BATMAN #54
DC COMICS

Dick Grayson-the original Robin-gets to spend some quality time fighting crime with his mentor for the first time since Batman popped the question to Catwoman.

SILVER SURFER ANNUAL #1
MARVEL COMICS
Writer: Ethan Sacks

What mysteries await buried deep within the cosmic multitudes of the Marvel annals? Why – it’s an UNTOLD STORY of the dark and tragic past of the SILVER SURFER, brought to you the mighty Marvel way by ETHAN SACKS (writer of OLD MAN HAWKEYE) and ANDRÉ LIMA ARAÚJO (of the THANOS ANNUAL)!

Anxious to find a world worthy enough to sate the mighty hunger of GALACTUS, Norrin Radd’s early explorations as the Devourer’s new Herald bear no fruit. Until the Surfer discovers an exotic alien planet teeming with life…and energy enough to finally satisfy his master. But can the Surfer really doom an entire sentient civilization just to save his own?

WAR BEARS #1
DARK HORSE COMICS
Writer: Margaret Atwood
Artist Ken Steacy

From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Handmaid’s Tale, comes this historical fiction graphic novel tracing the Golden Age of comic books.

Oursonette, a fictional Nazi-fighting superheroine, is created at the peak of World War II by comic book creator Al Zurakowski who dreams of making it big in the early world of comics publishing.

A story that follows the early days of comics in Toronto, a brutal war that greatly strains Al personally and professionally, and how the rise of post-war American comics puts an end to his dreams.

Internationally and New York Times best-selling novelist Margaret Atwood and acclaimed artist Ken Steacy collaborate for one of the most highly anticipated comic book and literary events!
