Avengers Academy #1 – A BRAND NEW ONGOING AVENGERS TITLE BEGINS HERE! Determined to keep the tradition alive, founding Avenger Hank Pym leads a core team of veteran heroes in creating a place where the next generation of Earth's Mightiest can be trained by the greatest of those who preceded them. An institution where everyone who has ever been an Avenger can share their skill, knowledge and experience. The future is in their hands...and in the hands of the six young superhumans chosen to make up the inaugural class. But who are they? And what dark secret will turn their world--and potentially the entire Marvel Universe--upside down by the end of the issue? If you think this is just another teen hero book...the last page shocker will prove you wrong! Writer Christos Gage (AVENGERS: THE INITIATIVE) and superstar artist Mike McKone (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN) unite to bring you a bold new era of greatness!
Batman #700 – Grant Morrison returns to BATMAN with this oversized special! And he's brought an all-star roster of artists along with him including Andy Kubert, Tony Daniel and Frank Quitely to celebrate this milestone 700th issue featuring stories spotlighting each of the Batmen from different eras - Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne. You won't want to miss this blockbuster story that paves the way for the return of Bruce Wayne and sports mind-boggling covers by superstars David Finch (BRIGHTEST DAY) and Mike Mignola (BATMAN: GOTHAM BY GASLIGHT, Hellboy)!
Deadpool: Wade Wilson’s War #1 (OF 4) – 'THE MAN BEHIND THE MASK' - You've seen Deadpool in countless (and we mean countless) comics before - but never like this. Really. Want answers about Deadpool? Like why does he refuse to remove his weird red-and-black mask? Why does he only answer to the name 'Deadpool?' Was he really part of a black bag special ops team that nobody has ever heard of? 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.
Dracula #1 – Bram Stoker's DRACULA colored for the first time! Bram Stoker's legendary novel of gothic horror comes to life in this stunning adaptation by comics legends Roy Thomas and Dick Giordano-newly colored by June Chung. Solicitor Jonathan Harker travels to distant Transylvania and encounters the enigmatic and sinister Count Dracula unearthing dread secrets about his foreign host and his castle. The horror continues in issue #2 as Dracula makes his way to England, setting his sights on Lucy Westenra and Mina Murray, Jonathan's fiancé, and we're introduced to Abraham Van Helsing, the one man who may be able to stop the vampire lord's terrifying plans.
Dream Logic #1 – This 48-page art book features a new story and art, a David Mack sketchbook, step-by-step art techniques with commentary, and loads of art and extras you've never seen before -- including figure drawings, a new tarot card set, new paintings and original scripts! Plus: art cut from the DVD documentary film on Mack's work, The Alchemy of Art: David Mack DVD, from Herovideoproductions.com.
James Patterson’s Murder of King Tut #1 – The Murder of King Tut adapts best-selling author James Patterson's NY Times Bestselling novel in this exciting new series. As we visit the Egyptian landscapes back in the time of the Boy King (with art by Christopher Mitten), we also follow the trials and tribulations of his discoverer, Howard Carter, as he searches tomb after tomb looking for what most other archeologists are certain doesn't exist, the Tomb of Tutankhamen and the clues to his controversial and mysterious death (art by Ron Randall)!
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.
Predators #1 (OF 4) – A team of Navy Seals is in the midst of a firefight when it suddenly goes dark. They awake to find themselves in a new and more deadly environment, stalked by a strange enemy. One by one these special-ops officers are killed by an unseen threat, until only one man remains. All alone in a strange world, he must do what he knows best-survive against all odds.
Rawhide Kid #1 (OF 4) – The best-dressed gunslinger the Wild West ever knew is back in the saddle again -- and this time, he's riding with a posse! That's right, pardners, it's a brand new rip-roaring adventure of the Rawhide Kid! When Wyatt and Morgan Earp are taken hostage by Cristo Pike and his pack of pistoleros, Rawhide has no choice but to put together a posse of the greatest western heroes in the Marvel Universe - to rescue the Earp brothers and bring Pike to justice. 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.
Robert E. Howard’s Hawks of Outremer #1 (OF 4) – BOOM! Studios brings you an epic story by Conan creator Robert E. Howard published in comic book form for the first time ever! As a wandering warrior born and bred on the battlefield, Cormac FitzGeoffrey is a renowned fighter, a ruthless adversary, and a man who is no stranger to the ways of bloodshed and violence. 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!
