Marvel’s huge SUMMER event EMPYRE kicks off with EMPYRE #1, bringing a fresh new take on so many iconic parts of Marvel history — and introducing some eerie new aspects, courtesy of IMMORTAL HULK writer AL EWING!

We’ve been so hyped for EMPYRE, and the fact that one of our favorites, AL EWING, of IMMORTAL HULK fame, is writing it — has us even more pumped!

Mining the rich history of Bronze Age Marvel, and taking ideas from stories that stand up as true Marvel classics yet not as widely read as hits like the INFINITY GAUNTLET, and SECRET WARS — we’re talking AVENGERS KREE-SKRULL WAR, CELESTIAL MADONNA, and more — EMPYRE takes us into a storyline that celebrates everything that makes the Marvel Universe big and wonderful, and we love it!

The Kree and the Skrulls have united under a new emperor – and their war fleet is on a collision course for our world. On the moon, the Avengers are ready to strike with the full power of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Approaching from outer space, the Fantastic Four are seeking a diplomatic solution. If the two teams can’t work together to save the day, things can only get worse…

Wanna get on board? We’ve got issue 0 in stock to catch you up, along with all the preludes that’ve come out so far!

The FEMME FATALES of DYNAMITE unite in the all new SACRED SIX #1, featuring DRACULINA, PANTHA, NYX, CHASTITY, VAMPIRELLA & MORE from comics legend Christopher Priest (BLACK PANTHER)

We’ve loved what Dynamite has done with books like VAMPIRELLA, RED SONJA, CHASTITY, and more, and we’re super amped to see what they’ve got on the way with their new super-team, SACRED SIX, featuring some of the most hard-hitting femme fatales in the Dynamite universe!

Four women are lured to rural Georgia as part of a mysterious scheme to defend an impoverished farming town which finds itself under siege by zealots.  

But this isn’t just any impoverished farming town, and these aren’t just any four women.  

The all-new Draculina, Pantha, Nyx, and Chastity have been brought together in Ashthorne in an effort to avert all-out war against nearby Sacred, Georgia.  

But Ashthorne has a deadly secret, Sacred has a deadly purpose, and lurking in the shadows is Lilith, the immortal sorceress and mother to Vampirella.

FAITHLESS artist MARIA LLOVET delivers a must-read new graphic novel, with LOUD! Find out why MARIA LLOVET is one of our favorite new artists today!

The LOUD nightclub. A latecomer stripper, a pissed waitress, a hitmen couple, a suspension bondage performer, a pregnant teenager, a clan of vampires, a divorcing middle-aged woman, a sadistic dominatrix, and many other souls in search of love, drugs, and blood converge at the hottest club in town on a night that none will ever forget. If they survive.


We’re loving what comic superstar Jonathan Hickman has been doing with his work on the X-MEN books, and his GIANT-SIZE one-shots, and this week’s MAGNETO is a must-read!

Jonathan Hickman continues his one-shots showcasing some of Marvel’s best artists! This time, he teams with Ben Oliver (ULTIMATE X-MEN, THUNDERBOLTS) to bring a tale of Krakoan Ambassador and Master of Magnetism, Magneto!

Krakoa may be only for mutants, but mutants still need to deal with the human world around them. Magneto has a plan for that.

Vault Comics debuts its biggest release yet: ENGINEWARD #1 — pure steampunk by way of dystopian sci-fi with a little bit of Neil Gaiman thrown in!

We’re so stoked about the arrival of ENGINEWARD from VAULT COMICS this week, which channels a unique blend of dystopian post-apocalyptic sci-fi with steampunk aesthetic, and otherworldly Neil Gaiman-esque fantasy.

In ENGINEWARD, Earth is an ancient myth, long forgotten. Now, the word of the god-like Celestials is absolute, and they rule with brutal efficiency.

When Joss, an Engineward, discovers and reactivates the head of an ancient ghoulem, she finds all is not as intended. Her destiny-and that of her world-lies somewhere far beyond the borders of her shantytown.

We’re LOVING everything about the JOKER WAR event, and we’re so darn pumped about what’s coming next in this weeks NIGHTWING #72, as the Joker’s newest partner-in-crime, PUNCHLINE, comes after NIGHTWING!

Dick Grayson has learned the truth: that “fixing” his identity lies with none other than Barbara Gordon. He must go to Gotham to find Batgirl-and runs into The Joker’s new henchperson, Punchline.

Unlike Harley Quinn, Punchline’s deadpan black humor matches the deadly knives she uses on her victims…and for her next joke, Ric Grayson is the punchline.

Wanna get caught up on JOKER WAR? We’ve got all the tie-ins in stock to get you current so far, including the 1st two NIGHTWING tie-ins – 70 & 71!

SAVAGE DRAGON #250 delivers the iconic 250th issue of one of the longest-running independent superhero comics on the stands — and one of comics most consistently quality reads!

OK, listen – if you’ve never read Erik Larsen’s SAVAGE DRAGON, you’re seriously missing out on one of the best kept secrets in comics.

Somewhere around the 2nd or 3rd year of the series, way back in the ’90s, things got wild — we’re talking the Savage Dragon getting pooped out by a giant monster, we’re talking the Savage Dragon fighting the Big Guy upstairs, we’re talking all sorts of crazy ultra-violent Savage Dragon dismemberments; look it’s a blast, and has been for quite some time.

Now, we’re getting the iconic 250th issue, and it’s a great place to pick the book up and give it a shot!

For 28 years, ERIK LARSEN has chronicled the lives and times of the Dragon and his extended family in one of comics’ only series set in real time. This monumental oversized milestone issue is a sweeping culmination that sets the stage for the next phase of comics’ most uncompromising series with its most shocking story yet! Forces have conspired against Malcolm Dragon and his family-but is this a turning point or…THE END?!

Find out as SAVAGE DRAGON becomes the second original Image title to reach its 250th issue and begins the countdown to #300!

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #44 leads into the huge upcoming SINS RISING storyline featuring the return of the iconic Bronze Age Spidey villain: THE SIN EATER!

The SIN-EATER is one of the coolest of the Spidey rogues — and with his roots in the origins of Eddie Brock VENOM — we know his return has something big to do with the world of Spidey (and possibly Eddie!)

Kindred has big plans with the Sin-Eater, and none of it looks good for Spider-Man.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is going to explode this summer, and this is where we light the fuse.
