DC COMICS

Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel, M.D., welcomes you to Evil

assured as only a clown princess of crime can-which is to say,
not at all. But when Harley Quinn starts using her patients’ own
evil schemes against them, it turns out that a much bigger, far
more dangerous, and truly life-altering joke is being played on
her.

 

DC Comics – VERTIGO

DARK KNIGHT A TRUE BATMAN STORY HC (MR)
DC COMICS
(W) Paul Dini (A/CA) Eduardo Risso
The Caped Crusader has been the all-abiding icon of justice and
authority for generations. But in this surprising original
graphic novel, we see Batman in a new light-as the savior who
helps a discouraged man recover from a brutal attack that left
him unable to face the world.
In the 1990s, Eisner Award-winning writer Paul Dini had a
flourishing career writing the hugely popular Batman: The
Animated Series and Tiny Toon Adventures. Walking home one
evening, he was jumped and viciously beaten within an inch of
his life. His recovery process was arduous, hampered by the
imagined antics of the villains he was writing for television
including The Joker, Harley Quinn and the Penguin. But despite
how bleak his circumstances were, or perhaps because of it, Dini
also always imagined the Batman at his side during his darkest
moments.
DARK NIGHT: A TRUE BATMAN STORY is the harrowing and eloquent
autobiographical tale of Dini’s courageous struggle to overcome
a truly desperate situation. It is a Batman story like none
other and one that will truly resonate with fans. Art by the
incredibly talented Eduardo Risso (100 BULLETS, DARK KNIGHT III:
THE MASTER RACE).

DIVINITY II #1 (OF 4)
VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT LLC
(W) Matt Kindt (A) Trevor Hairsine (CA) Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic
The much-anticipated follow-up to the fi ve-time sold-out series that The Onion/A.V. Club calls the “Best New Superhero of 2015″ is here! The acclaimed creative team returns for a perfect new jumping-on point into the expansive sci-fi saga that shook the world!

At the height of the Cold War, the Soviet Union – determined to win the Space Race at any cost – green lit a dangerously advanced mission. They sent three cosmonauts farther than anyone has gone before or since. Handpicked orphans with no connections to Earth, trained as devout Communists, and restricted from having families, they became lost in the stars and encountered something Unknown… Something that changed them.

Long thought lost and erased from the history books, Abram Adams was the first to return. The few that have been able to reach him believe him to be a deity. They say he can bend matter, space, and even time to his will. But, even with limitless powers, he is concerned only with the secret love he hid away from his superiors and the unborn child he never met.

Now, Miska, the female co-pilot of the group, has also returned to Earth…but, unlike Abram she had no secret family. Unlike Abram, she still believes in the Communist ideal. And, unlike Abram, she intends to play a very real role in the return of Soviet glory.

Earth is about to meet a new god. And she’s a Communist. How long can it be before the nations of Earth bend before DIVINITY?

Pat McHale’s Over the Garden Wall aired as Cartoon Network’s first-ever original animated miniseries and has continued gathering fans ever since. The great response to our one-shot and follow-up limited series prompted us to return to the eerie Unknown for more stories in this new, ongoing series! We’re thrilled to have Jim Campbell returning to join forces with fellow show writer Amalia Levari and artist Cara McGee for two original stories in each issue.

What It Is: Over the Garden Wall is now an ongoing series! In this kickoff issue, Wirt and Greg might have escaped the Beast’s grasp and made it out of the Unknown, but some things can’t be forgotten. Greg returns to Dreamland at night, where the silly creatures who live there help him on his adventures. Then, dive back into the early days in the Unknown where young Anna, the daughter of the Woodsman, must learn to survive in the woods on her own.
