Riverdale finds itself under an unexpected new leader as the New Predators wreak havoc on everything and everyone that comes across their paths.
‘City of Bane’ chapter eleven! The end is near as one victory leads to another defeat. As Batman reclaims his city from Bane, can he regain his sense of family? More specifically, when a man who is your father from another dimension has torn everything down around you, what will it take to build it back up? Especially when that man is currently staring you in the face and threatening to punch it. The final battle for Gotham City…and the cowl of the Caped Crusader…starts here!
It all comes down to this. With the fate of his family hanging in the balance, the real Slade Wilson must take on his most dangerous foe yet-himself!
Available to comics shops for the first time! In the conclusion to Brian Michael Bendis and Nick Derington’s DCU-spanning saga, Batman’s mind is trapped in the unlikeliest of places- inside a White Lantern ring! That would be bad enough, but his physical body is stuck on Earth, completely vulnerable to attack from his enemies. Good news: Batman’s freed when the White Lantern ring chooses a new recipient. Bad news: that ‘new recipient’ is Vandal Savage. Originally published in Batman Giant #13 and #14.
Target: Earth! Hal Jordan and the Blackstars will stop at nothing to bend the planet to its leader’s whims, and Earth’s greatest heroes pull out all the stops to fight these fascists. Betrayals of cosmic consequence abound! And why is Earth’s sun turning orange? We can only hope Superman figures that one out before it’s too late…
Seems like old times…or does it? In the days following the Invasion, the Tasmanian Devil pulverizes a certain cosmic starfish from space (and gets pulverized in return!), while the Peacemaker streaks across Russian skies to battle the Rocket Reds! And when you see the alien monsters descend on Dangerfield, Arizona, it’ll be more like ‘screams like old times!’
‘Justice/Doom War’ part eight! The Justice League is making their final push against Perpetua, but some players they previously counted as allies may have been working for the other side the whole time! Who among Perpetua’s children will betray them and join Lex Luthor’s war on justice?
Available to comics shops for the first time! It’s the finale of Tom King and Andy Kubert’s Man of Steel epic and Superman is captured off-planet, with Earth’s remaining heroes left to fend off an alien robot invasion! If Superman can break his bonds and rise up against the diabolical mastermind who unleased the attack, he can save his adopted home, even from several galaxies away, and begin the long journey back with the little girl from Metropolis whose kidnapping initially sent him on this epic sojourn through the cosmos. Originally published in Superman Giant #15 and #16.
Spider-Man. Doctor Doom. ‘Nuff said? NO WAY! The Chameleon has insane plans that have put all of NYC (and the very future of the universe!) in danger, and only Spider-Man can save the day. All he has to do is convince Doctor Doom to help him. Uh-oh.
