MINISERIES PREMIERE


Cleo, an adopted 16-year-old Japanese-American whose depression drove her to near-suicide, is trying unsuccessfully to reintegrate back into her old life.


But her struggles are just beginning as she encounters an increasingly terrifying succession of ghosts.

VISIONARY CREATOR CHRISTIAN WARD UNLEASHES A COSMIC-HORROR EPIC, FEATURING THE COURT OF OWLS!


Buried deep beneath Gotham City there exists another Gotham. This Gotham Below is a living nightmare, populated by twisted mirrors of our Gotham's denizens, fuelled by the fear and hatred flowing down from above.


For decades, the doorway between the cities has been sealed and heavily guarded by the Court of Owls. But now the door swings wide, and the twisted version of the Dark Knight has escaped...


...to trap and train a Robin of his own.


Batman must form an uneasy alliance with the Court and its deadly allies to stop him--and to hold back the wave of twisted super-villains, nightmarish versions of his own nemeses, each one worse than the last, that's spilling into his streets! Visionary writer-artist Christian Ward unleashes his cosmic-horror take on Batman's world, in a tribute to disturbing Dark Knight classics like Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Gothic! You'll never look at Batman's villains the same way again...


...you simply won't have the stomach for it!

But when Sentries launch an attack on civilians and start stealing children, Earth's Mightiest Hero must intervene!


Half Kree, half human and all warrior, Carol Danvers swoops in for an action-packed special just in time for The Marvels on the silver screen!

Rated T+











MINISERIES PREMIERE!


Writer RYAN CADY (HAUNT YOU TO THE END, Batman) and artist CHRISTIAN DiBARI (REVOLVERS, MAGDALENA: REFORMATION) present Life, for the most part, is the product of the decisions you make.


For some, a 'wrong' decision or two (or more) leads to a crossroads on the other side of the Destiny Gate:


Do you fight for a chance to survive and to start anew, or do you succumb to your inner demons and end it all for you and, worse, yours?


In this opening tale, we meet Mitchell Slate at the height of the Great Depression. Down on his luck and heading home to a disappointed and desperate family, Mitchell's train ride veers off the rails and transforms into a macabre and darkly fantastical journey into his own fragile soul.




SERIES PREMIERE!


RUBEN KWAN is a 50-year-old firefighter who's been afraid of fire his whole life. Instead of running into burning buildings, he pushes papers, living in the shadow of his father-who died a hero on the job.


After 25 years in the LAFD, he's firmly in the middle of an unremarkable life until his new wife gets pregnant and a random act of courage reveals that Ruben is FIREPROOF!


New York Times-bestselling writer BRIAN BUCCELLATO (NO/ONE, The Flash, Chicken Devil) teams up with star artist STEFANO SIMEONE (THE LAST DAYS OF BLACK HAMMER, RADIANT BLACK) to tell the totally relatable (sometimes cringey) story of a middle-aged dad who's about to find out that his new powers have major strings attached.





SERIES PREMIERE A NEW ONGOING SERIES PREMIERE FROM WYATT KENNEDY (BOLERO) & NEWCOMER LUIGI FORMISANO!


Supernatural creatures exist among the common folk, and America is comprised of just 31 states.


It's 2003, and Vince Okonma has lost his parents and moved in with his secret mercenary cousin and his video game-making roommate when he befriends 'the greatest vampire who's ever lived.' And that's just the first 20 pages.


Welcome to Florida...


A new vision of urban gothic adventure starts here! Youth is wasted on the young...





Fans of legendary swordsman and wanderer Usagi Yojimbo have enjoyed countless tales told of his exciting adventures-tales told over hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years.


Someone in the far future enjoys another classic adventure featuring the rabbit ronin, and Stan Sakai's Space Usagi universe returns with a unique, new story.













SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN WEB-SLINGS AGAIN!


The spider-team that redefined the AMAZING SPIDER-MAN returns to celebrate the TENTH ANNIVERSARY of the most monumental and shocking Spidey story in a generation!


DAN SLOTT. RYAN STEGMAN. MARK BAGLEY. GIUSEPPE CAMUNCOLI. HUMBERTO RAMOS.


And of course, Peter Parker & Doc Ock. Together again for a Spider-Man story SUPERIOR to all others!


Rated T










As Halloween approaches, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles must face their fears when a powerful and mysterious being challenges them to prove their mettle in a nightmarish test of bravery.


Meanwhile, Shredder has an otherworldly encounter of his own when he summons an ancient spirit to gain a greater understanding of the powerful weapon he seeks to reforge only to discover that some forces are beyond even his control!


Don't miss this double-sized, spooky special of Saturday Morning Adventures!









THE GOLDEN AGE SANDMAN RETURNS IN A NEW NOIR MYSTERY!


No one escapes the Sandman's dark dreams, not even Wesley Dodds himself.


After years of testing and experimentation, Wesley perfected his sleep gas as the optimal weapon to fight crime without causing undue harm.


But when his journal detailing all his failed and far more deadly formulas is stolen, the Sandman must hunt down the thief and the people in the shadows pulling the strings before the contents of the journal are released!
