Come and get 'em

Action Comics #1003
By:Brian Michael Bendis, Patrick Gleason, Yanick Paquette
How well does Clark Kent know his own city? Are the threats targeting Metropolis new or something older and more dangerous than they seem? With mobsters being killed off and the Daily Planet staff hunting for answers, it's up to Superman to discover what lurks in the underside of the city he thought he knew so well. Who is the Red Mist, and why has Superman never heard of someone so powerful and dangerous? And what is Lois Lane doing with Lex Luthor?

Asgardians of the Galaxy #2
By:Cullen Bunn, Matteo Lolli, Stephanie Hans
ALL DEAD GODS GO TO WAR! Angela's ragtag team of Asgardians are hot on Nebula's trail - but she's left a grisly gift behind. With the power of the Naglfar Armada at her cybernetic fingertips, Nebula is unleashing hordes of undead gods to ravage the galaxy. And its only defenders are a slightly traitorous Executioner, a half-mortal Valkyrie, a lost Asgardian huntress, a hammer-wielding teenager, a suit of ancient armor and a frog. And if the rest of the team finds out who's behind the Destroyer's faceplate, things will go from bad to Ragnarok. Guest-starring Gladiator and the Imperial Guard! Rated T+

Batman #56
By:Tom King, Tony S. Daniel
The Dark Knight's looking to drop both the hammer and sickle on the KGBeast, whose rampage across Gotham City takes a toll on Nightwing when he's injured in the fray. Blaming himself for his ward's fate, Batman gets grimmer than usual-and vows to take the Russian assassin down like the Berlin Wall. Is even Gotham City ready for that much violence? The streets will run red like borscht if the Dark Knight gets his way against this Soviet scourge.

Batman the Maxx #1 (of 5)
By:John Layman, Sam Kieth, Sam Keith
Batman must face the strangest and most bizarre adventure of his career, as he meets comics' strangest and most bizarre hero... THE MAXX! IDW and DC Comics proudly present the most surreal, quirky, and wonderful crossover of all time! A devious new doctor at Arkham Asylum is conducting unconventional experiments into the human psyche, and he kicks off a chain reaction of disaster when he experiments on Arkham's newest patient, The Maxx! The city of Gotham is starting to merge with The Maxx's psychedelic mental landscape, known as the Outback, blurring the line between real and unreal. It's up to Batman to save not just Gotham, but all of reality, and he and The Maxx are going to have to travel through some of the darkest places imaginable-the twisted minds of Batman's greatest enemies! Join Batman and The Maxx on an off-kilter and unforgettable romp through the diabolical consciousnesses of Batman's greatest foes. Legendary artist Sam Kieth (Sandman, Wolverine) returns to his greatest creation, The Maxx, and returns to Gotham as well, assisted by mult-Eisner Award-winning writer John Layman (Detective, Chew). *Retailers: See your order form for incentive information. First new The Maxx story in more than a decade!

Cosmic Ghost Rider #4 (of 5)
By:Donny Cates, Dylan Burnett, Max Lim
The Rider is determined to save the universe by ridding it of the greatest threat that ever existedÂ...and that's why he's kidnapped Thanos to raise him right! How's that gonna work out? He's about to learn. Rated T+

Deadpool #5
By:Skottie Young, Scott Hepburn, Nic Klein
Ah, Halloween! Trick-or-treating, spooky ghost stories, zombies coming to life and terrorizing your local mall, elaborate jack-o-lanterns. Wait a minute...one of those things doesn't sound good! It doesn't sound good at all! Well, I guess DEADPOOL will have to handle it - if he can survive a walkathon turned zombie-thon! All this, and the return of a classic MARVEL VILLAIN that will send chills up your spine! Parental Advisory

Death of Inhumans #4 (of 5)
By:Donny Cates, Ariel Olivetti, Kaare Andrews
The Kree have imprisoned the so-called Midnight King - but they have not yet made him a slave. In a final stand, Black Bolt gives his all - for his family, for his people and for his honor. But there is more to the legend of the Midnight King than even he knows. The destiny of the Inhumans is revealed here! Rated T+

Doctor Strange #6
By:Mark Waid, Javier Pina, Kevin Nowlan

Green Arrow #45
By:Julie Benson, Javi Fernandez, Alex Maleev, Shawna Benson
In this Heroes in Crisis tie-in, Oliver Queen is forced to take a hard look at himself and evaluate his methods after he fails one too many times trying to do the right thing. It's a dark, depressing stroll down memory lane for the Emerald Archer, as Oliver must come to grips with how he's hurt the people around him. This issue guest-stars members of the Justice League and the Titans, but are they there to console OllieÂ...or condemn him?

Green Lanterns #56
By:Dan Jurgens, Marco Santucci, Mike Perkins
With the Green Lantern Corps at its weakest, Cyborg Superman and the Ravagers dish out damage across the cosmos! Now John Stewart, the Corps' last hope, can barely crawl out of his hospital bed!

Harley Quinn #51
By:Sam Humphries, Sami Basri, Julian Totino Todesco
Harley broke most of DCU continuity last issue, and in this ish, she's dealing with the fallout, namely the time-tossed hero of World War II called Captain Triumph! The golden boy of the Golden Age finds his black-and-white approach failing miserably in the gray areas of the modern world (although unfortunately, there are still plenty of fascists for him to punch). It's up to Harley to return Captain Triumph to his own time, but she'll have to put the kibosh on his do-gooding first-right after she figures out what 'kibosh' means!

Injustice 2 #35
By:Tom Taylor, Daniel Sampere
Gorilla Grodd forms a deadly alliance and leads an uprising to take out King Solovar and conquer Gorilla City. Against the backdrop of all hell breaking loose, the Suicide Squad decides it would be a good idea for teammates Killer Croc and Orca to get married! Love and death reign side by side as the series draws toward its conclusion.

Justice League #9
By:Scott Snyder, Jorge Jimenez
THE ROAD TO 'DROWNED EARTH'! Superman and Batman can't agree on how to put back the moon-you know, the one that went missing in issue #1. On the other hand, Wonder Woman and Aquaman have faith in each other, working together on a new addition to the Hall of Justice. Martian Manhunter takes Hawkgirl under his wing to test out the limits of her recently broken wing, and Flash and Green Lantern get up to some hijinks in the Hall's cafeteria. Can you say super food fight?!

Nightwing #50
By:Ben Percy, Chris Mooneyham, Mike Perkins, Travis Moore
'Knight Terrors' begins here! The big issue #50 kicks off an epic four-part story that brings together critical moments of fear and doubt from the past and the present. A young Dick Grayson hopes to escape the shadow of the Bat and earn the title of Nightwing, while an older Dick Grayson must deal with a blow he did not see coming. A common enemy unites the timelines: the Scarecrow, as you've never seen him before! This story goes deep into the mythology and nightmarish development of Dr. Jonathan Crane.

Shatterstar #1 (of 5)
By:Tim Seeley, Carlos Villa, Yasmine Putri
A gladiator, a warrior, a hero...the man called Shatterstar has been many things, but one thing he's always been is deadly. He's not a man you want to cross or you'll learn that fact all too well. Walk back into the darkness with Shatterstar. Rated T+

But one familiar figure has already beat him there: Fans of PLANET HULK and Marvel Studios' Thor: Ragnarok, rejoice for the return of the stone man Korg! Rated T+

What If? Spider-Man
By:Gerry Conway, Diego Olortegui, Patrick Zircher
What if Peter Parker wasn't the one bitten by the radioactive spider? What if the person who got bit was someone who didn't live by the mantra of 'with great power comes great responsibility'? What if that person was an egotistical bully who was only interested in taking care of himself?What if...FLASH THOMPSON became Spider-Man? Rated T+

What If? X-Men #1
By:Bryan Hill, Neil Edwards, Rahzzah, Giannis Milonogiannis
From the publisher that gave you OLD MAN LOGAN and HOUSE OF M... The X-Men as you never imagined! Welcome to the EXE/scape, a digital wonderland of business and pleasure accessible to anyone with the social (or monetary) capital for the bio-mods needed to log in... Or you can bypass all of that by being born carrying an .EXE/gene! But circumventing the login regulations is exactly what got the likes of Charles Xavier and his .EXE/men banned and driven underground in the first place... Free-roamers u/Domino and u/Cable have taken every dirty job there is on the 'scape, but when a simple data scrubbing job turns bad, the life of bio-mod magnate Erik Lehnsherr hangs in the balance, and with it, their very society... It's a whole new world of X-Men by Bryan Edward Hill (Detective Comics), Neil Edwards (Justice League) and Giannis Milonogiannis (Ghost in the Shell: Global Neural Network)! Rated T+
