One of the biggest DEATH METAL tie-ins yet, SPEED METAL, drops this week, delivering a one-shot that answers many of your questions from the very beginnings of DC REBIRTH, and how they tie into the DARK MULTIVERSE!

Third Eye Faithful, DC has been one of the hottest things going this year, and DEATH METAL continues to impress this week with another massive tie-in that you can’t miss!

In SPEED METAL, mysteries dating back to the pages of the iconic DC REBIRTH one-shot are explored, and show us just how it ties into the bigger picture of what’s going on with the DARK MULTIVERSE!

Featuring a recently transformed Wally West, who now is a host to the powers and spirit of DOCTOR MANHATTAN (yes, THAT Doctor Manhattan, from WATCHMEN and DOOMSDAY CLOCK), and more, it’s the drag race from hell in this one-shot tie-in to Dark Nights: Death Metal!

Taking place after the events of Dark Nights: Death Metal #3, the Darkest Knight is after Wally West and his Dr. Manhattan powers.

Thankfully, Wally has backup in the form of Barry Allen, Jay Garrick, and Wallace West!

It’s a knockdown, drag-out race through the Wastelands as the Flash Family tries to stay steps ahead of the Darkest Knight and his Lightning Knights!

Wanna get caught up? We’ve got all the issues so far of DEATH NIGHTS METAL, along with the assorted one-shots and tie-ins, to get you up to date!

The biggest thing to hit the Marvel U since HOUSE OF X arrives in X OF SWORDS CREATION #1 *XoS Chapter 1* a massive crossover event capturing the same energy as MESSIAH COMPLEX, FATAL ATTRACTIONS and more!

We gotta tell you: the X-MEN comics have been incredible since Hickman’s revival with HOUSE OF X a couple of years back, and this weeks X OF SWORDS takes it to the next level, as we’re given a crossover on the scale of fan-favorites like MESSIAH COMPLEX and FATAL ATTRACTIONS!

The dark history of Arakko will soon be revealed, and when it is, the very future of mutantkind will be at stake.

Now, witness the cataclysmic showdown between the sword bearers of Arakko and the ten mutants who will stand up to defend the new mutant nation of Krakoa in Pepe Larraz’s breathtaking key art for X OF SWORDS.

This fateful clash and many others are what await readers in this crossover epic written by Jonathan Hickman, Tini Howard, and all the current writers of your favorite X-Men titles.

The next chapter in Hickman’s bold reshaping of the X-Men that began in House of X, this story will stand alongside influential X-Men crossovers like The Mutant Massacre and Messiah CompleX.

The victories will be legendary, the losses will be heartbreaking, and the revelations will send shockwaves throughout the Marvel Universe. This sprawling saga will have a lasting impact on the future of the X-Men, forever changing the fate of the franchise’s most prominent characters.

In short: this is going to be a book that both new and old fans of X-MEN alike are going to fall in love with.

Literally: X-MEN + INFINITY GAUNTLET + magic Marvel swords. Seriously: we’re stoked.

BOOM STUDIOS (SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, ONCE & FUTURE and more) delivers a killer new series that’s reminiscent of ’90s cult fav THE CRAFT with UNKINDNESS OF RAVENS #1!

When we first read the previews on this one, we were totally like: holy crap — it’s like a CRAFT comic book, and then some, and that’s a pretty awesome thing, because we loved THE CRAFT back in the day!

In UNKINDNESS OF RAVENS, not all the witches burned during the Salem Witch Trials – and the ones that survived did so together. Now, generations later, their descendants protect the ancient secrets entrusted to them. They call themselves the Ravens.

Wilma is the new girl in school, and she plans to go completely unnoticed – except that she bears an eerie resemblance to the Raven member Waverly. And Waverly just went missing.

But the truth behind Waverly’s disappearance will put the entire coven in danger – and Wilma will have to rely on power she never knew she had if she wants to save her new friends.
