For fans of Undiscovered Country and Little Bird comes a new adventure series from award-winning author Victor LaValle (Victor LaValle’s Destroyer) and rising-star artist Jo Mi-Gyeong (Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal) about a dangerous journey across a future dystopian America to save the world.

When the ice caps melted, most of humanity was lost to the hidden disease that was released.

Now, a mysterious girl named Eve has awoken in secret and must deal with a world that’s nothing like the virtual reality she was raised in.

HEROES REBORN #1 kicks off a must-read new Marvel event from THOR GOD OF THUNDER, WAR OF THE REALMS & AVENGERS writer JASON AARON and AVENGERS & RED HULK artist ED MCGUINNESS! Do NOT miss out on this must-read re-introduction of the SQUADRON SUPREME, and more!

Third Eye Faithful: we’re telling you right now, HEROES REBORN is going to be a Marvel event story that really takes you by surprise: TRUST US!

While the re-introduction of the SQUADRON SUPREME is pretty rad, and the whole HOUSE OF M-esque re-invention of the MARVEL UNIVERSE with a different twist, is pretty huge…. there’s an even bigger twist to the whole thing that’s going to leave your jaws on the floor!

Welcome to a world where Tony Stark never built an Iron Man armor. Where Thor is a hard-drinking atheist who despises hammers.

Where Wakanda is dismissed as a myth. And where Captain America was never found in the ice because there were no Avengers to find him.

Instead this world has always been protected by Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, the Squadron Supreme of America.

And now the Squadron faces an attack from some of their fiercest enemies, like Dr. Juggernaut, the Black Skull, the Silver Witch and Thanos with his Infinity Rings.

But why is the Daywalker Blade the one man alive who seems to remember that the entire world has somehow been…reborn?

Can even the World’s Greatest Detective escape this trap when time itself resets every twenty-two minutes?

And will the presence of someone else from Gotham City – a familiar feline fatale – help or hinder his efforts…especially when they don’t remember each other?

In another life, they were enemies, friends, partners…but here on the Island, can they do anything but battle to the death?

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.

MARJORIE FINNEGAN: TEMPORAL CRIMINAL #1 delivers the next hit series from Garth Ennis, legendary writer of THE BOYS & PREACHER!

We’re long-time, huge Ennis fans, Third Eye Faithful, and are totally stoked to dig into the latest and greatest from the legendary creator who brought us THE BOYS, PREACHER, and so much more!

She’s Marjorie Finnegan. She’s a temporal criminal. What more do you need to know?

Oh, all right then: all Marj wants to do is race up and down the time-lanes, stealing every shiny-gleamy-pretty-sparkly she can lay her hands on.

But her larcenous trail from the Big Bang to the Ninety-fifth Reich has drawn the beady eye of the Temporal PD, whose number one Deputy Marshall is now hard on our heroine’s tail – and taking things extremely personally.

Worse still, Marj’s worthless creep of an ex and his even scummier partner
have seen an angle of their own in all this, and now intend to use her time-tech to change history for their own benefit.

Marj’s only ally? A guy called Tim. And he’s just a head. I mean come on, what use is just a head…?!

THE 3RD ISSUE OF THE RED HOT NEW BAD IDEA! SERIES ENIAC DROPS THIS WEDNESDAY!

Seventy-seven years ago, the United States unlocked the key to defeating the Axis powers, but, in their desperation to end the war, accidentally created a far more powerful threat: ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer).

Designed to be a cutting-edge breakthrough in supercomputing that could deliver a decisive victory to the Allies, ENIAC did just that…by ordering the bombing Nagasaki without human consent or approval.

A fully autonomous A.I free from the bounds of programming or morality, ENIAC spent the decades since manipulating global superpowers from the shadows, secretly shaping everything we thought we knew about the history of the geopolitical order.

And, throughout it all, one classified question has plagued presidents and prime ministers, generals and spymasters alike: “What is ENIAC planning next?”

Now, after years of silence, ENIAC has re-emerged with a 72-hour countdown until it unleashes every weapon in Earth’s atomic arsenal. Its motives?

Unknowable to humankind. Its endgame?

Destruction on an unthinkable scale.

As ENIAC’s clock rockets toward zero, it’s down to two covert operatives to infiltrate a Russian black site and free the one man alive who knows how to kill the machine…before it erases mankind, once and for all.

BAD IDEA delivers a must-read one-shot with WHALESVILLE x ROCKS AND MINERALS #1!

First, from the limitless imaginations of New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (River Run), virtuoso artist Adam Pollina (Pyrate Queen), and Eisner Award-winning colorist Matt Hollingsworth (Whalesville…duh) comes a very special whale tale for all ages (and species) in the tradition of Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli and Pixar!

When young Wawae – the seaborn son of a whaling captain – is knocked overboard and swallowed by an enormous whale, he discovers the town of “Whalesville” – a colorful, cobbled-together village inhabited by all the astounding sea creatures that live in the belly of the beast.

A crab named Caleb, an angler fish called Angela, and a seadragon that prefers to go by Lilly.

But, to Wawae’s new friends, Whalesville isn’t just their home, it’s their whole world – they don’t realize they live inside of a whale — and they can’t fathom that Wawae’s father will stop at nothing to destroy the creature that stole his son!

To rescue his new friends and save Whalesville, Wawae will have to convince them of the truth and escape the whale…before his own father sends them sinking into the murky depths forever.

Then, Matt Kindt’s highly developed brain musculature joins forces with multiple Eisner Award-winning living legend, Tony Millionaire, and the color stylings of

James Campbell, for a tale of friendship and adventure in the far future. In the time after the Great Polishing, organic life is no more. Earth is ruled by highly evolved rubble, rocks and minerals.

They walk. They talk. They are free. But their age is just beginning and the world is still a largely unknown and very scary place.

When the Rock Queen’s daughter and her two best friends venture into the forbidden unpolished zone, they find the world mankind left behind and meet what they think is a very quiet new green rock. To their surprise it sprouts a head, four legs and a very loud voice.

This is no rock. This is Elpis the turtle, and she needs help getting back to her pond in time to lay her eggs. But what is a pond? For that matter, what’s a turtle?

The three friends must venture further into the unknown to help Elpis to unravel a secret the Queen herself has fought to keep from her people. A tale of high adventure in the second stone age!
