Batman: White Knight #1

Heather's Pick

In a world where Batman has gone too far, The Joker must save Gotham City.
He's been called a maniac, a killer and the "Clown Prince of Crime" but "white knight"? Never. Until now... Set in a world where the Joker is cured of his insanity and homicidal tendencies, The Joker, now known as "Jack," sets about trying to right his wrongs. First he plans to reconcile with Harley Quinn, and then he'll try to save the city from the one person who he thinks is truly Gotham City's greatest villain: Batman! Superstar writer and artist Sean Murphy (Punk Rock Jesus, The Wake) presents a eight-issue miniseries of a twisted Gotham City with a massive cast of heroes and villains that, at its heart, is a tragic story of a hero and a villain: Batman and The Joker. But which is the hero-and which the villain? 

Joker... As a "good guy"? No... Wait... What? He is healed? Noooooo?!?!? This book is crazy! It is beautiful! Though, we did not need to tell you that! Sean Murphy's art and storytelling and breathtaking. Batman: White Knight #1 WILL sell out. Critics are already suggesting that this book will rank along side titles such as Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. Which means you need to pick it up before it is gone!

I Hate Image Special Edition

Katie's Pick

The Free Comic Book Day hit is back, with even more pages! Gertrude has been stuck in Fairyland for decades when she finally hears of a secret passage that may be her way back home. But reaching it is easier said than done, as she crosses the border into Image where she'll have to chop her way through your favorite characters from SAGA, THE WALKING DEAD, SAVAGE DRAGON, SPAWN, DESCENDER, BLACK SCIENCE, SOUTHERN BASTARDS, and many more! This all-new special edition features four additional pages of story as Gert slices and dices her way through even more of your Image favorites, plus a behind the scenes look at Skottie's script, layouts, and black and white artwork all wrapped in a brand-new cover!

Gert is on a rampage. She will destroy anyone in her path to get out of Fairyland. Even if she has to destroy all of Image to do so! Seriously! She kills everyone! Skottie Young (Fortunately, The Milk, Rocket Raccoon) created a masterpiece of comic universe destruction.

Did you not get I Hate Image on Free Comic Book Day because it was the hottest book of the 2017 event? Or did you get it and need another version (or two), which includes additional pages with  new art and scripts, because it is just that amazing? We have it and you definitely need it! So come and get it before it is all gone.

Dark Nights - Batman: The Dawnbreaker #1

James's Pick

As the events of DARK NIGHTS: METAL rock the DC Universe, the creatures of the Dark Multiverse stand ready to invade our world! How can even the World's Greatest Heroes stop a horde of deadly beings that appear to be powerful, nightmare versions of familiar figures? Find out in these special tie-in issues!

Cannibal #8

Norrin's Pick

END OF STORY ARC
In this conclusion to the second arc, the Hansen family decide the fate of a loved-one who is infected with the virus. But to carry out their plans, they must go through one of their own.

The second arc of Brian Buccellato (Sons of the Devil), Jennifer Young and Matias Bergara's (Sons of Anarchy) Southern Gothic hits a dark conclusion. Families can be difficult but when death is involved and family is pitted against each other, sometimes all we need is a small light at the end of the tunnel. But will the Willow townsfolk get any happiness?

Come in and grab the conclusion of the second arc of this emotional series. Need to catch up on Cannibal? The first Trade Paperback is currently in stock and we are taking pre-orders for Volume 2, which hits shelves November 29th.

Phew! That is a week! And if you come in and see us, we will happily hand you even more! So come on by. And make sure to check back here weekly (we will do get better) for all of the best Staff Picks!
