DC Universe: Rebirth #1

It all starts here. “Rebirth is about focusing in on the core of the character and their respective universe,” says writer and DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns. “It brings back what has been lost: the legacy of the characters, the love and the hope of the DCU!”

Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas #1

Troy Little’s gonzo adaptation of Hunter Thompson’s Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas is now available in an all-new format. Find out why GQ said “Little’s cartoonish sensibilities make him the ideal artist to adapt Thompson’s gonzo ur-text… perfectly portraying literature’s most ridiculous road trip.”

IDW Publishing


Nighthawk #1

Straight from the pages of Squadron Supreme comes one of the most brutal super heroes of the Marvel Universe. Nighthawk is Chicago’s dark protector, dispensing swift, decisive justice to those that truly deserve it. When the city’s shadiest power brokers turn up murdered in gristly ways, the apparent work of an inventive serial killer, Nighthawk must ask himself, Does this predator deserve to be caught? Who is the killer? What is he after? What does he want from Nighthawk? To answer these questions, Nighthawk must first look in the mirror.
