Calling Cthulhu Chronicles #1 – An all-new ongoing Lovecraft-inspired supernatural horror series with a decidedly modern spin from superstar writing team Michael Alan Nelson and Johanna Stokes! A cruise ship comes to port, hundreds are aboard dead - but why? Clayton Diggs is a pharmaceuticals salesman who discovers his sister has committed herself to an insane asylum; she's checked herself in, fearing she'll hurt herself or someone else. All across the world, ordinary people in an ordinary world find themselves drawn by fate to see darkness and despair unlike anything they ever could imagine. Meanwhile, a cult makes its move, believing that there is a great one sleeping that will hear... The Calling!
Comic Book Guy: The Comic Book #1 (OF 5) – At last! Comic book-dom's portly purveyor of four-color fiction has his own comic mini-series! Just imagine what is in store for you when an entire comic book title is given over to explore the adventures and pet peeves of one of the comic industry's very own. Is Comic Book Guy destined to be the subject of a story arc that ranks among such notable classics as Watchmen, Maus: A Survivor's Tale, The Dark Knight Returns, Marvels, and X-Men: The Dark Phoenix Saga? And will he live to tell - or, at the very least, blog - the tale that will make fanboys weep and bring a nation to its knees?
Dr. Solar: Man of the Atom #1 – Empowered by a thermonuclear catastrophe, Doctor Solar discovers that he can control energy. Immeasurable strength is his at a whim. Power beyond imagination courses through his body. But he knows that the same kind of science run amok that created him can also empower the wicked. In the aftershock of the cataclysm that created Doctor Solar, ripples throughout space time imbue one Whitmore Pickerel with the power to create life -- which he uses to serve his selfish desires and reckless ambitions. His newly created being, Leviathan, invulnerable and immeasurably strong, clashes with the Man of the Atom in a fierce battle that ravages the city. Meanwhile, for his personal amusement, Pickerel creates Glow, a living fantasy of unearthly charms . . . and deadly possibilities!
Gorilla Man #1 (OF 3) – 'If you kill the magical Gorilla-Man, you become immortal.' Shooting from the pages of ATLAS, comes an all-new exploration of fan-favorite GORILLA MAN! Yes, Ken Hale is blessed with might and cursed with inhumanity, but you don't know the entire tale, and how his history may destroy his present! See his storied past as an Agent of Atlas, a soldier of fortune, an ally of the Avengers, and a Howling Commando! Three incredible issues by JEFF PARKER (ATLAS, THUNDERBOLTS, FALL OF THE HULKS ALPHA) and GIANCARLO CARACUZZO (ATLAS)! Plus a 'Many Legends of the Gorilla Man' reprint.
Mighty Crusaders #1 (OF 6) – Fellow Americans, we are pleased to introduce you to your official government superhero team - the Mighty Crusaders! The Red Circle has closed, and the mystery around it has grown into a full-blown conspiracy that The Shield, The Web, The Comet, Inferno, Fly-Girl and War Eagle must publicly investigate. But first, the team faces great loss and great obstacles, even when it comes to dealing with each other!
Pat Lee’s Widow Warriors #1 – BOOK 1: FAMILY HONOR. Over a thousand years ago, the great kingdom of China was under constant threat of invasion by powerful tribes and warring states along its rugged western border. For generations, one fiercely-patriotic clan of warriors - the 'Yang' - battled bravely in the nation's defense. The widows of the clan pleaded with the Emperor, whose own court had become weakened by corruption and greed, to send reinforcements. But none came. Soon, the last remaining Yang soldiers were overwhelmed by a sea of bloodthirsty invaders. Distraught and incensed, the Yang widows - a few hundred strong and many of whom also seasoned warriors - took arms and set off to the western border. But even before reaching the enemy, the journey itself would be fraught with peril. In their determination to avenge the deaths of loved ones, the Widow Warriors would face the full fury of nature's most destructive forces, a vast enemy army with sorcery and monsters on its side, and perhaps most powerful of all, the demons within themselves.
Predators: Preserve the Game One-Shot – Set a few weeks after the climax of Robert Rodriguez's Predators film, the remaining survivors still struggle to find some existence on the alien planet where they are hunted. Hope of outlasting the alien hunters still lives; they have a plan to get away, and they just might be able to pull it off!
Royal Historian of Oz #1 – Frank Fizzle wishes his writer father would have just a single original idea, but instead Jasper Fizzle sees himself as the new 'Royal Historian of OZ' as he insists on writing new OZ stories. When the failed writer discovers that Oz really exists, he makes an error in judgment that brands him a criminal in two worlds. Can Frank save the day and redeem the Fizzle family name, or will the drizzly ghost of the Wicked Witch of the West destroy them all?
Sixth Gun #1 – During the darkest days of the Civil War, wicked cutthroats came into possession of six pistols of otherworldly power. The Sixth Gun - the most dangerous of the weapons - vanished. When the gun surfaces in the hands of an innocent girl, dark forces reawaken. Villains thought long dead set their sights on retrieving the gun and killing anyone in their path. Only Drake Sinclair, a gunslinger with a shadowy past, stands in their way.
Strange Science Fantasy #1 – This tongue-in-cheek commentary is written and illustrated by award-winning creator Scott Morse. Each chapter is a seemingly stand-alone tale, grounded by insane landscapes and surprising characters. Take, for instance, this first installment's 'Dawn of the Gearheads!,' where hip hot-rodders take over a world gone crazy, DaddyO! Or the cinema-minded noir throw-back 'The Projectionist.' Strange Science Fantasy harkens back to the inspired pre-hero comics of the Golden Age! Issue 1 offers a full 28 pages of story and art plus a bonus 1-page Paul Pope strip!
Sweets #1 (OF 5) – A spree killer terrorizes New Orleans days before Hurricane Katrina makes landfall. Detective Curt Delatte just buried his only daughter, he's in no condition to work. But when the bodies pile up, he masks his grief and joins the hunt through the bowels of the Big Easy. It won't be long until his city, and his evidence, gets washed away. Chamberlain, a native of South Louisiana, makes his writing debut with this dark and gritty miniseries.
Uncanny X-Men: Heroic Age #1 – Hot on the heels of SECOND COMING, see how the X-Men fit into the Marvel Universe as a whole. Three stories by Matt Fraction and artists Whilce Portacio (UNCANNY X-MEN), Jamie McKelvie (SIEGE: LOKI) and Steven Sanders (S.W.O.R.D.) taking you all around the Marvel Universe!
X-Files/30 Days of Night #1 (OF 6) – Two of the most popular horror properties of the last two decades collide in this harrowing 6-issue adventure of epic proportions! Co-writers Steve Niles (writer and co-creator of 30 Days of Night) and rockstar-turned-writer Adam Jones (the band Tool) team with the amazing, moody artistry of industry legend Tom Mandrake (THE SPECTRE, BATMAN) to unleash the ultimate comic culture crossover! When evidence of a possible cannibal killer in Wainright, Alaska, draws the attention of the FBI, Agents Mulder and Scully draw the less-than-glamorous assignment, but all is not as it seems once the agents are on the ground. Not only has the long seasonal darkness begun to fall, but there's something unnatural about a few of the locals, and what does a chilling, mysterious black ship have to do with the murders?
X-Force: Sex and Violence #1 (OF 3) – Just when you thought it was over, we pull you back in-it's the X-Force story everyone's been talking about, finally delivered! Wolverine and Domino have always had a special relationship, but everything goes upside down when the Assassins Guild puts out a hit on our gun wielding bombshell. Why do they want her dead? And more importantly, how many people have to die before Wolverine and Domino can spend some quality time together? Get ready for the sexiest blood-soaked ride Craig Kyle and Chris Yost have ever delivered as they join forces with international superstar Gabriele Dell'otto to offer up their final X-Force story!
