1. The epic real-world superhero trilogy starts its bloody descent into finality!
2. After Kick-Ass 2 (which is being adapted into the Kick-Ass 2 film sequel in August), Hit-Girl has been arrested and hero vigilante’s are on the run from the law. It’s up to Kick-Ass and his assembled team of street level heroes to storm the police station and break Mindy out!
3. Original series creators Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. (Avengers vs. X-Men) are back to put the final nail in this series, promising never to make any more Kick-Ass stories again!
4. To commemorate the debauched violence present in this first issue, issue #1 comes with six different, interlocking covers by the likes of Adam Hughes, Pasqual Ferry, Marc Silvestri, Cully Hamner, Adam Kubert, and John Romita, Jr.
1. After years of delay and false-starts, Astro City is back! And this time DC‘s adult Vertigo imprint is the publisher!
2. The entire team from the original, award-winning, legendary series is all back! That’s Kurt Busiek, Brent Anderson, and Alex Ross on covers!
4. Tired of the same-old-same-old superhero book from the big two? Enter into an entirely fresh world of original heroes in this ongoing series!
1. Few first comic ventures by young artists and writers show true promise. Ian Alley-Seals and Carl Mefferd, the writer and artist of this series, do!
2. A pulpy adventure offspring of Treasure Island and Doc Savage, teams up a mad pirate doctor, Julius Fowler, and his native assistant, Chosot, against cannibals, the elements, and prehistoric sea creatures!
3. Alley-Seals and Mefferd work together like two veterans, balancing dialog and visuals for a minimalist tale that gets quite when it needs too. The two also understand how to construct mysteries out of character, as the first volume kept its readers guessing at the sanity of its two leads.
4. Missed volume one? Don’t worry, volume two will drop you into the story with all you need to know!
1. Geoff Johns just ended his nearly decade-long run on Green Lanter, which means many people will react by dropping this series. That would be the wrong choice!
2. Robert Vendetti, the new series writer, may not have the name that Johns does, but he’s proven himself a skilled, journeyman writer by dragging Demon Knights out of the dregs and creating the award-winning graphic novel, The Surrogates.
3. After ten years of continuous story, Green Lantern is at a fresh starting point, making it easier than ever for new readers to break into the rich cosmic corner of the DC Universe.
4. Expect the series to return to its space cop roots, meaning simpler story arcs, broader action, and a stricter focus on Hal Jordan!
