JUSTICE LEAGUE VS GODZILLA VS KONG #1 (OF 7)

(W) Brian Buccellato (A) Christian Duce (CA) Drew Johnson, (VCA) Jim Lee, Scott Williams

The cataclysmic crossover event of the year is here as the DC Universe clashes with Legendary’s Monsterverse in Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong.

Clark Kent is enjoying a night off with a very important dinner planned with his girlfriend, Lois Lane, when the entire city shudders under the weight of the monstrous Godzilla, who emerges from the bay! What started as a routine clash between the Justice League and the Legion of Doom takes a dangerous turn when the wall between worlds is breached…with Godzilla, Kong, and the Monsterverse emerging on DC’s Earth!

What ensues will be a brawl of unprecedented scale and destruction from acclaimed writer Brian Buccellato (Injustice) and bestselling artist Christian Duce (Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point)!

Wrap cover full art preview!


JAY GARRICK THE FLASH #1 (OF 6)

(W) Jeremy Adams (A) Diego Olortegui (CA) Jorge Corona

Spinning out of the events of Stargirl: The Lost Children and Justice Society of America, Jay Garrick is reunited with his long-lost daughter, Judy.

After being pulled from the timeline, Judy returns to a world where she and her dad aren’t the only ones that ride the lightning, but is there enough space for her in Jay and Joan’s life?

And can they keep up with their teenage daughter and make up for lost time?


BENEATH THE TREES WHERE NOBODY SEES #1

(W) Patrick Horvath (A/CA) Patrick Horvath

Don’t. Murder. The locals.

This is small-town serial killer, upstanding citizen, and adorable brown bear Samantha Strong’s cardinal rule.

After all, there’s a sea of perfectly ripe potential victims in the big city just beyond the forest, and when you’ve worked as hard as Sam to build a cozy life and a thriving business in a community surrounded by friendly fellow animal folk, warm décor, and the aroma of cedar trees and freshly baked apple pie… the last thing you want is to disturb the peace.

So you can imagine her indignation when one of Woodbrook’s own meets a grisly, mysterious demise – and you wouldn’t blame her for doing anything it takes to hunt down her rival before the town self-destructs and Sheriff Patterson starts (literally) barking up the wrong tree.

Live, laugh, shed blood.


OPERATION SUNSHINE #1

(W) Henry Zebrowski, Marcus Parks (A) David Rubin (CA) David Aja

From the New York Times-bestselling hosts of the hit The Last Podcast on the Left and Black Hammer‘s David Rubin comes this all-new humourous, horror, and action-packed comic book series that’s Near Dark meets Ocean’s Eleven.

A group of young, alienated vampires known as “”bugs”” plot to steal a magical object from ancient monstrous vampires to turn themselves back to human. Along the way they uncover a sprawling monster underground, a top-secret plot run by the elder creatures, elite militant vampire slayers, and madness beyond imagining blocking their path to humanity.

THE MYSTERIES HC

(W) Bill Watterson (A) Bill Watterson, John Kascht

In this fable for grown-ups, a long-ago kingdom is afflicted with unexplainable calamities. Hoping to end the torment, the king dispatches his knights to discover the source of the mysterious events. Years later, a single battered knight returns.

For the book’s illustrations, Watterson and caricaturist John Kascht worked together for several years in unusually close collaboration. Both artists abandoned their past ways of working, inventing images together that neither could anticipate – a mysterious process in its own right.

From Bill Watterson, bestselling creator of the beloved comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, and John Kascht, one of America’s most renowned caricaturists, comes a mysterious and beautifully illustrated fable about what lies beyond human understanding.

Who would do such a thing?

And more importantly – will he strike again?

From the depths of London’s workhouses to the pinnacle of a glittering Christmas Eve party in Mayfair, this is to be a Christmas that will require not only Holmes’s celebrated scientific method, but also the bravery for which he and Watson are renowned.

Now that he knows the unbelievable truth, Bruce needs real answers. Joined by Barbara Gordon and Jason Todd, two former victims of The Joker’s brutality, the Dark Knight is finally on a path to defeat the madman once and for all.
