ULTIMATES #1

(W) Deniz Camp (A) Juan Frigeri (CA) Dike Ruan

Spinning out of Jonathan Hickman and Stefano Caselli’s Ultimate Universe #1, rising stars Deniz Camp (Children Of The Vault, 20th Century Men) and Juan Frigeri (Invincible Iron Man) assemble an all-new team of Ultimates in a series that kicks off the next chapter of the new Ultimate line.

Six months ago, Tony Stark sent Peter Parker a radioactive spider to set him back on the course to become Spider-Man. Since then, Iron Lad (Stark), Captain America, Doom, Thor and Sif have begun to do the same for other lost heroes, building a network of super-powered heroes hungry for change…

Now they must band together to destroy the Maker’s Council and restore freedom and free will to a world ruled from the shadows!

FALLING IN LOVE ON PATH TO HELL #1

(W) Gerry Duggan (A/CA) Garry Brown

The sun set on samurai and gunslingers at roughly the same time, but our two leads didn’t die off quietly.

The future lovers are mortally wounded a world apart and awake together in a purgatory ruled by a ruthless society of damned warriors.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES ALPHA #1

Since their time-spanning victory over Armaggon, the Turtles have started to pursue other interests, leaving a void in New York among humans and mutants alike.

This special issue explores the effects this change has on those connected to the brothers, from Old Hob to Jennika, across the five boroughs and all the way through Mutant Island. It’s hard to tell how important someone is until they are gone.

Now, Scarlett must use her very particular set of skills to survive undercover… and discover a shocking weapon that could change the balance of power on Earth.

Red-hot writer Kelly Thompson and artist Marco Ferrari introduce some of the most anticipated characters to the Energon Universe in ways you’ll never expect!


DC PRIDE A CELEBRATION OF RACHEL POLLACK #1 (ONE SHOT)

(W) Rachel Pollack, Joe Corallo (A) Scot Eaton, Michael Allred, Rye Hickman (CA) Various

In the Nineties, writer Rachel Pollack did the impossible: she raised the bar for surprise and strangeness in her beloved run following Grant Morrison’s career-making Doom Patrol!

This one-shot reprints the debut of the iconic Coagula, DC’s first transgender superhero, from Doom Patrol #70, along with the long-unavailable one-shot Vertigo Visions: The Geek (with superstar artist Michael Allred)!

And in a final, original short story, Rachel’s most beloved creation, Kate Godwin, a.k.a. Coagula, returns to the spotlight in tale of triumph over death itself written by Joe Corallo, Rachel’s longtime friend and collaborator, and drawn by Rye Hickman!


CULT OF THE LAMB #1

(W) Alex Paknadel (A) Troy Little (CA) Carles Dalmau

In a land pervaded by cruelty and evil, the most innocent among us – young Lamb, the last of their kind – was selected to become a final dark sacrifice.

Their death would forever seal the darkest of the Old Gods from our realm and usher in a new age ruled by the four eldritch Bishops of the Old Faith.

So Lamb died… then forged a deal of their own.

At the crossroads of eternity, Lamb was met by the imprisoned deity known as the One Who Waits, who revealed the lies and distortions of the false prophets who rule the world above. And so, Lamb was bequeathed the power and responsibilities of the Red Crown and returned to the land of living with unholy powers to exact vengeance and deliver a new cult unto the earth.

In partnership with Devolver Digital and Massive Monster, acclaimed writer Alex Paknadel (All Against All, Red Goblin) and Eisner Award-nominated artist Troy Little (Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons, Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas) comes a deviously delightful, heretic-smashing excursion into the sprawling cosmology of the worldwide, BAFTA-nominated video game phenomenon that IGN calls “adorably demonic”!

BARDA TP

(W/A/CA) Ngozi Ukazu

Join New York Times bestselling writer-artist Ngozi Ukazu (Check, Please!) as she takes readers on an unforgettable journey of self-discovery, deep friendships, and first loves!

Life on Apokolips is tough – but then, it is hell, after all. And no one knows this better than Barda, Granny Goodness’s right-hand warrior. But Barda has a secret… she is in love. Or she is drawn to the idea of it, anyway, whether it be the beauty of a flower; her affection for her closest friend, Aurelie; or the mysterious and fierce enemy warrior Orion, who is the only match for Barda’s strength.

When Granny decides Barda is becoming too soft, she assigns Barda a task that might be more than she can handle – to break the seemingly unbreakable Scott Free.

And as Barda questions why Scott has such hope and what he might have done to provoke such hatred from Granny, she finds herself drawn to him in a way she never expected. The only thing is, we do not speak of love on Apokolips…
