AMERICAN VAMPIRE #2
It's been nearly 20 years since notorious outlaw Skinner Sweet was buried on boot hill. But when a group of grave-robbing collectors of Western memorabilia uncover his final resting place, they find much, much more than they bargained for. And: Pearl Jones was attacked and left for dead by a cabal of powerful Hollywood vampires. Now, a mysterious stranger comes calling and Pearl gets a second chance at life - and at revenge.
BLACKEST NIGHT SERIES 4 ACTION FIGURES
This series includes Wonder Woman, who is surprisingly transformed by the happenings of the Blackest Night (Read the comics to learn more!); Green Lantern Kyle Rayner, in his new costume as a member of the prestigious Green Lantern Honor Guard; Black Lantern Firestorm, who was once a member of the Justice League but is now a part of the Black Lantern Corps; and Black Hand, who threatens to destroy everything the Guardians and the Green Lantern Corps stand for, in ways no one ever dreamed possible.
All four figures feature multiple points of articulation and include a display base. Wonder Woman also comes with a lasso accessory, Green Lantern has a lantern accessory, and Black Hand holds Bruce Wayne's skull in his hand.
DARK WOLVERINE #85
"RECKONING" PART 1
After having done the unthinkable, Wolverine now moves into endgame-a direct confrontation with Romulus. But as the pieces begin to move, Wolverine's plan begins to tear apart at the seams-has Skaar, the son of Hulk, become compromised by Romulus' influence? Will the reluctant Cloak be there when Wolverine needs him? Just when Wolverine thinks he has Romulus cornered, he begins to realize that he, not Romulus, has walked into a trap.
The Spirit returns in an all-new ongoing series! Central City destroys everyone who lives within its borders... so it's a good thing The Spirit already died once! International crime syndicate The Golden Tree wants to help Central City's Octopus consolidate control over the underworld and the Spirit is the kind of mess the Golden Tree was created to clean up. They've offered the Octopus the services of one of their finest assassins to take his breath away for good - and the sight of this killer would get anyone's heart pounding!
