The secrets of one of the creepiest villains of all time are about to be revealed! The death-faced maniac known as Skeletor has terrorized the people of Eternia for years -- but we know almost nothing about the history of He-Man's most brutal opponent. Where did he come from? What drives his determination to topple the Royal Court and claim Castle Greyskull? And does he really sound like Alan Oppenheimer, or has he got more of a Frank Langella thing going?

Find all the answers for yourself when Skeletor's past is revealed in Masters of the Universe: The Origin of Skeletor #1, on sale tomorrow at Curious Comics!

PLUS! Don't forget, tomorrow's the day to come into your local Curious Comics and grab some free Hallowe'en goodies!

Doctor Who: The Dalek Project GN

The dark years of the First World War gave birth to some of the most dreadful technologies of destruction ever unleashed on humankind. Chemical warfare... flamethrowers... the earliest tanks and U-boats... and the Daleks! If the scheming Lord Hellcombe has his way, the outcome of the first great conflict of the 20th century will be decided by these seemingly unstoppable armour-plated creatures from another world. But Hellcombe has reckoned without the one thing that can penetrate a Dalek's bonded polycarbide shell and strike fear into its mutated heart -- an appearance by the mysterious traveler in time and space known as the Doctor!

From prolific Doctor Who novelist Justin Richards comes a brand-new graphic novel featuring the Eleventh Doctor in a fight to the finish with his most dedicated enemies! Look for Doctor Who: The Dalek Project GN, out now at Curious Comics!

Talon #1

For centuries, the ancient organization known as the Court of Owls has employed a hugely successful combination of money, power, total secrecy and merciless force -- applied through their highly trained army of assassins known as Talons -- to control everything within Gotham City. Now, in the aftermath of the Dark Knight's recent conflict with the Court, the only Talon who ever managed to escape their control is returning to Gotham with a mind to free himself of the secret society once and for all. Yet though they may have been weakened by conflict, the Court of Owls is far from defeated. Does this rogue Talon have what it takes to confront his old masters and earn his freedom... or will he end his days as just another victim of the Court's many lethal living weapons?

The highly anticipated spinoff born of the best-selling Night of the Owls event joins the ranks of ongoing titles in DC's New 52! Look for Talon #1, on sale this coming Wednesday October 24 at Curious Comics!
