SCOTT SNYDER unleashes the most highly anticipated of the NEW AGE OF HEROES books with NEW CHALLENGERS #1!

DARK NIGHTS METAL scribe SCOTT SNYDER teams up with superstar ANDY KUBERT to deliver a modern day take on CHALLENGERS OF THE UNKNOWN and it rules!!
We’re loving all of the new titles launching out of the DC NEW AGE OF HEROES, and of the entire line, the most promising has gotta be NEW CHALLENGERS from superstar SCOTT SNYDER (DARK NIGHTS METAL, BATMAN COURT OF OWLS) and ANDY KUBERT (DARK KNIGHT III MASTER RACE).
This must-read reinvention of one of the coolest and most classic DC concepts: CHALLENGERS OF THE UNKNOWN, takes an old idea and breathes new life into it in one of the best ways we’ve seen yet.
In NEW CHALLENGERS, Challengers Mountain has returned to the DC Universe and chosen a new team of explorers!
Five misfit strangers are given a second chance at life, but only if they obey the orders of the mysterious Professor and execute deadly missions in the most unexplored corners of the multiverse!
And if the new Challengers of the Unknown fail…it will be more than just their own lives that hang in the balance!
With all the cool multiverse-related awesomeness that Snyder set up in DARK NIGHTS METAL, we’re super amped to see a book that literally provides a way for him to explore and uncover more corners of the Multiverse in a big way!

AVENGERS #2 continues the best freakin’ AVENGERS comic we’ve read in years this Wednesday as Jason Aaron & Ed McGuinness make pure MARVEL magic!

We completely and totally LOVED the first issue of Jason Aaron’s incredible AVENGERS run that’s leading the charge for Marvel’s new line up of titles!
So, when we saw that issue #2 was on the way this week with more Celestial madness — we knew we had to give you all the shout out about it!
In AVENGERS #2, Black Panther and Dr. Strange battle for their lives deep within the earth…
Captain Marvel battles death and destruction raining down from the skies, while Thor, Iron Man and Captain America lead the valiant (yet hopeless) fight against the Final Host of Dark Celestials.
And Ghost Rider and the Savage Hulk make brutal war against…each other?
Plus, you can’t have a gathering of Avengers without a certain Prince of Lies, now can you?
What’s the scoop on AVENGERS #1? Bringing the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes back to their roots and reuniting the classic AVENGERS trinity of THOR, IRON MAN and CAPTAIN AMERICA, arguably one of the best writers working in comics today, JASON AARON, is going to be making ours Marvel once again in a big way!
Thor Odinson. Steve Rogers. Tony Stark. The Big Three of the Avengers are reunited at last!
And just in time to save the world from total annihilation at the hands of their most powerful enemies yet: the 2000-foot-tall space gods known as Celestials.
Behold the coming of the Final Host.
Who will answer the call to assemble for a wild new era of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes?
Hint: one of them has a flaming skull for a head. And what strange, world-shaking connection exists between the Final Host and Odin’s ancient band of Prehistoric Avengers?
Third Eye Faithful, just trust us when we tell you that you do NOT want to sleep on this! This will be one of the biggest and best books of the Summer, and now is the time to dip you toes back into the Marvel Universe!

The biggest must-read JUSTICE LEAGUE since Grant Morrison relaunched the League many years ago continues as DARK NIGHTS METAL writer SCOTT SNYDER unveils JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE – a new mini-series leading into his upcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE ongoing series!

Following up on the events of METAL – JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE is THE definitive start point for TONS of major things to go down this Summer in the DCU, and the official lead in to Snyder’s upcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE ongoing!
By now, you’ve seen where METAL left us – with an all new Hall of Justice, and a new era for the JUSTICE LEAGUE to behold.
Now, the road to that era begins immediately in the aftermath of METAL, as METAL writer SCOTT SNYDER kicks off JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE this week, a 4-part weekly series running through all of May, and paving the way to Snyder’s upcoming ongoing JUSTICE LEAGUE series!
DARK NIGHTS: METAL left the DCU transformed in ways both terrifying and wondrous-and only the Justice League is strong enough to face the threats to come…or are they?
Four giant beings comprised of the universe’s major energies-Mystery, Wonder, Wisdom and Entropy-who sustain their life force by devouring planets are on their way to destroy the planet of Colu.
The only way to take down this unimaginable threat is for the superhero teams of Earth to forget everything they thought they knew and form new alliances.
What secrets of the cosmos will Superman, Martian Manhunter and Team Mystery discover?
Will Zatanna, Wonder Woman and Team Wonder awaken alien magic they cannot put back to sleep? What can Harley Quinn possibly have to teach the rest of Team Wisdom?
And most importantly…why the heck is Beast Boy on Team Entropy with Lobo and Batman?
Find out all this and much more in the most exciting, bombastic event of summer 2018!
In issue #2 this week, the teams arrive at Brainiac’s home world to find it already in chaos.
Only by splitting up and journeying to the four cosmic trees of Colu will they have any hope of saving the planet…but what’s waiting for them will test the true mettle of their new alliances!

Image’s GIDEON FALLS #3 continues to deliver one of our favorite new reads courtesy of JEFF LEMIRE (THANOS, THE TERRIFICS, SWEET TOOTH, and so many more!)!!

A hard-hitting blend of horror / crime drama that fans of series like TRUE DETECTIVE & SE7EN will love!
We are absolutely hooked on GIDEON FALLS, and so amped to see the third issue hitting this week!
In issue #3, Norton gets closer to the secrets of the Black Barn as Fred discovers a grizzly new crime in Gideon Falls.
What’s the scoop on GIDEON FALLS? In GIDEON FALLS, the lives of a reclusive young man obsessed with a conspiracy in the city’s trash, and a washed-up Catholic priest arriving in a small town full of dark secrets, become intertwined around the mysterious legend of The Black Barn, an otherworldly building that is alleged to have appeared in both the city and the small town, throughout history, bringing death and madness in its wake.
Rural mystery and urban horror collide in this character-driven meditation on obsession, mental illness, and faith.

We’re super pumped about what’s on the way with the next big chapter of SHATTERED GRID!
In issue #27, as Lord Drakkon’s power and influence grows, the Power Rangers work with new allies from across time and dimensions, including Ranger teams such as Time Force, RPM, and Samurai, to craft a plan to fight back…but is it already too late?
What’s the scoop on SHATTERED GRID? In issue #25, the incredibly popular, and totally awesome evil Ranger, LORD DRAKKON, returns.
Who is Lord Drakkon? First appearing in MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #25, Lord Drakkon is an older, alternate reality version of Tommy Oliver (better known as the White and Green Ranger), who is an absolutely sinister character twisted by time and the world he resides in.
What’s the scoop on SHATTERED GRID? This massive crossover spans MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS & GO GO POWER RANGERS, and much like iconic comic events like CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS and SECRET WARS, it will leave the entire world of the POWER RANGERS universe a different place.
In this massive storyline, nearly every POWER RANGERS friend and foe will make an appearance, and be involved, as Lord Drakkon wreaks utter and complete havoc!

CROSSED: MIMIC #1 delivers a killer new spin on the most brutal survival horror line of comics to ever exist!!

Find out why the universe of CROSSED has always been one of the most no holds barred in any medium for horror!
The world of CROSSED is definitely a pretty hard-hitting one, and CROSSED MIMIC is set to be the most unrelenting journey into the CROSSED universe yet!
CROSSED MIMIC takes us 100 years into the future, 100 years after the CROSSED infection first began, and shows us how civilization has moved on since then!
With MIMIC, the notorious Beau Salt’s disciples invades a military base to pick apart the best and brightest.
What’s up with CROSSED? CROSSED is a world where an infection of pure evil has overtaken humanity; spreading a cross-like red rash across their faces, and instilling them with the driving desire to commit pure acts of horror upon mankind.
Unlike a zombie outbreak, the CROSSED still have all the knowledge, memories, and more that they had before the CROSSED over, making them much more devious, and much more dangerous than any zombie walker to hunger for brains!

QUICKSILVER NO SURRENDER #1 delivers a new mini-series from rising superstar SALADIN AHMED (BLACK BOLT, EXILES) that picks up in the aftermath of the red hot AVENGERS: NO SURRENDER arc!!

You know, one of our personal favorite formats for comics is the mini-series; because there really is no better way for top talent to showcase some of the lesser-known characters in comics in a premiere way than a killer 4-6 issue arc.
In QUICKSILVER: NO SURRENDER, Quicksilver’s super-speed and abrasive personality have always isolated him, but he’s never been truly alone…until now.
Trapped beyond the perception of friends, family and allies, Quicksilver wages a one-man guerilla war against a monster that he’s not even sure is real, to save a world that he may never be a part of again.
One of the coolest riffs on QUICKSILVER we’ve ever seen — highly recommend you check this out and find out why SALADIN AHMED is becoming one of our favorite writers at Marvel!

GARTH ENNIS (PREACHER, THE BOYS, PUNISHER MAX, CROSSED) delivers his most relentless take on horror comics yet with A WALK THROUGH HELL #1!!

We are, and always will be, giant fans of the one and only GARTH ENNIS, and his latest project, A WALK THROUGH HELL, may be one of our favorites from the man yet!
In a new kind of horror comic for modern America, Ennis weaves a fascinating tale that will leave you utterly creeped out!
Special Agents Shaw and McGregor handle the routine cases nowadays, which is just the way Shaw likes it.
She’s pushing 40, a borderline burnout, the ghastly memories of her last investigation still clinging like shadows. McGregor is younger, more dedicated, hanging onto some measure of idealism whatever the world might throw at him.
When two fellow agents go missing inside a Long Beach warehouse, Shaw and McGregor are sent to investigate.
But what they find waiting is far from routine, as the local police have already discovered to their cost.
Before the night is out, our heroes will encounter terror beyond their most appalling nightmares-in a place where the night may never end at all.
