UNNATURAL ORDER #1

(W) Chris Yost (A/CA) Val Rodrigues

After the fall of the Britons and the Roman invasion of Hibernia, the captive known only as the Druid is released, sending a darkness across the world… an age of horrors, of fire and entrails.

As the innocent burn in the Wicker fields, those who would resist learn of the existence of a man who even the Druid fears.

For it is this prisoner, a soldier from a different time, who alone knows the Druid’s secret: this is not how the world is supposed to be.

CANARY #1

(W) Scott Snyder (A/CA) Dan Panosian

In 1891 a mine collapsed into itself. What was the dark substance found 666 feet underground?

During the final days of the Gold Rush, one mining company in Colorado, pulled up radioactive Uranium, and then the mine then collapsed in on itself. Legends sprung up about the mine being cursed or even haunted.

Now the Frontier is closed, the gold and silver mines have dried up. The country is becoming “civilized,” and yet, in one stretch of the Rocky Mountains, a terrifying, new kind of violence is suddenly emerging. Random killings. People going mad and murdering neighbours, classmates without real cause. When a schoolboy kills his teacher with a hatchet, a famous federal marshal named Azrael William Holt is called in to investigate the killings.

What he – and a brilliant young geologist – uncover is stranger and more horrifying than anything they could have ever imagined.

Blending modern horror, historical fact and Western lore, Scott Snyder and Dan Panosian have created a uniquely terrifying thriller with Canary.


ALMOST DEAD #1

(W) Galaxy (A) Ryan Benjamin (CA) Tyler Kirkham

After having an accident on her way home to visit her family, Sara Walker awakens to find that the world has changed.

Now she must travel up the Eastern Seaboard, using suppressed survival skills she learned as a child, in hopes of reuniting with her loved ones in the midst of a viral pandemic that has turned humans into monsters.

Set in modern day 2005, Sara unites with old acquaintances and new friends along the way, and her struggle to survive will be both an unexpectedly exciting journey and an absolute horror.

Almost Dead is a new post-apocalyptic horror-drama adventure about triumph, growth and the resiliency of the human spirit brought to you by writer and Comic Con Radio / Spoiler Magazine founder Galaxy and Eisner nominated artist Ryan Benjamin (Batman Beyond, Star Wars, Xmen, Grifter) that redefines the genre, with its cinematic approach and attention to detail.   

Relentlessly vicious, Almost Dead isn’t your typical apocalyptic story. Tying in conspiracy with historical flashbacks and showing how perhaps everything we’ve learned in our textbooks has been altered over time.


RETURN OF SUPERMAN 30TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL #1 (ONE SHOT)

(W) Dan Jurgens, Louise Simonson, Jerry Ordway, and Karl Kesel (A) Travis Moore, Dan Jurgens, Brett Breeding, Jon Bogdanove, Butch Guice, Tom Grummett, and Doug Hazlewood (CA) Dan Jurgens

Superman returns! After the tragic events of more than 30 years ago, when Superman met his end at the hands of Doomsday, Metropolis mourned the loss of their greatest hero and soon turned their attention to the search for his successor. Four Supermen rose to the challenge: Superboy, Steel, Eradicator, and Cyborg Superman. Each with their own strengths and weaknesses, they fought in honor of the original Man of Steel. Little did they know, his return was just around the corner!

To celebrate the Reign of the Supermen and Return of Superman, DC has brought back the original creative teams for new stories set in the wake of Superman’s death. It all begins with new Daily Planet editor-in-chief Lois Lane discovering Perry White’s journals from the time and the secrets he kept as he searched for who could be the next Superman. What could this discovery mean for our present? Find out in this special that’s sure to be a classic in the future!

But now those mysteries will be revealed while they embark on exciting new adventures… TOGETHER!

Rated T


WHITE WIDOW #1

(W) Sarah Gailey (A) Alessandro Miracolo (CA) Stanley Lau “Artgerm”

Superspy. Rogue agent. Shadow of the Black Widow. Yelena Belova has been many things, but striking out as a hero in her own right is new to her. Now that she’s finally free to choose her own path, who will she become?

ALONG CAME A RADIOACTIVE SPIDER STRANGE STEVE DITKO & THE CREATION OF SPIDER-MAN HC

(W) Annie Hunter Eriksen (A) Lee Gatlin

Spider-Man’s web of stories began far before the first drawing of nerdy teenager Peter Parker. They started with Steve Ditko, a kid who loved comics so much that he would brave blizzards to get new issues. Steve was strange – he was introverted, his art was shadowy, and his characters didn’t fit the mold of handsome heroes like those crafted by Marvel legends Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. But it’s not so strange that the traits that made Steve different were what made his characters stand out.

Swing into the life of Steve Ditko and discover how he transformed a brawny, super-powered Spiderman into the perpetually awkward teenager who we know and love: Spider-Man, a character who relies on his inner strength more than super strength, who got his powers not through magic but through the bite of a radioactive spider…

This biography takes the mask off the famously reclusive artist and shares the story of how his wall-crawling hero became a friendly neighbourhood icon.


JIM HENSON’S LABYRINTH GOODNIGHT GOBLIN KING HC

(W) S. T. Bende (A) Bill Robinson

It’s bedtime in the Labyrinth!

Goodnight, Hoggle. Goodnight, Ludo.
Goodnight to the gatekeepers whispering riddles.

Drift off to dreamland with the creatures of Jim Henson’s Labyrinth!

It’s bedtime in the castle, but baby Toby is wide awake. Using one of his signature magical orbs, Jareth the Goblin King shows Toby how knights, worms, goblins, and other creatures of the Labyrinth go to sleep every night.

Experience the cult classic film in a whole new way in this illustrated original storybook, perfect for bedtime reading.


ALICE OF SPADES VOL 01 GN

(W) Chase Kantor (A) Chris Peterson, Tiffany Tate

The story of a kingdom on the brink of revolution.

Alice, now the sole heir to the Spade throne, is the target of religious fanatics hellbent on twisting her to their cause. With only her lazy cat and the clothes on her back, Alice must flee her privileged life and embark on a journey where any turn could be her last.

Forced to work as a servant in a foreign land, Alice must use all her wits to stay alive whilst searching for an opportunity to escape the Club palace.

Meanwhile, factions across the kingdom continue their plans for their bloody conquest.

Can Alice figure a way out before invading forces descend upon her once more?


CONFETTI REALMS GN

(W) Nadia Shammas (A) Karnessa

On Halloween night, when the moon is full, teenagers get up to mischief. But when an encounter with a giant, sentient puppet in a graveyard sends five teens to a mysterious dimension called the Confetti Realms, they must overcome obstacles in their own friendships-and collect the debted teeth owed to the puppet-in order to make their way home.

But the allure of staying in a fantasy world is a hard one to beat, and going home to their normal lives is starting to sound less and less appealing for some.

Will these friends return home?
