Action Comics #900 – Superman returns to ACTION COMICS just in time for the title's historic 900th issue, which clocks in at 96 pages! Writer Paul Cornell leads off with a 51-page story that concludes the "Black Ring" story and begins the next act of the "Reign of Doomsday" epic. With art by Pete Woods and Jesus Merino, this story welcomes The Man of Steel back to the pages of ACTION, and also features vignettes illustrated by Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund, Rags Morales, Ardian Syaf, Jamal Igle and Jon Sibal, Gary Frank and more. The issue also includes bonus short stories by the writer/artist teams of Damon Lindelof and Ryan Sook; Paul Dini, R.B. Silva and Rob Lean; David Goyer and Miguel Sepulveda; and Geoff Johns and Gary Frank. Plus, Richard Donner and Derek Hoffman write a story in movie-script form, with storyboard-style art by Matt Camp! And Brian Stelfreeze contributes a two-page spread depicting Superman in an homage to so many of the great artists who have drawn The Man of Steel through the decades.

Danger Girl/Army of Darkness #1 – Abbey Chase, the world's most daring adventuress, returns to action as she aims to recover a dark and mysterious piece of ancient history. When Abbey learns that the elusive Book of the Dead has resurfaced and fallen into nefarious hands, she and the Danger Girls embark on a mission to track down the powerful tome. But when their journey leads them to cross paths with another seeking the book - a man with a personal vendetta and a literal hand in the book's sordid history - they find themselves spiraling through the most outrageous and sure-to-be-talked-about cross-over event of the year!

Mighty Thor #1 – It's a shining, golden, new age for the Thunder God and Matt Fraction and Olivier Coipel are back to lead the charge! Thor and Sif dive deep into the heart of the fractured World Tree to reclaim an artifact from beyond time and space, an artifact that attracts the attention of the Silver Surfer. And when a herald such as he arrives on Earth, the arrival of his master is certain to follow. Prepare for the return of the World Eater - prepare for the return of Galactus! Fans can't miss an all new behind the scenes look at the highly anticipated major motion picture with a sneak peek at some of the art!

Beginning an all-new series that takes place before the original 1968 Planet of the Apes movie in the continuity of the first five films! Ape society has reached a new golden age. But there are ripples of dissent in both the ape and human ranks. Tensions will rise and soon all will be caught in chaos! And amidst all this uncertainty, what is the fate of The Lawgiver?

Strange Case of Mr. Hyde #1 (OF 4) – Sometimes good police work just isn't enough, as Inspector Thomas Adye of Scotland Yard finds out when he's assigned to the Jack the Ripper case. He'll need the guidance of imprisoned madman and amoral libertine, Dr. Henry Jekyll, whose mind-splitting serum Jack might be using to commit his bloody murders. Written by Cole Haddon and illustrated by M.S. Corley, part 1 of Hyde sets in motion events that will pit London's two greatest monsters against one another. Will Adye-and his soul-survive intact? This is thrilling Victorian horror written by exciting newcomer Cole Haddon, weaving together the Jack the Ripper legend with the elements of the classic tale of Jekyll and Hyde.

Thor: Asgard’s Avenger #1 – Verily! The ideal companion for the THOR motion picture! Begin quenching thy curiosity of all things Asgardian with this assemblage of all-new Thor-related profiles in the time-honored OHOTMU manner! Learn of foul rogues such as Malekith, Mangog and the fiery Surtur; lovely visions like Jane Foster, Kelda and Karnilla; mystical items including the Norn Stones and the Oversword; and, of course, heroes worthy of song: the new Thunderstrike, Vidar, Volstagg and an update on the noble Thor himself! Plus: the Nine Worlds of Asgard, an Appendix of its citizenry and more! Featuring new art by Gus Vazquez! Truly, a tome worthy of the gods! Miss it not!

Tomb of Dracula Presents: Throne of Blood #1 – Long ago, the seeds of a vampire cataclysm were planted in the Marvel Universe. One lone vampire rose above the rest and operated in the shadows as the world around him changed. Prepare for a clash of steel, blood, and the undead in Throne of Blood, as Marvel changes the way you see vampires...and shows you the meaning of Fear Itself.
