REMOTE SPACE #1 (OF 4) – The year 2450. The Earth is dying. Humanity diverged along two different evolutionary paths. One used cybernetic augmentation to adapt to space travel. The humans left behind used genetic manipulation to adapt to the planet’s deteriorating climate. For Earth to survive, civilizations must collide!

BATMAN GOTHAM BY GASLIGHT KRYPTONIAN AGE #1 (OF 12) – A new era of ELSEWORLDS kicks off with the return of its crown jewel, the mysterious and gothic world of Gotham By Gaslight, as originated by Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola! A mysterious meteor crashes onto the wide-open plains of the Midwest, unleashing a chain of events that pits this steampunk Batman against the twin threats of the Catwoman and a mysterious international assassin, but also heralds the emergence of superhuman beings beyond comprehension! This sequel series expands the 19th-century DC Universe beyond the confines of Gotham City, showcasing bold new visions of once-familiar heroes… Do not miss it!

LAWFUL #1 (OF 8) – Imperfection breeds monstrous consequences in this urban fantasy adventure with deep social commentary from renowned and award-winning writer Greg Pak (Mech Cadets, Darth Vader, Planet Hulk) and acclaimed artist Diego Galindo (Stranger Things: The Voyage). Behind the walls of strangely familiar city, two small children with a sense of adventure get a grim reminder of reality. Every mistake one makes in this world of magic and modernity causesthem to transform bit by bit into monsters, and in the eyes of society, there’s no distinction between the rules and what’s right!

DC PRIDE UNCOVERED #1 (ONE SHOT) – Some ofDC’s most iconic LGBTQIA+ artists have put the party in Pride with their fabulous array of variant covers spotlighting LGBTQIA+ characters across the DCU year after year! This art book one-shot collects a robust selection of fan favourites in one place for the very first time! Don’t miss out on a gallery of gorgeous art as imaginative and colourful as the characters themselves.

VENOMVERSE REBORN #1 – THE DARKEST WEB IS RESPUN! Dive back into the darkness as the Venomverse is reborn, with stories of symbiotes from all across the Multiverse! First, Benjamin Percy and Brian Level spin a tale of the murder of the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes by one of their own… but who? Then Christos Gage drags Venom from Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 across the Venomverse to take on Knull! And all the while, Al Ewing and Danilo S. Beyruth set the stage for the tales spinning out of the ongoing VENOM series!

We will automatically pull the above issue for Reservation Service customers with VENOMVERSE on their pull list. To opt-out, please email us ASAP.

ANANSI BOYS I #1 – #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman joins forces with Eisner nominated Adorawriter Marc Bernardin and Thief of Thieves co-creator Shawn Martinbrough to adapt Gaiman’s Locus and British Fantasy Award-winning novel as a comic book series for the first time – and soon to be a television show on Amazon Prime!

“Fat” Charlie Nancy leads a boring life as a boring Londoner, until he discovers two things: That his recently deceased father was, in fact, Anansi the Spider, the trickster god of African folklore, and that he has a twin brother he’s never met. Which kicks off a reality-spanning odyssey of sibling rivalry, jealous deities, and one poor soul who’ll realize what it means to be a god.

BATMAN DETECTIVE COMICS (2022) VOL 01 GOTHAM NOCTURNE OVERTURE TP and BATMAN DETECTIVE COMICS (2022) VOL 02 GOTHAM NOCTURNE ACT I TP – Collecting the opening chapters of Ram V’s run on Detective Comics with a team of all-star artists!

Gotham becomes ever more perilous for Batman! First, Batman is haunted by a pervasive creeping sense of dread – of his own inner demons and a looming mortality. Meanwhile, real demons roam the shadows as an ancient melody haunts the Gotham night. Who is human, who is demon, and who is to tell? As Batman investigates the songs and the demons of Gotham, he is forced to confront the oldest question: Has there been a demon within him all along…and if so, what does it want…and why hasn’t it taken over yet? Collects Detective Comics #1062-1065.

Then Two-Face and Mr. Freeze are rallied by sinister forces to defeat the Dark Detective. Meanwhile, the young Orgham heir, Arzen, meets Bruce Wayne for the first time, and Bruce sees potential in the boy. Dualism takes centre stage, and not only is nothing as it seems, but it’s always, always worse. Collects Detective Comics #1066-1070 and the Detective Comics 2022 Annual.

RIFTERS #1 – Please, Saran-Wrap your ass, because you’re about to projectile-shit yourself right into the wild world of Rifters, where Time Cop collides with Law & Order, filtered through the Stupid McSmartsalot-Einstein lens of Mr. Show. Fenton and Geller are a couple of part-time Wisenheimers, full-time vice time-cops who suck at rule-following but excel at busting time-travel crimes. Unfortunately, their daily grind involves tedious police work-like chasing down douchebag influencers hellbent on live-streaming illegal transtemporal trips to 1920s Chicago to steal primo bootleg hooch. However, in a twist of fate, our heroes find themselves thrust into the heart of an inter-time serial homicide mystery, but not before things change, forcing our pair into the crosshairs of potentially lethal consequences. The stakes are high, time is of the essence, and Fenton and Geller are about to discover that playing with the time-stream isn’t all flappers and jazz hands. Get ready for a high-octane, double-illegal adventure where the only sure thing is that Rifters is rewriting the rulebook on time-travel tales!

Please note the title above 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.

Though they restored peace to the cosmos by killing Garmantuous, there’s no rest for the Bounty Hunter when a brutal new threat to Humans shoots its way onto the scene. Armed with plucky & determined Harper – and the rest of the Gatlian gang – the series will take them on an explosive, twisting adventure across the cosmos.

A story of GUTS, GORE, REDEMPTION, and lost love, this brand-new miniseries will be a rollercoaster romp in the world of the eponymous video game.

GALAXY OF MADNESS #1 (OF 10) – In the far-flung thrilling future of the 41st Century, and on the other side of the galaxy, a swashbuckling space archaeologist, Vigil Virgo, is on the cusp of learning a universe-shattering secret in this four-colour fantasy! But she’ll have to dive into the abyss, where no human was ever meant to go, to do it. The question is what happens when she emerges from the other side.
