White Tiger #1 (Of 6); written by Tamora Pierce and Timothy Liebe, pencils by Phil Briones, covers by David Mack
Take it ready to roll, and here it goes, one from another page jumping into her own...
Roaring out of the pages of Daredevil, the new White Tiger makes a ferocious debut, courtesy of the dynamic scripting of NY Times best-selling fantasy author Tamora Pierce (Trickster's Queen, The Will of the Empress) and masterful penciling of rising star Phil Briones (La Geste des Chevaliers-Dragons, Les Seigneurs d'Agartha).
Angela del Toro knows pain: Her uncle Hector Ayala, the former White Tiger, killed. Her FBI partner, murdered. Her career, ruined. Her mentor, Matt Murdock, jailed. And the hurt is just beginning....The Yakuza's bloodthirsty Sano Orii returns, a genocidal shadow organization appears, and a new-but-old super-powered madman is looking to put the squeeze on White Tiger.
Armed with mystical amulets---and finally in costume---White Tiger demands answers! But will she survive long enough to ask the right questions?

Seven Soldiers: Zatanna #1 (of 4); Written by Grant Morrison, art by Ryan Sook and Mick Gray
DC's sorceress supreme, Zatanna Zatara, has unwittingly found herself in the middle of an anti-myxomatosis
versus pro-myxomatosis battle over the population control of rabbits. Honing an age old magic trick of pulling out a white rabbit from a top hat, Zatara -- daughter of John Zatara and Sindella and a reputed descendant of Leonard da Vinci -- soon found her quarters filling up with the lagomorphs.
As the act scurried wildly out of control, the enchantress found herself ambushed by a pack of publicity hungry photographers armed with their telescopic lenses and flash bulbs. Under the glare and sudden capture, red-eye reduction methods were of no aid against a mammal whose eyes stain red like the morning after a heavy bender.
With the facility based off an island near Themyscira
, it's not clear how the sudden population explosion of the rabbits will affect the environment. Assurances that the rabbits are all merely temporary constructs doing little to abate worries of the cabbage patch kids.
What started out as a mere profile boost in the vein of I'm a Celebrity - Get Me Out of Here!
and Reborn in the USA
now sees two sides of a debate pitted against each other by its very definition.
