good day includes only one elven raid on your caravan.

The podcasts are hysterical at moments, and if anything else they'll provide you with a good preview of what's to come with the second season of Dungeon and Dragons Encounters. Experienced players can enjoy the comedy and inside jokes, and new players will find the podcasts to be an accessible introduction to the world of Dark Sun.

So go give it a listen! And if you want to know more good, geeky podcasts, check out this one site I know:

Were his teammates really given names like 'Bulllseye,' 'Silver Sable' and 'Domino'? What did Wilson know, and when did he know it? A bloody massacre in Sinaloa, Mexico has left hundreds dead and disgraced soldier Wade Wilson has a LOT of explaining to do.

Meta 4 #1 (OF 5) – In true McKeever fashion, Meta 4 is a combination of distorted mystery, dark humor, conflict both physical and mental, and friendship – all set against the backdrop of wretchedness and hope. An amnesiac astronaut is helped by Gasolina, a muscular woman who dresses up as Santa all year round. As they travel New York City for one man's answers of self, it becomes an expedition to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves.

Enter: Kid Colt, Doc Holliday, Annie Oakley, Billy the Kid, Red Wolf and the most overrated gun in the West: The Two-Gun Kid! We guarantee the Wild West can't get any wilder.

Cormac counts his friends on one hand, so when he learns that his most recent liege has been murdered, nothing will stop his quest for revenge. By oath, a path of vengence will be marked by the blood of his enemies.

Tom Strong and the Robots of Doom #1 (OF 6) – The super sci-fi adventure continues as one of Alan Moore's most beloved creations returns to comics with ABC veteran Peter Hogan (TERRA OBSCURA) writing and co-creator Chris Sprouse pencilling! Tom Strong and his family prepare to celebrate Tesla's wedding when the unthinkable happens - before their eyes, reality alters to become a world conquered by the Nazis and ruled by Tom's nefarious son Albrecht! What mysterious secret from Tom's past has brought about this catastrophe? And how can things ever be put right again? Featuring a variant cover by fellow ABC alumnus J.H. Williams III (DETECTIVE COMICS, PROMETHEA)!

Young Allies #1 – THE HEROIC AGE IS HERE! The patriotic girl without a world in need of a home. The insecure newbie striving to be a better super hero. The illegal immigrant with a tortured past and a dream. The disillusioned Midwesterner desperate for direction. The veteran team player given a second lease on life. Five heroes against tyranny in all its forms. Five students pushing to make the grade. Five friends together on the road to adulthood. They are NOMAD, ARAÑA, TORO, GRAVITY and FIRESTAR--the YOUNG ALLIES! But even their combined might may not be enough to take on the team of teen terrors known as the BASTARDS OF EVIL!
