CONGRATULATIONS to Our October Winners!

Every week, we have special deals that allow you to participate in our drawings to get awesome prizes! This month, we did something with the first two weeks of the All-New, All-Different Marvel Comics releases. For our first week, if you picked up THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1, THE INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #1, DOCTOR STRANGE #1, and CONTEST OF CHAMPIONS #1, it was a $19.99 deal. With that, you got some free stuff, along with an entry to win #'s 2-6 for free of any one of the titles in the bundle. The second was a $8.99 bundle. If you got the regular copy of Spider-Gwen #1, and then got either the action figure variant, the hip hop variant, or the baby variant cover, you'd get entered to win a free copy of the cosplay variant.

Darkseid War Rages On With Brand-New One-Shots!

The current Justice League event, DARKSEID WAR has been such a huge hit for DC Comics these last couple of months! Things have been shaken up, a major DC Comics supervillain is dead, and specific members of the Justice League have been granted New God abilities! If you haven't been reading Darkseid War, GET ON IT! You're missing out!

Starting this week, DC Comics will begin releasing a series of one-shots focusing on each member of the Justice League who has been affected heavily by the events of the Darkseid War: Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Superman, Lex Luthor, and Shazam.

First up, we have JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARKSEID WAR - BATMAN!

STK686215

As the Darkseid War rages on, Batman's role in Gotham City--and the world-alters drastically as he's forced to accept his new role as a God of Knowledge.

What's New in Indies!?

Wes Craven's COMING OF RAGE #1 (of 5)

Liquid Comics LLC

This year, we lost horror icon Wes Craven, best known for his work The Hills Have Eyes, Scream, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and even comic book film adaptation Swamp-Thing. Before his passing, Craven was working on his very first comic book mini-series, Coming of Rage. It's a five issue mini-series, co-written by horror comic legend Steve Niles, and drawn by Francesco Biagini. Says Craven: "About a year ago I had the beginning of an unwritten joke come into my head: A Vampire, a Werewolf and a Zombie walk into a bar... Just that. My imagination went crazy thinking about what could happen when three such impossibly different characters were thrown together. I met with comic book legend Steve Niles. We hit it off, and decided to work out the story of a very special young man's coming of age, and the two unlikely friends who helped him to survive it. After a bit of hard, fun work, a series of comic books were born, telling the story of how these three ended up on the run together, and how the central character, Ritchie, lost his innocence and became one of the most powerful vampires in the world."

Don't miss what is sure to be a worthwhile hit!

The hammer falls this Halloween!  From New York Times bestselling and Eisner Award-winning writer GREG RUCKA (LAZARUS, Stumptown, Gotham Central) and superstar artist NICOLA SCOTT (Birds of Prey, Secret Six, Earth 2)! Detective Rowan Black works robbery/homicide for the Portsmouth PD, but her greatest mystery is the  truth about herself...both who she has been, and who she will become. Yet there are others in Rowan's world with very long memories, and the power that one person holds, another will always covet. PLUS, each issue also features an all-new work of original fiction by GREG RUCKA! A new gothic-noir ongoing series about legacy,  destiny, redemption...and the price of magic.

WEBWITCH #1

Avatar Press

Ten Years in the making, Matt Martin's Webwitch launches with an enormous 64 page first issue!  Written and drawn by the cover maestro, Matt Martin, Webwitch is the story of a sultry secret agent, with skills far beyond her peers.  She never suspects those heightened reflexes and amazing agility are due to alien DNA, locked away in her system.  All seems to be perfect for Nina as she falls in love with her handler and together they go on exotic missions... until her world crumbles.  The Webwitch alien race comes to Earth, bringing carnage and death, and activates her as a sleeper agent.  Now with her true nature revealed, and new abilities to change form, Nina is torn between worlds.  Webwitch is a thrill ride of everything from monster carnage and alien melting death rays to sexy women, and even sexier aliens!  
This monstrous launch issue has the first chapter of the story as well as the first chapter of the Tim Vigil's Webwitch story ,which acts as a lead-in to this new series, in full-color for the first time.  But that's not all, a huge gallery of Matt Martin art is also included with over a dozen of his amazing Webwitch covers from years past!  This issue has an amazing array of variant covers including Regular, Wraparound, Honey Trap, and a Retailer Incentive Pure Art by Martin and Alien Seduction cover by Juan Jose Ryp.   Christian Zanier illustrates the Vintage Vixen (a homage to sexy spies of the past) and the ultra-collectable Costume Change 6 cover set (with sexy topless and nude covers included!) that is limited to just 250 sets.
