If you want to choose a specific cover, make sure to let us know in your email! Otherwise you will receive whichever cover we order (typically the Main Cover, or Cover A).

WHAT IF…? DONALD DUCK BECAME WOLVERINE #1 – This year marks the 90th anniversary of Donald Duck as well as the 50th anniversary of Wolverine, and in July, fans will be able to see both their sagas collide in a special comic book one-shot, MARVEL & DISNEY: WHAT IF…? DONALD DUCK BECAME WOLVERINE #1! Crafted by two acclaimed Disney comic creators, writer Luca Barbieri and artist Giada Perissinotto, this is the latest comic book collaboration between Marvel and Disney hot on the heels of the blockbuster hit UNCLE SCROOGE AND THE INFINITY DIME #1 one-shot that hit stands earlier this month. 

This wild adventure is inspired by one of Wolverine’s most memorable story arcs, Old Man Logan! Travel to the near future where chaos rules as Pete-Skull transforms Duckburg into a super-hero-less wasteland. Only Old Donald Duck can turn the tide, but he’s given up his battling days and prefers naps and his grandma’s apple pie over fighting villains. When Mickey-Hawkeye comes knocking at the door with Goofy-Hulk at his side, Donald-Wolverine has to make a choice! Will a trip down memory lane change his mind to save the world? Or will the lure of the backyard hammock and a long nap keep him from popping his claws one last time? In addition, the saga will revisit some of the greatest moments in Donald-Wolverine’s history including his time spent with Weapon X and the Uncanny X-Men!

UNCLE SCROOGE INFINITY DIME #1 2ND PTG MIRKA ANDOLFO VAR– A second printing of this wonderful one-shot featuring a gorgeous new cover from Mirka Andolfo!

HELLO DARKNESS #1 – You wait months for a compelling new horror anthology comic, and two come along in the same week! First up is Hello Darkness from Boom! Studios! With a spine-tingling lineup of industry legends including Garth Ennis, Becky Cloonan, James Tynion IV, Werther Dell’Edera, Brian Azzarello, Vanesa R. Del Rey, John Arcudi, Ryan Sook, and more, everything from primal fears to modern political horrors will be awakened, in the classic style of Creepy and Eerie and the contemporary chills of Black Mirror. In addition, a deadly new Something is Killing the Children story unfolds in the first six issues, along with a bone-rattling new serialized tale by Garth Ennis and Becky Cloonan for the first seven!

EC EPITAPHS FROM THE ABYSS #1 (OF 5)– The immortal EC COMICS returns… with its first ALL-NEW series in nearly 70 years! Witness shocking tales of torment and tension, wrenched from the grave by the vile intentions of acclaimed writers Brian Azzarello (Batman: Damned, 100 Bullets), Chris Condon (That Texas Blood, Night People), J. Holtham (FX’s The Handmaid’s Tale), and Stephanie Phillips (Harley Quinn, Grim) and realised into bloody reality by “all-slaughter” artists Jorge Fornes (Rorschach, Danger Street), Phil Hester (Family Tree), Peter Krause (Irredeemable), and more! What the Comics Code Authority couldn’t kill has only made it stronger… the most notorious name in terror is back with avengeance!

ABSOLUTE POWER ORIGINS #1 (OF 3) – Amanda Waller: Year One! Academy Award-winning writer John Ridley and fan-favourite artist Alitha Martinez explore the history of Waller; how one woman lost everything she held dear… powerless beneath the forces of senseless acts of chaos. The path of vengeance would lead her to form the Trinity Of Evil and launch a catastrophic attack on Earth’s metahumans, rendered both heroes and villains as powerless as she once felt. The perfect companion to the Absolute Power event!

LEGO NINJAGO SHATTERSPIN #1 (OF 5) – Delve into the secret history of Garmadon with familiar faces and shocking first appearances! As the world of Ninjago faces a threat unlike any before, the young champion Garmadon sets off on a quest to discover the truth behind the legend of The Forbidden Five and a secret power that could turn the tide of the Serpentine War! But can Garmadon resist the temptation in front of him to save Ninjago, or will he be consumed by the power he’s so close to grasping? 

BLACK WIDOW VENOMOUS #1 – Natasha Romanoff, the infamous spy known as the Black Widow, didn’t go looking to bond with an alien symbiote. But a good spy works with all the tools available to her, and when one of the most powerful and versatile weapons in the universe lands in your lap…you take it. Now she just needs to figure out how to work with a weapon with its own drives and desires. Redefining Widow’s relationship with her symbiote, and setting the stage for her appearance in Venom War!

Something wicked crawled out screaming. Edith “Eddie” Miller has no grand plans or great prospects. She spends her days sleeping in and her nights working shifts at a gas station. But when her younger sister fails to come home, Eddie unearths a web of missing girls and rotting bodies. The police prove useless, so Eddie teams up with her best friend, Rainer, in a desperate hunt to find her sister. The only thing is – Eddie believes her best friend might be the Devil himself.

SPAWN KILLS EVERY SPAWN #1 (OF 5) – When the character baby of ‘Spawny’ attends Spawn-Con, a convention filled with various Spawns from across the Spawn Universe, he is devastated to discover that he’s not even close to being the most popular Hellspawn. Instead, he’s the least liked among that group. To battle his identity crisis, Spawny decides to take drastic action: KILL THEM ALL! What follows is a darkly comedic, action-packed adventure that explores the insanity of a convention full of Hellspawn, and the lengths one very sensitive Spawn will go to in his quest to gain fame and recognition. Written by John Layman (Chew) and illustrated by Rob “Sketchcraft” Duenas, with colours by Robert Nugent, this bold story brings a hilarious-yet-deadly twist to the world of Spawn.
