Such as BY NIGHT #2, BATMAN #51, CURSE WORDS VOL 03, AVENGERS #5, MAGIC ORDER #2, JUSTICE LEAGUE #4, BUFFY SEASON 12 THE RECKONING #2 and MS MARVEL VOL 09.

It’s a battle for the ages! The 2 most iconic (and we don’t Peyton Royce and Billie Kay) heroes from the two biggest comic book publishers, face off with brand new #1’s! AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 by Nick Spencer and Ryan Ottley and SUPERMAN #1 by Brian Michael Bendis and Ivan Reis. Which icon will reign supreme? Also this week… FARMHAND #1 From ROB GUILLORY, Eisner-winning co-creator and artist of Image Comics' CHEW, comes a new dark comedy about science gone sinister and agriculture gone apocalyptic. Jedidiah Jenkins is a farmer that grows fast-healing, plug-and-play human organs. Lose a finger? Need a new liver? He's got you covered. Unfortunately, strange produce isn't the only thing Jed's got buried. Deep in the soil of the Jenkins Family Farm, something dark has taken root, and it's beginning to bloom. LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN: TEMPEST #1 The FINAL Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neil LOEG volume. Opening simultaneously in the panic-stricken headquarters of British Military Intelligence, the fabled Ayesha's lost African city of Kor and the domed citadel of 'We' on the devastated Earth of the year 2996, the dense and yet furiously-paced narrative hurtles like an express locomotive across the fictional globe. This is literally, and literarily, the story to end all stories. Here's how it begins. X-23 #1 It's the ALL-NEW WOLVERINE, just not called that anymore. Same cast, same artist, new #1. Plus, Mariko Tamaki writing. We think it's gonna be a lot of fun.

RUINWORLD #1 An all-ages comic about fun, friendship and screaming in the face of danger. Intrepid adventurers Pogo and Rex are on a quest for fame and fortune. Their discovery of a special map leads them on an epic journey through dangers, demons and old enemies. Just one problem-they've already lost the map. RELAY #1 Every newly discovered planet is unified culturally through a monolithic structure known as the Galactic Relay. Although the towering monument is meant to inspire conformity of ideas, technology, and progress - many resent the foreign structure. Jad Carter, a Relay employee, must keep the peace and act as an emissary to new civilizations. But when he finds the Relay's mythological creator, Hank Donaldson, his idea of reality and the universe shatters. SHE COULD FLY #1 In Chicago, an unknown woman appears flying at speeds of 120 miles per hour and at heights reaching 2,000 feet. Then she suddenly dies in a fiery explosion mid-air. No one knows who she was, how she flew, or why. Luna, a disturbed 15-year-old girl becomes obsessed with learning everything about her while rumors and conspiracy theories roil. TRANSFORMERS UNICRON #1 The end is nigh! The Darkest Hour has come. Optimus Prime stages a desperate gamble as the world-eater, Unicron, approaches Windblade's homeworld-but that's just the appetizer. The main course is Cybertron (with a side of Earth)... and it's starting to look like no force in the galaxy can stop the end from coming. Be a part of history!
