DISNEY VILLAINS MALEFICENT #1 – Dynamite’s new series of Disney comics expand with a stunning vision of villainy from writer and artist Soo Lee! Maleficent’s soul is cold, hardened by a lifetime of small-minded wanderers seeking to steal her powers to satisfy their greed. Her realm is shrouded in darkness, and evil, and her patience wears thin. It’s only a matter of time before the Queen of the Forbidden Mountain descends to unleash her horrible magics upon the peons below!

MONOMYTH #1 (OF 6) – An all-new miniseries from the mind of David Hazan (Nottingham). Magic is all but extinct. The last ailing wizard casts a final desperate spell to summon the descendants of ancient bloodlines to a now dilapidated school for magic. These chosen ones now face a horror unlikes anything they’ve ever experienced. And they will defeat each other to survive the ordeal…

PEACEMAKER TRIES HARD #1 (OF 6) – He’s earned his release from the Suicide Squad and now Peacemaker wants to try and do normal superhero stuff. Nobody is on his side, until he meets an adorable pug whilst busting up a terrorist ring. Christopher Smith has never known unconditional love before – and it’s promptly ripped away from him again when the pooch is dognapped by a super-villain. One that will now blackmail him into stealing some very dangerous DNA. From Kyle Starks (I Hate This Place, Six Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton) and art legend Steve Pugh (Preacher Special: Saint of Killers, Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass)!

GHOSTLORE #1 (OF 12) – Harmony Agate, an estranged daughter and her pastor father, Lucas wander a haunted land; they only have the restless spirits, each with its own story to tell, as company along the way. The Agates were the only survivors of a deadly accident, that left them able to see – and hear – the dead, all with their own warnings, cries for help, and malevolence. We’ve all heard of ghost stories… but what stories do the ghosts themselves tell us? From Cullen Bunn (Basilisk and The Empty Man) and superstar artist Leomacs (Basketful of Heads), each issue will also feature a guest artist bringing the ghost stories told to Lucas and Harmony to (after)life.

LAMENTATION #1 – A darkly glamorous tale of bone-splintering terror from Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun, Basilisk) and rising star Arjuna Susini (Made Men). A new theatrical production is about to debut at the famed Requiem theatre – Razide’s Lament – three acts of gothic horror set inside a haunted castle with a story that some say is more than mere fantasy. The lead actress has found herself cast in the role of a lifetime without so much as an audition. Under the stern rule of a dedicated but temperamental director, the script seems to be ever-changing throughout the weeks of gruelling rehearsals. There is no exit, no escape, and a barrage of razors in the night that will terrorize audiences and actors alike. When the curtain finally rises, Razide himself will take centre stage to cross the threshold into the unholy darkness that lies just beyond…

WITHIN TEMPTATION #1 (OF 3) – Based on the smash hit album “Resist” by legendary symphonic metal band Within Temptation! In the distant future, an endless battle rages between an advanced but inherently humanoid species ruled by a techno-organic matriarch and a cruel race of alien AI. Several stories collide to paint a sweeping portrait of the matriarch’s life and her struggle to balance what she was created to be with the impossible forces that shape her.

SURVIVAL #1 (OF 5) – Back in her Alaskan hometown for a tense family reunion at the annual military alumni get together, Emma Reed is about to get more than she bargained for. Earlier that morning, a plane crashed into the thick woods at the edge of the nearby mountain, and a ancient creature escaped from the wreckage. A terror that will turn this unspoiled wilderness into a killing ground…

STAR TREK ECHOES #1 – A brand-new miniseries set just after Star Trek: The Motion Picture featuring a never-before-seen adventure from Captain Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise! It’s up to them to stop a bounty hunter from another universe and her target – a criminal mastermind – from unintentionally starting a war with the Romulans and unleashing a superweapon of extra-dimensional tech. And these strangers are more familiar than they assume – they’redoppelgangers from an alternate reality!

STARSIGNS #1 – An exciting new series about astrology, superpowers, and diverse found family, in the tradition of X-Men and Heroes from Eisner-winning writer Saladin Ahmed (Miles Morales) and sci-fi star artist Megan Levens (Star Trek)! The constellations of the zodiac have fallen to Earth, each granting ordinary people from very different walks of life the superpowers of the starsigns. And each of them is about to learn that power always comes with a price…

EXTREME VENOMVERSE #1 (OF 5) – The Summer of Symbiotes is underway! And to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the creation of Venom, this series will delve into the never-before-seen corners of the hive in three titanic tales! First up, comics superstars Ryan North and Paulo Siqueira put a fresh and exciting spin on a familiar story… starring Eddie Brock as… SPIDER-MAN?! Next, Mirka Andolfo, shows you a new side of the whole Brock family! And finally, Leonardo Romero, reimagines Venom as a samurai!

SILK #1 (OF 5) – Cindy Moon is back, and Silk is gaining popularity in the public eye, which she is finding extremely unsettling. And now a powerful new villain – rooted in the dangers of ancient Korean magic – is turned loose! It’s a race against the clock! Don’t miss the comics debut of stunning storyteller Emily Kim and the return of legendary comic artist Takeshi Miyazawa!

SHAZAM #1 – The fan-favourite team of Mark Waid and Dan Mora (Batman/Superman: World’s Finest) bring the magic back to the World’s Mightiest Mortal in a dazzling new solo series! Welcome to the wild adventures of Billy Batson! Dinosaurs from outer space! Homicidal worms and talking tigers! The Clubhouse of Eternity! Atomic robots, alien worlds, mad scientists, sinister curses, and villains from throughout the DC Universe – it’s all here! Shazam!
