HEARTPIERCER #1

(W) Rich Douek (A/CA) Gavin Smith

TRANSFORMERS #5 2ND PTG CVR B HOWARD

TRANSFORMERS #6 2ND PTG CVR A HOWARD

STITCHES HC

(W) Hirokatsu Kihara (A) Junji Ito

A tumour shaped like a man’s face slowly moves across a woman’s body. The sea shoots glowing balls into the sky, much to the distress of beachgoers. And a girl dressed up for a holiday has no eyes, no nose, nothing – her face is a total blank.

Hirokatsu Kihara pens true stories of unsolved mysteries, stitched together with page after page of Junji Ito’s original illustrations in this collection of nine eerie tales and a bonus manga story.


CRITICAL ROLE MIGHTY NEIN ORIGINS BEAUREGARD LIONETT HC

(W) Mae Catt, Matthew Mercer, Marisha Ray (A) Guilherme Balbi, Diana Sousa

Despite her origins with a “traditional” family, Beau’s penchant for troublemaking was legendary. Outraged by her criminal activity, Beau’s father arranged for her to be kidnapped and turned over to the order of monks known as the Cobalt Soul for some much-needed discipline and direction.

But the direction Beau takes – toward the Mighty Nein – isn’t what anyone anticipated!

From Mae Catt, and Critical Role’s Matthew Mercer and Marisha Ray, comes Mighty Nein member Beauregard Lionett’s origin story in a hardcover graphic novel.


TRANSFORMERS VOL 01 ROBOTS IN DISGUISE TP DIRECT MARKET ED

(W) Daniel Warren Johnson (A) Jordan Michael Johnson, Mike Spicer (CA) Jonboy Meyers

Optimus Prime was supposed to have led the Autobots to victory. Instead, the fate of Cybertron is unknown, and his allies have crash-landed far from home, alongside their enemies – the Decepticons? As these titanic forces renew their war on Earth, one thing is immediately clear: the planet will never be the same. New alliances are struck. Battle lines are redrawn. And humanity’s only hope of survival is Optimus Prime?

Featuring a Direct Market Exclusive cover by Jonboy Meyers that will only be printed once.

Superstar creator Daniel Warren Johnson (Do A Powerbomb!, Wonder Woman: Dead Earth), alongside Energon Universe showrunner Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead, Invincible), reimagines Hasbro’s robots in disguise for a brand-new generation.

Collects TRANSFORMERS #1-6.


DEER EDITOR TP

(W) Ryan Lindsay (A) Sami Kivela (CA) Sami Kivel

A John Doe slaying lures a journalist into a world of political intrigue, a wi-fi-enabled grotto, and a station locker full of secrets.

For Bucky, an editor of the crime beat at “The Truth,” it’s all in a day’s work…  but he also happens to be a deer.

Will he chase down his last story in this antler noir series? 

Deer Editor is perfect for fans of Blacksad and Chinatown.


POISON IVY VOL 01 THE VIRTUOUS CYCLE TP

(W) G. Willow Wilson (A) Marcio Takara (CA) Jessica Fong

The fan-favourite Batman villain steps into the solo spotlight, in a thrilling and tragic adventure from the visionary creative team of writer G. Willow Wilson and artist Marcio Takara.

Pamela Isley has been a lot of things in her life. A living god, a super-villain, an activist, a scientist, and dead. In a new body that she didn’t ask for and with a renewed sense of purpose, Ivy leaves Gotham and sets out to complete her greatest work – a gift to the world that will heal the damage dealt to it… by ending humanity.

Collects POISON IVY #1-6.
