BATMAN #75 begins the final Tom King arc on the BATMAN title with CITY OF BANE Chapter 1! 

The biggest BATMAN storyline from the master storyteller Tom King begins here!

So, while this does feature some YEAR OF THE VILLAIN OFFER goodness — it’s such a big storyline that we had to give it top billing and showcase just why you should jump on board BATMAN if you’re not already reading it, and why issue #75 is the perfect place to start!

Tom King has done an incredible job for nearly 4 years of crafting one of the most memorable BATMAN runs we’ve ever read, and as he winds down his run on the title, we’re stoked to see just what he has in store for the DARK KNIGHT in this epic final arc — CITY OF BANE!

In CITY OF BANE, Bane’s minions have moved into Gotham City, taken control and are ruling with an iron fist-including rounding up any villain who refuses to sign onto Bane’s program-and Batman is nowhere to be found. At least not the Batman anyone knows.

It’s like someone has replaced the real Gotham City with a twisted funhouse-mirror version of it.

Meanwhile, the real Bruce Wayne is on a spiritual quest to regain his fighting spirit after his showdown with his father in the desert.

Can the people of Gotham hold on until their protector is strong enough to come to their rescue?

Plus, what does Lex Luthor’s scheming mean for Gotham City when Bane and the villains are already in control?

This extra-sized anniversary issue kicks off a new multi-part storyline that ties together all the threads of the first 74 issues of Tom King’s epic BATMAN run!

This is a PERFECT place to try Tom King’s BATMAN run if you’ve never read it before! However, if you want to catch up on the series – we have nearly the entire run in single issues in stock, as well as the entire run thus far in trade paperback — so in other words: we can catch you up!

In LOKI #1, after dying a grisly death in THE WAR OF THE REALMS, Loki learned a valuable lesson in warmongering: Don’t get caught.

One of the biggest things to sweep across the DC Universe continues this Wednesday, as Lex Luthor starts to build an army of the DC Universe’s most notorious bad guys!

We’re telling you now, Third Eye Faithful, the stuff that DC Comics has planned with YEAR OF THE VILLAIN, and everything that will be spinning out of it — is HUGE — and the mayhem all continues this week in AQUAMAN #50, and a handful of other OFFER TIE-INS!

As Aquaman settles the Old Gods of Unspoken Water into their new lives in Amnesty Bay, Jackson Hyde, a.k.a. Aqua-lad, seeks out Aquaman to be his new mentor!

Back in Atlantis, Mera makes a move that shocks the Widowhood.

Meanwhile, Black Manta, recently kicked out of the Legion of Doom, prepares to make his next move against his greatest nemesis…but Lex Luthor is about to make him an offer he can’t refuse. Don’t miss our landmark 50th issue and the start of a brand-new story!

Continuing THE OFFER, in JUSTICE LEAGUE #28, “ the Apex Predator rises! Justice-Doom War is coming!

This is the culmination of the Legion of Doom’s master plan, and they will take the Justice League to far-out places they may never return from…and do things the DC Universe may never recover from.

And, then in NIGHTWING #62, after the epic conclusion to the Burnback saga, it’s clear that while he may have forgotten his past, Ric Grayson’s innate skills and instincts as a team leader elevate Team Nightwing to a new level.

But what does that mean for the Blüdhaven PD, and what does that mean for a man who is looking to live a life without the baggage of his past to hold him down?

Ric seeks comfort in Bea’s arms, but may find answers in another’s Talons as we dive headlong into the Year of the Villain! Plus, Lex Luthor delivers the Court of Owls the means to own what they covet most: Ric Grayson.

And in TEEN TITANS #32, Lobo’s back-and he’s got his daughter, Crush, dead to rights!

At least she can ask him about the identity of her mother, right?

And as the Teen Titans square off against the Main Man, an enemy more sadistic than any they’ve ever faced before, questions about the team’s future are still hanging in the balance-that is, if they have any future at all!

Plus, Lobo wants a daughter he can be proud of. Crush wants nothing to do with her father. Lex Luthor is about to ruin Crush’s life.

Don’t forget to collect the special Cover B Villain Portrait Variants for THE OFFER!

In celebration of the awesomeness of DC Bringing on the Bad Guys with THE OFFER, they’re doing a special COVER B variant for each issue which features a killer close-up portrait of one of the iconic bad guys featured in the crossover!

Make sure you snag each one for these three books this week for normal cover price!

COLLAPSER #1 delivers the newest YOUNG ANIMAL book, and brings another hit to Gerard Way’s incredible imprint!! 

We’re super pumped about YOUNG ANIMAL, and all the killer books coming out on it, from the heavyweights like DOOM PATROL to recent newcomer favorites like ETERNITY GIRL, and the latest addition, COLLAPSER, looks so sick!

There’s a voice in the head of Liam James questioning everything he does-from his job at the nursing home to keeping his relationship with his girlfriend afloat.

Liam suffers from anxiety, and the only thing that quiets it is music, which makes a weekly DJ gig his one saving grace. But Liam’s life changes forever when he receives a black hole in the mail (yes, you read that right), one that takes up residence in his chest, grants him insane superpowers, turns him into a celebrity and draws him into a cosmic conflict beyond his wildest imagination.

Where did this black hole come from? Why Liam? Is power the cure? Or will superstardom turn Liam into a black hole himself?

Find out in COLLAPSER, a superhero story that could only come from DC’s Young Animal!

The definitive resource for comic book values, grading and more arrives with its 49th edition in the 2019 OVERSTREET COMIC BOOK PRICE GUIDE!!

Batman’s 80th anniversary, Zorro’s 100th anniversary, and a remembrance of Stan Lee are included in the highlights of The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide #49 as the Bible of serious comic book collectors, dealers and historians returns with its newest edition!

The Guide has been your source for new prices, new feature articles, new additions to the Overstreet Hall of Fame, new market reports and more. Available with three covers: the cover by Tony Daniel features The Joker, Catwoman, The Riddler, Poison Ivy and The Penguin, some of Batman’s deadliest foes; the Firefly cover featuring Mal, Zoe, and Jayne by Diego Galindo; and this year’s Hall of Fame cover features Zorro by Michael Kaluta.


Walt Simonson is the definition of legend, and his work on THOR is the stuff of comic book magic, so when he began returning to Norse mythology with his RAGNAROK series, we were pretty freakin’ stoked!

This newest series is a fantastic, new reader friendly spot to jump into the world of RAGNAROK, and if you’ve never read it before, we highly recommend trying out #1 this week!

In the end, the gods gathered together and met their foes on the Battle Plain of Vigrid.

There, so the stories tell, the gods and their great enemies slaughtered each other, the stars fell from the sky, Midgard itself sank into the all-encompassing ocean, and the Nine worlds were destroyed. In this issue, Thor hears a voice out of the past and learns that not all the old stories are true, and that the path before him now leads to Helheim, the land of the Dead.

Walter Simonson, legendary creator of Star Slammers, Manhunter and the Alien film adaptation (with Archie Goodwin), and the definitive version (after Stan and Jack) of Marvel’s Thor, presents the next thrilling chapter of his own post-Ragnarok Thor saga!

RONIN ISLAND VOL.1 arrives this Wednesday, collecting the 1st arc of the killer alternate history sci-fi Samurai story from BOOM STUDIOS — a must-read!

BOOM STUDIOS have been impressing the heck out of us, and RONIN ISLAND may be the best darn thing we’ve seen from them in the realm of creator-owned work in 2019, it’s THAT good!

After a mysterious attack wipes out the major cities of 19th century Japan, Korea, and China, survivors from all three lands find refuge on a hidden island and build a new society.

Hana, the orphaned daughter of Korean peasants, and Kenichi, son of a great samurai leader, have little in common except for a mutual disdain for the other.

But these young warriors will have to work together when an army invades the island with shocking news: there is a new Shogun and the Island is expected to pay fealty in exchange for protection from a new enemy…a mutated horde that threatens to wipe out all humanity.

Award-winning writer Greg Pak (Firefly, Mech Cadet Yu) and artist Giannis Milonogiannis (Prophet) present a story that examines how we move forward when our past divides, set against the backdrop of a post-disaster 19th century Japan.
