NEW SINGLE ISSUES

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN ANNUAL #1 2ND PTG
AVENGERS HALLOWEEN SPECIAL #1 // From the publisher: Epic thrills and ghastly horror awaits in these all-new twisted tales! Spanning the breadth of the Marvel Universe, through the macabre lens of a murderer’s row of writers and artists assembled here, see your favorite heroes and villains as you’ve never seen them before! Also including the Marvel Comics writing debut of Jay Baruchel (This is the End; Goon)!
BARBARELLA #11 (MR)
BATMAN SECRET FILES #1 FOIL // he Secret Files format returns, with a framing sequence put together by regular Batman creatives Tom King and Mikel Janin. This is not one to miss, if you’re enjoying the main title. 
BATMAN THE MAXX ARKHAM DREAMS #2 (OF 5)
BLACK PANTHER #5
BONE PARISH #4
CROSSED PLUS 100 MIMIC #6 (MR)
CURSE OF BRIMSTONE #7 FOIL
DAREDEVIL #610
DEATHSTROKE YOGI BEAR SPECIAL #1
DOOM PATROL #12 (MR) // The Young Animal line returns once more for a DnD style adventure with the Doom Patrol, with the promise of a return in sometime in the future.
EDGAR ALLAN POE`S SNIFTER OF TERROR #1 (MR) // We’re suckers for a great anthology, and the creator list Ahoy has put together here is beyond amazing. Not only that, their back matter is on point, with cartoons, comics, editorials and prose filling out each hefty chunk of content – all for the price of a regular comic. From the publisher: “Edgar Allan Poe mangles classic tales and brand new stories in this cross between Drunk History and Tales from the Crypt! First, meet AHOY’s own alcohol-damaged version of Poe in “The Facts in The Case of M. Valdemar,” adapted by Tom Peyer (Batman ’66) and drawn by Fred Harper. Then: Sugary cereal meets vampirism in “Dark Chocolate,” by writer Mark Russell (The Flintstones) and artist Peter Snejbjerg (Starman). EXTRA! Comics by Hunt Emerson, unsettling verse by Cienna Madrid illustrated by Carly Wright, and a cartoon by Shannon Wheeler!”
EDGE OF SPIDER-GEDDON #3 (OF 4) 2ND PTG
EDGE OF SPIDER-GEDDON #4 (OF 4) 2ND PTG
EXTERMINATION #4 (OF 5)
FENCE #11
GREEN LANTERN HUCKLEBERRY HOUND SPECIAL #1 // For the past year or so, DC has been alternating between Hanna-Barbera and Looney Toons crossover one-shots in months that have five Wednesdays. This week is no acceptation, as you’ll find a few of those one-shots below. We’re shining a special spotlight on this one, because Mark Russell is expanding on the incredible Snagglepuss Chronicles story from earlier this year by shifting the camera slightly to focus on Huckleberry Hound, who had also appeared in that storyline. This one will be a heartbreaker.
HEROES IN CRISIS #2 (OF 9)
HEX WIVES #1 (MR) // There’s something decidedly witchy in the air these days, what with Sabrina hitting the airwaves to great acclaim (season two is already in production), Redlands doing wonderfully over at Image Comics (which landed series writer Jordie Bellaire the job of reimagining Buffy for Boom! in January) and this title. Part of Vertigo’s new slate of culturally relevant ongoing stories, this in many ways looks to be going in the direction of Sabrina in tackling ideas of how current systems often run counter to women’s rights and safety.
ICE CREAM MAN #8 (MR)
IMMORTAL HULK #5 2ND PTG
IMMORTAL HULK #6 2ND PTG
INFINITY WARS IRON HAMMER #2 (OF 2) 
INJUSTICE VS THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE #4 (OF 6)
INVADER ZIM #36
JL DARK & WONDER WOMAN THE WITCHING HOUR #1 // While Justice League Dark wraps up their big storyline, the main Justice League begins to deal with Drowned Earth. It looks like there really is no rest for the universe’s biggest heroes.
JUSTICE LEAGUE AQUAMAN DROWNED EARTH #1
KIM REAPER VAMPIRE ISLAND #3
LADY MECHANIKA DAME SANS MERCI #3 (OF 3)
LIFE OF CAPTAIN MARVEL #3 (OF 5) 2ND PTG
LOST CITY EXPLORERS #5
MAN-EATERS #2
MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #11
MULTIPLE MAN #5 (OF 5)
NANCY DREW #5
NIGHTWING MAGILLA GORILLA SPECIAL #1
OLD MAN HAWKEYE #10 (OF 12)
OLD MAN LOGAN #50
PLANET OF THE APES TIME OF MAN #1
REALM #10 (MR)
SEX DEATH REVOLUTION #1 (MR) // Black Mask is known for having a line of very progressive comics, and this one will be no exception, taking on ideas of identity through metaphors in genre. From the publisher: “Life is a story. Her’s is being rewritten. Still reeling from the sudden collapse of her cover, Manhattanite sorceress Esperanza tries to rebuild. But everyone in her life is saying she’s done and said things that never happened — terrible things. Before she knows it, she’s becoming someone entirely different. Someone she used to be, once upon a time. Life is full of ch-ch-ch-changes in this urban fantasy from Eisner-nominated writer Magdalene Visaggio (Eternity Girl, Kim & Kim) and artist Becca Farrow (Ladycastle).”
SHANGHAI RED #5 (OF 5)
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG #10

WILD STORM #18
WYTCHES BAD EGG HALLOWEEN SPEC (ONE-SHOT) (MR) // You might know this creative team more from their work on the Detective Comics arc The Black Mirror, or their upcoming stint on the mini-series for The Batman Who Laughs. Either way, you owe it to yourself to check out their work on Wytches. This story can be read on it’s own, or after the first volume, which is available now.
X-MEN BLACK EMMA FROST #1
ZORRO SWORDS OF HELL #1

GHOST FRIENDS FOREVER GN VOL 02
GIRL WHO MARRIED A SKULL OTHER AFRICAN STORIES GN
HIT-GIRL TP VOL 02 (MR)
JESSICA JONES MPGN TP BLIND SPOT // This collection is part of a pilot project for Marvel, where they’ve taken characters that are being featured heavily outside of the realm of the comic book medium, as well as characters that tend to do well digitally, and serializing their in-continuity adventures digitally only. This collection marks the first time this story will have seen print, and for those worrying, it is an incredibly worth successor to all the Bendis and Gaydos driven Jones stories of the past.
KINO TP VOL 02 END OF ALL LIES
LIBRARIANS TP VOL 01
MAESTROS TP VOL 01 (MR)
MAN OF STEEL BY BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS HC
MOONSHINE TP VOL 02 (MR)
MORT CINDER HC (MR) // From the publisher: “The great Alberto Breccia, in collaboration with the Argentine writer Hector German Oesterheld (The Eternaut,) present Mort Cinder, a horror story with political overtones that follows the wanderings through time of a man who rises from the grave each time he is killed, bearing witness to the darkest sides of humanity. American comics creators such as Frank Miller (300, Sin City) and Mike Mignola (Hellboy) owe Breccia a great debt; these horror-adventure tales are as thrilling, dread-inducing, and accessible as when they were created a half a century ago.”
OF DUST & BLOOD HC
RED HOOD & THE OUTLAWS TP VOL 04 GOOD NIGHT GOTHAM
SHADOW DOUBLE NOVEL VOL 135 GHOST MURDERS  SHIPS
STEPHEN MCCRANIES SPACE BOY TP VOL 02

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD HC GN
WEAPON H TP VOL 01 AWOL
WWE UNDERTAKER ORIGINAL GN // The Undertaker’s career gets the comic book treatment once more… and this time, he won’t be fighting demons. Or… he might not be fighting demons. The Boom Studios line of WWE content takes real storylines from the product, and fleshes out the backstory, showing what happens to these people outside of the confines of Raw and Smackdown. It is always interesting, and this should be no different.
X-MEN GRAND DESIGN SECOND GENESIS TP // We’re pretty big on Ed Piskor here, and his heavy research based approach to comics. This is the second in his line of three giant X-Men collections that give the team a very documentarian style story, this time focusing on the original Uncanny era.
