New Avengers #1

They were the most powerful super-team that never officially existed, dedicated to doing what was necessary to counter apocalyptic threats to Earth -- meeting in total secrecy, operating in the shadows, and answering to no one. When their activities were ultimately revealed, they were disgraced and disbanded, earning the suspicion and mistrust of the rest of the superhuman community... but now, in the wake of the most recent manifestation of the Phoenix Force, all that is about to change. Starting today, the surviving members of the Illuminati will be reunited under the leadership of the one person who refused to join their ranks -- refocused, reassembled and reborn as the New Avengers!

Jonathan Hickman & Steve Epting resurrect the Illuminati and forge them into Marvel's newest must-read ongoing series! Start the year off right -- look for New Avengers #1 when it goes on sale at Curious Comics this coming Wednesday January 2!

Mara #1

A short while ago, Mara Prince had everything -- a successful athletic career, worldwide fame, and the adoration of millions... but all that was before she manifested supernatural abilities on a live television broadcast. Now, her entire life is being turned upside down. The media hound her every step. Her fans have turned on her. But now that she has made the transition from star to target, is there any way an increasingly desperate Mara can turn the situation around and get her life back under control?

From the endlessly inventive Brian Wood -- author of DMZ, The Massive, Northlanders and more of your favourite comic series -- comes a new take on superheroes you can't afford to miss! Keep an eye out for Mara #1, on sale tomorrow at Curious Comics!

Wonder Woman #15

Once, they were counted among the most powerful beings in the cosmos -- and the only force capable of defending the universe against Darkseid, despotic ruler of nightmarish Apokalips, and the merciless hordes at his command. Yet, mighty as they were, their civilization was swept away in conflict and chaos before the multiverse was reborn as fifty two parallel realities. Now, one of their greatest heroes has risen from the ashes -- but is this really the same champion of New Genesis who once lost his life trying to save a universe?

More than a year after Darkseid appeared in the pages of Justice League, it looks like the rest of Jack Kirby's irreplaceable New Gods are arriving in the New 52 at long last! Don't be left behind -- get your copy of Wonder Woman #15 when it goes on sale at Curious Comics this coming Wednesday December 19!

Scarlet Spider #12.1

He'd rather be drinking margueritas on a beach in Mexico... just another nameless gringo with money to spend and time to kill. But after being granted a second chance at life, Kaine has decided to put the darkness of his past behind him, postpone his retirement and take a crack at being the one thing he never thought he could be -- a hero. Of course, the superhero gig comes as a package deal... and now that every murderer, psycho and megalomaniac in Houston is his responsibility, that peaceful and anonymous life on the beach is looking better every day!

The ongoing story of the redemption of Peter Parker's long-lost renegade clone continues with a perfect jumping-on point for new readers! Look for Scarlet Spider #12.1, on sale this coming Wednesday at Curious Comics!

Judge Dredd #1

The future is a terrible place to live. On any given day the four hundred million residents of Mega-City One might see Block Wars, horrors rising from the contaminated Undercity, mutants fleeing the radioactive Cursed Earth, or an invasion by ruthless other-dimensional superfiends. On top of all that, democracy is outlawed, unemployment is rampant, resources are scarce -- and every single citizen is a crime waiting to happen.

The only thing keeping these people from tearing each other apart is the Justice Department and their highly trained army of Judges. Keeping the peace in the most dangerous metropolis on Earth is a tall order -- but there is one legendary lawman who has spent decades proving he's equal to the task. He's seen everything... faced the worst his city has to offer... and he's crushed it beneath his kevlar-reinforced bootheel. He is Judge Dredd -- and he is the Law in Mega-City One!

This week, the 22nd century's most famous lawman makes the jump to IDW for the beginning of an all-new ongoing monthly series! Be sure to get your copy of Judge Dredd #1 this coming Wednesday at Curious Comics... missing out would be criminal!

Walking Dead Volume 17: Something to Fear TP

The world we know has been swept away... and it has been replaced by an apocalyptic land of hungry undead. But for all the horror visited upon the living by the zombie hordes, more dangerous still are those human survivors who have seen an opportunity for power in the collapse of civilization.

No one knows this better than former police officer Rick Grimes. Even though he and the rest of his band of travelers have tried to settle down and build new lives for themselves in the safety of the walled Community, they are all still carrying the scars they earned under the murderous Governor's bloody reign. But some lessons must be re-learned, and Rick and those dearest to him are about to be reminded that in this terrible world, the walking dead are not the only things they should fear...

The wait is over! Catch up with the end of the world in Walking Dead Volume 17: Something to Fear TP, out this coming Wednesday at Curious Comics!

Neon Genesis Evangelion 3-in-1 Edition Volume 1

Fifteen years ago, the apocalyptic event known as the Second Impact struck -- knocking the Earth off its axis, devastating the planet, and sending humanity reeling to the brink of extinction. As far as most of the survivors were concerned, the Second Impact had been a devastating meteor strike... but the governments of the world knew better, and spent the following decade and a half preparing for the next stage in the assault on mankind.

Now, the waiting is over. Monstrous creatures have been sighted, towering over the rebuilt skyscrapers of Tokyo-3, immune to conventional weapons and closing in on the heart of the world's defensive operations. A catastrophic Third Impact is about to take place -- unless the children trained to pilot the strange gigantic machines called Evangelions can prevent it!
