DC The New 52:
There’s a slew of sensational titles from DC next week, including Swamp Thing #14, by Midtown pal Scott Snyder, and Green Arrow #14 by Ann Nocenti, Freddie E. Williams, Rob Hunter, and Aaron Lopresti, which features one of the hottest new characters of the new TV season. Look for new issues featuring Batman, Superman, and the Before Watchmen crew, and the latest New 52 collected hardcover, Flash Vol 1 Move Forward TP, by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato.
I loved Max Allan Collins’ Road to Perdition and the movie adaptation starring Tom Hanks and Paul Newman, and the new chapter of the 1930s-era gangster saga was just as great! Now available in softcover, though we’ve still got the hardcover as well, Return to Perdition is by Collins and Terry Beatty, with a boss cover by Lee Bermajo. Also look for Fairest #9, by Lauren Beukes and Inaki Miranda, with a suitably suggestive cover by Adam Hughes. There’s lots more served up by DC next week, and all you have to do is click the links below!
Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Vol 1 HC:
DC Entertainment presents the official graphic novel adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s “Millennium Trilogy,” brought to life by best-selling mystery novelist Denise Mina and illustrated by Leonardo Manco and Andrea Mutti, with a spectacular cover by Lee Bermejo. If you haven’t read the phenomenal books or seen the fabulous movie starring Daniel Craig, the jump-on point you’ve been waiting for is here, in Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Vol 1 HC.
Marvel Now! The first issues continue:
Iron Man #1 kicks off a wondrous wave of first issues from Marvel, as Tony Stark’s greatest invention becomes his greatest mistake–leaving the lethal techno virus Extremis up for grabs to the highest bidder! The script is by Kieron Gillen, art and cover by Greg Land, along with several variant covers, including a Skottie Young baby cover! Who do you trust to take out the resurrected dead presidents who threaten the world? Take a guess…it’s all in Deadpool #1, by Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn, Tony Moore, and Geof Darrow, also with several awesome variant covers, including…you guessed it…another sensational baby cover by Skottie Young!
Final issues continue from Marvel:
The old have to make way for the new, right? Final issues from Marvel next week include Defenders #12 by Matt Fraction and Mirco Pierfederici, and Terry Dodson delivers a cover with that certain flair of finality! Also on the way out is Avengers Academy #39 by Christos N. Gage, Tom Grummett, and Giuseppe Camuncoli. There’s lots more from Marvel next week, just click the links below!

Masks #1 — Alex Ross paints, and Jae Lee draws an original cover for YOU:
Get an original painted cover by Alex Ross, or drawn by Jae Lee, and best yet…YOU choose the character! Don’t delay, there’s only one day left to take advantage of this!
Masks #1 is written by Chris Roberson (I Zombie), and fully painted by Alex Ross, and stars The Shadow, The Green Hornet, Kato, and The Spider, in a tale of two-fisted action, corruption and intrigue, set in New York City, 1938. There are several dynamic variant covers to choose from, but most importantly, you can choose to have Alex Ross paint, or Jae Lee draw a cover for you, and — believe it or not — YOU CAN CHOOSE THE CHARACTER (from the ones who star in Masks #1)! This will be original art on the cover, not a printed copy, and keep in mind — we never said it would be cheap…! We’ll also have a Midtown exclusive variant cover by Mel Joy San Juan, for the special price of only $1.99, a savings of 50%! Masks #1 will be released end of November, and you can pre-order any and all covers today!
