With the hunting clans closing in, Captain Rook leads the Queen to a city in ruins on a desperate mission to resupply. Unbeknownst to them, however, a new danger awaits within the broken walls - someone with a connection to Rook's past!

A Queen looking for healing. The Chief of the Royal Guard, keeping her safe. But the wilderness is not as it appears. There is more to the darkness of the forests than meets the eye. And, when the pair must stop to restock their supplies... They find that not even the townships may be the safest.

Katie's Pick

Writer: Brian K. Vaughn
Artist: Marcos Martin
Colorist: Muntsa Vicente

From the Eisner Award-winning team behind The Private Eye, Barrier is an unconventional drama about violence, language, and illegal immigration...with a shocking sci-fi twist. After debuting on PanelSyndicate.com, this critically acclaimed five-part miniseries finally comes to print, exclusively from Image Comics. After making the massive, 50-plus-page first issue available to mature readers for FREE on Free Comic Day, this special collector's edition of the first issue is being released in a larger size to match the next four issues being released WEEKLY throughout the rest of May! Printed in its original "landscape" format (side-stapled for convenient shelving!) and graced with gorgeous cardstock covers, each comic is meant to be a durable work of art, and there are no plans for these print issues to ever be collected, so the only way to own your own copies of this groundbreaking story is by supporting your friendly neighborhood comic shop!

 

 

Repeat!!! This will never be combined! Come grab the single issues, arriving weekly, today!!!

PS: As Issue #1 was available (as a non-collectors edition) on Free Comic Book Day, this actually makes it the SECOND week #1 is available. It also means that #2 is also on shelves now!

Justice League: No Justice #1 (of 4)

James' Pick

Writters: Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Joshua Williamson
Artist: Francis Manapul
Colorist: Hi-Fi
Letterer: AndWorld Design

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 this kickoff issue to the four-issue miniseries, after Brainiac systematically takes down all of Earth's super-teams, the last thing the League expects is for him to ask for their help! Without their aid, his home planet and the universe are both doomed!

 

There is a hole in the Source Wall. This has not only led to new magics. New super powers. But also... New Villains. Ones that are ready to seek out and destroy Earth. With the Omega Titans already on their way, new teams must form and fight together. It is the dawning of the new Justice Leagues!

Come by and see us today! And we can offer even more wonderful titles!
