BATMAN: THREE JOKERS #1 arrives next Wednesday, and it’s the biggest thing you’re gonna read this year — the official follow-up to THE KILLING JOKE!

Third Eye Faithful, one of the most iconic BATMAN stories of all-time is BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE, which has set the tone for what we know of THE JOKER for decades, and now, comics legend GEOFF JOHNS is teaming with the superstar artistry of JASON FABOK to deliver a story that follows up on that, much in the same way DOOMSDAY CLOCK followed up and reintroduced the world of WATCHMEN a couple of years ago.

And…. we cannot wait. Like, seriously, this is the comic we’re most stoked for.

This book is a true masterpiece, and we’re telling you now: you’re gonna want to get yours on release day this new comic Wednesday!

Thirty years after Batman: The Killing Joke changed comics forever, Three Jokers reexamines the myth of who, or what, The Joker is and what is at the heart of his eternal battle with Batman. New York Times bestselling writer Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok, the writer/artist team that waged the “Darkseid War” in the pages of Justice League, reunite to tell the ultimate story of Batman and The Joker!

After years of anticipation starting in DC Universe: Rebirth #1, the epic miniseries you’ve been waiting for is here: find out why there are three Jokers, and what that means for the Dark Knight and the Clown Prince of Crime.

It’s a mystery unlike any Batman has ever faced!

MEGA-MAN: FULLY CHARGED #1 BRINGS THE ICONIC CHARACTER BACK TO COMICS IN A NEW SERIES FROM BOOM STUDIOS (POWER RANGERS, SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, FIREFLY) AND IT RULES!

BOOM is on fire, and they keep on delivering the good stuff with hits like SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, ONCE & FUTURE & SEVEN SECRETS.

But: make no mistake – BOOM is also always on point with their incredible licensed works, ranging from FIREFLY and BUFFY to POWER RANGERS and beyond — and their latest licensed work: MEGA MAN FULLY CHARGED is the best darn MEGA MAN comic we’ve seen in a minute!

It’s a new beginning for the worldwide culture phenomenon featuring heroes like Mega Man, Rush and Dr. Light trying to save Silicon City from the villainous forces of the Robot Masters, set in the world of the Mega Man: Fully Charged TV series.


After Mega Man’s father Dr. Light is kidnapped, a shocking truth rocks Mega Man’s world as it seems the Robot Masters know more about his secret history than he does.

When Mega Man’s forgotten memories of the brutal human/robot war are triggered, our hero is left to question just who he is and if he can trust anything or anyone-including the man he calls father.

Don’t miss a perfect jumping on point for long time fans and new readers as A.J. Marchisello & Marcus Rinehart, with artist Stefano Simeone examine the cost of being a hero, and what it truly means to be human.

JOKER WAR explodes in three big tie-ins this week with BATGIRL #48, RED HOOD OUTLAW #48, & DETECTIVE COMICS #1026!

We’ve got not just one, not just two, but THREE giant JOKER WAR tie-ins coming this week, and we could not be more stoked!

First, in BATGIRL #48, Spinning out of the catastrophic history of the Gordon family, Babs is forced to relive the most traumatic events of her life. James Gordon Jr. is back, and he’s on a mission to run the Gordons out of Gotham City-and as we all know, anything involving James Jr. is bad news for Babs and the commissioner. But is her brother capable of tormenting his family on his own? Or has he teamed up with a certain Clown Prince of Crime?

And, then in RED HOOD OUTLAW #48, in the aftermath of the war between Batman and The Joker, Jason Todd has a few decisions to make. Does Gotham City-or the world at large-really need the Red Hood? If Jason contemplates retiring the Red Hood mask altogether, what does that mean for Artemis and Bizarro? Can the Outlaws continue to exist without their leader? A very special member of the Bat-Family helps spell things out for Jason…in a way no one could have expected!

And, then finally, in DETECTIVE COMICS #1026, as “The Joker War” rages on, the casualties are mounting, and the underground residents of Gotham City must deal with the devastating effects of the Joker toxin that’s been pumped into the old city’s tunnel system. Batman must risk everything to guide them to safety, but a familiar face has mobilized these forgotten souls to rise up in anger…and Killer Croc takes no prisoners!

Wanna catch up on JOKER WAR? We’ve got all the tie-ins, and main chapters in stock to get you current!

Indie classic, BERLIN, arrives in full, in the all new BERLIN COMPLETE EDITION TP! A comics classic!

For twenty years, Jason Lutes toiled on this intimate, sweeping epic before the collected Berlin was published in 2018 to widespread acclaim.

Lutes’s historical fiction about the decline of the Weimar Republic and the rise of fascism is seen through the eyes of the Jews and the Nazis; the socialists and the socialites; the lavishly decorated queer clubs and the crumbling tenement apartments.

Lutes weaves these characters’ lives into the larger fabric of a city slowly ripping apart, crafting a polyphonic novel that is rich in its historical detail and as timely as ever in its depiction of a society slowly awakening to the stranglehold of fascism.

SPAWN #309 DELIVERS CHAPTER TWO OF THE NEWEST ARC, CONSEQUENCE OF SIN, AS THE ARMY OF SPAWNS GROWS!

SPAWN has really just continued to get better and better after the epic landmark issue #300, and the new direction that spun out of that, and with last month’s SPAWN #308, there’s a perfect place to jump on board and start reading the series, as a new arc has begun!

The MYSTERIOUS and DANGEROUS army of Spawns continues to grow.

First She-Spawn and Reaper! Then Medieval Spawn!

Now Gunslinger Spawn has made his presence known. But who is a hero and who is a villain?

And is Al Simmons strong enough to control them all? Maybe his new armor will help! TODD McFARLANE and KEN LASHLEY continue their epic tale!

Wanna get on board? We’ve got SPAWN #308 in stock to get you current!
