SUPERMAN SON OF KAL-EL #1 introduces JONATHAN KENT as the new MAN OF STEEL in an iconic first issue from DCEASED superstar writer Tom Taylor!

Jonathan Kent has experienced a lot in his young life. He’s traveled the galaxies with his Kryptonian grandfather and lived in the future with the Legion of Super-Heroes, who were intent on training him for the day his father, Clark Kent, could no longer be Superman.

There is a hole in the Legion’s history that prevents Jon from knowing exactly when that will happen, but all signs point to it being very soon. It’s time for the son to wear the cape of his father and bear the symbol of hope that has told the world who Superman really is.

Join writer Tom Taylor (Nightwing, DCeased) and artist John Timms (Infinite Frontier) as they usher in a whole new era for the House of El!

UNNATURAL & MERCY creator MIRKA ANDOLFO debuts her next smash IMAGE COMICS hit with SWEET PAPRIKA #1!

Paprika is a successful businesswoman, a New Yorker of Italian origin. Job and career consume her, forcing her to neglect her personal needs as well as her friends and family.

Her heart is broken from a previous relationship and its consequences, and a rigid upbringing has made her a very introverted person. She wants a romantic relationship, but she doesn’t know what she’s doing.

Not like Dill, a na ve and suave delivery boy with an angelic attitude, handsome, and always surrounded by beautiful women falling for him. He doesn’t have a worry in the world, and this makes Paprika very nervous. But he’s the guy who could help her with her feelings (and with… sex).

Bridget Jones’s Diary meets Sex and the City, with a pinch of The Devil Wears Prada in the new international hit by acclaimed creator MIRKA ANDOLFO (UNNATURAL, MERCY).

ICON & ROCKET #1 continues the return of the MILESTONE UNIVERSE this new comic day!

Long ago, the stranded alien known as Arnus gave up hope of returning to his home planet. Tragically, he’d also realized that his adopted home of Earth was beyond saving.

Content to waste away his long life in a human guise, Arnus was past caring…until the day a young woman named Raquel Ervin crashed into his life.

Soon she’d convinced him to put his incredible power to work again as the heroic Icon…and to transform her into his sidekick, Rocket!

But an innocent question on Rocket’s part—Why can’t we do something about the drugs on my corner?—quickly set a chain of events in motion leading to the pair becoming the most hunted beings on Earth…and they’re not just being pursued by Earthlings, either!

Writer, director, and producer Reginald Hudlin (Black Panther: Who Is the Black Panther?) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite unleash a tale of power and responsibility that will stretch from the boardrooms of corporate America to the jungles of South America and the depths of deep space!

If you’ve ever thought there were certain things that a superhero story just couldn’t do, it might be time to start thinking different…

The time has arrived for the Rat King to make his most chaotic and destructive moves yet.

The road to the next big DC UNIVERSE Crisis continues in INFINITE FRONTIER #3 — and the BLACK LANTERNS RETURN!!

If you’re a DCU fan, there’s one book that is a definitive MUST-NOT-MISS and that’s INFINITE FRONTIER!

This killer mini-series is counting down to the next big CRISIS moment for the DCU, and much like the events of modern classics like 52, is laying the foundation of the DCU for years to come!

Barry Allen’s history with the Psycho-Pirate isn’t pleasant. The Flash encountered this mind-bending villain all the way back in the original Crisis on Infinite Earths, and it did not end well for the Scarlet Speedster. For the first time since his death and rebirth, Barry runs afoul of this foe—hopefully it will go better this time around!

That is, if the even bigger villain behind the Pirate stays out of the fray, or if President Superman of Justice Incarnate sticks around to help win the day.

THE BIGGEST INSPIRATION FOR THE UPCOMING SUICIDE SQUAD FILM DROPS WITH SUICIDE SQUAD: TRIAL BY FIRE TPB THIS WEDNESDAY!

One of the best SUICIDE SQUAD tales of all-time, and the inspiration for the upcoming film, returns to print, and trust us: this is a must-read!

The classic story that inspired the feature film! Offered again with a new cover! In the late 1980s, a secret government program designed to neutralize super-powered threats to national security was reactivated.

Task Force X had gone through many transformations since it was first created during World War II, but one thing had never changed: its members called themselves the Suicide Squad, and they lived up to their name.

Faced with a rising tide of metahuman crime and terror, the program’s hard-headed director Amanda Waller sold the President on her vision of an updated Task Force X: a covert action team composed of incarcerated super-villains who earned time off their sentences for every mission they completed.

Deniable, disposable, and deployable to any spot-on Earth, this new Suicide Squad would be the perfect weapon of last resort — as long as they could be kept under control. Contains SUICIDE SQUAD #1-8 and SECRET ORIGINS #14
