A super DC collection:

Inhumans step into the spotlight:

Guided by the other-dimensional Kree warrior known as Marvel Boy, the Inhuman Royal Family departs on an odyssey across all creation on search for lost secrets – and the last hope – of their people. Royals #1 is written by Al Ewing and features artwork by Jonboy Meyers!

To me, my X-Men:
Xavier’s dream comes full circle as Kitty Pryde takes the reins and assembles a squad of the most iconic X-Men to fight at her side. Storm. Colossus. Nightcrawler. Old Man Logan. Prestige. They are X-Men Gold, and they’re on a mission to be Earth’s finest heroes, even when that means defending those who hate and fear them. X-Men Gold #1 is written by Marc Guggenheim and illustrated by Ardian Syaf.

X-23’s new story:
From the stars comes death! An alien ship! A dying passenger! Two words uttered that will forever change Wolverine’s life – starting a non-stop race against a deadly transformative disease, a battle in a quarantined city and a mysterious villain with a target on her head. All-New Wolverine #19 is by writer Tom Taylor and artist Leonard Kirk!

Get in formation:
America Chavez’s first semester of college is off to an epic start. That’s right…homework on the first day! The assignment? A field trip to the frontlines of World War II! Most freshman would be intimidated – but most freshman aren’t dimension-hopping heroes with Captain America as their wingman! America #2 is written by Gabby Rivera and features artwork by Ming Doyle and Joe Quinones.

Slugfest with the Saviors:
Dwight must defend the ruins of Alexandria against the Saviors–but what exactly are they fighting over? Walking Dead #166 is by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard!
