Die is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of forty-something adults have to deal with the returning unearthly horror they barely survived as teenage role-players. If Kieron’s in a rush, he describes it as ’Goth Jumanji’. That only captures a sliver of what you’ll find in oversized debut issue-where fantasy gets all too real.

One shocking murder, and an unexpected fragment of the Mars he lost, will change his life-and the course of the Earth-forever!



winterWinter Soldier #1 (W) Kyle Higgins (A) Rod Reis

But even though evil devoured evil in the collapse of Challengers Mountain, the Dark Knight still has his doubts. He discovers that the Batman Who Laughs not only survived the fight with The Joker at the end of Metal, but now he is enacting a sinister plan across the Multiverse-something both terrifying and oddly familiar. But when Bruce Wayne realizes the only way to stop this madman is to kill him, he must consider violating the very rule Batman won’t break… the same rule that created this insatiable villain-the Batman Who Laughs!

aquaAquaman #43 (W) Kelly Sue DeConnick (A) Robson Rocha

The tides turn for the Sea King with a new creative team! Star scribe Kelly Sue DeConnick and red-hot artist Robson Rocha take the rudder to steer Aquaman into uncharted waters. 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.
