ALMIGHTY #1 - THE WARNING writer/artist EDWARD LAROCHE returns to comics with a five-issue epic! Max Max: Fury Road-style action combines with the mutated horror of Annihilation in this original sci-fi/fantasy epic for mature readers.

A girl has been abducted, and a killer has been hired to find her and bring her home. The adventure begins in a spectacular DOUBLE-LENGTH FIRST ISSUE, with thirty-eight pages of story and no ads for the regular price of just $3.99!

WHERE MONSTERS LIE #1 - Haven't you always wondered what slasher monsters-the masked home invasion family, the mindless unkillable monster, the serial killer trapped in a doll-what they do for those couple of years in-between their murder sprees? They're at Wilmhurst-a gated community in the middle of nowhere where they relax-or try to-until they get the call to go out and kill again. Connor Hayes survived his first slasher in summer camp. A handful of years later he barely escaped a psychopath who built torture puzzles for his victims. Since then he's been training and planning for running into these creatures again. He's a respected special agent, and now he knows where the monsters lie and he's planning for war.

BATMAN LEGENDS OF GOTHAM #1 - With Batman preoccupied, his deepest, darkest, most dangerous secrets are about to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. The guest list is strictly villains only, and the outlaw Red Hood fits the bill--putting him on a collision course with Batman's deniable black-ops team, the Outsiders! With Lazarus Island spawning wild-card superpowers across the globe, the stakes could not be higher. Jason Todd, Black Lightning, and Katana will have to put aside their differences to save Batman's legacy--and with it, the world. That's assuming they don't kill each other first!

BLACK TAPE #1 - Jack King was a rock'n'roll god who projected a stage
persona on par with the devil. After Jack dies on stage, his widow, Cindy, grapples with grief and struggles to protect his
legacy, unaware that she is being surrounded by dark forces that covet the master tapes to Jack's final,
unreleased album - a heavy metal masterpiece that just
might open a doorway to hell.

BLOOD TREE #1 - Two obsessed NYPD detectives hunt for a vicious butcher called the Angel Killer, a sociopath who preys on the innocent family members of known murderers in order to "purify" the rest of society. From comics super team PETER J. TOMASI (Batman and Robin, Superman, Black Adam: The Dark Age, Super-Sons, Detective Comics) and MAXIM ŠIMI? (Escape from New York, Conan) comes a story that confronts the battle of nature versus nurture, considers how present and future generations are tainted by past generations, and asks the age-old question: Who must pay for the sins of the fathers-and perhaps even the sins of the mothers?

BLOODLINE DAUGHTER OF BLADE #1 - IT'S IN HER BLOOD?
