SENTRY #1

(W) Jason Loo (A) Zagaria, Luigi (CA) Ben Harvey

The Sentry is dead, but ordinary people all over the world are suddenly manifesting his powers and experiencing snippets of Bob Reynolds’ memories.

Will one of them survive long enough to emerge as the new Sentry?

Or will their newfound power destroy them?

When Misty Knight and Jessica Jones cross paths in search of answers, they open an investigation that will change everything you think you know about the Sentry!

Rated T+


THUNDERBOLTS #1

(W) Collin Kelly, Jackson Lanzing (A) Geraldo Borges (CA) Terry Dodson

Bucky Barnes, the Revolution, just inherited a mountain of covert intel, and he has one objective: justice. Like lightning.

He’s going after the establishment, the people no one else is willing or able to take down, and he’ll do whatever it takes to win.

Teaming with the mysterious Contessa Valentina Allegra De Fontaine, Bucky assembles a team of black-ops heavy hitters to pursue high-profile targets like the Red Skull, Kingpin and even Doctor Doom himself.

No one is safe from the Thunderbolts!

Rated T+


INVASIVE #1

(W) Cullen Bunn (A/CA) Jesus Hervás

Beyond excess, beyond ethics, beyond science….

Dr. Carrie Reynolds was a veteran trauma surgeon with a godlike mastery of muscle and bone. But outside the operating room, her rigidly ordered life spiraled into chaos when her daughter, Heather – a recovering plastic surgery addict – suddenly disappeared, only to mysteriously reemerge in a catatonic state, her vocal cords removed… the latest in a series of victims scarred by a battery of brazenly cruel medical procedures that have baffled police and left an alarming number of once-ordinary citizens maimed, mutilated, or dead on arrival.

Deep beneath the streets of Carrie’s city, a new kind of underground hospital has just opened its doors… and, once inside, there are no rules, no oaths, and no taboos too deep to not to be broken.

Together, a new class of surgeon has sworn to pierce the final threshold of accepted medical orthodoxy one incision at a time. The scalpel is their tool. The alleys are their operating theater. Murder is their medicine.

And only Carrie can stop what they’re planning next…


SKEETERS #1 (OF 4)

(W) Kevin Cuffe, Bob Frantz (A) Kelly Williams

Small town hijinks ensue as extraterrestrial mosquitos descend on a sleepy beach town.

When giant mosquito-like alien creatures invade a rural seaside community, a frustrated sheriff and two oddball exterminators end up being the town’s only hope for survival.

A comedic and gruesome story for fans of SlitherArachnophobia, and other classic creature-features!

Skeeters is a love letter to all the wonderfully schlocky creature features I adore,” said co-writer Bob Frantz. “Kevin and I wrote a fun script but the magic is in Kelly’s breathtaking artwork. The gore flies off the page. It’s the perfect marriage.”


BATMAN SANTA CLAUS SILENT KNIGHT #1 (OF 4) 

(W) Jeff Parker (A) Michele Bandini (CA) Dan Mora (VCA) Derrick Chew

SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN!

The four-part crossover event of a generation begins when a not-so-jolly St. Nick hits Gotham City to investigate a brutal crime in the days leading up to Christmas…

What manner of man or beast could have committed such atrocities?!

With the help of his former student, Batman, Santa will team up with the heroes of the DC Universe to right this wrong – or the world wakes up to coal in their stockings!

A brutal, two-fisted holiday tale of hope, wonder, and monster hunting is the perfect treat to ring in the holidays – it’s Claus in canon!


BLOODRIK #1 (OF 3)

(W) Andrew Krahnke (A/CA) Andrew Krahnke

Bloodrik is angry, confused, and starving.

Unable to achieve success in his usual hunting grounds, he stomps his way into unfamiliar woods in an attempt to feed his stomach and heal his ego.

What he finds will lead him on a journey of madness, violence, fire, and BLOOD!

Up-and-coming creative dynamo Andrew Krahnke (Outrunners, Tartarus) kicks off an all-new three issue miniseries.


LEGENDERRY RED SONJA (ONE-SHOT)

(W) Katana Collins (A) Kewber Baal (CA) Sean Murphy

When last we saw the Legenderry world’s version of Red Sonja, she was living the pirate’s life aboard her ship, The Nautilus.

But times have changed!

In this special 40-page one-shot adventure – created exclusively for Red Sonja’s 50th Anniversary – fan-favourite writer KATANA COLLINS weaves a tale of thievery, deception, and a mysterious painting with a decidedly handsome and unaging owner – all set against the steam-powered backdrop of the Legenderry world!

HP LOVECRAFT’S SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH GN

(W) Gou Tanabe (A) Gou Tanabe

In the winter of 1927-28, the isolated coastal settlement of Innsmouth, Massachusetts was assaulted by U.S. government agents, its waterfront burned and dynamited, its people taken away to internment camps. Yet that was neither the beginning nor the end of the horror uncovered by a young antiquarian who traveled to Innsmouth in search of rumors from the town’s dead past, only to find them still very much alive… and find truths lying under water deeper and colder than any earthly grave!

A new manga adaptation of the only H.P. Lovecraft story published as a book during his lifetime, by modern horror master Gou Tanabe!

This book includes a tip-in title page in silver ink and 12 pages in full colour!


RUN AND HIDE HOW JEWISH YOUTH ESCAPED HOLOCAUST GN

(W) Don Brown (A) Don Brown

In the tightening grip of Hitler’s power, towns, cities, and ghettos were emptied of Jews. Unless they could escape, Jewish children would not be spared their deadly fate in the Holocaust, a tragedy of unfathomable depth. Only 11 percent of the Jewish children living in Europe before 1939 survived the Second World War.

Run and Hide tells the stories of these children, forced to leave their homes and families, as they escaped certain horror. Some children flee to England by train. Others are hidden from Nazis, sometimes in plain sight. Some are secreted away in attics and farmhouses. Still others make miraculous escapes, cresting over the snow-covered Pyrenees mountains to safety.


DEADPOOL KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE OMNIBUS SC

(W) Cullen Bunn (A) Salcador Espin & Dalibor Talajic

What if everything you thought was funny about Deadpool… was actually just disturbing?

What if he decided to kill everyone and everything that makes up the Marvel Universe? What if he actually pulled if off? Would that be fun for you?

What if you could see him do it once and then see him do it all again? Well now you can!

Collecting Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe #1-4 & Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe Again #1-5.


SUPERMAN THE HARVESTS OF YOUTH TP

(W) Sina Grace (A) Sina Grace

Clark Kent’s idyllic teen life is wrenched away when the death of a classmate rocks Smallville. As he and his friends grieve, the challenges they face become darker, more complex, and deeply insidious.

For the first time in his life, Clark must grapple with life’s biggest questions, and confront his own mortality (or lack thereof) in order to become the hero his beloved town needs.

Acclaimed GLAAD Media Award-nominated writer and artist Sina Grace (Iceman) tells the deeply moving and quintessential story of teenage Clark Kent and the town that must overcome grief and hate to restore hope.


MARVEL’S ROCKET & GROOT HUNT FOR STAR LORD GN

(W) Amanda Deibert (A) Cam Kendell

Rocket and Groot are living their best lives touring the galaxy for the very best deep-dish pizza in the universe.

Just as Rocket is about to bite down on a gooey slice of pizza with extra trash, an alert pops up on his bounty tracker: Star-Lord has been kidnapped and is being held for ransom! Rocket and Groot immediately drop their ‘za and jump into action. Who would want to capture Peter Quill anyway? Okay… maybe a lot of people. It’s probably best to start with someone who actually likes Peter. Gamora! But when Rocket and Groot locate Gamora, she is in the middle of a battle with Thanos.

Great! One more enemy to deal with!

Join Marvel’s fan-favourites Rocket and Groot in this hilarious, high-octane original graphic novel!
