As Mozen decides to take a direct, heavy-handed approach, the competitive, backstabbing Burando waits gleefully in the wings with katana and scalpel at the ready. Horror, politics, and squabbling surgeons, as Hiroaki Samura takes his award-winning samurai epic down a disturbing, gory pathway.

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse
    Writer: Kurt Busiek
    Artists: Cary Nord, Tony Harris (Cover)

    Fresh from his triumphs in the City of Thieves with a willing, wanton wench at his side, Conan's out for the good life-drinking, debauchery, and a nighttime looting spree so unrestrained that even the crowned heads of Zamora are displeased. All this attention-getting sets a rogue as wily as Conan on his tail, and if that wasn't enough, the Cimmerian's ways might just place him on the business end of an entire army.

    A perfect jumping-on point for new readers, featuring a new stage in Conan's life!

    SGT. ROCK: THE PROPHECY #1 (OF 6)

    Publisher:
    DC Comics
    Writer: Joe Kubert
    Artist: Joe Kubert

    Comics legend Joe Kubert returns to DC's legendary unit in the all-new 6-issue miniseries SGT. ROCK: THE PROPHECY, based on a true story!

    From North Africa to the Rhine, Sgt. Rock and the combat-happy Joes of Easy Company have faced insurmountable odds thrown at them by the Axis powers and lived to tell the tale. But when they find themselves caught in the No Man's Land of the Balkans searching for a religious prize that could ultimately decide the outcome of WWII, have our heroes finally been given a mission that will stop them in their tracks?

    It's 1943, and World War II has reached fever pitch. Somewhere deep within a smoldering, war-torn village in Nazi-occupied Lithuania hides a secret treasure that must be found and returned to the U.S. — unharmed — by any means necessary.

    It's up to the trusted G.I.s of Easy to save the day. But once they discover what the "prize" really is, will they be able to follow through with the mission? More important, will they want to?

    Join Rock, Ice Cream Soldier, Bulldozer, Little Sure Shot and the rest of Easy this month for this hard-hitting and provocative tale told as only Joe Kubert could deliver it!

    HELLBLAZER #216

    Publisher:
    DC Comics/Vertigo
    Writer: Denise Mina
    Artist: Leonardo Manco

    Now, award-winning novelist Denise Mina (Garnethill, Deception, Field of Blood), one of the hottest rising talents in 21st-century fiction, takes over Vertigo's longest-running title with the 7-part story "Empathy is the Enemy." Mina and ongoing artist Leonardo Manco open one of the most haunting chapters yet in John Constantine's macabre career. Constantine, still brooding over his recent ordeal, meets Chris Cole, an ordinary bloke who made the mistake of messing with a "harmless" bit of magic. He looks to Constantine to pull him out from the nightmare. But when Cole drops the name of an infamous Scottish occultist, Constantine realizes the nightmare is just getting under way — and he's about to plunge in. Wrapped in the unique look of acclaimed painter Greg Lauren's eerie covers, the new era of HELLBLAZER is sure to become an overnight legend.

After a brief hiatus caused by their, ahem, deaths, everyone’s favorite mutants are back! And this time, they’re bringing a host of...questions with them. Like why do some heroes and villains keep on dying, only to return from the dead? And why do other heroes and villains bite the bullet, only to remain dead? Who decides on this craziness? Is it some karmic wheel in the sky? Some fickle finger of fate? Or is it just some guy in the marketing department? Well, one such deceased villain, named The Pitiful One, is going to find out. When the Pitiful One decides that he’s tired of being dead, he assembles a posse of Marvel’s deadest villains to attack the world of the living. And it’s up to Doctor Strange to stop him and his evil cohorts—but he needs help from...well, you know. With Kraven the Hunter, Tike Alicar, and a few other surprise, dead guests.
