BLOOD HUNT #1 – Jed McKay presents 2024’s big and bloody Marvel event! Join the AVENGERS, BLADE, BLOODLINE, SPIDER-MAN, HUNTER’S MOON, TIGRA, DOCTOR STRANGE and CLEA as the dance of death begins; the skies have go dark,  and the children of the night – vampires – have risen together from the dark and hidden places of the world to drown the Marvel Universe in blood. It’s Earth’s final night – can the heroes of this doomed world stem the tide of dread that is to come?

BLOOD HUNT RED BAND #1  THERE WILL BE (MORE) BLOOD! Expanded and unexpurgated – and polybagged for your protection – the Red Band Edition of Blood Hunt #1 contains additional pages of unexpurgated material that are too explicit for the regular edition!

Please note the Red Band version will be customer order only; we will not be stocking this on the shelves in single issues, so if you want it, please add it to your pull list today.

BLOOD BROTHERS MOTHER #1 – In the tradition of The Searchers, The Outlaw Josey Wales, and Blood Meridian comes a brutal new western series from Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso – the Eisner award-winning team behind the seminal Vertigo crime classic 100 BULLETS and Image Comics MOONSHINE! In the old American West, three children set off across the wild Texas frontier to rescue their kidnapped mother from the ruthless outlaws who gunned down their preacher father. They’ll encounter deadly animals hungry for blood, merciless bounty hunters and the harsh elements of the unforgiving landscape, plus so much more… all in their relentless quest to rescue their family. Together, the kids will learn the terrible cost of revenge and how it stains a soul.

UNCANNY VALLEY #1 (OF 6) – Fan-favourite writer Tony Fleecs (Stray Dogs, Local Man) and acclaimed artist Dave Wachter (Punisher, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) introduce Oliver – a seemingly typical 12 year old boy… except for some unexplainable powers that manifest with a surreal and cartoonish nature! He can do things other boys can’t, to the point of landing him in some trouble. Baffled by his abilities – and followed by a murder of peculiar crows – the mystery behind Oliver’s family history finally unfolds! Find out what makes Oliver special and strange as he searches for his place in the world.

HERCULES #1 – The world’s favourite demigod-turned-mortal is back, and he’s about to embark on the biggest adventure since The Odyssey! When Aphrodite grants an artist’s wish to bring his sculpture to life, Herc gets the call to clean things up when the newly conscious artwork proves to be more bone-crushingly lively than expected! Learning that the rogue statue is just misunderstood – and a little rambunctious (much like himself as a youth) – Hercules returns to Aphrodite – only to find her temple empty and abandoned. Is the goddess of love just pouting, or is something more sinister afoot? If you know anything about classic Greek mythology, you know it’s going to be the latter!

GIANT-SIZE HULK #1 (ONE-SHOT) – THE ONLY WAY TO CONTAIN THE HULK… IS IN A GIANT-SIZE STORY! Riding the rails is no walk in the park – especially for the INCREDIBLE HULK! And particularly when something – no, someONE – has been stolen from him by a gruesome new threat with evil machinations in mind. Clear the tracks – the HULK is coming through!!! PLUS: Includes a reprinting of INCREDIBLE HULK #372 by Peter David and Dale Keown, featuring high-speed action and heartrending drama in a Hulk tale for the ages!

ROXXON PRESENTS THOR #1 – From the pages of IMMORTAL THOR – the ROXXON AGE OF COMIXX BEGINS! In his secret identity as A.I. spokesguru CHAD HAMMER, the son of Odin knows Mama Gaea is a TOP PRIORITY for heroes AND for business! But when a group of insane environmental activists take “saving the Earth” TOO FAR, it’s time to show them the wisdom on BOTH sides – AS THOR! But WHICH God of Evil is prompting the kids to rebel? Could it be… LOKI, GOD OF EVIL??? Featuring an all-star cast of heroes! MINOTAUR! EXECUTIONER! ENCHANTRESS! And the THOR-TRUCK! This is the story of THE ROXXIN’ THOR… and it’s a VITAL part of the “ABSOLUTE ABSOLUTION” MEGA-EVENT!

RAT CITY #1 – The EXTRA-LENGTH first issue of RAT CITY has finally arrived. Peter Cairn is an ex-soldier, an amputee, and a Hellspawn in a post-war future. But Peter’s not dead like Al. Peter got his Spawn powers from the nanites in his prosthetic legs-nanites that were affected when Al Simmons initiated his necroplasmic detonation in the present. Al had no clue that the effects would ripple across not just space, and but time as well.

FANTAGRAPHICS UNDERGROUND MYTHOLOGIES & APOCRYPHA #1 – Acclaimed cartoonist Tim Lane debuts a new, ongoing series exploring the good, the bad, and the ugly of 20th century masculinity through a head spinning blend of fact and fiction featuring Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Walter Cronkite, and others – culminating in a quick-draw shootout on Mars between Steve McQueen, Johnny Cash, and Sammy Davis Jr. This all-new series showcases Lane’s meticulous and jaw-dropping artistry – a level of detail echoing illustrative legends like Frank Frazetta, Alex Raymond, and Dave Stevens.
