Deadman: Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love (2016-2017)

Boston Brand is a dead man walking. More than walking, actually—his uncanny abilities enable him to float, fly and seize control of the bodies of the living. He’s no mere ghost. He’s something more powerful, more heroic. He is Deadman! And he’s about to meet Berenice—a living woman with powers of her own.

Berenice’s complicated life and loves have driven her to the haunted halls of the sprawling mansion known as Glencourt Manor. It’s a place where the forces of darkness are known to gather—a house where a person with Berenice’s power to talk to the dead could accomplish great good…or unleash incredible evil.

Separated by the boundary between life and death, yet able to walk between both worlds, Deadman and Berenice must work together to unravel the mystery of the Manor and defeat the dark forces that threaten to erupt. Mystery, murder, resurrection and romance await. The only question is, are their hearts and souls strong enough to survive?

Unlock the answer in DEADMAN: DARK MANSION OF FORBIDDEN LOVE, from acclaimed creators Sarah Vaughn (ALEX + ADA), Lan Medina (FABLES) and José Villarrubia (SWEET TOOTH). This Gothic tale of passion and betrayal is an all-new twist on the character of Boston Brand. Collects DEADMAN: DARK MANSION OF FORBIDDEN LOVE Books #1-3.

Doom Patrol (2016-) Vol. 1: Brick by Brick

The spirit of Grant Morrison’s groundbreaking DOOM PATROL is captured in this debut series starring the cult-favorite misfits as a part of Gerard Way’s new Young Animal imprint.

Flex Mentallo, Robotman, Rebis, Crazy Jane, and more are back to twist minds and take control. This new take on a classic embraces and reimagines the Morrison run’s signature surrealism and irreverence. Incorporating bold, experimental art and a brash tone to match a new generation of readers, Gerard Way’s DOOM PATROL establishes radical new beginnings, breaks new ground, and honors the warped team dynamic of the world’s strangest heroes.

This abstract and unexpected ensemble series nods at the Doom Patrol’s roots by continuing to break the barriers of the traditional superhero genre. Collects issues #1-6.

DOOM PATROL is the flagship title of Young Animal–a four-book grassroots mature reader imprint, creatively spearheaded by Gerard Way, bridging the gap between the DCU and Vertigo, and focusing on the juxtaposition between visual and thematic storytelling.

Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps (2016-) Vol. 2: Bottled Light

A part of DC Rebirth!

Hal Jordan is about to go from the head of the Green Lantern Corps to an army of one. Jordan’s long, illustrious–and tumultuous–tenure with the Corps takes several hairpin turns. At lightspeed. Toward a black hole. In a blender!

For starters, the Green Lantern Corps has disappeared, and now Sinestro’s own Corps enforces his uniquely brutal brand of law and order in the universe. As a result, Jordan has no ring to sling, or Sector 2814 (a.k.a. Earth) to protect. (So more of the usual for Hal!)

Green Lantern veteran Robert Venditti teams up with Rafa Sandoval and Ethan Van Sciver to pilot HAL JORDAN & THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS VOL. 2! Collects HAL JORDAN & THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #8-13.

Rebirth honors the richest history in comics, while continuing to look towards the future. These are the most innovative and modern stories featuring the world’s greatest superheroes, told by some of the finest storytellers in the business.

Honoring the past, protecting our present, and looking towards the future. This is the next chapter in the ongoing saga of the DC Universe. The legacy continues.

Injustice 2 (2017-) #9

Batman asks Ted Kord to join his new Justice League Council, but Ted runs afoul of Deadshot before he can answer.

Supergirl (2005-2011) Vol. 3: Ghosts of Krypton

Since Kara Zor-El of Krypton came to Earth, she has been confused by its people and customs. In her role as Supergirl, she’s found it hard to adapt to her new home and still struggles with the loss of her family and home planet. The world views her as a lesser version of the Man of Steel-her cousin, mentor and only living family member. What will it take for the most powerful girl on Earth to prove herself?

That’s what the Kryptonian teen wants to find out. Her quest will take her from her own past on doomed Krypton to the distant future of the Legion of Super-Heroes. And on Earth, she vows to save a little boy from the cancer that is killing him. Superman and Wonder Woman believe that Kara’s obsessions are dangerous and want her to stop. Will she be able to save Earth and its people…or will she fail after trying too hard to show the world that she is worthy of her title?

Critically acclaimed author Kelley Puckett (BATGIRL) with artists Drew Johnson (WONDER WOMAN) and Ron Randall (OUTSIDERS) test the Girl of Steel’s mettle in these classic Supergirl stories. Collects SUPERGIRL #23-33.

But when the gods decide to merge with Batman as well, the Amazon princess finds that even the aid of Gotham’s other protectors, Nightwing and Robin, as well as her own protégé, Wonder Girl, may not be enough to end this evil reign.

But the Amazon Warrior must contend with far worse in the adventures that confront her in this volume collecting WONDER WOMAN #171-177, as well as select Profile Pages from WONDER WOMAN SECRET FILES #3.

And when Circe initiates her revenge against the Amazon, the world’s super-heroines join Diana in a fight against the evil witch and several other female super-villains.
