(W) Dan Abnett (A) Damian Couceiro (CA) Lee Garbett (VCA) Peach Momoko
MONSTER, HERO, GUARDIAN.. . GROOT!
Before he was a Guardian of the Galaxy… before the Grootfall… young Groot lived a life of tranquility on his serene home world. But when monstrous invaders attack his planet, Groot must accept his heroic destiny! Will this destiny lead him to come to blows with a young Kree soldier by the name of Mar-Vell?

ASTROBOTS #1 (OF 5)
(W) Simon Furman (A/VCA) Hector Trunnec (CA) Phillip Knott
Pathfinders, Pioneers… breaking new ground in the furthest reaches of the galaxy.. .they are – ASTROBOTS.
The clock is ticking for planet Earth and the race is on to find a new world capable of sustaining human life. New, sophisticated machine lifeforms called Astrobots are dispatched to scout far-flung worlds in the hope of crafting a new home. With food and raw materials running out and climate disasters escalating, the evacuation of the entire human population is the only slender hope remaining.
On Colony World 1, a catastrophic power struggle forges a new – all-Astrobot – society, and presiding over this nascent civilization is Atlas, an evolved mech with a futureproof plan.
A plan that does not include humankind.
Based on the highly articulated and dynamic action figure toyline by Aaron Thomas!

(W) Sean Lewis (A) Bryndon Everett (CA) Tom Coker

PEACEMAKER TRIES HARD #1 (OF 6)
(W) Kyle Starks (A) Steve Pugh (CA) Kris Anka
Having earned his release from the Suicide Squad, Peacemaker wants to try and do normal superhero stuff for a change. Unfortunately everyone, including the bad guys, thinks he sucks at superhero stuff. But when busting up a terrorist ring introduces Christopher Smith to the cutest thing to ever walk (awkwardly) on four legs, he finds the unconditional love he’s been denied his whole life. That is, until the dog is kidnapped right out from under him by a super-villain who has some very un-super-heroic plans for Peacemaker’s brand of ultraviolence. Will he help an infamously unstable super-powered criminal steal the world’s most valuable – and dangerous – DNA? Honestly, Christopher’s pretty lonely, so it probably just depends on how nicely they ask…
Breakout writer Kyle Starks (I Hate This Place, Six Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton) and art legend Steve Pugh (Preacher Special: Saint of Killers, Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass) deliver a brutal and hilarious take on DC’s biggest P.O.S. that will bust guts, break bones, and melt hearts!

BLACK CAT SOCIAL CLUB TP
(W) Christopher Painter (A/CA) Bob Quinn
The story of three punk rock witches, Alice, Hazel, and Maggie, who cast spells with their songs to battle corporate demon jerks, defeat rival witch bands, save the world, and get to the next gig.
Black Cat Social Club have been at this “band thing” for quite a while, with limited success. (Bummer.)
Despite their kick-ass punk rock skills (and a little songcasting magic), these witchy women have been struggling to reach their big break.
Discouraged, bassist Hazel sells her soul to a demon for more magical power, prompting singer/lead guitarist Alice to step in and assume the debt herself!
Plus side, the band is killing it at their shows now. Downside? They may literally be killing the entire world by fueling these corporate demons’ evil plans, which for sure involve brimstone, monsters… you know, the works!
Can the band stop the apocalypse? Is drummer Maggie’s songwriting, uh, “technique” the key? Will the demon Stan ever shut up?! If you’ve ever wished Josie and the Pussycats had more demons, or Buffy was fronting a three-piece rock band, you’ve found your next favorite book in Black Cat Social Club!
