SPIRIT WORLD #1 (OF 6)
(W) Alyssa Wong (A/CA) Haining
Their name is Xanthe, and their superpower is being able to burn items folded from joss paper and immediately turn them into real objects, based on the East Asian practice of burning joss paper at graveyards in order to send resources to ancestors in the Spirit World… except Xanthe can retrieve those items in the world of the living! Their weapon of choice is a large broadsword (because who doesn’t love a big sword when you can choose to use a big sword?!).
Xanthe is a master of the dark arts who’s here to give Constantine a run for his money… literally.
When Constantine shows up saying Xanthe scammed him into buying something, he finds them and Batgirl Cass Cain fighting an abnormal influx of jiangshi (Chinese hopping vampires) and joins in to help.
But when a portal opens up that drags Batgirl into the Spirit World, it’s up to Xanthe and Constantine to travel to the land of the spirits to rescue her! Who knows what other spirits we’ll find in the Spirit World – like that skateboarding boy wearing hanfu with some headphones and a gaping hole in his chest?!
KONG GREAT WAR #1
(W) Alex Cox (CA) Bryan Hitch
The World at War! While men of all nations fight on foreign shores, an Imperial German U-Boat is lost at sea!
The crew now faces terror beyond imagination! Monsters from creation’s dawn!
Gruesome, blood-stained death from above and below! Impossible beasts, reigning by fear and violence in the South Pacific!
And looming over all, the gargantuan ape-god that knows no master – KONG!
SOMETHING EPIC #1
(W) Szymon Kudranski (A/CA) Szymon Kudranski
IMAGINATION IS REAL.
Outside our perception, creative thought takes physical form, with only a handful of individuals known as Epics able to interact with this wondrous hidden world. But for fourteen-year-old Danny Dillon, accepting these responsibilities himself won’t be easy-or safe.
Lose yourself in a world of endless fantasy and creativity, where superheroes, monsters, magical creatures, and cartoon characters live and breathe alongside us.
GRIMM SPACE P1-NOCHHIO #1
(W) Frank Martin (A/CA) Ramiro Borrallo
After malfunctioning repeatedly aboard his old ship, P1-Nocchio was most grateful for being repaired and upgraded by a tinkerer named Petto.
He was so grateful that P1-Nocchio dreamed of one day becoming a real boy to give Petto the son he always wanted.
Unfortunately, the wide-eyed robot would soon learn that wishes made upon a star don’t come true so easily.
(W) Jonathan Hedrick (A/CA) Debora Lancianese
After a mysterious hole opens in the Egyptian desert, horrific creatures climb out and wreak havoc on a nearby city.
They retreat as quickly as they arrived, leaving the planet in shock by this unfathomable event.
A team of elite specialists from around the globe called “Canary One” are sent after the monsters to discover more about them.
But when the crew never returns, the world must prepare for the possibility of another wave of attacks…

Man, machine and the most terrifying creature in the universe! It’s an express elevator to hell, and you’ll want to be on it!
A small colony of synths has settled in secret on a backwater moon. When a company of United System soldiers comes to them for help retrieving biotechnology on a hostile planet that could be the key to saving humanity, the synths must decide whether the prospect of peace between man and machine is worth the risk of betrayal. Because “Steel Team” – the legendary, unkillable Synthetic Special Operations team – is the United Systems’ only hope as they navigate the hellscape that the once-idyllic Tobler-9 has become.
Since its mysterious downfall years earlier, Tobler-9 is considered one of the most hostile environments in the known universe – a place where nothing organic could possibly have survived… or could it?
