First up, we have JUSTICE LEAGUE: REBIRTH #1!

From heavy-weight creator BRYAN HITCH; Spinning out of the events of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1, a new day dawns for Earth's greatest heroes as they welcome three new members to the team, including... Superman?

Don't Miss Out on Experiencing The Major Plot Twist

That Almost Broke The Internet in

CAPTAIN AMERICA: STEVE ROGERS #1!

One of the biggest plot twists in Marvel Comics history was within the final pages of Marvel's CAPTAIN AMERICA: STEVE ROGERS #1! It shook up the history of Captain America and the fanbase to its core. It was incredibly controversial, and as soon as the news hit, stores nation-wide sold out of the first print within their first week, including us. Every single copy we bought was whisked away!

This week, Marvel will be releasing their second prints for this monumental issue, and if you haven't picked it up, you're gonna want to once it hits our shelves!

He's back! The original Sentinel of Liberty returns, with a new shield, a new team, and a new mission! And he's not the only one who's back! Like the saying goes - cut off one limb, two more will take its place! Hail Hydra!

KIM AND KIM #1

BLACK MASK COMICS

(W) Magdalene Visaggio (A) Eva Cabrera (CA) Tess Fowler & Various

Kim & Kim are twentysomething besties out to make a name for themselves in the wild world of interdimensional cowboy law enforcement. In a massive "screw you" to their parents and the authorities, they decide to hijack some high stakes bounty - and end up in way over their heads. Kim & Kim is a day-glo action adventure that's bursting with energy and enthusiasm. It puts queer women and trans women front and center, with a story that embraces the absurd alongside realistic pathos. It's a mature book that focuses on the power and meaning of female friendships as engines of validation.

LONE RANGER GREEN HORNET #1 (OF 6)

Dynamite Entertainment

(W) Michael Uslan (A) Giovanni Timpano (CA) John Cassaday

A tale of super-heroics and family that has taken eighty years to be told! This first chapter, entitled "Those Thrilling Days of Yesteryear," creates a world of carefully researched alternative history in 1936 as we learn whatever happened to The Lone Ranger and discover his familial link to the emergence of a man who is a modern day urban version of The Lone Ranger himself. What is the blood connection of The Green Hornet to The Lone Ranger? What is the link of Olympic runner Jesse Owens to The Green Hornet? What role does Bat Masterson play in The Lone Ranger's New York adventure? What intense rift tears a family apart just when America desperately needs a great champion of justice? The shocking answers lie in the historic first issue of "The Lone Ranger Meets the Green Hornet: Champions of Justice!"
