THUNDERCATS #1 – Fleeing through space to escape their dying home world, the ThunderCats are attacked by their mortal enemies, the Mutants of Plun-Darr and forced down on a  strange planet called Third Earth. The surviving ThunderCats – led by an inexperienced Lion-O – now strive to rebuild their society in harmony with the natives of this new world. But the Mutants have pursued them, forging an alliance with a devil-priest called Mumm-Ra the Ever-Living! An exciting new version of the classic Eighties cartoon sensation, ThunderCats from Declan Shalvey and Drew Moss! 

WHAT IF VENOM #1 – Years ago, in a fateful church tower, the Venom symbiote was spurned by Spider-Man and found a new willing host in Eddie Brock! Now rising stars Jeremy Holt (Marvel’s Voices: Spider-Verse) and Jesus Hervás (Marvel: Unleashed) explore Marvel’s most sinister symbiote’s earliest days bonded to hosts with an entirely different rage and temper!

MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS THE RETURN #1 (OF 4) – The original Pink Ranger herself, actress, screenwriter, and director Amy Jo Johnson – with rising star co-writer Matt Hotson (Titans) and renowned artist Nico Leon (Spider-Man, Catwoman) – transport fans to an alternate universe, where the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers finally defeated Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd, but at a terrible cost, and in the wake of this tragedy, the team went their separate ways. 

Now, some 22 years later, the team reunite to mourn the losses of beloved friends. And Zack and Billy have some unexpected information to share – Jason had been operating as a lone vigilante, and has recently disappeared. Can the remaining Rangers find him, especially with a mysterious figure in pursuit?

SPIDER-PUNK ARMS RACE #1 – ENCORE! Cody Ziglar (Miles Morales: Spider-Man) and Justin Mason (Spider-Man 2099: Dark Genesis) reunite to bring the Brooklyn boy back because you wanted more! In this world without Norman Osborn, Hobie Brown and team are trying to rebuild society, but Justin Hammer and Doctor Otto Octavius have other plans… including unleashing SPIDER-SLAYING SENTINELS! Grab your boots, your instruments, your amps and LET’S GO! Spider-Punk Reigns!

NIGHT THRASHER #1 – It’s time to thrash the night! The death of a loved one draws Dwayne Taylor back to New York City, though his days as Night Thrasher are long over. But Dwayne finds the past difficult to outrun when Silhouette, his ex-teammate from the New Warriors, seeks his help against a new criminal called The O.G. And the mystery of the O.G.’s true identity and what’s to come will change Night Thrasher’s legacy forever! Don’t miss this bold new direction for a cult classic character who is leaving the ’90s behind him!

ROMAN RITUAL #1 – A murder of a Cardinal is shaking the Vatican. But this murder is so cruel and vicious that it goes far beyond any crime or conspiracy that has ever taken place in the Vatican – and that is saying something! Self-exiled priest John Brennan is recalled to Rome as the Church’s most daring exorcist. His mission is to confront the evil spreading within the walls of the Vatican itself.

ONE HAND #1 (OF 5) – Neo Novena detective Ari Nasser is about to retire with an enviable record, until a brutal murder occurs, bearing all the hallmarks of the “One Hand Killer”… which should be impossible, since Ari already put him away not once, but twice in the years before. What follows is a deadly cat-and-mouse game as Ari pursues his quarry down the rain-soaked streets of Neo Novena. Ari will stop at nothing to unravel the secrets and ciphers of this case, but each revelation only leads further into the dark heart of his future-metropolis and Ari’s own beleaguered soul. Grippingly written by award-winning writer Ram V with hauntingly atmospheric art and covers by Laurence Campbell and Lee Loughridge, One Hand is a miniseries that will keep you guessing until the very end.

CEMETERY KIDS DON’T DIE #1 – The 21st century sucks hard, but it’s made somewhat tolerable by the latest and greatest media innovations. Enter the Dreamwave: the first gaming console played entirely while you sleep. The obsession of millions around the globe, it’s also the one point of solace for four friends known as the “Cemetery Kids,” who spend their nights roaming the endless maps of the most brutal horror game ever created as they seek to dethrone the “King of Sleep” – the Dreamwave’s biggest, baddest, and most mysterious boss. 

Which was fun… until one of them doesn’t wake up and finds their consciousness locked inside a horror game that is anything but imaginary. Now, the three remaining Cemetery Kids must navigate a forbidden landscape to rescue their friend – and pray that the secret lurking at its centre doesn’t follow them home. 

At the farthest edge of human perception – where science fiction and horror collide – experience 2024’s most exhilarating, terrifying adventure, downloading from critically acclaimed writer Zac Thompson (Hunt for the Skinwalker, The Dregs) and blockbuster artist Daniel Irizarri (XINO, Judge Dredd)!
