THE PRISM #1 – Creator Matteo De Longis (Avengers: The Initiative, Sky Doll Space Ship) presents your new favourite new band! Noise pollution is crushing all life on Earth. The threat comes from outer space, and has been dubbed S.O.T.W. (Smoke on the Water). The largest mega-corporation on the planet finances a crazy project called The P.R.I.S.M. (Purifying Recording Interplanetary Space Mission) – tasked with sending a musical supergroup into space to record a music album that will produce sounds able to push back against S.O.T.W. and save the planet!

SLOW BURN #1 (OF 5) – Acclaimed crime writer Ollie Masters (Snow Blind, The Kitchen) and artist Pierluigi Minotti (Lost Falls) introduce readers to a bleak and violent story, perfect for fans of Gideon Falls and Stray Bullets. Fleeing froma botched robbery in New York City, a junkie, her dying partner, and a dementia-adled old man think they’ve found the perfect place to lay low, score a fix, and take a hostage in Trier, Pennsylvania. It’s a coal mining ghost town obscured by the caustic mists spewed forth by the still burning coal-seam fire that began in the 1960s. But this couldn’t be further from the truth…

RETURN OF SUPERMAN 30TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL #1 ONE-SHOT – After the tragic events of more than 30 years ago, Metropolis mourned the loss of their greatest hero at the hands of Doomsday. Four Supermen rose to fill his shoes – Superboy, Steel, The Eradicator and Cyborg Superman – each with their own strengths and weaknesses. To celebrate the Reign of the Supermen and Return of Superman, DC has brought back the original creative teams for new stories set in the wake of Superman’s death. It all begins with new Daily Planet editor-in-chief Lois Lane discovering Perry White’s journals from the time and the secrets he kept as he searched for who could be the next Superman. What could this discovery mean for our present? Find out in this special that’s sure to be a classic in the future! Featuring an amazing wraparound cover with artwork from Dan Jurgens – also available in foil! Pre-order now to secure your favourite cover!

AMAZONS ATTACK #1 – Spinning out of the shocking events in the first issue of the new Wonder Woman series (still available in store!),the Amazons are now fighting for a world that no longer wants them! Led by their fearless Queen Nubia, a ragtag group of Amazons featuring Wonder Girl and Faruka II frantically searches for answers as their existence and way of life are threatened. A roller coaster of a debut issue!

ALAN SCOTT THE GREEN LANTERN #1 (OF 6) – Alan Scott is the most powerful member of the JSA, beloved by all of America, but his personal life is a well-kept secret. But his past is the key to his future when the Red Lantern appears, ready to strike down the mighty Green Lantern! This is a story about love, about fear, and most of all about courage to stand up to that fear.

WHITE WIDOW #1 – Yelena Belova has been many things, but now she is striking out as a hero in her own right. She’s finally free to choose her own path, but who will she become? Sarah Gailey (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Eat the Rich) and Alessandro Miracolo (Obi-Wan, Yoda) come together for a groundbreaking new chapter in the life of one of Marvel’s most enigmatic antiheroes.

CARNAGE #1 – Every symbiote needs a host. And for Carnage, there has only ever been one host who has made it feel whole – Cletus Kassady. It’s time for a dramatic reunion! A shocking and unexpected start to the next chapter of Carnage’s story – one which lays the groundwork for the next Venom epic!

ULTIMATE UNIVERSE #1 – A new team of heroes have assembled to save the future! Fresh from the worlds-shaking conclusion of Ultimate Invasion, mastermind Jonathan Hickman is joined by superstar artist Stefano Caselli to present this foundational issue for the new line of Ultimate Comics!

This one-shot will be automatically put aside for every Reservation Service customer who has Ultimate Invasion on their pull list!

POCUS HOCUS #1 (OF 4) – Behold, a whimsical journey filled with dark humour! Years ago, a disenchanted stagemagician made a deal with a demon, in exchange for real magic – actual powers! Now, despite being the greatest/most notorious magician the world has ever known, the feels that the deal has not gone his way, and he wants his soul back…

UNIVERSAL MONSTERS DRACULA #1 (OF 4) – The creators of The Department Of Truth – James Tynion IV(W0rldtr33, Something is Killing the Children) and Martin Simmonds – reunite! Dr. John Seward’s newest patient at his asylum is a madman full of stories about a demon who has taken up residence next door. But as the good Doctor tries to apply logic to the impossible, his surrogate daughter Lucy falls under the spell of the twisted Count Dracula!
