BATMAN & SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN Writer JAMES TYNION IV delivers a home-run and a half with his new ongoing IMAGE series, DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH #1, this Wednesday!

Holy crap, Third Eye Faithful: we are so damn impressed with the output of James Tynion IV these days, and following hot on the heels of successful launches like SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, BATMAN: JOKER WAR, WYND and more — he’s about to set the bar for killer new releases this Fall with DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH, a witchy deep dive into the conspiracies of the world!

Cole Turner has studied conspiracy theories all his life, but he isn’t prepared for what happens when he discovers that all of them are true, from the JFK assassination to flat Earth theory and reptilian shapeshifters. 

One organization has been covering them up for generations. What is the deep, dark secret behind the Department of Truth? 

Bestselling writer JAMES TYNION IV (Batman, Something is Killing the Children) debuts his first Image ONGOING SERIES alongside breakout artist MARTIN SIMMONDS (Dying is Easy)!

The tie-ins to the DEATH METAL crossover have been just as good as the main book itself, and each one adds a crucial layer to this already epic storyline!

In this weeks DEATH METAL: MULTIVERSE’S END, we’re taken into the heart of the DCU Multiverse, and we’re loving every second of it!

Perpetua, mother of all existence, has culled all life and creation in the Multiverse, condensing all beings to one planet: Earth-Prime.

In her quest for power and dominance, she rules absolutely and in totality, using her children-the Monitors and Anti-Monitors-as her heralds and destructors.

But a group of heroes has banded together across multiple worlds in a last-ditch effort to stop her from destroying all of existence: Owlman, President Superman, Iris West, Captain Carrot, Guy Gardner, and others have chosen to make their final stand in a battle they’re destined to lose!

One of our fav comics on the stands has gotta be IMMORTAL HULK, and one of our fav comic writers of the last couple decades has gotta be JEFF LEMIRE.

Put two and two together, and you’ve got yourself something special, and that’s exactly what this weeks THRESHING PLACE one-shot is!

There’s a monster raging in America’s heartland – and it’s not the Hulk. When a young girl goes missing on a Kansas farm, Bruce Banner gets the itch – the one that tells him gamma is on the loose.

But this town doesn’t take kindly to strangers – especially the big, green, violent kind. Can the Hulk save a child before it’s too late, or is he about to take the blame for another massacre?
