It just won’t stop raining here, and I’m tired and irritable and can’t think of anything clever to say, so let’s just do this.
HARLEY QUINN: HARLEY LOVES JOKER #1 – Paul Dini returns to the character he co-created to deliver the incredible two-issue wrap-up of the “Harley Loves Joker” flashback tale that ran as a backup in HARLEY QUINN last year! As far as The Joker’s concerned, the new headquarters Harley built for them is absolutely perfect…but only she knows the whole place is rigged to come crashing down around them—and she doesn’t know how to stop it!
HARLEY QUINN: HARLEY LOVES JOKER #2 – And in the second and final issue in this two-issue miniseries, the Harley/Joker crime spree reaches an explosive crescendo—literally! Everything blows up—including, perhaps, their relationship…?
SUPERMAN SPECIAL #1 – “THE PROMISE”! Superman’s world is about to change in a big way, but before it does, the Man of Steel has some unfinished business to attend to…on Dinosaur Island! Superman and a forgotten soldier of the past take one last trip together into the abyss of tomorrow, as Captain Storm now stands face-to-face with the world of today! This extra-sized special also features stories by writers Mark Russell and Ian Flynn with art by Kaare Andrews and Bryan Hitch!
THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD: BATMAN AND WONDER WOMAN #4 – Elatha may have been the most recent king of Tir Na Nóg to die, but death is never far from the throne. Batman and Wonder Woman learn about the realm’s first king, his mysterious silver arm and what bearing it may have on the problems of the present, as the Fomorians grow increasingly weary of these strangers and their questions. The duo’s investigation was supposed to bring answers and keep the peace, but it might burn into the spark that ignites the first shots of war!
BLACK MAGICK, VOL. 2: AWAKENINGS 2 TP – The trap around Rowan Black continues to close, with the Hammer closing in on one side and the Ascension now in motion on the other. But the ultimate wound may not be wielded by magick, but instead delivered via the heart. New York Times bestselling creators GREG RUCKA and NICOLA SCOTT bring you the second volume of the critically acclaimed series. Collects BLACK MAGICK #6-11
THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #36 – “MOTHERING INVENTION,” Part Three One day we’ll reveal a happy secret, like a Secret Santa, but not today.
MIGHTY THOR: AT THE GATES OF VALHALLA #1 – “The Death of the Mighty Thor” has come and gone. But Jane Foster’s power to inspire lives on — even in the far future! Don’t miss the tribute to Jason Aaron’s epic tale of Thor and the mighty hammer Mjolnir, drawn by rising star Jen Bartel! And with or without a Thor, the War of Realms continues. As Malekith’s power grows, the realms will fall — and who is left to stop him? Eisner Award–winning artist Ramón Pérez kicks off the next stage of Jason Aaron’s ongoing saga.
