How can you be worried about next week’s New Comics when our I LOVE YOU BUT I’VE CHOSEN COMICS 25% Off Storewide Sale is going on RIGHT NOW?? --HIGHLY RECOMMENDED-- MISTER MIRACLE COLLECTION The critically acclaimed 12-issue mini-series is collected. Scott Free is the greatest escape artist who ever lived. So great that he escaped Granny Goodness' gruesome orphanage and the dangers of Apokolips to travel across galaxies and set up a new life on Earth with his wife, the former Female Fury known as Big Barda. Using the stage alter ego of Mister Miracle, he has made a career for himself showing off his acrobatic escape techniques. He even caught the attention of the Justice League, which counted him among its ranks. You might say Scott Free has everything...so why isn't it enough? Mister Miracle has mastered every illusion, achieved every stunt, pulled off every trick-except one. He has never escaped death. Is it even possible? Our hero is going to have to kill himself if he wants to find out. KID GLOVES NINE MONTHS OF CAREFUL CHAOS If you work hard enough, if you want it enough, if you're smart and talented and "good enough," you can do anything. Except get pregnant.

Fertility problems were followed by miscarriages, and her eventual successful pregnancy was plagued by health issues, up to a dramatic, near-death experience in labor and delivery. Kid Gloves follows Lucy's personal transition into motherhood, and it also illustrates the history and science of reproductive health from all angles, full of curious facts and inspiring (and notorious) figures in medicine and midwifery. --NEW TITLES OF NOTE-- WONDER TWINS #1 Exiled from their home planet, alien heroes Zan and Jayna must navigate life as teens on Earth at South Metropolis High School, where they're even bigger outsiders than the typical awkward young adults.
