Dead Boy Detectives #1

Welcome to St Hilarion's Boarding School. You may have heard of the place; it was here that young Edwin Paine was murdered back in 1916... and here that student Charles Rowland met his unhappy end some seven decades later, after the school had been overrun by escapees from Hell. Not that death slowed either of them down much. Declining passage to the afterlife in favour of a new career as ghostly detectives, Edwin and Charles have tackled mass disappearances, horrific murders, missing magicians and other bizarre mysteries... but can these two Dead Boy Detectives solve the greater puzzle behind their own deaths?

Born of Neil Gaiman's best-selling Sandman epic, the Dead Boy Detectives are stepping into the spotlight with their own series! Look for your copy of Dead Boy Detectives #1 when it goes on sale at Curious Comics on New Year's Eve, Tuesday December 31!

But when someone else comes along and moves into his old life, Trevor has second thoughts... and now that he's become someone else, is there anything he can do to get himself back?

The classic suspense anthology series returns with J. Michael Straczynski behind the typewriter! Look for your copy of The Twilight Zone #1, out Tuesday December 31 at Curious Comics!

Holy Awesome Toys, Batman!

1966 was a time when the kids were groovy, the villains were trippy and the heroes were kooky -- but the action figures were, let's be honest, a bit iffy. But all that is about to change. Based on the classic Batman TV series starring Adam West and Burt Ward and featuring some of your favourite characters including The Riddler, The Penguin, The Joker, Catwoman and Batman himself, these brand-new 6-inch action figures faithfully recreate an era of giant typewriters, wacky heists and ridiculous deathtraps.

Don't miss your chance to make someone's Christmas Bat-tastic - especially if that someone is you! Look for your DC 1966 Batman TV Series 6-Inch Action Figures tomorrow at Curious Comics!

Justice League 3000 #1

Superman. Batman. Wonder Woman. Green Lantern. The Flash. Their names are immortal, the tales of their heroism legendary - but they were the heroes of the 21st century, not the 30th. Who are the super-powered champions who have assumed the names and identities of history's greatest heroes? What is their claim to the legacy of the original Justice League? More importantly, will the godlike villain Locus end the career of the new team before we can discover the answers?

One of the Justice League's greatest writing teams - Keith Giffen & JM DeMatteis - reunites to tell the story of the new champions of the future! This is guaranteed to be one of the most talked-about comics of the month - look for your copy of Justice League 3000 #1 when it arrives at Curious Comics on Wednesday December 11!
