    THE FIRST PART OF A TWO-PART TALE BY POPULAR “WJHC” WRITER JANE SMITH FISHER!

    "BATTLE OF THE BANDS", Part 1 of 2
    The greatest comic book band in the world is out to prove its supremacy in the most decisive fashion possible: by winning a “Battle of the Bands” competition. This isn’t just any contest – at stake is a first prize Tropical Island vacation! But two sour notes threaten their presumed victory: Veronica’s selfishness and Reggie’s mysterious disappearances. Can the band recover and end on a high note? A longtime advocate for kid’s comics, writer Jane Smith Fisher has devoted her career to telling age-appropriate stories in series such as “Cybernauts” and the highly popular “WJHC,” about a group of teens who start their own high school radio station. Jane has been embraced by librarians and schools across the nation. Now she brings her special voice for both young and female characters to Archie Comics in this rock ‘n’ rollin’ storyline.

    "THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE RIVERDALE"
    After reading her favorite “Oz” books once again, a bump on the head sends Betty traveling down the “yellow brick road” for real… sort of. Before too long she’s running into witches that look like Veronica, tin men that look like Jughead and scarecrows that look like Archie!

    "WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY"
    Staring out the window during class sends Betty’s imagination soaring… but will it send her grades sinking?

    PLUS: Other new and classic tales!

    BONUS: Puzzles, games and pin-ups!

    In an attempt to swing Veronica’s attention away from Reggie’s flashiness and back to him, Archie hopes to romance her with love notes from a homing pigeon. Of course, there’s no guarantee the bird will deliver the message to the intended recipient!

    "THE EXPERT SUPREME"
    In order to not be noticed making multiple trips to the food sample area of the discount warehouse store, Jughead does the unthinkable: he appears in public without his trademark crown cap!

    "TOO MUCH IS NOT ENOUGH"
    Both Jughead and Archie plan to indulge themselves this weekend – Jughead with a smorgasbord of food, and Archie with a bevy of beauties to date!

    X OMNIBUS VOLUME 2 TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Steve Grant
    Pencils: Javier Saltares, Chris Warner, Andrew Pepoy, Tim Bradstreet, Frank Miller, Chris Brunner
    Covers: Dave Dorman

    Nothing in Arcadia is what it seems. Beneath its façade of order and industry lies a corrupt brotherhood of criminals, cronies, and cops all drawing from the same tainted well. But there's a wrench in this dirty machine, a leather-clad, one-eyed, one-man wrecking crew bent on tearing down the lie of Arcadia, brick-by-brick. The man known as X cares about only one thing, the rule of law. Unfortunately, that law is X.

    X Omnibus Volume 2 collects for the first time the audacious, critically-acclaimed Dark Horse series. Violent and morally ambiguous, X walks the thin line between mission and madness and shows that the devil you know may be better, much better, than the devil you don't.

    * Includes X #12-25; "Someone to Watch Over Me" from Dark Horse Extra #28-31, all never before collected.

    MARSHALL LAW ORIGINS SC

    Publisher:
    Titan Books
    Writers: Pat Mills
    Pencils: Kevin O'Neill
    Covers: Nick Percival

    From the creative team of Pat Mills (Charley's War) and Kevin O'Neill (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) comes a new kind of law enforcement for a dark and dystopian future: Marshal Law. Just pray you aren't a hero...

    Marshal Law: Origins (Titan Books) is a brand new volume collecting two scorching stories from the Law canon in illustrated novel format. In Cloak of Evil one of San Futuro's leading sex queen hostesses turn up dead in what appears to be a bizarre suicide, and it seems clear that there is more to this insidious situation than meets the eye. It's time for Marshal Law to once more don his black leather and barbed wire -- and dish out the pain! Also featuring the classic Day of the Dead, collected with a new introduction from Pat Mills and previously unseen artwork by award-winning artist O'Neill, this is the perfect way to get to grips with the vigilante super-anti-hero!

    Part 3 of 4
    Award-winning mystery novelist Gary Phillips came to BOOM! with the best idea they’d heard yet. THE SOPRANOS was the soap opera of upper-class mob life. What do you get, Gary asked, when you transplant that tension to the African-American gangs in inner-city L.A.? Answer- you get the story of CQ, a young man who thought the mob was his family, until it turned on him, forcing him to fight against California’s crime families to stay alive! A potent mix of AMERICAN GANGSTER and THE WIRE for fans of Brubaker’s CRIMINAL.

At least she is until she realizes the impact she has on young women and girls, and must decide what's more important to her — her sanity or her conscience?

    THE MAN WHO LOVED BREASTS

    Publisher:
    Top Shelf Productions
    Writers: Robert Goodin
    Pencils: Robert Goodin
    Covers: Robert Goodin

    A one-shot, 32-page comic book with three amazing stories... In the title piece, “The Man Who Loved Breasts,” we follow Stanley, a man who has worked a dead-end job his whole life. While looking for a way out, he has epiphany that the secret to happiness is to make a living doing what you love. And while you may be able to guess what he loves most, can you guess where his ambitions take him!? The back-up stories are equally fun, with "George Olavatia: Amputee Fetishist" involving a fertility clinic and a man with specialized tastes, and "A 21st Century Cartoonist in King Arthur's Court," where we find out how useful a cartoonist would have been in the middle ages.
