Hotwire's investigation takes her into the heart of darkness within the Necropolis, where she unearths a conspiracy to plague the city with a legion of mutated ghouls. Her detective instincts may have led her to the truth, but when the restless dead stage a bloody revolt, it'll take much more than that to survive long enough to do anything about it. Available with covers from Steve Pugh and Alan Brooks.
After the senses shattering unexpected cliffhanger from last issue, The Defenders/Offenders War comes to an explosive end in this issue by the superstar-team of Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness! The Hulk, Namor, Doc Strange and Silver Surfer have one last chance to save the women they love and the Red Hulk, Tiger Shark, Mordo and Terrax aren't about to let that happen. Can the Defenders triumph without the Hulk to lead them? All of this and a twist ending that you will never see coming!
WHEEL OF TIME #0
At long last, the Dabel Brothers proudly bring you the adaptation of Robert Jordan's epic fantasy masterwork: The Wheel of Time! The saga begins here with the Fall of the Dragon and the Breaking of the World in this prelude issue to the ongoing series, in this edition available with Regular and PREVIEWS Exclusive covers.
And the Shadow fell upon the Land, and the World was riven stone from stone. The oceans fled, and the mountains were swallowed up, and the nations were scattered to the eight corners of the World. The moon was blood, and the sun was as ashes. The seas boiled, and the living envied the dead. All was shattered, and all but memory lost, and one memory above all others, of him who brought the Shadow and the Breaking of the World. And him they named Dragon.
The dramatic conclusion to "Who Is Superwoman?" Superwoman's identity stands revealed, leading to a knock-down-drag-out fight the likes of which Metropolis will be talking about for years to come!
