Star Wars: RISE OF KYLO REN arrives in trade paperback, delivering one of the best Star Wars comics of the Marvel era — and, the official origin of KYLO REN!

One of the best damn SW comics of the MARVEL era came out last year with RISE OF KYLO REN, and now you can read the whole thing in trade paperback!

With Ben Solo’s fall comes Kylo Ren’s rise! As the son of Rebel Alliance heroes Leia Organa and Han Solo, and Jedi Master Luke Skywalker’s nephew and protégé, Ben Solo has the potential to be a great force for light in the galaxy.

But the Skywalker legacy casts a long shadow, the currents of the dark side run deep and Ben has Darth Vader’s blood in his veins. Voices from both his past and future tell him who he must be.

He will shatter, he will be reforged and his destiny will be revealed. Snoke awaits. The Knights of Ren await. Ben Solo’s path to his true self begins here. Collecting STAR WARS: RISE OF KYLO REN #1-4.

SPAWN #308 kicks off a new story arc with CONSEQUENCE OF SIN Chapter 1, along with the arrival of superstar artist KEN LASHLEY, and — the first appearance of an all new character!

SPAWN has quickly been climbing as one of the best monthly superhero books around, and Todd is really turning up the heat on making this one of the best monthly books going.

With the addition of new artist, Ken Lashley, we’re stoked for this new arc, which is going to be a great spot for those of you not reading SPAWN to jump on board!

TODD McFARLANE and KEN LASHLEY continue to expand the SPAWN Universe. With the future in doubt and Medieval Spawn’s legacy in question, Spawn, She-Spawn, and Reaper go on the offensive.

But a long-time ally has shown his true colors, and Cogliostro rallies an army and a deadly new recruit…GUNSLINGER SPAWN.

Make sure you scoop the COVER B & COVER C for SPAWN #308, featuring killer covers by Ken Lashley & Francesco Mattina!

Image’s HEDRA delivers a must-have one-shot for fans of the legendary MOEBIUS!

We saw an early glimpse at this one, and were so blown away, we knew we had to shout it out in a big way!

First off: we’re all huge fans of stuff like MOEBIUS, the 2000s revival of PROPHET, and more — so, the stylistic art really caught our eye, but in addition, the story sounds crazy good!

 In a glorious exploration of the comics medium with echoes of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Flash Gordon, Chris Ware, and Moebius, a lone astronaut leaves a world ravaged by nuclear war in search of life.

What she finds is beyond all explanation.

EMPYRE: SAVAGE AVENGERS #1 delivers the first issue of a killer 3-parter, featuring SAVAGE AVENGERS writer GERRY DUGGAN and the incredible GREG SMALLWOOD on art!

This book is GOOD. Seriously: the EMPYRE stuff has been pretty darn awesome, but this issue really stood out as a great read, and the art from Smallwood was off-the-chain cool!

In South America, Conan finds himself enslaved – which is typically bad news for those attempting to do the enslaving!

But these enslavers come from beyond the stars, and they’ve got a singular and grisly end in store for the Cimmerian – one that only Venom can help him avoid!

CAPTAIN MARVEL #18 features a crucial EMPYRE tie-in, as Carol Danvers takes her new role as the THE SUPREME ACCUSER!

Empyre keeps on throwing some exciting curveballs our way, and one of the coolest moments was in last weeks EMPYRE #2, where Carol Danvers replaced RONAN as the new ACCUSER!

Now, CAPTAIN MARVEL IS THE SUPREME ACCUSER!

In the throes of war, Carol finds herself with a bold new role – and a brand-new weapon – the Universal Weapon, in fact.

When a Kree soldier bombs a unified city of the Empire, Emperor Hulkling sends his new Accuser to bring down the swift and necessary hammer of justice.

But what at first seems like a relatively simple directive will end up challenging Carol on a personal level she had never imagined.

CRIMINAL, FATALE, & KILL OR BE KILLED DREAM TEAM Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips REUNITE WITH AN ALL NEW graphic novel in PULP!

Get a FREE PULP BOOKPLATE signed by Brubaker & Phillips, with purchase of the PULP Hardcover, while supplies last!

A gorgeous original graphic novel from the bestselling creators of KILL OR BE KILLED, MY HEROES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN JUNKIES, and CRIMINAL. 

Max Winters, a pulp writer in 1930s New York, finds himself drawn into a story not unlike the tales he churns out at five cents a word-tales of a Wild West outlaw dispensing justice with a six-gun. But will Max be able to do the same when pursued by bank robbers, Nazi spies, and enemies from his past? 

One part thriller, one part meditation on a life of violence, PULP is unlike anything award-winning BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS have ever done before. This celebration of pulp fiction set in a world on the brink is another must-have hardcover from one of comics’ most acclaimed teams.
