YOU PROMISED ME DARKNESS #1 drops this week, delivering one heck of a big indie hit that blends the dynamics of superhumans with horror elements to much success!

This book is going to be RED HOT! And, we’ve got plenty of copies of all the rad covers for it in stock to hook you up!

Approximately every 75 years, Halley’s Comet orbits around the sun, and every time this happens people around the world are born with incredible abilities, special auras that grant them with supernatural skills, but those auras can also be cursed.

Yuko and Sebastian, two siblings with special auras are constantly running from an evil being, known as the “Anti-everything,” who feeds from these special auras, getting stronger with each intake.

This being is obsessed with these brothers’ auras and will not stop until he feasts on them.

A truly unique must-read reminiscent of dark takes on superheroes like THE BOYS, SUPERGOD, MIDNIGHT NATION, WATCHMEN, and more — do NOT sleep on this!

BATMAN / FORTNITE: ZEROPOINT #1 drops this Wednesday, delivering one of the biggest titles of Summer 2021 – don’t miss this!

OK, c’mon: FORTNITE and DC Comics together? NUFF SAID, right? But seriously, this book is going to be red hot, and for good reason: the concept of the two worlds colliding into one, as well as the anticipation of things like SNAKE-EYES (yes, from GI JOE!), showing up — makes this a no-brainer of a must-buy!

A crack splits the sky above Gotham City… a tear in reality itself. This rift pulls the Dark Knight into a bizarre and unfamiliar world, with no memory of who he is or where he came from…Batman has been drawn into Fortnite! As our hero fights to recall his past and escape an endless loop of chaos and struggle, he’ll come face-to-face with the likes of Renegade Raider, Fishstick, Bandolier, and more. While the world’s greatest detective strives to make sense of this strange new world, he’ll uncover the shocking truth about the Island, what lies beyond the Loop, and how everything is connected to the mysterious Zero Point.

Uncover secrets never before revealed in game or anywhere else! Every fan of Batman, Fortnite, stunning art and edge-of-your-seat excitement won’t want to miss the Caped Crusader facing off against Fortnite champions on the Island, in a desperate attempt to save not only himself, but other familiar faces from the DCU…and perhaps the Multiverse itself!

This will be a bi-weekly miniseries. Each print issue of Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point will include a redeemable code for bonus DC-themed Fortnite digital items, inspired by the events in the comic, starting with the new Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit. Fans who redeem all six codes will also unlock a new Armored Batman Zero Outfit for their Fortnite character.
