DEMON KNIGHTS #2
The siege that will reverberate through history to the present-day DCU begins as the Demon Etrigan and his unlikely lover, Madame Xanadu, face the Horde!

For the Horde is armed with the magic of Mordru - including some decidedly different dragons!
FRANKENSTEIN: AGENT OF SHADE #2
It's all-out war as Frankenstein and his new field team, The Creature Commandos, uncover an age-old conspiracy at the heart of Bone Lake - one that will see them suit up as the world's first "Necronauts," traveling between worlds and through "dead space," toward the mysterious Monster Planet.

GREEN LANTERN #2
Renegade Green Lantern Sinestro sets a course for Korugar with one purpose: To free his homeworld from the scourge of... The Sinestro Corps?!
The police are looking for him. Government operatives are hunting him down. And Cole Cash can hear the voices of an alien race in his head.

An electrifying new villain joins the DCU! Meet Brainstorm, the man determined to bring Los Angeles to its knees - beginning with billionaire Michael Holt.

Luckily, the last time he faced a problem he couldn't solve, he perfected infinite fractal mechanics!
RESURRECTION MAN #2
Mitch Shelley's past remains a mystery. So when he goes looking for answers, will he find them? Not likely, when he has to contend with the bounty hunter femme fatales known as The Body Doubles.
SUICIDE SQUAD #2
80,000 ordinary people vs. the Squad! Well, they're not really "people." Not anymore. With an entire sports stadium on lockdown following the outbreak of an unknown virus, Deadshot, Harley Quinn and the rest of the Squad must sneak past a military perimeter and fight their way through the infected to retrieve... "it." What is "it"...? Brace yourself for a stomach-churning reveal as the most brutal version of the Suicide Squad soldiers on! Plus: Bring a body bag - it's the team's first Squad fatality!
Project N.O.W.H.E.R.E. has put a lot of effort into creating their Superboy, and they intend to make sure he performs to their standards. And what better opportunity for him to demonstrate his raw power than to throw him into an alien prison riot? Good luck, Superboy... you're going to need it!
