Written by LAURELL K. HAMILTON & JESSICA RUFFNER

Penciled by RON LIM

Cover by RON LIM

Adapting the second novel in Laurell K. Hamilton’s bestselling ANITA BLAKE series! St. Louis is a city of the damned. The supernatural is commonplace, and the undead enjoy free rein. But whether warm- or cold-blooded, the laws of man still apply — and nobody dispenses justice better than Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter! This time out, a child’s parents are gruesomely slaughtered by an unknown entity. With the child missing and time running out for his safe return, Anita is called in to lend her special expertise as an Animator — one who can raise the bodies of the dead. But as she pursues the truth behind his abduction, she descends into a maelstrom of voodoo mysticism and the many dark secrets of her foes, her friends and — inevitably — herself! THE LAUGHING CORPSE continues the exploration of Hamilton’s inventive universe of vampires, werewolves, zombies and ghouls — and the brave hunter who tries to keep them all in line!

Cover by LEONARDO MANCO

Jim Rhodes, former soldier and personal bodyguard to Iron Man, suffers a horrible injury on the battlefield. To survive, the best technicians of Stark Enterprises build him an advanced cybernetic body; with it Rhodes becomes a new type of soldier armed for a new type of conflict — a true War Machine! After stopping mercenaries from using a repurposed Sentinel to slaughter innocents, Rhodes learns that Eaglestar International, a defense contractor headquartered in the war-ravaged land of Aqiria, ordered the attacks. Joined by Parnell Jacobs, a former arms dealer, and Bethany Cabe, head of a secret R&D facility, Rhodes decides that for his next mission, he’ll do what no court in the land will: bring the corrupt conglomorate to justice! But before he can put an end to Eaglestar’s war crimes, Norman Osborn introduces the Dark Avenger known as Ares into the mix! Can even the ultimate weapon of destruction defeat the god of war — or will a deadly experimental virus bring down both warriors by turning a city of civilians into unstoppable killing machines?! Collecting WAR MACHINE #1-5 and material from DARK REIGN: NEW NATION.

THUNDERBOLTS: BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE TPB

Written by ANDY DIGGLE

Penciled by ROBERTO DE LA TORRE, CARLOS MAGNO & SCOTT HANNA

Cover by FRANCESCO “MATT” MATTINA

Norman Osborn’s Dark Reign has begun — and the only people who stand in the way of his mad power grab are the very super-villains he trained! In the wake of the Thunderbolts’ help repelling the alien Skrull invasion, Osborn was promoted to head the new security initiative replacing the badly wounded S.H.I.E.L.D. And while his team is comprised of super-villains, some lack Osborn’s unique killer instinct. And in Osborn’s eyes, that means they have no place in his new world order.

Now, Penance, Swordsman, Radioactive Man and Songbird find themselves locked in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse. But how can they hope to survive when Osborn has unleashed the deadly duo of Venom and Bullseye to hunt them down? Collecting THUNDERBOLTS #126-129 and #132.

Galactus! He's devoured worlds since the dawn of the Universe. Consuming the Korbinites' home was nothing special.

Written by MIKE BENSON

Penciled by JEFTE PALO

Cover by GABRIELE DELL’OTTO

Marc Spector is dead — is Jake Lockley about to join him? When your multiple personalities are driving you so crazy you have to kill one of them, it’s time for a vacation! Marc Spector was a soldier. A mercenary. A killer. And now, thanks to Moon Knight, he’s a dead man. But the avatar of Khonshu lives on in the form of Jake Lockley — a more laid-back personality who just wants to take a nice, relaxing trip in Mexico. But for him, this means bashing his way through bare-knuckle-fighting tournaments, hiring on for a “snatch and grab” on behalf of a rich and well-armed land baron, and going toe-to-toe with a guy named Frank Castle — who the criminal element knows better as the Punisher. AAA never recommended a trip like this, but then again, Moon Knight is no ordinary tourist! Collecting MOON KNIGHT #26-30.

FANTASTIC FOUR VISIONARIES: JOHN BYRNE VOL. 1 TPB (NEW PRINTING)

Written by JOHN BYRNE

Penciled by JOHN BYRNE

Cover by JOHN BYRNE

It was the world’s greatest comic magazine. Again. Not since the days of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the trailblazers of the very mythology known as the Marvel Universe, had someone so perfectly captured the intense mood, cosmic style and classic sense of adventure of Marvel’s first family of heroes – the Fantastic Four. Writer. Penciler. Inker. Visionary. John Byrne took these characters, whose powers resulted from each of them being bathed in cosmic rays during a flight into space, and launched them into realms where few creators before this had dared to go… Byrne reminded us all there was a family at the heart of this team of adventurers. The Fantastic Four has always been called “The World’s Greatest Comics Magazine.” The evidence is found in these very pages. Collecting FANTASTIC FOUR #232-240.
