BIRDS OF PREY #1
(W) Kelly Thompson (A/CA) Leonardo Romero (VCA) Stanley Artgerm Lau, Chris Bachalo, Frank Cho
Every mission matters. Every life saved is a miracle. But this time, it’s personal.
Dinah Lance is one of the DCU’s most elite fighters, and combined with her sonic scream, she’s a fearsome foe in any scenario… but sometimes even the Black Canary needs help. Faced with a personal mission brought to her by a mysterious new ally, and up against near-impossible odds, she re-forms the Birds of Prey with an unrivaled group of badasses – Cassandra Cain, Big Barda, Zealot, and Harley Quinn – and only one goal: extraction without bloodshed.
What could possibly go wrong?
Kelly Thompson (Captain Marvel, Black Widow) makes her long-awaited DC Universe writing debut, and is joined by her Hawkeye partners-in-crime Leonardo Romero (Batman) and Jordie Bellaire (Wonder Woman) to debut an all-new, all-deadly Birds of Prey series… still breaking hearts and faces after all these years!
BLUE BEETLE #1
(W) Josh Trujillo (A/CA) Adrian Gutierrez
Jaime Reyes’s graduation is over, but his new life in Palmera City and as the Blue Beetle has only just begun!
With two new Beetles to train in Dynastes and Nitida, Jaime has his hands full navigating being a leader.
Thankfully, he has Paco and Brenda by his side as they settle in at Palmera State University.
But what lurks in the shadows of Blue Beetle’s new home and what does it mean for the Blue Beetle legacy?
KILL YOUR DARLINGS #1
(W) Ethan S. Parker, Griffin Sheridan (A) John J. Hill (A/CA) Bob Quinn (VCA) Ryan Stegman
Eight-year-old Rose loves nothing more than to play pretend in a magical land of her own creation. To her, that world is as real as our own, from her fluffy friends to the terrible evil that lurks at the center of it all. In one night, the line between fantasy and reality will disappear, an ancient hunger will feed again, and Rose will be pulled into a gruesome saga that began centuries before her birth.
A new epic begins from debut writers ETHAN S. PARKER and GRIFFIN SHERIDAN, and superstar art team BOB QUINN (Knights of X) and JOHN J. HILL (VANISH)!
CRUSADER #1 (OF 4)
(W/A) Matt Emmons (CA) Michael Walsh
A Templar Knight finds himself transported to a dangerous realm known as the Beastlands.
With sinister entities known as The Masters hunting him down, all he has is his sword and a weird, goblin-like creature named Grimbel to guide him through this strange new world.
Speaking about the series, writer/artist Matt Emmons said “I’ve been trying to capture the feeling of a pulpy, fun adventure story that embodies everything I’ve loved about the genre, and I hope it translates. I’ve also been wanting to draw Pilgrim in action for years, so it’s very exciting to finally bring him to the page. Crusader has been a fun challenge!”
HUNT FOR THE SKINWALKER #1 (OF 4)
(W) Zac Thompson (A) Valeria Burzo (CA) Martin Simmonds
Unidentified flying objects. Animal mutilation. Terrifying otherworldly cryptids. Countless strange phenomena. For more than 50 years, a remote ranch in the Uinta Basin has been the most significant nexus for the paranormal. Inspired by one family’s confrontation with the unexplainable and terrifying… and what happened when they invited the largest scientific investigation of the paranormal to their ranch.
Based on the 2005 groundbreaking, electrifying nonfiction book by Dr. Colm Kelleher and veteran investigative journalist George Knapp that revealed the captivating true history of Gorman Ranch for the first time, seizing mainstream imagination and inspiring documentaries, investigations, and genre fiction in various media.
Now, working hand-in-hand with Kelleher and Knapp, and incorporating never-before-seen new revelations, writer Zac Thompson (X-Men Unlimited, Undone By Blood) with Valeria Burzo (Castle Full of Blackbirds) adapts the category-defying tale in a series perfect for fans of I Hate This Place and The Low, Low Woods!
TEAR US APART #1
(W) Jay Baruchel (A/CA) Alessandro Micelli
Deep in the Canadian wilderness, a vicious cult, dedicated to an ideology of pain, trains children to become deadly assassins.
In the midst of this world of cruelty, two teenagers break the cardinal rule-by falling in love.
The only thing standing between them and happily ever after is an army of murderers with a taste for blood.
From legendary actor Jay Baruschel (How to Train Your Dragon, This is the End)!
FIRE & ICE WELCOME TO SMALLVILLE #1 (OF 6)
(W) Joanne Starer (A) Natacha Bustos (CA) Terry Dodson (VCA) Jen Bartel
Things could not possibly be worse for Fire and Ice, in Beatriz da Costa’s professional opinion. Superman sent the former Justice Leaguers packing for Smallville following an extremely public and utterly disastrous mission (that was all Guy Gardner’s fault, thank you very much) and in doing so doomed them to a fate worse than death: irrelevance. Ice finds herself drawn to the quiet life and dreams of planting roots. But Fire… well, Fire will do just about anything to get the heck outta Dodge and back on the hero circuit – including challenging the DCU’s biggest villains to a knock-down, drag-out, live-streamed brawl in the streets of Smallville!
A raucous, timely, unflinching comedy about a decades-long friendship on the brink of disaster and what it means to be a superhero at a crossroads in your life, Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville reintroduces the iconic duo to the Dawn of DC, in a series from rising star Joanne Starer (The Gimmick, Sirens of the City) and Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur co-creator Natacha Bustos!

(W) Eiichi Shimizu, Tomohiro Shimoguchi (A) Eiichi Shimizu, Tomohiro Shimoguchi
Gotham City has been under the protection of Batman for only a short amount of time, but since the vigilante’s appearance, crime has changed. It’s gotten more bold, more destructive.
As Batman tries to rise up to meet these new threats, he develops a computer system, ROBIN, to help him analyze and subdue the rising criminal tide and hopefully one day put an end to crime in Gotham. But will its solution be one Batman can execute?

(W) Satoshi Miyagawa (A/CA) Kai Kitago

Finally Shelley and her little brother/assistant, Iggy, stumble upon a haunted graveyard that gives them an idea for the ultimate monster. Throw in a couple abandoned toy animals, and behold… Cowpiggy! Will this new creation send everyone running in terror, like a proper monster? Or will love and cuteness triumph?
