VARIANTS #1 (OF 5)
(W) Gail Simone (A/CA) Phil Noto
What would it really be like to meet an alternate version of yourself, another you who had made different choices and lived a completely different life as a result?
That’s the question facing Jessica Jones, as what seemed like a routine investigation instead has her encountering other incarnations of herself from across the Multiverse. Can Jessica get along with herself? Will she want to kill her other selves? And will seeing the lives she could have led drive her into a self-destructive spiral?
This is what happens when you meet…the Variants!

Frankenstein meets D&D! Miraculously revived from what appears to have been a gruesome death, Miranda finds herself brought back to life, with no memory, in the mysterious lab of the infamously talented Dr. Viktra Mordenheim of Lamordia. Through unsavory experiments, and flashbacks illustrated by a new guest artist each issue, Miranda will begin to piece together-literally one body part at a time-how she met such a horrifying fate. Who wanted her dead, and how has she found herself reanimated at Schloss Mordenheim? Miranda will be forced to reckon with why Viktra would go through all this terrifying trouble to bring her back.

TEEN TITANS GO UNDEAD TP
(W) Michael Northrop (A) Various (CA) Erich Owen
Jump City is full of strange, shambling creatures muttering about sales and dead set on brains. The Teen Titans saw a comet fall from the sky and can think of nowhere better to hang out and see what happens than the mall. If their theory is correct and people start turning into zombies, they want to be prepared – and we all know zombies love the mall! But as the situation grows ever more dire, Robin and his team take to the streets, trying to save the city from the bargain-hungry undead. But these zombies really bite: the cemetery isn’t safe, the H.I.V.E. Five are not alive, and Robin’s teammates are about to succumb to shopping fever! Can Robin keep it together long enough to cancel this apocalypse?
WHATS THE FURTHEST PLACE FROM HERE VOL 01 TP
(W) Matthew Rosenberg (A/CA) Tyler Boss
When 16-year-old Sid goes missing in the wastelands, it’s up to the members of her gang to discover what happened. But what they find is a whole world beyond anything they could have imagined. Like Lord of the Rings meets Lord of the Flies, or JOHN CARPENTER by way of JOHN HUGHES, this series smashes together sci-fi and fantasy with elements of comedy, horror, and mystery for an emotional coming-of-age story unlike anything you’ve read before.
From Eisner-nominated artist TYLER BOSS (4 Kids Walk Into A Bank, Dead Dog’s Bite) and bestselling writer MATTHEW ROSENBERG (DC vs. Vampires, Uncanny X-Men) comes an epic adventure about growing up and getting lost at the end of the world.

In the distant past, Thor discovers a cave echoing with the cries of tortured gods! In the present, Thor follows the bloody wake of murdered gods across the depths of space. And millennia from now, the last god-king of Asgard makes his final stand against Gorr’s berserker legions. As Thors from three eras race to stop Gorr, his scheme’s full extent is revealed: What is the Godbomb? At the end of time, the universe’s remaining gods are enslaved, building a machine that will forever change the face of creation. Three time-bending Thors unite, but will it all be for naught as the massive Godbomb is triggered?
