SIGNAL 29 (ONE SHOT)

(W) Jon McCarthy (A/CA) Robby Musso

Two New Orleans medics respond to a seedy motel to pronounce a dead body, which isn’t quite as dead as it seems.

Signal 29 is a one-shot that takes a unique, and more intimate, approach to the zombie genre where the reader joins a pair of first responders as they encounter Patient Zero as the dead begin to rise.

Writer Jon McCarthy – himself a paramedic – presents a love letter to the emergency medical services.


A HAUNTED GIRL #1 (OF 4)

(W) Ethan Sacks, Naomi Sacks (A) Marco Lorenzano (CA) Joe Quesada

Meet Cleo, an adopted 16-year-old Japanese-American whose anxiety and depression drove her to near-suicide. Now she’s fresh out of the hospital and trying unsuccessfully to reintegrate back into her old life.

What she doesn’t know is that her real struggles are just beginning as she finds herself encountering an increasingly terrifying succession of ghosts.

Is she losing her grip on reality… or is the explanation much, much worse?


CAPWOLF HOWLING COMMANDOS #1

(W) Stephanie Phillips (A) Carlos Magno (CA) Ryan Brown

When Captain America is transformed into a werewolf on the front lines of World War II, he’ll need the help of the Howling Commandos to take down a band of Nazi cultists who intend to use supernatural forces to turn the tide of battle.

But how can Cap control the skeptical, jaded Commandos when he can barely control himself?

Rated T+


WESLEY DODDS THE SANDMAN #1 (OF 6)

(W) Robert Venditti (A/CA) Riley Rossmo

THE GOLDEN AGE SANDMAN RETURNS IN A NEW NOIR MYSTERY!

No one escapes the Sandman’s dark dreams, not even Wesley Dodds himself. After years of testing and experimentation, Wesley perfected his sleep gas as the optimal weapon to fight crime without causing undue harm. But when his journal detailing all his failed and far more deadly formulas is stolen, the Sandman must hunt down the thief and the people in the shadows pulling the strings before the contents of the journal are released!


BATMAN CITY OF MADNESS #1 (OF 3)

(W/A/CA) Christian Ward

VISIONARY CREATOR CHRISTIAN WARD UNLEASHES A COSMIC-HORROR EPIC, FEATURING THE COURT OF OWLS!

Buried deep beneath Gotham City there exists another Gotham. This Gotham Below is a living nightmare, populated by twisted mirrors of our Gotham’s denizens, fueled by the fear and hatred flowing down from above. For decades, the doorway between the cities has been sealed and heavily guarded by the Court of Owls.

But now the door swings wide, and the twisted version of the Dark Knight has escaped… to trap and train a Robin of his own. Batman must form an uneasy alliance with the Court and its deadly allies to stop him – and to hold back the wave of twisted super-villains, nightmarish versions of his own nemeses, each one worse than the last, that’s spilling into his streets!

Visionary writer-artist Christian Ward unleashes his cosmic-horror take on Batman’s world, in a tribute to disturbing Dark Knight classics like Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Gothic! You’ll never look at Batman’s villains the same way again… you simply won’t have the stomach for it!

When a young and rambunctious Diana, along with her trusty goat Phyllis, accidentally destroys the painstaking preparations for a festival celebrating the story of Hero – the first hero in Greek mythology – she must embark on a painful journey to clean up her mess.

But with the help of the Amazons’ vivid yet unreliable retellings of Hero’s story, what starts out as a boring chore becomes an epic adventure!
