The world of Blumhouse’s THE CONJURING comes to comics with THE CONJURING: THE LOVER #1, kicking off DC’s new horror imprint!

The terrifying debut of the tie-in to The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It begins here, with a story that’s bursting at the seams with clues about the new film. Meet Jessica.

Jessica just returned to her freshman year of college after winter break, bringing with her the anxieties of last semester’s poor grades, the awkwardness of facing a boy she wishes she’d never slept with, and an undeniably unnerving feeling of being watched.

She soon comes to realize that something evil made her its target, and it will not rest until it has her in its unholy grip.

But why did this sinister presence set its sights on a seemingly normal college freshman? Read this nerve-racking tale, creepily crafted by Conjuring screenwriter David L. Johnson-McGoldrick and Rex Ogle with heart-stopping art from Garry Brown and chill-inducing covers by Bill Sienkiewicz, to find out!

As huge fans of the Conjuring universe that Blumhouse has created, we cannot wait to dive into this one!

SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN & DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH WRITER James Tynion IV debuts his next new horror masterpiece with NICE HOUSE ON THE LAKE #1!!! Make sure to get your copy and get it signed on 6/12/21 by James Tynion IV!

Everyone who was invited to the house knows Walter—well, they know him a little, anyway. Some met him in childhood; some met him months ago.

And Walter’s always been a little…off. But after the hardest year of their lives, nobody was going to turn down Walter’s invitation to an astonishingly beautiful house in the woods, overlooking an enormous sylvan lake.

It’s beautiful, it’s opulent, it’s private—so a week of putting up with Walter’s weird little schemes and nicknames in exchange for the vacation of a lifetime? Why not?

All of them were at that moment in their lives when they could feel themselves pulling away from their other friends; wouldn’t a chance to reconnect be…nice?

With Something Is Killing The Children and The Department of Truth, James Tynion IV has changed the face of horror in modern comics — now get ready for his most ambitious story yet, alongside his Detective Comics partner Álvaro Martínez Bueno!

THE X-MEN HELLFIRE GALA BEGINS THIS WEDNESDAY! GET ON BOARD WITH THE FIRST WAVE OF RELEASES!

This Summer, following hot on the heels of the recently concluded X OF SWORDS, Marvel is serving up a major event with the HELLFIRE GALA, and it’s looking to be one of the coolest things they’ve done with the X-MEN yet!

Kicking off in HELLIONS #12, and then continuing into the pages of MARAUDERS #21, X-FORCE #20, EXCALIBUR #21, X-MEN #21, NEW MUTANTS 319, X-CORP #2, S.W.O.R.D #6, WAY OF X #3, WOLVERINE #13, and X-FACTOR #10!

The entire crossover will be spanning June and July, and then concluding with some of the biggest revelations to hit the world of X-Men in PLANET-SIZED X-MEN #1, which is rumored to have an importance equivalent to the now legendary GIANT-SIZE X-MEN that introduced the most memorable line-up of X-MEN we’ve ever seen!

First in HELLIONS #12, who thought it was a good idea to invite the antisocial HELLIONS to the fanciest bash of the year? Oh, no one?

They weren’t invited but they showed up anyway? Yeah, that sounds about right.

And then in MARAUDERS #21, the Hellfire Trading Company has put together the biggest event of the season – the very first HELLFIRE GALA!

Everyone will be there – all your favorite mutants, their closest allies…even their worst enemies – for a night of dinner, drinks, diplomacy and deceit. Fireworks to follow. Plus: From the archives, a classic X-Men tale with our very first look at a Hellfire Gala by Chris Claremont and John Bolton! 

Finally, rounding out the first week of releases is X-FORCE #20, and it’s party time, but somebody’s got to work it. And when invited guests (and a few crashers) prove to be planted antagonistic agents, X-FORCE will need to get their hands dirty and keep this all under wraps…before anyone catches wind!

Get the full scoop on the HELLFIRE GALA with our THIRD EYE GUIDE TO THE HELLFIRE GALA here!

TANKERS #2 continues the red hot new BAD IDEA COMICS series!!!

The CEO of global energy conglomerate Greenleaf Oil has just discovered a terrifying secret: the planet only has a decade or less of petroleum left before it’s gone forever. But he has a plan to make sure his great-great grandchildren can continue to generate maximum shareholder value – and secure his own legacy in the process. Rather than develop a game-changing renewable energy source through the power of corporate innovation, Greenleaf has perfected the next best thing – time travel (duh) – so that a team of six field-rat contractors armed to the teeth in individually customized mech suits can go back to the Cretaceous Period, tweak the trajectory of the meteor that killed the dinosaurs, and give mankind another 500 millennia worth of oil reserves. What could go wrong? Only all of human history, of course – because when Greenleaf’s team of Tankers come home, they’ll discover that not only did the dinosaurs never die out, they’ve kept evolving for another 60 million years…and they’re more pissed off than ever.

Bone-shredding destruction! Wanton corporate malfeasance! Reckless use of industrial machinery! And lots and lots of ammunition. Like a Saturday morning cartoon that’s run irresponsibly over-budget, New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Justice League), blockbuster artist Juan Jose Ryp (Wolverine), and colorist extraordinaire Andrew Dalhouse (The Multiversity Guidebook) are here to take all of our insecurities about mankind’s most self-destructive impulses and turn them up until the knob snaps off with the second of THREE MEGA-SIZED ISSUES SHIPPING BIMONTHLY (that means every other month, don’t look it up).

Need issue 1? We got copies in stock to hook you up!
