In Japan, urban legends have sprung to life and brought some unusual new powers with them…

WEAPON X-MEN #1 – In Original X-Men, the Phoenix recruited the young X-Men to fix a time-displaced disaster.

SILVER VESSELS OGN – A group of friends go on a mission in the Florida Keys to uncover a lost treasure and end up getting more than they bargained for! Obsessed after a history lesson at school, Joshua enlists his two best friends tospend the summer hunting for the treasure of Our Lady of Atocha, a Spanish treasure galleon that sank in a hurricane off the Keys in 1622.

THE BAT-MAN FIRST KNIGHT #1 (OF 3) – Legendary writer Dan Jurgens and superstar artist Mike Perkins return to the earliest days of the Dark Knight, retelling one of his most infamous cases through an acutely modern lens, depicting a world paralysed by anxiety with a desperate populace crying out for release! It’s 1939 and the world is still reeling from the horrors of the First World War, teetering on the brink of an even more gruesome conflict, with fascism on the march and gathering strength in America’s darkest corners. Against this backdrop, a series of violent murders has begun in Gotham and all of the evidence in the murder investigation defies logic: the perpetrators are all men who died in the electric chair. Enter the mysterious new vigilante known as The Bat-Man to investigate these sickening anomalies!

WASHED IN THE BLOOD #1 (OF 3) – A tale inspired by Mad MaxHellraiserFallout and the filmography of David Cronenberg! What if you were called upon by the WORST god of all time? In a post-apocalyptic frozen wasteland, a young cult survivor hears the voice of the self-proclaimed god of guns.

DAWNRUNNER #1 – An all-ages sci-fi epic from rising stars Ram V and Evan Cagle! A century ago the Tetza emerged from a portal opened over Central America and changed our world forever. Humanity’s continued survival relies on gladiatorial combat, making great mechs called Iron Kings to battle the Tetza.

MISFORTUNE’S EYES #1 (OF 4) – A teen girl discovers she can see human auras. Embarking on a journey to find what her future may hold, she uncovers a hidden Psychic Town.

ALIENS WHAT IF #1 – Weyland-Yutani junior executive Carter Burke got his just desserts in Aliens, but what if he had actually survived the traumatic events on Hadley’s Hope? The actor behind the beloved villain, Paul Reiser, joins his son Leon and a star-studded team of writers and producers Adam F. Goldberg, Brian Volk-Weiss and Hans Rodionoff for a journey back to the terraforming colony to craft Burke’s twisted escape.

STAR TREK SONS OF STAR TREK #1 – A new four-part miniseries spinning out of IDW’s Eisner-nominated Star Trek series and the fan favourite Star Trek: Defiant series!

TABLE TITANS CLUB HC GN – Growing pains, game-play adventure, and 20-sided dice abound in this new graphic novel series about a middle school Dungeon & Dragons club. Set in the same universe as the Eisner Award-winning webcomic PvP, Scott Kurtz’s artwork blends zany, fantastical visuals with slice-of-life humour. Valeria Winters has an easier time finding trouble than making friends. A fantasy-obsessed nerd with the legendary confidence – and temper – of a Valkyrie, Val promises her mom that things will be different at her new school. “No more fighting!” Day one she meets the Table Titans right away – Alan, Andrew, and Darius, who run the school’s tabletop gaming club. Finally, her own adventuring party! A place where she belongs! So when the future of the club is threatened, Val makes it her personal quest to save them. Can Val roll a natural 20 to keep her new friends together?

NOTHING SPECIAL VOL 01 THROUGH ELDER WOODS GN – In the grand scheme of the worlds at large, Callie thinks she’s nothing special. Sure, she’s friends with the ghost of a radish and her dad owns a magical antique shop – but she’s spent her life in the human world. Her dad won’t let her join him on his collection trips in the magical realm “for her own protection”, so she’s only caught glimpses of that world through the gates of the town where her father’s store is. On her seventeenth birthday, Callie goes home with her friend Declan to find her home in disarray and her dad missing. Signs of a struggle point to the portal to the magical realm and when there are signs, you follow them. Now it’s up to Callie, Declan, and Radish to band together and bring him home. As they face creatures good and bad, and all sorts of adventure, Callie and Declan may just find out that they are both special in their own ways after all.

MEDEA GN – Who was Medea, really? Beyond the hearsay, exaggerations, and distortions inflicted by time, this is Medea’s story in her own voice, from the luxuriant gardens of her childhood in Colchis to the mysterious island from which she gives her final confession. The legendary sorceress from Greek myth has been cast as many things-a caring mother and a passionate lover who was thwarted by her desires; an independent woman vilified for refusing the tyranny of men; a barbarian who sowed confusion in the regimented world of the Greeks; a formidable witch, mistress of occult forces. Simply put, she was precisely what some would call a monster. And yet, there is so much more to Medea… This provocative tale is created by writer Blandine Le Callet and artist Nancy Peña, with an English translation by Montana Kane.

Now he must try to survive both the ongoing war and the animalistic nature of his fellow soldiers.
