WESLEY DODDS THE SANDMAN #1 (OF 6) – The Dawn of DC’s New Golden Age series of comics starts here! Spinning out of JSA and Stargirl: The Lost Children, three classic JSA heroes are returning with their own titles, starting with the original Sandman! After years of testing and experimentation, Wesley Dodds perfected his sleep gas as the optimal weapon to fight crime without causing undue harm. But when his journal detailing all his failed and far more deadly formulas is stolen, the Sandman must hunt down the thief and find out who is pulling the strings from the shadows,before the contents of the journal are released!

CANARY #1 – Set in the final days of the Gold Rush, Canary mixes real history with modern horror. In 1891, a company in Colorado strikes uranium just before the mine collapses in on itself. Legends soon spring up about the mine being cursed or haunted. Years later, as the frontier becomes settled and more civilised, new legends arise. Stories of random killings and people going mad, murdering their friends without cause. It is one such killing that summons Marshal Azrael Holt. What he, and a brilliant geologist discover, will defy everything they know. From Scott Snyder and Dan Panosian!

A HAUNTED GIRL #1 (OF 4) – Meet Cleo, a 16-year-old adopted Japanese-American whose anxiety and depression drove her to suicidal ideation. Now she’s fresh out of the hospital and trying unsuccessfully to reintegrate back into her old life. What she doesn’t know is that her struggles are about to intensify as she finds herself encountering an increasingly terrifying succession of ghosts. Is she losing her grip on reality… or is the explanation much, much worse?

A HAUNTING ON MARS #1 – Mars is a wasteland: a defunct colony, founded by a deceased billionaire, holding darkness and secrets within. Secrets which Echo Team have been sent to uncover. But they’ve crashed far from the LZ and their sanity is already unraveling!

SPIDER-BOY #1 – After the events of The End Of The Spider-Verse, Spider-Boy’s secret history as Spider-Man’s sidekick was nearly forgotten forever.

DESTINY GATE #1 (OF 4) – A blend of Inception and Amnesia: The Dark Descent, in an action-packed anthology series where the “wrong” decision can lead you to a crossroads on the other side of the Destiny Gate. Do you fight for a chance to survive and to start anew, or do you succumb to your inner demons and end it all for you and, worse, yours? In this opening tale, we meet Mitchell Slate at the height of the Great Depression. Down on his luck and heading home to a disappointed and desperate family, Mitchell’s train ride veers off the rails and transforms into a macabre and darkly fantastical journey inspired by films like Dark City and Jacob’s Ladder that journeys deep into his own fragile soul.

DOCTOR WHO ONCE UPON A TIMELORD GN – An epic one-shot from Eisner award-winner (and Doctor Whosuper-fan!) Dan Slott that sees Martha Jones captured by the Insatiable Pyromeths!

FRANK FRAZETTA DEATH DEALER 2099 #1 (OF 4) – The legend of Frank Frazetta’s Death Dealer continues… in 2099! Sword and sorcery meet cybernetics and supercomputers!! It’s the next chapter in the saga of the cursed horned helmet, bestowed upon a new warrior in a dark, unforgiving future!

CRYPT OF SHADOWS #1 – This October, take another frightening journey through the shadows of the Marvel Universe as the hit one-shot returns for another year of spooky tales. The crypt will be reopened and the creatures, monsters, and ghouls of the Marvel Universe will emerge in this collection of terrifying and easily accessible stories that will haunt new fans and longtime readers alike this Halloween! 

NIGHTS #1 – A new vision of urban gothic adventure starts here! Supernatural creatures exist among the common folk, and America is comprised of just 31 states.

DRIVE LIKE HELL #1 – Bobby Ray almost had it made.
