CAPTAIN AMERICA #0
(W) Tochi Onyebuchi, Collin Kelly, Jackson Lanzing (A) Mattia De Iulis (CA) Mark Brooks or Alex Ross
When Arnim Zola launches a catastrophic attack on New York City, he meets his match – in Sam Wilson and Steve Rogers! In the explosive battle that follows, two Captain Americas prove better than one, and Sam and Steve decide they might just keep a good thing going…
Tochi Onyebuchi (BLACK PANTHER LEGENDS), Jackson Lanzing & Collin Kelly (KANG THE CONQUEROR) and Mattia De Iulis (THE MIGHTY VALKYRIES, INVISIBLE WOMAN) kick off an incredible new CAPTAIN AMERICA saga, and you won’t want to miss what comes next!
THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #1
(W) Sarah Gailey (A) Irene Flores (CA) Goni Montes
After years of fighting against the forces of evil, Buffy Summers finds herself succumbing to the burden of bearing the Slayer mantle. To help his Slayer, Rupert Giles is willing to risk a return to chaos magic, and with Willow’s help, they attempt a spell to remove the trauma from Buffy’s psyche. The effects backfire though, and leave Buffy unable to remember her past, or her purpose!
With Sunnydale under attack, a new Slayer must rise to protect it, while Buffy’s friends race against the clock to restore her true self.
COROLLARY #1 (OF 4)
(W) Adam Rose (A/CA) Robert Ahmad
In a galaxy filled with twin moons, twin suns, and twin planets, everything comes in twos. Even the people. And if your twin dies … so do you. This is the way it’s always been.
So, when Captain Andromeda’s twin loses her life in a far-off military battle, and Captain Andromeda herself DOES NOT die, needless to say, the universe demands answers. Answers that the Captain is willing to give … to the highest bidder, of course.
This is COROLLARY – a four-issue bombastic sci-fi romp.
DOCTOR STRANGE NEXUS OF NIGHTMARES #1
(W) Ralph Macchio (A) Ibrahim Moustafa (CA) Todd Nauck
TO DREAM OR NOT TO DREAM!
Nightmare has invaded Doctor Strange’s dreams and turned them into terrible nightmares! These dark feelings now inhabit every fiber of Doctor Strange’s waking life and has left him weak and unable to protect the realm! Now, Baron Mordo and Nightmare are ready to strike! Can Stephen shake Nightmare’s grip over him? Or will the world be lost to Nightmare’s dream realm forever!
SECRET HISTORY OF WAR ON WEED (ONE-SHOT)
(W) Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn (A/CA) Scott Koblish
The year is 1985. The First Lady decides to crush Northern California cannabis farmers and deploys the biggest tool in the armed forces: Scotch McTiernan (collectible first of many hilarious appearances). “If it weeds…we can kill it.” Scotch puts his boots on the ground in Humboldt and does what he does best-but what happens when he gets high for the first time?
This one-shot has it all: laughs, tears, heart, action-plus, an activity page!
BRIAN POSEHN, GERRY DUGGAN & SCOTT KOBLISH reform Voltron (metaphorically only) from their days on Deadpool (also not appearing) to tell a true story and lost chapter from the United States’ sad and failed war on drugs.
A portion of the proceeds from this comic will be donated by the publisher to organisations dedicated to helping casualties of America’s drug war.

STILL JUST A GEEK ANNOTATED MEMOIR HC
(W) Wil Wheaton
Celebrated actor, personality, and all-around nerd, Wil Wheaton updates his memoir of collected blog posts with all new material and annotations as he reexamines one of the most interesting lives in Hollywood and fandom! From starring in Stand by Me to playing Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation to playing himself in his second (third?) iconic role of Evil Wil Wheaton in The Big Bang Theory, to becoming a social media supernova, Wil Wheaton has charted a career course unlike anyone else, and has emerged as one of the most popular and well-respected names in science fiction, fantasy, and pop culture.
Back in 2001, Wil began blogging on wilwheaton.net. Believing himself to have fallen victim to the curse of the child actor, Wil felt relegated to the convention circuit, and didn’t expect many would want to read about his random experiences and personal philosophies. Yet, much to his surprise, people were reading. He still blogs, and has an enormous presence on-line.
In Still Just a Geek, Wil revisits his 2004 collection of blog posts, Just a Geek, filled with insightful and often laugh-out-loud annotated comments, additional later writings, and all new material written for this publication. The result is an incredibly raw and honest memoir, in which Wil opens up about his life, about falling love, coming to grips with a stagnant career he did not choose, overcoming and healing childhood abuse, and the search for creative and emotional fulfillment as a storyteller. From his times on the Enterprise, to his struggles with anxiety, depression, and PTSD, to his starting a family and embracing his passion – writing – Wil Wheaton’s journey is an inspiring and empowering tale, a story of finding one’s true purpose that should resonate with fans and aspiring artists alike.
SANDMAN BOOK 02 TP
(W) Neil Gaiman (A) Art by Kelley Jones, Mike Dringenberg, and others (CA) Dave McKean
Ten thousand years ago, Morpheus condemned a woman who loved him to Hell. Now the other members of his immortal family, the Endless, have convinced the Dream King that this was an injustice. To make it right, Morpheus must return to Hell to rescue his banished love—and Hell’s ruler, the fallen angel Lucifer, has already sworn to destroy him.
Neil Gaiman’s epic continues in The Sandman Book Two, collecting issues #21-37, The Sandman Special #1, and stories from Vertigo: Winter’s Edge #1-3.
Also released this week…
- Dark Nights Death Metal TP
- My Hero Academia Vol 30 GN
The Looking Glass has shattered, madness is being drained from the inhabitants, and war has come to Wonderland. Alice, Mad Hatter, Red Queen, and Jabberwock must gather all that they can while playing nice at the Hatter’s Tea Party before going to battle in Wonderland’s War!
In this Drafting, Bag Building, Area Control game 2-5 players take the role as a Faction Leader who has been invited to the Hatter’s Tea Party. Drink tea and eat cake as you move around the table drafting cards to gather your forces, build your towers, Upgrade your Leader, and recruit Wonderlandians to your cause.
