Frank Frazetta's Death Dealer #1; written by Joshua Ortega, art by Nat Jones and Jay Fotos, covers by Frank Frazetta
Frazetta's Death Dealer always gets the props, but the horse what steads the visage fairs lesser despite holding up the crux. What a blow for the rights of animal and beastly companions every where, every time the thought is passed over.
Frank Frazetta's legendary creation is brought to life in this epic, ages-spanning tale of dark fantasy, magic and horror. Critically acclaimed novelist and comics writer Joshua Ortega (THE NECROMANCER, STAR WARS) teams up with cult-favorite artists Nat Jones (SPAWN: THE DARK AGES, ROB ZOMBIE'S THE NAIL) and Jay Fotos (SPAWN, ‘68) to bring you the first Death Dealer tale worthy of Frazetta's blessing—this one's been approved every step of the way by the Master himself! A new era for the Death Dealer begins here—don't miss out on the definitive story of Frazetta's most famous creation!

TMNT Movie Prequel #1: Raphael - written by Steve Murphy, art by Fernando Pinto
During the initial highs of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles mania, with the cartoon, action figures and movies, they sold all sorts of merchandise to bring in the kids.
One such concoction was a tiny bucket of green ooze with a little glow-in-the-dark turtle wearing an eye mask. Short of actual turtle soup, the slime lasted a short while in the heat before it was just runny snot.
The first of our five movie prequels slated for release in the weeks immediately preceding the opening of the new TMNT CGI movie!
Prequel #1 focuses on Raphael's growing disillusionment with his brothers and sensei, his increasing use of violence and the strange discovery that might provide the solution to his problems. Not to mention lots of kick-butt dark-of-night ninja action!
Prequel #2 focuses on Michelangelo's secret identity as the children’s entertainer Cowabunga Carl! When a purse-snatcher interrupts Carl’s gig at a hockey game can nunchaku ninja action and Casey Jones be far behind? It's a face-off... and in more ways than one!
TMNT Movie Prequel one shots from Mirage Studios
War in Iraq, what's not to love? Army@Love
from the battle cries of Rick Veitch and Gary Erskine show the ensuing madness makes for hot and steamy times ducking under the whizzing bullets and mortar shells. Comedy of errors really, and then there's the comic.
Fall for the heroes who have fallen from their pedestals. Where the pressure is too much and the quick kick to a pick up leaves the question of just how to cope and deal with all that pressure. Howard Wong and Marco Rudy go After The Cape

Simon Furman and Marcelo Matere drop a tape into the boom box and let loose with Transformers Spotlight: Soundwave
. Soundwave takes an eye to Bludgeon who is in charge of finding out about what happened to Shockwave. Eat enough foil and the teeth will hate you for it.

. A town sinks below the depths and from there it's pretty much a seafood platter for those knocking about for more braaaaaaaaiiins.
Lady Death Annual
takes a holiday with Brian Pulido and Richard Ortiz and Daniel HDR. No, apparently that's right.
Anthony Flamini, Ronald Byrd and Scott Kolins survey the end and the aftermath of the Pro vs Anti Registration camps in Civil War: Battle Damage Report
. Scout the land, smell the burning embers and make a nice toasted sandwich with cheese that melts a hole in your mouth.
And the turtle still glows in the dark to this day.

City of Heroes #1 (of 4); written by Steve Niles, art by Bernie Wrightson and covers by Jose Villarrubia
Walk up and down the streets long enough and the faces of people blur as too long on eye contact is often the start of something strange. What that strangeness happens to be, love or hate, depends on the heat of the day, the linger of the eye and the flick of the hair.
When it comes to horror comics, few artists can measure up to the legendary Bernie Wrightson. Now, after a long hiatus from making comics, Wrightson is back at the drawing table working side-by-side with acclaimed writer Steve Niles on the most exciting new horror comic of the year - City of Others.
Stosh Bludowski is a killer, born with the capacity for no apparent human emotion other than rage. Killing comes easy for Blud, and he makes a good living doing what's easy-until the day he meets two jobs in an alley who just won't die, and a grotesque mystery unfolds right in front of him. Soon, the remorseless killer is confronted by a reality he could never imagine, and he will be invited to make a decision once and for all . . . is he human, or is he Other?
"Bernie is one of my greatest heroes and influences in art. When it comes to horror, few creators have contributed more to the comics medium than Bernie has." -Alex Ross
City of Others #1 (of 4) from Dark Horse
Take it on the first shoulder as Annihilation: Heralds of Galactus
blasts away a part of the fleet. Battle the fray with Christios Gage, Stuart Moore, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Mike McKone.
from Platinum Studios is a lot of red, a lot of black, and a whole lot of, well, who knows when these things play all trailer and hand out little in the way of fish biscuits. Rob Moran and James Devlin take this into the two before John Keane comes in the second pair over Devlin.
Six limbs aplenty on the chopping block when Avatar Press let spew forth the Plague of the Living Dead
. Zombies, John Russo and Dheeraj Verma abound. Zombies this time getting another mix of the brain pie from fresh Vietnam War vets. Not that that isn't yet to be sucked dry yet.
End of one line when Marvel Comics hot step it with Runaways #24
. After this conclusion, Brian K Vaughn (also finishing up with that blue form mini featuring Doctor Strange) and Adrian Alphona hand the deed for their title over to Joss Whedon and Michael Ryan.
No banjos or drums on set as it's Jack Horner and a bagman fist to fist in Jack of Fables #5
. From Vertigo, Bill Willingham, Matthew Sturges and Tony Akins. No diet.
IDW pops out a bot of Ashley Wood love and experimentation as Ashley Woods' D'Airain Adventure
