Wednesday is new release day! This week includes one of the Dark Knight’s greatest villains, Thor’s secret origin, sanity-eating monsters, barbaric score-settling, a legion of Spidey-heroes, and more. Check out the highlights below!
BATMAN ONE BAD DAY THE RIDDLER #1 (ONE SHOT)
(W) Tom King (A/CA) Mitch Gerads
The Riddler, Two-Face, the Penguin, Mr. Freeze, Catwoman, Bane, Clayface, and Ra’s al Ghul – Batman’s most iconic villains are all given 64-page Prestige format specials that show why they are the greatest villains in all of comics, spearheaded by today’s top talent!
The Dark Knight’s most intellectual foe is the Riddler. And he’s just killed a man in broad daylight for seemingly no reason, but… there’s always a reason. The Riddler is always playing a game, there are always rules. Batman will reach his wits’ end trying to figure out the Riddler’s true motivation in this epic psychological thriller; this is not to be missed!
HEART EYES #1
(W) Dennis Hopeless (A/CA) Victor Ibanez
Sanity-eating monsters ended humanity.
The unlucky few who survived now hide in the cracks of a broken world.
And yet somehow, beneath the graveyard that used to be San Antonio, Rico met Lupe, the girl of his dreams.
But how did she get here? And why is she smiling?
No one survives out in the street.
No one smiles where the monsters lurk.

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for – the start of an all-new arc of BARBARIC!
Follow Owen and his magical companion, the tender, talking Axe as they spread kindness and hope in a world gone bad… just kidding! Owen, Axe, and Soren are back, and so is all the mayhem and bloodshed that follows them wherever they go! This time, they’re out to settle an old score against Gladius, a wicked a$$hole who did Owen wrong way back in his barbarian days. As always… it’s just f***ing barbaric.

WANDANCE VOL 01 GN
(W) Coffee (A) Coffee
Kaboku has always just gone with the flow, marching in step to the drumbeat of the expectations of those around him: parents, school, plans for the future. It feels predictable, safe, and… empty. But one night, Kaboku’s at school late, and he happens on a girl alone, moving wildly, turning a blank space of concrete into a canvas. This is Hikari Wanda, a member of the hip-hop dance club. Kaboku is immediately smitten, but the road to stepping out of his shell is a long one. The club is almost entirely girls, and they’re all, well, way better than him. What’s ahead is unknown, and that’s terrifying, but it also means, for the first time in Kaboku’s life a taste of freedom.
As seen on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2022!
