Heroes for hire, at your service:

Look for a Black Panther 50th anniversary cover by Sanford Greene, and a hip hop cover by Theotis Jones!

The Quiet Room starts now:

Welcome to Pleasant Hill:
Who wouldn’t want to live in a friendly small town where burdens are lifted and the sun is always bright? The kind of place where everyone knows who their neighbors are…or do they? The spring blockbuster Avengers event arrives in Avengers Standoff Welcome to Pleasant Hill #1, by Nick Spencer, with art by Mark Bagley, cover by Daniel Acuña, variant covers by Matt Rhodes and Skottie Young, and a hip hop cover from Andrew Robinson!

Batman and Superman Midtown exclusive covers by Terry Dodson:
We’re thrilled to announce Midtown exclusive Superman #50 and Batman #50 connecting covers by Terry Dodson!

Superman #50 is by Gene Yuen Lang, with art by Howard Porter, cover by Klaus Janson and John Romita Jr.! Batman #50 is by Scott Snyder, with art by Greg Capullo and Danny Miki! Lots of variant covers for both, but don’t miss the Midtown exclusive covers by Terry Dodson, arriving on March 23!

The busiest legend in the comics biz:
Neal Adams provides variant covers for some of the hottest titles from DC Comics next week!  Damian’s world has been turned upside down and nothing is as it should be—but when an old friend appears, new adventures begin to unfold! Robin Son of Batman #9 is by Patrick Gleason who handles writing, art, and cover! Harley and the Joker have an axe to grind with each other, in Harley Quinn #25, by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti, with art and variant cover by Chad Hardin, cover by Conner!

Batgirl Family Business collected edition:
There’s a new Batman in town—and that’s bad news for Barbara Gordon! She’s already got enough upheaval in her life, as her roommate now knows her secret, and Livewire is looking to take out both Batgirl and the new Batman! It’s all in Batgirl Vol 2 Family Business TP, by Cameron Stewart and Brendan Fletcher, with art by Babs Tarr, cover by Stewart! This volume collects Batgirl #41-45, Annual #3, and the sneak peek story from Convergence: Infinity inc. #2.

Let it snow:
In the year 2045 it no longer snows, thanks to a catastrophic crash that has left the climate ravaged, society splintered, and the newly christened "Cooperative States of America" in charge! Only one man wages an all-out weather war against the system, wielding the forces of nature themselves as weapons. Is he a terrorist, an outlaw, or a hero? Snowfall #1 is the launch of an ongoing sci-fi series from Image Comics, by Joe Harris, with art and cover by Martin Morazzo!

Believe it,
G-Man and Andrew!
