THE DEFENDERS reunite in the conclusion to the incredible DEFENDERS: BEST DEFENSE mini-series!

The sleeper hit of the winter concludes with the iconic reuniting of the original DEFENDERS!
We’ve loved every second of what AL EWING and the crew of all-star talent have put together with their DEFENDERS BEST DEFENSE mini-event!
We’re huge, huge fans of what writer AL EWING is doing with the IMMORTAL HULK, and are so excited to see him masterminding the reunion of the original DEFENDERS!
We’ve been loving the heck out of what Marvel has been doing with recent titles like IMMORTAL HULK, DOCTOR STRANGE, and more — and now, some of the biggest writers working in the Marvel Universe today are uniting to release FIVE big one-shots reuniting the original DEFENDERS!
BEST DEFENSE concludes in the DEFENDERS BEST DEFENSE finale one-shot as we find the lost Atlanteans. The Train. The bedsheet man. Dead Steve. The Stock Exchange of Souls. Trust us, it all makes sense.
In fact, it makes enough sense to destroy our entire solar system… Unless four very different  heroes can come together to stop it.

AVATAR THE LAST AIRBENDER THE IMBALANCE PART ONE delivers the first in a new series of graphic novels!

We loved the heck out of the AVATAR and KORRA graphic novels that DARK HORSE had put out before, and when we saw they were returning with an all new series of AVATAR stories — we knew we had to shout it out to you guys!
When Team Avatar return to Earthen Fire Industries, the factory owned by Toph’s father, they find that the once small town is now booming, yet a strange mood hangs over its residents.
When Aang is asked to join a business council meeting, the reason becomes clear: a massive bender versus non-bender conflict is threatening to turn violent.
Written by Faith Erin Hicks (The Nameless City) and drawn by Peter Wartman (Stonebreaker), in collaboration with Avatar: The Last Airbender creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, this is the ultimate continuation of Avatar!

AQUAMAN #43 begins an all new direction & era as superstar KELLY SUE DECONNICK comes on board !

We’re huge fans of writer Kelly Sue DeConnick, who’s wowed us with her work on CAPTAIN MARVEL and BITCH PLANET, and we’re so stoked to see her coming on board!
In the wake of “Drowned Earth,” an amnesiac Arthur washes ashore on a remote island, and ends up being cared for by a young woman named Callie, who’s just a little TOO curious for comfort.
And as a lifetime of horror movies has taught us, there’s something strange going on in this island village.
Aquaman needs to come to his senses quickly…or he might wind up sleeping with the fishes instead of chatting with them.
